Cherish . . . Layout share

Good Morning!!  Another week and another layout to share with you!  I created this one about 2 weeks ago, but for some reason did not share it on my blog!  I had this photo together with the paper and embellishments for quite a time now, ready to be scrapped, but I either had no time or no inspiration!  With our move I re-discovered the kit and put it aside to get it done.  I am so in love with this page, and it is simply because I love this photo of the three of us!

Products:  Prima, Prima and some more Prima ... :-)
I used Prima's Lyrics collection . . . stunning paper range to work with!!  I used lots of elements from the paper as embellishments.  This one was quick and easy!

Here are a few more photos taken at the same time of us. 


Me and Monique back in May . . . I really am missing my children right now!  Wishing that they could come for a visit soon . . . like REALLY soon!!!


And sweet, sweet Llewellyn!!  Just look at that adorable face . . . what is not to love!!

That's it for today!  I'll see you again soon!


Ancient History

Just a quick share today of one more layout created!  I had such a bad "scrapping" year with not many completed LO to show yet, but I am working hard to see if I can reach my 100 LO goal by the end of December.  With this one completed I am at 48 layout, this included single and double pages ... pitiful I tell you!!

For this layout I used a sketch that I received from Michelle van Wyk!  Michelle sends out a newsletter ones a month with lots of goodies . . . sketches, techniques and tutorials.  Definitely worth receiving!!  Here is my layout . .

Products:  Bo Bunny, Silhouette America, Sizzix
While on tour in Europe in April/May this year, I took LOTS AND LOTS of photos of all the beautiful old doors, windows and arches where ever we went.  And this was the inspiration for this layout.


I used Bo Bunny's The Avenues collection.  This is such a beautiful collection of papers and I knew they would be perfect for my Europe photos.




I used lots of tags to add my journaling and to say where each photo was taken.  I can not tell you why exactly, but for some reason I'm not all to happy with this page.  I had a different picture in my head of how it should have looked!

Thanks for stopping by today!  If you are spending time with loved ones . . . enjoy every minute!  Hugs to you all!

Me, right now . . . Layout share

It's the weekend . . . the first one for November!  Although we here in South Africa, don't celebrate Thanksgiving like our American and Canadian friends, I love the idea of it!  So for the month of November I am, together with many others, celebrating a month of gratitude!  I will dedicate each day of the month to something or someone that I am thankful for in my life.  I will not do this on my blog, but on my FB page if you would like to follow along!

I have a LO to share with you today!  This one is for the new sketch at Let's Scrap! 

Products:  Teresa Collins, Sizzix, Silhouette America, EK Success

Let's Scrap - Sketch 10-30-13
I used Teresa Collin's Tell your Story Collection for this page!


I stuck pretty close to the sketch for this one, just adding more clusters of embellishments.


My title was cut with Silhoutte double sided adhesive and my Big Shot and a Sizzix die.  I then applied silver glitter to the adhesive.  I really like the effect of the glitter!



My son took these photos of me on a visit to the Montague Pass at the old Toll house.  A lovely old building, nothing fancy, but beautiful with the stone walls and steps.  And it is in a beautiful setting, just look at this view . ..


You can see the old Toll house on the left hand-side of the photo!

To play along with this Let's Scrap sketch, you have until Tuesday at Midnight to upload your layout to the Let's Scrap site.  Bo Bunny is this weeks sponsor, and they are generously giving one VERY lucky lady a collection pack of the Zip-A-Dee-Doodle range!

Wishing you a relaxed weekend!
