.... not usually a word I use to describe my now 6 yrs old son,
but in this photo, he truely was my little "ANGEL"!

This is another LO for the Challenge Heaven Cyber Crop : ) Feel like I'm on a roll at the moment ! This challenge you needed Red, Black & Silver and Metal ... I really enjoyed playing with stamps on this one, I just love the effect of Metallic Silver Staz-on !! I also made my own flower used my TH flower die and added an earring to the centre of it. My friend on a recent visit game me some earring she had picked up cheap and knew I'd be able to use them : ) Gotta love that ! I used TH distress emboss powder for the lettering on silver paper, I have also added TH wings (LOVE THEM) and a RW chippie ...
Thanks for looking x

The nap time RUNNER !

Boy am I glad to have finished this LO !!
I was planning on getting some of the Challenges done before the Cyber Crop started so I could show them to the members as example BUT my my mojo has been a little absent : ( I had this on my desk for about 10 days and kept walking up to it, having a look and then walking away again. Today I sat and finished it YAY !!!
This is for Cyber Crop Challenge #1 at Challenge Heaven, you are to use Turquoise, Yellow and White and also to use paint. I have used white and turquiose paint and then clear (Ranger Rock Candy) crackle paint over it, as the background on the Cardstock. I have used the gorgeous My Minds Eye, Fine and Dandy PP's. I have also added a Kaiser Rhinestone Flouish and felt alpha's. I am glad this
one is off my desk and I have alsost finished another : )
Might be able to share tomorrow !! Stay tuned ...

There is also a Kids Challenge too .... here is Mr Ryan's LO : )
The kids criteria is simply an outside picture of them and to use the word 'play', he picked out some very old background paper I have had for years, and also some PP with bugs on it, which he kindly asked me to cut them out. He also HAD to use the cuttlebug, and decided he would use my TH die to make a couple of leaves !
For some reason he only wanted to use the 'P' and 'Y' alpha's and wanted texta for the middle 2 letters, CUTE !!

Thanks for stopping by : )

Challenge Heaven Cyper Croppin

The Cyber Crop has started over at Challenge Heaven, and on Friday night DT Becci instructed the members in a 'Blind Scrap'. I had given it a test run previously and this is what I came up with.
The pic is my youngest catching rain drops, totally love this photo !!
I have used Cosmo Cricket Earth Love PP's and a Dusty Attic Chipboard from Abundantias Gold. I have painted the chipboard with suede glimmermist and also used a couple of different smooch's to add some bright color to it, really like how the chipboard has come up.
This challenge is still open and you have til Thursday 23rd June to upload your LO !
So why not pop on over and have a go ! Full instructions in the forum !

My Boys

I have been a productive girl on the weekend, but there is only 1 LO I can share right now ... I have had a go at 'Grunge' in my take on the Series Challenge at Challenge Heaven. The criteria is to use 3-4 pics in a series and use stars. I thought I should scrap these pics of all 3 of DS's, I took these pics on mothers day : ) Thought that Mothers Day would be the perfect opportunity to get them all out together for a bit of a photo shoot at a gorgeous old church, I didn't get the amazing pics I was hoping for, but what I did get is pics capturing what they are really like, and that's everything I LOVE about them ...
I have used a Kaiser Rewind PP for background and some embellishments, and glimmermisted over a piece of mesh and also spattered and squirted some on too. I have also used a TH film strip stamp and a star stamp.

Challenge Heaven have a Cyber Crop coming up ... hope to see you there : )

Here is a sneak peek at one of the LO's I have done for the CC !! Oh I'm getting so excited !!!

Thanks for stopping by x

Why ?? Because all the new Challenges are being loaded, where ever I look for inspiration there is activity and new DT examples, and I just love it !!
I have a LO to share as a DT example too, this is a Negative Space Challenge over in the new June Challenges, at Challenge Heaven !! The criteria is too leave atleast 1/2 of the page BLANK and to use a charm somewhere on the LO.
Here is my example, the pic is me watching the sunset on New Year Eve 2010, just to make sure 2010 was finally over !! Was not a great year for me, personally.

Thanks for popping by for a look x
