Sketches in Thyme

Here I am sharing my latest post for Sketches in Thyme.

Each month the Mavens over at Sketches in Thyme share some great layouts based on brilliant sketches. Make sure you pop over and check them out.

This month the first sketch I have been working with is....

Here is my take on this gorgeous sketch...

I have used the gorgeous Echo Park papers ~ Sweet Girl. Jo @ Scrapbookit sent them to me to work with for the Scrapbookit Design Team and I just can't get enough of them at the moment!!!!!
There is a bit of Tim Holtz Distress paint and white paint on the background so that the patterned paper wasn't so stark.

This photo of my gorgeous niece Charlotte was taken not long before they moved to Virginia Beach, USA. She was and still is such a cutie!

Make sure you pop on over to Sketches in Thyme - to see the rest of the teams gorgeous work.

Anyway I best be off....I am busy packing and organising for a weekend of scrapping, relaxation and fun with all of the wonderful Scrapbookit Team, my sisters and my Mum! Can't wait!

Hope you have a great weekend,

Crazy Times

Goodmorning Everyone,

Welcome to Friday! It is so nice to know that the working week is almost over and that a weekend of creativity is close by!

It has been a little crazy around here....this appears to be "normal" ~ it would be nice for things to slow down just a little!

I am here to share with you a little project that I created for friends of ours that have just had a beautiful new baby boy. A little gift to celebrate the occasion...

I also made a little card to welcome Xavier into the world.

Congratulations Ash and Bid....what a beautiful little boy!

I have used the Kaisercraft 'Party Animals' collection. It is such a cute collection and even though it is party based it is so versatile that you can use it for so many different kid related projects.

Over at Scrapbookit Jo has announced her new Design Team. I have been so lucky to be asked to continue on the team with another stint as Design Team Leader.

Joining me on the team is the lovely Brenda Caldow and Ruby Bisson.
The girls work is just gorgeous and I am really looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful things they create for us at Scrapbookit.

Make sure you pop on over to Scrapbookit and check out the girls bio's as well as the challenges that are currently happening....

Well, I have a few things on the go at the moment that I can't share just yet so I best be off to work on them.

Have a great Friday!
