I scrapped...

Finally it all came together... think I just needed a day with no distractions, plus some great photos to inspire me!

Today I spent the day at the Manning Ranch scrapping away... finished of one of them here at home but completed these 4 LO's!

Just a Bird...

This guy was at the Mt Glorious Cafe in Brissy. Vicki took me there on my last day in Brisbane and it was a perfect day. I have a double planned with all the pics from the restaurant but this guy I thought was gorgeous and needed his own LO! I've used a Lightroom Preset on the pic to give it this whimsical effect and it had to be scrapped!!

I have used: Chatterbox Bazzill, Jenni Bowlin PP, Anna Griffin Journaling Tag {be in the MaDs shop soon}, Prima Flowers, Bella Chipboard Flourish {thanks Jules}, Scenic Route Chipboard Alphas and as always heaps of Kaiser Rhinestones.

This Tree...

Well this is the tree I used to climb as a kid, and subsequently fall out of as a kid! When I was in Brisbane Vicki took me out to see the house where a did some growing up and I got this pic of the park around the corner... I was rapt it was still there after 28 years!! The memories that flooded back when I saw it... amazing!

I have used: Kraft, Making Memories PP {in the MaDs Shop soon}, Jenni Bowlin PP, Kaiser PP, Core'dinations Cardstock, Making Memories Journal Sheet & Glitter Box Shapes, Maya Road Chipboard Alphas and a chippy arrow from I forget where!!


Simple but I like it! I was playing with the camera in the rain the other day and took this pic of the maidenhair fern that is climbling up the side wall, I just love it. Again, this one has a Lightroom Preset done, a vintage effect... love it!

Sooo for this one I have used: Core'dinations Cartstock, 7Gypsies PP, Bazzill, Maya Road Chipboard Alphas, Prima Flowers {on Pre-order for MaDs} and Basic Grey Buttons... oh and a 7 Gypsies Clear Stamp over the alphas.


Yep... Yes... this one admits I'm a girly girl. Not that I've ever denied it... love being a girl! BUT, I can still change my own car tyre! I had a ball doing this LO, again the pic helped... even one of me! Yet again... another Lightroom Preset was applied to make me boootiful {my new addiction, god help me when my trial runs out!!}

I have used: Bazzill, Making Memories Diecut PP {soon into MaDs}, Autumn Leaves Diecut PP, Scenic Route Alphas, TwinkyDink {?} Chipboard Diecut Flower With Butterfly thing {sooo up with my product knowledge there}, Prima Flowers, Kaisser Rhinestones, Glitter!

So that's all... don't think I will get more done tonight... and tomorrow I have a new shop to play with... eeeek!! So will be head down bum up working on that! Wish I could take holidays so I could get it all done quicker... but can't, so will have to do a little each night and see how we go! If I've not finished by the time the transfer is due they'll put a sign up for me on the site so we don't all have to panic that I've vanished into cyber space... although, with me behind the scenes anything is possible... rofl!! And then when it goes live for you all to see there will be lots of new yummies in there!!! All the clearance items will be moved over but I will do this later, for now I will use it as an opportunity to get the inventory perfect again as the clearance section is HUGE and varied!!

Okies... so that's me! Have yourselves a lovely week, until next time... take care of you!!
