You Are My Sunshine

This layout featuring Cooper at his favourite place in the world: The Honeysuckles at Victoria's 90 mile beach, is my entry for the: 

Blue Fern Studios August challenge: Three Collections and Me

I have used the Seaside Collection. I love the quality of their nice and thick!!!

It is very rare for me to do any stitching on my layouts as I hate sewing and struggle with even sewing a missing button back on a shirt.
I recently purchased some Prima Art Alchemy Opal Magic paints and used a couple of the colours to mix into my 'sand and rubble' and love their effect. The colours are so pretty. The other ingredients in my rubble are texture gel, Prima Art Stones and Prima Glass Beads and Glass Glitter. The shells on my layout are all shells we collected on the beach that day. The flowers are from Orchid Crafts and I had a few seaside embellies in my stash that I added. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Back from my quick trip to New York and here is my second sketch challenge entry for the month.
This is for the challenge over at Scrapping Clearly

Friday, 5 August 2016


I decided just last week to make a quick visit to see my kids in NY and I wanted to make a quick couple of pages for my dear friend Patti who lives in Minnesota and as I am a very slow scrapper I used a couple of sketches to help hurry things along. Patti and I are kindered spirits through our mutual love of Golden Retrievers. She takes the most awesome photos of her two, Finn & Teddy, although I'm sure it helps that they are so photogenic.

For my first layout I used the sketch from the August challenge at Stuck?!Sketches

I have used papers from Kaisercraft and Maja Design and the chippie is from Scrapmatts.
