Ideal Papercraft Newsletter for May

Sorry it is abit late posting this, but anyway..... This month for Ideal Papercraft I got to work with Pink Paislee 365 degrees, I absolutely loved it I just had to keep scrapping until it was all used up. It was perfect for our holiday photos too.
Well this first page is from when we visited the Temple of Heaven in China last year.
OMG!! I can't believe it is nearly 12 months ago that we went.... where does the time go. Some detail shots for you.Love these alphas from Prima.
The pleated ribbon in this range is tooo yummy wish I had of bought more!!!
These photos were taken of Lily and me on the merry-go-round at Hong Kong Disneyland.

Detail photo.
I just love these photos of my little girl. She was actually getting her bum changed while we were at the Temple of Heaven.The way she was just laying back ever so relaxed I just had to take some photos.
Some detail shots, I just loved the big chunky gem brads that go with the collection.

Another page using photos from our holiday last year to Hong Kong and China. These photos were taken when we went on our day trip to Macau.
Some of the border stickers from the range, and I just had to use every bit of the red and white patterned paper.(I put it on every page!)

Well thanks for looking and all your comments.
Until next time Take Care.

The Colour Room Palette #4

Have you seen this fabulous new challenge blog? It is called The Colur Room
they have a gorgeous new palette of colours every Friday this is #4, so this week I had a little bit more time for free scrapping so I decided to play along. This is what I came up with, I really struggled with not putting much on the page it still feels kind of bear to me, so it could end up with something else on it yet.
This photo is a photo I wnated to take myself but it is a bit hard to take the photo when I wanted my own hands in the photo, so I enlisted the help from my brother and told him where to stand and what I wanted exactly and how to use my camera and hey presto! I love what he ended up with. Another of the ever building mountains of photo that I just have to scrap because I love the photo.Here is a little more detailed photo.

Well I'm off I want to give a few other challenges a go seen as I don't get to do them very often. My help my mojo come back a bit too.
Thanks for stopping by and for all of your comments.
Until next time take care.

This month's Sketch Challenge at Ideal Papercraft.

This month I got to set the sketch challenge over at Ideal Papercraft (formerly known as The Scrapbook Establishment) I decided that I wanted to do a sketch to use up all of the excess of scrap pieces of paper that we all have left over after every layout that we do. For this whole page I have only used scraps I didn't once use a new sheet of 12x12 patterened paper (apart from the cardstock of course!) This the sketch I came up with..... And here is my example..........................
I also used lots of the left overs of embellishments I have everywhere, I kind of saw it as a recycling page, to use up some of my mountains of leftovers I have.
Here are some more detailed photos for you.... The doilies I have recycled from old vintage doilies I have collected same as the doilie trim at the bottom of the photo.

Well thanks for stopping by and thanks for all of your comments I love to read them so keep them coming. I do have some other scrapping stuff I have done but at the moment I am unable to share them.
Well until next time Take Care.
