Another Mini album using Prima

Another mini album I have not shared is a mini of my childhood which I don't have a lot of photos of.
I have used Tim Holtz Valise Die as the base and wrapped twine around the handle.  

The collection I used was Sun Kiss by Prima - a bright happy range with sunflowers which are one of my favourite flowers.

Yes there is a letter missing again -lol.

Prima Bap for November

This months BAP over at Prima is a gorgeous one designed by Steph Devlin:

 2012 November

I decided to do three circle photos and switch the hexagon and swirl designs around. I have used North Country paper a Christmas range by Prima for summer photos which were taken on Christmas day last year.

Be back soon!

November Challenge at Kraft it up

Novembers Challenge over at Kraft it up is a minimalist challenge. This was a good challenge for me and I created a layout using no Prima flowers and the new My Minds eye Christmas range - All is Bright.  I loved this photo of Kaitlyn where she was at an age that Christmas is the sweetest. You know when they are aware its Christmas but also not to the stage of demanding/expecting presents.

Wait a minute there is no Prima on my layout post will fix that! LOL!

A Little Miss Bo Bunny Album

I little while ago I created this album as a sample for Scottie crafts but my original photos did not turn out well so I have not shared this yet.  I made my photos black and white as they had to many colours in them to go against this collection. Kaitlyn is a bit of a poser!

My Twilight creation

Well the final installment of the movies of Twilight was released today and the other week I created a set of Twilight drawers for the occasion. I have read the books (twice) and seen all the movies on DVD(except the new one) and although I am not a die hard fan I did enjoy them Jacob lol.

 I have used Die Cuts with a views mat stack called Immortal Love and a Karen Foster set of drawers. I have also used Melissa Frances mini frames. A heap of paint and lots and lots of Prima flowers later here it is:

Some close ups.

The start of the last year before we have a teenager...

Well Brendan is now 12 as of yesterday which means we will have a teenager in the house this time next year...yikes! He had the day of school as did one of his friends and they just hung at at home.  another friend came over after school for a sleepover (so five kids in the house!).  We then went to Dizzy Lizzy a new ice cream parlour nearby for hotdogs for dinner. 

Someone was pulling faces when I tried taking photos so this is the best one.

We decided against having icecream there and to get some goodies to make our own Sundaes at home. YUMMY! Candy Floss icecream included.

As Brendan chose an icecream cake we had it today as we were all a bit sugared out last night.

Happy 12th Birthday Brendan !
Off to college next year!

Before SENZ I made a book based on the book Leanne designed for Janice and Teri to teach - it was perfect to showcase photos from Brendans birth to 11 years old.Yes the "t"is missing!
