Sunshine and Happiness

Hi Everyone

I had a bit of crafty time today with my daughter, she made a layout and about 10 paintings of goodness knows what and I made this.

I followed the sketch over at Skissedilla 

All the stamps I used are by Unity they are from a couple of their Simple Stories co-brand sets.  Some Unity stamps are available in the UK from Make the Day Special so always worth a look before buying direct


I followed the sketch quite closely and had a go at 'messy' scrapbooking with paints and distress stains.

Thank you for visiting today

Roxanne by unity

Hi everyone

I ordered some of the fabulous new Fashionistas from Unity a few weeks ago and they finally arrived yesterday (I think they swam over) so I had to have a play straight away.

This lady is called Roxanne

the sentiment I used is also by unity

I have to share the following photo.  The weather is surprisingly nice today so I thought i would photograph my card outside, i had 'help'!

Thank you for visiting

Unity Be Inspired Challenge - Colour


I am here today to share my entry for the colour inspiration on the Unity Be Inspired Challenge

I have used the blues for the main colours on my layout and used splashes of the other colours.

 I stamped the dress stamp repeatedly and coloured with spectrum noir pens.
The stamp is a recent stamp of the week club stamp and one of my favourites so far.

 I used paper and trim from Websters pages and the blooms, pins and chipboard were from a swap I did a while ago.

I have intentions of turning Heather's new party dress into a cushion when she grows out of it as it is so pretty!

Thanks for visiting today

Unity Be Inspied Challenge - Layout


I am here today to share my layout for this month's Unity Be Inspired challenge

 This is the sketch for the challenge and as you can see I have stuck fairly close to it.

 Here are a couple of close ups.  This stamp is a Stamp of the Week club stamp and I love it

My two girls found some sunglasses and despite it being freezing and snow outside decided they were 'cool' wearing them :)

The papers and elements are from 'Everyday Eclectic' by Echo park.
