A Lil' Somethin' - Random Draw!!!

A fairly new blog A Li'l Somethin' are having their second sale!  I completely missed out on the first one because I was having a snooze before starting my night shift.  Hopefully this time I remember to check out the sale before my snooze :-)  Anyway, the sale starts 7:30pm Saturday 28th May.  Basically you go to the blog, check out the pretty stuff and email them what you would like.  Easy!!!  In the mean time they are having a Random Draw.  All you have to do is blog about the sale and have a link to the blog and then comment on their post.  Here is a link to the Facebook page too... a great way to keep up to date with what is happening.  Go check it out!!!  Here's a sample of the sort of products available...

Pretty awesome hey!  With two boys, I'm just loving all the masculine handmade embellishments... although I think they would look great on girly pages too!

The Boxx fortnightly challenge

This fortnights challenge for The Boxx was to scrap a photo that didn't contain people.  Well as soon as this challenge came up I new the exact photo I wanted to use.  This is a photo of an old Velocette motorcycle.  It's most likely a late 30's or early forties Mac (350cc), but may be a Mov(250cc).  Although for some unknown reason I put 1950's on my journalling???  It was late at night... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it LOL  I'm not sure to whom the dog belongs.  Something I might ask my Nan next time I see her... if I remember.  I've used lots of glimmermist on this layout and crackle paint on the chipboard bikes.  I made my own flowers and have used some pretty Prima centres.  Well this is just a quick post as I'm about to head to bed for a snooze before I start my night shift.  Thanks for poppomg by and hope you're having a lovely weekend :-)
P.S.  Apologies for the terrible night time/camera phone photo

Stuff2Scrap - May Challenge!

OMG! I've completed another layout! I have had no time/energy/mojo lately. So this morning I say down, picked out a challenge and just did it... no excuses! Here it is...

This is for Stuff2Scraps May challenge... a layout about a Mum and some chipboard. I've done a layout about how sometimes it's nice to spent time with just my Ma... with out my two terrors interrupting us every two seconds :-b I've used the 'swish' and the 'hearts #001' from Stuff2Scrap. I've coloured them and the flowers with my LuminArte pigment (moss agate) as well as my BG11 Copic Marker. My LuminArte is a product I purchased a long time ago thinking I would use it all the time... and I haven't :-/ I think it's time I really start moving outside my box and using some of the products that have been sitting on my desk or in a drawer for a little too long. Anyways, I ended up going nuts and using it on the square paper doilies as well as around the edge of the page. The paper range is from October Afternoon and those cute little yellow doilies are from The Chip Chop Shop... Love them!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a wonderful day!!!

Kraft It Up - May challenge

Hi everyone! This will be a very quick entry as I have two tired boys, with one of them being sick too :-( I have been doing very little scrapbooking lately... just seem to be so busy or too tired :-( Anyways, I did manage to do one layout over the weekend. The May Kraft It Up challenge was to use no patterned papers. I thought that sounded doable, so here it is. My apologies for the bad photo... I'm not sure why it looks so bad on here???
Okay, so my solution for no patterned papers was to fill the page up with photos, not too original I must admit. lol I probably should have made this a double page layout, but since I'm struggling to get one page done, I thought I better not go for the two :-) If you want to have a go at this challenge or check out the other entries, which I must say put mine to shame, head over to here. Thanks for taking the time to look and hope your having a great day!
