Australias got scrappy talent!!!!!

How cute are these layouts!!! Jules is hosting an australias got scrappy talent for the kids over the school holidays. The first challenge went up today and my 2 couldnt wait to get into it (so proud i was lol). The challenge was to use your favourite colour and put on either stars and flowers and she also provided a sketch if they wanted to use, which both my kids did.

The first is haydens and check it out, he used the sewing machine, by himself(with me very close by) he cut out the stars on the cuttlebug, and doodled around the edges!!!!

Makayla also had a go at the machine (with a little help from me, she couldnt reach the pedal). But then she had to glue bling all around her sewing. I helped her with her rub on, but she just had to use that paper!!

If you want to go and check it out head over to

This next one is my sample from my challenge over at wicked princesses for there cyber crop this weekend. My challenge is to be inspired from the 80s fashion. I went with the big belts and the scrunchies (the scrunched up flowers). Would love to see what you come up with!!!!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend....xx

Beautiful sophie kit.

I got to have a play with the beautiful sophie kit this month for wicked princesses. I managed to get 3 layouts and 2 cards from this kit which is great value for money. It is a totally different kit of papers than what i would normally use which is great for a challenge. This first one i tried to get a lot of layering and lumpy and bumpy bits happening and i went a bit silly with the paints as well! Lots of fun.

This photo is my favourite photo of my mum and dad. Love it! Even though this is a girl kit i found i could use it in a bit of a heratige way.

This is one i have done just for me, again another favourite photo. Haydens cheeky grin!!

And last weekend was wicked princesses cyber crop. I managed to get 2 layouts done . This first one was from krissys sketch challenge.

And this one was from a speed scrap. We had 90 min from start to loaded, to complete it. It was a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by, i still have another layout i have done from the beautiful sophie kit, which i will share on monday.
