A little blue card ...

It has been a while since I played along with a challenge with UnstampaBelles so there is no time like the present!

This month it is all about Wind and/or Wings and Blue and White.

Apparently you can't use the same link twice so I need to have the card as a separate blog post.

So Card Part 2

I then used what I had left over from my layout to create a little card with appropriate blue ladybirds for the "wings".

A little blue layout ...

It has been a while since I played along with a challenge with UnstampaBelles so there is no time like the present!

This month it is all about Wind and/or Wings and Blue and White.

I decided to do it all and have used whatever blue patterned paper I had in my off cuts basket to put this page together also using a butterfly cutoff strip to add in some physical "wings".  The photo is a lovely scene of clouds and mist rising among the mountains (Blue Mountains west of Sydney) in the early morning. 

I then created a little card which I will put into another post.

thanks for looking,

 I used  ... Just as cool as you please ...
I use this technique a lot when I have more photos to add to a page but don't want to do a double layout.  I add 2 or 3 more to a 6x12 pocket page protector.

Photos on your layout must be a circle shape.
I have had this paper in my stash forever - time to use it up!

Feature a tag you have created.
Ahh the end of school when one door closes and the world awaits ...

Taking inspiration from this moodboard ...

I was inspired by the butterflies and the striking blue of the cushions to finally use this lovely photo of my MIL.

Thanks for looking,

What's in the bickie tin? for May ...

Welcome to our May Challenge for What's in the bickie tin?

This month's requirements are;

The colour GREEN (as little or as much as you like)
Add some STRING

This month I have gone with a very retro feel to showcase a (dare I say it) retro photo. 

This green background paper has been in my stash for a very long time and is the thin paper variety - a clear indication of its age.  To give the paper more stability I adhered it to a piece of card stock from my stash in a ghastly colour I knew I would never use.

Hope to see all your layouts in our gallery.  

Happy scrapping,
