Umm..some layouts to share
Well, it's been a little while since I popped a layout on here (it feels like it's been awhile anyway) so here are a couple that I have done since Friday. "The Sweetness of Friendship" was for the 1,2,3 Blog's March cybercrop - the challenge being no cardstock, a quote and hearts. Love this photo of Sienna and Alannah - so adorable. I mainly used Urban Lily pp and Sassafras Lass Scrumptious Diecut trims - love that colour combo, it's one of my favs!
The other layout I finished last night, for the Forever Always cybercrop - this challenge was to use 'diva' or 'superstar' photos of you, use a song title for your title, and the song's lyrics as your journalling. So my journalling reads "Youth is like diamonds in the sun and diamonds are forever. I want to be forever young". That song just called out to me for this layout, cos when I took them (yes - they are self-portrait LOL) I was just having fun, I was home alone, and wearing these faddy, fashionable, HUGE sunglasses and I felt young. It was such a laugh! :-) The main products I used on this were the Bam Pop diecut frames, Basic Grey pp & rub-ons, Heidi Swapp alphabets & floral centres and the Delish Designs rub-ons.
I'm also involved in a photo swap with two lovely ladies - Karen Day and Liz Weber. Now, I've already finished and posted off Karen's layout to her, so once she receives it, I'll hopefully be able to pop it on here. And I'm part way through doing the layout for Liz - I hope you don't mind bright layouts Liz :-). Liz, the superwhiz, has already finished her layout for me and it is just so pretty - I love it and can't wait to see it in real life.
Other than scrapping, Roh and I cleaned up the front yard a bit yesterday and Roh finished off our water feature. I'll try to pop a piccie up next post but it is really cool and I love the sound of trickling water (and it's environmentally friendly - recycling it's water continually :-P). Hopefully if we get rain on and off over the next few days, we'll be able to pop some fresh lovely flowers into our garden. It needs a bit of colour, although the lavendar is starting to blossom again.
At the moment, the house is so quiet. All I can hear is my Bernard Fanning CD and the sound of the keyboard letters being hit. It's fantastic. Roh is off on a walk with his brother, and the kids are having a sleep-over with the ever popular Auntie Reeze and Uncle Nath. I've got many errands to run tomorrow, so it will be even quicker without the kids. I think they are coming home early arvo, so that will be great.
Oh, just a quick plug for all you Melbournites - this Friday, Good Friday, Crop for Kids is on (see blog link on sidebar). It's going to be a fantastic day, and is raising money for an even better cause - the Melbourne Royal Childrens Hospital, so if you haven't got anything planned, maybe contact the girls and buy a ticket. Would love to meet you there!
Ok, this has turned into quite a long post, so I'll sign off now. Enjoy your Sunday night!
