Disney Fairies overload!!!!

I have a taken some photos of Aimee's room walls, but I have edited them to be one big photo than a lot of smaller ones!!! The fairy stickers are on the walls that don't have wallpaper or the wardrobe (obviously, lol). They are about chest high on me, I have tried to keep them in a wavy line the same height as the lighter panels in the wardrobe!

This is the wardrobe, I will have to ask DH if I can borrow his wide angle lenses and then I might be able to get a good shot of it! The wardrobe is floor to ceiling and has sliding doors! We don't have any shelves or clothes rails in yet, soon!!! LOL


Sketch Challenge!

As I was commenting on blogs for the BBC (Big Blog Challenge), I came across this blog Scrap Happy (worth a look) and they were holding a sketch challenge!!! Perfect, as it included 3 6x4 photos exactly what I wanted!!!

I have done the layout, but I am not too happy with it!!!!

I have kinda lifted the sketch, I have used the 3 backing papers and arranged the photos sorta like the sketch, but anyways the sketch gave me the inspiration to do the layout, as I was in a mental block and couldn't think of how I wanted them arranged!!!!

This LO is for DH for Father's Day, which is June 15th (I think), might re-do it and crop my photos differently. I might print the photos in sepia and use more hertiage type papers!

I have used Papermania blue cardstock, Sandylion - Whispering Pines, Paper Adventures - Pajama Stripe, SEI - Robin egg, Bazzill blue cardstock - Journaling strips, Dew Drop brilliance - Mediterranean Blue, Prima Esprit blue and pink flowers, Prima Got Flowers little pink ones, 3 Silver heart brads! Making Memories charmed plaques, and some Crystal stickles on the little flowers and the heart brads!

As this layout was aimed more for DH I tried to keep from making it too pink and girly, but I had to add some pink as the girls feature in it too!!!

All edges are inked with the Dew Drop! The writing is done in a white Sakura pen! The title paper is from scraps in my scrap box, so I don't have a clue of the names!

The bottom photo lifs up to reveal some personal journaling!!!

Honest opinions really welcome!!!!


What's "Hot" to Me at the moment ......

For me it is two things:-

These little bottles full of bling and sparkle!!!

and no unfortunately I don't own these, display at my LSS! I love all the range, but my favourite has to be ..... Crystal

I love how you still see what is behind the glitter glue, it adds such sparkle!!!! Here are just a few of examples of my work where I have used Stickles, not hard to find because at the moment I seem to find an excuse to add it to all my pages, lol!!!!

The next that is "HOT" for me is BLING!!!! Well it does go hand in hand with Stickles really and you usually can see both in my layouts. On the last layout that I posted above, the bling swirl in the top left corner, I made myself click here to see how!!! I usually add a crystal or two somewhere on my layouts!!!!

I say it's a love of creating and making sure that my layouts pop ...... others say it's an addiction!!!
