My brother and his girlfriend spent a year in Oz! When it was nearly time to come home they rented this "hippie camper" to tour around. Unfortunately these are the only photos they took with the van in it, oooh the missed opportunities!!!!!

s.e.i hippie chick - paper, stickers, die cuts, journaling ties and a brads I have had forever!

Love You 2

A very simple layout! Using stamps and doodling. I used the circle bazzill cardstock as a template to trace on to a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock!

The journaling is about how quickly the girls have grown up!

Blah!!! just a little journaling on what's happening in my life at the moment, and oh yeah went a little crazy on the stickles, lol!!! but the paper was calling for me to do it, it took me over 3 hours to colour all the flowers in, I did start with the intention of just colouring the odd one or two, but well you can see what happened, lol!

Me and You!

I took these photos for a workmate, and she had seen a layout that I done of the girls and loved it, so I made this for her and on the last day of work before Christmas I brought it in and said it was just something that I done for her and she could open if she wanted as I didn't want her to feel bad that she hadn't gotten me a present. She loved it and was so overcome she cried, which made me cry, so for about 10 mins before the children came in we were trying to gatter ourselves together, lol!!!!

Baby Blue Eyes

This is my nephew, I love how babies eyes are so big and blue. I cropped a photo in so I just got his eyes! I have kept the layout simple as the photo and the beautiful paper does it all, oh the title is cut on my craft robo/Wishblade/Silhouette, I gutted the paper and used the bit behind the photo for the lettering

This is how the pages are going to look in Chloe's album and now for the close ups, lol

This photo was taken on Chloe's 13Th birthday and I love how it turned out! I also love this paper, I decided just to add the title and the frame around the photo and stickle the design, as I didn't want to cover it up, but wanted to add some ummph!!!

This page looks alot better when it is beside the first page, I have hidden journaling under the photo, about how poor Chloe was too poorly to have her birthday sleepover. I have added black stickles to make the swirls and flourishes stand out a little more.

A close up of the frame work! I cut out the middle, cut a frame and wrapped some ribbon around it, then made a bow and tied a star/flower charm onto it! I then glued this down on to the paper and added some crystals for some more bling! I then folded some of the paper back unto the frame

Some close ups of the glittered flowers! If you click on the images you can get a better idea of the stickle work.
