“LOAD Days 6 7& 8”

I have had a busy few days so a bit behind on updating my LOAD cards! Yesterday was a shopping day in Geelong with my sister and 4 teens! Wow that tested my stamina! lol!

I have been doing a OTP project today also and making a few cards to get in front for the week also! 🙂

Day 6 – I have been wanting to try this fab technique the lucky girls at SU Convention were shown! It is a stamped layering technique and is fun and quick to do! It looks complicated as that is what I thought too!  I did this one in Choc Chip, Very Vanilla and the Delicate Doily Stamp set!

Day 7 – Of course I had to do another one and this time with Papillion Potpourri! Stamped the gorgeous En Francis background then the butterflies on top!

Day 8 – I didn’t want to waste the off cuts of my OTP project today so made a few cards! These were from the Precious Moments Collection from Kaiser! They are lovely soft feminine colours and they are sweet! 🙂 I think I will make Mums Birthday present with these also! 🙂

Stayed tuned for a few more cards to come!!

“Back 2 School & a Layout!”

I have had a busy day today with Jayden my 15 year old!  He is ready to go back to school next yr and he will be in Yr 10. I have been home schooling him since May 2010, and he has been handling it really well!

With school holidays only 2 days away we wanted to get it finalized so he didn’t miss out on any subjects! We spoke to the Yr 10 Co-ordinator over at the College today and he has picked his subjects and I am enrolling him again tomorrow!

He is very excited and look forward to seeing his friends and getting back to a normal school life next yr!! He will be doing 4 compulsory subjects, 6 electives and an extra VET (Victorian Education & Training) subject in Automotive which will give him a certificate at the end of Yr 11. I am very proud of him and I know he is ready to go back to school in 2013!!

I also wanted today to get Gina’s challenge done over at The Boxx and was trying to find a couple of pics that would suit her sketch! I found these two of a camping trip from a few years a go!

I don’t mind camping but it is a bit rough with no ladies amenities! Yes you can laugh but not funny I can tell you! Never will I be going there again un-prepared!!

                             This is Gina’s 12×12 sketch for us to use!

(Click on image for a better view! 🙂 )

And this is my 8.5x 11 version of her sketch! I used some retired SU papers, my new markers with my spritzing tool to create my misted background,new doily dies, Language of Friendship stamp set and match punch.

“A Day Without Thinking!”

I know that is a strange title for a layout, but as I am such a thinker and stresser I thought it was appropriate!!  The boys took this pic of me and for a change I look pretty ‘stress-free’! lol

I created this for Joy’s #2 Challenge at H & S! Use no pp on your layout!  I did some misting and stamping, embossing, and used some dies to make some embellies!! All Stampin’ Up! except the emboss folders!!

Another card using my scraps!!!

I embossed the background, stamped the doily and made the flowers!!
