November 15th Stuck?!Sketch

Evening all,

My layout example for the Stuck?! November 15th Sketch

{Warms a Mother's Heart}
Yes another photo scrapped of Rhys's departure. I love this photo of Mason giving Rhys a goodbye hug. After this pic was taken Mason began to cry.....big motherly sigh.....this made the rest of us very emotional.... I so love how close they have become, they understand eachother so well.

Scary how fast this month is scooting by....already mid-month. End of year events are starting to happen. Sidney has just returned from a week long camp held at Narrabeen (Nth Sydney). She said she had a fabulous time.

{ just about to leave, taken on Monday}
 her first big trip away without us
{ Mister 6 }
 Hugo turned 6 on Wednesday :O(  my little man is growing up....sigh! Last birthday of the year for our family.....Yay! (Now we can concentrate on Christmas!)

 Tomorrow, I'm catching up with some old, (and young,) friends. We try to catch up at least twice a year. So I'm really looking forward to that.

Now back to the Stuck 15th Sketch.....
 Some close-ups of my layout...

 bit of a close up of the texture work in the background.

The gears I've used are from Scrap FX. I've also used some BoBunny bits and that striped paper is 7Gypsies.TinyTwine from Craftqueen and I've used Patina Blue and Walnut Glimmermist.

Hope you get a chance to join in the fun at Stuck?!

Cheers and hope you have a happy and scrappy weekend

Stuck?! November 1st Sketch.

 Hello scrappy peeps,

It's been rather a busy week and one which has held a few milestones.
 Rhys turning the big 21, (in another country), Mason (16), started after-school work and Samantha wore her school uniform for the very last time & completed her HSC exams, today!......sigh!
  They grow so quickly....

Anyway onto Stuck?! business, (more like fun!!!!!)

 {Daddy's Princess}

Lots of Craftqueen goodies, including my favourite trim (above).

The Sketch is as below, but I actually flipped it on to it's side.
Well, hope you get a chance to join us at Stuck?!Sketches......maybe you need a challenge this weekend?   Be sure to put this one on your TO-DO-List.
Cheers and hope you have a great weekend

November Challenge @ OP&C

Afernoon all....

Well it's a gorgeous day here in my part of the sky....birds chirping, (just wish they would stop pooping on trampoline, grrr!)

Anywho the challenge over at Orange Paperie & Co this month is set by little old me!!!
.......and my hand-picked Guest Designer is the awesome Gwen Wruck.

I decided to do a BASE challenge.

first I will show you my layout then I will explain...

As you can see I've made this quite simple.....
 My eldest daughter Samantha done an awesome job with Sidney's make-up and hair, last Wednesday 31st Oct (Halloween). The younger three dressed up as 'something scary'..... Sidney came up with idea of a broken doll.....and it came together with ease.

 So my challenge is that I give you a start point (as above), and you build your layout from that.... Easy and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with....
 Hope you get a chance to join us at OP&C

Love and super scrappy hugs
Just realized I've spelt Porcelain wrong...(damn!!!)  Shall have to fix that up!!!! I suppose I am only human.....grrr!!!

Scrap The Boys-November.

This November at
 STB we are having a COLOUR CHALLENGE, other requirements....2 photo's and 3 word title.

Now, some of these colours I use quite a bit but others....not so much....although Iam using a bit more pink now days!!!!

 So my layout using these colours is on my eldest son, Alexander, but we just call him Alex, (the one who switched my mummy button on, as my hubby often says!)

 Alex turned 23 on the 10th of how time fly's
I haven't scrapped Alex in along time....My younger lads tend to be easy to capture...

I've used lots of fav Darkroom Door stamp, Checkered and another fav Donut Punch. Available from Craftqueen
I've also used some Prima and some Scrap FX gears, some glimmermisted canvas and of course some machine stitching....oh! and some waxed cord.

Thanks for stopping by and please by sure to let me know you popped in....

Cheers and Happy Scrappy you all.
