CKC July kit

I have been away from my poor little blog for quite some time now. After we moved I thought I had my craft room all set up nicely and the best intentions for the new year. But as is often the case, we were still unpacking, I had WAY too much stuff and everything got bogged down and messy!!
So take 2 and I have had a massive clean out (still have way too much haha), my desk is clean again and my mojo is returning. Funny how that happens when you have a clear space to work.
I decided to start with making up this months CKC kit as I absolutely adore the colours in it and what better way to get motivated than with something you love. This has got to be the smallest CKC kit I have ever put together but I have come to the conclusion that I really don't use a lot of paper in my scrapbooking so why put a lot in my kit.
So here it is...



This is the original kit...
Walden-Pond
I have taken a few of the papers, the alphas and the clear words for which I had some pink ghost letters from a very long time ago and never opened! Also added in some background stamps and that is it. So now I better go and create something:D

Hope you are having a wonderful day ..Jx

May challenge - Show Us Your Stuff

Hi there. Today I am sharing a lo I created for the May challenge at SUYS. At Christmas time we moved back to the city after 8 years away and last month I got to have a big girls sleepover and catch up with my dear friends from our old town. As you can probably tell, none of us are selfie people! :D But boy did we have some laughs

When I saw this challenge I knew I wanted to do something about these dear friends and the great night we had because I think friendship is so important to happiness (and also because one of us is now taking the fight to cancer.)
This is the mood board that inspired me and the link to Show Us Your Stuff...

I hope that when we are older, the four of us will still be like that beautiful lady on the bike, just in convoy! :D haha
Thanks so much for popping by and have a wonderful day..Jx

May challenge @ Scrapbook Boutique





So a couple of months back I got my lovely little parcel of goodness in the mail from D-Lish. And what a gorgeous little package of pink goodness it was! Only problem is that I have been so wrapped up in my crocheting of late that I never got around to using it :(
Enter this months challenge from Scrapbook Boutique and I knew immediately what to do :)
Out it came and this is the result...

Perfect for this mood board...


Enter Our Challenge


So pleased that I had this inspo to complete this lo.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks for visiting my little piece of the world..Jx

Insta girl - Stick it Down challenge

My poor little blog has been sadly neglected of late but that doesn't mean I haven't been scrapping away happily in my little crafty space. Actually, although I have been scrapping and card making, I have also been spending most of my spare time on my latest obsession...crocheting :) So much so that even though I have completed a number of lo's I haven't been getting them up here and into their respective challenges! Oops :(
So I decided it was time that I found my way back and was going to start with a Counterfeit Kit when I came across the challenge at Stick it Down, through Juleen's blog. What a great sketch!
So here is my take. I flipped it but otherwise stayed pretty close...
 Here is the link and the sketch...
April single page sketch

It is school holidays here atm so pretty relaxed at home. Heres hoping I may squeeze in another one or two, sooner rather than later.
Thanks for popping by and have a great day..Jx

D-Lish Feb challenge

Well, I haven't managed a single post this month, until now but I have been scrapping away merrily. I have also been a little preoccupied with crocheting lately. Funnily enough in the same colours as this months D-Lish challenge. Very citrussy (is that a word haha) an didn't want to miss the cut off...
This is a photo of me when I was about 4 I think. My parents went to Singapore for a holiday and brought me back this dress which I LOVED and wore all the time. I called it "my jingipore dress"
Here is the mood board and link...


I wonder if I can squeeze in one more challenge before tonight?
Thanks for popping by & I hope your day is as bright and happy as this challenge ..Jx

A forgery in action...

Well after a couple of days away I finished this layout last night using my little CKC forgeries
Pretty happy with the way it turned out although it still needs a title - I can't find any alphas in my stash that I am happy with! LOL - and maybe a little story line. But can't decide just yet so decided to share it as it is.
Hope you are having a wonderful day and thanks for popping by to share a little bit of my world..Jx

CKC forgeries on the fourth

Just a quick share while I am waiting for the paste to dry on my next lo. When I saw this months CKC kit the first thing that struck me was the gorgeous colours and how much I loved it. The second was how easy it was going to be to forge those cute little banners

So I got my papers, some little stamps and wordfetti along with my punch and this is the result...

 I also made this one and got so excited I used it straight away with a little frame around the word...


The top ones are going on said lo waiting for paste to dry so will be back soon to share the final result.
Hope you are having a wonderful day and thanks for popping by..Jx
