I though you might have some fun playing around with these! ENJOY!
It's true! time goes by so fast when you're having so much fun! I've had a really productive night, lots of design work for a client done and I have just printed these off for my Something To Hang craft challenge.
OK bed time now.
Yay for Friday! I'm going down to Rotorua today with the family. The kids and I really need a break and change of scenery. Justin's been working on our house down there, this will be the first time I get to see it, so I'm eager to have a look around.
I wanted to share this with you all. It's a hybrid scrapbook page, using photoshop, paint and craft stuff. I loved the whole process from screen to sticking on all the embellishments. I really need to create more and use up all my stash!
acrylics, ink, stamps, prima flowers, gems, alpha sticker, tacky glue, plastic branch.
I recorded the whole process for you guys, but ran out of time to render and upload! So I'll upload it after this weekend for yah all!
Have a good one!

Hello hello! Hope you are all well! I'm so happy its Friday!
I have a date with the swiss ball in an hour and a half, after that its a prawn and avocado wrap... my mouth keeps watering every time I think about it! Anyway I just wanted to share a couple of things before I go batter my body up.
The makeover in my living room is almost complete. I just wanted to share a sneak peek with you all, because there are a few items I want to alter in the room before sharing the view.
For the next month or so I plan to share my projects with step by step instructions. I hope you stick around, I think it will be fun! Items include my magazine box, a huge piece of art to go above the dining table, some small pieces for the wall, a couple of cushions, etc. I'll even include some free prints to download!
Time to show you some hybrid scrapbooking -

Hey all! Its 10:30pm on my side of the world and I just finished this page. It's a lift of Jen Jockisch's loooovely page -
Thats all I wanted to share for now! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Hi there! Long time no posts - I know! Sorry... I've been battling the flu and bronchitis for over two months! Nuts I know! I started feeling more myself since a few weeks ago. I was a bit scared to hop on and post something about how I was feeling, just in case I developed something afterwards that would keep me from my normal daily and on-line activities.
So what have I been doing now that I have most of my energy back? Lets see - lots of housework! I hope I never feel like I've lost control of this again, feels great to be on top of things now.
Eating healthy and exercising more. I have put on soooo much weight this year, partly because I was always so sick... I didn't have the stamina and focus to workout and plan healthy meals. I feel really great even though its only been a few weeks!
Scrapbooking! Yes I scrapbooked! I went for a thirty minute walk yesterday and came back with loads of energy... so I decided to use it all up on these (sorry about the blurry photo, you can click to enlarge if you like) -

Thanks for visiting! Hope I can share more with you ...AND on a regular basis! Have a wonderful weekend all!
I have some advice for those who are still in their twenties.
I really wanted to get that out there, because all through my twenties (Except on my wedding day & honeymoon) I had a very negative view of my body. Even though I was a nice size 10-12 (for half of my 20's) I felt overweight and I hated having my picture taken. You know I really regret spending my twenties with so much insecurity in that area. This last weekend I have been thinking alot about this and looking back at photos of me in my twenties.I can say now, I really had nothing to worry about, I looked OK... I actually DID LOOK OK!
So to those who struggle in this area...
Inspiration for the pie chart and composition came from this photo posted by KIKKI.K on facebook -
Of course I plan on creating pages about starting my thirthies, so maybe by the end of this week I'll have something up here.
I'll be back tomorrow with a FLARE FREEBIE! so watch out for that!
Inspired by this fabulous scrapbook page! Well actually two fabulous scrapbook pages! This one is by melsboys, I saved it to my favorites folder a few days ago. And this one below created by Cathy AKA: cayla73. As soon as I saw her one I thought - that's it! I'm going to do some lifting myself!
I love melsboys layout because there's a lot of visual interest with all the different elements & colours. It's a great layout because I think there's a perfect amount of white space framing the composition. The photo isn't lost with all the colours too. In fact it's one of the first things your eye hits when you look at the page. Because firstly, it is dominant in size, the photo is bigger than the rest of the elements. Secondly, the photo is in black & white (with a warm hue to it) this instantly sets it apart from the rest of the page. Remember that if you have a photo with lots of colours, just de-saturate it, add contrast and it will be a lot easier to work with! I do it all the time!
Cathy's page uses the same principle of dominance with the size of her photo. She has a lot of patterns happening on the one page, but because the colours are co-ordinated with the photo she has achieved a seamless page design! Again, perfect amount of negative space too! What a sweet page!
Here is my page design, using the elements mentioned. And the freebie this week!
