Two posts in one day... what is going on

Well I guess I have had a little time to get crafty of late and last night I was inspired by the May Inspiration board over at D-Lish Scraps.  Peach Kisses.  Here is what I created.

Here is the inspiration board.  

My inpsiration started with the framed set of hearts, I decided to recreate my own version of this and that is where my LO started.  Below is what I made first of all....

Then I pieced them together

Added a bunch of scrapmatts, including some belts, mesh and keys and key holes....

Hope you like what I created.  
Thanks for Looking.

Playing with Words and Paintery....

I decided to have a little play this month with Words and Paintery.  Loved the colours so just ran with it.  Here is what I created.

And for some close ups:

I also used some fun chippie pieces from Scrapmatts.

Finding Inspiration with Kraft +

This month over at Kraft + there is an inspiration board

I took inspiration from the selection of books tied together with a piece of string in the bottom left corner of the inspiration board.  

Here is what I came up with.

I created the coloured strips with Gelato, and then added 'titles' to my books with some Scrapmatts Chipboard pieces and left them raw to go with the Kraft background.  I then tied it all together with the string (like the books are).

Love that little house, which helps create my title 'Home Boyz'.

So there you have it, I hope you head on over to Kraft Plus and check out the work of the rest of the AMAZING design team and how they were all inspired and then join us.

Creating with Scrapmatts....

Over on scrapmatts I have been sharing some fun creating that my son did during holidays.

There are more pictures on the Scrapmatts Blog

Then I have done a little creating for my Mother for Mother's day.  She loves cooking up a storm and spending time in the kitchen so I made this for her. 

Then a card.

Hope you like my creations.

Better late than never.... April 123 Challenge....

Now this was taking me out of my comfort zone.... and I just squeezed it in.

I am NOT a pink person so when I saw the 123 Challenge this month I initially went (NOOOO....), but then I decided what a better way to challenge yourself than doing something that you would normally run away from...

And for some close ups.... (the LOL is on the charm attached to the camera)

My grid is on some washi which is in the background.

Hope you have enjoyed my take.

Thanks for looking.

K+ is Cooking up a Storm.....

The challenge this month at K+ is a Recipe Challenge and it goes a little retro.

You need to make sure that you include all the ingredients as per the list and the colours in the photo.

 Here is what I came up with:

And for a couple of close ups

I have covered one LARGE Scrapmatts Tag in Washi and then used two small other tags, and used some NEW Scrapmatts Mesh (gotta LOVE this stuff).

Hope you like what I created and head over the the K+ Blog and check out all the AMAZING pieces created by the other design team members.
