Sketchy Thursdays 4.28 - You Make the Whole World Smile

Head on over to Sketchy Thursdays to see this weeks sketch.
Here is my take on it. The photo was taken on red nose day 1990, which used to be a fundraiser for SIDS (cot death). In NZ we had a song that they always had on the ads etc for red nose day, called You make the whole world smile, that's where the title comes from, I printed out the words to the song on Velum and put it on my LO.

Here it is:

I Chose You

We may not choose all our family but we do choose some of it. This LO is a reminder that I not only chose my husband, but I choose him everyday.

I Chose You:

I wasn't really thinking about it at the time but seeing as this LO has a bird on it I might just enter it in Frosted Designs fab fri challenge... it's only number 3 this week.... :$

All My Dreams

Happy Easter all!

I have had this 8x10 photo for quite a while and have always wanted to do something with it but was feeling like it was too big... after some inspiration from my friend Lydia I came up with this LO called all my dreams.
I'm quite happy with it too :) What do you think?

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - 22 Apr 2011 part 2

I was so excited about this weeks fri challenge over at Frosted Designs that I just had to do something else. So I did a 2 page LO. Once again I have to apologise about the photos, I really struggled to crop these ones properly.

Here is my LO called Tree of Love:
These photos were taken in Wellington in a Pohutakawa Tree (a native tree of New Zealand) at my husband's Grandparents house.

Both Pages:

Embellishment: Wooden heart covered with the owl paper

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - 22 Apr 2011

If you have seen my My Favourite Things LO then you will understand why I just love love love this weeks Fab Fri challenge over at Frosted Designs. Its all about Birds and Butterflies!!

I have had this Kaisercraft Butterfly Album for a couple of months now, knowing sort of what I wanted to use it for but not quite enough to do anything with it. When I saw this challenge I knew it would be perfect!!! I am so super happy with the end result.

So here it is, my OTP Butterfly project called Live:
I have to apologise for my poor photo taking/cropping skills, but it should give you the idea, it is actually straight and has equal sides in real life.

I took this photo of my husband on our first wedding anniversary at a beach near Akaroa. I just love the photo so I was so happy to use it.

Always home:

My Favourite Things....

Want to know more about me? Well this LO is about my favourite things.

Here it is:

Here is a close up of the heart embellishment:

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - 19 Apr 2011

This week's fri challenge over at Frosted Designs is all about making your own embellishments. You can see the challenge here

I made heart embellishments using Kaisercraft's wooden hearts, painted them and bling-ed them up.
I don't often use purple so this is a bit of a change for me but overall I'm pretty happy with it. Its quite satisfying making your own embellishments too.

Here is my LO, called Love me deeply:

New Kaisercraft Lullaby Collection and recent LO's

My mum came down to stay in the weekend and she brought me some of the new Lullaby collection from Kaisercraft.

I used it to make this LO - Darling girl:

Here are some of my other recent LO's
Bad Day:

Beautiful Day:

Cousins and Friends:


 Thats all for now :)
