Hello and a huge welcome to my blog. I would like to share with you my latest Tutorial which you can find at the A2ZScraplets Blog. I have used some great chippies and you can find out how I did them there. We also have a great challenge over on the A2Z Scraplets Challenge page on Facebook so please hop on over an join in with that too. You never know you just might be this months lucky one.
Now for my journal -

I love getting messy these days and when doing this background and the chipboards I sure did get messy. Paint, baby wipes, ink, stencils ink, stamps and so much more = messy fun. 
Stamping flowers, cutting them out and colouring them with Distress Crayons along with rub-ons are some more of the things that have made the background. 

I love this phrase and I hope it applies to everyone. It is such a great chippie and you can find it in the A2Z Scraplets Store. If they are dulling your sparkle it's time asses so you get that sparkle back. We all need it.

These fantastic Dandelions and birds are also available in the A2Z Scraplets Store along with so many other products. Check it out, anything you could want is there and if you cant find it or want something different you only have to contact Deb and you can get it custom made.

Some of the products I used are - 
Dylusions Paint
Pebeo Studio Acrylics - High Viscosity IIridescent 
Distress Crayons

Archivsl Ink - Jet Black

So Special

Hello and as always welcome to my Blog. I hope that you are enjoying your Queens Birthday long weekend as much as I am. Time with my boys, gardening and some crafting. Loving all three things but the gardening isn't to high on the list. My boys and crafting I would rather only do but if I don't get out in the garden it wont get done.

My So Proud page is of my two sons Riley and Harley and has been created for the WW1 Challenge and I have used A2Z Scraplets chippies on it. 
For the Challenge at WW1 this month there is of course the colour and this month it is Space Frontier (Grey) and also a sketch. 

I chose to use some different shades of Grey in Kaisercraft Patterned Papers along with a Kaisercraft Feathers Die. My title and bricks are the A2Z Chippes I chose. 

The other products I used are -
Archival Ink
Dylusions Paint
Wshi Tape
Journal Pen

Thank you for popping in to see my latest creation for the WW1 Challenge. Please keep calling back as I love visitors and there is always something happening here for you to see.
