Blowing Out The Candles

Hello and welcome to my blog. I would like to share with you my page today of my sons Sweet 16th Birthday. Yes he decided that if a girl can have a sweet 16 then why couldn't a boy. He likes to challenge things and people. He decided that a Sweet 16 Slumber Party was what he wanted. It did challenges his Dad the most with having to wear a woman's pyjamas lol. His friends and brother joined in and had so much fun.

I created the page for the challenge over at Scrap The Boys. The minute I looked at the challenge I knew I had to do Riley's birthday. His favorite colour is any shade of blue and because it was a Sweet 16th be themed his party pink and a little white, so this challenge was perfect. 

The products I used are -
White Cardstock
Kaisercraft Patterned Papers
Tinby Color Crush - Glacier Blue
Lyindy's Stampgang Magical - Plumeria Pink
Chippie Title
Posca Paint Pen - Blue Glitter
White Journal Pen

Thank you so much for stopping in and please leave some love so I know you called. I love knowing what you think of my work.

This Is What Awesome Looks Like

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog. I have created my page for the challenge at 
White With 1 and Stick It Down. I also used it for my second post for the month at A2Z Scraplets because I had used 3 of the A2Z chippies. It is with sadness though that Deb has had to shut down her chippie side of the business since my posting. So with some time off work I'm posting here and entering the challenge like my plan. 
I just loved this challenge this month at WW1 and Stick It Down because I had just taken photos of my son Harley while we had a family day out looking at the Silo Arts Trail. I was also lucky that Harley had worn the perfect coloured top for the challenge as well.

But now on with the WW1 Challenge combined with Stick It Down.

I loved the fact I could use the photo of Harley straight away because it is such a boy colour for me, yay. This month at WW1 it is a two part challenge and you get to use the WW1 colour and the Sketch from Stick It Down. Perfect - I love the colour and I love doing Sketches.

Now my page -

The products I used for my page are - 
Wahi Tape
Dylusions Paint

A2Z Chippies
 Distress Ink
Paint Pen
Distress Marker
Tinby Designs - Metallic Melts

Thanks so much for popping in and I hope you like my take on the double challenge.
I hope you have a lovely weekend and that you get some time to do a little crafting.

This months challenge is a little different to the mood boards you normally see here. This one is a sketch. Originally it was going to also include the colour BUT you no longer need to worry about that you just need to use the sketch.

Anyway on with my page. 
The photo I have chose is a family photo of my mum when she was a very young girl. She is the eldest child in the family. My mum in at the back on the left. There is one brother missing as he wasn't born yet and he was the last in mums family.

I have used two wonderful chippies by A2Z Scraplets and used them together to create my title.

The patterned papers I have used are by Kaisercraft. Other products used were -
Distress Ink
Doily die

Extra Special

Hi and welcome to my blog. I would like to share with you my latest DT page for A2Z Scraplets. My photo is of my two sons in 2004 and this title is so true. Children were so wanted but doctors had a story for me that was heartbreaking. Then with a wonderful doctors help I had my first on Riley. All the specialists sad that was it and another would never be. Wrong, along come Harley so for my title there are no truer words. Extra Special these two boys are.

This months challenge is all about Fathers/Males in our lives. These are two of the males in my life that I love with all my heart. 
Now for my page - 

The products I have used are of course two Fantastic chippies by A2Z Scraplets. They are my title and Star Flourishes. Other products are -
 White Cardstock
Feather Die
Paint Pens
Dylusions Paint
Star Stencil
Modeling Paste
Distress Ink
Journal Pen

I hope you like my page and please call again as I love getting visitors. Also we would love to see you at A2Z Scraplets Facebook page to join in with us on this amazing challenge.
