Love, Peace

Welcome to my blog and my latest DT page for Off The Rails. You can join in with us on this awesome challenge over on Facebook.
So much fun working with the 60s as there is so much scope to choose from. It was a time for Peace, Love, Free Living and Music.


I chose a photo of John Lennon, amazing man, stunning voice and lets face it so handsome.
Anyway time for the challenge and my page.


 For my title words and flowers I wanted something from that time that spoke freedom and style. I ended up getting them from the internet and fussy cut them out. There colour, design and style were perfect and I also had to include that ever used peace sign.



I created my page on white cardstock and the other products I used were -
Patterned Paper
Stamp
Black Archival Ink
Distress Spray Stain
 


I hope you like my page and thanks so much for stopping in. Please make sure you hop on over to Off The Rails Facebook page and join in the fun with us.

Fun Times

Hello and welcome to my Blog. I will be sharing with you today my DT page created for the challenge over at Sketchy Boards Challenges on Facebook.
As soon as I looked at the inspiration board I knew exactly what photo I was going to use. 


I chose to use a photo of my youngest son Harley. We had had a day out a little while back and had come down an old lane way which was covered an graffiti. For some reason the extremely old brickwork and the graffiti caught my eye and I had to snap some photos.


 Needless to say I ad the photo in mind and the papers. This page was just going to fall together for me as I instantly knew I had some stamps that would be perfect too.


The products I used were -
Kaisercraft Patterned Papers
Kaisercraft Dies
Skull and Hand Stamp
Kaisercraft Stickers
Black ink
Distress Pens


The time we spent together that day may have seemed little but I know when Harley looks back in time as he grows it will be one of the big things. How could us spending time together be anything but BIG.

Because May is the month of Mothers I decided to do a page of mine. She was only a young girl in this photo and would have years of growing to become the most inspirational person in my life. I chose to use the of course the sketch which is a must and from the mood board the flowers and colour for my inspiration. 


Mum had  a beautiful heart, beautiful bright blue eyes and a beautiful smile to match everything about her. (I love and miss you Mum)

Born To Ride

Hello all, I know it is a little late with this post for Off The Rails as we have moved into the new month. I'm so sorry about this but I have a medical issue that I'm dealing with right now and it has been mind consuming for me and I have had to make some decisions. Now that I have it is time for me to tying and get myself a little organized for the journey I have ahead of me. Which I will be happier to talk about at a later date. For now though it is catch up time so here I go....

This page I loved creating as it was all about boys and I have the most amazing two sons. I chose to create this one of Harley who is my petrol head just like his mum. We love cars, motorbikes, race cars, basically anything with grunt. He loved the 4 wheeler and it didn't matter if it was riding this one or on the back of my 250 4 wheeler. 

Now for the challenge and my take. Sorry that it's last months (April)





The products I used for this page were -
White Cardstock
Kaisercraft Patterned Papers
Kaisercraft Sticker Sheet
Chippie
Stamps
Journal Pen
Archival Ink
Distress Spray
 



Thanks so much for popping in and please come back soon to see what I have been up to. If you hop on over to Off The Rails you will see that the new challenge for May is up and I know you will love it. It's a great moodboard for inspiration and it's all about hippies. Come along and join in with a time of love and free spirits.

Young Wild & Free

Hello and thanks for stopping in today to see what I have been up to. My DT page today is for this months challenger over at Sketchy Boards Challenges on Facebook. It's a great challenge so please hop on over and join in the fun with us. Right now though it's time to show you my take on the challenge. I chose to do a page of my two sons Riley and Harley.


I'm so proud of both the boys and I just love how close they have always been. Don't get me wrong sometimes I think they are going to kill each other lol. 15 months apart in age has made them close though. They are so different in nature but have a mutual love that nothing can touch and it warms my heart knowing this. I just love this photo of them. Young, carefree and and best friends.


To create my background I decided to do a tie dying method on white cardstock with Dylusions Sprays. When it was finished I tore around the edges. I then placed it on a patterned piece of Kaisercraft paper.
 


The products I used on this page are -
White Cardstock
Dylusions Sprays
Kaisercraft Stickers
Kaisercraft Collectables
Journal Pen
Kaisercraft Patterned Paper
 


Again thank you so much for stopping in and I hope to see you call again. Please hop on over to the Sketchy Boards Facebook page and join in on the challenge. You never know you could be this months winner, now that would be nice. 
Happy Crafting and may your mojo flow.

Cherish

Welcome to my blog and my DT post for the April challenge over at White with 1 
We have a great sketch and colour for the challenge this month and the photos I chose are of my friends daughter Rachel. 
I have chose to turn the sketch. Now for the challenge and my take on it. 



Rachel isn't a pink girl, nor is she one for dresses and frills but she sure is a beautiful young lady and she looks gorgeous in these photos and I love her beanie so much. She has the most infectious smile. Rachel finished her last year in 2018 on my bus and I miss her so much. There was never a day she didn't make me smile or laugh. I'm glad I still get to see her from time to time and that I still scrap for her but I miss her school days.





The products I used to create this page are -
Kaisercraft Patterned Papers
Kaisercraft Sticker Shet
Chippie Title
Chippie Hearts
Paper Flowers
Distress Spray
Journal Pen
Paper Doily
 




Thanks so much for popping in to see what I have been up to. I hope you like my page of Rachel created for the challenge over at  White with 1 and please come on over to the blog and join in with us. I'm sure you will love working with this challenge.
