A few layouts to share

I stumbled across a new site the other day called Scraps of Us. Their current challenge is to create a layout using the photo below as your inspiration

And this is what took me 4 days to come up with.

Some of you may recognise the rhinestone tree which I used at Ready Set Scraps March Cyber Crop (haven't uploaded that layout yet, as I was in a rush to complete it. I want to add to it so will upload when I get it finished). The rhinestone circles are one of my designs, obviously not an original shape but I got them made up anyway.

Here I have used the same pink flower but in 3 different ways. The one on the left has our glass round beads in the centre. They come on a strand which you can obviously use like that, but I have only so far used them separately.
Middle one has been folded in half, pattern paper circle with our love charm and the one on the right I wiped white paint over it then put kindyglitz to finish it off.

I love our pink striped ribbon which obviously is tied in to a bow, green ric rac ribbon, flowers from our 200 bulk flower pack, mushroom charms and our silver rhinestone strip.

I have used the same pink flower again on top of our green flower then added our heart, moon & stars charm. Put a little glitter flower sticker inside it.

And for the tree I used our owl charms, cardstock punch hearts (instead of leaves) and some of our flowers, again from the 200 bulk pack.

On the edges of the pink cardstock, I just ran my stanley knife against it to give the rip effect. Oh and the cute pink acrylic mushroom under the tree is from buzz and bloom. The stamp on the acetate is a newbie from our stamp section. I really like this layout even if the photography of it is crocked but then again so am I so its a perfect match!

Now for the next 2 layouts these are for the April calendar challenge over at Purplescraps.

Coredinations cardstock used with Print Block PP. Chipboard title is from buzz and bloom which I inked.

PP is Rusty Pickle & Cosmo Cricket with coredinations cardstock as the background and I inked & painted buzz and bloom chipboard arrows. And you know where you can find the rest of the products BUT if you are a virgin to my blog pop over to ;)

You are going love the beginning of this story, and you won't need to reread it cause you read it right the first time. The bastards who broke into our house were so bloody noisy that I thought they were my ex-husband coming home from shift work - yeah you read right - he was staying with me, my partner and the kids. Since the self centred jerk doesn't make the time to see the angels and he needed somewhere to stay I saw it as a good opportunity for them to spend time with him. Silly me should have realised he hadn't change and slept 90% of the time (I asked him to leave after 3 long months).

So anyway the bastards (sorry no other word for them) went through all our wallets, files ingnored the laptop and all other electronic equipment. Cops reckon they were after money (notes only) and they to our knowledge haven't been caught. As I said in my journalling I am just so grateful none of the kids went downstairs thinking it was their father.

I have a busy weekend ahead, Cybercrop tonight at the Scraplounge, Sarah is in the Anzac Day march tomorrow because she is on the school student council and tomorrow night Mark has his first ever NIGHT league game to play woo hoo go Runaway Bay White under 13's

Since typing this I have had a delivery of more butterflies and ribbons so gotta go & get them uploaded to the website.

Have a safe, fun and creative weekend
