Before I leave for Tassie I have these to share...

Finally it is nearly here, tomorrow we are off to Tasmania (returning late 29th Sept) and since I opened my big mouth in previous post about a Christmas layout, I suppose I had better show you it.

It's not quite what I intended this layout to be but its done! Christmas may only come once a year but I just don’t like doing them and I have at least 5 years of Christmas layouts to scrap and don’t start me on all the birthdays needing to be done!

I have used Teresa Collins P/P, doily sprayed with starfish glimmer mist, black coredinations cardstock circle.

Under the scrapware chipboard Christmas tree are our present charms. The tree I inked in red, then added a thick layer of dimensional magic over the top then I bent it after it had dried to crack it. The black edging is kindy glitz. The little doily behind has been sprayed with granite glimmer mist

I use Black Kindy Glitz on the Thickers for the title and a small piece of our new black seed glass beads. I was intending to use more but I felt the layout was busy enough without adding more to it (had already completed 90% of it before the beads arrive.)

One reindeer charm on the right hand corner and finally up the top left hand corner is our flowers, black flourish and scrapware holly photo anchors with a red glitter brad holding it together.

Not sure if I will have access to my2angels emails while away but if anyone need to contact me I will be able to get emails from my other address ... samscrapbooking@yahoo.com.au

This month is Blue September. It's about creating awareness and raising funds for cancer in men. One in two Australian males are diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85! At least one in three cancer cases are preventable, and the number of cancer deaths could be significantly reduced by more men choosing a cancer-smart lifestyle. These men could be your fathers, your husbands, your boyfriends or your sons.

Jo from over at scraps of sanity will donate $10 to Blue September for every blue page emailed to her by September 30.
It doesn't have to be all blue it just has to be the dominant colour.
So come on everyone... help here out with this great cause and help the men in our lives.
Email your entries in to joannepowell1972@gmail.com

Here is my layout I sent her. Its my DD last month competing in Districts – and I finally got to use the cheerleader charm, as mentioned in my tips and example of using charms tutorial

The terricotta flowers are the Buzz and Bloom Denim Fabric flowers (Blush) and I got to use our new bird charms.

And finally but most importantly this gorgeous boy stole my heart 13 years ago today


Love you to infinite and back

PS and yes I will alway keep reminding you that it took 36 hours (I add hours here and there when reminding him)plus hemorrhaging (that was me!) and with the use of forceps until finally all 10.5 pounds of you came into this world and changed my life forever (in the best possible way).
