More Than Words - Beautiful

 Hello Everyone!!

have this beautiful challenge this month.

 Here is what I made.


I have used some beautiful white rub-ons from my stash to create a frame around this gorgeous photo.
Photo taken by Jade Norwood Photography.
 I wanted to add more  but decided that less is more.
I have used a beautiful big 2Crafty Chipboard Butterfly and simply inked it with black distress ink and added some rub-ons randomly over it.
The Title is also a rub-on..
Slowly get through my rub-on  stash.

A couple of close ups of the butterfly and rubon details.

I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and leave such beautiful comments.
Thank You!!

Scrap The Girls - March Challenge - #selfie

Now everyone would have a photo or photos to scrap for this challenge and we must remember it is  important that we get in the photos and scrap photos of ourselves.

Here is the March Challenge.

Here is my take.


 A simple layout, using up some more bits and pieces from my stash.
I rarely scrap photos of myself, so thought this was the perfect challenge for me.
Here I am  with my beautiful daughter.
We were waiting for the Adelaide Credit Union Christmas pageant to start....well worth the very early start and wait.  To help time pass we enjoyed homemade Yoyo biscuits made by Sarah which were delicious and a beautiful cuppa. Thank you gorgeous girl for always thinking of me. xx

I had this 2Crafty chipboard wordlet in my stash.
2Crafty make it so easy to add titles to your pages...pop over here to check them all out.
And the little chippie camera is perfect.

Thank you for stopping by.
Your kind words are much appreciated.
Remember if you are new to my blog I would love for you to become a follower.....follow the prompts on the top right hand side.

Kraft+ - So much fun!!


Kraft+  have this gorgeous Kraft Board for inspiration this month
"a denim revolution"
use Denim on your layout.

Here is what I made

 {So much Fun!!}
The  heart in the bottom left hand corner of the Kraft Board  inspired me  to create my own heart somewhere on my layout.. I cut up an old pair of jeans and covered a chipboard heart, added flowers, buttons,  thread, stitching and journaling.
I found this cute little pair of overall which matched the overalls  Sarah is wearing in the photo.
I sewed on some buttons and stitched the heart patch on with large orange X stitches. 
I have used a script stamp to stamp around the edges but it doesn't show up very well in this photo.
Not the best photo of my gorgeous little one ...but its about the memory and story.
I have journaled on the back about her  playgroup day at the Ada Ryan Gardens in Whyalla.

 Heart details - flower, thread, button,  X stitches and dot point journaling.

 The Overalls with the added details.

 Another of the overalls

I have quite a stash of clothes tag.
Found this one which went well with this challenge
Billabong Denim.
I hope I have inspired you to  play along.

Thank you so much for stopping by. and for your lovely comments.

D-Lish Scraps - March Challenge - Gymnastics Awards

The March Challenge at D-Lish Scraps is this  pretty pink Inspiration Board  and  a Sketch.

Here is my take.

{Gymnastics Awards}

 Washi tape is a go to  for me at the moment....(I have lots in my stash).... I really like how easy it is to use and how effective it is to create background layers to a layout. I have added some texture with  2Crafty Chipboard pieces, and add some flowers and butterflies as seem in the  Inspiration Board.
So proud of this gorgeous little girl. She loved her gymnastics and always gave it her best shot. A quiet achiever. All her dedication and hard work paid off.

A close up of the background layers.....washi tapes, torn paper strips, rub-ons
flowers, chipboard and butterflies.

I hope I have inspired you to play along....great little prizes are up for grabs.

Thanks for stopping by.
Your kind comments are much appreciated.

White With 1 - remember Miss Sub Junior Show Girl


Blue is a favourite colour of when I saw the  White with 1 challenge,  I had to play along.  They have also included a Page Maps sketch to inspire us.

"Blue Jeans"

The sketch

I rotated it

and this is my layout

{remember Miss Sub Junior Show Girl}

I have long admired Mixed Media artists. Their work is outstanding. I have watched numerous video tutorials and they make it look so easy. I have tried and tried but just cannot  seem to get it to look any good. I  have got a lot of really old products in my stash and as I'm stash busting thought I would give it another try and use  up  some of my  texture paste, and mists. The first page ended up in the bin. This is my 2nd attempt....  its okay plenty of room for improvement.. Gesso background, Crafters Workshop Stencil, Texture paste, TA Glimmermist, Versa Colour inks and stamps.
I have journaled on the back about my beautiful  little girl winning Miss Sub Junior Show Girl, even with a black eye.

A closer look at  the flower cluster and  gorgeous 2Crafty chippie pieces.

  Showing some of the background details and layers.

 The title is a 2Crafty chippie word - remember

Thank you so much for stopping by again this month.
I appreciated your  beautiful comments.

More Than Words -together

Hello my scrappy friends.

Word Inspiration - TOGETHER
Creative Challenge - AMPERSAND

What does the word TOGETHER inspire you to create?
You can choose to add the word somewhere on your project or simply
be inspired to create from it.

February is known to be the month of love throughout the world
and we want to celebrate this special month by focusing on the symbol
that brings us together, that connects us to one another... the logo of unity.
This symbol is called an AMPERSAND "&" and we would love to see
how you will use it on your project.
 Here is my take.


The month of love...I couldn't go past this gorgeous engagement photo
  taken by Jade Norwood Photography for this challenge.

 "together" is a 2Crafty Chipboard word...the set of words  are gorgeous ...I love them.
I layered this  along with some chippie arrows over  old Rub-ons from my stash.

  A close up of the different Rub-Ons and 2Crafty Chipboard hearts.

I used several different Rub-ons to create the layers along with torn paper strips and chippie pieces.

My  Ampersand.
You & Me

 Looks greyish but is made on a pieces of white cardstock.
You can see by looking at all my layouts for this month,
 I have a go at everything...don't really have a particular all depends on the photo I use.

More stash busting... I'm slowly using up bits and pieces  :)

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Your beautiful comments are truly appreciated.

Janice xx
edited this post to add this.
Thrilled, happy and over the moon to be amongst the winners at "More Than Words".
Thank you to "More Than Words" for choosing my layout.

Scrapbooking Top 50 - love

Their challenge  for February is this super easy sketch. Use it how you like, flip it, flop it, turn it around, just make sure they can see the bones of the sketch in your page!

This is my first time playing along with a challenge here.
This is my take.


 Wish I could photograph layouts on white cardstock better. This is made on a white piece of cardstock not grey.  If you have any hints or tips  on how you do it, I would love to hear them please.

 A closer look at the flower cluster - stash busting again.

 love this big 2Crafty chipboard word.

 I love reading your comments,
so Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave a message for me.

Enjoy your weekend.

Dusty Attic - you make me so happy


Look at this gorgeous Mood Pallet and Sketch that Dusty Attic have for their February Challenge

You can use the sketch and or the Mood Pallet!

Here is my interpretation.
I have used both the Mood Pallet and sketch.

{you make me so happy}

You were a bit spoilt  and probably got way too many Easter Eggs, but I  wanted to carry  on the tradition that my Mum did for us as kids.  We found Easter Eggs in our straw nests  over 3 days. Both sets of grandparents gave Mum eggs for us and she  hid then and put them in the nests  on 2 days  and the Easter Bunny filled our nests on Easter Sunday. We were spoilt as kids too!
Easter Time 2000.
Pa bagged the straw from the farm and dropped it off just before Easter for you to  make your big  nests. Mums flower garden seemed to be the best spot. It was always such an exciting time....awake early, you would grab  Matthew and head outside for a look... and of course The Easter Bunny  had spilt a few little ones along the way.  Watching you bursting with excitement, and  listening to your little squeals of delight  was wonderful. You were always thankful for what you got and shared the little ones out so you both had the same. Quite often it was chocolate for breakfast....a great way to start the day!

A close up showing some of the gorgeous Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces.
 I have used Polaroid frames.....I chose to add patterned paper to 3 of then instead of photos......that's the beauty of  creating with a sketch you can interpret it to suit your style and I layered pieces of  this gorgeous Wildflower #3 on top

Showing more of the layers and details. Here I have used a pieces of the gorgeous Vine Border. If you have a large  chippie piece don't be afraid to snip it up  to make it smaller and add it to clusters etc.. Chipboard is so versatile.

The Challenge has a amazing prize of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher to the  Dusty Attic Website  for the winner. To enter all you need to do, is use the Mood Board OR the sketch OR both for Inspiration,  you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation. Once completed simply add your link to the right side of the bar of the Dusty Attic Blog...

 I have been very lucky to have had time to get into my scrap room and have a play. 
Mr Mojo is still here at the moment and I hope it stays around for awhile.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy creating!
