Lost in the wonder

Hi guys

Because the weather is awful and gloomy and drab.... you get the idea.. I'm having a hard time taking pictures of my pages so this morning I will share a page I have already taken a pic of.. it isn't part of my collection cleanup we will resume that later on if it brightens up ever. I do know you shouldn't start sentences with because, just saying before my english teacher friends come and let me know.

So this is a page I did with Dear Lizzy's Polka Dot Party Collection, this collection and Fifth and Frolic are my all time favourites, because they are delicate and gorgeous and I could make a million pages with them.

You know what I love, doing the journaling around the border like that. So often I end up with this boxy journaling but I love how this just blends into the page. This picture is of my daughter Sophia, collecting treasures and carefully carrying them around in her sunhat, you know instead of wearing it. We live in NZ you need to be wearing that hat seriously. Just letting her be a kid.

Thanks for coming by
Have a fab day

Here is another page in my Collection cleanup of 'Yes Please' by Amy Tangerine.
This one I really liked how it turned out, I cut the circle die cut mat on my lovely Cameo, I seriously love this machine, and then I filled the holes (an in front of the tv job) and then all the rest came together. 

I usually find that if the background has a lot going on, you don't need to do too much else.

I just realised these last two layouts I have little date tabs with no date! Must fix that now.
Thanks for dropping by.

Down the beach

I am doing a little collection clean up with Amy Tangerine's Yes Please Collection. I ended up loving this collection a lot more than I initially thought, it seems to go with everything.

I am down to my last bits now, I still have some diecuts and stickers but am almost out of papers and scraps. I love that feeling. Unfortunately I don't get to the end of a collection often enough but I'm trying.

On this page I used all my retail strips going across the page, it's worth saving those and putting them all together.

Have a wonderful day

Page Share Thursday

A few pages to share...

When I first got these photos printed I was like wow I should have done them black and white, those are some bright jammies. I really thought I would have zero in my stash to work with this colour but as I looked through I did find some bits in my Amy Tangerine's Yes please collection that did just nicely.

Anyone that knows me knows how much I love the Dear Lizzy line, fifth and frolic and Polka Dot Party are my all time favourites. I really enjoy the blues and greens in the Polka Dot Party.

Liv and I on a class trip together. Love this kid.

Have a fabulous day
