August Kraft it up

Was a colour challenge, with black, yellow, green and of course Kraft.  I used one of my new pics of Kiara, just love it.

Am a tad tired here this morning, Alexa has had a cough/cold all last week, with some interrupted nights, and now Kiara has it which of course means asthma for her.  So the poor thing has had a bad weekend, she is on the pred-mix since Saturday (luckily) and is home from school today.  Hopefully she will be back on track tomorrow.  Only hoping I am not getting it, too...

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Home alone...

ay very well be the best pre-birthday present ever!  Oh, that sounds a little bad, but seriously it is nice to have a few hours to ones self I believe!

Have been scrapping up a storm the last couple of weeks, well, that is all this weather is really good for  isn't it, except making those gorgeous crops grow of course.

So here goes, in no particular order:

Bon's (mostly) boy kit

Bon's mostly girl kit!

Bon's combination of both  kits

I had another go at The Colour Room yesterday, much happier with this week's efforts, perhaps the colour scheme suited me more, with some bright yellow and blues.

And last, but definitely not least as I think it could be my favourite for a while, I did the August 1, 2, 3 challenge which was Colour: Yellow, word: sunshine, and technique: misting:

Notice a bit of a theme going on lately?  I have - white (or light) cardstock, with a coloured border top and bottom.  I'm liking the results, too (obviously, I guess!!)

TCR #18

I had another shot at The Colour Room last night, this time back in His Room.  I sometimes find it difficult to get the colours right...I look at some of the layouts posted up and think - that's not what I thought that colour combo was!  Anyway, pretty happy with the way this has turned out:

Had a happy email during the week with a $10 voucher at Scrapz Biz for a minor win in the June Ticklez comp - all spent already on another Martha Stewart butterfly punch.  Can't wait for it to come with the August Ticklez next week! 

Love start of the month and getting new kits!

Scrap That Ad begins

The competition at Scrapz Biz has started - the first challenge of Scrap That Ad can be found here
The ad is the Qantas ad, with the added criteria of including Australia in the title, a list, and a piece of Australia ephemera (the stamp).

Here is my take on it:
These pics were taken in January of 2007, and have been waiting to be scrapped ever since!
