Some Paper Inklings layouts to share!

So I have started to play with my pack!  So exciting - here are the first three:

The Look:

This recent photo of my youngest daughter Alexa was crying out for a funky and grungy layout, and the colours and themes of the new “Concrete Jungle” range were perfect for just that! The range is far more versatile than just scooter and skateboard layouts, as is shown on this layout. Included on this page are papers and rub ons from the Concrete Jungle range, and Hazard Symbol chipboard from the Awesome Boy range.

Scooter Girl:

My aim for this layout was to incorporate the Concrete Jungle into my usual style – which often includes white cardstock background. The use of a basic white background really sets off the colours in the Extreme Scooter paper used for the patterned paper border, making a great feature of the arrows. Some rub on arrows from the Scooter A5 rub on pack were cut and placed in a couple of different places on the layout to draw attention to the title and link the arrows in. The fantastic Scooter Boy chipboard title can be used for more than just boy layouts! Here I have painted the title red, and then I just love the technique of painting black lines on there simply with the edge of a plastic ruler – so easy and so eye catching.

Aussie Road Trip 1994:

What better way to use up those awkward, small, {old} photos from years ago! These pics were not really good enough to feature on a layout of their own, but now I have a fantastic record of our road trip from many years ago! I have mapped out our route on the Australian Map Die-Cut paper from the “Australia” range, and used the Aussie from the Aussie Pride A5 rub on pack. How appropriate to have a kangaroo sign for this layout – from the Road Sign chipboard!

Exciting mail from Paper Inklings

So super excited - got a pizza box from Paper Inklings today - just check out this pack full of goodies, just for me!!

Sorry the pic is not so good, but I just couldn't wait to get into it!  Gotta get me some new pics printed now - particularly from Australia Day, and also my girls scootering - just gotta adapt the Scooter Boy to be Scooter Girls and we are all good!  Love the rub ons, some great ones there for my girls.  Can't wait!

I am on a DT!!!!!!!!

Very excited (and a little bit nervous as well) to announce that I made the Paper Inklings design team!  Can't wait to get my first delivery of product and get to work......pretty good work, if you can get it I say!!

Hopefully I will get my box of goodies soon and share some piccies.

Today is the first day back to school, Alexa's first day.  Poor little thing, she was exhausted by the time school started (having been awake during the night, and then from 4:30am onwards).  So I left the poor munchkin sobbing in Mrs Matheson & Kiara's care....hope she is okay now.

She looked so gorgeous and grown up in her dress, will put some pics up when I have downloaded from the camera.  Mummy felt very bad leaving her there - should have done what she said "You can just drop us off and go Mum" rather than staying - I know they are better when I am not there.

Might just go and ring to check how she is getting on.....

Okay, so this challenge at Scrapz Biz Uni really had me stumped at first...amazing how such "challenges" can turn into favourite layouts!
And you can also see it here - on the featured layout!  Woo hoo!

Also waiting on some exciting news from here but don't think I had better get too excited.  Never know - gotta be in it to win it, hey?

AND got some exciting news to announce in a little while as well....

So there is some exciting scrappy things going on...missed out on Stuck and Scrap the Girls and 1,2,3 challenge - but looking on the bright side, this means I can still win the prizes LOL!
