My Garden

Hi, thought I would share some pics I took yesterday of the garden, love this time of year when everything starts to open up and grow, love this tree fern how it survives our winter amazes me and lots of my Clematis have started to flower already, must be due to the fact that over the last ten days we have had a mini heat wave!

CCG -189

Hi everyone hope you have all had a fantastic Easter, spent most of mine enjoying the sunshine in the garden, felt like I was on holiday, sheer bliss. Check out colorcombosgalore for details of the 189 challenge, this was taken back in 2004, we used to have all the family over and hide chocolate eggs all over the garden for the children to find, for the challenge used Bo-Bunnys back to basics range for the background paper, also used some free papers from the Somerset Memories magazine, which by the way if you haven't come across is fab. Some flowers from my stash and the cute little bunny with the carrots I cut out on my Sizzix Eclipse holiday cartridge, used stickles to glitter and embelish for added shine and sparkle, thanks for checking out my blog, feel free to leave a comment or ask a question.

CCG - 188 Camp Mickey & Minnie

LOL I couldn't help myself spent the whole of Friday in my little scrap room being creative. This was taken at WDW in 2008, it's the Animal Kingdom park which we all adore, this was taken at Camp Mickey/Minnie and no it was not night time believe it or not it was during the day but it rained for nearly the whole 18 days we spent there as hurricane after hurricane came over the Orlando area, how unlucky where we! Have used my Tim Holtz die to cut out some flowers, again the inspiration was metal I used the brown metal flower and some metal brads. Thanks for looking!

Get Picky March - Inspiration

Thought I would try this one out, Loving the Juicy Couture inspiration pic, lucky enough I had some old label tags that matched the challenge and the picture of the girls at our pool party last summer, they just reminded me of how they are so design orientatied, some of them even had Juicy bikinis. Mainly used the Glitz collection - Love nest and some bits and pieces from my stash, thanks for looking feel free to leave a comment or ask a question, remember to leave a comment on the blog post a few weeks ago for a chance to win some goddies! Happy Scrapping.
