Xmas Mini

I love Xmas - this year though was a real cracker so I made a mini with my fave xmas live this year - Crate Papers Snow Day Collection :)
I used a few little bibs and bobs from Sweet vintage, basic Grey, American Crafts - old and new lots of fun ...
Love adding texture to my Mini's not scared to make it a bit lumpy,bumpy and uneven -lol topped off with seriously cute pictures of my boys...

I used a chipboard shaped heart from another album (scrapware I believe) and used some spare heavy cardboard and dotted swiss cardstock - lots of red....

I was so proud of the boys having their Santa pic without me for the first time :D but not too shy to admit it also meant a little tear that my boys are growing up...far too quickly for my liking lol
Hope you like the end result as much as I did - don't do many mini's but always seemed chuffed with the finished product.
thanks for popping by, Mel xxx

Sleepy sunday....

...not likely - even though the boys are at their Dads my body clock won't give in and let me sleep - so I got up and did this :D
I used a sketch from Red Earth Scrapping - love that Jay can now swing by himself and also loving the trims I used on this one they go beautifully with the Sass Indie girl range and the sweet vintage Doily is super gorgeous :)
Hope your having a wonderful Sunday I am off to the movies shortly then back for a nanna nap before the boys come home :)

cute cards

These cards are actually made using some Martha Stewart wedding place cards - they are just over half the size of a normal envelope and come with a cute envelope to boot - I made about 30 odd using scraps,journalling tags, prima chipboard accents and some of my stash - nothing new on these babies but still cute all the same :)

Zoo Sketch

I did this one for Sketchy Thursdays latest challenge - I used the Sass mix'n'match range,some sweet vintage,scenic route - hope you like it :)

you sweet little thing

I did this LO for the first part of a DT call at Red Earth Scrapping - you had to take inspiration from the sites header. I have used the versa mark tear drop inks to make a inked boarder under the photo and also the versa mark square pads to ink down the side on the page.

I love this pic of Jay and how he is replicating the little Meerkat at the back of the photo - he was so excited seeing all the animals at the zoo and loved these little guys :) he kept going they're so koot(cute) Mumma...
thx for dropping by,Melxx

Just a quick share - the boys had fun last year on Halloween first we had a Halloween party and then went over to Mums...
...Mum has lots of trick or treaters every year and the boys loved handing out the lollies more than the costumes lol
