Wonderful ScrapBoutique

is having a 3rd birthday Cybercrop at the is running til Friday, with marvellous challenges...

 This is for Sharon's Colour Challenge - using purples/blues & whites.  And with Kaisercrafts magnificent Utopia range - one of my favourites, I had a wonderful time scrapping a photo of moi on my honeymoon in June 1976 at Bermagui....oh the memories!!!

Amanda set a wonderful inspirational challenge using a beautiful photo titled 'Spring' - and I really enjoyed thinking of, & working on the above LO.  A beautiful Mothers Day at Brooms Head, with 2 young lovely children & my mum too - we were picnicing...and yes, it was bliss.

This was a birthday special LO class with the lovely Amanda again, & I really had fun with the colours of my son & grandson 'flying high' at Dreamworld.

The talented Em, had me so nervous to cut a photo into 3, but once I had finally mustered up the courage & got that trimmer going, then adhered on my was quite a great thing to do.  This photo is taken at the most marvellous spot in the world...I do have an affinity with it...I know I do! 
I have been making my own organza flowers & having a ball teaching myself...they are coming along.

Last but certainly not least, is a round shaped card challenge, set by Chels.  So I jumped in & created a card for my hubby's birthday in November!!  Always good to be prepared!! Had fun with Glimmer Mist & Tim Holtz templates & lovely Kraft CS.

Well thanks for looking,

Love Deb xxxoxox

I know this much is true......

This was the topic during the last The Little Scrapbook Shop cybercrop....& I have to say I loved it!!

 I was so lucky to have this great photo of my Tashi...Linda had added a few photographic skills & it just is a wonderful photo...and I won with this one....

Little Jadie girl as a bebe...she was as cute as a button....note my handmade flowers!!

This LO was one word to describe me......Pete reckoned this was the right one...

Had a ball working on this one of me.....Tracy taught us how to make ribbon flowers & made the big green lace one, & used some other smaller ones I had been given in a Kris Kringle RAK...thankyou Gill!!

Another handmade flower here - this time using that lovely tissue paper. And more photos from our Great Ocean Road trip.

And a card using my fave colours, & some more little bits from my Kris Kringle RAK.

This was a wonderful CC, & I thank all the DT's for such inspiring work.

Love Deb xxxx

Scrapville June LO & card

Lovely designs, courtesy of the talented Miss Melinda......thank you....I enjoyed the 'precise' cutting & measuring for these...I used Kaisercraft & Websters papers on black bazzill.

Used Sassafras Lass paper for this one...then modified it with a 1 before the 9 & gave it to my 19 year old grand daughter for her birthday.

See you Deb xxx

This is it - end of the holiday...

After the Otway Fly we drove back staying at Geelong again & on the way headed into Barwon how I would love to bring the camper here!!!!

Then up before dawn & drove into Melbourne early on Saturday morning, to go to the Titanic Artifact Exhibition at Melbourne Museum....such a highlight on our little holiday & so moving, especially for me....I have always had a feeling for the Titanic.

After our wonderful day in the museum we headed out into the cold outside & caught the free tram, & toured about the city....fabulous!

So the early plane home & our lovely holiday was over....but what lovely memories we have!!

Christmas in July Cards

Great idea dear Sandie....

Here is cards 1 to 8 -

Top left - acetate card...they are hard to take a piccie of...used Cosmo Cricke pp

Top middle - reindeer card - used KC pp & a lovely stamp & some little 3D stickers

Top right - Card 1 - used Kraft card, KC pp & ink

Bottom left - used a 'pre-made' card base from Spotlight, plus Kraft card, my 'Be Merry' KC stamp & a handmade lace flower.

Botton next - inking....but it is not very visible in the piccie.  Used KC paper...they make such a nice lot of ranges.

Next - my Holly card - used KC paper & KC wooden holly (that I picked up in the Geelong shop...yummy spot) plus some ribbon.

Next one - 2 Christmas trees -  more inking ...did another one - also used more KC pp & Kraft card.

Then the final one on the bottom right - torn KC pp with Kraft card.

Enjoyed making these & will hopefully get time this week to make another batch...

Thanks Sandie for the inspiration!!!

Love Deb xoxoxo

More Great Ocean Road piccies....

Think that this will help the toursist trade???   Gorgeous places to visit along the road from Geelong to Port Fairy..

Just adored the rugged coastline, the pounding ways, the broiling invigorating.  The Shipwreck apt, so wonderful!

It was so early when this piccie was taken, about 8am & the sun rises so much later in Victoria than NSW & it was SO very cold, but breathtaking.  Pete is getting ready to take another photo.

To be continued...................
