Its also a first Whole Page Publication for me!
 And this one is my first ever double Page Publication. Yay!!

Looking for a new Technique?....Two below.....

These are my DT pages for MY LITTLE BIT OF WHIMSY
My first share is of my little girl and I found the perfect MY LITTLE BIT OF WHIMSY flower button to compliment the look of the page. Have you spotted it?
 For the scalloped circle effect: Place a large dinner plate upside down on the edge of Cardstock. Use a sea sponge/Kitchen Sponge and blot some paint around the edge of the Plate. When dry, loosley doodle the inside edge for definition.
 There it is....well done, you found it!

ECHO PARK VICTORIA GARDENS Papers, Die Cuts and Stickers.
PURPLE PUMPKIN Buttons, Champagne Flowers & Butchers Twine

This one is of one of my boys and his own special mohawk fringe thing he does for school every morning now. I have layered lots of photos and although hard to see, lots of machine stitch..
The MLBOW Maroon bird pin goes so well! Can you see it?
 Close up....there he is....
 For the Tie Dye Banner effect: Cut shapes out of a patterned Paper Towel. Careful turn the edges through a drop of Watery Ink or Colour wash. The Paper towel soaks up and creates a dark to light effect. I sprayed a quick layer of Acid free to ensure no damage to my page over time.

Spot the Frog!

GET PICKY  November Inspiration Challenge #14
Tell a story and use more than one Photo.
This is my story:
Our little Keanu is 18mths.
From 12mths he would pull "Hulk Face" on command.
He clenches and shakes his little fists, turns bright red and grimaces. 5 seconds later he has not only himself in fits of laughter but his whole family and all of our friends.
These photos capture him in action....
I Have used 2 PURPLE PUMPKIN buttons and lots of Chipboards from WOW.
Did you spot the little FROG Pin?
Is'nt Kermit just the cutest?
It is from MLBOW (Blog) and I was very excited when they asked me to join thier Design Team. It meant lots of gorgeous new pins for me to play with. Im in Pin heaven right now with my newly aquired collection.

Texture Paste and Butterflies

I love little baby girls and I love pink!
A friend had a Beautiful baby girl and I had some newly aquired Texture Paste.
What to do? This little piece is the result. I used Texture Paste to create a base and worked my way up with 3D Butterflies. That was lots of Punching, Inking and Gluing LOL.
Its not Awesome...but its a start and it's inspired lots of new project idea's.
 This is the biggest problem with getting decent Photo's to scrap. My three kids never all look at the same time, even with Grandma & Grandpa's help. It just made me laugh at the reality of it. I have one Poser, who poses way to much and two who just dont want to know about the camera and will do everything BUT smile for mummy.
Enjoy the rest of your day and if its anything like here (Thundering, cold and wet), well I hope you've got a good movie and hot choclate to enjoy
