Mystical scrapbooking quote challenge

It is so hot, that I'm housebound today.
A balmy 38 degrees or just over 100. Phew!!

I've made this layout for featuring my daughter and a quote.
Image result for qoute Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment

My favourite scrapbooking paper EVER is Chapter One by Kaisercraft.
I put a shaped sheet plus a chipboard shape of it in my Counterfeit Kit.
I used it on this layout plus some ribbons, a tag, a flair, a P/L card and a brad.

Use your stuff & Water cooler Wednesday

I've used red on my layout of the Japanese section of Bouchart Gardens in British Columbia.
The white vellum is the white.
I've stitched it in red and you may also notice a red maple leaf.

Use your stuff wants Red and White for Canada.


Have you ever pushed the "NEXT BLOG" button when visiting a blog?
In this case it took me to Watercooler Wednesday challenge.

Now these colours just happened to not only match the greens in my Counterfeit kit, but also a banner I have had sitting on my desk for ages.
I had to restring the word birthday as the twine had broken.
My background paper has been distressed for added interest and 2 staples are also used to hold the folds.
I also added a pink flair button to fill up the space.
Hope you like it!

Butterfly challenge

There is a JADE and Jewels challenge at Butterfly card challenge.
Grab the Badge

I'm using my large die cut butterfly, strips of wood and misted jade paper as the basis of my card.
I've used pearls as my jewels and added 25 as my sentiment.
Perfect for a 25th birthday or anniversary card.

The challenge at City Crafter is to use blue.
This suits my Counterfeit Kit beautifully.
The challenge at Cute card Thursday is use buttons

I've used 2 patterned papers featuring tones of blue plus a striped ribbon and 3 large buttons.
My sentiment is a general "hello" button.
This card can be used for a variety of purposes.

Freshly made sketches #270

Another card for sale. This one is a get well card.
I used alphas left over so the only word I could make was grin.

CKC Challenge #2

The second challenge at Counterfeit kit challenges is to use Zentangles.

I was inspired by the mandalas in the kit "Ubud Dreams" to come up with this idea.

My layout features zentangles that look like coral and seaweed.

The photos ARE straight on the page. I measured them!!!!
They were taken at a weird angle from a glass bottom boat so it is an optical illusion.

I chose to not use a title as this goes into an album with similar photos.

Paper Issues & another freaking scrappy challenge

Image may contain: text

Another layout for paper issues, this time it is Take 5 Tuesday.
I'm using 2. grey papers from my kit
                7.more than 1 photo
                8. Patterned paper
               13. layers
                14.tag or label (love gives a fairy tale)
There is also something silver (6) in the large brad on top left.
Also at they want us to use grey.

There are 3 grey papers on here from the Basic Grey Little Black dress range.
I'm hoping it wasn't only grey. (Thank you Monique Fox and Mary Bennetts for inspiring me)

Erica and I were on our 2009 trip around Europe. This was in Venice. We couldn't believe we were actually there and sat gazing out the window at the gondolas and people catching them.
It was like a fairytale.
