"O" is for Orange

I have had this layout finished for a couple of days now but the light has been pretty YUCK as far as taking photos. This morning I managed to take a photo of my entry for the "O" is for Orange challenge over at Letters to Scrap By.

I really love these challenges, they get you to use colours that normally you would avoid. I am not a yellow/orange person but these colours are growing on me. One thing I have learned is that you can tone down a colour by grunging it up a little. On this background I applied paint to a piece of exposed corrugated cardboard (torn from a cardboard carton) and stamped the cardstock. The journaling tags are paint sample cards.

So, if you would like to join in the fun, meet some lovely girls and even win a prize, then head on over to Letters to Scrap By.

Cheers, Irene :)

I spy with my little EYE

As you may have noticed, I have changed my Profile Image. Last year I did a few layouts about me and one of them was about my eyes. I took a photo of my eye (anyone watching would have rolled on the floor laughing) and had a play with it in MS Power Point.
So I wouldn't freak any one out, I have decided to give you a close up of this photo. The concept behind it was how I see things through the lens of a camera. Click on the image to enlarge.

Cheers, Irene :)

Letters to Scrap By Challenge

This is another challenge from Letters to Scrap by.......N is for Navy of cause it is another page of one of my grandchildren. I liked the simple look of this layout and decided to hide the journaling block which slides in behind the photo matte. I really enjoyed this challenge so if you want to join in the fun head on over to Letters to Scrap By, you could even win a prize.

Sorry about the image quality. It was taken at the wrong time of day and I couldn't get the colour right. The navy is not that dark.

Cheers, Irene

The perfect little Bag

Hi all, I had to share this with you. I recently won a gorgeous little bag over at Tammy's blog and I am so thrilled with it. I have been looking out for a little bag that would fit my cam-corder and would not be too bulky - this one is perfect and padded as well. Thanks Tammy, I will think of you every time I shoot a video.

Making these little bags is only one of Tammy's talents. Pop on over and take a look at her scrapbook layouts.

Easter Weekend

I hope all my friends have had a wonderful Easter. We had a quiet Easter here at home this year. I felt a little flat especially on Saturday, there was not a grandchild to be seen anywhere. We live about 700klms from our nearest grandchild and this time it seemed like 10,000klms. We (Ross, Rebecca and myself) did however have our very good friends Ted, Kay and daughter Ann-Marie over for dinner on Sunday so I thought I would share a couple of photos with you.

I had a play around with the camera and couldn't decide which photos to include so I posted them all. The desert was Chocolate Mouse which I made from scratch and now that I know what goes into it, I will only be making it once a year. It tasted fantastic and so it should have because all the ingredients were sooooo rich and naughty..... YUM.

A layout to share

I have been waiting for this photo of my daughters to be developed so I could finish this layout.
This is one of the classes that I did recently online. The class was about layering. I have to admit that I did add extra bits and pieces to the page since it was all about layering LOL. It's a little too busy for me and I feel that a photo could get lost in all the embellishments. But anyway, I thought I would share it with you.

I love this photo of my girls. They live far and wide and only get together once a year if they are lucky. This shot was taken on the day my grandsons Lachlan and Benjamin were Baptized.

Cheers for now,
