Some RES creating
In March I was sent some of the Little Yellow Bicycle "Twig" range of papers & embellishments to use. Honestly at first I kind of freaked. I've definitely always been one of those "blue & green should not be seen, unless there's a colour in between" people, not to mention having 2 girls my normal colour choices lean much more towards pinks & reds than a large amount of green.
So I shuffled the papers about for a few days & it was when I found the "perfect photo" that everything just came together & I have to say I really love the result. I loved in particular having lots of leaves & birdies to cut up & use. Thanks so much Helen, for yet another wonderful CT kit & for getting me out of my creative comfort zone.
Here's a couple of close ups too.
Then I went on to make a couple of little gift cards & decorate a brown paper bag for Easter as well.
You can find papers & embellishments from the LYB "Twig" range in the Red Earth Scrapping Shop where coincidently there's going to be a 20% off Easter sale from Friday 22nd - Tuesday 26th April!
School holidays are flying by, Lily & Mackenzie are having a great time. Today they went for a big day out at Niagara Park, participating in an Indoor Multi-Sports day and had a blast. Lily loved the wheel chair basketball most & Mackenzie, well her favourite activity is which ever one she's telling us about at the time...lol!
I'm headed out to a card class tomorrow night in Penrith with Jenny. The kids & I will get to enjoy a couple of nice autumn days in the Mountains. Hopefully I'll get lots of scrapping done & am really looking forward to catching up with a few other Mountains friends that I haven't seen for a few years since we've been up here. Really looking forward to creating in the company of others too, it's really been a while!
Looking forward to the 5 day weekend too, lots of fun things planned & lots of family time for the 4 of us....life is good!
I'll finish of with a bit of a riddle for you "What do you get if you cross Red Earth Scrapping with a Road Map?"..........check out the forum to find out.
Wishing you all a fabulous Easter in advance (just in case I don't get a chance for another post) & thanks for stopping by. Take care xx
