Summer is here!

Hi everyone,

Gosh what a beautiful sunny and warm day it was yesterday- summer is here- it was great to be outside all day - the music playing outside- the girls in the pool all day and just chillin! They were very brave on Saturday as the pool was only 15 degrees! I said if they wanted to go in they had to wear a wetsuit and they all were totally crazy and went in - even Simon! I only get in if its hitting the 25 degree mark! Here are some snapshots of the day - the pool did look so clear AND inviting though! Yesterday the girls were in the pool from 10.30am till about 4.30pm with a a couple of breaks! Friends came over as well and went for a dip too so it was 3 happy and slightly sunburnt and very tired girls that went to bed and straight to sleep last night!

As for the scrapbooking front- here is a layout that i had up for Scrappin Patch's product focus last week - showcasing the beautiful Glitz Glitzers! These Vintage Blue papers from Glitz designs were my favourite CHA release- i just adore them! I based my layout on a class taught by the amazingly talented Julie Winks from the Miss Arts Scrapbooking School. This is a fabulous website with super talented teachers that walk you through tonnes of techniques to create beautiful layouts- if you haven't checked them out you should!

Here is the layout that i did- using lots of layering - cardboard- masking- distressing, painting, lots of Tim Holtz dies, loads of layers and textures!



Back soon with an off the page project showing tomorrow at Scrappin Patch

Happy Scrapping
