White with 1 - May challenge

 Hello everyone - hope your week is going well ☺
Today, I'm popping in to share a page that I've created using the challenge at White with 1 - I always love their colour challenges - though gold was a little more challenging ........

 Here's what I've come up with:

 I had this great picture of my mum with her girls!!  From there I pulled out all the bits of gold I could find in my craft room stash, including some gold embossing powder and paint ☺
Here are a few close-up's:

A fun challenge and I love how this page turned out. 

Next week I will have a non-crafty share.  If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I love to share my baking and cooking.  So stay tuned for some creative-ness from my kitchen
Til then - creating with love and happiness ♥

once upon a sketch challenge - May

 Hello - hope you are enjoying the weekend!!  Yesterday afternoon, I spent some 'crafty time' at my craft desk and created a page for the Once Upon a Sketch challenge for May.  I always enjoy their sketches and the theme was: ANYTHING ☺
So I picked out a picture from my pile and created .............

Here is the sketch - I've popped the photo on the other side of the page!

 The picture is of my beautiful niece - (photo taken by Aimee Claire Photography)
I love the feeling of freedom in this picture and really wanted to create something pretty.  So I picked out some Prima goodies and just had some fun ...........

 Thanks for a fun sketch challenge Once Upon a Sketch ☺

Creating with love and happiness ♥

a few changes ...........

Hello to you all ☺
Its been a few weeks since being on my blog ....... I've had a little 'time away' ☺
I'm excited to share that I'll be making a few changes around here .........

You will notice my new blog header with a new name:
  Creative-ness . around my home

This reflects me and my life. It will be more of a 'lifestyle' blog. I'd like to share more about the things I love and do:  still Scrapbooking but also Project Life, crochet, my passion for healthy living, including my baking and cooking, inspirational verses and things around my home .........
I love taking pictures of my creative-ness! For me, taking pictures is a way of recording moments in my life.  Having this blog, allows me to share my passions and hobbies, and record what is important to me.

I'd love for you to follow me - I'll be working on new things I'd like to share over the coming weeks.  See you soon ♥
