D-Lish Scraps - little explorer and 'you are loved' mini canvas

 Hello there, just squeezing in one more post for this month.  Here are some creations using the monthly kit from D-Lish Scraps - it's fun to see what I can make each month from their Just add Paper Kits!!

This was the mood board and I've used the cushion as my main inspiration for this page.
Here what I've come up with:

 I've gone with a block style design and keeping it nice and simple.  I love the wood veneer embellishments in the kit!!
Here are some close-up's:

 The butterflies are cute and I love the added touch of gold.
 Including some more hand writing on this page too!

I still had quite a few bits from the kit, so I've whipped up this little canvas!!
 I really liked the watercolour card and the wood veneer hoop, so this was my starting point.
 I've done a little mixed media in the background.  Then I've clustered some flowers on the edge of the hoop.
Lastly, I added in that cute little tassel.
This will be a nice little addition for my craft room shelf.

Thanks for popping in ♥

mini album - little friends

Hello there.
I've had a bit of creative fun making a mini album for a series of photo's that I took on a recent camping trip.   I've put together a little album made from one sheet of 12x12 paper - here is a link to a blog post which explains how the mini album is put together ☺

 This is the front cover!  I've used some pattern paper from Cre8tiv which you can find at KMart ☺  Embellishments and stickers are Heidi Swapp and other bits in my stash.

 Here is the album folded out to reveal each page of the album!

 I think it's turned out rather sweet.  I've included lots of little words and expressions, the date and some hand-written journal work.
I know my little man will love looking at this ♥
Thanks for coming by.

friends - Jot Mood board June challenge

Hey there, I'm sharing my page I did for the Jot Mood board challenge - I loved all the white space!!  I was inspired by the lettering, stripes, bike, colours and flowers.

Here's what I've come up with:

 I love this photo I took of my youngest lad with his friend - they have such fun times together and are always happy ♥
Here are some close-up's:
 I'm trying to in-corporate my own hand-writing in my pages - gives it a more personal feel ☺
 I'm off to link this one up and hopefully get a few more pages done this month.
Thanks for coming by ♥

crochet doily rug

 Hello there ☺
Today I'm sharing a crochet project that I've recently completed.  Thanks to a lovely class at a local craft store - Cotton Rose - I've made this giant doily. 

 It's a lovely addition to my bathroom!!  This rug is made with t-shirt yarn and I've used a size 10 crochet hook - so it's come up super chunky!

 I love the finished edging.
 It turned out to be a generous size - my rug measures just under one meter in diameter.
This was such a great project to do.  I enjoyed it so much, I've got another one on the go, with some t-shirt yarn I had in my stash ...................
