 Hi all. Hows your Easter break been? Mine has been fantastic. Lots of time with family, waaay too much chocolate and just enough time to scrap.
So I thought that today I would share with you some LOs for THE POLKADOT PLACE using the latest kit Bliss Terrace.

 This kit is super fun and funky and the colours are devine. Ive had so much fun with this kit and I think its my favourite so far. Bridge has just recently reduced the price of her kits and they are awesome value $45.00 including postage.

Mmmmmmm Sass Foldies. Love em! and Crate my all time fav. This kit is super gorgeous and Im having so much fun working with it.
Ill have one more page to share from this kit soon.
Thanks for stopping by.

Blessed twice over!

 Well I am and these 2 cheeky faces prove it.
Ive been a bit distracted lately with all the Lil Red Rocket goings on and I was really looking forward to getting back to my beautiful kit from HANDMADE BY SUZANNE.
I luuurve this range Portrait by Crate, just gorge!!
 Layered Chipboard stickers! My fav embellishment at the moment other than LRR stuff of course lol.
Lastly gorgeous Prima flowers all available from HANDMADE BY SUZANNE.
so this was my take on the sketch I designed for this month.

I decided to trade the star for a butterfly because I thought it fit better with my papers.
Again its a great prize this month $30.00 voucher and free postage so why not pop on over HERE and have a go.
Back soon with more from my kit this month. TFL.

My boy.

One more LO for MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK using this months beautiful main kit.
Hey I know Ive scrapped this photo about a billion times and you may wonder why it is that I do that well apart from the fact that at times the boys can be a little un co operative when it comes to photo shoots and the fact that my printer is low on ink, its also because Im putting together albums for other family members too along with special individual ones for the boys to keep. So there you go, I never feel guilty for scrapping the same photos over and over again.

Speaking of photos, check out this one I snapped of Master Tys on the weekend I just love the look on
his face. TOO CUTE!! TFL.

Little Treasures.

Ive been having fun playing with this months beautiful kit from MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK featuring the gorgeous Gabrielle line by Bo Bunny.
There are so many amazing things in this kit and as you can see the papers lend them selves quite easily to both boy and girl LOs.
I have another LO which I will share after the 15th and also a sketch which I designed for this months sketch challenge at MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK.
I was lucky enough to be asked to join the My creative scrapbook Design team as a sketch designer. I design sketches exclusive to My creative Scrapbook to be included in their beautiful kits and now I will also be setting a sketch challenge in the forum each month. I hope will join in.
Some times Im feel so lucky that I just have to pinch myself!!!
If you havent already checked out MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK you can have a look HERE. My Creative Scrapbook kits are amazing, they ship internationally and their Design Team is so inspirational and amazingly talented. Im so grateful and excited for this new opportunity. TFL.

My Greatest Joy.

Oh my goodness I am so lucky! Suzanne really spoils me when she sends my DT kits.
I cant tell you how badly I wanted to get my hands on this beautiful Portrait range by Crate Paper and Im not disappointed it is DIVINE!!!
Included in my kit was also the beautiful Belina Flowers by Prima (the big white one) layered chipboard stickers and alphas by Crate and The MOST AEWSOME Tim Holts distress stains!!!
OH MY, for a compulsive edge inker like me, Im in HEAVEN!!!
I usually takes me a minimum of 3 hours to put a page together and I think that is mainly due to the fact that I am compelled to ink every piece of paper to with in an inch of its life and lets face it, it takes FOREVER!!!
Well not any more. I used my distress stains to ink my edges here and its way quicker.
No more re inking your sponge again and again because the Distress stains have a sponge applicator on the end of the bottle. HEAVEN. YAY Im hooked!
Do your self a favour and check out HANDMADE BY SUZANNE if your a member of Edge Inkers Anonymous like me. You need these stains. You will LOVE IT!!!

OK close ups. Couldn't help but break out my Prima stash to go with these GORGEOUS papers.

As always the layered chipboard shapes by Crate are beautiful and probably my fav embellishment at the moment.
OK Thats all for now. If your looking for the latest and greatest range and the cheapest postage pop on over to HANDMADE BY SUZANNE and spend up and maybe join the gallery if youd like to have a go at this months sketch.
