Happy E

Posted by swewi on July 27, 2015

Last week I finally had some time to scrap, and I got out my August kit from Clique Kit – AMBROSIA.

I just love the soft colour palette from Pink Paislee in this kit, with some “punchy” embellishments to add 🙂

I simply LOVE the pineapple vellum in this kit, and those flamingos? Adorable! Just like my Elsa 🙂

Almost nine!

Posted by swewi on July 23, 2015

My oldest daughter is almost nine. It blows my mind. If you have children I am sure you can relate! Her year as a seven year old was TOUGH, as an eight year old things have been better. She has learnt a lot about herself, and consequently – so have we. It’s been a good year. She’s excelled at school, in sports and in music/performance.

Looking forward to what she will be like as a nine year old!!

This LO is full of Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Made of Awesome” goodness. AND – the tiny alphas are from the “Hello Lovely” collection. I have said it before, and will say it again – I love how Zoe’s collections are so easy to mix and match!

The cut file I have used for my mask in the background is of course by the talented Ashley – owner of The Cut Shoppe.

I have used embellishments galore on my page – as per usual. Here are a few close ups!

New sketch up!

Posted by swewi on July 18, 2015

I am a few days behind posting this, but it’s been crazy around here! Yesterday I quit my day job! Have been there for 5 years, but I decided to leave. The last few days I have been crazy busy trying to teach someone else how to do my job. Not as easy as it might seem at times. Long story short – I am gone and I am so HAPPY!

So I missed posting the latest reveal for Sketchabilities on Wednesday – but here it is now! Sketch #143 is another inspiring sketch from Karan:


I used the July kit from Clique Kits for my LO, plus a few veneer frames by Amy Tangerine from my stash.
