Giveaways and Inspirations

Huge Hello Everyone!

What an awesome first week back at TAFE!

each day i have been giving loads of homework and feeling a little
excited over how I'm actually understanding the tax system?!

so so excited about finding out more about MYOB and getting into
big Business Budgeting...on excel! EEE!

OK now i know that's not as exciting as scrappen,
but i am thrilled to be back in the class room and flexing my brain.

I have to admit i have been day dreaming on my lunch breaks
about how i was going to complete my next layouts for this post..

First i wanted to use my lino stamps i had created..
Yep! i carved my own stamps from a sheet of lino and I'm really happy
with my first attempt

I'm now keeping a section in my homework dairy just for doodles and ideas
for my next lot :)

so with these new creations i wanted to apply them to my next layouts
so for my first whirl at Show us Your stuff challenge
this month being "Paper Dolls"


i wanted to do some thing different to the chain and created a Paper doll
circle..which looks a little more like a paper dollies :)

I feel like this is only the first you will see these ...there is just endless possibility
to these paper doilies...

So Big THANK YOU to Show Us Your Stuff for getting me to try something new :)

so here is how i used these Paper dolls on my layout

"Love Holding Hands" 

Using some October Afternoon papers, and some of My own Eye Candy Magic
button, doilies and fimo star pal.

Lockie has always been into holding hand and feeling safe,
this was taken on an outing with Nanny and Grandad.
As you can see in the corner of the photo Lockie is holding his Horse.
this was his first Best friend toy that he took EVERYWHERE! :)

Now i wanted to test drive these other stamps i had created...
so out comes the paint and and some imagination

with this being the month of LOVE i thought i would do a layout focused on
My Partner and Me.

"You Hold My {Heart} Forever"

As you can see i have used some of those delish Charms Creations!
and i have used some more of My own Eye Candy Magic buttons and doilies
Using some of my older stash Fancy Pants papers and a dash of Tearse Collins.
and these awesome chipboard sploshes from Words Or Whatever.

I have to mention that i was inspired by the very talented Chloe with here
layout design from Sweet Anticipation

So now I'm on the prowl for my next creative dream...

Off to work today and tomorrow and a few dashes of Homework sprinkled
in between these shifts but imagining my next layout...

Looking forward too receiving some more goodies from Charms Creations
