Creating

Three layouts in two days... plus one painting and two atc's (which I can't show you). I've a-been creating, and I needed it, that's for sure.

I actually pulled the ribbon off the painting I posted yesterday, at my husband Ben's suggestion, and I have to agree it looks more open for it. Will have to take a new photo to show all as it looks quite different, and as Kell said, it is brighter in real life anyway.

This top layout is from today, and is for the Scrapbook Divas cybercrop that is on this weekend. Black and white theme. I loved making this, the Creative Imaginations transparency AND striped scalloped paper are just so cool. The rubons softened it nicely, with Cherry Arte chipboard adding to the flow. I love the little that remains of my Rouge de Garance rubons, and used the phrase 'ma princesse' at the bottom of the layout, under the funky trim that came with the Poppy Ink add on kit I bought. Lana (a.k.a. Alannah) is my beautiful niece who always looks so grown up, but is actually just 3, only two months older than Sienna.

OK this next one I also love and I had it in my mind ever since I heard this song "The Way I Am" by Ingrid Michaelson. Love that girl. Bought her CD from cdbaby a month or so back. Link in my sidebar if you wanna hear her. A pic of my hubby Ben which I took when we were at his dad's place a couple of months ago. The lyric is special because of how much meaning is behind such simple words. I love the little things he does in everyday life that make me feel loved, and I feel grateful that I can be myself with him. I think with my personality, sporadic depression and 'arty-ness' (read: chaos) means that would not always be easy. I managed to work this one in to a 123 Cybercrop challenge too, what a bonus. Ooh and the stamp, mustn't forget the stamp - designed by the gorgeous Zina Wright, and available with the March boxx of scraps from Scrapboxx. I must admit I don't normally get them, don't get any kits at this point actually, but just had to have Zina's stamp!

This last layout was the first I did yesterday morning, and is also for the 123 cybercrop. Cute photos of Ash, Ben, Ben's brother Matt and their dad Mike. Also taken back in Jan when were at 'Nan and Pop's' for the weekend. Love the Bam Pop papers? They are so cute, and currently only available in Oz from that funky online shop Kiti Q. They are getting in some of the COOLEST brand new stamps from Bam Pop, I think as early as next week. Kell will also bring them to the Kiti Q stand at Crop for Kids, as well as the Limited Edition Trip to India papers from Rouge de Garance, My Mind's Eye Magnolia and my funky favourite Doodlebug Frills.

Hmm what to make next.... ;)
