Hey hey hey!

Thanks for stopping by! Seems its confession time here... Being a DT member is a blessing and I am so thankful for the opportunity to represent such a fantastic store, and to work with this crazy talented bunch of ladies BUT it is also a challenge! In being a DT member I am provided with store items to share how I use them in my layouts and hopefully inspire some of you lovelies to give these products a go. But this months kit - well its a challenge! Full of lovey dovey cards and journal prompts, when my relationship has ended just a few months ago and I am not feeling particularly lovey dovey lol.
SO I  had to rethink the way I was scrapping to see if I could find a way to showcase these gorgeous products. I think I did okay :)

Thought I would share something a little more relaxed this week, so here is a couple of 6x12 layouts that I have just completed.

I wanted to make sure that I did a layout celebrating how much we LOVE Australia Day - but I didn't want it to be all red and blue (I find that leans toward USA Independence Day). So I thought the love themed cards were perfect for sharing! The cards used are from MAMBI and the gold overlay is from the Heidi Swapp collection teamed with gorgeous enamel dots and cheap alpha stickers that I made a little more funky with some black doodling.
This next layout is going in an album I am doing just for me... I am pretty sure this album will evolve as time goes on, but I am going to start sharing some more of it. It might not be traditional content, but that's how it works with PROJECT MY LIFE!

This layout came together so quickly, and I am really happy with how it turned out! Once again, the MAMBI cards and some gorgeous embellishments and it all just flowed, completed in about 20 minutes. This is probably a little less embellished that I usually create too. I used some Heidi Swapp lace trim and Heidi's gold foil from the value kit with some Studio Calico Veneer hearts that I just coloured with some gold Color Shine Just a tip, if you are colouring your veneers with the Color Shine, be patient, let the first coat dry and apply a second coat for awesome results!
