The Color Room #95 + Shimmerz

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.  It has been quite miserable and wet here the past week and doesn't seem to be letting up anytime soon!  Just thought I would pop by with a couple of new layouts:)  The first one is for the Color Room palette #95.  I thought Christmas as soon as I saw the palette.  I have used a combination of Crate, October Afternoon, Hambly and of course Prima!  I even used the awesome sketch this time round.

"Merry Christmas"

Some closeups:

I snuck in a little Glitz too (oh how I love to mix product)!!

Here is the palette and sketch, have a go, I'd love to see what you create:)

My second layout is my DT layout for Shimmerz:)  I have used some neutral colours and also brought out some of the blues that are in the papers. 

Shimmerz used:

Vibez in Egg Noggin
Spritz in Rock a Fella Blue
Spritz in Sapphire
Pearlz in Blue Into Town
Blingz in Gold Glimmer

"Our Little Piece of Paradise"

Some closeups: I blended all of the colours together and using a paintbrush I highlighted with the Blingz and Pearlz.

Don't forget you can still get your limited edition Valentine Set here. I'll be working with this gorgeous set next month:)

Only a couple of days before I pick a winner for my giveaway.  You can find it all here!
Thanks for visiting.

CHA **Prima** En Francais

This sweet collection by Prima is just perfect for my baby boy!!  I love the cute little rocking horse motifs:)  Also adore the script background paper that I just added my own touches of paint too!  Cute little dots and also great for those Paris/holiday pics.....having never been over seas (let alone to Paris) I opted to use on my cutie intead!  So it's a very versatile range!!

"You Are Loved"

Beautiful new flowers in all shapes and sizes, gorgeous new SIIC and stamps and lots of new additions like the Genie Stones, Pins and new Trinkets:):)
Some closeups:

Here is the range and pictures of the new flowers and trinkets I used:

I just want to share a couple of pictures from our party.  I made these gorgeous tissue paper pom poms.......the easiest thing ever to make and they looked stunning!!!!  I just found the tutorial on You tube:)  The colours didn't quite turn out in this pic, the pink was more fushia like all the colours in the above project!

My invitations........all handmade once again.  Punched ends, some rafia and ribbon layered bows and finished with a 30th dot!!

Some pics from the night.....our awesome cake.  Thankyou so much to one of Tim's co-workers, she did a fabulous job:):) 

My boys and I xo

Cutting our cake, I think Tim was about to take a big pretend bite out of it.....hence the wierd look on his!!

Mummy and her big boys:)

That's about it today, off to get a little creative:)

**Prima** CHA Almanac

Oh my, Prima have done it again with so many amazing new collections:)  My first CHA layout I will share with you is using the Almanac Collection, also known as Printery no. 2.

When we went to Great Keppel Island a week before Christmas I took some new pics of the boys.  This collection has beautiful sandy tones through it that matched perfectly.  I also toned it down by steering clear of the black in the collection and adding a touch of blue to match Cooper's shirt.

"Count the Waves"

Just some closeups to share too:

I have lots more Prima to share with you soon:)

I also want to thank you all for participating in my RAK.......totally overwhelmed by the amount of comments so far!!  You still have a couple more weeks before I draw a winner so make sure you check my last post:):)

Our party was fantastic (pics on that another time), this week I am getting Cooper organised for his first year of school as a preppie and Mason has started crawling AND cut his first tooth!!!! 

So that's my little update, have a beautiful week xo

Blog candy giveaway!

Hi lovely blog readers, just popping by with a RAK I would love to give away:):)  It is a collection of papers, embellies and flowers from the beautiful Romantique collection by Prima.  So all you have to do is leave me a lovely comment here and I will draw a winner on the 31st of January.  Don't forget to tell your friends too and post it on your blog if you like:):)

I created a canvas using the Romantique range for a friend to give as a gift. I have already shared this over at the Shimmerz blog.  I am becoming so addictive to Shimmerz.  I literally shimmer everything atm!!!

I hope you like my example of using this gorgeous Prima collection.

On another note, I am just about to pack my box for CHA and our party is this weekend.....hence the reason I haven't been around much.....busy, busy, busy!!!!

With a new year we now must say goodbye to 2011. Thought I would share with you some of my favourite layouts for the year.  Do you know how hard this was for me to choose!!!  I have truly loved creating each and every layout/project which made it so hard just to choose a few!  So here they are in no particular order:):)

2011 proved to be an amazing year all round for me, a year of hopes and dreams come true.  A beautiful new baby, an awesome year with my big boy at Kindy, a big 30th birthday (party to come.....woot woot), beautiful memories with all my boys and a truly amazing year scrapping wise!!!!  I am so grateful for the opportunities I've been given this year and so so appreciative of all of your kind words and comments, support and friendships.  It means more to me than you will ever know! 
Hugs to you all xoxo
