More shares from the May C'est Magnifique Kit :)

Hi lovely blog readers and hello to all of my new followers too :) 
Thankyou so much for your kind comments left on my blog while you were hopping around on the C'est Magnifique Blog Hop.  The winners have been announced over here so congratulations to all of you.  Thankyou all for taking the time to visit and be inspired!!
I have my last 3 creations out of the May kit "Spring's Portrait" to share with you.
The first one of my gorgeous niece Gracie.  This was the last layout I created and I think it turned out to be my favourite.  I thought I had next to nothing left out of the kit but I was pleasently surprised!!!!

I love the colour scheme here, the touch of lime green making it different to any of the other layouts.

I made a big flower out of the apricot lace by gathering it together.  I then layered the perfect petal accent to it.

This next layout is actually based on this lovely sketch here:

My eldest and me......he's getting so big!!!


Love the gorgeous Blue Fern chipboard Butterflies.....

My last layout is featuring my nephew Max at Christmas time.  I am not a lover of using red in my pages but couldn't help but throw splashes of it in here with a Christmassy themed layout. 


I hope you enjoyed the rest of my creations using this beautiful kit......I must, however, get to bed now, it's late!!!!

Paperhaus Feature :)

I am finally able to share my creations I created for Paperhaus magazine for the Spring issue.  Here is the link for the current issue.  I was honoured to be a featured artist and to have a sneak of my page on the cover was so amazing!!!! Thankyou to Frank and everyone at Paperhaus for having me :)  It's a truly beautiful magazine so check it out!!
Here is my layout that features on the cover.................
"Mumma's Love"

This layout would be my new favourite, I am addicted to these colours!!!!!!  Plus I just love this pic of me and my baby boy :)  I was so nervous about creating these layouts for Paperhaus, but they came together perfectly. 
Loads of gorgeous Prima and mixed media!


My second layout also featured Prima and a beachy theme.  I am pretty sure have noticed how much I adore creating with shells........oh, how I love the beach and collecting them!!!!  If you didn't notice the colour scheme used for both layouts were the same, this palette is just divine for spring :)
"I Want To Have Adventure's With You"


The gorgeous Corine flowers, which I just misted in the middle to match the colours!!

Thankyou so much for dropping by, hope you are having a lovely day!  We are off for a walk now to pick up the big boy from school!

Hope you are all well :)  I am here to share some creations with you! 
My first layout today is featuring the brand new products from Shimmerz.  They are called Dazzlerz and Texturez.  The Dazzlerz are really bright fun colours and the Texturez are more pastel and gritty, perfect for using with those stencils.
I have used the Dazzlerz in Dreamsicle (orange) and Lemon Drop (yellow).  I have used Texturez in Tidy Whidy (white) with my chevron mask. 
"Polka Dot, Polka Dot, Polka Dot"

Here is a closeup of the texture for you..........

(If you have watched Madagascar 3 you will get my reference in this layout.....lol........plus it is the wig we got when we bought the dvd!)

So I hope you get a chance to play with these new products soon, they are so so fun!!!!!

Here is another Shimmerz layout combined with lots of pretties and the Maggie Holmes line :) 
Here is what I used:

Spritz in 4 Leaf Clover and Ruby
Shimmerz in Tickle Me Turquoise and Bubble Gum
Vibez in Pop Art Pink
"Hello - I love You"

A few weeks back on the Prima blog I shared this layout featuring the Wishful Thinking line.  I really love the way this one turned out, certainly not my normal colours (apart from the turq) though!  And loving all of the Junkyard findings too :)

I layered the clock onto one of the bigger flowers, just the right size with a few petals hanging out underneath.

Oh and this gorgeous girl featured in My Prima Place Issue this month!  Such a pretty layout for a pretty little girl :) 
"Gorgeous Girl"

Some more closeups :

Lastly today, I made a card using up some of the remainder kit items from my guest spot over at Flying Unicorn.
"Give Hugs"

Okay that is it for today, I appreciate your visit and just want to thank all you lovelies that left me a super sweet comment on my Guest role last post!!!
I must go, I have projects coming out of my ears at the moment!
