Jot Mood Board - February 2016...

Hey there!
Just popping in to share the new mood board over at Jot and my sample page I created.

This month, the mood board colours/images were chosen by...ME!
I absolutely love putting together mood boards, choosing colour combos and such - SUPER FUN!
So here it is...



I actually don't really 'do' purple but I just LOVE this mood board. Maybe cos all the other colours just go so well with the purple tones mixed in there. It just looks bold and pretty. 
I was super keen to create with it...which proved harder than I thought. 
Surprisingly, pulling products together that would work for this layout proved to be rather easy. There is quite a lot of ranges that suited this colour combo rather well.
The hard bit was finding photos I wanted to scrap that would go with these colours and also the page design! 
It was actually a photo I'd taken ON THE DAY I was set to do my layout that made the cut. My daughter wanted to try some REAL lipstick so I pulled out the Sangria shade and coloured up her lips! She loved it and was quite willing to pose with her new look ;-)


So here is my layout!  
The end result is quite a bold, bright display of colour!
But I'm strangely liking it. Definitely different to some of my other works but I'm rolling with it.

MATERIALS USED:
Products from collections by Simple Stories, Crate Paper, Basic Grey, Heidi Swapp, and Dear Lizzy.
- whipped spackle
- thickers
- resin flower and enamel dots
- doily
- printer


If you're keen to join in the challenge, you will find all the deets HERE plus more samples by some of the Jot girls!

There is an awesome prize up for grabs from the lovely Jodie York!

Happy Creating!

Hello my lovely readers!
It's time for another week of...

1. There are many covers and renditions of Adele's song 'Hello' but some just stick out more than others, like THIS one :-)

2. I've always loved the look of Gossamer Blue kits and Kellie only fuels that love with her creations...love seeing her work!

3. Let 2016 be more focused on Work/Life INTEGRATION as opposed to work/life BALANCE.

4. Sharing this blog post from Collective Hub with a list of 8 time saving apps that will boost your efficiency! I've purchased the Quint app - am yet to use it yet but looks very well set out and easy to navigate from what I can see. I'm sure a review will ensue ;-)

5. Clicked through to this link from an email and found the 3 things to simplify your schedule that she shares quite interesting - especially number 2.

Have an awesome weekend - stay safe!

2. I like the look of THIS blanket to knit.

3. I'm always in love with collections from Maggie Holmes - and THIS one is no exception!

4. Green Smoothie Prep Packs! So need to do this!

Happy Weekend All :-)

January Days...

Hiya!
How's the first month of the new year treating you all??
Being summertime here in Aus, we are on school holidays and we are off camping with a bunch of our neighbours in town. All the kids are signed up to VacSwim lessons so our days are taken up with that for the most part.
Here are a few images that depict our January days so far...


^^Note -- this vehicle was stationary! Please don't think we ferry our kids around so unsafely! LOL!

We are definitely a wild bunch. Camping is either a real hoot or a complete ruckus! LOL!

Good times :-)

What is occupying your days this fine January?

Hello!
Here we are with another week of...


2. There are many articles and blog posts on the web and in other publications that touch on the subject of busyness and how we are addicted to being busy. This article, How Busyness Crushes Your Soul, is another one of these but I wanted to share it as I always feel challenged by these topics and agree wholeheartedly that we as individuals and as a society, are taking on too much and creating an unrealistic 'need' for busyness.

3. Tissues are imperative for this video. I just wanted to share an interview that Heidi Swapp did about how memories can help heal.
In the end, it is our memories that keep going; our stories live on!

4. I'm going to print this off and keep in my journal to remind me regularly to remind my girls of these things. Teach them while they're young they say :-)

5. Being a new year, here are some goals to set that are more about enjoying what you have rather than chasing what you don't!
All the points were brilliant but point 4, 6, and 7 made quite an impression on me!

Have a safe and blessed weekend!
Keep smiling!
