The Great Outdoors

Hi there everyone,

Do you love the Great Outdoors? I know I do. My family just loves bushwalking and finding great playgrounds for the kids. So when the current challenge over at Frosted Designs was chosen, I was really spoilt for choice.  I have so many great outdoors photos. But I settled on these because they are so bright and fun.

These photos were taken when we were driving from Sydney to Brisbane, a trip of about 12 hours. We stopped at a Driver Reviver rest area for a well deserved cuppa and there just happened to be a fab play area behind it. So our half hour cuppa break turned into a couple of hours so the kids could have a decent play. But I guess happy kids make for a happy car journey.

If you have some great outdoor shots, then why not pop over to Frosted Designs and join in the current challenge. We would love to see what you do.

Thanks for dropping by and have a scrap happy day.

Tips & Tricks

Hi there,

Do you wish that you could buy matching embellishments that co-ordinate with the gorgeous washi tape that you have. I know many a time I have wanted to use a particular washi tape but it just didn't look right with the embellishments that I wanted to use. Well I have solved the problem. Make your own embellishments using your washi tape.

All you need is some white card stock, your washi tape and some small punches. Now just put strips of your washi tape on the card stock and then cut into individual strips. I do several different designs at once so I build up a stash of embellishments at one time.

 Now just grab your little punches and start punching. Don't they look cute.

But if you add to them using other dies like I have here, then you get the cutest embellishments to match your washi tape.

 Hope I have given you a little bit of inspiration today.

Hexagons and Bakers Twine

Hi there,

Today I have a project to share with you that I did for the Facebook Group Scrap It With Attitude. It is the theme for the current challenge, so would love to see you join the group and give the challenge a go.

The hexagons are easy to see,  but I bet you can't find all the Bakers Twine easily. There is the obvious strands at the bottom, but where else do you see it?

Everyone who correctly answers in the comments section will go into the draw to win a little something from me.

Good luck and hope to see you over at Scrap It With Attitude.
