Hello everyone,
 I'm back to share a layout with an Earthy~ Nature tone. Another of my daughter Mackenna and featuring some gorgeous Umwowstudio chipboard.
I really should share some boys layouts but my oldest son Tarquinn at 12 keeps at me saying 'not too much colour and no flowers' so most layouts get started and put to the side because that wonderful product of flowers once I start creating just keeps saying 'Pick Me'!
The photo is a few years old but one of my many favourites.
'Happy Memory'

 UmWowStudio products used:

My Layout was also inspired by the Umwowstudio April sketch....I flipped the sketch though as I love to focus on the left hand side of my pages.
Till next time..

Hi there bloggers,
Today I have dropped in to share a quick post and some layouts from DT spots and classes
I taught last year.
I actually forgot to post them here .... oops! I went through my blog and realized they
were nowhere to be seen -dopey me.
First up I have a DT layout for Scrapmatts
'Beautiful Lyon' 

I'm told this is one of the all time favourite class layouts that I have taught
'Eternal moments'
This is also a class layout and Scrapmatts DT layout featuring some 7Dots Studio Destination unknown paper and tags. I said this was a quick post - time for sleep!

Buckle up - Prima Bap for February!

Hi there bloggers!
I got 2 huge happy mail packages this week
1. full of the latest
'NEW' Scrapmatts releases and my oh my! are the just 'to die for'.
I have been wanting chains in chipboard for so long and the buckles -TDF!!!
2. Prima from Your Scrapbook Supply with the latest Papers and Finnabair products.
With these new releases - I'm in heaven.....I did mix a little of the older Prima products in though because I can't resist those too!
So I decided to do a really dark, grungy mixed media layout......

For sketch inspiration, I decided to join in with the Prima February's Build A Page sketch challenge:
