White With ......

This month over at White With One, the colour to focus on is Liquorice.
I had fun doing this one.

I've been in a bit of a crap place at the moment as it's now 
been 12 months since my cancer diagnosis and all these feelings have resurfaced.
I thought it would be good to scrap some of these thoughts ... although I am 
not sharing my journaling on this, it is on the the back of the page.

Also, Imaginarium Designs have sponsored this month 
and all the girls have used our chipboard on their pages!

So head over to White With One and have a look 
at what the Design Team have created and have a go yourself!

Love ......

 Happy Sunday peeps....

Although the June main is quite feminine and girly, I decided this week to create a grungy masculine page - slightly soppy too! LOL

Using the Alphas as inspiration, I found the perfect quote from Pinterest to go with my photo and made a start on laying out the words.

I didn't have enough letters to complete it but by trimming down a couple of letters and adding in some Thickers and Heidi Swapp alphas from my stash, I came up with a solution that looks OK and is effective.

Thanks for stopping by ...
Have a great day

Happy .....

Happy Sunday peeps!

The June Main kit from A Piece of Cake Designs has the cutest little acetate tags and embellishments from Chic Tags.

They were the perfect embellishment to compliment these papers.

Have a great weekend!

Inky love ......

 I love this form of creativity ... I love to teach ... I love to create while I teach! LOL!!!

This class was from May ... my Advanced Creative Scrapbooking class.

We spent the class talking about tissue paper, texture paste and mist.

This is the class example I created....

And this is what I created on the night while I was teaching!

Love it!

Have a great day
