Guest designer for Funky Flairs & Kraft+ March challenge

So today is a little bit exciting for me. Funky Flair Studio is one of the sponsors for Kraft+ March challenge and as part of the dt I got to be a guest designer this month :D
The challenge is to use the sketch and fussy cutting...

I flipped the sketch but apart from that I think I stayed pretty true to it. I love Kraft+ so this is a huge buzz for me. Hope you get some time to join in the fun and don't forget your funky flairs for that finishing touch ;) They really are awesome quality flairs and last months releases were just divine.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for popping by..Jx

Kraft+ January challenge

Yes, it has been a very long time since my poor little blog has been shown any tlc but I'm back today with my lo for the Kraft+ challenge. I am also SOO excited to share that I am starting the new year with my first gig on a dt for funky flair studio. Couldn't quite believe it when Evie sent me a yes and had to keep reading my email in case I had read it wrong hehe.
Anyhoo, here is my lo...
And here is the image and link for Kraft+

Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful start to the year and thanks for popping by..Jx

October Counterfeit Kit

Good morning. I'm popping in today to share my homemade kit for Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Gorgeous colours in this months kit and already making good use of it.
I actually chose a few papers this time...
And then added my embellies...

The brown flowers and ephemera I found just loose in this drawer during a recent clean up and they were perfect for adding to my kit with the added bonus of not having to find them a new home hehe...
This is the link and original kit...

All those beautiful blues and browns are going to be perfect for some recent beach photos taken so I am hopeful of making a good dent in my kit this month. And on that note I am off.
Have a great day & thanks for looking..Jx

CKC Sept #2 challenge

This one I actually finished last week and was a gift but am finally getting around to sharing it now. We have had an exchange student staying with us for the last 3 months and I wanted to make a memory for her to take home. The CKC challenge was the perfect inspiration I needed....
Despite it being winter weather and not a lot of spare time, we did manage to visit a few different places and this was taken on one of our weekends away. We were very lucky to have such a beautiful girl become a part of our family and I loved putting this together for her.
This picture is really not doing justice to the colours although they were rather rustic but I am struggling with my current photo program. I have tried a couple since updating my computer but haven't found anything I like as much as my old program which is now longer available. If anyone has any suggestions for a good one I would love to hear from you.

Have a great day and thanks for looking..Jx

D-Lish September challenge

Happy Saturday eveyone.  I have just squeezed this one in with a couple of hours to spare!  Had a couple of false starts but happy with the end result now :D
This is the link to D-Lish and the mood board...

I took my inspiration from the running paint and the butterfly image. I'm off now to have a really good clean up of my scrap space ready for the new month.
Have a great day and thanks for looking..Jx

Let's Get Sketchy Sept challenge - She completes me

Wow, it is the most beautiful spring day here today. Don't you just love when the days get longer and brighter? :D
Today I am sharing my lo for the Let's Get Sketchy challenge. My daughter is a bit of a selfie addict and I am trying to get out from behind the camera a bit more. It is such an effort to like having my photo taken as I really am not very photogenic but she is very encouraging so this is a photo of the two of us together.
Here is the sketch and link...

I was also happy to use papers from my CKC kit which matched her swim suit perfectly, bonus!

Well I'm off to enjoy some more of this glorious sunshine. Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for popping by..Jx

Kraft+ September challenge

My goodness, I said I would be back with a challenge and I actually have :D
Todays share is for Kraft+. I have completed at least 3 Kraft+ challenges lately and haven't managed to post a single one of them so finally I have and not even close to the end of the month either hehe. I recently came into possession of this photo of my Mum as a child in marching girls (she is the one on the end) and when I saw this challenge it was the first photo I thought of. They reminded me of little worker bees all in a row in their yellow and black...
This is the challenge....

I used papers from my CKC kit for the hexagons and although I was a bit unsure at times I am pretty pleased with the final result.

Hope you are having a wonderful day and thanks for popping by..Jx
