Monday Times! - CW134 A Special Tribute to somebody older in our lives ~ a retirement would be appropriate

Hello Monday! This week at Kaboodle Doodles - craft something for a special tribute to somebody older in our lives ~ a retirement would be appropriate. I thought it would be nice to say hello to a 'more' wonderful life moving forward. I'm not saying that that the current life of working is not good enough but perhaps going to retirement would mean an opportunity for one to explore other interests :) Join us at Kaboodle Doodles and this week we have a sponsor and one lucky crafter would get a $10 voucher Crop Stop

Noteables - PP from American Craft Confetti Buttercream Bobby, Bo Bunny Ad Lib, Fiskars tab punch, Sentiments from Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards Saying Hello, MT Masking tape

Let's Scrap 8-22-2012

Seriously (bleah).... Don't you love his look? This shot of kid #2 was taken at kid #1 birthday party 2 years ago, the 1st birthday party which kid #2 attended. He was probably overwhelmed by the number of guests and the noise in the party, looking pretty stone in the photo. He was 1year and 2months old (Pst... did you notice anything that reveals his age?). This is my 1st layout on WHITE cardstock, very minimal pattern paper (except those on the flower sack embellishment) and TONNES of stamping and texture paste! And of course some accidents of splatter onto the little one's face... I'll buck up on that! Oh by the way, I used the sketch 8-22-12 for this layout. Do join us at Let's Scrap!

Noteables : Bazzill 12x12 smooth white cardstock, Crafters' Workshop Mini Bricks template, Dylusion Lemon Zest/Squeezed Orange/London Blue, the whole lot of Tim Holtz Distressed inks, ink blender, Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Mixed Media/Psychedelic Grunge/Floral Tattoos/Ticket stamps, Maya Road chipboard alphas, October Afternoon Farmhouse flower sack, Crate Paper Bingo chip

Monday Times! - CW131 It's our Sister's Day

Good Monday to you! It's our Sister's Day at Kaboodle Doodles and we have a sponsor The Stamping Boutique. Do drop by  Kaboodle Doodles for more details you could win from this week's sponsor.

So, what would you give to your sister? Well if you do not have a sister, what would it be for a girl friend who is almost a sister to you? This would be my take on the theme for a girl friend. Had you noticed ? My recent cards are pretty pink. Yes, I've got lots of pink paper but I'm (still) not a very pink person.

Thrusday's Up! - Smothered

This card s out for publication.. brb!

It's Thrusday! Hop over to 365cards. The main idea for today's theme SMOTHERED is to cover your card with decoration - Choke up your card with decorations. My girly 4x6 card is stuffed with 1 little birdcage emblishment, 3 flowers, 5 buttons and 5 punched butterflies but I just had leave a some 'white' space to show off the pretty BG Indie Bloom. What's yours?

Noteables : Basic Grey Indie Bloom 6x6, Maya Road trinket flowers, Autumn Leaves Buttons, Technique Tuesday Simple Joy sentiment stamps, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, October Afternoon journalling card, Beadspin Birdcage

SBM ATC Private Swap

This ATC is meant for private swap organised by Olive, from a local crafting group. The theme is FLOWER. So here's Nature Elements with Barn Door, Spiced Marigold and Evergreen Bough distress ink. Sentiment is from TH's Stuff to Say, stamped using Hero Arts Mid Tone Pool. Can't help it but I just had to make the dolp of ink at the corner with Dylusions Squeezed Orange. It's pretty obvious I can't get enough of Tim Holtz's range and Dylusions!
