Burlesque Beauties - NEW from Tattered Inspirations

Hello girls!

Take a look at this kit! It's a stunner! You will have to be quick for it because I'm sure it will sell fast!

The layout above is what I created with the kit. I loved it to bits!! My friend Kath and I did some 'in-store' modelling for ts14+ at Castle Towers last year and I thought the photo was perfect for this LO with the colours spot on! Oh and we felt 'beautiful' too!

You can purchase the kit here for under $9. Now that's what I call a "must have"!

A Couple of Cards

It started with the top card and then I applied the same design to the card challenge in the cybercrop at the Little Scrapbook Shop this past weekend ~ the card sketch was a beauty and I enjoyed producing the same card a different way.

Thanks for stopping by!

How Does Your Garden Grow?

I used a mini-kit from Tattered Inspirations to create this LO. Unfortunately the kit has sold out but I'd thought I'd share this LO anyway!

Tattered Inspirations - Man About Town Kit + Vintage Seam Binding

I am just loving creating with the beautiful products on offer from Tattered Inspirations.
The latest Vintage Kit is titled "Man About Town". I found it perfect to scrap a newly acquired photo of my Pa. It has lovely textured tweed fabric, beautiful cabachons and other lovely vintage elements. I tried to attach a picture of the kit but it wouldn't work. I will keep trying! Otherwise click here to see the kit!
Also, in last month's Tattered Inspirations newsletter, Carol mentioned some different ways to use the Vintage Seam Binding on sale in the shop. I have created some samples to monstrate these techniques:

Use on the top of a tag or gather it with a strand of cotton:

Tie around the stem of a flower or place flat with double sided tape:

Tie in a floppy bow &/or use under/above a flower:

Thanks for stopping by. Fell free to leave me a comment. It makes my day!

January ARTastic Challenge - RENOIR!

January's ART Inspiration ~
"Luncheon of the Boating Party" by Renoir!

My Design Team inspiration. I chose to focus on the added criteria this month.
The story behind this photo is that Deb and I only met for the first time in August at a scrapbooking retreat and we have formed a fabulous friendship. I was lucky enough to holiday close to where she lives a month later and we caught up again a few times. Here we are on Father's Day 2010 having lunch ata lovely cafe with her hubby Pete (taking the photo) in Nana Glen. 

January's inspiration will come from the painting 'Luncheon of the Boating Party' by Renoir. Shazza asked each of the Design Team members to choose a painting for inspiration and this happens to my choice and Peggy's. There is just such a positive and happy feel about the painting and the image of a celebration is so appropriate for this time of year. I do hope you can find time to participate this month.

Diva Demand for an extra 6 bonus points
Try and work the following into your layout:

1. Scrap a celebration = 1pt

2. 3 or more people in the layout = 2pts

3. Food somewhere on the layout = 3pts

I'm sure most of you would have a picture of a celebration of some sort amongst your photos. I hope you can join in with the challenge this month. There are some great prizes on offer!
