Hello 2015


Just sneaking in before January disappears on us to post my effort with the Scrappy Canary Blog
January Sketch.

The Sketch

My Layout

Is layout is a bit different for me for a couple of reasons,
1 - It is a little out of my normal style I think. I have used lots of stamps, maybe to justify to myself for having so many, mists, in all not a style layout I normally do
2 - This is the first time I have scrappy about what I want to achieve for myself during the year.
I will call this Goals, not resolutions.
Product wise have used Scrappy Canary papers and embellisments, August Kit I think.
Stamps, Stencil and Cardstock are from Kaisercraft.
Flair & Wood Veneer Title from Studio Fourteen40.
Thanks for Looking

If Only

Morning & Happy Friday to all,

Today I am posting a layout I have done based on the 15th December sketch over a Another Freakin Scrappy Challenge.

This is me with the Cricket World Cup Trophy which is doing a tour of Australia
at the grounds promoting next months World Cup being held in Australia.
As the title says If Only - I love cricket, played locally for many years and
would have loved to play for my country and hold the trophy up in real life
after winning it, but not to be. Of course my era would have been while
Australia have some of the best cricketers the world has ever seen, so can only dream lol.
The PP are from Feature Art - Outdoor Passions with some Kaisercraft cardstock.
Stamps and rub ons from Kaiser. The little players I have cut from the PP.

Title is Amy Tangerine Thickers
Thanks for looking
