A digi layout for A-Z scraplets

Good morning everybody,

How is your Sunday treating you? My Sunday is a cleaning day.
Just put my first load into the washing machine. Weather is not good. Muggy and drizzling.
So my house will be filled with the portable clothes line with clothes on it.
I do not like to use the dryer. It shrinks, sometimes stretches and ruins the clothes.
And I am a bit conscious of my contribution to the global warming.

Anyway, I have a few stuff to show you all.
To start with I have this digital layout made for A-Z scraplets sketch challenge #2.
They have it in the blog which you can find in the right hand side of my blog.
I have used papers and elements from various designers.
I like the drape in particular and the windows.Aren’t they cute?

So if you have the time and are sketch lovers, just go to A-Z scraplets blog,
get the sketch, make a layout and email it to them.
All details are in their blog.
Have a go at it.
Awesome prizes.

Ok. got to go now.

Catch you soon with my take on Basic Grey Challenge Blog challenge.

Fun at the beach

Hey Everybody,

How is your weekend going? Mine is busy as usual so far. Still unable to find time to scrap during the daytime. I managed to scrap last night. But seems like my mojo has run away. Or after concentrating on digital scrapbooking, I found it hard to make a traditional one.

Again I have used a ledger pattern paper as the base and Kaiser craft papers for layers. Various embellishments like Kaiser craft pearls, tickets, tags, SEI diecut flower and 7 gypsies stickers. Pink Paislee alphas for title and words.
Photo was taken at Esperance beach in WA.

There are some lovely challenges at Debscreations for March. Register and have fun. Would love to see your work in the gallery.

Ok remember on March 1st, that is tomorrow, there will be a sketch in my sketch blog and a simple rule. Its a challenge ladies and email me your layouts. I will display it in the blog.One lucky person will receive a RAK from me.

OK until next time…


Wow!! I recieved my prize today…

There was a surprise in my postbox yesterday!!

Yes, I received my prize, I won for the Rub it in challenge at SB dot com.
So excited to see the prizes. Who wouldn’t love bling flourishes and fibers.
Nikki posted the prize from USA. Thanks Nikki. Appreciate it.
Your “Thank you” card is awesome too.

Awesome isn’t it?

I made a card out of acetate sheet. First time for me. I liked making it.

It did not take a long time.Very easy than I thought it would be.

Simple and neat. I think I will do more often.

Here it is:

OK, catch you later this evening then.
Have a nice day.



Storm? What storm?

It was such a fuss yesterday as it got windy and people rushing to get home quick, picking up kids from school. I too picked them up early and went home, secured all loose items and then waited for the storm……..


and waited………..

and waited……………

What storm? There was none.
It got really really hot, went upto 40 degrees but no storm at all.Crazy weather!!
The weather department said pokies lol!!!!
I had some 3 emails about the storm yesterday at work but nothing happened.

Cha!!, I thought it happens only in India and the meterology is pretty good here.
Weather is unpredictable I guess!!

Today it looks like it will storm.
Heavy storm clouds, humid and hot.
I am going to enjoy the rain and hail and all.If at all it happens.
I am sure it is happening somewhere closeby but not in the town. Cha…

I managed to make my ATCs for the swap at Debscreations

and here it is.

I loved the bright pink background. Paper from Pink Paislee. Stamp from Bizzy Becs. I have used Distress inks to color the image and mounted it on double sided foam. Diva made out of Dymo.

If you are interested, you could join for the next round, starting march 15th.

OK got to cook dinner. Until next time….



Severe thunderstorm warning

There is a severe thunderstorm warning with flash floods, large hail and severe winds. We are all asked to go home and secure loose items and disconnect all electrical items. I haven’t been in such a situation before. I am feeling a bit child like and Yay! some hail I can collect some more put it in the freezer. On the other hand, got to pick up the kids from school early and get inside the house soon before everything happens. I have a bird with me too. OMG! she will freak out with the thunder and lightening………..

Well, I am still sitting here waiting for the wind to pick up, so I can go and get the kids from school.A bit anxious. I don’t want the car to get damaged as well! It is not too bad outside. I can see it a bit windy, clouds at a distance. I am anxious.I am I am…I hate thunder and lightening. I freak out too.

Should I go now or wait? Thats the question always, isn’t it? I am not sure if its going to storm sooner or later. Unpredictable weather.

Better be safe than sorry. I am going now. See you all later this evening. Will let you know more about the storm. Hehehe!



Basic Grey Challenge #23

This challenge is all about color combination.
So here are the combos to choose from.
And there should be at least one Basic Grey product in the card or layout.

Pink and Green

Pink and Brown

Blue and Brown.

I have choose Pink and Brown combination.
I liked that idea of using brown with pink instead of black.
Moreover I have so many photos of Aditi I want to scrap.

Here is my take on the challenge.

Base cardstock is light brown. I have used Basic Grey papers from Porcelain, Bittersweet and Stella Ruby paper lines here. Also Basic Grey Porcelain stickers, Prima Say it in crystals bling flourishes and center piece, Heidi Swapp alphas, Scrapbook blossoms flowers and leaves and 7 Gypsies overlay.

Some closeups for you:

Thanks for stopping by



Moments like this matters

Remember last week I had a visit to my LSS and I said I picked up some ledger papers.
Yes, this Lime green paper is one of them. Just loved how vibrant the paper was.
I wanted to make a traditional layout, after some digi layouts.
So I decided to use this paper to make a quick layout.
I also wanted the vibrant color to show. Therefore opted for a minimalist approach.
Photo is one of Siddarth rare good one.
He always makes faces when he is photographed.
So moments like these where he has a natural smile, matters a lot to me.
Actually, I only have a few such good photos of him.
As I said my weekend is very busy. It has been today.
My eyelids are heavy and closing.
I need to get some sleep.
Thanks for stopping by.


Some rambling and a layout…

Hey everybody,

Its friday already. Weekend is fast approaching. What have you all planned?
I have a long list fo things to do. My weekend does not look like time to relax.
Apart from cleaning the house, washings and others, I have to take kids for music class, then theory lessons for music, the stamp club.
I then have a friend of Siddarth come for play. Leave Aditi to her friend’s house for play,so on… Looks like I will be spending most of my time in the car going from one place to another.
Oh!! no!! I hate doing that. Do I have a choice? NO!!!!
So, no point even thinking about cribing…
I wish I can spend some time relaxed and scrapping.
There got be someway of doing that.
Will sit an get organized.

I have one more layout to show you.
Yes, Digi again to show you.
Here it is.

I seriously want to make layouts using my new Basic Grey purchases.
I got my new stash last week and I still can’t find time to scrap them.

I have something else to show you too.

Chris W sent me this. So sweet of her.
Gorgeous stuff. Love them to bits, Chris.
Many thanks.

Ok thats it for today.
