Love My New Camera Feb 2017

OK.. now this is just ridiculous. Months of no scrapping and here's another page! The Pixels & Paper challenge with the cute little hearts really spoke to me and I really wanted to give that a go. I ended up tossing the colours but re-created the heart concept on my page. It was great to finally use almost every single heart in my digi collection that I rarely use, which inspired me to use others that I never use - the patterned paper, ribbon, and stitching too!

The birds from top left are (clockwise) : Pacific Black Duck, Sacred Kingfisher, Darter, Australasian Grebe, Eastern Yellow Robin. With the new camera I can get up close and personal with most birds, all I need is practise now to get the perfect shots.

Remembering My Auntie Edna Feb 2017

It's been 3 years since my Nan passed, and almost 12 months since her sister, my Auntie Edna, passed away. Following vivid dreams of them all still being alive, I decided to scrap a page about my Auntie Edna and what I loved most about visiting her.

I used the CSI case file no 224 to create my page. I loved the colours and the inspiring Scene. Things on it reminded me of my Auntie straight off; the cactus - how I would trade her a succulent or cacti she didn't have and she'd give me one I didn't have, the scissors - how she introduced me to my current hairdresser as she used to get her hair set every week and coloured it blonde right up to her late 80's, the watering can and her love of some of the things in her garden that reminded her of her husband who she outlived by more than 30 years, the rabbit - reminds me of easter and the time I would drop in and see her with an easter gift, and the acorn - often found as decoration on tombstones or graves of dearly departed.

How I solved the case : Testimony: use an item from The Scene as inspiration (see above) & Mix of Lettering, Evidence : plain cardstock, animal icon, other plant (pansy), food element (berries), flags & triangles, scissors, diecuts.

The journaling in the triangles reads : M - I'd bring you a succulent plant and you'd trade one of yours I didn't have, I - You were always interested in what I was doing and in seeing my scrapbooking pages, S - I'd drop in for a catch up and you'd always give me a cuppa and a biscuit, S - You loved playing card games for money - Solo and Bridge and going on cruises Y - You loved your cricket and Home and Away and had the biggest TV I'd seen at the time, O - You knitted some amazing throws and cardigans that looked like a machine had done it, U - When I was little you talked more and faster than anyone else I knew. You excelled at gossip. Feb17 - You got your hair permed every week, and I've been using your hairdresser for over 20 years.

Oh, and I was inspired by this page from CSI 223  to use a little bit of black or dark colour in behind the photo to help ground it to the page better. :)

Still Loving February 2017

OK I know. Two pages in one month. What is going on? And similar topics too. Oh well, all my good vibe energies are coming from the one main thing ATM so that is what I seem to want to celebrate in diary form whether it be in my fitness journal or digi scrapbooking pages.

Based on CSI's case file 223 and sketch, I wanted a fun page inspired by the word "outside" in the testimony, as all my training sessions with my group are outside as apposed to the competition which is mainly indoors.

How I solved the case: Sketch - yes,  Testimony: put your story in speech bubble/s, inspirational words : friendship & outdsite, Evidence: stripes, speech bubble, ribbon, something curly or loopy, transparent stuff, distressing, fabric.

Loving February 2017

I haven't posted for a while. I thought I would do a digi scrapbooking page on my fitness progress, because I'm still motoring along and it's getting better and better (who would have thought?). I used the lovely CSI no 222 as my inspiration
