Happy Mother's Day
Mother's Day is a such a special day. It is the day that all those maternal bonds are bought out into the open, and we are able to reflect on how important our mothers are (or were) to us. It is a time to share happy memories of times with out Mothers or Grandmothers. It is a time to remember all those loved mothers who are no longer with us.
Wishing all the mothers a very happy Mother's Day!
SO LOVED - created by Leonie
Leonie loves the relationship that her 3 children have with her Mum!
Leonie uses Pink Paislee's Fetching Die Cut papers to create her layout.
ME & MY BOYS - created by Deb
Deb uses KAISERscrapbook's Esther's Guestlist papers, along with KAISERcraft Pearls, Heidi Swapp Invisibles, & Ghost Shapes.
This month the Designers all took on the task to challenge each other. We all had great fun in setting challenges for each other.
Why don't you try some of the challenges that the Designer's took on!
MY COUNTRY KIDS - created by Leonie
Deb challenged Leonie to use the sketch and colour combination to create her layout.
Leonie uses KAISERscrapbook's Reminiscing Papers
CUTE AS A BUTTON - created by Lynlee
Leonie challenge Lynlee to use the colour combination below, but she added in that Lynlee must also use a quote and 3 circles.
Lynlee uses the new Sassafrass Lass and Cosmos Cricket papers available in store now!
SEE HOW THEY FLY - created by Michelle
Julie challenged Michelle to create a double page spread with more than 8 photos, with something clear and some paint
Michelle has used KAISERscrapbook's Rustic Papers, Green Tara Blossoms, Heidi Swapp Clear Embellishments, Making Memories Paint.
BLUR- created by Deb
Michelle challenged Deb to open a file on her computer - and to choose a photo that she wouldn't normally scrap - you know the one you always hit delete on, and to scrap that, in order to show that we don't always have to scrap 'perfect' photos
Deb says this was a perfect challenge, and knew straight away which photo to scrap. Their little dog "Patch" was killed in an accident recently - so this layout was therapeutic. Deb uses KAISERscrapbook's Cafe Culture papers, KAISERcraft Pearls, Heidi Swapp Invisibles Alphabet, Carolee's Creations Alpha Stickers and Green Tara Blossoms.

The SCHOOL BELL RINGS MONDAY MAY 11!
This year, the Designer's thought that they would have a go at creating some sketches for the readers of the blog. So each week we will be posting a new sketch by one of the Designers - and hopefully a layout using the sketch. But that depends on the busy schedule of the Designers - But we promise you there will be a SKETCH each week. So why not jump on over to the BLOG and check out each week's sketch.
