I Dream Of Sleepy Babys

As promised the third project I have been working on, using the Q Tea Roller Derby Doll kit
For this I used some scrap corrugated cardboard
I ripped up the VERY cute napkin and glued the blank parts onto the cardboard
I then painted these with the blue paint
I then glued on the picture part of the napkin
Cut off the 2 from the number sheet and used the sequin mesh as a mask and sprayed this with some Maya Road mist
I then added the lettering
Outlined the 2 and some of the chair with a white pen
Ran lace ribbon, from the kit, around the border, sticking it down with some Washi tape


I made it for my nieces, for when they move into their home

Yesterday it was hot and VERY humid
So the girls and I went outside to have some fun while I squirted them with the hose
and while their dresses got dry


we had some fun with the camera


and I have to say I really like my photos :)

I like them A LOT!

Yep I like them A LOT!!
Last night, while Dave was at soccer training, I scrapped this quick page


In my recent Recycle shop purchases were a few lace doilies
I have been so inspired by the doilies Jodie makes and made my own
Cut up the doilies and placed some in some of the Maya Road mists, they have a more vibrant colour than the Glimmer Mist


The flower middle is just some ripped tissue paper
The lettering is from Smiggle

Today we visited some friends before going to get the girls swine flu vaccines
The younger 3 have to go back for their second shot in 4 weeks and I’m hoping Lucy is umm quieter next time lol

In other, exciting, news the Such Sweet Tierney Design Team has been announced and London added me for a second term, YAY
I am grateful for the opportunity and am excited to be picked again
There is another Aussie in the mix this time so that’s exciting too :)

Karen asked me how I get my photos so big
Well I have been using Windows Live Writer for a while now, love how easy it is to write posts in, much easier than blogger
You can download it for free and it allows you to post to multiple blogs and keeps a history of your posts
I can alter the size of photos in that and I change them so that the width is 650 which is about the space left between my blog margins
That way, I think, it looks neat between the list on the right and the blank margin on the left.
Hope that helps Karen :) If anyone has any other questions, feel free to ask and I will try my best to answer them :)
