Up In The Air We Fly

and I like flying
and seeing the sunset


This is the sunset through my plane window coming home from Brisbane via Melbourne
A joy to behold
Dave and I were up in Brisbane for 3 nights, the girls went with Mum and Dad to their shack by the beach.
Dave went to Uni while I amused myself
This time I took some scrap supplies
The weather was meant to be wet and hot
so I thought it would be a nice time to sit and scrap
The rain was minimal but it was humid so it was nice to sit in the cool hotel room
I didn’t do much scrapping and I finished off this page, for the new Kraft It Up challenge, today


The challenge was to use black, blue and orange with a kraft base
So I pulled out the bits of black, blue and orange, from the supplies I had taken away, and was grateful for blue paint in small bottles Smile 


I cut and sprayed this cool scrapmatts bracket with charcoal glimmer mist and added some doodling


oh and don’t you love hotel toiletries, especially when they come in cool cardboard packaging??
The cotton buds, in our hotel bathroom, was in such packaging and I hope to use it on a page soon
But for this page I used some of the cardboard to scrape the paint and also to make some love hearts


I also used the glimmer mist to spray the orange tag


and there you go
another Thursday
and another post here endeth Smile
