color combo 93

Well i decided to do the color challenge on the color challenge blog.My friend Belinda is on the design team there so i thought i would go out of my comfort zone and give it ago.Excuse the crooked picture after four goes i though I'm not taking another one lol.And also a couple of close ups too.

The picture was taken by Belinda on one of my trips that i have been to visit her and her family.I changed the pic into black and white as it was easier to match the colours too.Mikayla and i have taken a couple of road trips together this year This is not any colours that i would usually use so I'm pleased with the outcome what do you think?

A close up The purple flower was inspired by Steph i seen that she had done some similar on the Aussie scrap source blog.I punched the Crete paper with my circle punches then inked them to the color i wanted.Thanks Steph for a great idea just something different i think.

The other close up from this layout.

And of course this layout i did the other week for the swv cyber crop we had this as a challenge the dt.I have actually changed it to what i did the first time round One of the challenges was to put a mini book on the layout i wasn't happy with what that looked like so i have have changed that part of the layout.I one the challenge lol.
You had to make a mini book scrap at least one triangle use the colour yellow.I had that all covered.

Here is the original i have got the mini book sitting on my cupboard now.Well that me for another few days have a great week take care Kerry xx

a busy few days

I thought that i would take a few pictures of Lachlan and Mikayla who said taking pictures of children was easy.I came out in a sweat taking these shots.I ended up taking about 90 shots and i think there were quite a few bloopers.He just fitted in this little suit case.

And of Course princess Mikayla as we call her.

She adores her nephew.

He is just starting to give little smiles. Playing with the ball at Marcies,we are lucky that Marcie takes pictures of what she does threw the day while she is getting looked after.

And Lachlan was very tired after all his pics.We have been so busy over the last few days.I managed to scrap these layouts on Friday morning while catching up with the latest Mcleods daughters i down loaded from the net.We had a wedding yesterday.Carla and Travis looked after Mikayla for us .We got a phone call about 5.30 pm to say that Mikayla was vomiting and had done so at least 10 times poor little mite.After regular phone calls to Travis she was okay and sitting watching dvds.She is fine today so i think it was a 24 hour bug.Well i am starting a new job tomorrow.Hopefully this will end up being a permanent position at least i know at this stage its a three month contract.Anyway have a great week and a nice long weekend too.

A fair bit to share

First of all i bought a lot of prima products lately one to do this book shown and the other to use on some layouts i really am stoked how they both turned out.Also on this layout i have used a journal ling spot down the bottom right hand corner from i won some journal ling spots from Yvette they are so cute you can go to her blog and
she has an etsy store that you can click on and buy her journal ling spots.Thanks again Yvette.

My build a book from prima i think the hardest thing was to photograph it lol.It does look very very pretty irl.You really cant get a good look on the net.

And of course what is a post without the beautiful little man Lachlan he is now 5 weeks old and going great guns keeping his mum and dad up at times.But mostly sleeping and drinking.Carly is going to bring him over tomorrow so we can have a bit of fun and take some pictures of him.Hopefully we get some okay shots.
