Hi fellow scrapbookers...
I'm back to share a layout I recently did using some AWESOME
2Crafty chippy!!

This title definately hits home at the moment - 'Happiness Starts With You'...

Here are the chippy pieces I used to create this layout:

Line Words - Happiness
Sqaure Collage Panel

I began with cutting the sqaure collage panel up into a few
different pieces first & then glued them onto my layout.
I then put a messy coat of gesso over the top, before I began colouring
my background with paint splats - so much fun!!!

Once my paint splats had dried, I put torn pieces of washi tape over my chipboard.
I then ran my layout thru my sewing machine - 
YES you can sew over your chipboard!!! P.S. just go slowly though ;)

I kept the 'Happiness' line word raw, as I wanted it to still be different &
stand out from the bright colours of the background.

I hope I've inspired you to pull out some 2Crafty chippy & get messy!!

 Hey there scrappy peeps!!!
I'm sharing the layout I have created for 2Crafty Chipboard. 
I have also used some Flutterby Designs goodies on here as well ;)
'Happy To Break Free'
This layout was a bit different to my usual style (at the moment),
whereby I actually used ONLY patterned paper - instead of white
cardstock LOL. I love how the chipboard pieces easily layer & create
different focal points. 

I have used the Flutterby 'Words of Wisdom' stencil & some plain
texture paste on the background & added a flair button
& page tab as embellishments.

2Crafty products used are:
Doily Border
Happy - loopy font
Scrabble Tiles
ATC Hearts & Stars

Here's some close ups :)

I painted the 'happy' title with gesso & then used a posca pen to doodle
over the top.

With the scrabble tiles, I have left them bare except for the actual letter.
Which I have coloured in with a white posca pen.

  With the doily border, I cut it in half & painted it with acrylic paint.
Once that was dried, I added dot details with a white posca pen.
I painted the small heart in the same colour & glued in the middle
of the camera image.

Camp Mojo Retreat 2014
Hunter Valley NSW
I am a bit slow at blogging this, but better late than never ROFL.
This was the second Mojo retreat I had attended. It is solely about
scrapping with my favourite peeps for me! Here's some highlights:

Silly me can up with the 'brilliant idea' to make Holi powder so we could do
our own 'No Run Colour Run'! We had a blast!!!! So much fun - I can't wait to see
the rest of the photos. The fabulous Jen Hall took these photos!

Aparently we offended a few people for not including them - 
this was organised amongst friends as a creative photoshoot & was never going to
be for everyone...

 A 6ft table all to yourself - you can't complain ;)

Here's a couple of layouts I did (there wasn't many LOL - I talked too much)
'Adorable You'
The awesome Eb van der Starre made
this one for me!!
I did 2 classes while I was there. This is the layout I did
in Ebony van der Starre's class...
'Today & Everyday'
This one was even left of my comfort zone - but I had a
blast!!! This was Lisa Oxley's class.
'Be Bold'
