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'

 'Why fit in when YOU were
born to stand out'
Here's one I created a little while ago. I loved making these!!
Lots of messy fun...


 Giving my Scrappin' karma a boost!!
I made these for a couple of special girls, who inspire me sooo much
I wanted to do something in return! I gave these to them at Camp Mojo & it
was so humbling to see the joy on their faces when I gave them these :)

This one is for my awesome friend, Lauren Hender...
& this one is for another awesome scrappy friend
Ebony van der Starre...

 First share over at 2Crafty Chipboard

So this is exciting - my first share with you all as part of the
2Crafty Chipboard Team. I hope you like it &
I can't wait to keep sharing my creations with you all.

I had a lot of fun creating this layout! I'm very big on circles at
the moment & I put them EVERYWHERE...

'You Rock'
So the chipboard pieces I picked from the range of 2Crafty Chipboard,
where perfect for what I wanted to use on this.
I've used the below pieces:

Circles (6x6 sheet)
Circular Panel
 You - Loopy Font

 With the assorted sized circles from the 6x6 sheet,
I have prepped them first using some gesso. As the chipboard
is quite porous, I needed to seal it before adding my colour.
So it stayed vibrant. I've then used a few different coloured
Faber Castell Gelatos to colour my chipboard.

With the Circular Panel, I've cut a strip off & layered it behind
my photo. I've also put a piece of it at the bottom to give my layout
more focal points of interest. I haven't coloured these pieces at all,
as with all the bright elements on my layout, I wanted a neutral colour as well.

I have painted the You - Loopy Font with gesso.

I hoped I've inspired you to go create something awesome!
I will be back over at the 2Crafty Blog in September with my next share.

Scrap The Boys - July Challenge

Scrap The Boys - July Challenge

I'm a bit slack & forgot to publish this post last month :/
Last month's challenge at Scrap The Boys was 'Big Boy Toys'.
Riley absolutely LOVES to sit on our lap & help drive the car.
***Please note he ever does this on a private driveway on my Dad's property.

Here's my layout:
'Mummy Me Drive?'
Close ups... I've even made a QR code with a little video of him driving :)
