Sketchy Thursday with Echo Park

This month my kit from Scrapbook Studio included stunning papers from the Echo Park range, Sweet Summertime. These papers have very cool bright colours and designs. For my first LO I have used the sketch from over at Sketchy Thursday!

Sketchy Thursday LO

This is my take on this week's great sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays!
Lloyd and Jodie were over from Sydney for a few days and we decided to do a cruise down the Mahurangi River on the Jane Gifford. We get great views of our home from the river too. We often watch the "Jane", a recently restored huge old river scow, taking trips down the river. She is very impressive!
I used my new nestibilities stamp for the flower! Fun!

A little more Heritage

 Another one of Grandfather's lovely photos of Nana, taken in the early 1920's.

I love this photo of Mum as a child playing nurses. Nana is the patient on a camp stretcher out in the garden. I would love to know if Nana really was unwell and getting some fresh air outside.

Here is my take on this week's challenge over at Sketchy Thursday! A good chance to do a couple of photos of Em and my weekend in Queenstown earlier this month.

Overdue update!

Between doing layouts, I have made a few cards for special people! This first one was for Em's 25th birthday. A friend showed me a box she had made after seeing the idea on You Tube. I knew I had to have a play with this idea and this is my second one! I love how the butterflies dance when you open the box. They are attached with clear acetate and poked through slits in a false bottom.

This one is for my nephew and his wife who have just had a gorgeous baby daughter!

Mike turned 60, 4 days before Em's wedding! I made him a large card that we all wrote in. I feel we neglected him a bit with all the wedding plans. Two parties in one week really was never going to be a happening thing!! I'm sure 70 will come around all too soon!

Over at Scrapbook Studio we are having a handmade flower swap. I have finished my flowers (here) and cant wait to get everyone elses flowers!!
