Simple layout with Fancy Frames

I started to do a layout here, but part way through, decided to leave it simple and put it in a black box frame. I have used a little of my Melissa Francis papers, from Scottie Crafts, to cut out 2 frames from the Cricut Cartridge, Fancy Frames. This cartridge has so many cool frames on it!! I have put Glossy Accents on the smaller middle frame and layered it over the larger fancy frame. At the top is one of Tim Holtz cool Franciful Buttons.

This layout is now in the black box frame, but I had to take it out to photograph because of the glass reflection.
So simple, so quick and a great wall piece!
Actually I am thinking it is time to get some good frames and put up a gallery. I have a really good space to do one...it is just getting around to it!! ( I think I need A Round Tuit! LOL!)

Challenge me happy #3

Challenge Me Happy has a great sketch this fortnight. Check it out here!
I wanted to scrap this gorgeous photo of these lovely girls at Katie's engagement party. Four of them have virtually grown up together and Kate , Aimee and Kim were bridesmaids for Emma and now it is Kate's time. So exciting for them all! They have all grown into such gorgeous young ladies!!
Emma gave me this fab Basic Grey paper and I have used my new Fancy Frames cartridge, from Scottie Crafts, again. The frames on it are so cool! Gotta love that huge Glitz Designs rhinestone inside the organza flower too!  Some misting here and the frame is sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist, also

Three Generations

Em was shocked last week when I showed her these photos of three wedding bouquets...hers, mine and my mothers (her Nana). The style that all three of us chose was so similar it was a wee bit uncanny!
I have some lovely Melissa Frances paper and embellishments in my Scottie Crafts kit this month, which were perfect for combining old photos with new.
The frame is cut from one of the new Cricut Carts in stock at Scotties, Fancy Frames. I painted it with Tattered Rose Distress crackle paint and then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls mist, which gives a light shimmer look. The leaves are a Martha Stewart punch.

Class at Scotties

Next Thursday I am using this layout for a class at Scottie Crafts.The gorgeous soft papers are Melissa Frances. The background has been made using a Crafter's Workshop stencil and, of course, there are lots of Martha Stewart and EK punches that are fun to play with.
We will be making the organza flowers and Karen showed me this flower butterfly she had seen somewhere and I thought it was to cute not to share! Perfect for a soft baby layout.
Have a great weekend everyone x

Couple of quick cards

The challenge over at Southern Girls this fortnight is 'Happy Birthday'! Here are a couple of quick birthday cards that I have made for family over the last month.
Hope everyone is warm and cosy during this cold snap! I have the fire going and not really looking forward to venturing outside later!

The power of red

Challenge Me Happy has a great colour challenge this fortnight! I have been wanting to scrap this photo from my lounge window, of a sunset after 2 days of storms. The colours in the sky were amazing! It looked wild and beautiful at the same time.
I meet with a lovely group of girls once a month to scrap and share. This month Elspeth challenged us to do a layout using this quote about the power of red! My time is pushed at the moment so it has been a rushed LO and one that I may revisit!
Now, back to packing kits for my group of gorgeous kids at Wainui School.
Cheers, Sue x
