So I'm so pleased that the gold thickers of the April Counterfeit Kit Challenge inspiration kit, "Messy Kit" reminded me of this love. And a bit of gold ink might have found it's way to some edges, as well. . .
After I'd made a couple of pages with my April kit, I decided I needed to focus on the black-and-white papers that I had included, and, with a bit of help from my February kit, ended up with 11 "starter page kits" scattered on my floor.
I didn't really think I'd get very far with those page kits, but a day off work during The Big Storm gave me some extra time. (Mind you I did have a whole title ready to emboss before I realised it's a bit hard to use a heat gun with no power!)
I gave myself until the end of this weekend to finish as many as I could and I'm pretty pleased with how much I got done . . .
A little story about a giant pizza . . .
Our family loved the second of "The Voice" Australia. If you haven't seen Harrison Craig's blind audition, it's totally worth a look. Maddy and I went to see him when he came to our local Westfield . . .
Loving the pink, gold and black/white stripe combo on this page . . . .
Working the green frame paper as a patterned paper as well as an embellishment . . .
After I scrapped this page about Rohan's presentation day last year we both realised there wasn't actually much to say . . .
I'm loving those vellum hearts, and the bright colours on this page of Maddy painting a rock on the Port Macquarie breakwall . . .
Rohan took some awesome photos of my niece and nephew with my brand new DSLR. I love scrapping these guys, and not just because of the "you've scrapbooked my children more than I have" comments I get from my sister (check the comments below to see if she's been!)
Just a coffee break at our local shopping centre, but an Instagram competition (which I never entered) encouraged me to take this cute picture . . .
Terrible photos but a memory I wanted to record . . .
It never would have occurred to me to put gold on a teenage boy page, but I'm loving how it looks . . .
There's two page kits left which I've set aside for now, mostly to see if there might be some other photos to include.
Thanks for stopping by. . . I hope you've had some crafty time this weekend, too!
