Busy Week !!!!!

The Color Room #57

I was not planning to do last weeks challenge,but once I saw the color palette I could not resist. I already had the Butterfly garden in the must do it was don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today.....I also went for the sketch.....


The photo's are of my Mum and her husband Ian. They had four wonderful years together before the cancer took her. She had a whirl wind of total bliss. Every time they visited my sister in Australia, it was like a second honey moon. Here, they were there for her wedding, my sisters that is. Truly two love birds!

Close up of the Prima roses and the clay leaves I made. You can see some of the cut work. I pinched the cage idea from Gerry van Gent. When she showed me what she had done with the papers....I said then that I was going to use it.....what else would one do with it,but cut it. To me it screamed... cut me... cut me...Interesting how you can do the same thing, but it will look completely different. Check her blog out to see for your self.

In this LO. used Dusty Attic doily#3 DA0481 This time I sewed around a circle of the paper, then attached it. But I did use a little Glimmer Glam on the edges of the doily. Dirty Martini and Golden Goddess



When I saw the sketch, I knew what paper I was going to use....Websters Pages......
Photos are of Nicole, a out with her Mum in Wellington NZ. Hanging out and doing crazy girls stuff like riding cable cars for fun.

For above and below photos, I used Dusty Attic foliage DA0506 and leaves DA0508. I decked them with white gesso then sprayed with glimmer mist. I also used a bit of glimmer glam Dirty Martini (green color) To finish I used Lime green stickles on the tips. What I love the most about these Dusty Attic chippies...they go with every thing. They can be found at Srapdelight. Keep an eye out as they will be getting new stock in shortly! A little birdie told me they are at customs...waiting to be they are on ducth soil!
I used the Quickutz for the alphabet.

Pins are from Maya Road.

Ribbon and netting Websters Pages. To be found at Scrapdelight.

I had a lot of fun doing this LO. I hope you have enjoyed taking a squiz at the close ups.

Love Susan oxoxoxo
