LAYOUT: so fancy


I am stopping by with a layout I put together for Shimmerz, using my favorite shimmerz, Aqua Huez.

Products used: Aqua Huez Rockin Robin, Hottie pink, crazy daisy, Blue me away and Green with envy 

I wanted to document the bond with my daughter already. Most of the time its convientent for me to be behind the camera, instead of in front. But I am becoming more aware and more confident with self timer. 
Luckily, I have a benefit and that is that Missy Moo does not mind one bit a thousand and one photos just to get one good one. 

I wanted my page to be bright, fun  and cheery. Just like her. 
First up I add gesso and some masking tape for some texture and a surface to use my Aqua Huez on. I then used a stencil and very wet brush and layed my Aqua Huez on. I left the stencil there to dry for a very l o n g time. It allowed the Aqua Huez to seep underneath and leave this amazing pattern. 

Doesn't it look amazing!
A few detail shots of the layout. 

Can you see why I love Aqua Huez.
Whats your favorite?

PROJECT LIFE: #the100dayproject - EDITION 11

Hey there!

To make #the100dayproject work for me, I've had a stash of supplies in a tray.
I print out a bunch of photos that I want in the kids albums and just choose what photo or journaling I want to do that day.

I guess the key to make this work for me, is organisation.
Some days I literally have 10 minutes to do a project life card.
That gives the kids ample of time to trash the house and show some rather affection and not so affection love to each other! tee hee 
I've learnt with a photo printed and supplies at hand, 10 minutes is ample of time.
with plenty of referring of the kids from mother. multi tasking, right? 
I can't believe this month ends the 100 day project!
Time flies when your having fun!

DIY: Wrapping gifts with Shimmerz


I just love the Pickpocket Stakz from Shimmerz.
Not just for the relaxation and colouring- in.
Ok, maybe that's two reasons,
they make something like complete.

On Saturday afternoon I grab out my Aqua Huez.
StakzAqua Huez + Saturday = perfect.

Products used: Aqua Huez - crazy Daisy, Red hot, Little boy blue, inter-Black-tic, Rockin Robin (my fav), Green with Envy and Hottie Pink 

I then had a little gift wrapping to do.
Wrote on the back of the stakz and pop it on top.

PROJECT LIFE: #the100dayproject - EDITION 10

Its crazy to think, that what feels like yesterday,
I was at number 20 in the #the100dayproject,
and now I am less than 20 project life cards to 100.

Doing a card each day for just over 3 months,
brings me joy,
a smile,
a giggle.

If i didnt set out to tackle the kids albums and get them upto date,
they could very well be still sitting there with only dust all over them and not touched.

Oh, I am glad I said 'I can do this' for this challenge.

PROJECT LIFE: #the100dayproject - EDITION 9

Good Morning!

Sometimes going to school means, procrastination.
Stopping the Alarm from beeping, which tells us to go to the bus, in hope that Mum didn't hear and we miss the bus and simply cant go to school.
Good try boys! 
But then there so many FUN reasons to go to school. 
To see that school really is a good place to be.
These project life cards show the fun at school.

Good Afternoon!

We are in the midst of school holidays.
There a lot of caos,
a lot of fun,
with Lego spread all through the house, even to the veranda,
and the odd colouring pencil under the dining table.

I sat,
just for 20 mins.
Kept my mind off the boys jumping from the tree to the  trampoline.
*heart skips a beat*
I made some cute tags.
