Circles, Squares, Diamonds, Triangles...............

Get out your compasses and set squares,the next challenge is up at Lets Get Shabby and it's all about Geometric Shapes......they appear to be the "in thing" at the moment,especially the hexagon.
Hop on over to the Lets Get Shabby blog and check out all the details for challenge #34
It was amazing to see how four people in the DT created with 'diamonds' so differently.I'd love to see what you can come up with too; it's a great challenge so I hope you can play along.

My choice of diamonds was an easy choice for me; I love them, and have used them a lot in other projects, but the other thing that influenced me was the diamond pattern on the sleeve of Indi's jumper:......doesn't she look like a little Eskimo.I love the diamond pattern that the buttoning on the chair makes and the beautiful Kaisercraft paper I've used for the background.

paper: Kaisercraft,Charlotte's Dream "Fantasy" and "Daze".

Playing with foil.....

Playing at CSI again. Beautiful colour palette and had the opportunity to drag out the aluminium foil from the kitchen again, it doesn't photograph well but it's fun to use and it's definitely shiny.

Doily cut from aluminium baking foil

Thanks for visiting me today, hope you have a great week of happy creativity. xx

A Boy Page....

I never do 'boy pages'.....probably because I have two daughters. But, I have nephews, and this is Mali, cute as a button and growing up fast. I loved the colours last week from CSI Case File #13 and made a real effort to not let the page get too 'pretty'.

Used the wonderful Graphic45 Le Cirque Collection of papers.... you can have so much fun with them.

I had 4 quotes written on the tags;  my favourite.....  "A boy's best friend is his mother".
Thanks for visiting, and I hope you all have a productive and creative week. xx

My Favourite Colours...........

Beautiful shades of teal and green. These were the colours at CSI last week.

A background of gesso, texture paste, stamps,inks and glimmer mist. Some fussy cut flowers out of paper from Meg's Garden. Other paper used was designed by Michele Singh especially for CSI.

Some pretty Prima Crystal Palace Flowers.

I really try not to use the same photo more than once on a LO, but as my girls get older we aren't  together as often as I'd like,  and photo opportunities become rare, so I apologise for the 'repeats'.
Enjoy what's left of this short week and have a safe and happy Easter. xx
