This layout uses different colours for me, but still one of my favourtie combinations, what I like about teal and red, is that it is ok for masculine pages,with out losing a feminine colour like red and pink. These are my three children and every time I photograph them I wonder what will they be in the future, they are good at so many things that they have a whole range of things they could grow up to be. The two youngest are black belts in Tae Kwon Do and the oldest is training now for his, but they all like music and art too and of course technology. This time I have used the rose creations and instead of using a brad to assemble them I am using a bunch of stamens, it can be more fiddly, but I love the look of the tea rose, I have some pages coming up that show off this technique much more. So keep an eye out. Of course this page uses lots of red velvet glimmer mist and spellbinders, for a list check out Down Under Inspirations on the side.

Today I share this layout of my daughter, here I was experimenting with framing the photo with die cuts to look like lace. I have used the Spellbinders Moroccan Accents,some Dusty Attic chip and tried a looser look for the flowers, so that they look like tea roses. I will be teaching these roses in the coming months at Paper Trenz, I also have a class coming up at Print Blocks on the 27th of July, and the theme is Christmas in July, I am doing a pop up page that is truly unique to me, as I invented it lol. Imagine a tree that you can pull up out of the page, and fold back up again and store away!! I have a heavy workload for the next week or two, to get all my tasks done.

No layout for you this time, I will share all the photos of people I met at the show, As Commissioning Editor of Australian Scrapbook Ideas I met many many people, some who are on our design team and some who are legends in their own scrapbooking right. Perhaps you might recognize Tim Holtz and wonderful Jane Tregenza, but some of the others were Rebecca Beattie, Karen Shadey, Kylie Liston, Jo Baker, Heather Mcmahon, among others. I had a great time, the buzz of the show was Tim and his products, they were everywhere, and the concentration was on mediums, spritzes, glimmer mists, inks, paints and sprays. Of course I did some serious shopping in between working on the stand, and meeting and greeting the royalty of scrapbooking lol.
