le cake

This is my first attempt at a Merly Impressions Challenge. I found a whole set of Kaiser Pink Gelato in my stash and managed to use quite a lot of it including one of the stamps and some rub-ons. I started by creating the background using some texture paste and a dotty stencil which I added glitter whilst it was still wet. When it was dry I used the same stencil and randomly moved it whilst misting with some Heidi Swapp sprays.

On the weekend of 25-26 Oct I have challenged myself to walk 60km and to raise $2000 for This is a huge challenge for me as I have never done anything like this before and asking people for money as I go about my fundraising efforts sits right outside my comfort zone. The White with 1 (marshmellow colour) suits this event perfectly.


This is my gorgeous grandson Tom. The page has been inspired by this month's Stuck sketch.The embossed cogs are from Scrapmats. The chipboard blobs have been embossed and while they were still hot I added some Sage coloured  Stampendous Frantage Fragments. I have just started experimenting with some new mediums and am really enjoying the challenge.


This is my entry for the October Scrap the Girls challenge.  Papers are Kaisercraft and for the background I have used a mask with some textured paste, the flourishes have been stamped and embossed. The photos are of my two gorgeous great nieces wishing Mumma (my Mum) a Happy 90th Birthday - July 2013.

Here is a close-up. Can you see the delicate netting?

After attending the my2angels retreat late September I have got my act together, cleaned out and sorted my scraproom and am seriously back scrapping. I find that submitting a challenge is a good way to get going so here is my attempt at this month's Scrap the Boys October challenge which required us to show our domesticated boys. Here is Ian preparing sushi.
