"Some Days" by Nadia Cannizzo
This is a picture of my 2 girls and I and about the hard days as a mum of 2 little girls.
It is not always easy!
-I used the lace trim that came in the kit, together with torn pieces of paper to overlap them and create an interesting background with gesso. This adds texture and depth.
-The Want2Scrap chipboard alphabet that came in the main kit, was left bare and inked with brown ink as it gives I quite liked the colour and it matched the papers
-The flowers were also inked to create a uniform look.
-I dabbed gesso on the Want2Scrap birdcage Charlie's Birdcage to blend it in with the other colours.

Cheep Trims: white appliques
Shimmerz: Blueberry Cobbler

This is a layout about my eldest daughter and her oldest cousin. She is so lucky to have her, because she is a really good girl and looks after her really well. Maria, responds to her so nicely and they just get along and give me a bit of a break especially we we go out ! LOL!
The next set of layouts was created using the following Sketch
featuring Want2Scrap's
Want@Scrap's Charlie's Birdhouse
* I inked the chipboard cage with the Prima
* The flowers were inked with the Smimmerz ink from the main kit to blend them in together.
* I doubled up the banner from the 7Dots Stickers in the add on, with a banner paper punch from my stash.

This is Kevin when we went to Los Angelos a while ago. The one thing you can always count on with Kevin is the 'thumb's up' sign - he's been doing it since he was a teenager and I'm so glad that he continues using this action; no matter how hard his life is.
"SING" by Valerie Serfozo
I wanted to try out a new lens recently and focused on this little bird that looks like he's singing. I decided to base the colors on the layout based on the little bit of orange in his feathers. The white Teresa Collins flower was a little larger than I wanted, so I used Beverly's tip to remove a few layers. I zapped it with my heat gun, which made it easy to remove some of the bottom layers. I also made the Manor House orange flower smaller by removing the bottom two layers. I painted the birdhouse using some gold paint.

"SUZANNE" by Fi Kenward
I used a photo of my mum, not sure how old she was and tried to pull the yellow colour from the papers by using the Theresa Collins packing. I sanded off the printed contents and thought it worked it beautifully with the page. I also spritzed the applique with glimmer mist to blend. The bird cage was an awesome accent to work with but I didn't want to lose it by cover my photo with it so I opted to use it this way instead.
