Last month on the WOW  (Words or Whatever) Facebook page, everyone was invited to send an SAE and receive some 'free' chipboard to take part in WOW's April Triple Treat, and I just couldn't wait to 'have a go' at the 'challenge' and this is my take :) 
 Here is a quick summary of how I created the LO using some of Scrapping Outback's beautiful, new range of Webster's Papers named 'Beautiful Chic" as well as their range of WOW:
  • Using the 12x12-Moroccan-ALTA137 to mask, I sprayed the Lindy’s Stamp Gang “Mission Bells Brown” Starburst (close where the photo goes, and just lightly round the edges)
  • I tore approximately 2cm from the top and bottom edges, then lightly sprayed water around all 4 edges, distressing heavily and inked with Pinecone Ink and left to dry

  • I cut 3x 2.5cm strips of patterned paper, lightly distressed and inked them. I adhered 2 to the top and bottom where I had torn (above).
  • I used my EK Success punch and placed the 3rd piece approximately 9cm up from the bottom on top of some (stash) sacking; and made a few dark brown and aqua spats for interest

  • I then embossed all the chippies and threaded the punched paper (and c/b hearts) with the same sacking twine
  •  I then placed and adhered the photo - taken at Rainbow's End, Sept 2010 - along with the "messy camera" chippie, flowers and butterflies.
Supplies used:
Tattered Angels glimmer mist (Crème De Chocolat)
HEY!!! the prizes include one for the MOST LIKES on pleeeeease go this THIS LINK (;Cvk9qAOhYCas~-.bps.a.894278083950264.1073741832.109373842440696/903808042997268/?type=1&theater ) and "like" my Layout!!! Thanks so much in advance.

me at 3 - BELIEVE in U

Mazz at 3

Hi everyone, since I finished my DT work early for Scrapping Outback, I decided to have a go at the Lindy’s Stamp Gang (LSG) March Color challenge, for the first time!

Since LSG’s palette coordinates so well with the beautiful Blue Fern Studios Ombre Dreams papers, I decided to have a go at the Blue Fern Studios March Sketch challenge as well J

Inspiration to scrap this photo of myself on my new ‘birthday’ bike age 3yo – came from the children in Lindy’s photo of the children enjoying their ‘birthday’ party.  I've also added 3 words down the bottom right of my LO - These 3 words mean a lot at tie moment, as I'm getting back into job hunting after 12 months 'sabbatical'.


Supplies used:

Blue Fern Studios Chipboard; flower pin by

Monte Mart Gesso & Modelling Paste

Words or Whatever (WOW) stencil

Tim Holtz idea-ology Chitchat sticker

hand made flower by 

Prima Marketing alphas (title)

aqua flowers hand made by

Hand made flowers

Florist wire

Thanks ever so much for popping over today - I've had so much fun creating this. Thanks so much to Lindy's Stamp Gang and Blue Fern Studios and their Design Teams for this wonderful challenge.

Till next week - oh yes, April is next week - yikes - hugs 'n' hearts xxx Mazz xxx

I love to make people smile...I have a passion for people, especially children, from 'diverse' and multi-cultural backgrounds hence my love of travel and sharing different beliefs and cultures as well. so...

YOU too can become a BUTTERFLY

My fairy

Your fairy is called Columbine Goblinglitter
She is a bringer of riches and wealth.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen in the light of a shooting star.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has gentle green wings like a butterfly.
