Family LOVE - Scrapping Outback White With a Twist challenge MAY 2016

Family Love
These are the delicious colours of our beverages this month
 ...and sharing another LO I've created for my friend Fiona...I just love this beautiful Prima Papers' "Garden Fable" collection- for the colours, the 'whimsy' feel about it; and naturally the butterflies :) 
You may notice, I've toned down the colours with a light spray of Gesso, because of the business of the paper and so the "whanau" (NZ Maori word meaning family) photo is still the focus of the LO.

I do hope you have a go this month in the Scrapping Outback White With a Twist challenge....such fun colours and what a great prize $15.00 to spend at the SO shop :)

Prima Marketing papers (Garden Fable & birdhouse) and  Color Bloom (boysenberry);

my2angels' (silver) love you to infinity key; other: Krylon gesso spray, Martha Stewart edge punch, Helmar 450 quick dry adhesive, chipboard, muslin, mesh

I've had to 'slow' down just a bit I'm afraid, because I'm finally back at full time work during the week. It's been nearly 3 years since I started the sabbatical, having done a full circle of studying, playing and working with children - and now I'm enjoying being back to the same place of work I was back then - at TAFE Queensland (Brisbane), working with teachers and students :)

till next time everyone,

Hugs 'n' hearts xxx Mazz xxx

Enjoy the little things
Howdy, and welcome to April - Oh my goodness....this year is flying by....and time for YOU to have a go at Scrapping Outback's April White With a Twist challenge's this month's inspiration image:

This photo is of my younger son, just after we arrived in Brisbane in 2002. 
Being extremely frugal after our move, we were looking for cheap and free stuff to do on the weekends.  Luckily we came across this nature park at Queens Park in Ipswich, that has a gold coin entry fee. It was great to see the “Ozzie” birds and animals, and of course that brainless scarecrow was fun too.

I love to spend time at home in my scrap space and out on our balcony looking towards the glorious Australian bush...I am an obsessive compulsive scrapbooker and scrapbooking products, which I love to share. I also ADORE working with children, love card-making, stamping, collect turtles (not real ones!) postage stamps and postcards,

Cooking, Entertaining, Eating Out, Photography, Listening To Music, Latin American dance, Rock And Roll, watching Movies with Ian. 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...

And find your shoulder to light on,

To bring you luck, happiness and riches

Turtles (for my collection)

butterfly kisses

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.
