Moments of Beauty

This layout is for my Bubbly Scrumptious friday blog post. I have kept it fairly simple and actually used white space for once!! Shock horror!

I am such a good girl I even added a hidden journalling tag...which is something I haven't done for about 2 years. To find out how I altered the flowers and the techniques used to make this page click HERE and read all about it.

Did you know that something new is added to the blog everyday and all with instructions included....just like having your own daily paper only free!!

Do you remember I said I would tell you about SUE. Sue was the owner of the craft shop that got me into this trouble!!!
Well I have been back to take her classes on techniques after over a years absence and trust me nothing changes!!! My lovely Wednesday friends are all still as gorgeous as ever some are even slimmer than before thanks to our in-house Slimming World know who you are!
Anyway this week we made cards using the serendipity technique.
Sues examples were stunning and creative so please don't go by mine. I loved that we ripped up the paper doilies to add to the mixture of papers and then blended in twinkling H2O's to give the paper co-hesion.
From our paper we then cut small tiles and built up on them to add dimension and layers. To visit Sues blog please click HERE.
I think I'll send mine to my Mum for her birthday because I only ever make cards in a class!! So it's not like I have a spare stash of them.

and finally Sue has also tagged me grrrrr. The challenge is to take a photograph of yourself immediately after reading you have been tagged. ie: no make-up, no time to comb your hair, pj's as I had Ben climbing on me like a human frame I just clicked away until I had managed to get both of us in the frame. Look at the remnants of the previous days make-up!! Well it was about 8am on Mothers Day.

So I am going to play along and choose some victims!!
Terri who is a fabulous Aussie scrapper trying to deal with a hectic life and lots of hospital appointments so I am sure you will take a great messy photo.!!
Toni whose pages are immaculate yet busy but I can't imagine Toni having a hair out of place.
Helena my sister in-law who rarely turns the camera on herself.
and Carol who loves altering boxes and birdhouse too.
Sorry guys:)
ps: i'd just like to say thankyou for leaving me lovely comments especially about the Easter Eggs the reponse has been wonderful and it's such a great feeling to know that your work is appreciated. I am so grateful that strangers believe in me.
Love and mascara bags
