Birds of a feather


 I am so incredibly lucky to live where I do and just recently there has been so many birds around my home,which is in the middle of suburbia but surrounded by lots of trees, so the camera has been getting a bit of a workout. Hope you enjoy looking at the following pics as much as I enjoyed taking them.






 Thanks for looking, hugs and love

Latest Challenge at Orange Paperie and Co

Just recently I posted an amazing challenge at http://orangepaperieandco.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/september-challenge.html and while it is truly amazing it is also a lot of fun. I created a recipe and then had to scrap a page for it, I don't tend to think these things through carefully sometimes, basically just go that sounds like a great idea, let's do that and then it's ooh now I have to do it. The end result was a page I really love, gorgeous pic of my three cheeky nephews and lots of fun embellies from the Boys only Embellie kit at my2angels http://www.my2angels.net/p/7551/Boys-ONLY-Embellishment-Kit.html. The products and colours were just perfect and really made the page come alive.

The recipe is

1 black and white pic
ribbon
chippy/s
inking
distressing
and a two word title 
 
and here is my page
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I used an old copy of Tom Sawyer for the banner and behind the pic, while the pages were oldish looking a bit of glimmer mist and some distress ink helped to age it a bit more.
 
 
So I hope that you will come and join us and have a go at my challenge, as you can see it really is quite easy and a lot of fun.
Hugs and love till then

It's been a while

Yes I know, my bad, have let my blog fall by the wayside again, but I am back and would love to share this page that I completed recently for the September Challenge at my2angels.
http://www.my2angels.net/s/88/Monthly-Challenge.html
The brief was to use Black, White and one other colour with the majority of the products used to be from my2angels. Easy as I totally love and adore the embellie kits that Tracy has created and have purchased quite a few of them in the past. All the embellies on this page are from the first ever kit (excluding the washi tape and butterflies) I bought and which were absolutely perfect for this pic.

The alphas were part of the kit and I used some dimensional magic, which I purchased from the shop to add a bit of shine to them.
Loved how this page turned out, first time I have played with hexagonals and am really pleased with the effect.
Anyway that's it for now, will be back soon to share some more pages, until then, hugs and love Annette xo
