March Journal Pages

March 31st 2013

Just getting my pages fnished in time for The Kathryn Wheel Challenge - as always I had good intentions of doing these at the beginning of the month but LOL that never happens - maybe I will get April done earlier????

For these pages I used a new set of green Fireworks sprays - I love the colours and metallic shine on them. I sprayed both pages with the lightest green then added some sticky note squares and sprayed with the 2 darker green colours, added some texture with a Tim Holtz stamp in orange and added the numbers to the boxes. I used distress ink dabbed around the edges of the pages and around the days. I couldn't resist the gorgeous bunny image from Gecko Galz for this - very fitting for Easter and I thought the green and orange colour combo worked well.

Happy Easter!

March 31st 2013

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Easter break! Today I am sharing one of my March Gecko Galz projects made specifically for Easter - some little Easter Egg goodie bags using some Avery Labels I found on special at my local stationery store! Image on bag topper is one of the March release Gecko Galz Digital images.

Enjoy your Easter & try not to eat too many chocolate eggs LOL!! Of course I love chocolate so there is no hope for me!!!

Anyone for a Hit of Tennis?

March 30th 2013

A reminder ATC for our "Sporty Girls" Challenge at Wicked Wednesday - we would love to see some more entries!!! My ATC today uses a great tennis player image from Michelle Perkett and the picture behind is an actual picture I took just after I had linemarked these lawn tennis courts (that's what I do for a job for those of you who don't know!!!) I added some die cut grass and tennis racquet charm to finish this off.

Sporty Girls!

March 28th 2013

Our new theme at Wicked Wednesday this week is "Sporty Girls" - what a great theme!! We are sponsored by Kenny K so as usual you have the chance to win some images from them!

March 21st 2013

I am sharing one of my creations for Gecko Galz this month using new Vintage Style Easter Collage images - background images and main "bunny" image are from the new sheets released this month.
