Eggceptionally Cute


Tee hee....did you get a giggle out of those eggs? All Jeromel's artwork. He has been drawing on eggs for a while now....usually only one or two eggs....but since I started buying trays of eggs, he keeps asking to draw on the eggs...so I let him. The first time, I wasn't quick enough to take photos. So this time I let him unleash his creativity on the eggs and made sure to take a pic to scrap. This is a layout for an Arty Pants challenge. Arty Pants will be getting a new website very soon and a new shop too!!!! But for the time being, the forum is open...it's fairly quiet at the moment, but it will start hotting up soon!!! Check it out here

Have I done other scrapping? Yes....some altered things....

Firstly an altered canvas. Owen is Joseph's cousin and he came over the other day asking me to make a canvas for Fiona's birthday. He handed me a small pile of photos and gave me oh....24 hours to create something. I like it...it's happy and bright...and most importantly....Owen scored some major brownie points......Fiona loves it heaps!!

Next, some altered items for the new baby in our family. My cousin and his wife are the proud parents to their first born....a baby girl named Anna. We still have not seen Anna yet, but I've made these for her. A Keepsake wooden box with a photo frame top. Had to dress it up with Scenic Route....sooo cheerful.....I'm into bright pink and orange and green atm......those colours make me sooo happy!!! The other items next to it is by Creative Imaginations...it is called a Gift Card holder. The inside has a slot....you can slide a photo in through the top...and the photo sits behind a plastic sheet. And the top of the plastic sheet is actually recessed a bit...so you can sit a gift card on top of it. I got this from OPAAT in the last kit and need to get more...they're great when you want to give a gift card but feel that it can be presented a bit better. I just got my new OPAAT kit and it's Love Elsie..............sooo yummy!!! It will be launched in a few days time...so if you want some Love Elsie....go order!!!

Lastly....look what arrived in my mailbox!!! Not my emailbox....my real life mailbox!!! How yummy are these We are Memory Keepers eyelets & snaps????? As soon as I saw them on Fireside Crafts I had to have them!!! Going to use them this week on a layout or two.....keep an eye out for them!!!
I've done a few other layouts, but will save them for another day........for another post where I am all talk no scrap! LOL

Egg-citing! But seriously, love the eggs. I've tried by my manual dexterity is minimal so I find it hard to work on itty bitty things like eggs.
