Something old-new-borrowed-blue

Monday, August 13, 2012

No I'm not getting married again! I was just being silly and this was the first title that sprang to my mind. Now I guess I'm going to have to explain how it got there.

- Something old: Me - the scrapper
- Something new: Teresa Collins (A first for me!)
- Something borrowed: That would be the duck!
- Something blue: The Greatest View ribbon, buttons and bags!

I'm seriously loving yellow at the moment which is the reason why I was so taken with the 'Every Day Moments' collection from Teresa Collins. One of those 'have to have' shopping sprees! So glad I did because the quality is superb, nothing beats that crisp sound when you cut into good quality paper.

I just had to create a layout using these photos of Teddy who managed to get some quality time with his big brother's prized posession 'ducky'. It was more slobbering and chewing than actual playing but he enjoyed it immensely. Ducky needed to be given a quick wash and tumble dry before his rightful owner returned home from school.

I used my stash of Greatest View embellishments and was really thrilled that each colour matched in perfectly with the Teresa Collins collection. Gail had even given me a selection of Greatest View chevron ribbon in perfect hues.

Now I do have another 'new' product to add to the collection. Panpastels... thanks to my dear friend Marg who rated these as 'the best things ever'. I am now the proud owner of a whole pile of lovely little pots of pastel paints in yummy colours. So I broke into the grey and re-coloured the little petite doily, another Greatest View staple.

  1. How do you do it? I have this paper & can hardly make it work...& you just whip it up into something gorgeous. Not jealous ---hah! Anyways, it's lovely ...sigh....just going back to my clunking unrefined LO I'm in the middle of to try & make it look slightly more better:):):)
    Oh, BTW, those circles in the middle are FAB:):)

  2. I just love EVERYTHING about this!!!! The colors, the patters, the circles...EVERYTHING

  3. Ahhhh, siblings cuddle toys are the best! We had a similar story just 2 weeks ago (DS is 7 months now). I agree that the yellow and blue is a divine combination (they were also my wedding colors). Fabulous layout, love your sweet details and your handwriting is beautiful

  4. My favourite colour combo for a baby boy and oh so adorable.

  5. Beautiful! I LOVE this and all the circles, well done!

  6. This is really beautiful. Congrats on the TC blog post too..x

  7. I would love to know how you managed to get such perfect circles in the middle of a page, without a die cut machine (I don't have a machine that can die cut files either!) Cheers!

    1. Sarah I use a little handheld compass cutter, it takes a bit of trial and error to get them completely round, so sometimes the circles end up a bit bigger than I'd planned because I've had to re-do them. :)
