Last post for awhile

Just to let you all know that I will be taking a break for a week maybe longer. We are in the process of moving house, so will be back when we are settled into our new home.

July Creative Goals

This month is going to be super hectic with having to move houses so I won't be setting any creative goals. My time is going to be spent packing, cleaning and unpacking the majority of the time.
I am hoping that maybe some nights I can get a bit of work done on Sophie's Universe blanket, but will see how I go.

Good luck with all your creative goals this month!

Jot Mood Board - June

I take my hat of to the  ladies that create the Jot Mood Board every month, they have been amazing! I love seeing what they come up with.
Whilst I loved the mood board this month I did struggle a little with how to create a scrapbook layout based on it. I decided in the end to do a couple of cards instead, one taking the watermelon and colours as inspiration and the other using the pelican as my inspiration.

I don't think these cards did the mood board much justice, but I like them and I think my nieces might too!
I am also thinking of using the mood board each month to inspire me to make more cards and keep my stash full.

Live Action Role Play

Live Action Role Play or LARP for short, a way for adults and older teens to be kids all over again ? I must admit that before Jayden started with LARP I did have preconceived ideas about what it involved.
When he first mentioned he wanted to join (and being under18 needed our signatures) I had those "why would you want to do that" thoughts.

Jay spent weeks getting his ideas and making his own costume, turns out he can sew better than me ha! It turns out that (in this particular group) its a great way for my non sporty son to get out there and get some exercise but doing something he enjoys.

Anything that has them out in the fresh air and not stuck behind a screen all the time as well as being a fun activity they enjoy is good in my books.

Making cards for the boys

What is it with male cards, I never get motivated to have a heap of them made ready for birthdays like I do with female cards. I have more males in my family than I do females so you would think id be on top of it.
A couple of weekends ago I decided to remedy this problem - I was in need of two birthday cards for the following week - and had a marathon session of card making just for the boys.

Checking out pinterest for some inspiration and pulling out all of my scraps in colours suitable for boys I got started. Really pleased with the outcome I  managed to get a whole heap done and ready for all those birthdays I have in the last half of the year.

Today I'm sharing my teal themed cards. It was all about shapes, I am a bit over stars so got a little creative with diamonds and hexagons and think they look pretty cool.
I have some dad themed cards and some for the younger guys in my life coming up over the next few weeks.

Scrap the Boys - Crazy for Cars

Had a ton of fun playing along with Scrap the Boys again this month. They supplied an awesome sketch for us to get inspired by.
As with last month the paints and stamps got plenty of use, this time mixing it up with some colour and rubons. Such cute photos of my nephew from a few years ago when he came to visit.

Be sure to go and check out the challenges every month, you can find them here.
