Tween mini-album

Hi there, Lynlee here :) Marg has asked me to share a little project that kept me pretty busy last weekend, my DD had one of her best friends birthday parties Saturday night, and we decided to make Emily a mini-album for her present, and as she had been given her first camera from her Mum and Dad, it ended up being perfect for her, and she loved it, thank goodness...lol.
So, the actual mini-album is a Basic Grey milk chocolate eclectic album, which Marg has coming into the shop soon, so keep your eye out, they have some beautiful shapes in the album, and the chipboard is a really great quality. Then, I have used the totally gorgeous Collage Press "Sweet Shoppe"Crafting Kit throughout the album, including the patterned papers and die-cuts. I also used my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities dies to cut some of the photo mounts, and journalling spots. I stamped the journalling spot on the 2nd page with the Pink Persimmon Dutch journal stamp, added lots of inking and white pen, flowers, buttons and even a bit of glitter :) All in all it was quite fun to do, and I loved being able to go a bit mad with the bright colours and pretty things. Thanks for looking. Bye for now.

Another peek...

Nice earthy colours!

It's Tuesday....................

yah, that means time for a new sketch. This week I have designed a sketch for you all to try out.

See what you think:

Lots of opportunity here with this one. You can reverse it and create a double lo, wouldnt that look good? Use flowers instead of stars (I cant draw flowers thats why I used stars, lol). You can even make the whole design larger to do away with the white space if you are not that way inclined.

Whatever you do with it, I would love to see the outcome. Please upload to our Gallery

or at least leve a blog link so I can leave you some lurve :)

I think thats it from me, enjoy your Tuesday, and cant wait to see what you do.

The Barracks

Well thought I would fill you all in on what's been happening with the new shop.

Last week I bought 3 of the original Railway Barracks from Merredin.

They came out to the farm on the back of 2 trucks on Saturday. Was just the worst day to move them, it was soooo windy.

Anyway they are here and with some TLC they will be awesome.....are they cute or what??

These are going to be extra accommodation for our retreats.

If you would like more info on the retreats please leave me a message.
I am going to call them "The Barracks" but am also looking for some names - to do with the Railways or scrapping or both, to call each of the cabins....any suggestions would be appreciated.
