Hi Everyone!

I have been ridiculously busy lately so I haven't been around here as much as I would have liked but I did manage to create a couple of things with my AWESOME stash of 2 Crafty goodness.

There are many scrappers out there who regularly take the time to scrap photos of themselves, which I think is fantastic - but unfortunately I am not one of them. The truth is I hate photos of myself! But I recently came accross a photo of me with my fiance at Kings Park WA taken last year and thought it definitely needed scrapping!

I have used the 2 Crafty piece "Ariel's Spray" which I have painted using three colours of acrylic paint, just dabbed on with a stippling action to give texture to the piece. I then added the 2 Crafty Folk Hearts over the top, and in the centre of the photo. The little ATC Georgian Frames are then used to finish off the embellishments ... actually I cut one in half and tucked each half under other embellishments for a clustered effect.

My next project is a little card. I love to make cards, it's a quick project I can start and finish in one go. 2 Crafty chipboard makes excellent embellishments for cards, something a little different to stamped images. So with a little help from my Cuttlebug, a Martha Stewart Punch and the 2 Crafty Sybill Name Plates I came up with this .....

The name plate is simply painted with acrylic paint and then I added Rub n Buff metallic wax to the swirly bits. I like it ... I hope you do to!

Happy crafting
