Thursday Treasures! Photo prompt!

This week I had a bit of a rude awakening whilst looking for the perfect photo prompt…

Why the rude awakening? Well I knew I wanted “selfie” to be the prompt for the week but rather than choose a theme I figured there would be a good picture I could use. Now I don’t advise you do this yourselves, but I was stupid enough to type selfie into google images. Now whilst the picture I have picked up is quite innocent … If a little on the cheeky side … There were plenty of not so innocent people pictured in various states of undress. So after a flustered couple of moments I was fortunate that this image was near the top and I could move quickly to the x button!!!

Anyways … A bit of modern culture this week … The selfie … Also known as self portrait by mobile phone held at arms length …. Think Cameron and Obama at Mandela memorial…. But hopefully fully clothed and more respectful!

So I decided on another Disney scrap. I have really been enjoying this recently.

I started with a sketch from this pin on Pinterest. I did make it my own with a little twist to the layout!

Just like some of the others I have shared I used the Simple Stories Say Cheese papers and stickers. So so perfect for any disney pics! I used a mixture of cardstock; Cherry cobbler, More Mustard & Marina Mist.

In terms of stamping, I used some hearts from Hearts a Flutter and that was about it. I did however use the Pennant Punch to create the little bunting out of the paper.

Hope you like what I did with my fun selfie!

Happy crafting!

Thursday Treasures! Prompt time

Afternoon all! Time for a Thursday Treasures post!

This weeks prompt I decided to tackle whilst at Helen’s crop a week or so ago. The great news about that was the ability to play with bits and pieces I don’t own myself and give them a good try out! This is exactly what this layout is full of!

In fact the only thing I used on here that I own would be the Language of Love stamps and of course the paper and inks!

My magic had, of course, to come from Disney and I chose the moment caught on camera by the princess, of the hubby and I re-enacting the kiss in Sleeping Beauty in front of the fabulous stained glass window! Then I filled the page with lots and lots of hearts. Of Helen’s stock I used … Love you More, Hearts a Flutter, Heart to Heart punch and plenty of alpha stamps! I also used Label Love and the coordinating Artisan Label Punch to add the best friend label.

Love how this came out… Oh and I have forgotten to mention the last item of Helen’s that I used … The fabulous Angled Tag punch. Now when I saw these in the catalogue I wasn’t sure … Now I NEED this … So no doubt this will be added to another order soon! Lol!

Layout came from a page I pinned on Pinterest here. I am loving using Pinterest in this way. Makes me think differently about how I scrap pictures and I usually end up making more of an effort as a result!

Happy crafting!
