August Guset DT

Huge Hello Everyone!

Well it gives me great pleasure to introduce
August Guest DT for Eye Candy Magic

The very talented and extremely Clever

 Hi my name is Melissa and I live in Far north Qld, a hour west of Cairns.I am Mum to two boys aged 12 and nearly 10, so they are my main subjects on my scrappy LO's.Not too many girlie ones get created, but it doesn't stop me from using flowers on some LO's of the boys.
  I have been scrapping since January 2006 and just love the whole process of putting photo to paper and creating something eye-catching for my boys to look at in years to come.They always check out each LO I create and love to read the journal ling attached.
  My favourite companies would have to be My Minds Eye, Simple Stories,Cosmo Cricket, Crate Paper to name a few.Lately though, I have been really into finding any boy embellishments I can get my hands on, which is why I love Sam's CANDY EYE MAGIC sales.I have been inspired by Sam's scrapping style since I first met her online about a year ago.
  Sam very generously sent me some yummy goodies to have a play with and this is what I created...hope you all like.

awww i totally Heart you too!

Not to mention her wonderful DT work @ Challenge blog Scrap Jacked!
Scrap Jacked

Now just to making a little announcement
about my next sale..
18th September!
will be my next eye candy magic sale!

with everything thing going on at once with full time study
I've found myself struggling to find  enough time to
make as much and as many different goodies to inspire
so now my focus is going to be on fimo and fabric buttons with a few different
interesting goodies
but everything will only be made in lots of 4 and 5
so that means limited!

so just a heads up :)

don't fret if you have found my sale page is empty, I've taking down what is left
and will be selling some assorted grab bags 
packed with different goodies :)

So with all that out of the way i can show you a layout i sneaked in between my
homework and house work this Sunday :)

i was really inspired by Handmade by Susan's monthly sketch,
i haven't really had a go at banners but this sketch was really perfect!

using those lovely Bella blvd papers and some eye candy magic :)

So HUGE thank you to Handmade by Susan for giving me the much needed time out and
inspiration to create! totally needed!

Here are a few things I've been creating last weekend with the craft market...

   these were from creative commissions
one lovely darling asked if i could make different birdie colours and how
 about strawberry pins??

I thoroughly enjoyed being challenge!

so now I'm open to creative commissions :)

Well i'm off to enjoy dinner and rest my brain before tomorrows classes :)

Hope you all are having a fantastic week and i will be popping around the blogs to see what you all have been up too ! you clever crafty Bunnies :)

wishing you all loads of Loves and laughter :)
