Scallop Squares

Iv'e made these for a swap using Kaleidoscope DSP and the Polka dot ribbon as my inspiration. The design startted from a family friend's daughter who was babysitting and punched some scallop squares of images from an old catalogue and arranged them in the 4 grid pattern. Lilly copied and I cased hers a few differnt ways and here they are. It has been done a bit differently in an older post also. For the sentiments I either stamped from the Best yet or For Everything sets or rubbed on Chit Chat rub-ons. Card stock is Real Red, Tempting Turquoise,Yo-Yo Yellow Pink Passion and Elegant Eggplant. Oh, and a pearl from the Pretties Set.

View through the red door

I wanted to show the red door. See, Real Red and Old Olive my favourite colours! You can't see in the photos but the architraves etc are finished in gold, it looks really good. The walls, Lilly says are Very Vanilla and Whisper White ceilings.

Sultana retrieval

The sultana came out today, fully plump, by way of a siblings finger. I don't think he could have breathed through that nostril!! Disgusting really but that is life sometimes! Sorry, no photo!

Hall of Fame

My Aunty and Uncle came for a visit with their Great Grandson.
This was from a day at the Mining Hall of fame, Museum. Goldpanning and relaxing. I love when they visit.

Performance after dinner

Tonight we had their version of Cinderella followed by a dance performance with a musical telling of how to eat healthy and keep hydrated. Meanwhile one little one has a sultana up his nose. I'll find the pic with the finger!!
I also found some card pics.Lil's is the happy birthday, I think it is really well done.

This one is with vellum punched with the wide oval punch. The edges are made by punching from cardstock with the wide oval and large oval punches then coating in Dazzling Diamonds.

scrap room before and after

This is the space in the shed that has been converted

Not the best pic but I found this on my camers so must post it since now is not a good time to take a new photo and I know someone is wanting to see how the room turned out. Gary did a great job!
