My second post for today and Tim's September's tag has been posted. I haven't managed to keep up with all of them but was determined to have a go at this one straight away. 

It features the faux riveted metal look and as I haven't tried this one before I had to experiment to see how it works. Well I will certainly be using this again, such an amazing look and a clever technique. Check out Tim's tag and tutorial  HERE.

So lovely to be playing and experimenting for a change.

I hope you have a creative Sunday.

PanPastels #34 - All about stripes

This week at PanPastels UK the challenge theme is all about stripes, so make sure you show us your interpretation and remember you do NOT have to use PanPastels to be eligible to enter.

My sample today is rather different for me. Rather than make my own backing paper I have used DP from The Station paper pad by MME and added some PPs to it.

I have also used spellbinders labels 20 and stamps to create the focal piece and sentiment.

I hope you are having a great weekend, but before I go I thought I would share a few more holiday photos with you.

Me and Ella (aged 6) - photo taken by Maddison (aged 4)

Becca, Ella and Maddison

Ben (my son) and Bev and the girls

Pelicans everywhere waiting for the fishing boats to come in.

Couldn't resist the Coke truck!! At the outlet centre - well we had to shop sometime didn't we?

The outlet was very near the Mexican border. 

These two girls just love to play around - that's Maddie (my daughter) in the background.

More photos to come another day - hope you won't get bored with them lol.

Take care.
