using PIKNIK

I am not an editing person but am trying my best to learn and tweak little things to improve pics -- dabbled on colors on 2nd photo and gave us a little highlight (disguise the wrinkles hahaha!)..
Can you tell the difference.. duno if my computer is calibrated to show its real colors...

Jacinta's christening pictures

I made this layout to be cake topper -- simple and a mad rush to finish - will use it for her album. I made lollipop flowers with sizzix daisy diecuts (20 plus centerpieces) and made frame fridge magnets for souvineers (80pcs)

A proud moment...

I am loving the way I create now because I just feel so free and feel so excited each time I scrap. Is it the Sydney air?
Is it the idea of 'no holds barred scrapping' -- duno what ever it is -- its working.
I seem to be in the ' imagining in my head - planning the page - choosing photo and paper' mojo and so here is one layout that I exceptionally love..........
(Guys, you gotta be ready -- this pictorial was done by Jeff Lopez last year and gosh -- you have to stop me doing layouts on this photographs because - gosh my children was just absolutely gorgeous - I owe you big time JEFF for really bringing the best out of my kids!)

Title: Sweet moments
Materials: Pattern papers: Rouge De Garance, MOD Design, Fancy pants, Urban Lily. Embellishements: Craft Express rubons, Cosmo Cricket chipboard title, Blings, Darice Foam

This is a simple layout for Jorel who posed well at a Scrapbooking event I went to in Sydney. It was those booths promoting photography and I was just so happy with his shot. He is just the cutest.. mind you his haircut was from Oct. good thing he it still looked good. I revived my MM page pebbles to have it appear embossed.. not bad for a little old embellishment! I got this ribbon strip idea from MM master Iris Uy, ty dear !
