Found out on... Wednesday evening (I think it was) that Tim Holtz' new limited edition Seasonal Distress Inks for Spring are shipping NOW! Excited! :)

Love these colours!Tim Holtz has a great video on his blog showing them off. My favourite? I really don't know. I REALLY love all three shades. However I'm sure I will be using the "Peacock Feathers" most. Despite it being a really pretty yellow and a really pretty lilac, I know these are colours that I would not use as often as teal.

And you know what else is sooooo great? Well the picture above is kinda giving it away (if you didn't know already!)... they are bringing out re-inkers for them too! So re-inkers for the Spring Limited Edition set (yay!), but also re-inkers for the Winter Limited Edition set (double yay!) and the Fall Limited Edition set (triple yay!)

Ordered mine straight away and can't wait for them to arrive :)

Beach Waves...

Okay this is fun... Blogger has totally changed and this is the first time I'm using the updated version. It looks VERY different. I guess it will take a little while to get used to it... but I think I will like it in the end :) Let's try and add a photo...

Yay it worked! :) This layout was made with some new kits from the Lilypad. Making it really, really makes me long for summer. The weather has been especially rainy and dark the last few days so seeing some beach photos (and looking through lots more while picking these) made me so happy :)

Right, let's see if I can get this post published too...! :)

Oh yuck... the weather continues to be terrible. Just darkness and rain. For days now. Hoping for some sunshine soon. And in the meantime I will scrap some summer flowers :)

I don't normally scrap with much yellow, but this paper (the background paper) just spoke to me straight away and by turning it around it was perfect for the type of page design I was going for.

I love the spring/summer colours of the Lilypad kits that I chose to work with. Truly colours that make me smile :) The layout is part of my assignments for my Lilypad Creative Team work this month.

Wow this must be my longest blogger break ever! Last week was... well... yuck! Spent in bed exhausted. The less talked about it the better. But let's just say that I'm not a fan of throwing up. Enough said!

To be honest I don't even feel 100% yet... but okay to feel stressed enough that I really have to deal with my to-do list (which has been growing and growing for over a week - aaaah!) today. Stressy! Headache is already coming on...bleugh!

I never even got my Easter cards on my blog before I got ill. Oh well... Here they are... a bit after Easter LOL! Sorry for the terrible lighting and shadows in these photos. The weather outside was soooo bad this day and it was impossible to even get a half decent photo taken. So that's all I have as the cards have of course arrived at their destinations a long time ago.

Lots of fun Copic colouring together with some Stickles glitter on the cards...

Easter Scrapping...

[Supplies: Chelsea Market - Amy Wolff, Jot It Down 3 - Amy Wolff, Something Good Alpha - Jenn Barrette, Something Good Misc - Jenn Barrette, Mod Garlands & Borders - Jenna Desai,
Egg Hunting - Kate Hadfield (all from The Lilypad)]

I've had some Easter fun scrapping Easter pages with Easter kits. Can't really get much more Easter-y, can it? ... if there indeed is such a word..?!?

This Friday was the launch of the BYOC kits at the Lilypad. The massive monthly release of coordinating kits. Best day of the month at the Lilypad :)

All the kits that I used to scrap with, apart from Kate's "Egg Hunting", were from the new BYOC releases. I picked Kate's older Easter kit to go with the rest because I just love her doodles and can never resist them, especially for holidays :)

Baers Garten Designs...

I've been playing with the new Baers Garten Designs kit. Looove all the ledger type products! :)

Today is a bit of a special day for BGD. Iara has decided to leave Scrapbook Graphics and open her very own shop instead. Today is the first day of the new shop being open, so please pop over and visit Baers Garten Designs :) The shop looks great!
