November & December 2013 Colours of Nature Challenge

November & December 2013 Colours of Nature Challenge - 

3 or 4 smaller photos is required which is Family orientated.... Those family who you would like to have around over the Christmas Celebration Time.

Sorry about the missing of October and the delay in November, so have made it for December as well.  We moved mid October with 2 huge trucks which took 3 days to load to travel from Biloela to Gympie, then to unload and unpack... Such a big task and I am not moving again... 
This is where my hubby and I will retire and remain....

So here is a Colourful Picture which would be lovely to make up to share with friends and family over our special season of Christmas.  Looking forward to your interpretations and inspirations from this wonderful picture.  Makes me hungry just looking at it....

Please remember the list at the beginning of the blog to include in your pages.

New Beginnings from Brenda Caldow @

Oh yer and i have used the following
Red rose

This photo was taken not that long after my husband and I 
started going out together. That was some time back now.

I have done this layout for the Njoyfull Craft Challenges.
Narelle has some wonderful and super fun challenges on her
blog. If you get a chance pop on over and take a look.
I have also entered it into the challenge at Once Upon a Sketch
They have some beautiful sketches and there design team do
some truly beautiful layouts.

There is nothing anyone can say about Manor House flowers 
except truly beautiful. They look stunning with anything on
any layout. With this beautiful red rose is a bow from Prima
and the tag and cameo are Kaiser Craft.

Yes you guessed it, more beautiful Manor house flowers. The 
bird is Kaiser craft and I cut it out. The stamped date tag is 
Kaiser Craft and the bow Prima.

I just love this cherub from Kaiser Craft. I placed it on card 
stock and cut around it so as to make it match in better with the 
layout. The lace was given to me by an old friend from her 
sawing stash. Again this stamp is from Kaiser Craft. The hearts
are from the Jenni B heart collection. The leaves in the pictures 
are from  Vivaldi, clock is Craftworks and the letter Cre8tiv.
The roses in the top corner are from Kaiser Craft and the pearls 
are from Scraptopia.


I especially love the Wide Lace, The White Hearts and the placement of the Clock with the little Birdie flying into it, and of course that lovely Flower range.


Another participate is  Judy Wright with her page which can be seen at her blog spot here -

Our Wedding Day

I love this photo of Craig and I. But I guess I love all the photo's
of our Wedding Day.

I have placed a red rose and hearts


The products I have used are..... Card stock red and white. Spotlight
ribbon, Scraptopia stamps, Archival pigment ink, Fiskars punch, 
Quick cutz die, Craft works scrap booking bling, Large single rose
