Hooked on Craft ... Challenge 19

Hi there Everyone!! I was going to try and update my blog in between the Hooked on Craft Challenges .. but somehow time has gone so fast!!! This months theme is Easter... which falls at the end of the week!!! I have created a Card and a Easter Egg Holder......

The Card I have used a Magnolia Image .. which I have coloured with my Copic Markers... I used the Warm Greys and a touch of Apricot .... I have used the beautiful Hooked on Craft flowers .. which I have Glimmer Misted then add a little ink and Copper Stickels to get the shade I was after to match my colour scheme. I have also used a Hooked on Craft Doily and gorgeous Charm... always my fav!! I added a little more bling to the Charm using the Copper Stickles , just to compliment my colours I am using! all of the above products I have mentioned are available at so head over and check out the beautiful embellishments... and stamps .. hahah the list goes on and on!!!

Here is a close up for you to look at the layout of my flowers ... and Charm.. I am enjoying using feathers at the moment on my work .. I start with white boring coloured feathers ... glimmers mist .. stickels and they add a lovely addition to your projects...

I have also included a close up of the egg holder.... I love this idea... I saw this in the Magnolia Magazine ... Tweeked it a little... as I do everything... nothing I work on ends up how I think it will at the beginning ! The flowers here have been Glimmer Misted , and Inked and finally Stickled again!! adding a feather also I think ties everything in with my card~!

So it all starts with a image .... Sweet Tilda coloured using my beloved Copic Markers.............

Okay...My favourite Flower and Embellishment Company in the whole wide world has posted they are looking for more design team members ... so nervously I have created this card using their flowers and gems....My goodness I love their products so much .. you can do so many things and have so many looks and themes just by adding colour!! Everyone that comes into Scrap 2 Relax I'm sure has heard the story of me turning red and rashy at seeing Karen's treasures from Hooked on Craft at the Burwood Picture to Page Show.... then pleading with Karen .. " Can we please get these treasures in"??? Well My dream and wish was granted ... and now, I know we have some of our customers as addicted as me!!! So above is my entry or my application into joining the wonderful people at Hooked on Craft as being a member of their design team......

I really enjoyed using the red and white colours... I have been colouring with these with a few images .. Its classic.. What do you think ??? Okay well I'm off to put some more cards together and to listen to my sweet boy read his prep reader!! I love how excited he is in learning to read and write!!! Til Next Time ... Love Michelle xx

Yeah Im back to the land of Copic Markers!!!

We had two very special Birthday Celebrations on the weekend... The first was one of Regan's very Best Friends from Kinder! It was a party in the park .. complete with pinata full of lollies which apparently Regan was very good at!!!! Doesn't surprise me ... if lollies are involved that boy will do anything .... !!! hahahaha I decided to colour the LaLa Image of Cowboy Luca.... I was very pleased with the results . I tried a new combination of reds ... which I was extremely happy with ... What do you think ????

Here is a close up for you to have a look at ... the Paper I used worked really well with my colour scheme!!!!

The second party that we attended was our gorgeous friend Alisha who had a 21st "Mad Hatters" tea party yesterday under the big gum tree at her parents property... Gee it was fantastic a wonderful setting .... a clever idea complete with decorations and costumes!!! This is the card that I came up for Lishy..... I thought it fitted into the theme quite well and included a lovely little charm from one of my favourite suppliers " Hooked on Craft" they have beautiful embellishments that are available through Scrap 2 Relax....

I even painted with Perfect Pearls over the bodice of her dress and it was glimmering in the sunshine when I gave it to our special girl!!!!

This is the last week of holidays for my cupids!! My little man becomes a big prep boy this year... so this week I am going to try and set aside some play time to colour abit more and maybe do a couple of scrap pages!!!! I will be back to show you what I have been up to...I hope you are keeping cool as it is very hot here in Victoria today!!! Till next time Happy Playing!!! Love Michellexxx
