I Love This Place

I love this place - Cape Hillsborough - just the most perfect place to go for lunch, and I nice quiet relax time......Just beautiful..."sigh"

Connor adores it too - he has a ball playing in the crystal clear - and I mean clear - water, and combing the beach for shell. Of course, being near the reef, we also have to watch out for nasties like stingers and cone shells.....

What is your favourite "take a breather" spot???
This is one of my favourite layouts - I just love the blues and the purples in this Bo Bunney range. I did this layout for my sample for the Scrap the Boys December Challenge.
The challege isChristmas related:
Is Your Boy a Grinch or an Angel???

Here is a close up - I had heaps of fun with glimmermist and a brayer - I used Cranberry Zing, Sea Glass and Silver on the snowflakes, and I pretty well layered Marsmallow on the layers of paper as I went - I even added some to the photo (hehe)

Sadly, this will be the final Scrap the Boys :0( I am VERY sad about this. I adore this challenge site, and have felt very privaliged to be part of the creative team - such a talented bunch of ladies...... Good luck, Susan, and thank you for providing such an inspirational challenge blog.

Yes it's very sad about STB, Niq :(
Love your sample LO - it is just stunning! so much work has gone into it. Excuse my ignorance, Niq...but you've lost me on a Brayer & Marshmallow? - please explain!

Your photos of Cape Hillsborough look magical - lots of good scrapping in them there pics!!!

A Brayer is a rubber roller (you remember when lino printing was all the rage? Well it's a lino roller.....) and it is used to blend things like Alcohol Ink and Glimmermist on the paper, Marshmallow is just a colour of Glimmermist - it gives a slvery white shimmer to your projects;0)
