Memory Jar

Hello, hope you are having a great week so far. Today Im sharing with you my Memory Jar I created as one of my projects for Scrapmatts this month.
Last month the family and I went to Bundaberg for a holiday. The boys loved going to the beach everyday and they loved looking for shells and rocks. They picked a couple to take home with them and I used some in this Jar (along with some sand they collected too) as I thought it would be a great way to display them...and a great excuse to use some cool Scrapmatts pieces.
(apologies for the is very hard to photograph a jar that reflects all teh time hehehe)

Memory Jar

and some close ups....

I wanted the focus of this memory jar to be the photo and the little shells the boys found so not to take that away with papers and frills I used some washi tape from D*lish Scraps behind the 'happy memories' chipboard pieces.

I love the Sea stars that Scrapmatts have, they are so cute.
I also used a tiny glass bottle to write a little 'message' of where and when we were in Bundaberg.

To tie the washi tape in I also used it around the top of the lid for the jar, and then underneath used some small rope I found in my stash as it gave a nautical feel to the Jar. I also used the 'Paradise Found' Tag and anchor from Scrapmatts to go with the theme also.

The Scrapmatts Chipboard I used for the memory Jar are...
Scrapwords 02 CB 1190
Shells 02 CB 6062
Nautical Designs 02 CB 6065
Scrap Words 12  CB 1209

Huge Catch Up from April...

WOW I cant believe I missed April, mind you I did have a lot of things happening.
My family and I went away on a camping trip to Bundaburg and had a wonderful time and I was able to snap some fantastic photos of the boys at the beach (soon to be scrapped!)
While I was away I was unable to upload anything on blogger so thought i would do this post as a quick catch up!

First up was the Sketch Challenge layout I created for my DT work for Mad About Scrappin...

pull the tag and this is what you'll find....

a little close up of my cluster.

This layout was also created for Mad About Scrappin as my product Spotlight...
If you go to my post for Mad about Scrapping 'HERE' you will also find a step by step on how to create this awesome background!

And here is a close up...

This layout here was created for Scrap the Boys.
We had to create a layout using flowers. I decided to create this layout with LOTS of colour!

And finally my 2 items I created for my Scrapmatts blog post.

This is a shadow box I decorated that is apart of the Scrapmatts collection.
The cute little bunny image also come from Scrapmatts in teh 'papertole' section. They have a wonderful range of images to choose from and they look perfect in these shadow box frames.

below is a side view of the shadow box.

 And this cute little tag was created to go alongside my other tags I am creating as part of a challenge that was set to the DT to create a different tag every month.
