A2Z Scraplets June Challenge

" A family that plays together stays together." 
"When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses."Hi everyone! Thankyou for calling in.....perfect timing too as it is time for the A2Z Scraplets June challenge. We are doing something different again this month and hope you enjoy it as much as we did. We would love to see your layouts about your family's favourite weekend/holiday past time. What do you do together that you all enjoy, is fun-filled with much laughter and smiles and creates very sweet, happy memories that you treasure? For example, maybe you are a sporty family or one that enjoys camping or bushwalking, going to the beach, what about boating, caravanning, bike riding, visiting a Theme Park/ park /museum or maybe just relaxing at home, having a BBQ and spending time in the pool and so on. 

Here is my example for the challenge. My family unfortunately has never had a true tradition or holiday destination so I focused on family gatherings that I miss very much. Be sure to head on over to and enter for your chance to win 1 of 3 A2Z Scraplets Chipboard packs!!!

I have created this layout using the fabulous My Minds Eye Collection "A Bright Side" along with some fabulous Prima Wood Embellishments.

Checkout the doodling! I just adore dooling and it really helps seperate each of these busy patterned papers well.

The A2Z Scraplets Chippy that I have used for this layout is Theme Set - Family 1 which you can view on the A2Z website here. I have kept the Family Chippie title to use on another layout as it was a little too elegant for these fun photos. I think the theme sets from A2Z Scraplets are some of my faves cause they are such good value for money! To decorate the chipboard I have coated a layer of Bronze Metallic Crackle Paint and then sprayed with some Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Spray Stains. The Spray colours I have used are Black Orchid Silver & Copper Cattail Brown.

Gotta love those final details! Checkout the twirling and whirling twine from the Twinery. This is the Cappucino Brown Bakers Twine and can be purchased here

Thanks so much for looking and be sure to head on over to the A2Z Scraplets Blog and join in this fabulous challenge! The possibilities are endless for this challenge and the prizes are AMAZING! Everyone can do with some free chippy!

Until next time...happy scrapping!
