Donna O'leary ~March DT Share

Hello and welcome to Memory Maze.  Today I am sharing 4 projects with you.  The first project is for our theme this month, Circuses, Rides, Carnivals, Parties or shows.  In New Zealand we don't get to see many circuses or carnivals.  So today I am going to share a special day I had with some of my kids and one of my best friends.

For this double layout I have used a number of memory maze chipboard pieces  to help  tell my story.

It was a time to celebrate.  It was my birthday and what made it extra special was that my son had come down from the North Island.  My daughter and best friend decided they would treat me to a yummy lunch.

My Son William and two of my wonderful daughters,  I left the chipboard banner naked for this part.

For the Arrow I highlighted the Heart with a crayon pencil!  I really did enjoy my Blue Cod and salad.

After lunch we walked across to the park and had a play.  Gosh they are funny bunnies.  I was busy taking photos of the BIG kids full of laughter...  

(For the word Laugh I have coloured with two crayon pencils and blended them to match my other embellishments.  I left the arrow naked.)

 when I heard this little sad "Mummy"  I turn around and look at that face!   So sad!  
I love this photo and I will be using it for her 21st :-)

Flat banner words celebrate 100 x 150sold 3\'s

Arrows assorted 144 x 155mm

I had printed off some photos for a different project and these ones were left over.  I really wanted to use them as I love them.  When I see my kids I see Beauty, so the memory maze word was perfect for this layout.

I embossed the word beauty with a lovely apricot colour Wow Embossing Powder,  its so pretty and matched perfectly.

I found these tiny butterflies which I also added to the layout and embossed them with a glitter embossing powder. This made the layout pop and finished it off just right.

Inky Fun

If you ladies follow my blog , you will know that I LOVE ink.  I was having a play with some new masks and made these cards.  Very easy to create and a great way to use up paper scraps.

I covered the typewriter in black and red Faber-castell gelato and then highlighted with black distress ink. 

For this dress form, (she is so pretty) I embossed with WOW Embossing powders!  I love the way she sparkles on this grunge card!


I hope you enjoyed my share today.  I would love to heard what you think.  Until next time be happy and keep scrappin  xox Donna
