Orange Paperie June - Close up's

Hello Folks

June brings us a new challenge for Orange Paperie and this time it's me that thought of the challenge.

Pop over and check it out if you haven't seen it already.

It's Tic Tac Toe

The elements I have played with are twine, cogs and embossing
and here is my layout

(till there was you)

Followed by some close up's

My title could reflect me talking about my nephews or the boys talking about each other, either way I really miss these boys and love being an aunty to such cuties.

To compliment the cogs on the pattern papers I added a chippie cog the the corner to balance the page.

Some tabs either side of the photo to add another layer.

And the twine added a touch of texture.

Hope you liked the close up's.
As it's the 5th of June 2014 and the Orange Paperie challenge is released today,
I would like to say a huge Happy 3rd Birthday to my youngest nephew Nathaniel!

Thanks for stopping by.

Delish family! Scrap Around the World May Challenge

Hi, my name is Bec Timms.
From Orange, NSW, Australia
and this is my first entry for Scrap Around the World.
It's Scrap Around the World's first birthday and the May challenge and inspiration comes from a beautifully bright mood board.
And I had to join in...
This is my brother with his boys enjoying the delights of France...
(including some ice-cream dribbles) 
Here are some close ups

I have use colourful PP's, buttons and bakers twine to compliment the photos
Bright washi tape, brads and a flair from Studio Fourteen40

I thought the challenge from SATW was Delish so had to join in

The mood board was full of colour and celebration so I have focused on the celebration of sweet delights that my family experienced on their holiday in France!
(Hope you like the added link to the mood board of macaroons)

I had a lot of fun with this layout and it came together so easily.
Thank you for stopping by!
Love Bec

Orange Paperie DT announcement and May's Challenge

Good afternoon from a crisp but sunny Orange.

The wonderful news this May is that I have been invited to be on the Design Team for Orange Paperie, which a group of very talented people that I very much admire.

I have scrapped with these folks several times and the talent they all exude is absolutely limitless, so to say that I am proud to be listed with them on the Orange Paperie blog is an understatement.  I am thrilled and so excited to work alongside some awesome scrappers.

May's Challenge @ Orange Paperie

A beautiful picture and quote for inspiration provided by Kim.

My layout from the inspiration.

I have focused on the elements from the picture, like lace, buttons, jute twine, a window frame and washi tape.  I used these in my layout rather than using the colours.  I have layered the elements under my photo, using the chippie frame to place around the photo.

I had a fab time putting together this layout and absolutely love the quote which suits any rainy day photo.

Next month it is my turn to set the challenge and I have a fabulous GD lined up, absolutely love her work and look forward to seeing what she comes up with.

A massive thank you to the Orange Paperie girls for inviting me and John to join the team!

Thanks for popping in

Love Bec

Orange Paperie January 2014

Good day people
I am popping in for a quick entry for the January Orange Paperie challenge.
Friendship and Journaling are the criteria for this layout, set by Annette.
So here is my layout... attempting this challenge!
 It is a layout using plum and aubergine, a sewn edge, and some handmade flowers.
I haven't got any close up's because I am doing a quick upload to meet the deadline.

And I have commented that I am very lucky to have discovered 3 beautiful friends.
