The new “Something Board” is up over at Jot Magazine.

I used the gorgeous Cocoa Daisy paper for my “Something Floral”.

Chevron was created with a stencil and coloured texture paste (blue of course).

The “Something New” were my scribble stamps.
I used a couple of the stamps to create the boarder and one under the pattern paper.

Make sure you check out what the creative team created, inspiring!

Cocoa Daisy – Reveal – September 2014 “Story Time”

I’ve been so excited about the September “Story Time” reveal.
I’ve been waiting to tell you a little secret.
The Main Kit AND the Day In The Life kit contain a stamp set.
These stamps contain some scribble stamps.

Guess who designed the scribbles???
ME!!!
The lovely Arleigh then turned them into stamps.
How cool is that?!
These stamps were also turned into cut files and photoshop brushes!
WOWEE!!!
Now that is amazing!
Now I don’t have photoshop but I have given the stamps and file cuts a workout this month!
Ok so on to what I created this month.
I have not 1, not 2 but 5 (!!) layouts to share with you.
So i’ll shoosh and let your eyes to the talking.

Please note the pink cardstock is from my own stash.
I used a Crafter’s Workshop stencil and some gold Ferro paste to create the background.
So there you go!!
September’s kit(s) are one of my all time favourite kit(s).
So many great products and papers
And don’t get me started on the stamps *wink*!

REVIEW - Nature’s Path

Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Some say breakfast is the hardest meal of the day.
Trying to get kids to eat breakfast can sometimes be a struggle.
During the summer holidays our girls get to choose a box of cereal, known as holiday cereal.
They almost always go for the high in sugar varieties.
So when approached to try out Nature’s Path Organic cereal I was curious
And the girls thought it was a lovely break from their regular cereal.

NaturesPath01

We tried out the Heritage Flakes, Chocolate Koala Crisp and Corn Puffs Gorilla Munch.
They were all delicious and the girls were more than happy to devour them.
Sometimes a “different” cereal can get complaints because it isn’t as sweet or tasty as the “other” brands.
There were no such complaints this time.
Most Nature’s Path products are gluten free and wheat free.
They are always made from wholegrain ingredients, are organic, GMO Free, Kosher and Vegan.
So you know that what is in the box is good for you.
And don’t think it stops there
Because it doesn’t!
The packaging is super good for you too!!
The “kid” products come in a fun box that makes for a great source of brain food.

NaturesPath02

The Chocolate Koala Crisp box was full of great information about koalas, while the Gorilla variety (Corn Puffs)
Has a box full of gorilla facts.

If you are looking for a sugary alternative for breakfast
Then why not look at the Nature’s Path range.
You might be surprised
And you might be in for a treat.

Disclosure: This is not a paid sponsored post.
I received three boxes of “Nature’s Path” cereal for review purposes,
and all opinions expressed are purely my own.
