A few new bits and pieces....

Just a few new bits to start off the week.....

Things have been chaotic at work the last few months, so my scrap time is extremely rare with the long crazy and extremely tiring hours I have been doing! The countdown is on to our overseas holiday as well, so things are more chaotic than ever at home as well!

On a sad note, my husband's beloved grandfather passed away last week. A last minute trip to Melbourne for the funeral saw us taking a huge road trip of almost 2,000km round trip in 3 days and we are backing up to do it again for a family wedding this weekend.... thankfully we booked flights for the wedding months ago as I don't think we could handle the drive again two weeks in a row! It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day in Melbourne and the service was lovely. It was good to see such a large turn out. The family was touched by a young lady who was extremely emotional and no one seemed to know who she was.... asking around we found out that she worked at the club that Gramps frequented and usually saw him daily and built up a friendship. It was lovely that she came along and paid her respects, she was obviously close to him and his passing had such a huge impact on her.

On a brighter note, I have been able to get the following pieces of work done recently.

In "Family is Forever", I have used a WOW journal tag frame, which I have inked and the WOW Floer branch which I have inked and "blinged" up! I've added red rhinestones to give it some colour and more of a finish than just inking.

And some close ups of the details....
With "Moments", I have inked up all the WOW chippie and then finished off the Keyhole and Frame with a spray of Glimmermist and then Dimensional Magic/Glossy Accents for a shiny finish. With the Photo Corner Flourish, I have inked in a few coats of white ink and then added Dimensional Magic/Glossy Accents for a shiny coat on top. With the Moments title, I have given it a light spray of Glimmermist for a subtle effect.

Just a few close ups to show the details...

With "Family" I have inked the WOW Family title in a light brown suede colour and given it a shimmery lift with a light spray of pearl Glimmermist and a shiny coat of Glossy Accents. Close up for the effect detail....

Phew.... made it just as my laptop battery is about to die! Have a great week and don't forget to keep checking out the WOW Facebook page and the WOW Blog for more great WOW ideas and work from the rest of the talented DT.
