The British Music Experience @ O2


kit Pink Elegance- Creations by Rachel @ Gotta Pixel
another book for our library...
we got free tickets to the itisj Music Experience @ at O2 Arena through the Mousetrap Foundation and, once again these wonderful people provided an amazing outing. The last time was Peter Pan Royal Gala Premier @ Kensignton Gardens which provided an opportunity to dress up and a marvelous performance, together with a sighting ( very close indeed) of the Royal Family and (to Sarita's excitement) lots of celebrities (including some from across the pond.
That outing was registered in Scrapblog.com, and you can have a look at the slide show of the scraps HERE

This time it provided one of our favorite means of transport, the speedy boats in the Thames.
We took a cab with my Disabled Taxi Card which has saved us in so many outings as I got to a point now in which public transport is a no no 99,9% of the time...
The taxi took us to the Waterloo Pier where we bought discount boat tickets (again, with the Disabilty discount) and, of course, we were shutter happy...so here is my account of the whole thing...



kit On The Way
by Loloden @ Digital Crea Fr


paper from Coline's dream, also by Loloden

here again, kit On The Way
by Loloden @ Digital Crea Fr


elements & alpha a mixture of two kits, Lucky Star & Lucky Charm by Bella Gipsy @ Gotta Pixel

the crowns & Union Jack are from a freebie I got long time ago, the designer is MMDC (couldn't find any more info) the kit is called My English May.


same paper here by Miss Honey
journalings tags and brown stiches came in the Mega Grab Bag Project 365
by Captivated Visions @ Gotta Pixel
paper & English themed embies are, again, from that freebie from MMDC


kit Kids Spirit by Choukette @ Digital Crea



kit I used here is called Grunge Attitude, but is not at the store at the moment. I bought it for 1.50 Euros on the *retiring soon category a while ago... by Celine Designs @ Digital Crea Fr
dymo letters are a freebie from this wonderful lady I discovered through the Yahoo Group Digital Scrapbook Freebie (as most of my freebies lately! , Gunhild Storeide


background paper from Brume de Lune by Dilo @ Digital Crea Fr
other paper cuts & most elements from Pop City by Chouk77 @ Digital Crea Fra
all brown stiches I made myself.
alpha from You've got mail from Pouyou also @ Digital Crea Fr


kit Between the Headlines by Captivated Visions @ Gotta Pixel , this girl is one of the very few British designers around, she is beautifully nice , active in the forums and very talented, of course!


kit Agatha by Isabel Mendez also @ Gotta Pixel
another very nice designer who takes her time to look at your work and praise it...love this kit, I bought elements, papers and add on...great value on their sales, which they have regularly.
the alpha I made in my program, Digital Scrapbook Arist 2 by Serif, which is like a step before PhotoShop Elements...and I'm SO in love with it, I should write a reveiw really....
if you like the Alpha, I made that, the lower case & numbers and a mini kit with metal frames and music sheet papers, write a comment here and let me know you want it and I ll give you the link to the freebie download!



background papers by Chouk77 from a freebie that has as many as 6 or 7 kits from many designers @ Digital Crea Fr,background text by Choukette, the alpha is also from DCF, kit Angels Of Love from Droopette but she is no longer there, I followed her to the new store though, wll be showing shortly.
the rest is all a mixture of different kits but all from DCF, and honestly, these elements are CU sold in there, so they end up in all the kits, impossible to tell who originated them, because, though they do credit the designers'designers....they just mention their names, not who made what....and I better stop here or it wont be nice LOL
photo maks are courtsey of the most beautiful inside and out girl in the net,
CraftyScraps' Michelle, or Wolvsie35 if you know her from ScrapbookMax


background paper again, You've got mail from Pouyou, the frayed grey fabric and dymo alphas by Gunhild Storeide, branches from Digital Crea's freebies.
The doodled frame with the Special Day text I made with one of the program's brushes but, I have to admit, copied it from Kawouette's Day by Day (also Digital Crea Fr)



Mega Grab Bag Project 365
by Captivated Visions & Jessica Edwards @ Gotta Pixel


same as above,(Project 365) only the alpha & numbers are from another kit, Happy Being me
also by Captivated Visions


I recently discovered DigiScrapsDrive In,which has some forums I LOVE and some very talented people , some of the elements are from their freebie daily download, the bird & word art are from a freebie from Ange (designer @ Digital Crea) the background paper is from Love is all we need , SnickerdoodleDesignsByKaren, the one and only!!!! (next post is all dedicated to her :)


everything apart from the lace and white doodle page frame are from Captivated Visions Project 365


alpha City Girl by Bella gipsy @ Gotta Pixel
I made the background stiches, the red frames are from a kit called Little Things but couldn't find the designers name and I'm too tired to look in the dowload folder...same with the big frame, may come back tomorrow to edit...

Ok, so, in this responsable trying to credit all designers, I'm exhausted... easier to scrap than to blog it..... just hope you got the idea of the outing :)
I 'll be back soon!
