3 more layouts

Although pretty hot here today I managed to get the January sketch for Handmade by Suzanne done. For these very colourful photos of DD and her acrobatics class dressed up for their concert I used Bo Bunny Sunkissed and a couple of buttons from Purple Pumpkin.



This is a layout I did last weekend for the CC at Scrapboutique using a sketch. Used Bella Boulevard All Inclusive.



Finally, my take on the January sketch over at Anna's Craft Cupboard. This is one of my favourite photos I took of DS last year, just before Chrstmas and a few days after his 14th birthday. I have used some Rosa Moka Mec pps.

Rest of Scrapbook Top 50 Jan CC entries

Here are my other layouts for the other 3 challenges at Scrapbook Top50.

For this first challenge the criteria was to use some lyrics from the Pink song 'Raise your glass' on your layout. I used 'Why so serious'. Other criteria was to use bright colours, doodling and a mixed alpha title. I used pp from Sass Lass Countdown and added some Chip Chop Shop clouds and sun, Jenni Bowlin butterflies, Sass flowers and some ribbon.

For Anthea's challenge we had to scrap a layout about a celebration that took place in 2010, include something red and use more than one photo. I decided on a simple layout and managed to use up some old scrapping goodies, which is always good.

For Sue's challenge we had to scrap a birthday, include meaningful journaling and a party type embellishment and at least one button. I decided to do my sons 6th birthday for which we have absolutely no photos. It's the only one we don't have any for, so I was able to make the journalling the feature. Used some bits and bobs from Scenic Route Surprize pp.

Show us your stuff Jan No. 2 challenge

I said I'd found my mojo and this is my second layout for the day! I'd had these photos sitting on my desk for a while ready to scrap and when I saw the new SUYS challenge I felt inspired to scrap them. The criteria for the second January challenge was to use 4 or more pp (I've used 3 from Kaisercraft Konstruck, 1 from WRMK and my background pp is from Scenic Route), misting (I've misted the background pp), include stitching (I handstitched the trail from the top helicopter and stitched on the buttons), include buttons and a handmade object (I used 3 cloud buttons from the Chip Chop Shop).

Some more graduation layouts

I think I've got my scrapping mojo back. It always seems to come back once I start scrapping again - it's just the starting that's the problem.

Here are 2 layouts both based on photos of DD's graduation from primary school back in December and both using Bo Bunny Winter Joy pp, which matched the dress perfectly.

The first is for the January 123 challenge which was to use purple, punches and the word Beautiful.


The second is for the Scrapbook Top 50 January Celebration CC which is on at the moment. Vicki's challenge was to use either punches or paint for P, arrows or acetate for A, rhinestones or ribbon for R, tape or tab for T and yellow or the word 'You' in the title for Y.

Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch Jan #1

Here is my take on the Kaisercraft Saturday Sketch January #1 using the Seaside collection. I wasn't too sure about this collection at first but it has grown on me and was perfect for these shots of DS buried in the sand at Queenscliffe over Christmas.

Show us your stuff Jan No.1 challenge

Here is my take on the first Jan challenge over at Show us your stuff
It is based on the sketch provided by Michelle Fowler and includes a organza ribbon handmade flower made by Chris Wormald.

Rest of my December layouts

I seem to have lost my scrapping mojo at the moment. Maybe it's because DH has been at home and we have been concentrating on some renovations. We rebuilt our kitchen cupboard and redid the decking at the front of the house.

This first layout was for the recent CC at Scrapbook Savvy. The criteria was to include: 12 photos (one for each month) to represent 2010 at a glance; include chipboard, ribbon or string and buttons.


The second layout was for the Dec sketch at Handmade by Suzanne. I used some WRMK Vintage Blue pp.


Thirdly, another layout for Scrapbook Savvy for the ABC challenge which was the letter P. Extra criteria was pleating and paint. This is my DD dressed up for her ballet concert.


This one was for the Dec sketch challenge at Anna's Craft Cupboard. DS was lucky that the scout breakup party was on his 14th birthday so he got to go roller skating.
Finally, one for the Dec sketch at Scrapbook Savvy. Another cat layout. This time DD is dressed up for Halloween.
