More challenge layouts

This month I seem to have been inspired by the challenges over at I haven't felt really inclined to scrap any other challenges. I think it's because they have been product challenges and it has made me use up items that have just been sitting in my stash. Also I'm a bit disillusioned, having won a number of challenges and never received the prizes.
Two weeks ago the challenges were all base on brads. This first layout was for the Scrap Write Now challenge which was to feature brads and journalling in dot points. I used Echo Park and some MME pp here and some new washi tape that I purchased from Dlish Scraps. They have a great range and fantastic prices.

This second layout was for Aga's sketch challenge again incorporating some brads. I've used Crate Paper pps and embellies here and a heap of brads.

This third layout was for the Scrap It Blind challenge for the week using rub ons.

 This layout was for the Base Jump rubon challenge. This is where you are given a base and can add any extras.

Last weeks challenges all featured flowers. I don't use flowers as much as I used too so have enjoyed doing some really girly pages. This first one was for the Scrap it Blind challenge and I have used the new Kaisercraft Tiger Lily pps. I love this colour combo. I managed to use 28 flowers on this layout. The brown flowers are made up of 4 paper flowers stuck together and scrunched up to look like rose buds.

Another girly layout. This time for the Base Jump challenge. I have used Kaisercraft Miss Nellie for this one.
  This was for the Scrap Write Now challenge which was to include a quote as the title. My quote rather took over the page and didn't leave me much room for flowers. I managed to add a few to the base of the sign and to DD's hair in the photo.
  The final layout for today is for the Scrap a Rainbow challenge which was to use the colours - pink, red, aqua and green and to of course include flowers. This was my Basic Grey layout for the month. I have used Olivia pps and stickers and some BG pipecleaner flowers. I also used a 3 Bugs in a Rug banner and Purple Pumpkin button.

Well done if you got to the end of all these layouts. Should try and update more often!

Some weekly challenges

I've been playing along with some of the weekly challenges at Last week was all about using rub ons.
This first layout was for Fetch a Sketch based on a sketch by Sheree. I finally broke into my October Afternoon Sidewalks pp. I used some rubons undet the clusters and rub on lady bugs and for one word in the title.

This second layout was also for the rubon challenges but was for Scrap a Rainbow. The colours were brown, green, red and yellow. I managed to use up quite a few rubons here.

Finally, this is from the previous week which featured tape in the challenges. This was for Sheree's Scrap it Blind. I used some Hambly washi woodgrain washi tape.

Rest of February layouts

Thought I better get the rest of my February layouts uploaded as March is now upon us. I managed to get 18 layouts done this month.

This first layout was for the manufacturer challenge over at Scrapbook Savvy which was to use Crate Paper and include a heart on the layout. It's another Queensland holiday layout! I used Crate Paper's Random range for this.

It's been a while since I managed to get any of the Challenge Heaven  challenges done but I managed 2 this month. This first one was for Becci's challenge which was to scrap about an accident or where somebody was hurt and include stitching on the layout. This is DS when he was 16 months on our holiday in the UK. He fell over and got a stone lodged in his eyebrow. Thankfully he didn't need stitches but it did leave a scar. I have used Echo Park Playground for this layout.

 This layout was for Donna's quote challenge which was to include a quote about sibling relationships. I got to use some Paper Inklings rubons that were just perfect for this. The patterned paper is from Sassafras Lass.

This next one was for the cybercrop over at Scrapbooking Top50. The challenge was to have a word as the title and include a dictionary definition on the page.
 Finally, another page I did for one of the weekly challenges over at This was Fetch a Sketch challenge and you had to include paint on your layout. I used some more Basic Grey on this one.

More Bella Boulevard challenges

Just a quick post with 3 more layouts for the current challenges over at Bella Boulevard.
This is a layout for Challenge 2 which was to use patterned paper from 4 or more collections. I have used paper from : Too Cute to Spook, Swing into Spring, Family Dynamics, Hello Sunshine, Hello Beautiful and Spring Flings and Easter Things!

 This layout was for Challenge 4 to use border strips. I have used some strips from Spring Flings and Easter Things.

This layout is for Challenge 3 which was to use patterned paper as embellishments. I cut some flowers out of Party Girl from the range and made a banner out of them. I also used them for a cluster.
