Slack blogger

I have been scrapping over the last few weeks but not very much and haven't felt inclined to blog. Anyway thought I better get over that and post a few layouts I've done for the weekly challenges over at

This one was for the Scrap a Rainbow challenge a couple of weeks ago to scrap someone's bucket list. I had been thinking of doing a page on Eleanor's list as she had some quiet interesting items which I thought she'd like to look back on when she's older. These include: buying Do Nut King so that she can have frozen cokes whenever and they won't be on  de frost; going on the Block; going shopping in Paris; Visiting Chile to see penguins; and buying the orthodontists practice house.

This one was based on a sketch by Sheree and had to include exclamation marks in the title. This is a photo of DD just after she'd had her braces taken off.
 Finally, this one was for last weeks sketch again by Sheree and the added criteria was to repeat at least 4 elements. I've repeated my title words, the birds, the photo corners, the vertical strips and the kraft pieces.

Kraft It Up May challenge

I actually did this a couple of weeks ago and have only just got around to uploading it. This if for the May Kraft it Up challenge which was to use Kraft of Course and to scrap about what Easter means to someone. For DD it is all about bunnies as she is Bunny Crazy!! as she has one of her own. I used Jillibean Soup Chicken Dumpling pp for this one.

May 123 challenge

It's a while since I've done a challenge over at 123
but I loved the criteria for this month so thought I'd give it a go. The criteria were to use orange, the word ENJOY (in my journalling), and bakers twine.
This is my page this month using up some of my Basic Grey. Every year we go to Daylesford Botanical Gardens in autumn to take photos of the autumn colours and to have an annual photo shoot. No one would throw up leaves so I decided I would and they could take pictures of me!

Kraft It Up April challenge

I've just crept in on the last day of entries with my entry for the April challenge over at Kraft It Up
The challenge was to use a kraft background and include at least 3 other kraft items on your layout. I have used Jillibean corrugated Kraft alphas, Kaisercraft kraft alphas, a kraft corrugated doily, some kraft ribbon, kraft butterflies and some  kraft coloured cork.

Purple Pumpkin May sketch challenge

Decided to do a few more challenges this month. So first up is this sketch over at Purple Pumpkin this month.

Here is my take. Still using baby photos and I have taken to doing a bit of hand stitching on my layout. I've also included 2 PP buttons and a PP chenille lollipop.

I'm a big fan of Lily Bee and when I saw this sketch I just had to have a go.
