Two More Layouts for The Scrapbook Store

Hello everyone

Another rainy day in Sydney - seriously it hasn't stopped for weeks! It makes photographing layouts hard work, but finally had no choice but to photograph my final two layouts for The Scrapbook Store using MME Find your Wings and Fly range. 

First up is this photo of Zane I took on the day we were mucking around with the moustaches. He was trying to look very serious, but when I look at it I see a glimpse of what he may look like when he is older! I have some journaling hidden on the tag behind him about it.


My final layout uses some scrap strips of the papers and one of the full sheets I was given which is perfect as a background paper with its cute banners!

Love Life & Life will Love you Back:

Inspired Blueprints Sketch #99

Hello everyone

This weeks over at Inspired Blueprints we are up to sketch #99!! That's a lot of fun sketches, and this weeks one is no exception. It is a great single photo sketch with a super cute banner!

Here is my take on the sketch, a picture of Lily on her 6th birthday this year.

Today you are 6
 



 and here is the sketch from which it is based:


As you can see I have replaced the heavily misted background with die-cuts and have condensed the sketch in, then swapped my journaling and title to the right hand side. 

Be sure to come along and join in with lots of fun sketches here

Seriously Cute

Hello all

Popping in to share my take on the sketch challenge over at The Scrapbook Store. This months sketch is a page maps one:



I love the butterflies and had just the photo! My take is a pretty literal interpretation of the sketch with only a few minor adjustments. I've use Simple Stories Vintage Bliss for this layout, it is just gorgeous.



A close up of the journaling:

Inspired Blueprints Sketch#97

Hello everyone

Another week and another sketch over at Inspired Blueprints. This weeks sketch has lots of different sized photos and is a fun multi sketch challenge. 

I have created a layout from our trip to Hong Kong Disneyland back in 2011 - still so many to do - featuring Goofy. He was quite entertaining and it was a lot of fun for the kids. So keeping the fun in mind I went with some super bright colours to complement Goofys unique dress sense!



I have stayed pretty true to the sketch, but my main photo is smaller at only 4x6 so I skipped the smaller photo in the sketch:

 
 Hope to see some entries in the IB gallery which you can find here!

STG June - Winter

Hello everyone

Can you believe it is already June and winter is here? It sure feels like it today in Sydney, lots of rain and wind, very cold!! 

This months challenge over at Scrap the Girls embraces all things winter with the challenge being to scrap a layout using Winter Colours.  That means, no brights, no pastels. 

Here is my take on the challenge


I've used EP Times and Seasons papers, love the deep blues and maroons, and the cute journaling tag with an appropriately wintery quote "You are my sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey". 

Hope to see lots of entries this month for this one, lots of great prizes up for grabs, be sure to check it all out here.
