For the month of November this is the colour of our challenge at BW2:

 Black + Pink Pink and More Pink!!

This months challenge is up at BW2
I must admit, this one I was little scared of. Had no idea what I was going to do!
But when I grabbed the photo, immediately I found the paper (and I wasn't
actually sitting down to scrap this challenge at first)
 I challenged myself with this one and love the way the stencil worked
on the background (will be using this again for sure)
 I love this Tim Holtz filmstrip, so glad I found it!
Here are some close-ups of my handmade book paper flower that
has been misted in green.
You may also notice the mist that has been dribbled and sprayed
on the orange paper.

cardstock, bazzill, pp-cosmo cricket, washi tape, staples,
bakers twine, Tim Holtz filmstrip, paint, glimmermist, date stamp,
cosmo cricket & doodlebug designs letters, book paper, brads, lace ribbon, ribbon, flower die and stencil

Another month and another challenge for Scrap the Girls. I've managed 2 months in a row!
This month was 'Sports, or outdoor activities'
So I finally scrapped this professional photo of Tahlia at her first Zone little athletics carnival
way back in 2009!  She did so well, finishing in top 3 of her 4 events and so becoming
addicted to this sport!!
So thats what inspired the title.
I was aiming for this page to be all about the photo, so didnt add too many
embellies to take away from it.
 Here is a close-up of the bling
Items used: cardstock, overlay, pp: Stampin Up, Teresa Collins, Bo Bunny, Pink Paislee, Fiskars punch,
washi tape, MME pearl flourish, Burdies handmade flower, letters: Basic Grey &

Scrap the Girls - August

I decided to have a go at a challenge (its been a while), so I picked Scrap the girls. The criteria this month was to use stars on your layout. So I have finally scrapped this photo of Tahlia from her 1st State Cross Country for school - which was last year! (she finished 19th!)

I have used a red star lace cutout, overlayed ontop of a red Fancy Pants transparency.  I have used a few splashes of glimmermist, burdies embellies zipper flower, Ah Scrap Kraft doily (split in 2), book page, prima flower centres, washi tape, flowers, and I made my own pearl flourishes using some liquid pearls (a tutorial was in the current SBM and I loved the idea so gave it a go) quite happy with the overall result.

BW2 - August

Another month already!!! This year is flying by far too quickly.....
Here is my August layout for the BW2 challenge: This month the colours were, black + aqua and pink. I thought these colours were perfect for this beach photo of Tahlia, as the colours of the photo were also similar.

I have used some striped washi tape, crochet doily from the Chip Chop Shop, heart pop by Rainbow Splendour, bella bling, resin flower, raffia flower, various pp and a Jenny Bowlin bingo card.
Here is the inspiration image to help you along this month
