Scrap the Boys-December challenge

And while I was at it and the mojo was flowing, I also finished this
page for the Scrap The Boys Challenge.
The theme for this month was:
'All I want for Christmas'
So here is my page of my elfy son.
 I used a charms creations mini runner, and the cute little
elf is a Xmas decoration made from clay
(From K-Mart) - I thought they were so cute
and they came in a mixed pack of 3.
Also, the Xmas tree paper there is actually the packaging from
the decoration!!
And the star paper is also packaging from the Studio Calico pack
 I love these wood veneer stars! Going to be using them heaps!

Scrap the Girls - December challenge

Yep, its the weekend before Xmas and I have scrapped!!!
Crazy, but yes. All my shopping is done, its a hot day
so i scrapped in the air-con
This page is for the challenge over at 'Scrap the Girls'
You had to use multiple photos - 3 or more!
 I have scrapped 3 photos of my daughter and I on the Boomerang
slide at Waterbom Park Bali from our January holiday 2013.
 I have used some texture paste and mists, tissue paper,
and this cool frame from Studio Calico.
 Also did some light stamping among the mist
And finally a closeup of us on the slide - it was so much fun!

Hi all.
BW2 have a fabulous colour combo for this festive season.

I really love this non-traditional colour combo!!
Here is my layout
I scrapped a photo of my Blue Lagoon cocktail
from a few NYE's ago (my fave cocktail) as it looked
so pretty! 
 I have used some wood veneers painted with perfect pearls
flair button, pearls, washi and various other papers.
Hope you all have a very Merry Xmas and a happy New Year.

Monopoly Challenge-wk 7

Week 7 Monopoly challenge over at SB top 50
this week I rolled 'lovers lane' in the quote challenge
my quote was
"I heart you because you are awesome"
PLUS, I had to use some hearts
so I used this fun photo of the kids playing
 I drew some hearts randomly around the page
 and used a Ah Scrap flag banner and pinwheel
 and of course, lots of misting! (using dylusions and glimmermist)

SB top 50 - wks 3,4,5

Playing catch up here
My challenges over at SB top 50, wks 3,4,5
Here is week 3 - colours
 This week I had landed on 'chance' so got to pick the colour challenge of my choice
SO I picked JAIL - using black and white
Also had to include a polaroid frame (I have used 2 small ones) or filmstrip and
something hidden (My journalled tag)
here is a closeup of the hidden tag and my textured background

Now for week 4 - techniques
I landed on Cutters Close
I had to use some fussy cutting and use some leaves.
 my fussy cutting is the flourish at the top, and my leaves are the 
chipboard ones at the bottom, inked with some Heidi Swapp Colour Shine
Now for week 5 - Sketches
I think I got one of the hardest sketches, which really pushed me
I landed on Multi Main
(5 images on the sketch!!! eek)
this was the sketch:
and this was my take on it:
 I replaced 1 of the images with the SMILE cut out
 I used some textured paste on the background and sprayed with dylusions
ink at the top and Heidi Swapp colour shine at
the bottom

BW2 - November

Hi all
BW2 have a great little colour combo to get you creating just before Xmas.

Here is the inspiration for you
and here is my take on the colours:
I have used some raw chipboard to create a mocha feel, and
Some texture paste stars coloured with some inks.
  and of course, I went with some project life style features, using the little
journal cards in a block of 4 with the photo.
I love the way this has turned out.
I hope this has inspired you to use some project life
items on your everyday layouts!
So why not give this months challenge a go!

Monopoly challenge - week 1

SB top 50 - week 1 of the Monopoly Challenge
This week I rolled the number 2 which meant I landed
on the community chest which was a 'bonus'. I got to decide which of the 3 challenges
I wanted to use but just needed to add some BLING.
The challenges were 'trends' 
I went with Chevron Road - chevron, stars and handmade item

 I used some chevron paper, Ah Scrap handmade button + a d'lish scraps flair, 
and stamped some blue stars. I also used a small 
bling embellie under the photo.

I love these kind of challenges and can't wait to see what the
rest of the game will hold.

Scrapbooking top 50 - Sept challenge

I had some time (very rare these days) to do some scrapping last night.
So I gave the SB top 50 sketch challenge a go. 
I really like this sketch and it came together quite quickly.
Here is the sketch
and here is my layout
I had already made the background with the dylusions and masks
some time ago, and thought this photo matched
the colours well. 
 and a closeup of the 2 masks used with the dylusions mists
 I also used an older Ah Scrap bottlecap to match the Batman theme

Kraft it Up Challenge-August

The August challenge over at Kraft It Up was for you to use the regulatory Kraft
cardstock, plus your Own style of scrapping!
Pretty simple!
Here is my page:

I find it hard to describe my style,
but would think its 'neat and structured'
. I usually have a bit of paint, ink or texture paste
and lately washi tape and arrows.
