Sisters ...

Such a beautiful moodboard over on Kraft+ this month I just couldn't resist.

I ran with the soft muted colouring of cream, brown, pink with a touch of teal and grey.  I added in the required sheet music and took inspiration from the gorgeous full flowers and the heart. I added this sweet family photo of long ago sisters.

Thanks for looking xx

And here is my page - such a rare moment having both of our cats sitting side by side.  They normally do not get along so this moment was priceless :)

Scrapping Outback ...

Playing along with Scrapping Outback this month where they have a really striking image (and colour palette) to work from.

Create a layout inspired by ALL the colours in this photo and you MUST USE AT LEAST ONE PIECE OF CHIPBOARD (as Scrapping Outback is known for ALL its Chippie) PLUS WHITE.

I think I covered all the colours - lime green, grey, aqua, blue and white of course.  The chipboard is the three stars which I painted white with a paint dauber.

Top 50 ...

I was really quite drawn to the image Scrapbooking Top 50 used for their June challenge and typically started this page earlier in the month and have only just finished it.

I love orange and rarely get to use it on my pages so it was a given that this colour would feature on this layout.  The fire very much enforced a night theme (I can remember many happy times sitting around a campfire with my family as a child, rugged up against the cold, staring up into the blanket of stars in the night sky).  I ran with this theme using some older photographs I had not yet scrapped of a night hockey game my daughter was involved with as a teenager.  It was always so bitterly cold at the hockey fields - the wind just seemed to whip across the exposed area and my dh and I would huddle, freezing, on the sidelines watching her play.  


I have used some wonderful star (night sky) paper, sprinkled a few stars of my own, used a lot of orange touches and added in an arrow or two (as per the mood board).

Two challenges ...

Up early this morning to upload a page I have done combining two challenges - one for The Color Sisters which involves using a bracket (or two) on your page and the other for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge where we have been asked to use the word Wonder or Wonderful on our layout.

It's pink love really ...

Just sharing a card I have made for the monthly challenge on Scrapbook Boutique which involved a mood board with lots of love and pink :)

Let's Dance ...

Sharing a page I have done for the May challenge on Off the Rails Scrapbooking - it was a bright and very tempting mood board this month with a dancing theme.

I loved the teal black and pink colours and of course had to throw in the glasses and Rock n Roll inspiration as well.  Hope you like it.

Another freaking entry ...

Playing along with Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge again this month.  The theme is "Your favourite place".  Not sure I have an actual stand alone favourite but there are lots of amazing places I really love. Port Stephens area in NSW is one of them.  Gorgeous spot :)

D-Lish in May ...

I was really drawn to the colours in the moodboard on D-lish Scraps this month - I am a bit of a sucker for green and blue.

These colours actually worked in beautifully with a series of pages I am currently doing of a weekend trip my dd and her bf took to the lovely Port Stephens area.  

Lot of sun, sand and sea and huge sunny smiles for a beautiful weekend.

I am rather pleased with how this one came out.

I think I have it all covered :)

My apologies for the quality of the image - it is raining here today and not conducive to picture taking !

Scrapping Clearly ...

Running late again this month - I need more days lol.  It was an unusual colour mood board on Scrapping Clearly  - hmmm - how to make these work on a boy page.  Maybe  play up the blue and yellow and tone down the teal and purple.
