123 for September ...

Think you will like the challenge we have on 123 Challenge Blog this month - it was certainly a fun one to put together.

September 123 Challenge

Here is my page featuring beautiful Russell in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand.


Hope you can play along with us this month.

White..with 1 ...

This month on White..with 1 we feature this really gorgeous colour called SOUL PEA - can't wait to see what you can do with this snazzy little colour!


and just to inspire you a little more - how about this moodboard to grab your attention.


I have actually played along this month rather than be behind the scenes and really enjoyed putting this page together - it is a lovely colour to work with.


Hope you can come join in with us.

It was off the rails ...

A last minute play along with the challenge on Off the Rails.



I was inspired by the graffiti and used this as a basis for my background along with the bright colour combination.



My son was fortunate to have THE James Morrison come to his school for a small group jam session.  Both the class of eager music students and attending teachers were in awe!!

Kraft + ...

Having very limited supplies for the time being due to an impending house move has really made me stretch my creative juices - it's been fun actually :)  I surprised myself with what you can achieve with the very, very basics.

Playing along with Kraft + this month.  Trees are amazing !!

 




Thanks for looking.

Congratulations ...

In between the painting and packing ready for a house move I found myself just wanting to craft a little bit with the limited supplies I still have available at the moment and decided to play along with Scrapbook Boutique this month.


Grey, black and white with a touch of yellow (and I also liked the grid line up of the moodboard).


My son has a number of friends sitting the HSC this year so I thought a "Congratulations" card will be put to good use!

And finally ...

And I think this is the last challenge page for this month.

White with Orange, Gold and Kraft plus chipboard for Scrapping Outback.


Most of my scrapping supplies are packed away now as I am clearing my craft room ready to paint in preparation for putting our house on the market.  This page is done using project life cards.  I am not sure who manufactured the chipboard as most of these supplies are loose in a draw.  I have used Heidi Swapp gold spray ink on the chipboard and to also splatter across my page and finished everything off with some orange enamel dots.

Getting into the blue and green ...

In amongst the packing of boxes, painting of walls and moving around of furniture ready for the sale of our house I am trying to carve out a little "me" down time every now and again or I just might go a little stir-crazy. I managed to shut the door and do a little crafting last night while everyone else was busy doing other stuff and managed to finish off a couple of pages for June challenges.

The first is for Scrapbooking Top 50 who ask us to scrap Non Perfect photos.  The one I have chosen is certainly not perfect - it is slightly out of focus and the contrast is all wrong as is the lighting but I love it all the same because it speaks to me.  I see my children - one with green eyes, one with blue and oh how those eyes say it all ...


The second is for Show us your stuff which has a colour challenge this month.

June 2017

I have gone with the blue and green combination, scrapping some photos from a family fun day many years ago when birthday parties meant jumping castles and lots of laughs for everyone.


Thanks for looking,

All a bit crazy ...

I am in the midst of packing boxes for a fast approaching house move but this afternoon I carved out a small window of time to just spend scrapping a few challenges because quite frankly I was going just a little crazy!

Playing along with Scrapbookit this month where the challenge is to create a project using 6x6 papers, Geometric shapes and Chipboard.

Most of my supplies are now packed away including all my 6x6 paper pads but I had a tiny selection in a swap pack I received which was still sitting in my desk drawer so I pulled these out and ran with what was available.  I used triangles to create an almost crazy pattern to go along with the crazy chipboard word and added in a photo of our cat who does crazy things.

Gold ...

I am in the midst of packing boxes for a fast approaching house move but this afternoon I carved out a small window of time to just spend scrapping a few challenges because quite frankly I was going just a little crazy!

Playing along with Scrapbook Boutique with this moodboard ...


... and made this card using strips of washi inspired by the lines of gold arrows.  The frame replicates the mirror and I have added in an acetate greeting and some gold stars.

STB June ...

I am in the midst of packing boxes for a fast approaching house move but this afternoon I carved out a small window of time to just spend scrapping a few challenges because quite frankly I was going just a little crazy!

Playing along with Scrap the Boys with a very bright and vibrant colour challenge this month.


My page isn't quite so vibrant but all the colours are in there and I don't think you can get any more boyish than a teen speeding around a go-cart circuit.


Most of my supplies are now packed away but I have kept out a number of kits to go on with - this one was mainly Crate Paper - Boys Rule - I loved this range.

 Thanks for looking,

Pretty in pink ...

Another pretty moodboard on Scrapbook Boutique this month.  Loved the pink, white and gold tones of this and decided to run with a simple card in these colours.



thanks for looking xx
