Fun ...

I am playing along with the Scrapbookit challenge for November which involves ..


I think my family up a tree can be classed as fun :)

I have flowers on two of my patterned papers as well as physical flowers on my page.

My five embellishments I took as meaning five types of embellishments as this wasn't clear and it appears the DT went this route.

Spray ink on the background
Die cuts
Enamel hearts
Journal spot stickers

This happened ...

Loved the bold colours and strong use of black on the November moodboard for Scrapping Clearly this month.

No automatic alt text available.

I decided to run with these colours for my own page featuring our rather spoilt felines.

ARTastic November ...

Our November inspiration on ARTastic comes to you from Arthur Baker Clack with "The Citadel, St Tropez".

Image may contain: plant, outdoor and nature
CRITERIA - Use paint or ink

The painting held a real holiday vibe for me so I have used some happy vacation snaps of our trip to Tasmania a few years ago.  There is no patterned paper on this layout - my background was created using ink and stickers.

Hope you can play along.

Awesome ...

Sharing my page made for Off the Rails Scrapbooking this month using this moodboard and criteria of "Recycled".

October Challenge

I pulled out a draw I have that contained pieces f ephemera - old tickets, library cards, receipts, vouchers etc to use in place of patterned paper and then added in salvaged buttons from my button jar and a few other bits and pieces.  I used the teal, green and yellow from the moodboard.

Sweet Boy ...

Joining in with the challenge on Scrap the Boys this month with this rather lovely blue and pink moodboard.

I loved the whimsical feel of this colour combination and more to prove to myself that it was indeed possible to create a boys page in these colours decided to have a go.

I pulled out some papers from Shimelle's Starshine collection along with a selection of sequins, enamels dots and hearts and acrylic stars and basically went to town.  I really like what I have created.

Snow and wood ...

Archiscraps have based their challenge for October on this image ...

Snow and wood ... so I pulled out a series of photos of my kids experiencing snow for the very first time, teamed it with some wood veneer snow flakes I had in my stash and was beginning to think I would never get used and also used the colour scheme seen in the photo.

ARTastic October ...

Our October inspiration on ARTastic comes to you from Lyn Butchart with a piece called Green Peacock.

CRITERIA -  Monochromatic (can be any colour)
Feel free to use black, white, kraft or navy as your accent colours.

Monochromatic colours are all the colours (tones, tints and shades ) of a single hue.

I decided to do something a little different and got out my container of washi and put them to good use! 

Hope you can find time to play along.

CSI 262 ...

This was so cute I just had to participate in the CSI Challenge #262 this month.

and I did something a little bit challenging ....

which involved a KI Memories die cut page I have been hoarding forever, a couple of circle punches, left over odd project life cards, glue and lots and lots of patience ...

and I truly love the result ...

Meet Miss Bella - our much loved family member.

I scream, you scream ....

I couldn't resist doing a page for Off the Rails Scrapbooking this month which was focusing on food.

I used a section of the colours in the moodboard to create a page about birthday celebrations at my daughter's work - gelato instead of cake, what a great way to celebrate!

A little fruity ...

Playing along this month with Archi-scraps using their inspiration image and criteria of fruit.

I was inspired by the colours of orange, yellow and line green as well as the circles to create a page about one of the things I really like about cruising - the fruit based cocktails!  I also used some plastic fruit embellishments that worked perfectly for this page.

ARTastic September ...

It is Father's Day here in Australia tomorrow and as a tribute to the males in our lives our September inspiration on ARTastic comes to you from Robert Haganand is called The mentor.

CRITERIA - Let's celebrate the males in our lives

Beach scenes and seagulls always remind me of fish and chips at the beach.  I've used the same colours of variations of blue with sand and added a splash of red for the bucket.

Hope you can join in with us this month.

Sweet ...

I've enjoyed playing along with Scrap the Girls this month with this really striking mood board and lovely colour palette.

 Current Challenge

I focused on the colours, added in a bright stripey paper that gave the feel of the zebra pattern and focused on the image of the girl with downcast eyes.
