It's pink ...

I did this page for the "I am inspired" challenge on ScrapLounge.

 I was really taken with the pink - such a shock of colour and found the brightest pink I had in my cardstock stash to use as my base.  It isn't an exact match but is very close to the image.  I used touches of green to represent the pops of greenery.  I was extra pleased with myself as I managed to use up some felt embellishments which had been sitting in my stash for what seems like years!

Simple as 123 ...

Sneaking in another challenge for September - gosh can you believe it will be October tomorrow, this year has just flown past.  This one is for 123 Challenge Blog  and as challenges go was a bit of a toughie and it took me a little while to work out how I would tackle it.

123 Challenge

Eventually I settled on a Super Hero theme which took care of the Super effectively, the burgundy is in the patterned paper and the coloured pencil is on the background as well as in the colouring in on the talk bubbles.

Sunshine and blue skies ...

I was hoping to get both challenges for September done for Picture This but I am afraid time has not been my friend this month and I have only managed to complete the second challenge - Sunburst + 2 photos + buttons

Also submitting this for The Color Sisters September colour board

A fresh beginning ...

The challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge this month is all about beginnings.

My delightful MIL bought herself a lap top while in her late 70's and took herself off to her local community centre for adult computer lessons thereby proving you are never too old to make a fresh beginning.

Also submitted for the anything goes challenge at Clique Kits.

Some September Christmas cheer ...

I am probably not alone when I say I have a file full of Christmas photos I have yet to scrap, many from years and years ago.  There are family photos, ones of kids opening presents, Christmas concerts, Christmas carols, visits to Santa, Christmas lunch, Christmas dinner, Christmas lights and trees and decorations and .... well you get the idea.  I also have a draw full of Christmas designed paper, cardstock, ribbon, embellishments and assorted stickers just waiting to be used up.

So it is probably no real surprise when I tell you I really like Christmas related scrappy challenges that aren't in December and I can pull out this file grab a photo and put together a quick and simple layout.

Scrapbookit has one such challenge this month and I can tick one more Christmas family photo off my to do list :)

Happy days !!!
