Time is ticking ...

Archi-scraps this month is all about using clocks on your work.  I have put together a couple of cards with a time and clock theme.

It is always nice to have a few cards on hand that will work for men or as a quick pick me up to a friend.

Cousins ...

Playing along with the challenge on Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge this month ...
February you may use one full sheet of paper only, and all other pieces of paper in the layout must be from your scraps. One embellishment must be leftover from a package where you have used your favourite embellies from it already, and have not found a use for the one you choose yet.

I pulled this bright happy and somewhat dotty paper from my stash and then rummaged in my scrap box for bits and pieces of paper to go along with it.  The heart embellishment has been in my stash for years - it plus the two tiny hearts were the only ones left in the packet and it was well time to put them to use.

Also submitting this the Clique Kits anything goes February challenge.

A first ...

Just sharing a page I have done for Scrapbookit this month where we are working from a Tic Tac Toe style moodboard.

February 2016 Challenge

I have used the middle line vertically - 3+ embellishments, washi tape and tearing ...

Also submitting this page to Clique Kits "anything goes" February challenge.

A favourite colour, or two ...

The February challenge on Scrapbooking Top 50 this month is to scrap your favourite colour

which left me with somewhat of a dilemma as I love most colours.   I guess I am drawn to bright happy primary colours and I do scrap a lot with both green and red so went with this choice for my page.

Thanks for looking !

Lovely vintage ...

Playing along with the Mood Board #69 challenge on Scrap Africa this month.  It is vintage and I just adore vintage style and so I have taken this challenge more in the literal sense and scrapped an old photo from the early 1930's of my Grandparents.

I have tried to stay with the colours in the moodboard and the general feel of postcards.  

Thanks for looking :)

Sweet memories ...

Joining in with the sketch challenge on The Studio Challenges this month where I have created a page for CSI - Color Stories Inspiration using Case File 191.

I have rotated the sketch so my second embellishment cluster is on the top left rather than the bottom right and in place of patterned paper I have used stencils, paint and labels.

This is a photo of my daughter taken on family vacation many years ago. I love the feel of this picture - how small and sweet she was; it brings back special memories.

Perfect Blooms ...

Playing along with the February challenge on Off the Rails Scrapbooking this month where you get a choice of two mood boards in which to find some inspiration.  I was drawn to this colour palette for my page.

I decided to do my page featuring a beautiful floral display I received earlier in the month.  I have picked up on two shades of pink on a white background and added in touches of grey.

A new challenge for me ...

Really happy to announce I have joined the design team at 123 Challenge Blog.  Super excited for the year ahead and hope you can all swing on past and join in with some of our challenges.

February is now up and how could you not like these prompts ....

My version has lots of white space - my favourite layout technique.

Come and play along with us.
