An angle ...

November is "Something at an angle" challenge month at Archiscraps and have this photo for inspiration - at an angle it certainly is !!  Wow these can't be real can they?

Still the challenge was interesting so I put my thinking cap on and came up with my version of an angle on a layout.  I pulled a few of the colours from the swatch and ran with them.

Thanks for looking :)

Scrap the Boys ...

Ahhh sports and boys - kinda goes hand in hand doesn't it?  My son is sporty but probably not in the conventional sense - he doesn't play soccer or football, isn't into tennis or golf - he's a swimmer and quite a good one so the challenge this month on Scrap the Boys had instant appeal .. it was time to scrap a swimming photo or two.

I had THE perfect photos taken at a swim club night and of course wonderful Kaisercraft papers to document the event.  

Thanks for looking :)

Detecting with CSI ...

I am Guest Detective for Scrapbook Fantasies over on CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration this month with their Case File #218.

I had a lot of fun putting this page together featuring our rather lazy feline.  I used papers from Shimelle for the colour scheme and added in a few enamel dots and dotty paper, clouds as weather elements, an animal (of course) and used the words pet and active in my journaling.

Hope you can play along this month.

123 Challenge Blog in November ...

I think you will like our challenge over on 123 Challenge Blog this month.  I know I loved the colour and the other elements came together quickly.

Colour: Peach

Word: Pretty

Technique: Pleats

Here is my page ...

Hope to see your work in our link-up.  

A touch of gold ...

Hope you like our inspiration on Pixels and Paper Challenge Blog this month - it is rather elegant I think..

You might love the white, gold and pink colours or be inspired by the use of the three squares.  You might be drawn to the chair or the columns or particularly like the floral paintings.  Whatever draws you we'd love to know what has inspired you.

Our CRITERIA is to add a touch (or more) of GOLD to your work.

I was inspired by the white, gold and pink colour scheme and the idea of the chair.

Can't wait to see what inspires you!
