Girl layout

I've been scrapping and blogging a lot lately. I've combined 2 challenges in 1 with this layout. I've used the August Crafty Sketches sketch with an Enchanted Scrapbooking cyber crop challenge. I don't normally do such girl layouts but I did enjoy using only pink for a change. This photo is of me at 9 years of age at home in Byford. I'm wearing a Holly Hobby t-shirt and have done a holly hobby paper piecing to match.
Also used Franchville Baby Accents fabric letters for the title, Girls Paperie birds, Abbey Road Sunshine girl die-cuts and ribbon and NRN Designs - Rosebud paper. Thanks for looking.

KC Sketch #4

I've created another School page for Kaisercraft's monthly sketch #4 using Esther's Guestlist - Rachael and Rosie, Superhero - Villian is the background, On The Dot - Sphere, Lush CB buttons and Making Memories Canvas Alpha Stickers.

New Laptop

Enchanted Scrapbooking are having a cyber crop this weekend. The first challenge is to create a lo fitting the theme new beginnings and use the word new on your page. I chose to do Mark's 1-1 laptop programme that started at School this year. He's got a Macbook which he just loves.

Scrap Tiff - Orange

Here is a layout I did at a CM GT that I held to get my two great friends Kate and Debbie into scrapping. It came together very easily. Orange is a fun colour to work with and that was the test for this week's Scrap Tiffany blog.

Getting closer

Our US trip is only a month away now. Last night we booked our Disney theme park dining options. As my son has severe food allergies this was something I felt was important to do. My husband has come around to the idea and happily Disney are very accommodating in this area.
How exciting!

KC Sketch #3

Created the following layout today using Kaisercraft's sketch #3 for August. It used 9 photos so it was perfect for my brother's birthday party (which was back in March). Happy to get that out of the way and completed.

The Devil is in the details - Scrap The Boys. You have to use ribbons on a boy page in a new way. My entry is Sea. I love this layout. Great colours. Pink and blue together.

Scrap of Your Life - Romani Kit

Layout featuring pinwheels (made using 1" square punch)
I received the Romani Kit to work for my DT posi at Scrap Of Your life. I made a layout featuring pinwheels and 2 cards using a 1" circle punch.
Uses 1" circle punch, button brads and clear stamps

Kaisercraft layout

I have completed a layout using August's sketch #1 at Kaisercraft. The sketches are quite easy to work with. I've used Esther's Guestlist (I love the colours) and some of the new Lush, plus a couple of random KC rub-ons for the title.

This month at ARTastic the inspiration is from Claude Monet's Sunset painting. It's really lovely. I've chosen to use the title page of our Rottnest Island holiday as my sub. It doesn't have a photo but it doesn't really need one I don't think.

From Scrap 2 Screen

I'm guest DT over at Scrap 2 Screen next month. Yesterday I completed my layout(s) for September's challenge. Now just have to get my PC back and I can send it on through. You will have to wait til September to see it though.
Today I'm going to do some housework and then this afternoon a couple of friends are going to walk around the bridges with me, the bridges being the Canning and Mt Henry (both over the Swan River). The walk talks a bit over an hour to complete. A few clouds about this morning but there is no rain forecast. When Lorraine and I walked around the bridges last Thursday we got pelted with rain for about 10 minutes. It was kind of fun actually.
