Dinosaur double

I quite enjoy doing double pages. I like to put multiple photos on my pages and this is an easy way to do so and still have room for journalling.

I found a new challenge today. It's at Orange paperie and co. This challenge is to do a double page spread.

I don't have a die-cut machine but a friend helped me print out the dinosaur and tracks on her Cricut. Very kind of her.

Soul Scrapper's - new challenge CUCC31

Check out my latest challenge over at Soul Scrappers. It runs from 17 July to 7 August 2014.

All you have to do is create a nature themed page. I have done a double.

These are photos I took of my local park, Wireless Hill. Walking through it takes me back to my childhood. I lived in the country so spent a lot of time building cubbyhouses in the bush, poking fox holes, catching yabbies with my brother and general walking or horse riding.

Head over to Soul Scrappers and check out album CUCC31 for more examples and inspiration and to put your entry in. I'm awarding a prize if I get 8 entries or more.

Singapore Supertrees

ATW20 - Soul Scrappers

This layout is for the Around The World challenge by Karen at SS. She had 4 pics to be inspired by. One was of the Supertrees. I had some photos of them from our trip last year. These pics were taken from the top of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

I've used mostly Webster's Pages Palm Beach collection to create this page.

Reach the Stars card

I'm playing along with Sketch #94 at Feeling Sketchy blog today. I've used a bit of Prima packing with some added washi tape, along with a Prima chipboard piece that reads "You will reach the stars you just have to take the first step."  I thought that was a nice sentiment.

Here's the sketch.

July DT layout for Archiscraps

This month's challenge has just gone live today. Julene has been holidaying overseas.

St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow (website)

I took my inspiration from the predominant colours of blue, white, green and orange. I liked the semicircle pattern on the large spire. By background paper picks this up nicely. The added criteria is layering. Firstly my photos have a Hotel that has a lot of interesting layers. Next I have layered papers and stickers.
I used an Imaginisce trees stamp which I have then coloured and fussy cut to create a little forest to match the theme of the page.
