GDT at Purple Pumpkin

Last week I had the opportunity to Guest Design over at Purple Pumpkin.  These are the layouts I created using the very generous pack I was sent as well as a few things from my extensive stash of Purple Pumpkin goodies!!

Love this photo of my two taken at Zanes birthday last year. They are the best of friends and my whole world. 

Next up a lovely and rare photo of both my parents. Love this grey & yellow colour combo:

 I got this gorgeous pink and yellow kit which was perfect for these cute pics of Lily when she first started tap dancing that I had waiting to be scrapped. 

And finally, possibly my favourite one, some pics of Zane as a pirate using some cute little pirate embellishments. I love the background on this, I have used some texture paste over a Crafters Template, love the effect and will be using it again for sure.

I had a crop day yesterday so have a few more layouts to share later this week. You can check out my Purple Pumpkin post and all the other gorgeous work here.

Scrapz Challenges

Last month Scrapz had a month of baby challenges! I didn't get to play along much, but I have saved some of the fantastic sketches and other challenges to do later on anyway. I did manage to complete two of the challenges. 

Sheree set a challenge to scrap first Easter photos. I had forgotten all about these photos of Zane. His expression when he first laid eyes on the Chocolate Easter Bunny was absolutely priceless, it makes me laugh still looking at it now. And yes he is a total chocoholic!! 

The next one was a gorgeous sketch by Chloe. Love this photo of Lily and I and was surprised I hadn't yet scrapped it!

I have discovered a heap of baby photos that I really want to scrap now so I will probably have a few more coming up!

May Scrap the Girls challenge

This months Scrap the Girls challenge is this fabulous quote by Amy Li:

For this layout I have used the most recent photo of my sister and I, taken the day before she moved to Townsville at the beginning of the year. She is my only sibling and I miss having her close by. I had to print it in black and white as we had both been a bit teary!!

When I saw these cute chippie girls in the new Crate Paper Pretty Party collection I knew I had to use them to create my page as I wanted it to be girlie and pretty.

Be sure to check out all the other layouts from the creative team here.
