Inspired Blueprints Sketch 95 - Scoot

Hi everyone

This weeks sketch over at Inspired Blueprints is a fab, 2 photo sketch. I loved the sketch and took advantage of the white space to make another dylusions background - love these inks!! I've used a crafters workshop mask and then finished the layout off with the black border using gelatos. 

Here is the sketch, and as you can see I have stayed pretty true to it. 

Hope to see your entry up in the gallery here!

AAS Class Layout

Today I am sharing a layout I created for my monthly crop class at All About Scrapbooks. The focus of this class was on creating backgrounds using Dylusions Ink Sprays. They are so much fun and easy to use. I love how opaque they are.

I've used Echo Park "All About a Boy" and October Afternoon papers, as well as some 2Crafty chipboard to create this page of my kids in their Tae Kwon Do gear. They've quite the tough pose going on! 

Thanks for popping in

Sketch #93 - Inspired Blueprints

Hello everyone

The weekly sketch went live over at Inspired Blueprints today and it is a fabulous multi-photo one. Be sure to check out all the DT's layouts, everyone has interpreted this one differently!

Here is sketch #93

And my interpretation of the sketch:

Another page where I've used photos of me...I think I've done more me layouts this year than in all my other years of scrapping combined!! And more Maggie Holmes, with a bit of MME in there too.

To play along with this and the rest of the weekly sketches, head here.

Thanks for visiting!

A Smile is the Best Makeup a Girl can Wear

Hello everyone

A new month and a fabulous new challenge over at Scrap the Girls. This month the challenge is a quote one and what a great quote it is: 

"A smile is the best makeup a girl can wear"

This quote can be used as your title or journaling as long as it appears somewhere on your layout. 

This is my take on the challenge using more of the Maggie Holmes Crate paper which I am totally in love with!!

Be sure to pop over and check out the other creations from the rest of the team and upload your entries by the end of may to win some fabulous prizes!

Circle Love

Hi everyone

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! I did get a chance to scrap today, but nothing I can show just yet, but I have a few recently scrapped that I have only just photographed to share. 

Not sure what it is about circles exactly but I'm always attracted to a page that features circles. Today I have two layouts that feature circles. 

My first layout is Little Miss Chatterbox. I found these very cute photos of Lily having a lovely little chat on the toy phone from the cubby house. These are obviously a few years old now but only recently discovered like the ones in last post. I love going back over older photos. 

I've even uncovered the sewing machine for this one!!

My second layout has been sitting kitted up for so long I can't even remember when I did it. For crop days I usually sort through some photos and match up some papers and then pop them into bag, occasionally with some embellishments with the plan that I will scrap them on the day. But I also print out new photos and then like to spend time shopping and matching up my new fresh photos with lovely new papers. The result is some of these "kits" sit in my trolley for months and months....

Anyway the other day I did a clean up and decided I really needed to get this page done once and for all. The photos are from 2010!! The paper is probably that old as welL... but it's got some recent 2crafty chipboard and felt stars from ScrAp this!
