Boy stuff

The last of my September challenge pages was for Scrap The Boys.
It had to be about the great outdoors, or in my case, backyard shenanigans.

Plenty of messy mists on this one along with a  couple of Chic Tags, some washi tape, twine, and a scrap of art paper from Somerset Memories magazine.

Showing stuff...

Aaaaand another challenge for September
This time it's SUYS, use red and white and something hand-made.
I used a Charm's Creations yellow banner flag for my hand-made,
I cut the corners off and stuck them as arrows to the right of the pics.

Some Dylusions ink spray, Glitz Designs chevron tape,
alpha stickers and red mesh. I haven't shown Ruby,
not sure she would approve ;-)

Krafting it Up

Here is my page for the KIU September challenge based on this sketch

 I took a bit of liberty with the circles :-)


September's WW1 challenge was white with pistachio.
Seemed perfect for Ireland.
I never get tired of scrapping these pictures
taken nearly 2 years ago at Kylemore Abbey, Connemara, Ireland.
If I ever win lotto I'm going to buy a house in Ireland and
live there every winter 'coz I love the cold!
(And the whiskey ;-)

Thanks for dropping by

For Charm

Here is my page for the third challenge over at Scrapbooking From Scratch,
set by Charm of Charm's Creations.
It's thrown together with a bunch of stuff (that would otherwise
have gone in the bin), and under sufferance of constant interruptions.
And I'm sorry to say that it looks it!
Still, it's done...

Thanks for coming by :-)

Love being inspired

I had a fun time this month playing with the Scrap Around The World

I used the sketch combined with the
high contrast black & white patterns from the mood board.
The white cardstock base was salvaged from the awesome
Ebony's bin at Camp Mojo, I used it for a kick-start :-).

The fabulous hounds tooth is wrapping paper from an order at
Paper Issues (thank you Cassie x), Dylusions ink sprays, washi tapes, and a few ancient things from my stash.
I also want to thank the gorgeous Sharmaine for the inspired journalling,
I saw it on a page she did and just had to borrow it.

A 'thank-you' scrap

I have met Peta a few times at various retreats,
she brings along the best products and most well-stocked shop
I've ever seen on the road!
So much so that I have increased my mandatory spending budget for getaways.
Awesomely you can also shop with her online here, and
keep up with what she's got going on here.

So I had a go at 2 of the 3 challenges up at
Scrapbooking from Scratch this month just to say
thanks for being fabulous!

First up is the sketch by Anita

Patterned papers, die-cut tags, flowers and buttons from Graphic 45.
Glitz Designs woodgrain alpha stickers, Crate Paper wood grain paper,
Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon, Dymo, twine, Bazzill white cardstock
and a wet tea bag.

and secondly Donna's colour challenge

The sweet layered banner flags are from Charm's Creations.
Background done with bubble wrap and Tattered Angels Chalkboard mists,
Glitz Designs patterned papers, Chic Tags,
and cardstock & alpha stickers from Crate Paper.

It's school holidays here for the next 2 weeks so 
I'm hoping to get in some more play time :-)

Thanks so much for dropping by,
Hope your world is being wonderful.

Still in love :-)

With Gauche Alchemy of course!
Here are a couple of recent pages I did for them.

 One for the blog which is always chockablock full of inspiration
and information from the Alchemists.
Details and a close up here

And one from the August Newsletter; if you still need to sign up
you can do it right here on the side bar where it says 'Get All The Dirt'.

Here's my new page for this month, I have been getting very messy :-D
I have had these 3 pics of my gorgeous girl for ages
(there were originally 5 in the sequence)
but I have been struggling to fit them on a page while not being too overwhelming. I know I should have printed them smaller to start with but....
well, that just didn't happen.
So my answer to this problem was to overlap and hinge them.
The little yellow gingham tabs are for flipping them up to see the one underneath. You should check out the shop for tons of awesome Washi tapes!
I also used a vintage magazine page from a themed kit
and some sweet UmWow Studio chippy clouds and chevron borders.
And then there's the mess made with Ranger Dylusions ink sprays.

Thanks heaps for coming by,
yours in scrappiness

I had some time to scrap on the weekend so I had a play with 

I combined it with One Little Word - want
it's in my journalling.

The background was made with The Crafter's Workshop 'blazonry' stencil,
some bubble wrap, and some Ranger Dylusions ink sprays.
Also a Tim Holtz stamp and an EK Success edger punch.
I added a chippy key from Scrapmatts, Bella! bling, a Prima flower,
a Studio Calico frame, and a black shipping tag.
Some stitching and Dymo journalling finished it off.

Thanks so much for dropping by
Yours in scrappiness
