More scrapping

I have been up late the past few nights scrapping away and having a ball and I have realised I really do not want to go back to work. But like all good things, the fun has to end sooner or later.

I've finished the last 2 weeks for my 52 week album and scrapped some older photos that have been sitting around for awhile. I even challenged myself to use my scraps before getting out any new collections, boy that was tough.

Crazy Kids
Week 16

Using OA Campfire, 2 Crafty chipboard Monkey and a Lil' Red Rocket button



Easter 2011
Week 17

Features Echo Park - Little Boy, 2 Crafty alphabet and Easter Eggs and another gorgeous Lil' Red Rocket button



And one last page squeezed from EP Little Boy. I think these photos were printed off to do a sketch at some stage earlier in the year. I can't find the sketch now, but I thought I would scrap the photos anyway.
Look at the awesome large button from Lil' Red Rocket

It's all in the hips


And this photo is from way back in 2005, it seems so long ago.
Look how young my boy looks!

Using the very last pieces from my February Savvy DT kit featuring 3 Bugs in a Rug - Dawson


This last page was inspired by Anthea's February Savvy Sketch

Life long friends


Thanks for dropping by my blog.

Holiday Scrapping

Well there wasn't any scrapping happening here today after cleaning the house from top to bottom and last night was spent camping in the backyard, but I have managed a few pages over the long weekend.

I did Sar's Blind Scrap late Saturday night using the final pieces of my Savvy DT kit Echo Park - Playground. The page also includes a 2 Crafty Arrows covered with patterned paper and the centres from 2 Crafty Flower Spurts.
I think they make great splotches :)

Crash Test Dummy


Also squeezed a card out from the EP Playground scraps using this month's MME card sketch.


The next page started from Stuck?! April 15th sketch. It changed a little, but I think it still resembles the original sketch. I managed to sneak in a few more pieces from 2 Crafty, one remaining Thought bubble put to good use and a scalloped circle border for my journalling.

This last page started from Feb 15th Stuck?! Sketches but I think I lost my way somewhere along the way. Never mind still love it.

My Son


I am hoping to do some more tonight once DS hits the sack.

2 Crafty reveal - Baby Doll

Happy Easter Saturday!

I have been experimenting again with my 2 Crafty chipboard and loads of fun stuff. I love making a mess :)

Sadly it's very overcast so the photos won't really show how cool the chippie looks but hopefully you get the idea.

I've used a few Butterflies, some Flower spurts and used some new flourish pieces that I have used as a frame.






Decided to play with some hand-made flowers and then enhanced the photo for a little fun.

Hope you can join us over at Scrapbook Savvy the Easter long weekend.
Challenges will be loaded on Thursday April 21st to give you plenty of time to play along.

Echo Park Playground I love you xox

I was very spoilt with my Savvy DT kit for March, I was lucky enough to score the divine Playground Collection from Echo Park to create some projects with and I am totally loving it.

5 pages so far and still going, 2 cards started that I am trying to finish today.
This collection is the typical bright, happy colours that we expect from EP and I just love each of the patterns they have used.

I have shown some pages in previous post for my ABC Challenge and my sample for sketch #114 over at The Scrappiest.

So here are a few more that I've finished.

I can't believe we are already into April! We are almost a third of the way throught the year. VERY SCARY!

But the new month sadly brings to an end my ABC challenge over at Scrapbook Savvy.
Amazing isn't it! We are left with the last 2 letters, Y and Z. Probably the hardest 2 as well but I am sure we can muddle through.

Hopefully by now you now the drill, pick a letter and think of a one word title. Scrap your page, include the criteria listed below and upload it to the gallery before Midnight Thursday 30th April to be eligible for the random draw.
Hopefully you manage to scrap both letters :)

the criteria is:
Y - Yarn and the Year
Z - Zigzag (border, stitching or PP) and Zip

Here is my Y page featuring the gorgeous Echo Park collection - Playground!
