The Scrappiest #126

A very different sketch this week over at The Scrappiest,
definitely had me playing outside the square, but I had an absolute ball with it.
Playing with EP Summer Days probably helped too :)


I turned it 90 degrees to suit my photo.

Starting early


My gorgeous Niece already playing with her big sister's clothes, too funny!!

Very unproductive weekend

Too much happening I think!
Some test done on Thursday that had me feeling miserable, then on Friday I hurt my back......vacuuming LOL! I wish it was more exciting.
I worked an extra shift on Saturday, missing my boy playing his first soccer game. And DH forgot the camera, DOH!!
We celebrated my Aunt and Uncle's combined 60th Birthday on Saturday night. A late night for us all.

And then finally on Sunday, I got to scrap!
I finished week 23 for our 52 week album, just have last weeks to catch up on.

Play date with Alexis


And I did the next two week sketch samples for The Scrappiest which I can't share, but will leave a peek for you

2 Crafty reveal - Lego Party

Absolutely love the building blocks from 2 Crafty and they were the perfect embellishment to add to Week 24 of my 52 weeks page. Harrison went to a 7th birthday party that was purely about Lego and he loved it.

Each block has been inked with bright colours and then given that 'plastic' look with a coat of Glossy Accent. Very happy with the finished look.



Thanks for dropping in :)

The Scrappiest #125

Another gorgeous sketch to share with you this week from The Scrappiest and it's a multi-photo sketch which was perfect for me.


I have to apologise about the quality of my photo today, the weather here has not been the best this week so I've been going manual on the camera with only some success

2 Crafty reveal - Searching for your treasure.

Well I have tied 2 pieces of work into one project over the past week.
This is my page for our 'Home-made' Cybercrop over at Scrapbook Savvy this weekend, but I have also used some gorgeous 2 Crafty chipborad pieces to bring it to life.

My last 2 Crafty post I trimmed Rebecca's Border to fit on my 8.5x11 page. So here I have put the small swirls leftover to good use, inked in black with a touch of gold doodling added.


As I seem to have a liking for chopping up chipboard, I did exactly that to a beautiful Ivy Square, I do try to be gentle :)
I have placed each half on opposite sides of the photos, both lightly inked in black and doodled in gold pen.


The last pieces used where part of the embellishment cluster on the page. A scalloped circle frame, lightly inked is the base of the cluster, my home-made journal pocket to hold all of the journaling and then a 2 Crafty Vintage Key inked with gold and a touch of black, tied with some red twine and a button added to finish things off.



Hope you get a chance to join us over at
Savvy for the Cybercrop, you have until midnight Thursday June 23rd to load your layouts the the correct gallery.

The Scrappiest #124

My goodness, two posts in one day!
Thought I would get myself organised for the start of the week and post my take on the latest sketch from The Scrappiest on an Aussie Monday for a change, rather than waiting for the USA version.

This week's sketch is simply gorgeous, the page I created came together so easily and I love it. I know I will definitely use this sketch again.


I finally got to scrap these photos that I've had printed off for ages, YIPPEE!!

Jekyll or Hyde


Weekend scrapping

We've had a great long week-end here, all be it a little chilly.
Very Busy with shopping, a party and catching up with family.
Some scrapping has been achieved, just not as much as I had hoped.

I've done 2 more weeks for my 52 week album, still have last week and this week to do, but I am travelling pretty well. I finished my take on the latest scrapping whisper page over at Savvy, but sorry can't share that page yet.
Also did Renee's awesome Music Clip challenge for June and I love that page. Thanks Renee :)

Week 20 - Can't believe he's 7


Week 22 - Happy Day

Features 2 Crafty Rebecca's Border


Renee's Music Clip Challenge - And when you {Smile}

Savvy Challenges

Well I have managed to finish one Savvy challenge this week-end.
I have them all planned out, but I have run out of scrapping time today.

Anthea's Savvy sketch is very cool this month and is based on a Wendy Smith creation. I had heaps of fun scrapping it and found myself being inspired by an awesome scrapping style done by Georgia Keays.

2 Crafty reveal - Here kitty

I sat up late last night playing with some 2 Crafty chipboard and Kaisercraft Party Animals. Picture one very happy girl!
There was plenty of ink, Glimmermist, stickles and Glossy Accents sprawled out all over the bench and over my hands.

I've used a few pieces of chipboard, the tiger from the Jungle1 Animals, a flower spray cut into 2 pieces and the gorgeous wrought iron fence.




The photos were taken through the glass at Australia Zoo last year, I was pretty happy how they turned out considering I had no filters at the time.

Love my page :)
