The Scrappiest #135

It is that time of the week again!

Time to share the next sketch with you from The Scrappiest and it is very cool! Love your work Liz! I decided to flip this sketch to suit my photo, but I will definitely be re-scrapping it the right way up after seeing the gorgeous samples from the DT girls.

'Back to school' week at Bella Bvld

Over in America the children are starting to head back to school after their summer break and Bella Blvd is joining the party. I was asked to create a page for the blog but with a little twist.
Laura asked me to scrap a school page using any of their other fabulous collections.

I chose one of the latest collections and a big favourite of mine Making the team. The colours are so perfect for Harrison's school colours, they really picked up the detail in the photos.
I think I will definitely need to buy more :)

School sports day


The Scrappiest #134

Absolutely loved the multi-photo sketch this week over at The Scrappiest.
It was perfect to showcase our latest visit to the playground and my boy clowning around on the swings. Hopefully the gorgeous samples from the DT girls will inspire you to have a go.

You have until August 31st to link your take on this sketch here or you can tackle any other sketch this month to be eligible for the $30.00 gift certificate from Cropstop

Weekend Scrapping

I had a lovely quiet weekend at home.
Apart from soccer on Saturday, I think the only time I ventured outside was to hang some washing. The rest of the weekend was spent playing with my scrapbook supplies.

The first page I did was for a friend from Harrison's school. Her and hubbie went to a 1920's party all dressed up and the photo she sent to me was sreaming at me to be scrapped. With her permission, I did a little editing of the photo and started scrapping as a gift for her.

Back in time


Another page added to my 52 week album, our night out on the town. And no I can't get my leg up there LOL!

Night of the stars


My 2Crafty reveal - Freeze this moment

Features the negative piece from the largest frame in the 12x12 Postage Stamp pack.

Playing with Brilliance Inks and stamps :)




I have my sample from The Scrappiest to share tomorrow and a little feature for Bella Blvd. Stay tuned.

A great scrappy weekend.

Finally I have actually managed a weekend pretty much full of scrapping!
And I am delighted :)

Thursday night was dedicated to 2Crafty and another gorgeous chipboard title, Imagine

Look at my little man!! Where did my baby go? I love scrapping older photos.



I met with some gorgeous friends Friday night for 4 hours of uninterrupted creativity. I managed 2 'just for' pages using the yummy Bo Bunny Ad lib collection.

Simple fun


Scootering along!


On Saturday night I scrapped a page for Bella Blvd that I will have to share later and did 2 more pages for my 52 week album,

Week 30 - Sweet Victory
Tied this one in with Sara's Wordy challenge over at Savvy


Week 31 - Best surprise ever


Today after a nice sleep-in, I did this week's sample for The Scrappiest sketch that I will show on Tuesday and tackled Anna's Craft Cupboard August sketch.

Sharing the love


Not a bad weekend's work, I always wish I could do more.
But I am pretty happy with what I have done.
Thanks for dropping by :)

Busy with family

My younger Sister and the kids surprised us with a visit all the way from Brisbane last Saturday, so the scrapping achieved has been very minimal.
But I must admit, I was really enjoying spending my time with family for the week.

I did manage to get Anthea's August sketch challenge done over at Scrapbook Savvy

Enjoy the blissful days


And I did my sample for this weeks gorgeous The Scrappiest sketch #132


Crazy hair day


I am definitely hoping to scrap much more this weekend.
Thanks for dropping by :)
