CSI - Share

Just a quick post to share a challenge layout, I completed today - nothing like leaving it until the last minute.
I LOVE the challenges at CSI and it was just what I needed to give my long lost mojo a boost.
Here is the Case File I selected to attempt.

Here is my take on the Case File.

I've used trees, enamel dots and text for my evidence and the inspiration word LOST for my testimony. Journalling about our recent trip to Venice. What a wonderful city!

August Challenges

I can't believe my last post was last November!!! Not only that but it was also a sharing of retreat layouts! Well here is another post almost the same.
I recently spent a few glorious days at Camp Mojo and managed to complete a few layouts using challenges as inspiration.

I completed two of the Scrapping Clearly challenges but when I tried to upload them today the link was closed! Must remember to not leave it until the last minute to photograph layouts in future! lol

Anyway this was the Mood Board and my interpretation.

And the sketch challenge from Scrapping Clearly and my layout.
I rotated the sketch to suit my photo and used washi tape and a stencilled shape to replace the banner.

It felt good to create again, I really must find more time to do it!

Retreat Layouts

Earlier this month I managed to spend three fabulous day at Opal Cove creating, laughing, eating, enjoying cocktails and spending time with some wonderful friends.
I managed a number of layouts over the weekend for a few November challenges. I love having a challenge to inspire me and give me direction, for me it make the whole process so much easier!

This one was inspired by the current mood board at Scrap Around the World.

One for Scrap the Girls and the sketch challenge for November.

Stuck! had a great sketch this month too so I decided to give that one a go.

and the final one was for the Scrap the Boys challenge - Eating out.

I love the foiled chipboard in this one. I used a new product available from Scrapboutique and I love it, it comes in a range of colours and once you get the hang of it, is fairly easy to use. I think it will be featuring on many layouts in the future!

Thanks for dropping in to take a look.

Scrap the Boys

It's hard to believe it has been so long since I last published a post! I have rediscovered my love for scrapping and have decided it is time to start using challenges as inspiration to get memories documented.
I have always loved the Scrap the Boys challenges, so this was a great place to start!
I have adapted their fabuous September sketch to come up with this layout. Lots of Dylusions paint and ink and some stencils by Donna Downey and Dina Wakley. Lots of fun!

Thanks for dropping by!

July Stylist Challenge at ScrapBoutique

The July Stylist challenge is up at ScrapBoutique and this month we are scrapping about the things that bring us WINTER COMFORT.
You can find all the details here.

Think scarves and jumpers, roaring fires, warm curries, reading books indoors when it is raining.....the ideas are up to you.

The only extra criteria is to use at least two old items from your stash. 

I've scrapped about my love for long boots, denim and chunky scarves when the weather turns cold and used some very old Maya Raod snowflakes and Basic Grey rubons.

Get your entries into the gallery by the 31st July to be in the running to win a $20.00 voucher for the Boutique along with free postage

Hope you can find the time to join in, we'd love to see some new faces!!

Monday, July 1, 2013 update!

Well I knew I had neglected this blog but I had no idea it had been that long between posts! Sometimes life gets in the way of scrapbooking and finding time to be creative and I really must make more of an effort to be less bogged down by work and find more time to do the things I love!!
Anyway, a few layouts I have recently created for Chels at SCRAPBOUTIQUE.

I worked with the wonderful Elle's Studio 'Day to Day' products to create the following two layouts!

I love the papers and all of the little bits and pieces you can cut out and add to your layouts! You can find them here.

In this first one I used the mini folder and a bag to add extra photos and journalling so I have included a close up of that too!

I made this one using the same range, I love that there are both pinks and red and then more masculine blues and browns in this range!!

Thanks for dropping by! I really must make an effort to update more frequently!!
