Some Layouts...

Well, time is getting away again. It always seems to be a downhill run after the Ekka hits town and this year is no exception. We are thick amongst birthdays, fetes and other events so there is certainly no rest for the wicked here!

I have also realised that I have not uploaded my Out of the Hat samples for July let alone August! Oops!

So without any further ado, this is the July Out of the Hat challenge which was Monochrome, White Space and a Doily. So here is my result, with Niamh when she used to be small (now she is only about 6 inches shorter than me and I am not short at 5'9"....).

I am loving these My Minds Eye doily stamps. They are just devine and stamp so well. I am also loving making my own flowers and love how these came out, and the pearl flourish was created using dimensional pearl paint on transparency, pretty cool! Did I mention that I am loving yellow at the moment??!!

So, that is July, and this is August. Criteria was - Square photo (at least one), Strip Journaling and Paint.

Now, I just have to say that this is my most favourite page in a long time, there is nothing complicated about it, but it just works! And I had so much fun creating it too!! I immediately thought of the old polaroid style of photos when I saw the square photo criteria so sourced some free frames to use, and I think the frame suits the photos, which make me laugh every time I look at them!

Aside from late sharing of those, I have just completed the August sketch challenge for Purple Pumpkin. I must say that I do enjoy a good sketch! And adding some Purple Pumpkin goodies into the mix is certainly no chore!! So here is the sketch:

And this is my take on the sketch:

Again I have been making flowers, and playing with my ever growing stash of border punches (did I mention that I have just precently purchased some more??!!), and again with the yellow!

So I think that is all for now, and hopefully I will be back sooner this time!

Thanks for stopping by,
