Scrap the Boys

Well, despite the madness I have managed to create another page for another challenge! Truthfully, I think being able to do this amongst the craziness helped to calm my mind! So, as you can probably guess by the post title, the challenge I completed was for Scrap the Boys. This month was a nice easy challenge too, just what the doctor ordered! The challenge was a colour challenge - Blue and Green - easy! So here is my result:

I have had fun playing with some new Dylusions mists, stamps, paint and creating subway art on my Silhouette! Quite pleased with the way that turned out!

That's it for now. Maybe, just maybe I will be able to get myself organised to finish off another challenge before the month is out! Will see what time I have after I upload and edit my wedding photos!

Thanks for stopping by.

Busy, busy, busy!

That is my life right now! Between school activities and Kindy photo shoots, not to mention getting my tax sorted my life is hectic to say the least! I have been doing my required scrapping, which will be shared at the beginning of next month, but I have also been feeling the need to do some other scrapping!

Well, I have managed to throw together an entry for the Scrap the Girls October challenge. The challenge this month was a puzzle with the following to be included:


So here is my take:

My circles are the sequins, the amazing die cut and there are some stencil circles in texture paste on the background. The rectangle is the large rectangle behind the photo using the triangle patterned paper. The strips are the patterned paper strips behind the photo, the hexagons are stenciled in texture paste on the background (and not very obvious!) and last of all the squiggle is the border drawn around the photo. Phew, it was harder than I thought to include everything!

Just a quick page, and something to help me wind down during a busy time, and hopefully I may get time to do another before the month is out! Although finding time between weddings, kindy's and camping could be interesting!

If you do have time, check out the WW1 challenge for October - White with Watermelon or the great Neon Pop inspiration board over at D'Lish Scraps!

Neon Pop

That is the name of the new inspiration board over at D'Lish Scraps, and it is as bright as it sounds!

So, there are plenty of interesting bits and bobs to inspire you on this board apart from the colour! I have to admit I was a little scared of this one at first, but I love how my page turned out.

I think most of my inspiration came from the cake, the colour on the black, and my page also loosely uses the sketch too (and there are those frame stamps again!). So much fun to go bright, bright , bright! Oh and do you like the way I used the motex tape to make my photo frames?!

Don't forget about the kits to go with the board if you are stuck for neon in your stash, they are fab!

On my page I have used the following products from the D'Lish store:

Mini Pegs
Live Laugh Love Charm
Neon Hearts - grab bag
Hot Pink Sequins
Shabby Chiffon Rose Trim - Orange
Sequin Bow - Hot Pink
Medium Polka Dot Buttons - Hot Pink, Orange, Yellow
Polka Dot Buttons - Green, Blue
Motex Tape Refill - Fluoro Pink and Fluoro Yellow

Can't wait to see your pages inspired by the Neon Pop board!

White with 1

Well, October already! This marks the beginning of my time on the WW1 creative team! So very exciting. This month the colour is white + watermelon, a good summery colour and given our mini heat wave last week it already feels like summer too.

The creative team was also lucky enough to get some gorgeous chipboard from 2 Crafty, who also are sponsoring one of the prizes for the month. So, here is my sample to get your creative juices flowing!

I created my own background for this one using some frame stamps that I have recently acquired! So what are you waiting for, time to get your watermelon out of your stash and onto a page!

Thanks for stopping by!
