Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia December Challenge

As soon as I saw this challenge I knew I needed to scrap a photo of my daughter.
She has a tattoo of arrows on her arm and the significance being that arrows cannot fly backwards!
And yes she is extraordinary!

I used the arrows and colours as inspiration.  Luckily I had just received some Chipboard from Scrapmatts which included the skeleton leaves - fitted perfectly.

Thanks for taking a look.

3 layouts!

Hi everyone,

First of all I need to apologize.  I totally forgot about today's blog post! 
My brain is somewhat frazzled - as I am sure many of you are feeling the same way at this time of year.

Today I have three layouts to share.

You may have noticed that a lot of my layouts have lots of lovely Scrapmatts chippy goodness on them.  Today's layouts are different.  I want to show you that Scrapmatts chippy is also great for a simple addition.

My first layout is for the December 123 Challenge.  I started by using a stencil to do the gold background.  I added the swirl and arrow as embellishments and use the words for my title.

 ST9003 Circles

CB4069 Ornate Frames 26  (I cut the swirl so it fitted with the cluster)

 CB1236 Scrap Words 22

 CB1192 Scrapwords 04
 CB6105 Assorted Words 23

 My next layout is another lovely family photo.  Again I used a stencil in gold (bit hard to see!).  I used some of the words for my title and embellies.

ST5011 Stencil Circles

 CB6113 Scrapwords 32

CB1209 Scrapwords 19

CB 5166 Leaf spray  15

My last layout is the cake my daughter made for her 21st in September.  Love how she decorated it with a rainbow surprise inside.  I started with two stencils and bright pastes and sprays.  A simple circle around the flowers with the arrow, and two words and a heart to finish it off.

ST5049 Lattice

ST5006 Stencil Circles

CB5140 String Circles 04

CB1159 Hearts 05

CB6095 Assorted Words 18

CB1236 Scrap Words 22

CB1192 Scrap Words 04

I hope my layouts have inspired you to make some time to create in this busy period.
Hopefully I will be able to do so over the weekend.

I hope you all have a very happy and safe Christmas and New Year
and I looking forward to seeing what 2018 brings for us all.

Kraft Plue June Challenge

Me again!!!

Here is my layout for the June Kraft Plus Challenge.  You had to use Kraft (of course) and one other colour.

I loved the Bay of Fires in Tasmania when we were there in January.  Love the orange lichen on the rocks.

Orange was the natural choice for this layout,  It is also one of my favourites - Paula Perry!!!!

Scrap the Girls October Challenge

Hi there, here is my layout for the Scrap the Girls October Challenge.
Purple is not usually my colour and I don't own any purple sprays. 
I completed this layout while on retreat last weekend and luckily
 one the lovely ladies is a purple addict!

Love the mix of purple spray, with grey & green Colour Blast Pastes.
Thanks for stopping by.
