Have also completed Susanne's challenge at Red Earth Scrapping,
We had to create a layout using products or techniques beginning with the letters of  SPRING.  I really enjoyed this one. It really made me think.

All my elements start with:
S - Stamps, sticker alphas, string
P - PP, pink, poppies
R - Rubon letters, ribbon, red
I - Indi girls paper, ink
N - nine buttons
G - glimmer mist (chipboard) Green

I just love these poppies in our garden.


Scrap the Girls

I haven't completed a Scrap the Girls challenge in absolutely ages.  Wanted to do this theme a couple of months ago for another challenge, but Mikala wouldn't co-operate and her photo taken.  I got her on a good day!!!!!
She has to wear a bow every where at the moment.  She has 12 bows!  Luckily they suite her.

Have used paper clips and a bulldog clip.


White with 1

Have completed the September White with 1 challenge.  This is Mikala on her 17th birthday with her youngest cousin Liam (5).  I made the cake and Mikala decorated it.

I am not really good at doing pink, even though I have 2 daughters, but I like how this has turned out.

Thanks for Looking.

Red Earth Road Trip

Wow two posts in the one night!!!!
The Red Earth Road Trip finished in August and I have only posted the first two weeks!  Here are the rest of my layouts:

Week 3 Sydney

Week 4 Tennant Creek

Week 5 Dunk Island
 ( I won the prize for this week)

Week 6 - Snowy Mountains
This layout is white on white (looks blue).  A few weeks late for this one, but I completed it.

Week 7 - Great Ocean Road 

This challenge was any size other than 12x12.

Week 8 - Burnie

Week 9 - Barossa Valley
This was a double page challenge.  I did extra - a double double layout.

Week 10 - Emerald

Week 11 - Canberra

Week 12 - Canowindra

I won the weekly prize for this one as well.

I really enjoyed the Red Earth Road Trip.  It made me create a layout every week - which is an effort.  But I completed them all (one a bit late though) and I didn't do all the cards, but I am pleased with my effort.
To top it all off I was lucky enough to be pulled out of the hat as the winner of the competition.  I was so excited.

Thanks to Helen, Linda, Susanne & Mistra for all their hard work during this competition.

Where has the time gone.  I am sure it has just vanished.  Although I haven't been blogging I have been creating.  As you can guess like has been pretty busy in the Smith household.  I have been doing a couple of extra days at work, the finals series at netball is very full on for me - the grand final was 2 Saturdays ago, so I am slowly wrapping up all the paperwork - only to start the next phase.

Have completed the September Stuck?! sketches which are also used as Helen's Sketch Challenge over at Red Earth Scrapping.  Loved doing both of them.  It has been quite a while since I have completed both monthly sketches (and remembered to upload them).

Here is my take on the 1 September sketch:

 I love using multiple photos.  This was the perfect sketch for these photos.  I am also proud of myself that I didn't use any flowers!!!

Here is 15 September sketch:

Love this photo. Our friend was taking a photo of Mikala and I, then Kaitlyn just came and jumped on my lap.  This was at the end of a really great day.

Thanks for looking.  Will post the rest of my layouts in a couple of days (hopefully).
