RES Mystery Box Challenge & Scrap the Girls

Life has settled down a bit this week.  My daughter turned 18 on Sunday, we had a small party on Saturday night.  There will certainly be more layouts to come.

Decided that it was time for me to do some scrapping and have completed two layout.  The first one is for Red Earth scrapping Mystery Box Challenge by Amanda.  This month we had to use 2 masks, strips of paper, stitching, hand written journalling.  Had heaps of fun doing this one.

Another photo from our trip to Thailand in January 2010. Just love the food.  There are heaps of these food sellers by the side of the road.  They have the cooker on the back of a motor bike.  We stayed clear of seafood and things that just didn't look right, but other than that there was no problem with the "sticks" we bought from these guys.

I haven't done a layout for Scrap the Girls for quite a while but as soon as I saw this quote I knew I had to do it.  I knew which photos I would use as well.

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. 

You know whatever you do, they'll still be there." Amy Li

This layout came together quite quickly, the hardest part was working out how to put the quote on.  Was a bit nervous about the masks and using the mist on a pp.  But I am really pleased with the result.

May 123 Challenge

This is the first time I have completed a 123 Challenge.  This month the criteria are: Colour: Orange, Word: Enjoy, and use Bakers Twine.  I recently bought some orange & yellow glimmer mist and they are my favourites at the moment.  Here is my layout.  I had lots of fun doing it.

How could you not ENJOY having breakfast with such a fantastic view.  The photo is was taken 2 years ago in Fiji.

Stuck Sketches

Have scrapped again - yeh!  Have done the Stuck?! Sketch 1 May challenge.  Here is the sketch:

Over at Red Earth Scrapping, Helen added some extra criteria for this sketch.  We had to use 3 photos, bright colours & flowers & butterflies.  Here is my layout - Up in the Air.

These photos were taken on Anzac Day.  The whole extended family spent the day up at Treetops Adventure Park on the Central Coast of NSW.  I took exactly 100 photos so there will be more layouts to come.
