Charm's Creations

Hi - so if you have ever looked at my blog, then you would know I am obsessed with Charm's Creations embellishments so when Charm set a challenge to create a layout using a map marker and including the location I had to get on to it!  This is what I created:

I really like how this layout worked out.  Lot of washi tape and of course, a map marker.  This is Charm's online shop - or check her out on Facebook.  Have an awesome day :)

Scrap the Girls January Challenge!

Good evening all!!

I have spent the evening scrapping and one of my layout is for the Scrap the Girls January Challenge.  This is the sketch:  

I had to rotate the sketch to fit with my photograph, so I turned it to the right so that the tags were at the bottom of my page.  I had to re-orientate the title work in with my sketch but I think it came out alright:

Thanks for checking it out :)

White with 1 and Sketchabilities January Challenges!

Hi all!  I hope you had a good Wednesday.  It was a long day at work with me and I have been excited to share this post with you.  I love White with 1 as I find I always fall in love with the inspiration their creative team present each month and this month they have teamed up with Sketchabilities to add a fantastic sketch to the mix. The challenges are as follows:

D-lish Scraps January Challenge

Good evening!! Instead of scrapping tonight I have been wrestling with a cranky toddler but I finally got her into bed so I am going to post a layout I created last night.  I love D-lish Scraps and they alllllways have the most gorgeous mood boards.  This month it looks like this:

This is  my layout:

It really didn't come out how I imagined it would but hopefully it captured the beautiful brightness of the mood board this month.  Thank you for taking the time to have a look.  :)

123 Challenge Blog January

Good evening all!  I almost didn't get any photos taken today but I managed to late this afternoon.  The light isn't great.  I had a good time last night working on the 123 Challenge Blog January challenge which is:

This is my layout:

Colour: Lots of lemon including a Charm's Creation map marker - a handmade item
Word:  My title is appreciate the fruits of your labours
Technique:  I used folding on the circular embellishment I made (which I can't remember the name of for the life of me) and folded over tears around the edge of the page.

Thanks for checking it out :)

Scrap the Boys January Challenge

Hey everyone!  Tomorrow I will be going back to work for the first time in 2 years so I thought I should get some scrapping in whilst I had the chance!  I had to take on the challenge at Scrap the Boys because the mood board is just gorgeous this month. 

I took inspiration from the colours and from the car and this is my layout:

Hope you like it - thanks for taking a look :)

Show Us Your Stuff January Challenge

Good morning!! Last night I got stuck into the January challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff.  They have a sketch challenge this month that looks like this:

I ended up flipping it round to suit my photos so the photos sit at the top of the page and had to change the orientation of the title to suit. This is what I came up with:

These photos are from just last month when our old girl Nellie turned 13.  My handmade items are a super star from Charm's Creations and the top two flowers are from the Scrapper's Garden.  Thank you for taking a look!
