Show Us Your Stuff June Challenge

Another month nearly over..... and there is nothing like a last minute challenge.  I spent some time creating earlier today, but my camera battery decided to go flat when I wanted to take some pictures. It has taken me all afternoon and evening to get back to it. But I made it :)  Here is the inspiration board from Show Us Your Stuff:

I took my main inspiration from the cream, blue and orange candles and it being a picture of my son all rugged up in winter and this is what I came up with:

Scrap the Girls

Good morning!! Yesterday I was at a Scrap Day and they had a cool little pop up shop and I managed to buy a paper pack that suited this Scrap the Girls challenge so well.

This is my layout:

Scrap the Boys June Challenge

Good morning

This is my second attempt at the Scrap the Boys Challenge for June.  I was unhappy with my first attempt, but when I got a new stencil in the mail last week, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. First of all this is the sketch:

I used my new stencil called Short Circuit with some texture paste on my cardstock and then built it up from there.  This is how it turned out:

Charm's Creations

Good morning.  Yesterday I had a go at the Charm's Creations June/July Mid monthly Challenge which looks like this:

PicMonkey Collage

I chose the middle row - washi, somthing new and resin.  This is my layout:

I used three types of washi tape, my something new is a Charm's Creation Butterfly Heavenly Heart and I used some resin flowers up in the top left hand of the photo. Thanks so much for taking the time to take a look!

123 Challenge Blog

Good evening!  I started to work on this layout about a week but I just hadn't had a chance to finish it off until last night.  This is what the 123 Challenge Blog challenge for June looks like:

123 Challenge

This is my layout:

My title is 'Practically Family' and I have used blue stitching and gold thickers, a mesh material, a gold clip and gold and white arrow by Charm's Creations.  Thanks for checking it out!!

D-lish Scraps June Challenge

Hi!!  I went to the D-lish Scraps online store on the 2nd of June to buy a Just Add Paper kit to discover that they were all sold out.  I really kicked myself for not getting on there sooner!  Its due to this very awesome mood board that it sold out so quickly:

It's lucky I have a giant stash of D-lish Scraps!! And lots of colours too.  So I went through my stash to find some yumminess to use and this is what I came up with:

Thank you for taking the time to take a look!!

Kraft+ June Challenge

As always Kraft+ has put up an extra awesome inspiration board for the June challenge which looks like this:

When I first looked at it I thought cool, but I wonder if I have anything with animal print in my stash?  I literally went through everything but the only thing I could find was a piece of zebra print ribbon.  So I went on Charm's Creations and bought one of her super cool Zebra Butterfly Heavenly Hearts and I also went to Spotlight and bought a fat quarter of tiger print material which I used to make the circle shaped yoyo flowers which I topped with veneer hearts.  I also used some veneer circles and a picture of my Daugher in monkey print PJs to finish the page off.  I called it 'I love your face' and this is what it looks like:

This is a close up of one of my yoyo flowers:

Thanks so much for dropping by and taking a look :)

Sketchabilities #140

Good afternoon, its been a while since I have had a chance to get on here and post some pics but a late night last night meant that I got my hands dirty and had some much needed scrap therapy.  I worked on Sketchabilities #140 which has been sitting in my in progress pile for the last week or so.  I had put together the background and put the texture paste (which I mixed with some silver paint) and had the photo ready but the rest had to wait. Unfortunately, its a bit late for the challenge but I enjoyed it all the same :) This is what the sketch looked like:

This is the layout I created:

I hope you like it - thanks for checking it out :)

White with 1 June Challenge

Good evening.  I was really on a roll this morning before I crashed out and slept all afternoon!  I love the colour from the White with 1 challenge this month which is:

I created this layout:

This colour is just screaming out for a beach photo.  This is my eldest son fossicking in the rock pools.  Thank you for coming by and checking it out :)

Stuck?! 1 June Sketch

Good evening!! I hope you are enjoying the start of your long weekend!  We have all been sick with colds over the last week or so, so I am hoping to have a weekend of hibernation :)  And scrapping, of course.  Earlier today I got a chance to work on the sketch from Stuck?! challenges and this is what the sketch for June 1 looks like:

As I mention every month, I love sketch challenges!  I don't have to worry about things being balanced or looking right.  I can just concentrate on colour and photos and having fun.  This is my layout:

My boys had their school disco last Friday night and they had such a ball dancing with their mates, so I had to scrap these gorgeous moments!  Thank you for checking it out :)

Off the Rails June Mood Board

Good evening!  I finally have a few moments of peace as my kids are all finally asleep. I got some scrappy time today, due to being sick with a cold.  Its to be expected with the horrible -7 & -5 mornings we have had here in Canberra most of this week.  I am so not a winter person.  But it is good reason to stay warm and scrap.  I started off with the Off the Rails mood board which looks like this:

I love the picture of the shop with the really out there colours.  It was a good inspiration that is for sure and this is the layout I came up with:

I used the fantastic colours and I also did a family theme.  This is my Nanna, my Auntie and Uncle and both of my sons.  Thanks for coming by and checking it out :)
