Easter Scrapps..

Over the Easter break I decided to catch up on some challenges. I started first with
http://onceuponasketchblog.blogspot.com/ You had to do scrap a LO using their sketch provided and you also had to journal about why you chose this photo. I scrapped a picture of my son Jay and I on my wedding day I so love this photo.
Here is what the finished LO looks like.

I then worked on the two April sketches from http://stucksketches.blogspot.com I loved these two sketches, they were easy to work with and I really like the finished product.

This is the first sketch, these are my sister Kirsty's children. I love the faces that they are all pulling whilst they are eating their icecream.

The next LO is about Baxter "One tough kid" and that he is. He's currently in a wheel chair and he's legs are in plaster, but that's no bothering him. Well not that he shows it. He still has a smile on his face. When I was recently at Spotlight I saw this new kaiser paper and I knew it would be perfect to use on Baxter's page.
My last and final LO is on Eve once again. I love this picture with her and her dummy. Gee she loves her dummy, but I think most kids at 6 months do as well.

This morning I went and watched my girls march in the ANZAC march in my home town of Bealiba, I was so proud of my girls. I took some pictures,so I hope to achieve some more scrapping today if the kids co-operate. I hope you all have a nice ANZAC day and remember the fallen soldiers.

Today's Tuesday and it was a Scrappy day...

I had a heap of photos that I wanted to scrap, so today I scrapped 4 LO's. The first one is from a kit that I won from Scrappykat...Lexie sent me this kit, it was so much fun to work with and it put me out of my comfort zone as i wouldn't normally scrap with these colours.. But I really like what I scrapped, thanks Lexie for this challenge.


Eve having fun in her bath, she really loves her bath time.

This LO is of Baxter and Eve.. Eve went to see Baxter in hospital whilst he's in his springs and slings, as he has Perthies disease that affects his hips..He's now in a broom stick cast and in a wheel chair. This has not let him down as he's still smiling.. He's such a brave boy. This LO is for a challenge at "Scrapbiz", you had to have weaving on your LO.. I wove the circle and I hand stitched around it.. I really like the way it finished up.

This LO is for the Friday night sketch challenge at "Scrappycat".. I am really enjoying doing sketches at the moment. Brooke, Winnie and Eve are also photogenic that's hard not too scrap them.

Eve is such a dribble puss, it wont be long and I will be doing LO's with her having teeth. This LO is for a sketch challenge at "Scrapbiz" I love the colours that I have chosen they all tie in together.
I have also been really good today, as I have cleaned up my mess as I have gone along. I may even try to get another LO finished tonight.

Loving Holidays, I can get creative...

As it's my second day of the holidays I thought I would do a bit of scrapping, I finished up doing 4 Layouts' so as you can imagine I now have a big mess. Well now the big question is do I clean it up or keep scrapping?

Here is a LO from http://scraphappykat.blogspot.com/, they put up a step by step challenge,it was so easy and I love the end result. This challenge was all about negative space, I will definately be doing more layouts with this theme. I like the minimal look.

This is Immie my niece in a fairy costume, looking real cute. This photo was taken for I do I do bridal magazine, Immie was a flowergirl in one of the bridal parties. She had a wonderful day as they had a picinic theme and she got to eat lots of lollies. this was all done in the name of fashion.

Here is Baxter my nephew looking like a real cool dude, this LO is from www.scrapz.biz/ this is the blind scrap. baxter, id such a cool dude he loves to dress trendy, he especially loves these hats.

Gods Angel "Ryelyn"

My darling Godson rang me yesterday to tell me that his darling son Ryelyn had passed away in his sleep. It broke my heart to hear the news and to hear the pain in his voice. I just don't know how you can get over something like this. Today I created a canvas and I also made an album for Ben and Calesha to celebrate the life of their child Ryelyn Michael John Wilson.

Mini album of Ryelyn's short life..

The canvas ans easel for them.

My Little Babushka Girl...

Over at http://www.artisticdocument.com/index.php For April Terri has set a challenge to use up some of your chippie alphas[and don't we all have a lot of these floating around in our stash]. First of all I glued all the chippie alphas on to some black cs and then when that dried I painted the page in black paint. I gave the page a couple of coats of the paint and when it dried, I painted gel medium over it too give it a shine.
After that was all finished, I started to create my LO. Yet again the topic was Eve, she is such a cutie, how could you not use her as your topic.

Now this is definitely the last LO for the day as I have a huge mess to clean up, this is the worst part of scrapbooking.

Three LO's for a sunny Tuesday..

Today has been really busy for me, I have done three LO's. I am enjoying having the time to do some scrapbooking, normally my time is limited and I don't get time to scrap. Here are the LO's that I have created

This LO is from the sketch challenge over at http://www.scrapz.biz/ the theme for this is Melancholy. My LO is about my sister Melinda my rock! When I am feeling blue I ring her and she puts a smile on my face.

This LO is from the themed challenge over at http://challengeheaven.ning.com/ The criteria was that you had to use a candid picture and twine. I have both of those requirements on my LO of my youngest nephew "Baxter". He is a real cool cat.

This LO is from the Sketch challenge also from Challenge Heaven. This is Baxter little sister Imogen, she looks so cute in her gorgeous pink dress and he amazing hairdo. My sister Kirsty, really should of became a hairdresser as she has such a flair with hair.

Blind Scrap

I completed this blind scrap over at http://www.scrapz.biz/.I came across this site last week when I was at home. I was looking for a kit to purchase. I purchased the March kit I was rapt with all the goodies that came in the pack and it was only $30.00. I now need to create some LO's out of this pack. The pack for April is really good as well, think I will be purchasing this as well.

This is my second eldest daughter Jacana she is deep in thought, this photo was taken on Boxing day last year.

Once upon a sketch..

I was surfing the net today and I stumbled across this blog http://onceuponasketchblog.blogspot.com/ with there challenge you have to include your handwriting on your LO and it the length of your hand writing needs to be 25 words or more. As I struggle to include handwriting on my LO's I decided I would give this challenge a go. This is how I interpreted the sketch and I didn't struggle as much as I thought I would with including my handwriting on my LO. Eve is the highlight of my LO yet again.. I have decided to make a 12x12 album for Brooke and then each year I can add more LO's to it.

LO from challenges at Challenge Heaven ....

Over at http://challengeheaven.ning.com/ I completed the Ebony and Ivory Challenge – Black OR White with a pastel colour,Criteria: Pearls, brads or gems. I chose to use white and pastel pink. The pink paper is from the new babies range from Kaiser, I also used the doiley and the pearls from their new range. Yet again I have used Eve as my subject. I love this shot of Eve and Brooke. Pop over to Challenge Heaven and have a look at there other challenges

Some scrappy time.

For the last 2 weeks I have sick with whopping cough, so whilst I have had time off work I have done a bit of scrapping. I think I have found my mojo, I have really enjoyed doing some scrapping. I really need to put more time away for myself and scrap more regularly.

This LO comes from doing the sketch at "http://scraphappykat.blogspot.com" , My niece Eve is becoming a feature for most of my scrapping of late. My sister Brooke keeps putting these photos on FB and I keep down loading them and using them on my LO's. How could you not scrap such a cutiepie.

This LO is from "http://www.artisticdocument.com/index.php" ,Jody set the challenge and the criteria is to * must have at least 2 patterned papers
* must have at least 2 forms of distressing
* must have at least 2 pieces of chipboard
* must have at least 2 flowers
* must have at least 2 different alphas
This is my darling niece Eve doing her fish face, she is such a cutie..I have added all the requirements to this LO.

Here is my friend Jackie and I at the yr 11 formal, we had such a great night.

This LO is from the March Cybercrop, blind scrap. Marie held this challenge, the LO has a real simple design, but it looks amazing. I was lucky enough to win this challenge, the colours all blended in together to make the LO stand out.

This is a picture of Jacana and her friend Kirsten,I took it before we went too a friends 40th birthday. The girls looked gorgeous all dressed up.

I hand to down load Jacana's pictures onto my computer, I loved these pictures of her joking around with the glasses. So like any scrapper I had to put them on a LO.

When we were on holidays in QLD last year the girls cracked it as I took too many picture of them. I love these photos of there attitude..

This is my darling niece Eve, I got the idea for this LO from Challenge Heaven, it was from their March challenge list.
