Inspired Blueprints & WW1

Here is my layout for this months White With 1 challenge (better late than never) I have since added journaling onto the photo will post a new image once I photograph it.

The Criteria this month is:
Journal on the photo.

The photo in "your eyes dance when you smile" is of Eve on her 3rd Birthday and the best one of the day I might add as birthdays are very serious business.

Pop over to the blog and have a go at the challenge loads of fab prizes to be won.

"my whole life" is my take on Inspired Blueprints Sketch # 15.

The photos were taken by Rob on a day trip out ...not very often I get to bein the photos with my precious bundles.

" Pass the parcel" is my take on the Inspired Blueprints Sketch #14.

I have used My little shoebox papers.

The photos are of Eve and my Nephew Angus, during Eves 3rd birthday, playing pass the parcel.

"Love Cherish Adore" is my take on Inspired Blueprints sketch # 13.

The papers are some left over scraps Wends had from a GDT Kit supplied by TSE. She challenged me to do something with them and this is what I came up with. They even had Vellum in them (what the?) but I was quite pleased with the end result.

The photos are of my 2 precious kids on New Years Day (a tradition I hope to keep up every year to document their growth...if I remember)

The Sneaks have gone up on What's Old is New too so if you are after a cheap kit (really nice) pop over and check them layouts will go up on the 1st of May...

Creative Scrappers and other reveals

"My Girl" is my take on the Creative Scrappers Sketch #47

I have kept the embellishing to an absolute minimum as the sketch was quite busy for my style.

The DT reveal showed some really different takes on the sketch it is worth a trip over to the blog to have a look see...

The photo is one of my all time favourites as it shows the love my son has for his girlfriend, Ashlee. You would not believe they are onely 4 and he is already picking out the china pattern. I guess that will change soon enough as a scrappy mum I am enjoying it while it lasts.

"hold onto your heart" is my Scrap the Boys example layout for April. the layout is inspired by and advert ...pop over and check it out. I love the paint effect ...never done this before.

The photo is an oldie...of Ashton and Rob when Ash was just a bub...The little trees where from a swap.

This layout was last months Wicked Princessess Sketch. My take was a little different from the others as it was highly colour blocked (which I really struggle with)

The photos are of Ashton balancing shoes on his head...quite a mean feat in itself...he wasvery proud of himself.

Hold onto your knickers!!!

For those girls that know me be prepared for a huge shock...thats right I scrapped in PURPLE!!!

Something I never do and swore I could never come at...but....

My new kit from the Whats Old is New Kit Site was red and purple. The following 3 layouts are made up from the very affordable kit that is selling for $19-95...I have not added any of my own stash...all three layouts are purely from the kit (and there was a little left over too:)

"Living Life" has photos of me on my 35th birthday...stuffing my face with cake.
"super kids" are photos of my 2 also on my birthday with their party masks on from their party bags...playing super heros....hmmm purple:?

"you make my heart flutter" is a photo of Eve at the playgroup Christmas Party.

Who knew I had so many photos that had purple in them to be able to scrap these papers.

"what a looker" is my layout I did using the White With 1 layout criteria last month (I know slack) Navy and Stars.

If you have time and like a challenge check out this months criteria which is WHITE, CORAL and Journal in your photo.

Photos are of Ashton last year at the boardwalk ...mucking about.

Scrap the Girls challenge this month is a colour challenge. The colours are Blue, Pink, Yellow and Cream. Here is what I came up with...

"cake Addict" is a photo of Eve on her 3rd birthday (a couple of weeks ago) taking the first bite of her birthday cake...which was a penguin btw. Like mother like daughter...hmmm
