Boutique Challenges and CC

I have been playing over at Scrapboutique this weekend as I have been fortunate enough to be able to do a bit of scrapping...my kids have been fabulous and my hubby has been home sick.

" let sleeping babies lie" is my take on the Boutique Stylist Challenges were you had to take inspiration from this picture ...

I am on a stash rehash at the moment and I found these really old basic grey papers and they where perfect so add a bit of "bring back the mesh" and I was quite please with the result.

The photo is of my son Ashton when he was tiny asleep in the car...as rare sight for him as he was not a sleeper ...hence the photo.
"Christmas Beetle" is my take on this months Stash Stompers which gives you a sketch and requires you to use up photos...now I know it appears to be only 6 on mine however the beetle photo has been layered with 3d tape ...so technically I used 7 photos...lol

The sketch for this one is a full page one but I squished mine in a bit to accommodate the photos.

The pictures are of Ashton holding his first Christmas beetle on Christmas Eve believe it or not. He was quite taken with it. Eve was not so sure...not happy with the photo exposure on this but I think it was the printing rather than my camera to be honest.
This weekend at Boutique is the cyber crop and I have managed to do 3 of the challenges... will post the blind scrap one tonight.

"our new pool" was a sketch challenge that required you to use:
summer photo/s
summer in the jounraling
Summer colours

so check to all 3 criteria...again the sketch was a full page one however I wanted to use the photo of Ash in the pool so again I downsized it.

Papers are all from my scraps...yay me!
"2 crazy dudes" was a numbers challenge set by Kate...

1 cardstock (white of course)
2 different alphas (carolees, basic grey)
3 ribbons or trims
4 circles (drawn on behind papers)
5 brads (2 lge 3 sml)
and a number on the page (in title).

So check to all the criteria on this one. Agian used my scraps for this layout...

The photos are of Ashton and Kells son, Bailey, mucking around at the Blowhole in Bicheno.
