A few challenge layouts

"contented" is my take on Mel's Savvy Scraplift ...

My take is a little different to the origional by the basics are there.

I have used older Basic Grey Blush papers and a doiley I got from the Salvos. The alphas are basic Grey Choc Chips. The HS flower is stamped with a cute music background stamp by Delish...thanks to Mel for that addition to my stash...
Bon's Write Now Challenge this month was to scrap about your youngest...I chose to scrap about our youngest child...Eve.

"forever our baby" is the layout I created for this challenge. I have used older Basic Grey Blush papers and a doiley and some old book paper I got from the Salvos. The alphas are basic Grey Choc Chips.

The photo is of Eve at 6 months in a vintage dress my Mum bought her. I love the classic clothing on

bon's monthly layout competition this month had a gorgeous picture of a beadroom in soft pinks and blues with a mobile made from twigs and butterflies...sooo pretty.

"baby pink" is my take on the challenge. Papers are Making Memories and the photo is of Eve at 8 weeks.

What's Old is New Reveal

So here they are layouts created with the first kit release from What's Old is New Kit Site.

The kit I used is called Butterfly Kisses and has the following items in it:

3 x Bazzill
6 x Papers:Jenni Bowlin, Making Memories and SEI Jolie Chocolat
1/2 pack of Making Memories Sticker Alphas
1 Single Basic Grey stamp
Assorted Embelishments
Price $16.35

A bargain I might add...all the kits are under $20 so you can afford to get more than 1 and they will do a deal on the postage. I will also add that I was able to do the 3 layouts comfortably and still had stuff left over from the kit.

Creative Scrappers have revealed their Sketch #43 and here is my take on it. I have used Sassafras Lass papers...the photo is a bit lacking on this one it has been really overcast when I took it...

Also big news for me I have made the DT for a second term with Creative Scrappers so I am feeling very priveledged to be able to continue my DT spot on this fantastic site.

The other girls that made the team are:

Layout Catch Up

Scrapbook Savvy have a monthly Sketch Challenge and this is my take on the sketch. I have used Ambrosia papers and photos of my 2 eating "hot Chippies" on the boardwalk.

I love scrapping everyday (non special) events as I think they make up the story of my kids just as much (if not more) as the big events.
"a penguin" is a layout I did for the Scrap the girls challenge blog using a sketch by Liz Weber.

The papers are WeR and even thought the photos are really dark they are of a cute moment...when Eve popped on some flippers she had scavanged from the beach and decided she was a penguin. Which to her was histerical.
Creative Scrappers sketch #41 has been posted and it is a beauty.

Here is my take on it...the papers are Granola (BG) and the photos are of Ash climbing Wendy's tree out the front of her house. Check out the concentration on his

I handmade the little tree with my Marvy Giga punch and a handdrawn treetrunk.

"Round and Round" is the layout I did for round 1 of Scrapboutiques Passion 4 Fasion 2 (which I have since dropped out of)
Papers are Get Happy (CC) and photos are of my 2 on the supermarket roundabout.

Scrapbook 'n Bits had a CC and I completed a couple of the challenges ...this one was the sketch.
Papers are a combo of BG's and MM's and the photo is of Eve and I around Christmas.
love this girl ...can you tell?

Challenge 2 was to make a minimum of 2 of the same shape embellies using different techniques. I stamped into Opals on one of my hearts, and glittered in Opals another of the hearts and added a button to the 3rd heart.
Papers are MM Love story and the photo is taken on NYD of my 3 favourite people.
