This month on What's Old is New Kit Blog I had the opportunity to play with 2 kits ...how lucky can one girl get?

This layout was also from the kit ...I l love the vintage Music Paper (which I used as my main pp)

This kit may be sold out but there are still others available and they are all fabulous value...in fact I dare say that I have never seen so much in a kit for suck a good price.

Love how all the bits coordinate and there is little thinking left to do ...lol

Scrapbook Savvy have a monthly Sketch challenge (as well as 4 other great challenges that I didn't get to this month) so if you want to have a bit of fun and do some great challenges Savvy is where I play most months. It is also has a new owner (one of my White with 1 girls) SarW or Sarah Ward...so this is a little plug for her...

"Hoot" is my take on the sketch...I really struggled with this paper (having purple on it and all) but I am happy with the outcome. For those of you that don't know Hoot is my sons nickname (since birth) and I try to include an owl on all of his layouts. So regardless of the purple I had to have this paper.

Creative Scrappers have a fortnightly Sketch and I am on the DT over there (Fantastic site and Fantastic Sketches) This is one from a month ago that I neglected to post on my blog so it is just a catch up. Will have a recent one to share soon.

"crazy kid" is a photo of Ashton messing about with those lolly teeth...he is a nutter at times and thankfully I am a scrapper so my camera is always at hand. How lucky are our kids that we scrap as we are able to capture all those antics that most mums miss...lol

Inspired Blueprints Sketch # 16

I have used Stampin' Up Papers for this layout and I have to say that they go perfectly with the photos.

I love these photos of Eve she looks so windswept...

Inspired Blueprints Sketch #18.

These photos have been at the bottom of my pile to scrap as I have just not had the right papers or challenge to do them with ...but hey presto... again the purple in the photos was throwing me...I have such a disability when it comes to scrapping that colour.

Now for some me news...I have had 2 boosts to my confidence this week

1. Scrapbooking Memories have asked me to do their Sketch Challenge (a sketch by Teressa Collins) and boy is it going to be a challenge (colour blocking)
2. Scrapbook Creations have asked me to do the 20/40/60 Challenge (with a very generous pack of product being sent to me in the mail) I have to do a layout is 40 minute (another huge challenge as I am a painfully slow scrapper...lol)

So YAY Me ...but OMG challenge!!!
