Kraft it up Sketch challenge

Well WOW was this an interesting challenge, Kraft it up site has a challenge where you are not allowed to use pattern paper. ARGHHHHHhh at first I thought no way I am not doing that, but then I started thinking how i have been really keen to use materials on my layouts, so I took a plunge, I have used that muslin wrap material I really enjoyed this layout, and it was easier then I had thought. Thanks Kraft it up for making me think out of the box.

Purple Pumpkin Sketch

On the weekend I went to a scrapbooking retreat, I just love going on scrapbooking camps, it is so nice to get a weekend of scrapping, I was really happy with all the layouts I got done, this is one of them and it is using Purple pumpkin, it is the sketch on Purple Pumpking site, loved it. Some sketches are better then others and this has to be one of my favourite sketches that I have done. keep an eye out, I have loads more layouts to put up. I have been a bit slack doing things on my blog, I have just been so busy, and done alot of scrapping.

Mothers Day Scrapping Storm

Well I always have a bit of a break down when it comes around to Mothers Day and my mum's birthday, what do you give someone that has everything. This year I wanted to do a bit of a handmade theme, but silly me leaves things to the last minute. I kept thinking that is ok, i have tomorrow, but things seem to keep popping up and before I know it it is the night before. My middle son Jordy had been invited to a birthday party, so here I walk in after taking him to his best friends birthday party at 7.00pm at night, and think Oh my goodness. I was so exhausted from the day, so I did some of the clock, and did the card Mothers Day morning. So take a sticky of what I came up with at the last minute
My Mothers Day card, I don't think I am a great card maker. Some people do the most fantastic cards, but I must admit I was really proud of myself to whip this one up. I love these Forever Friends bears. They are my favourite cards, so when I saw that you can buy stuff to make your own I was so excited

This is my clock that I made for my mum, loved this Kaiser paper range, the colours are just so pretty. I had to keep it simple because I left it to the last minute. I would have liked to put some rub ons with quotes but I didn't have any in my stash. (Don't you hate that!!!)

Well, I am glad that thought process is over for another year, my Mum's birthday is in September so I better get thinking what to give her for then. This time if I was going to make something I won't leave it to the last minute, well I would try not to....
