A Christmas layout

Oh oh, I found a heap of layouts that I haven't shown on my blog, so I thought it is time to keep updating you with some of the layouts I have been doing. I must admit I did go through a stage of not doing any scrapping, not because of the lack of wanting, but just not being able to get any time to do any. But I have my scrapping mojo on and have certainly got back into it. I am a massive fan of the bunting, they just seem to fill a spot. I also love the bingo cards, I found from a shop, which I generally shop on facebook on Flog it Friday's, Mad about Scrappin these massive Bingo cards, they are just so cute, not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but love them and I am sure they will come in very handy in my next few layouts.

Well I hope you all have a great Monday. Fingers crossed I get all my house work done and can sneak in a layout.......Untill next time.

Scraplounge CyberCrop

Well it is that time again, this weekend the scraplounge had it's awesome cybercrop. I love seeing what people come up with, when they are given the same criteria and sketch. Love how everyone interprets things so very differently.

The first challenge was to have 3 hearts on a layout and the word relationships, so this is what I came up with. I had so much fun doing this layout, as I am getting into the mists so I had a bit of a play with that, not that you can see much of it. I also adore this paper range, I just love it when paper designers have the papers that just seem to go.

This is the second challenge for the Cybercrop, it is to do a layout using song lyrics for a title. My niece had come up and stayed with me for a few days and to thank me she bought me these gorgeous flowers. so my title was 'you don't bring me flowers anymore' but in brackets I wrote but my niece does. I was having a bit of a dig at my husband, though surprisingly after my niece bought this it must have played on my hubby's mind because he did buy me some flowers. So might have to do a few more layouts like this in the future. LOL

This is the sketch for the Scraplounge Cybercrop. I created this sketch, my first attempt to do it on the computer, so I will apologise for it not being perfect. But honestly I don't think I did to bad

This is my layout that I came up with, with the sketch. I kept this layout a bit simple, but loved using a few mini prints, having lots of photos on a layout isn't my strong point, but I love it when I do do one and pull it off. This layout has photos of when we were in Perth down at Hillary's. The boys had a ball playing in the water there, We were there forever, hours and hours. I must admit I enjoyed watching the boys play and having some piece and quiet, plus loads of photo opportunities.

Mad about Scrappin challenge

Well I certainly have my mojo on at the moment, I have already done Mad About Scrappins Challenge for this month. I LOVE this challenge, you have to use a pattern paper as your backing, strips of paper and a one word title. I thought this challenge is definitely one of my favourites. I really loved how this layout turned out, I am really enjoying doing minimilistic layouts, and I love using just a 6x4.
This photo was of Cody when we were in Perth, it was a warm day and he was sitting at a bench screwing up his cute little face. He is just so adorable. I can't believe he is 3. They just grow up way to fast.
