Well the Cybercrop for the scraplounge certainly came around quick this month. I never realised but there was suppose to be an Easter theme. Opps. I have done 1 layout with the Easter theme, but the rest are done as general layouts. Here is my first layout using the beautiful Kaisercraft paper range Madame Boutique Collection. I have had this paper in my scrapping bag for awhile now but it was just so inspiring when I dragged it out. Loved how the papers worked on my layouts.
The Scraplounge challenge was to use a different shape base other then the standare 12x12, to use a edge punch and to make handmade embellishments. I made my own flowers and bunting. Just love how this layout came together. I also love the photo of my mum and my eldest son Donovan. I have scrapped with black and white photos for ages, so I really loved playing with that on my layout, I also think black and white looks so nice on this paper.
This is the sketch designed by Storm on the Scraplounge. I loved doing my flowers and I also used a stamp for my leaves.
This is my Easter layout, this is of Cody eating his chocolate Easter Bunny. I think that is all he did that day was eat chocolate, maybe that is why he was a little out of control on that day. LOL
This is my challenge for the scraplounge Cybercrop. It was to use yellow on your layout, use a mini photo, and to use paint somewhere on your layout. I decided to go for a bit of a different look. I just used some scrap paper that I had to do this layout. I also used some stuff out of the Mad about Scrappin challenge pack, it was the non slip mat, I used it as a type of stamp to give my background paper a bit of texture. I love that pack, and I have used so many elements out of it on layouts.
