Yesterday a bunch of us spent the whole day at Debbie’s place. We scrapped the hours away in front of her lovely warm fireplace, while torrential rain, gale force winds and hail lashed our city! It was the perfect day to stay indoors and unleash some creativity.
Thanks Debs, for hosting such a great crop. Oh, and for my very cool birthday presssie!
This month I am designing with the July kit from Paper Pesto. At yesterday’s crop I managed to get 3 layouts done for that, but unfortunately I can’t share any of them yet. Oops, I didn’t even think to take “sneak peek” photos … it’s now too dark to do that, so you’ll just have to wait for the final reveal!!
I also started my layout for Scrapbook Studio’s latest So You Think You Can Scrap (aka SYTYCS) challenge. I finished it when I got home … but I can’t share that yet, either!
I have, however, got a few old(ish) layouts that I can share:
The first two were example layouts for challenges at The Sketch Book:
Journalling reads: I am so glad I got these photos! They absolutely capture how surprised you were when you saw that you had gotten a trampoline for your 5th birthday! You had already opened your presents inside, when we told you there was something else for you. Daddy carried you outside; you had your eyes closed. When you opened them you got a huge surprise. Classic!
This is Georgia, my very cute niece. My SIL sent us some photos from Georgia’s 2nd birthday trip to the zoo. I just had to scrap this totally adorable one!
This challenge (my brainchild) was to mix up different brands of patterned paper, and to use colours that don’t necessarily match.
I always love the result when I do this!
These next two layouts were for the previous two SYTYCS challenges:
THANK YOU (Heidi’s style)
Journalling reads: Dear Mum, I don’t think I could repay you for all the things you did to help make my wedding day so perfect. I know I didn’t always show my appreciation during the stressful months of planning and organising. But you did so much, and I am so grateful. I don’t know if I ever thanked you properly, and words are hard to find anyway. All I can say is “thank you”. So much.
COUSINS (Lisa’s style)
This is my beautiful sister, Leah, with our gorgeous cousin, Ashleigh. I think you can tell they are related?
Well, that’s all from me tonight. Keep an eye on the Paper Pesto blog, as my layouts will be appearing on there over the next few days!
