Scrap the Boys October...

Hi all and happy Sunday!
Just wanted to squeeze in this challenge that I started some time ago but haven't had the chance to finish until now!
This is for the October 'Scrap the Boys' which is to use handmade embellishments.  I used some of my cute rolled flowers (the red and the blue ones)...

Papers are Echo Park and the star journalling chippy block is Stuff2Scrap ... I did die cut the middle out for something different and coloured in some of the stars....

October Scrap the Girls Challenge...

Morning all!

Well I had a chance to have a go at the October 'Scrap the Girls'   this month - first time for me.

The challenge is "Create a layout with the word ‘love’ in the title and to use ‘distressing’ on your layout."

Here is what I came up with...

This was one of those lo's that didn't come easy and I'm still not sure about it but what the heck - it is what it is!

A closie of the cluster.... don't you just love that pin!! Made by the SUPER talented Rachael Funnell  
We had a little swap and this was in my parcel - TOTALLY LOVE THEM!!

I DO love this adorable Stuff2Scrap bird and cage by Leanne Pearce - SO cute!! I have been saving this cause it's so cute! I wanted it to have a patchwork look so I covered it with a mish mash of papers and put on some doodling.

So that's it - the papers are the new sidewalk by October Afternoon.  I was SO LUCKY to win an 8x8 pad over on Felicity Wilson's   blog and not only did she send me these adorable papers but some goodies to with it - I was so THRILLED!

October Stuck Sketches Challenge...

Hi all... Just a quick share today... This layout is for the October Stuck Sketches challenge... I have been trying really hard to totally clear out my scrapping space so it's a little more 'streamlined'... it is taking FOREVER!! As I'm going through all my goodies I keep getting distracted with ideas for pages so it's taking longer than anticipated!! LOL! ANYWAY... here is my layout...

It's a bit of a mix of product but the flowers are Manor House (lg white one) and the green one is handmade. That gorgeous chippy is Stuff 2 Scrap - called Leanne's Sea Grass - LOVE IT!!

And here is the Sketch.. be sure to pop over and give it a go - it's a great sketch to work with!

Kraft It Up October...

Hi all!! Well I have had some fun today with modelling paste and the  Kraft It Up October Challenge... You could choose a few different 'styles' and I went with Monochromatic... OH WHY DID I DO THAT!!! I honestly STRUGGLE with mono layouts and this was NO different! I'm still not sure I like it but it's growing on me... I think!

Papers and buttons are the MME 'Lost and Found Two' ... I just got enough to do this lo because I wanted the yellow to go with my little girl's lion.....

The text reads: 
Your beloved Lion fell into the fire on a camping trip…. There were lots of tears (I think Mummy may have cried just a little more than you… maybe) …We thought there wouldn’t be much chance of saving him … UNTIL…. Nanny came to the rescue!! He went to the ‘hospital’ at Boonooroo and Nanny un-stuffed, washed, clipped, soaked and cleaned him and spent hours patching him back up! She waited until we came for a visit so you could help her sew the last pieces together (including a gorgeous little love heart on his hand). You said that it didn’t matter what he looked like, he is much better now because he has had so much love put into him!

Thanks for stopping by! xox

October Challenge over at Stuff2Scrap...

Hi!! Hope you all had a lovely weekend - we sure did!

I am very excited to be putting up the challenge over at Stuff2Scrap this month and it's a really fun and pretty open challenge.....

It's a 4,3,2,1 challenge!....

4 different pattern papers
3 flowers
2 tags
1 Stuff2Scrap chippy (another brand is ok too but how could you NOT scrap with the Stuff2Scrap chippies?!!)

This is just a minimum requirement... you can add more of each item and you can also add more elements - paint, mist stickers etc... it just has to have at least what is on the list.
You can create a card, layout or off the page project if you like!

I decided to do a wall hanging for my office for something a little different.....

You can check it out and load your entries here ... I would LOVE to see your creations!!
