Here's my sample:

I took inspiration form all the layers of ribbon.
I love how this turned out. A rather simple project, but a tad fiddly at times.
Don't you just love the babe in the frame? This is Eli, our youngest now 19 months, taken by a professional photographer at the hospital when Eli wasn't even 24 hours old.

Stuck?! April 1st

I just love the sketches over at Stuck?! I just don't play with them often enough.
But I was after a challenge the other day so thought I'd play along this month.

Here's the sketch:

and my take:



I have used Crate Papers Toy Box range. I am loving printing on masking tape too. It's not a new thing on layouts, but I am only just starting to play around with it.

April Kraft It Up!!!

Thought I'd better play along with Kraft It Up! This month. It's been a while.

This month was a number challenge:
1 piece of Kraft cardstock
2 photos smaller than 6x4
3 different Alphas
4 different patterned papers
5 different embellishments

Here's my take:



It's all there the 5 different embellies are cardstock stickers (the red strip and 'play' sticker), die cut shape (vintage boy), Lovelybugs Bits n Bobs button, October Afternoon Dad card, and a Purple Pumpkin doily, there's actually a 6th with the bull dog clip.

I have used Crate Papers Toy Box range for this layout. It's one of my faves right now and goes perfectly with Kraft.

SBT50 Monthlies!

I just loved the monthlies this April at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia!!
So much so they are all ready done BEFORE the Cyber starts!!!

First up this month was Vickis Challenge.
Ther criteria are:
~ single photo
~ include a tree
~ the word 'together'

Her is my take:



I used the new Echo Park PLayground range that I had only just picked up that day!
I painted some of the background with white paint to tone down the hearts a little around the photo but it didn't turn out too well.
The stickers and alphas are also from the range.
I cut the grass from another Playground pp and added some twine.
Using green and orange to go eith the title
I used a stamp I recieved from Amanda as a RAK for picking one of her swap themes.


Next up was Sues Sketch challenege.

Here's the sketch:
Isn't it a great sketch?!!! This is Sues first time at making her own sketch and I think she's totally rocked it! Just love it.
There were no other criteria for this sketch.


Here's my take:

Again I couldn't resists using EP's Playground range.
To me the shape behind the photo screamed clouds. So I made a cloud shape form some pp, and masked it to help colour the white cardstock a little.
I added in some Purple Pumpkin and other embellies too.



The third challenge for the month is Ants Random challenge.
The criteria are:
~ Randomness.....just throw it all on the page and see what happens....crooked titles, uneven stitching, splattered paint....all that kind of stuff
~ I want you title to be LARGE. No tiny titles for this one...the title should be a feature of your page.
~ Paint - I want to see paint.

Here's my take:

I just love this photo of Ethan 'smiling'. Such a squishy face.
It was perfect to go with these Basic Grey Oliver pp's and embellies which was fab as they scream messy and random.
Originally I punched some circles from matching pp, screwed them up then randomly glued them down on the base pp. I then painted over them. But as the grey paint isn't very transparent it's hard to see, but it does add some texture.
I distressed the edge of the photo. Added lots of random stickers and chippie shapes from the range.
Cut part of the title (you) form some matching pp to make the title BIG



The final challenge for the month is a Dare Challenge. This is a fun challenge where we get the opportunity to pick the four required criteria.
The criteria this month were:
~ Stars
~ Paper tearing
~ Glitter or bling
~ Can not be square

Here's my take:

I thought I'd take the opportunity and make this into an 18th birthday card for my step son.
I used Echo Park (again) Little Boy range.
Stars are on the pp and the Martha Stewart punched border
Paper tearing on the green pp too.
Glitter or bling - I added some red pearls to two corners.
Cannot be square - nope it's not!


The monthly challenges are due at midnight the last day of the month so you have plenty of time to get your entries in. There are some awesome prizes up for grabs.

Don't forget the Cyber starts tomorrow night 8pm (SA time) too!!! And Lime Tree Creations will be sponsoring!!!!
