Something to share

Actually I have a few things to share!
Yes I managed to get more than one page done, woohoo!!!
So I have been watching everyone getting in to the mixed media thing, and loving it :)
So I decided to have a go, well another go. I have tried before but it ended up looking like a layout on canvas instead of cardstock!!??
So here it is my newest attempt :

Miss Lily loves it and it is now proudly in her room <3 font="font">

Next are a couple of challenges I managed to have a go at:

The first one is from the Orange Paperie & Co. You had to take inspiration from this photo:

And here is my layout and a couple of close ups :)

And this one is sketch #220 at Creative Scrappers:

SFS Sketch

Hi :)
I managed to get the August sketch at Scrapbooking from Scratch done last week. I promise my layout is based on the sketch although it did tend to take on a mind of its own.... I used a Heavenly Heart from Charms Creations, so now I have two chances to win :)

Ive also included in this post my take on last months sketch as well because I dont think I ever got around to sharing that with you?

I hope you like xx

A little bit of Scrapping

Hi :)
Just like my title says, I've managed a little bit of scrapping lately, not near as much as I would like, but I guess that's the way life gets?

The first one is the August Quote challenge over at Savvy.  This quote would suit any type of photo I think "it seems like just the other day"; I chose one of me and my eldest daughter Lily. I admit to being guilty of rarely scrapping a page with me in it! I am shocking at having my photo taken, eyes are ALWAYS CLOSED, daft look on my face, blah, blah, blah. Feel free to leave any tips on how to improve it!! I am pretty sure it comes with my lack of confidence, but anyways that's a whole different matter!!!

This next one is my attempt at the Kraft It Up Challenge, but I'm thinking I might do this again?? This month its all about layers, which I love doing, but this didn't quite come together like in my head....Don't get me wrong I still like my page, but you know how sometimes you think of A and it ends up like B??? IYKWIM!!

Both layouts are using kits from Scrapbooking from Scratch. I have so many kits in my stash that are still unopened, ssshhhh don't tell Ben, but when Peta had her birthday sale, how can you resist 40% off?????
