Life.Paper.Scrapbook - August Sketch Challenge using Kaisercraft "Brothers"

I recently picked up the Kaisercraft Be-You-tiful range and I'm loving it at the moment.

The papers are almost so good you don't really need to add a lot. 

I decided to use them for the Life.Paper.Scrapbook August Sketch Challenge.

I love this photo of my boys hanging out in their dinosaur dressing gowns on a cold winter morning.

My Twins - A personal share

I've been neglecting my blog recently because everyone in my family has been sick. I've finally grabbed some time to head into my craft space and decided I'd share a recent page that I completed for my local Scrapbooking monthly challenge.

We are given the purple stripey paper and the orange and black ribbons. It's always super fun to see how different scrappers, given the same materials can create totally different pages. 

I'm super proud of this layout and display it happily in my home.

"Pikelets" - A Scrap Around the World August Mood Board layout

I often wish that my layouts could be as detailed in involved as some of the layouts that win on SATW, but I've accepted that my style is more crisp and clean.

This months Scrap Around the World August Mood Board is a bit challenging for me. I found it quite feminine. With a house full of men can be a bit daunting!!

I was inspired by the aqua colour of the dress which immediately caught my eye. I then paired this with the brown of the cork board. I ended up with a layout of three's.

White, Aqua and brown cardstock, Stampin-Up in "Soft Suede", CTMH Babycakes paper, Plasters tape, Twine, Kaisercraft "Bow and Arrow", Gesso, Adirondack Color Wash "Espresso", Porta Craft chipboard glitter decal, Rosie's Studio pearls, Cricut cartridge "Boys will be boys"
