Scrapbook Boutique November challenge layout "Sweet Tooth"

Hi Scrappy Friends

It's taken a little time, but with so much Christmassy goodness
around, I've finally found some Christmas spirit.
It sure did help to go on a little christmas supply shopping spree.
I'm stalking the postie waiting for some new goodies to play with.
With that in mind, I thought I'd better use some of last years papers!!

Today I'm sharing a layout inspired by Scrapbook Boutique.

My Layout "Sweet Tooth"

These pictures are from Christmas Eve 2014. Master Z sharing a chocolate with his Pop.

This cupcake is the inspiration.

I loved the combination of red and green with a touch of gold.

Thanks for visiting.

Hello Scrap Friends

I'm pleased to bring you my Off the Rails Scrapbooking

Here are some close ups:

 When I looked at this moodboard with the upcycle theme I was instantly
drawn to the bottles!

DLish Scraps November challenge + Just add paper kit scrapbooking layout

Hi Scrap Friends

So pleased to be sharing a layout using the November Just Add paper kit from

My layout "The Look" 

I've used the sketch (scroll down) as inspiration.
The black cardstock got a layer of modelling paste while the white paper got a
layer of black gesso through a stencil. 


I've tucked my journalling beneath the photo in the tag pocket.
I chose this photo because I love "The Look" on DH face when he see's me coming down the aisle

The after five inspiration is to die for and I instantly wanted to use one of our wedding photos.
Our theme was black and white with a touch of red.
So pretty much everything in our album is scrapped monochromatic.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Amanda has in store for next months JAP kit.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Scrapping Clearly Sketch Challenge - November layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Don't you just love the warmer weather and longer days?
Feels like there are more hours to spend scrapbooking!

Today I'm pleased to share a layout I created using the
November inspirations sketch.

My Layout "Shake"

Here is the inspiration sketch.

Straight away I was inspired by the circle and wanted to incorporate them into my layout!
I've created this layout by using watercolours on the background
and then layering my embellishments around the photos!

Mystical Scrapbooks November Blind Scrap challenge layout

Hi Scrap Friends

Today's share is something a little different for me.
I've been seeing "Blind Scraps" everywhere and when I saw that
had one as their November challenge I wanted to give it a go.

My Layout "Kitty Love"

I've used papers and embellishments from the Basic Grey Barista range.

You'll have to stop by Mystical Scrapbooks to check out the blind scrap details.

I'm going to have to give the "Blind Scrap" another chance as this time round I didn't love it.
I found the balance of instruction vs open to interpretation a bit challenging.
But I'm not giving up.

Thanks for visiting.
