Let's Get Sketchy - Sketch 15 Sep 2017

Hello again!

And this middle of the month, Let's Get Sketchy has a really beautiful sketch for their mid-month challenge! Here it is:

Isn't this just fabulous! I love this one... and here is my take on the challenge using a Theresa Collins range that I have had for sometime:
It's hard to believe this photo was taken 8 years ago when my daughter was just 12 years old, and this weekend she is turning 21 ... wow doesn't time fly. Scary isn't it! I love this range of papers, and I have had them for a number of years - glad I was finally able to put them to use.

This is a really great sketch - and I would love to see your interpretation of this - why don't you join us, create something and pop it up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog - click here for the details and check the rest of the DT team and there gorgeous creations too.

Till the 1st of October for the next sketch reveal, have a great week :)

Colorful Creations - 15 September Reveal

Hello there!

Colorful Creations has a great theme for this middle of the month reveal. And it's all about the weather!! Create something that indicates your favourite kind of weather .... here is my layout:

 
 We had only been living in New Zealand just short of a year when we had a good dumping of snow. Living in an area of New Zealand that doesn't get the snow in winter, this was quite an event - and coming from South Africa, not something we are accustomed to either - so what do you do when you get to experience it for the first time? You play in it - just like my dear husband here! I love the snow - although a few of my NZ friends would very much disagree with me on this one.

Come and take part in this challenge - Tell on your layout your favourite kind of weather. :-) Is it stormy and thunderous weather, sunshine, rain, snow...etc… be creative! And pop it up in the Colorful Creations blog - would love to see what your favourite weather is too. Click here to go to the Colorful Creations blog.

Colorful Creations - 1 September - one word challenge

And it's a new challenge at Colorful Creations - and this 1 September reveal is a one Word challenge. The words for this month are SCHOOL, PRIMARY COLORS, FUN and PLAY.  We had to incorporate these words into the challenge, and it could be in the way of the title, picture, pattern paper, etc… let creativity be your guide, as I would love to see what you come up with on their blog!

Here is my take on the challenge:
I have incorporated the word FUN into my layout. This paper is a very old range of Bo Bunny that I dug out of my stash. This photo is of my daughter and her friends, who had attended a Cluedo evening. They had to dress up. Here is one of their silly moments having such fun that  night.

Hope that the words for this challenge will encourage you to take part in the challenge!

Thanks for visiting!

Let's Get Sketchy - 1 September Reveal

1st of the month means a new sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy! I cannot believe how fast this year is going ... September already! Here is the 1st of September sketch:


And again I took a twist on the sketch and turned it side ways:
Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

One of my favourite pictures of my son, taken at Lake Clearwater in August 2012. It had snowed and we took a drive out to look at the snow. We had such a lovely family day that day!

I have used an Authentique range here. The cogs and the title are chipboard which I have inked.

Hope you enjoy the sketch ... and would be great to see your take on the challenge up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog!

Thanks for visiting!

White ... with 1: September 2017 reveal

Hello there ...

For those of us in the southern hemisphere - happy 1st of September, happy spring day! The weather outside says quite the opposite though!

And ... as it's the 1st of the month, it's White .. with 1 reveal day ...and the colour with white is SOUL PEA

I decided to do things a little differently this month, and use the colour for the background with my elements all in white. And here is my take on the monthly challenge:


I love this colour for this month. Come and play along with us! Would love to see your challenges up on the White ... with 1 blog :)

I have use two different types of stencils for the background. The chipboard frame and title are covered in white liquid pearls. I have also used some white stickers in the background.

Look forward to seeing your layouts up on the White ... with 1 blog this month!

Thanks for popping along!

Yes - the theme for the 15th is fussy cutting! And here is my take on the challenge

This layout has been created using a Heartfelt Creations collection. The flower vine is two flower vines which I fussy cut from two different papers and then layered on top of each other. The bird is also fussy cut, as is the fence :)

Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Aug reveal - It's All about the Girls

Hello there!

It's Let's Get Sketchy 15th of the month reveal  - a great follow on from the 1st of August sketch - all about the boys and of course, now the 15th is all about the girls! A great sketch duo - have a look 1st of August sketch - and now the 15th of Aug is a perfect match. Here is the sketch:
And to match these beautiful girlie colours:
 Aren't these just beautiful colours? I drew my inspiration off the pinks and blues. Here is my take on the sketch and the colours:

 I have used a very light blue card stock, and then stenciled some text paste in the background behind the photo and the bottom right corner of the page. Then I sprayed the background with pink ink and also rubbed on pink chalk. These papers are from Cocoa Vanilla Studio Love Always range.
Perfect colours for the mood board I thought! Come and play along with Let's Get Sketchy :)

Thanks for popping along - until next time with the Let's Get Sketchy reveal for 1st September.
