Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Feb Challenge

Hello again!

And here we are again - the middle of the month and yes you guessed it - Let's Get Sketchy mid-month challenge is up on their blog. Here is the sketch for 15 Feb 2018:
And here is my take on the sketch:
Photo booths tend to be the in thing at parties today - so of course I couldnt resist scrapping these lovely photos of the girls having some fun with some of the props for the photos. Think they are super cool!

I have used paper from the Freckled Fawn range. I think I have had this in my stash for a wee while now, and it is actually part of a Christmas Range (hehehe!).

Pop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog and have a look at the wonderful interpretations of the sketch by the rest of design team. I love how one sketch can be produce so many different layouts!

Hope to see your layout up on the blog!

Bye for now,
M

Let's Get Sketchy - 1 February Reveal

Hello again

And me again - this time with the 1 February sketch reveal for Let's Get Sketchy! Gosh was January a fantastic month at LGS - there were so many amazing entries - it was wonderful to see. I love how everyone interprets the sketches and the layouts created - wow! Well without further ado - here is the sketch for 1 Feb:


And here is my take on the sketch featuring my gorgeous nieces:

These are my two beautiful nieces, whom I haven't seen for a few years being that we live 11000km away. They are much older now 15 and 11 now. 

Well I look forward to seeing your take on the sketch .....

White with 1 - February reveal

Hello all

Not sure what happened to January - it went so fast, and suddenly it is February - phew!
Really does seem to get faster as one ages, or is it better to say that time flies when you are having fun? I think  I prefer the latter!

Of course with the new month, means a new challenge over at White ... with 1 ... and this month is the gorgeous SIZZLING PINK 



Pretty, pretty!

And if that colour is not enough to tempt you, White with 1 has also included a sketch

The sketch is of course entirely optional!

So here is my layout for the month using the sketch:

This colour was so perfect for my daughters last year at school formal ball - matched perfectly. And so did her finger nails and I just love this photo.

I have sprayed some pink ink in the background, and used some of my project life cards for the background. There is also some chippie in there which I have coloured with pink ink. 

I just love what the rest of the team have put together too - pop on over to the White .. with 1 blog and have a look. 
I look forward to seeing your amazing creations up on the blog this month ...

Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Jan sketch reveal

Well we are half way through January - is it just me, but does each year just seem to go faster and faster?
As it is the 15th of the month - it is Let's Get Sketchy reveal for the next sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch using the gorgeous Pion range - Theodore and Bella:
I just love this range -  and my precious daughter who was about 13/14 months old in these pictures - and who now turns 22 this year! Can't believe they were ever so little. I will always remember people telling me to enjoy the moments with my kids as littlies because they grow up so quickly - and boy there is nothing truer said. In a blink of an eye they are young adults ready to leave the house ad spread their wings.

I certainly hope to see your layouts up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog - click here and all the details on how to enter are on the blog (and have a look at the gorgeous layouts created by the rest of the design team).

See you soon!

Let's Get Sketchy - Jan 2018

Happy New Year - hope your year ahead is a good one!

1 January - and Let's Get Sketchy has a lovely new sketch for the 1st of the month reveal:

I went with a masculine layout, I laid out the papers as per the sketch, and used a dusty attic chipboard zip to make it look like I was pulling the paper open with the zip. I used a stencil and ink to make the splash and stain marks.
Pop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog and have a look at the rest of the design team and their gorgeous interpretation of the sketch. - they are also a new design team for 2018.

I would love to see your interpretation of the sketch up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog ....

White ... with 1 - Jan 2018

Happy New Year to you all - may 2018 be a very good year for you all!

So being the 1st of the month - it means a new reveal and challenge for White ... with 1. A great colour this month - BAYOU BLUE. And to go along with this lovely colour - White with 1 have provided a mood board to get the creativity going (The mood board is of course optional):


Isn't this a great mood board - I love the colours and the textures. And especially the denim and the textures from the plant pots. This then inspired the following layout for White with 1 for January 2018:

I was very lucky to have the striped paper in my stash - perfect for this month's challenge. I then used other papers also with the denim effects. I then layered different collectables from Kaisercraft along side the photos. This is my gorgeous niece and I thought it quite appropriate that she was wearing a denim jacket - perfect with the papers.

White with 1 has a new design team for 2018 - pop over to the blog and have a look at the new team's inspiration and beautiful layouts that have been displayed. 

I look forward to seeing everyone's layouts created for this month's challenge.
