Today i wanted to share a layout that i created for the 123 Challenge.
I was a former DT and i loved the concept for scrapping. So when Mel stepped in and helped out to bring it back, i thought that giving it a go again is the best to get my Mojo flowing.

So this moths challenge was:

1 Colour_Black
2 Word-Year
3 Technique- Twine circles

So with all that in mind, this is what i came up with:

On my layout i have included some chippy from Memory Maze. Their product is so easy and great to use. The new Barbed wire is great for all types of projects.

Well .....
I better go get organised to go and watch my daughter Horseriding.

Thanks for stoppiing people visiting and commenting

Reveal at STUCK

The latest sketch is up at STUCK.

I had some left over paint from another creation. So instead of wasting it, i grabbed a piece of white cardstock and just plastered it everywhere in the hope i may use it for another layout. Well i did....

Lots of Purple Pumpkin goodies in this one too!!!

So if your in need of a sketch to get your Mojo need to look any further than STUCK....

Big Smiles....


Today i would like to quickly share a layout that i completed for a challenge site which i find very challenging and enjoyable....Scrap Your Story Challenges.

And guess what!!

I got into the Top 3 for last thankyouxx

So this weeks challenge is based on a Theme:

ANIMALS!! There are lots of ways to interpret that as you'll see from our designers. You can scrap photos of a trip to a zoo, a farm, your pets even people in animal costumes. You can just tuck a little animal embellishment in somewhere or cover your page with a menagerie of long as we can see an animal on your layout somewhere ... you're golden! :)

I don't have any pet photos as we only own a bird and he is very hard to photograph. So i have used the idea as using animal embellishments. So i took a photo of BRidget which was taken on our last holidays. So my background pattern paper has butterflies and i have used Hambly Butterflies all over my layout.

and a few close ups of the Purple Pumpkin buttons and Memory Maze Chipboard :

So if you liked viewing my layout, why not pop over and visit Scrap Your Story....

A Day for ME.......

I thought i would scrap a bright sunny layout since most of the east coast of Australia has been experiencing alot of bad weather with all the storms and flooding. So i hope this post will brighten up your day....

I have discovered a new challenge site called Scrap your Story so i thought i would have a go...

Challenge #1 is JUST ONE PHOTO

That's right, any size, any theme, any style, any colors, anyway you want to do it so long as you incorporate one single more, no less.

I think i sound like a broken record, but i absolutely love all kinds of buttons from Purple Pumkin. There are heaps too choose from in the shop to match perfectly with your chosen themed project. I also have some wonderful Memory Maze chipboard on my layout too which i left plain. I felt that by doing this, it shows the details of the chipboard alot better.

Here are a few close ups:

The deadline for linking up for this challenge at Scrap your Story Challenge blog is Thursday, March 7th at 11:59pm (CST).

I hope you are having a wonderful day...i know that i am....and finally having a day to myself doing something that i love and enjoy...SCRAPPING!!!!!!
