A sketch challenge...

The new weekly challenges are up again over Scrapz.Biz.  Our theme for the week is "white" but instead of focusing on the colour white I thought I'd go with "white space" instead and came up with this sketch...

Usually I scrap a page and then do up the sketch but this time I did it the other way around.  Here's my sample page using some of my fave Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe goodies...

 Some closeups...

If you'd like to play along you can find all the details HERE. :D

Thanks for dropping by!

Scrappy shares...

We had so much fun at our first ever Scrapz Virtual Class on Friday night and I've loved seeing all the class layouts popping into the gallery ever since. :D  Here's my page that the class was based on...





I made some journal covers to add to the prizes for the class and gave one away on the night (congrats Lorraine!) and drew the winner of the other one this morning now that all the entries are in (congrats to you too Fiona!).  Hope you enjoy them girls!


Thankyou so much to all of you who came along!  We're already planning our next virtual crop...details coming soon. ;)

This week's challenges have now gone up.  (You can find them HERE.)  I've organised the 'Noteworthy' card challenge (details HERE).  Here's my sample card using some very cool October Afternoon Rocket Age goodies...


Oh how I adore this range!  I'll be playing with this collection some more very soon. ;)


Hope you're having a great week! :D

Today marks the beginning of the first ever Scrapz.Biz Vitual Crop!  All challenges are up now.  Do some of the challenges or do them all ... each challenge entered will earn you automatic points and you have until midnight Sunday, June 19, 2011 to upload. Head on over HERE for all the details and HERE to see the challenges that the DT girls have set. :)  There will be a random prize for each challenge and a Scrapz guest DT spot for July to be won!

I've set the "What's Cooking" challenge for the crop.  (Details HERE.)  Here's my sample...


 I've used Echo Park Playground goodies for my page...so lovely and bright! 


 I hand stitched part of my title on the tag for something a little different. :)


Also as part of the crop I'll be running a free online class tomorrow night.  I'd love you to join me!  We'll be kicking off at 7.30pm and there'll be random giveaways throughout the night during the class.  Here's a little sneaky peek of the layout we'll be scrapping...

Rosey cheeks, pink noses and a ladybug...

Lately I've been reaching for some of my older photos to scrap.  It's so much fun to look back at the kids and how much they've changed!

This page was my sample for the Scrap It Blind challenge last week over at Scrapz Biz.  (Details HERE.)  This was the first time any of our kids had been to the snow and they had SO much fun.  I've scrapped other photos from that trip ages ago but I still had these ones sitting in my photo box. :)




This week (also at Scrapz.Biz) I've set the Paint a Rainbow colour combo challenge.  (Details are HERE.)

Here's the combo I've chosen...

 And here's my sample page...


I just love these photos of Madi (2 years ago now!) of her first encounter with a ladybug.  She sat there for AGES totally fascinated with it crawling all over her hands and arms until she finally set it down onto a leaf...so cute!



It's starting to get very chilly here!  Brrrrr.... Definitely time to go and put the kettle on.  Thanks so much for dropping by!
