Challenge Scrapping

Well, I have to say I have been scrapping up a storm this weekend! I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with girlfriends at a scrapping retreat and I was very proud of myself having completed 9 pages!! Can you believe it?? I almost couldn't. I rarely get much done when I scrap with friends (I am guilty of talking too much and scrapping very little!), so I really didn't expect that I would achieve much at all. But I think I packed right, didn't think about things too much and took challenges and sketches to work from and then things happened!

So, I have a Purple Pumpkin sketch challenge entry (because my order arrived just in the nick of time on Friday before I left!). So here is the sketch:
and here is my take:


The only other criteria was to include some Purple Pumpkin goodness! Which I did with the cool pink spotty button. I used Crate Paper Emma's Shop which is absolutely lovely to work with too.

The other challenge was for Scrap Jacked. I chose to use a page by Bec as my inspiration and used some Basic Grey Life of the Party for a simple boy page. Here is the inspiration page:


and here is mine


I still have trouble looking at this photo of Liam for too long, he just looks too grown up, certainly older than his six years!

Well that is enough for now. But rest assured I will be back with some more pages to share soon!!

Catch you later,
Katie

Love your take on the Purple Pumpkin sketch, and your other layouts are gorgeous too :) And that boy of yours sure does look older than 6 years in that photo! They just grow up too fast don't they?
