Scrap the Girls Challenge

Guess what?! I have scrapped for myself! I have completed the Scrap the Girls January challenge which is a nice easy sketch! Sometimes you need to ease yourself back into the swing of things!

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the sketch:

I have kept this one fairly true to the sketch and clean, although I felt it was missing something without ink/mists/stamping!  I have used pretty much just things from a Studio Calico kit I picked up in the Sales in November. And the gorgeous girl in the photos is my little niece Alice, although she is not so little now, but she still has that same beautiful smile.

I also have another page to share, a sketch from back in November, from Stuck?! (I think, it was too long ago and I never finished it in time so it may have evolved!).

Pretty soft colours for a Christmas layout, but loving the gold! And I can't believe how little my two girls were in these photos. For the record, they are about to turn 15 and 13! Here is what they look like now:

Well, that is it for now. Hopefully I will be back soon with some Project Life stuff that I have been finishing off for 2013. Almost a full year complete! Yay!

More Inspiration at D'Lish!

Another inspiration board has been loaded over at D'Lish and it is so on trend! The board is titled 'Lilac Haze' and looks like this -

The reason it is so 'on trend' is because the Pantone colour of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid and looks like this!

So, with that in mind I created the following page -

I took my inspiration from the straws, the flower mobile and the touches of black from the chandelier. I used the following products from the D'Lish store to help create my page:

Bitty Blooms - purple
Violas - aqua
Crocheted small blooms - sky blue
Word Sheet - Sunshine
Seam Binding - purple
Monochromatic Flair - lilac

Head over to the D'Lish blog to check out the other great pages inspired by this board and then do your own!

New Year and New Challenge up at WW1!

Happy New Year and belated Christmas greetings! Well the holiday season certainly disappeared in a flurry of activity and events here, how about you?!

Now that the new month (and year for that matter!) has begun it is time to share some WW1 inspiration! This month at WW1 the colour is Tangerine! A nice bright but deep orange. Here is my take -

This month we partnered with Words or Whatever, I used the cute banner, paperclip and polaroid frame, covered with a little picket fence distress paint to give a white wash effect. My page ended up a sort of Project Life style which was a great way to add papers and not look too busy, and I used some old Christmas photos to boot! Who says you need traditional colours for Christmas?! Now, time for you to go and create your own tangerine masterpiece!

I hope to see your pages up soon!
