Guess What!

I have been scrapping that is traditional paper scrapping, after all this time I finally got my creative juices flowing and started creating.
Here is a little peak of what I created today...
Now the photo was taken on my iphone so please excuse the quality of the photo.
Will be able to show you the whole page shortly.
Now for some digital pages I have created. All of these are for challenges over at Soul Scrappers
This page is for Jami 'theme challenge' in the news. We had to scrap about a news event. I was listening to the news and they had just announced that Margaret Olley had passed away, so scrapped about her.
Next up is a page for my 'quote challenge', I picked a Dr. Suess quote which was so appropriate for scrapping a page about my youngest son.
For Debi 'negative space challenge' I created this page. Debi also had a sketch for us to use, I did alter the sketch a bit to sure my scrapping style.
Kris's digital challenge was to create a page about a milestone in our lives, so I scrapped about getting my nursing diploma at 45.
Next up is my page for Mary's colour challenge, so loved using these colours together.
And for the last one to share, this page was for a sketch challenge. Not sure if I like the grid design but I do love the photos of my youngest grand daughter Mia.
Hope you like what I have been creating?

Another Page

For my album 'my place in the sun'.
For July the topic is to create a page or two about feathers, fur and fins.
So I have scrapped about the birds that are around our house. Some are so lovely and sweet but other I could gladly see the back end of for good. Take the pesty magpies they are forever on the veranda eating the cat food so we have to constantly keep the food covered much to the cat's disgust. And what about the plovers, so noisy and they chase you when they are nesting...well anyway here is my page.
Thanks for stopping by, much appreciate all your lovely comments :)

Where Does The Time Go?

I have been so busy lately, just can't seem to get a grip on this working 2 jobs. Plus have been babysitting my 2 grand daughters a bit lately. So you guessed it my scrapping has been virtually non-existent.
I have only got two layouts to share with you today and both of these are for Scrapbooking  Haven.
Part of my DT kit included Glimmermist masks and mists so this is what I created using one mask and gumdrop mist...
oh and the butterfly has a few different coloured mist applied as well, nearly forgot that. Did some fussy cutting of Kaisercraft paper too. Don't you just hate it when you apply mist or paint and you page buckles, grrrrrrrrrrrr!!! For some reason this page I just couldn't flatten, used the phone book and all!
So next up I set a sketch challenge for this month over at Scrapbooking Haven, here is the sketch.
I decided to go with a A4 size layout.
Simple but jet very effective I think, just love the bright colours on the black background.
So that is all I have to share today. I am hoping to scrap some more soon, keeping fingers crossed.
