Our challenge was to create a layout of our family, so I have scrapped this photo of my family just before we left on our first 'big' holiday together as a family. Now to get the rest of the photos done from the trip. There are so many.
I enjoyed this challenge, and love the colours I have used. I had some paper put aside for this photo but had never got around to doing it. The thing I love most about challenges is that it motivates me to get my layouts done by a deadline. I think I work best under pressure...lol.
The 3 elements I have used from the Tic Tac Toe board was paint, ribbon and flowers.
For this challenge we had to scrap as many photos from the one event on a 12 x 12 layout. I scrapped some photos I had been meaning to do for ages, so it was a great opportunity to get another layout done.
This challenge was set by Kristie and we were to use green, yellow and white to creat our layout.
The photo here doesn't really show the detail of the layout. I have misted the background with pale green and yellow and have ruffled tulle around the large circle. It was really hard to photograph as the misting had mad the page buckle a little. I have made the flower using the Tim Holtz die cut.
I have tried to use all the items listed by each DT member. I have used a butterfly, a flower, ribbon, bling, scrap paper (the strip with the bird cages - left over from a layout our did recently), pearls, a button, paint, lace and I had no twine or string so I used some floss in the button. I love challenges like this as it gets me to use up some things I have had in my stash for ages. Thanks for looking.
I began scrapbooking approximately 9 years ago when my son was born. I scrap whenever I can, and make time for an annual scrapbooking retreat to the country for the weekend to catch up with friends. My friend and I take turns in hosting scrap weekends at each other’s houses...although not as often as we would like...LOL.
My main subjects to scrap are my 2 children...Zack and Marnie. They both provide many 'special moments' for me to photograph and scrap. My aim is to create albums full of wonderful memories for them. I love that scrapbooking helps us remember special moments that might otherwise become forgotten over time.
Scrapbooking for me, is about capturing the memories and/or feelings of the moment...it is not about altering my photos to make my children appear 'more beautiful' ...they are already beautiful, just the way they are.
I don't have a particular style and I like to try new things. I am beginning to try out new sketches and challenges.
