Scrap the Boys - October Sketch

This is my entry for the October Scrap The Boys sketch. I took this photo of my boy recently and I really can't believe how grown up he is now...my how time flies, it seems only yesterday Jake was a baby and now he his working part time and saving for his first car!  I have used Pink Paislee Starlight papers and added some hessian as the required fabric detail element. I have stamped and glimmer misted the card stock to give it a grungy feel, which I love on teen layouts.

Get Picky Sketch

I thought I would join in the first challenge over at Get Picky, a fantastic new sketch site for multi photo layouts. The photos are of my cute little niece Chloe on a recent trip to the beach. I have used Echo Park Sweet Summertime papers, Green Tara mesh ribbon, Kaisercraft bling, Prima flower and Basic Grey alphas.

ScrapBoutique Guest Stylist

I was very excited to be invited by Chelsea to be the October Guest Stylist at Scrap Boutique. Chelsea sent me a gorgeous Guest Stylist pack and I have been busy creating...nothing I can share as yet but hopefully I can soon :)

I have just completed the SB monthly challenge which has been set by Manon. It is to scrap a page about you and the things you are proud of about yourself. I found the challenge quite hard and this is what I came up with.

Proud to be...




I have used Basic Grey and Sassafras Indie Girl papers. I love the colours in the Indie Girl papers and the cut off strips are so pretty. I have added some AC Thickers, Green Tara string, a Tim Holtz button, Prima flower and packaging. I have recently seen a few tutorials on how to make bodies for punched butterflies and thought I would give it a go...I love the way they change the look of the MS butterflies.

I am wishing for the rain to stop so we can enjoy a nice sunny weekend for a change...Hope you have a great one!

Echo Park 'Walk In The Park'

I love the new papers by Echo Park! They are so bright and fun. I purchased the September monthly kit from Country Papercraft...and found it was full of yummy papers and embellies. I have completed five layouts and still have enough paper leftover for some cards. Now that's great value! I completed this layout of Mikala as a baby using Marg's sketch.

Anna's challenge entry

I have been a bit neglectful of my blog lately, there has been a lot going on including this little man's parents beautiful wedding. Riley's Mum (my gorgeous niece Kristle) married her childhood sweetheart Craig at the Bonville International Golf Course and even though it hardly stopped raining we all had the most wonderful and special day.

Cute Little Man



















I completed the layout for the Anna's Craft Cupboard monthly sketch competition. I have used Basic Grey Cappella papers and letters which are perfect for wedding photos along with some mesh ribbon and AC Thickers. Isn't Riley just the cutest in his little suit?

Here's a family photo I took on the day...you can see the rain pouring down in the background. xox
