Another beautiful sketch from http://www.letsgetsketchy and I found a photo that suited this layout just fine.
Was quite busy this weekend so didn't sit and do this layout from start to finish like I normally do but I am pleased with the end results.
I have also entered this layout in the http://southerngirlschallenge which was a girly challenge and I don't think you get much girly than this. thanks for looking have a great weekend Kirsty

sand dunes

I had the opportunity to scrap on Wednesday being Anzac day in New Zealand which is just as well because the weekend ended up being really busy with the start of the netball season and this morning I did a 7 k walk for country to coast which took about one hour twenty but what a achievement. Anyway this is for the sketch at http://creativescrappers  this is the sketch. now I think this is a great sketch and it enabled me to use more than one photo which is always a plus in my book, so this is what I came up with

these were quite old photos so I really pleased that I had the opportunity to scrap them. anyway enjoy the rest of your day.

lady of the reef

one of the icons on Napier,s marine parade is Pania of the reef. She has an amazing legend that has been retold through the generations. This is a layout I did of the statue using the sketch from  http://sketchabilities 
This, as always is a great sketch. I love the way I get to use multi photos which helps to get through my never ending stash.
any way that is the end of my scrapping for the weekend thanks for looking and also for leaving lovely comments in the past it helps me to know that other people have seen my blog. 

A touch of paradice

Hamilton gardens are always a favourite spot for us to visit and take photos of. These are photos that I thought I would never be able to use and the paper must be one of the oldest in my collection so it feels really good to have this page done and the fact that I think it looks great is a benefit as well. the sketch is from http://www.letsgetsketchy. Which is a webby that I have just recently discovered. Thanks for looking hope you have a great weekend

my family my life

using this photo
from http://challengemehappy i came up with this layout that I am pretty happy with. sorry about the quality of the photo this is going to be my next learning task to take great photos. 
I love going through other peoples blog looking for inspiration and am in awe of the great photos that they take of their work. Any websites or suggestions would be great 
anyway onwards and upwards

I do make cards too

I do try to make a card each weekend but I tend to only post challenge items on this blog although I am not quite sure why You might just  see more of my card creations on here. Anyway the challenge over at http://southerngirlschallenge was to show some folds I could have added this to a layout but the card I wanted to attempt this weekend filled this criteria so that is what I did.  hope it is clear enough to see. had fun making this card thanks for looking Kirsty

other two layouts

The first layout I tried to do was from a hexagon inspiration which seems to be a trend at the moment but I could not find a hexagon shape that I was happy with so I decided to do what scrappers do best and improvise. This is the final product.
The other layout that I created I found a sketch for while browsing the net. Love the fun image and the shaped paper and being able to use more than one photo is a bonus. What do you think.  anyway off on holiday on Thursday taking the girls to the Resse Maston concert and do some shopping and hopefully get some cool scrappin photos. 

its the little things

this is for the challenge over at http://challengemehappy. this fortnight was an anything goes challenge so over the weekend I did a number of layouts and then chose my favourite. Am enjoying the long weekend and the cold weather is perfect for creating. here is the layout I have decided to submit
I am liking the green and orange combination and the sketch was quite a fun one to work with. let me know what you think Kirsty
