its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Its is fun doing a Christmas layout in the middle of the year. These are also photos that I thought I would not get scrapped which is the cool thing about http://www.letsgetsketchy. you can fairly much interpret the sketch any way that you want and it is interesting to see what everyone else has done with the same starting point. I love the colour combination of this layout and the cool chipboard sticker. That is about all for this week. Thanks for looking  Kirsty

I do believe in faries

Last week I mentioned that i Have not used my flowers often enough lately and today I think that I made up for that, although I still have a whole heap more flowers to use. The challenge was to use an angles or fantasy theme. Wasn't going to take part in this challenge as I didn't think that I had the right photos until I looked through my box and found the perfect ones, (that's what happens when you have over 180 photos to be scrapped you forget what you have) so decided to put this together. 
this is the web site that I am linking to http://southerngirlschallenge . thats all for now thanks for looking and all the lovely comments Kirsty

today is good

Spent most of this week thinking of a title that included the word today in it and the photos that would go with that title. On Thursday I decided to goggle search quotes with today and I discovered this on by Dr Suess that I liked and so that became the focus for my layout. This is the Website http://challengemehappy and this is my layout
the tape that came with the latest sudio calico kit was perfect for this layout because it has the days of the week on it. Wow the birthday celebrations for this website are over and I have enjoyed doing all the challenges that were posted but more importantly I will enjoy the big shot that I won so thanks to the design team  at Challenge me happy the big shot was totally unexpected. Thanks for looking Kirsty 


Had fun with this challenge. There is something about circles that I like on a layout and I dont use circles often enough and doing this layout I realised that I have not used my flowers for ages so this is a good thing. Loved the twine circles so yes I am pleased with this layout. This is the website that I am linking to   http://www.letsgetsketchy and this is the layout that I did
anyway not much happening this week kids back at school and life is back to normal. Thanks for looking Kirsty

dont stop playing

Love the quote that I have added to this layout and being an Early childhood  teacher I hope that I practice and reflect this quote on a daily basis. The quote seem appropriate for this layout  which looks like this. Just received my latest kit from studio calico and thought the flags and the chipboard birds were playful enough to fit with the layout aren't those birds the cutest. This is the sketch website that I am linking to     http://www.letsgetsketchyand this is the sketch

Scrapped a very old photo this week that's a positive. revisited a challenge website that I haven't for a while another positive. This is the layout

Kids go back to school tomorrow which is a good thing and life will get back to something that resembles normal. anyway will post my next layout thanks for looking Kirsty

I wonder

. Finally is  Annelie's challenge following this photo as inspiration 

and this is what I have decided to do with this particular layout 
Now lets see if I can link this post three different times. fingers crossed. Kirsty 

bright side of life

Layout number two is Hannahs recipe challenge Man this one had me stumped here is what I came up with
the challenge was to use 1 stamped image which are the butterflies in the top right corner. 2 staples which are attaching my twine in the left. 3 card stock background paper black segment card and shape outline . Four words in the title reads bright side of life. Five patterned papers and my segments and six stickers are the pyramid shape in the left hand corner. See I told you that this was hard but then it wouldn't be a challenge then would it 

oh hail

Am trying something different this weekend and linking three layouts on one post. Fingers crossed that this works. These three layouts make my seven layouts for the website http://challengemehappy. they have had a birthday celebration and lots of different challenges that have taken us to our limits. The first layout that I want to share is
sorry about the glare of the camera. I got to use six photos in this layout so that took a big chunk out of the photo box. I liked the overlay piece that has been sitting in the box just waiting for the right photos. this is the ad that I used as inspiration thanks Lisa for the challenge.

Be yourself

Another challenge for the lets get sketchy website. Saw a layout similar to this on the net while surfing this week and decided that the colour squares made an effective background so decided to see if I could do something along that line and this is what I came up with.
was a good way to use up a whole lot of scraps and am pretty impressed with the layout so therefore I have achieved a goal. the background white card stock actually has a wood grain print on it that didn't show up in the photo well these are some of my favourite papers at the moment. Here is the sketch I was following The design team are doing an amazing job with the inspiration and comments and this is my favourite sketch site at the moment. http://www.letsgetsketchy Thanks for looking Kirsty
