Little Yellow Bicycle Kit

Dear fellow Scrapbookers

Trust you all had a fabulous weekend, and are back into the swing of the working week!

Since yesterday was Monday, that means there is a new sketch over at Scrapbook Challenges - Sketch 319.

Here is the single layout sketch:

Pop on over to see what the other Sketch Crew members have come up with!

I got this awesome Little Yellow Bicyle paper - 'splash' range. I made a lovely summer beach kit, with chipboard and double sided paper. I so enjoyed this kit, I will definitely be doing more Little Yellow Bicycle kits in the future.

Here is the kit, which sold out this weekend at the I-Scrap function:

I used 2 double sided papers, made some tags, and used the paper to make waves.

How cute are these chipboard pieces? The lollipops went perfectly with the pictues I wanted to use.

This is a bonus single layout I included in the kit, as there was so much chipboard over. What a great value for money packet of chipboard shapes!
I hope to get some scrapbooking done this week.Thanks for stopping by today.
Happy Scrappin'

I-Scrap Function & Sketch 318

Hello bloggers

It is a lazy Sunday afternoon in our house. Poor Morgan has been suffering with a sore throat, so its been movies and relaxing.

This weekend was I-Scrap's Scrapbook weekend. I was a teacher yesterday and the ladies were fabulous. I had such a good time with them, and was so pleased to have been asked by Jenny to be a teacher.

Here is the layout I did:

The kit was made from the gorgeous Prima 'Rondelle' range. I used 2 double sided 12"x12" papers,  6"x6" papers, chipboard and American Craft cardstock.

This is a pocket with tags for journalling.

On the top left hand page i made a flap, with space for journalling and more photos. There was also a secret pocket for storing personal letters or more photos.

There was so much paper and chipboard left over, so i made this bonus single layout for the ladies:

This sketch is this week's challenge over at Scrapbook Challenges. Sketch 318 - i distressed the papers, sanded the papers and embellished with chipboard.

The weekend was a wonderful success, welcome to Jenny at I-Scrap. and here's to many more of your wonderful weekends

I love this layout

Welcome Friends,

Hope that you all had a fabulous weekend. Did you get much scrapbooking done?

The new sketch is up at Scrapbook Challenges, Sketch 316.

What a great sketch to work with! I've been wanting to do a layout of Morgan for a while now, where i record her quirks and things she likes at the momenet. we always think we will remember, but sadly as time goes on we don't. I'm a huge one to advicate journallling, but so slack in doing it myself. So here it is!!

My Minds Eys - Lost and found range (alpha stickers, paper). Prima Flowers.

Love all the texture on this page. The glitter on the paper, the paint on the stamp,pearl mist on the doilie, the flowers, the lace - just so girly!

I used a 7 gypysy stamp for the top journalling spot, and a kaisercraft (up, up, away range) for the bottom journal spot.

SOmetime you have an idea of how you want your layout to come out, and it doesn't always work that way! Well i'm so pleased with this one. It was exactly what i had in mind.

I remember the day she asked for this picture to be taken. Was January/February this year. She said i must do a 'photoshoot' of her and her babies!!! lol. too cute, got such great pics since she was in a posing mood. the dolls were pretty good too.....

Please remember to upload your take on the sketch to the Scrapbook Challenges website.

Have a super duper week friends!
