catch up and a layout

hello blogger friends

what a fantastic November we are having. summer finally seems to have arrived and the Scrapbook Convention came to PE for the first time ever!

and as you know PE ladies rock and we had the best day last week Saturday Scrapping with Glenda and Jowilna at the Radisson.Christmas themed, we did layouts and projects and cards. Can't say too much more until the ladies in Cape Town and Johannesburg have had their turn. So watch this space to see what we did at convention!

Over at Scrapbook Challenges is this week's sketch - 323.

Here is my take on it.

i don't usually use big titles on my layouts, but quite like this one. thanks to my trust cricut machine for the title.
I used an old sheet of Kaisercraft, and cardstock. 2 sheets of paper were embossed in the cuttlebug and embossed, one with glitter powder (circles) and the other with ink.
the spritzing on the cardstock didn't quite come out too well.
hope you do the sketch, and post it to the gallery at scrapbook challenges.
happy scrappin' this week :)

A ladies diary layout

Good day bloggers!!

Over at Scrapbook Challenges earlier this month i did sketch 321.

Here is the sketch:

This is my layout for the Sketch Crew:

i used the gorgeous ladies diary range from Graphic 45, paper and chipboard as well as flowers and brands from their stapels range.

I distressed the papers and used the paper as journalling tags. I didn't matt my photo, but sanded it instead.

My little girl is growing up so fast, i can't believe she is 3 and a half already. Such a sweet child, i love scrapping these pretty pictures of her!

Hope you are able to capture your precious moments to and create a beautiful album to reminise over in years to come.

Happy scrappy weekend.
