Scrapmuch/ Sassy Scrapper November

 I love Scrapmuch double page sketches! When I saw this one at the beginning of the month it reminded me of this series of photos of my daughters level 3 tumbling routine from a few years back. I love the way the setout captures the movements in order (although the size of the photos prevented it from quite flowing across the double page unfortunately!)

The sketch challenge can be found and entered over at:

November Moodboard Challenge 

This was a quick double pager I made using the colours from this months colour challenge over at Sassy Scrapper. This American crafts paper collection was perfect for the colours!

Black with 2 November Challenge - A great escape


Thanks to Design team member Janet for showing us that Graphic 45s By the sea collection uses the correct colour combination!! I added a few other bits and pieces (tangerine is very difficult to find...) from my stash and followed the sketch. You can enter this months Black with 2 Challenge over at

Show us your stuff November challenge


What a fun challenge this one was! It took me a couple of days to get it together, but Im really happy with the results, and managed to get rid of a few items from the offcuts bag too! I chose the word live (or close enough - I used LIFE as I wasnt looking at the list when I chose, I wrote 'life can be so beautiful with you') I used a rather large button chipboard Ive had sitting in my stash for way too long, I used stencilling with modelling paste, and with a pen, and then I added stamping too. I used a square photo of my daughter with a whole lot of hair chalk in..... I used some Prima handmade flowers, and handmade my own leaves to go with them!

White with one November challenge

ww1 freesia

This one is my entry for Novembers White with One Challenge - White with Freesia... I have to say that this one was a real challenge as this is definately not a colour I would choose to work with normally, however I managed to find a few bits and pieces in my offcuts bag that fit the colour and a photo to match! Took me awhile to match up a few stamps and get things in the right spot but this is what I came up with - And another positive, I think I used up all my freesia offcuts so I dont need to use this colour again lol

Scrap the girls November Sketch challenge - Win


I had alot of fun with this months sketch from Scrap the Girls! (above) While I didnt really have anything in my head for the sketch - after difficulty finding a single horizontal photo of girls it really started to come together. I used rich deep colours to match the photo, and got rid of a few bits and pieces from my offcuts bag! This was my first try at making pleated circles and Im very happy with the way this turned out!

Scrap around the world/ Scrap Africa November

Tonight I was so glad to see the new moodboard over at Scrap around the world! I love using moodboards for inspiration and this one just screamed of a vintage style collection such as Primas Time travellers memories collection which I ended up using. I also found two Sketches to use - I loved the current sketch over at Scrap Africa (shown above) as well as the one I used for below which was from last months challenge over at show us your stuff. I was inspired by the vintage theme, the colours of the flowers and the music notes.... I am entering the above challenge into the following challenges:

And this is my other layout!
