Missed the deadline by this...much! There's always next time.

Hi Elisa again ! Yes! this silly newbie online scrap challenge blogger missed the deadline. Circumstances beyond my control unfortunately ~ involving water in a light fitting shorting out the electricity in our neighbours house. However I thought I'd still post the layout as I really liked the colour scheme from the mood board. Again its a real pleasure to create a girly page when I normally scrap my boys, thank goodness my niece had a baby girl recently and I can start using the flowers in my scrapping stash.

Scrapping with my favourite colours for D-lish Scraps

Hi Elisa here! scrapping with my favourite colour scheme. One of my favourite layouts in a long time, loved how the background came together and showcasing the gorgeous beach that is only 5 kms away from our house. One of my favourite places to be in summer.

Feeling whimsical

Really loved the inspiration board set for this challenge. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what photo I would use, and exactly what papers would go well with it. So happy with how it turned out. Hannah smith.

This challenge caught my eye - my little man says the funniest, cheekiest things sometimes. Hannah Smith

scrap mad!!!

Was in the zone last night after discovering all the competitions - exciting stuff!
This one was a great challenge, had to search through the photo archives all the way back to 2008 before I found a photo I wanted to use. Cant wait for next week when more challenges are loaded :) Hannah Smith

Scrappy Canary February Sketch Challenge

I had fun with the sketch and February challenge from Scrappy Canary. I got to scrap a favourite photo of mine of my Great Niece and get my 'girly' page at the same time. Coming from a mum of boys I don't get to scrap 'girly' pages very often and really enjoyed creating this page. I'm starting to think I have a thing for sequins at the moment.

Welcome back scrapping mojo!

I am loving the February Mango Breeze Kraft Plus Challenge so much so I have welcomed my dormant scrapping mojo back and created another layout.   I am quite pleased (and so is my lovely hubby) that I have not purchased any new paper or stamps to complete this layout.
