Scraplift YOURSELF

Mmmm this one was an interesting challenge at Dlish Scraps in the Scrap Suite.... pick a layout that you have previously created and sraplift yourself!! It took me a little bit of time to actually pick a layout that I wanted to scraplift... I ended up with a pretty recent one that stood out. 
My layout that I created, is all about our two new additions - Beat and Nova or new furbabies.
My layout I scraplifted, an older photo of Bronte. 
Another layout from my Counterfeit Kit - I did have to add the Heidi Swapp, Wolf Pack stickers which were not pat of my kit.... they just screamed out to be used on the layout.

Candid Moments

For this layout I used a challenge from D-lish Scraps in The Scrap Suite about using Candid photos that we take.... those not perfect photos that we all have. 
Here I was trying to take a nice photo of Paige....but Paige being Paige took a huge jump just as I said Cheese. I actually really love how the photo turned out. 
I used my June Counterfeit Kit that I created and also some of the Paper Pad I picked for Bash Your Stash.

June Gloom

For this layout I took my inspiration from the Paper Issues challenge June Gloom - the challenge was to scrap something crappy!! Scrap some of the harder things that happen in life. 

I picked the time that Paige had her finger slammed in a door - it was crushed and she had to go to hospital to have surgery to have it fixed. Bronte was a great help and insisted on feed Paige as both of Paige's hands were bandaged - one for the injury the other for the drip.
I used my Counterfeit Kit for this layout - I am hoping to kill my June kit. 

Easter Sundaes

I joined in with the Paper Issues challenges this month - this is my take on the Super Sundae challenge. 
This is about Bronte and Paige and the too cute to eat Sundaes they got at Easter time!! A Bunny and a sweet!! 
Happy with myself as I used my Counterfeit Kit for the layout - i just had to fish out the alphas for the title from my stash.

June White with 1

Loved the colour for White With 1 challenge this month. A little light blue called; Blue Shelter.
This layout came together really quickly with the help of my Counterfeit Kit and my paper pad I have pucked for the Bash You Stash challenge this month.... team that with my Colour Blast Colour Paste through a stencil and it was all done in an hour.

Counterfeit Kit Challenges

I joined in on the two challenges at the Counterfeit Kit Blog last month. Love that I am bashing my stash.
Challenge 1 was a sketch challenge.
 Challenge 2 was to draw inspiration from a quote.

White with 1 NSD Challenges

I actually got to scrap for National Scrapbooking Day this year. I joined in the White with 1 Challenge Blog and did two of the delightful challenges. I just love the simplicity of the challenges and how I have to bash my stash by the specified colour. Due to it being NSD an added extra element was thrown onto the challenge. 
White with blue plus a shape
 White with pink plus a stencil
Love how both of these layouts turned out. 

My June Counterfeit Kit

June Counterfeit Kit 

I didn't quite kill my May kit... actually I didn't get anywhere near killing it at all so I have added some of my May Kit into my June kit.   So for my June Counterfeit Kit I pulled from my stash and my May Kit. 
This months inspirational Kit was from a Hip Kit and I loved it.

What I saw when I looked at the inspirational kit??; Dark blues, little black dots on white, rainbows, colourful stripes, florals with dark backgrounds, a splash of orange and  geometrical patterns. With all of this in mind I raided my stash and here are the pappers I pulled. 

Here are the die cuts, alphas and stickers I thought would suit the inspiration. 

A pretty big kit.... hopefully I can kill this on.

May Counterfeit Kit

Well first up my apologies for neglecting my blog....again. Life has been crazy. To kick start my blogging again I thought I would do the Counterfeit Blog Challenge for tge month of May, it a pretty awesome kit for inspiration. Based on the Pebbles/Jen Hadfield"Chasing Adventures" collection that colorfully celebrates being active & exploring & adventurous! 
Below is my kit that I pulled from my stash. I was inspired by the bright bold colours, the cut apart sheets, all stickers, die cuts and word titles. The original kit was very travel themed so I pulled some travel embellishments  stamps and dies.  
Now to find some time to scrap using my kit.

Lets Get Sketchy for February

Greeting everyone.
Today I am sharing my February layout for Lets Get Sketchy. It is of our newest family member "Beat" he was just 6 weeks old when we picked him up. During the Christmas hoildays we lost two of our fur family members Tiara and Pip. We were feeling a huge gap withput a dog around the house so we decided on this little Australian Silky Terrier. He will be Paige's assistant dog.
So of course like all good scrappers do.... I documented it!

Come join in the fun and challenge at Let's Get Scrappy.

Design Team Call

Hi all. I just came across a Design Team call which I am thinking of applying for. I thought I would share the call to all my scrappy friends. It is for the Lets Get Sketchy Team. Pop in and have a look.... lots of great inspiration.

WoW where has the time gone?

It has been well over a year since I last blogged. It has been a year of adventure and no scrapping for me. For those who don't know I was posted to sea on HMAS Success and travelled and lived away from home for this time. I missed a lot of things happening with family and friends. I felt out of touch at times with no internet. But I had a great adventure and made a new family of all the great people onboard. My time on Success is coming to an end and I am ready to settle in back with Adrian and the girls in a new home... we are on the move again to Canberra. I am looking forward to getting back into Scrapbooking. Here are a few photos of my adventures.... can't wait to scrap these.
