Challenge YOUrself #60

December has been a busy month so the “anything goes” challenge over at challenger YOUrself was just the thing to get back into some creativity. Thanks to the team for your wonderful inspiration this month and throughout the year.

I have chosen to use a photo of myself with my  beautiful daughter in law.


Wishing you all a very happy and creative 2019. X

Scrap the Boys – December Challenge

This month the theme over at Scrap the Boys is is the fun caption “Naughty or Nice “. Thanks to Rachel  & the design team for sharing their fabulous layouts this month and throughout 2018, and to the very generous sponsors.

Here is my take  – using a photo of my grandson thinking about the question ‘have you been naughty or nice this year’DSC05888


Thanks for looking. Wishing you all the best for 2019 🙂

CSI December Challenge Case File #267

Loved the colour scheme in this case file challenge and I have used this in my layout. I was also inspired by the squares and Christmas theme using Christmas elements, stars and stamps from the evidence clues, I have paced my journalling on a tag from the testimony. Thanks to the design team for their fabulous inspiration.
