CSI#256 – June challenge

The June 15 challenge over at CSI had me thinking of camping / travelling. I have used the traditional cues to solve the case using dots, stripes circles twine and tags from the evidence,  the inspiration word “adventure” in my journaling and the colour pallette from the scheme.

thanks to the team for their wonderful inspiration.

Hello Beautiful.

Good morning.

Today I would like to share a layout I have done combining the cute mood board from CSI #255 and the Scrap our Stash blend a sketch challenge. Thanks to both teams for their fabulous inspiration.




I have used a series of photos of my granddaughter “helping” with some baking . I was inspired by the food theme in the mood board from CSI and by the colours. I have used stars, hearts and dots from the evidence clues too. The journaling references food from the testimony.

The blend a sketch challenges are always so much fun. I have used the 3 photos in a line from the left hand sketch and the layers and split background from the right and sequin stars in the embellishments

Wild & Free

Hi, I love this photo of my DH taken many years ago. He has always had a great love of the sea and is always so happy on the water. He has passed this love of the ocean on to our sons too.

I am combining a few challenges with this layout.


Thanks to Off the Rails for the gorgeous moodboard. The aqua blue water and seascape inspired my layout clouds and theme


This month sees fathers day in America and the Golden Globe challenge from Scrap Our Stash celebrates this special day. I have used the following items from my stash

F – flair,frayed fabric  A – anchor,  T – Tassel and twine, H – heart and hessian, E- enamel dots, R – rub on



The Creative studio has a nautical themed moodboard – To the Sea. I have used the gorgeous 7 Gypsies sun rub on and burlap available from Canvas Corp Brands



The posture of the man in the moon reminded me of the posture of my husband in this photo ( even though he’s not in a chair!!) The sombre colours also influenced my colour choice. I have used a silver star flair from Creative Embellishments and also a sun rub on as my celestial items

# Game On

Hi, I am combining 2 challenges with this layout.

The sweet sketch #329 from sketches in Thyme with the striking moodboard from the Scrapbook Boutique. Thanks to both sites for the inspiration.

Here is my take


I have tipped the sketch on its side for my portrait photo.

The spots the dice from the moodboard inspired me to use the domino patterned paper and the black, white and red colours also inspired me.

White with 1 June challenge

I love black and white and this month the challenge over at White with 1 is to use Space Frontier with white. There is also an awesome sketch!!

Thanks to the team who have once again come up with some amazing pages.

Here is my take. I have included some very cute resin figures from the Resin Rainbow  in my embellishment cluster and lots of stash busting scraps of patterned paper!
