Scrap the Boys – September Challenge

Hi, I have used a very old photo of my Dad which I think was probably taken in 1924 and is the earliest photo I have of him – perhaps he is really a toddler not baby so I hope thats ok. The beautiful knitted baby clothing in the inspiration board spelled ” Vintage” for me.  Thanks to the design team for their inspiration.DSC04537

Love it!! – September challenges

Hi ,

I am combining a few challenges with his colourful layout of my granddaughter playing soccer. Thanks to Scrap Our Stash, Archiscraps and Scrapbookit for their fabulous challenge prompts and design team projects.

Here is my take.


I was inspired by the colours in the moodboard from Scrapbookit – blue, teal deep pink and yellow. I have included texture paste, mist and stamping in my mixed media background and have fussy cut some fruit embellishments.

Arch-scraps theme for September is fruit either as an embellishment or in the photo or journalling. I have included a photo of the team enjoying some watermelon after the game and have some fussy cut some fruit embellishments.

The September Golden Globe Stash Challenge inspires the use of a grid design and something transparent. I have used transparent washi tape to divide the grid pattern and also in the film strip embellishment.

Challenge YOUrself – August Challenge

Hi, this was quite a difficult challenge for me as I have very few photos of my mum and me. I have been working on an album of myself for more years than I care to remember and this page will become part of the 8×11 collection. I have included photo of my grandmother too along with other family members so it covers 3 generations of women. The tiny 2×2 photos were taken in 1957 I think. I have titled my layout ‘Moruya’ – the town in which my grandmother lived and where I have many happy holiday memories.

Thanks for another fab challenge and prompt to keep working on this album!!

Scrap the Girls -August challenge

Thanks for another great challenge. This month the moodboard “Wild Women Do”  has a great colour palette and design prompts which led to my paper choice (zebra stripes) and colours. The theme “wild women do’ made me think about strong women (and girls!) living and loving life. Here is my take
