I wish I had more given hours in my week - I just don't seem to have time to do all the things I want to do - like all the challenges on Scrapbooking From Scratch this month!
Only managed the quote and colour I'm afraid.
Quote was to use "You are amazing just the way you are" which I thought worked well as a saying on a birthday layout.
The colours were to use this palette ...
I know the second colour could be peach pink or orange depending on how your monitor picks it up - I've gone with an orange tone.
Journaling reads ..
Cats love catnip it’s
true – it’s a herb from the mint family with medicinal qualities and for cats,
the herb seems to be highly attractive.What a lot of people don’t realise is that chlorine produces similar
reactions in most of the feline population.Miss Bella is totally unbothered, while Mr Zo will go wild with
excitement.He likes nothing better
than to rub his head against Christopher when he comes home after a squad
swimming session.He will lick his hair
and roll over on his feet in total cat bliss.
The November challenge on Scrap the Girls is a quote challenge - use as a Title or in Journaling.
"Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things." Author Unknown
I've used a lovely photograph of my daughter and a good friend of hers from school days. I love their happy smiles. As an added bonus I've managed to use up a BG lace paper I've had in my stash forever.
Scrap the Boys have asked for layouts about man's best friend although we are welcome to think laterally rather than literally :)
We don't own a dog but have two cats in the house. One has become very attached to my ds and did so from the very beginning when he arrived as a small kitten. This cat doesn't think he's a cat. He has distinct dog like qualities - he begs for food, chases balls, runs to the front door when we have visitors (rather than going to ground like our other feline does) and follows us around constantly. We call him our cog !!
Love these happy colours for the Life Paper Scrapbook colour challenge this month - so versatile and fun. I've used some carefree selfie photos of my kids and a combination of the challenge colours for my layout.
I have a little stock pile of 6x6 paper pads and I really love using them so when the November challenge of Scrap our stash called for some 6x6 love (and using 6 of one kind of embellishment - I used rhinestones) I was ready to create.
The Kraft it Up November challenge is to create a layout using Kraft Cardstock or Kraft Patterned Paper showcasing one of these trending products...
* Wood Veneer's
* Enamel Dot's
I'm pleased we had a choice as I don't own a single enamel dot to my name. I've been meaning to get myself some but have so far resisted. I've used some great little wood veneer arrows and I threw in a flair just for the heck of it.
I'm on a bit of a mission at the moment to scrap a few Christmas layouts as I am always way behind in this department. It helps to get me in the Christmas spirit although one quick trip to the local shopping mall and a few renditions of Bing dreaming of a White Christmas soon puts a stop to that !!
Scrapping Outback are encouraging some Christmas spirit this month with their November challenge of a Christmas themed project and the use of chipboard and glitter.
This is a layout I have been wanting to do for quite some time, in fact I have a little list of Christmas themed projects which I pull out at this time of the year and try to mark off one or two. I'm not sure how successful I am as I seem to jump all over the place as regards to time and place. This one is from when my son was in Year 1 (he's the tea towel headed young shepherd in the back row!) and he's now about to complete Year 9 - better late than never I guess !!
The glitter is on all the journaling cards - you may just notice the shimmer although the camera doesn't pick it up well. The chipboard is the butterfly. The little squares are epoxy badges which have been in my stash for what seems forever and I am delighted to say I have used them up!!
The whole idea is to let the photo lead you somewhere to create your own page - it doesn't have to be a literal interpretation of this photograph - just an association of ideas.
I had to use this photo of my father at about age 8. They lived on a farm at the time and money was scarce so I have about four photographs of him as a child. This one is a favourite - socks pulled up, hair neatly combed, clutching his cat like his life depended on it (and the cat isn't overly keen by the look of things). I love the wicker chair he is sitting on, such an unusual design with it's sloping back and the vine in the background looks to be passionfruit or choko which might explain my Grandmother's lifelong obsession with this fruit (but that's a story for another time!).
Come on over and see what our Design Team have come up with. We'd love to have you join in with us.
