Re Do

Re done the following morning and I like it much better! I had meant to use the Queen & Co the first time around but it was hiding underneath other stuff and I forgot. There's a rub on along the bottom - on a transparency- can hardly be seen in the pic and it's hard to read even IRL but I know it's there hey! I also sussed out the Polly Pocket stamp Dd used on her face and I like it so much better - not medal material but it's a winner for me!

Use spot/dot/circle patterned paper and circle embellishments.
Was fun but I shouldn't have been such a smarty pants and left it to the last day. This is also the first time I've used the printer on a layout for myself - since 2005. A pen is so much easier but I had too much journaling I wanted to put in on this layout.

I haven't figured out how to get more than one pic in a post using Picasso.....yet.

The Olympics of Scrapbooking.

Megan Renfree has a comp going on over at Sketch Book- yep, the Olympics in Scrapbooking :) We chose a country to represent for the entire running of the comp. My country is Belize and our first layout, a warm up, had to be made using ONLY the colours of our flag and the topic was abt ourselves. Hey Tuit lookee, Changito came to visit :) Can you tell I took the pic myself? LOL

Big thanks to Lara and Niella for telling me to get with Picassa even though it's taken a while to get it together this evening :S

More Favourites

Some oldies using packaging somewhere on your layout - a challenge from Lara @ Scrapbook Outlet NZ. We had a choice of other things to use, like fabric, the colour yellow but I mainly remember having to use the packaging.

The photograph of Dh's nephews is partly matted with the backing from a pkt of Making Memories Passport Line. Part of the title is on a strip of red fabric. The Scenic route tags are blank 'cos Dh needs to check the spelling and I don't know what's up with my Dymo labeller. Can't thread the damn thing.

I love this pic of Dd reading quietly to herself one summer afternoon. It's also one of my favourite layouts. The journaling box/spot/space was originally a printed embellishment from Making Memories I think, but I stuffed up on the journaling. However, this layout had to have a postcard!!! Nothing else was going to do so I made one with a scrap of pale pink Bazzil (using the untextured side), a sticker stamp from an old Life's a Journey line and the barcode from a pkt of Basic Grey wedding rubons. Oh yeah, and the packaging is the white 'embellishment' at the top of the layout. I had fun with this one, lots of ink, paint and bling and BG's yummy Boxer line c/o a SBO monthly kit. I learnt to do the ink thing while doing Louise Williams Challenge for So You Think You Can Scrap over at Scrapbook Studio.

I used the packaging again and punched holes along the bottom with my very cool buddy the Crop-o-dile. Shear ribbon's been threaded thru the holes with some OLD yellow MM stuff.

Earth to you :)

It seems I haven't scrapped in ages. Dd's room is being 'fixed' and all her stuff is in my scrap space and the lounge. So I thought I'd leave a few of my favourites completed earlier this year. These three were done over Queens birthday weekend.

All product used from SBO's April monthly kit. Lot's of Jenny B papers and alpha stickers. Do you see the cool felt, oval flower with handstitching in the first layout? Niella Han made it and it has the most cutest owl button in the centre. Love it!

Look at all the yummy teal!!

Stick around anywho, I've just signed up for the Olympics over on the Sketch Book! Eek, what have I let myself in for!
