August 1,2,3 Challenge

Its all good...Im as shocked as you are...I was tidying up the craft room and found a layout i forgot I had done for a challenge over at 123 Challenge.
The challenge was to use the word WATCH, use the colour GREEN and Texture Paste.

So here is the layout I created

The sun is just going down, so its not the best pic...
I have used Key Lime Pine glimmer mist for the background, I then used my Prima brick mask and used texture paste over it. To highlight the bricks and went around them with a black marker.
I used the word 'Watch' in my title. The fluffy white flower is my own creations with a combination of Kaiser and Purple Pumpkin resin flowers, the pink doily is also from Purple Pumpkin as is the wooden black and white button.

Thanks for looking

Dragon Tales - Scrap The Boys August Challenge

Fletcher really enjoys telling all of us tales of when he was a dragon and many other dragon related stories, so when I saw the challenge on Scrap The Boys this month I knew It would be an easy one to do...

The challenge
"This month we want to see a piece of your childs artwork on your layout and then have your layout inspired from that artwork!"

So i went through the pile of many dragons he has drawn and came up with this layout..

 Blue and brown buttons are from Purple Pumpkin aswell as the blue/brown twine

How cute is this dragon??? hehehe

Family - August Stuck Sketch Challenge

I know I havent been around for AGES...but that doesnt mean i havent been Scrapping...

My first post of today (there is a few...) is of a layout I created using one of the Stuck Sketches August challenges.
Here is the sketch...

And here is my take on it...

I was lucky enough to scrap this while I was away working on the Fancy That Scrapbooking Retreat!
I have used Basic Grey papers (Little Black Dress) the handmade flower comes from one of my awesome customers of Fancy That and the ribbon border/edging (goldish ribbon) was created using the
Sew Ribbon tool...
Its such a great tool for scrapbooking and card making...

Thanks for looking...and I promise there will be more uploaded shortly...
