I managed to get some scrapping done at a retreat last weekend, and had a go at the Scrap the Girls August challenge, using the Instagram logo, as inspiration.
For my layout, I was inspired by the green and red colours, the cream base and the heart.
The Good Life
Well it's been a little while since I was here on my blog, I hope I can remember how to do it lol.
Recently I was at a retreat and played along with a few challenges, so one of them was the Scrap the Boys August challenge. A colour moodboard.
I chose this photo of my nephews. Given the challenge was also to be inspired by the architecture, I noticed in the photo, there is some balustrade, and I thought it was a nice architectural element, I had a stencil that was similar in design, and used this as the base on my cardstock, and just went from there.
Thanks for looking.

Happy New Year 2019.
Well some of us are back into the swing of being back at work, for others of you, still relaxing on your summer break. Enjoy.
Today I am sharing my first share for 2019. I have used the inspiration board as inspiration for my layout. Although it is not celebrating the New Year, I thought it was still useful for celebrating a new baby. Here is the inspiration board:
And here is my layout:
So I was inspired by the colours, and by the phrase new beginnings in the inspiration board.
The first cluster shows Corbett Creations wood veneer word and bow, Little Birdie Pearl Petites flower.
I love the way the colours came together for this sweet layout.

Hi everyone, I hope you have all had an enjoyable Christmas.
I have had my parents visiting from Queensland, so that has been nice.
My share today, actually features my father, from his 80th birthday this year.
80 years young
I created this layout, using one of the current cybercrop challenges, set by Amanda Lawrence, owner of D-lish Scraps. She has created a birthday bingo challenge, here are the clues:
From the clues, I used stencilling, a splash of yellow, and a flair.
I started off my creating my background, using a number 5 x 5 stencil, it is pretty cool. I used texture paste and some Ken Oliver colour bursts for the colour.
In my first cluster, you can see a flair, coloured wire, journal it's basic journal spot, creative cuts leaves, and flowers from a previous JAP kit.
My Dad loves his layout, so this was a fun challenge to use for it. I hope you join in for the challenges, if you have some spare time over this holiday period.

Hi everyone, I am back with my second share for December.
This layout is one I have created using one of the cybercrop challenges over at the Scrap Suite, that were posted last week. Take a look, there are some awesome challenges. My layout is inspired by the challenge set by Amanda Hartmann, a travel page.
My layout is from my recent holiday to Italy, where I had many experiences, one of which was discovering the Aperol Spritz, oh my, so refreshing on a hot day.
Anyway, on my layout, I used a stencil from the Love Like This JAP kit, in spots around the edge of the page, with some texture paste.
In my first cluster, I have used a bitty bag, colour me cuts wildflowers, pastel petals and bow from a past kit bits.
The second cluster features the colour me cuts, pastel petals, as well as flair button, punchinella, enamel dots, and Journal Its from Love Like This JAP kit.
I keep finding bits in my left over JAP kits that suit all sorts of pages, lol.

Hi everyone, can you believe it is December? I really can't, I really need another month up my sleeve.
My first share for December is one inspired by the December Inspiration Board, a nice summery board, sure to get you searching for those summer pictures from last year.
My photo is from last December, a rare moment to catch up with my sister, as we live in different states, and this was her birthday, and she was in my home city.
Cheers to Us
I quite liked the vintage feel to the inspiration board, and was inspired by the flower image. So I chose a floral paper, and then went from there.
In my first cluster I have used a Green Tara Azalea, Colour me cuts flowers, which I coloured using gelatos, flair, Little Birdie pearl petites marshmallow flowers, forget me nots, faceted enamel dots.

Hi everyone, can you believe it is December? I truly can't. This year I was waiting all year to go to Italy, that came and went, and now it's nearly Christmas.
Anyway, time marches on and we bring you another challenge at Kraft Plus.
I don't often do stitching on my pages, it is a laziness thing, yet I love the effects, it adds such a great dimension to a layout. So I added stitching to my layout, and I loved it.
Frankie is a little deaf French Bulldog pup, who currently lives with us. He has fit into the family well, and is best friends with my sons dog, Dusty. They have so much fun together.
Anyway, about my layout. I cut some squares of patterned papers, layed them out in a pattern, then stitched them on, creating a frame around the photo and page. I also stitched on the Charms Creations heart and XO, and the other little quote tag.
I love how this layout turned out.
I hope we get to see your layouts for this challenge.
