Handsome Little Man - Show Us Your Stuff & White with 1 January Challenges


Well I've got one final layout to post that I completed this month!

It's a double layout, but I'll show you each side separately as I'm entering them into two separate challenges. 

So first up, the challenge at Show us Your Stuff for January was to use this sketch (and as always to include a handmade item on your layout):


This is what I created using this sketch...
"Handsome Little Man"

My handmade item is my title... I created the word 'Handsome' using my Silhouette Cameo!

Here are a few closeups...

So next up, the right hand side of my layout I created for the White with 1 challenge which was this:

ww1 placid blue

White with 1 teamed up with Sketchabilities for January, so we also had to use this sketch...

Here is the layout that I created...

I had fun creating this layout... I think its the first time that I've created a layout with only one colour!!

Here are a couple of closeups...

So, the completed double layout looks like this...

Thanks so much for visiting & taking a look at my layout! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

You are a Dream Come True - Scrap the Girls January Challenge

Hi there!

I'm back again to share another layout with you :) This one was done for the January challenge at Scrap the Girls. The challenge this month was to use the following sketch...


What a pretty sketch this is... perfect for scrapping girls! Here is the layout that I created for this challenge...
"You are a Dream Come True"

I turned the sketch 90 degrees clockwise and moved the flower cluster to the other side of the photo as this seemed to work better with my photo :) Isn't my little Eleanor just so precious! She's 2 days old in this photo!

I created another layout using the same papers and similar photos that you can see here. I just loved the papers and photos so much that I couldn't create just one layout!!

I'm loving fussy cutting flowers at the moment... There's just something therapeutic about it :)

Here are some closeups so that you can see all the details...

I used the phrase on this sticker as the title for my layout... I couldn't have said it better myself!

Isn't that butterfly gorgeous! Its a We R Memory Keepers embossed sticker... So pretty!

Thanks so much for visiting & taking a look at my layout! I appreciate your lovely comments as well!


Cherish You - 123 Challenge Blog & Stuck?! 1st January Challenge

Hello & welcome to my blog today!

Well I'm just getting this posted in time to enter my layout into the January 123 Challenge and the 1st January Stuck?! Sketch Challenge...

This is the 123 Challenge for January:


And this was the Stuck?! sketch that I used...


Here is the layout that I created for these challenges...
"Cherish You"

I was quite happy with how my layout turned out, I love how these challenges really do 'challenge' you to create your best and to keep growing in your creativity! This is Eleanor at 2 days old :)

And here are some closeups of my layout...

I used the colour lemon in the strip across the top of the layout and in the banner behind the title. I also added a little lemon coloured heart rubon and a resin flower. For the folding criteria I made this paper rosette & popped a glittery button on top for a cute little embellishment!

I used the word 'appreciate' in my journalling. I've included a photo of the journalling here, but on my layout it is tucked in underneath the photo on the left.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout, I really enjoyed creating it :)

Thanks for visiting and for any comments that you leave for me! I really appreciate it!

Today is Beautiful - Scrapmuch? and Sassy Scrappers

Hi & welcome!

I'm back today to share another layout that I created, this time using the mood board at Sassy Scrappers  

January Moodboard Challenge

...and a sketch from ScrapMuch?


Here is my layout...
 "Today is Beautiful"

I was inspired by the gorgeous bright colours on the mood board!

I stuck to the sketch fairly closely, but I replaced the photo on the left with a journal card and added a few extra bits & pieces here and there :)

Here are some closeups...

Thank you so much for visiting and taking a look at my layout!

Brand New Baby - Scrap Around the World January Challenge

Hello & welcome to my blog!

Well after not doing much scrapping at all in 2014, my New Year's resolution is to do much more in 2015! My baby girl is now nearly 3 months old and with the busy Christmas season behind us I have finally had a bit of time to scrap and get stuck into some online challenges! The first one that caught my eye is this gorgeous mood board at Scrap Around the World...


I was inspired by the soft pinks and greens in the mood board, as well as the flowers, the wood grain, and the ornate frames. This is the double page layout that I created...
'Brand New Baby''

This is the first layout that I've completed of my darling little Eleanor... She was just 5 hours old in these photos... The first 3 months have flown by and I can't believe how much she has grown already!!

For my layout I used the Simple Stories 'Hello Baby' patterned papers and stickers with some Prima flowers and Heidi Swapp butterflies on there as well.

Here are some closeups so that you can see the details...

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout :)
