Drizzling weather = scraptime!

Well a cooling off in the weather and a spotlessly clean scraproom - thanks to the discovery of termites last week :( meant I was free to scrap the past couple of days in the afternoons prior to school pickup.  I managed to produce the following double page spread inspired by the product challenge for March at http://www.scrapofdifference.com.au/ - Rubons!

Layouts for cybercrop

Well it's cybercrop weekend over at http://www.scrapofdifference.com.au/ and so far I've knocked the colour and sketch challenges on the head.  Technique and card to finish off tonight before midnight - let's hope the kids go down reasonably early tonight.....
my efforts for the colour challenge - blue & green

my attempt at the sketch

The theme of the weekend is smiles, frowns and funny faces - I think these both fit the bill!

Stickers for Emma

Some of my followers may remember Leanne from my Scrap of Difference Design Team.  Her beautiful daughter Emma was diagnosed with cancer last year and sadly is having a bit of a rough time of it at the moment with a new round of chemo to try and kill it.

Here is a link to a blog which tells Leanne & Emma story and also outlines how we can help brighten this beautiful little girl's day with something I'm sure we all have in our stash - stickers!
Please help if you can.

Weekend scrapping

Well I did scrap over the weekend - 2 layouts in fact, but sadly I don't have anything to share here.  They were gifts for a friend whose tiny tot twins were turning 1 on Saturday.  The good news is that they loved them and have them hanging on the wall already

Another layout for the Wedding album

It is my 10th wedding anniversary this month and I'm finally getting confident enough to scrap my wedding photos!  Here is today's efforts - photos of my mother and I before the ceremony.
The layout is from a build it handout by the talented Nic Howard from her colour class with Big Picture Classes.  Believe it or not I was going for "green" today :)  Love Nic's handmade leaves - wish I remembered to use this technique more often.

Girls Just Wanna have Fun!
