Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge

I loved this sketch challenge over at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge Blog.
Here is my page, not really happy with the end result but no matter how long I looked/added/removed items it just seems to be missing something so I have left it at this.
I so do love playing with water color paints at present :)

This is the sketch.

I had a little helper taking the photos today...look at the little toes at the side of this photo, so cute!
How could I not add some photos of my little helper as well :)

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

I created this page for the quote challenge over at Scrapbooking From Scratch.
The quote this month is 'Every Summer Has a Story'.
Once I read this quote I knew exactly what photo I was going to use. It is one of my mum being a bit silly at the beach many years ago, has the photo is black and white I use bright colours to help lift the page.
Found some lovely old stash rubons in my draw which were perfect to use here.

Love the effect that using 3 different water colours on the background has made. Thanks for stopping by :)

Sweet Excited snd Sassy

Over at Show Us Your Stuff this month's challenge is to use either words: excite, excited, exciting on your layout. I used excited as you can see on my page below.
Just love this photo of Zoe with Brett, she was so excited getting to have a cuddle, just look at her face :)
Finally got my sewing machine out on this page. Also got to use up some scrap pieces of patterned paper as well as some old stash again.

Well thanks for stopping by :)

Black Red White

Just love this colour combo and this is what Black With 2 challenge is this month.
I played with my watercolor paints to splatter paint both red and white on the black cardstock, some blended together and I ended up with some pink spots. But I thought this gives the page a bit of character.
I pulled out my 6 x 6 pad of Pink Paislee papers, have so much that I thought it was time I used some of it up.
I had a bit of an accident with my liquid glue at the bottom left hand side, thanks goodness it isn't has noticeable in the photo as on the layout it self.

You can see the dried glue more so in this photo just above, oh well it all adds to the character to the page, lol.

A Just Because Layout

I started creating this page for a challenge but it didn't fit the selection criteria so it had become a 'just because' layout. I do love how it turned out, the colours and Prima papers I used. I tried a technique that was in the latest issue of Scrapbooking Memories. Using stamps that you have wiped the edges with a cloth/baby wipe so it blends the edges of the stamps into your background. Don't know if I got it exactly right but I do like the softer edging of the stamp.
Here are a few close up of some of the details.

Well thanks so much for stopping by and looking at my work ♥

Scrap The Girls

This month's challenge at Scrap The Girls has been posted.
It is an easy one this month, a colour challenge...just use the colours Black + White + Green.
Here is my page, I used an old photo of my mum with her twin and younger sister.
I had fun playing with water colour paints on the background white cardstock. Dug out a lot of older bits and pieces too. For the hearts, I traced around chipboard shapes with black pen.
Now there are lots of awesome CT samples over on STG blog, so do check it out :)
You don't have to create a page if you don't want to, use you imagination ♥
Another lot of fantastic prizes up for grabs again this month too!
