Feeling Sketchy Challenge - Card Sketch 99

Here is my entry for the Card Sketch 99 Challenge over at Feeling Sketchy!

The weather has been really crappy for trying to get a decent photo of anything. 
I'll add a better image tomorrow if I get one!

Feeling Sketchy Layout 98 Challenge

Here is my entry for the Layout Sketch 98 over at Feeling Sketchy. 
The photo is a bit 'oops' - but the weather has not been very photography friendly!

Thanks for another great LO challenge Deb!

'Black With 2' September Challenge

Hi there!

I thought I'd get in early seeing as I forgot to upload last month's BW2 entry. 
Think all things PINK and YELLOW! 
Such a gorgeous colour combination!

This is my last month as a member of the BW2 Design Team as my term has come to an end. 
I have really enjoyed my time on the team!

Thanks for stopping by .... and I hope to see your layout in the BW2 Blog Gallery!

BW2 August Challenge

Hi folks!

I totally forgot to share this! I was awaiting its publication on the BW2 Blog, as it was put into the 'mid-month reveal' category ..... and the month got away on me.

Thanks for stopping by!

I Won!

I forgot to come back and post the results from the Castle Hill Show.
I won 1st and 2nd place for my Scrapbooking! SO exciting!

Feeling Sketchy

I loved the simplicity of this month's Feeling Sketchy sketch and tried to 
reflect that in my layout by not going overboard with embellishments. 
Sometimes it's nice to show restraint!

The sketch!

My layout!

Thanks for stopping by to take a look and leave some love!

A Weekend In Paris

Tattered Inspirations run the best scrapbooking retreats and the last one titled "Parisian Romance" (a couple of weekends ago) would have to have been the best one yet! Awesome company, superb catering and great shopping, not to mention the fabulous group of ladies to scrap with too!
Here are some shots from the weekend. I was thrilled to be awarded "Retreat Champion" 
behind Kerry Smith was awarded Retreat Grand Champion.

A bumpy start getting my scrap stash into the car!

 The Parisian Ladies!

My awesome table buddy - the lovely Kim Kendell.

 Ray (the official photographer) snapped this candid shot!

My Champion layout!

 Another challenge layout I created.

 My certificates (minus the prizes I forgot to photograph!)
Very grateful for the beautiful prizes.

What a TOPS weekend away and a great way to start the school holidays!

Black With 2 - April Challenge

Black With 2 (BW2) March Challenge

Well it's all things "lemon and thyme" over at BW2 this month. Not colours I would normally scrap together, but I knew I kept that BG 'Origins' PP around for a reason!

My title reads - "You Are My SUNSHINE" - using the word of the  month!

My Layout:

We recently celebrated my mum's 70th birthday and this photo was taken on the day of my 
mum and dad. It's very rare to get one of them both smiling nicely!

Thanks for another great challenge that pushed me out of my colour comfort zone!

Black With 2 Challenge

I rarely use black as a background, but I enjoy the monthly challenge over at Black With 2
and pink and blue happen to be my favourite colours too!
