Rarotonga - SBT50

My layout for the challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50.
I was inspired by the island holiday theme. My daughter and family have just got back from a very relaxing week in Rarotonga. The girls loved the swimming and Madi, who used to be scared of waves, even mastered snorkelling!

Moana - Stuck?! Sketches

I loved this October 1st sketch at Stuck?! Sketches!
My daughter called and said Madi needed a Moana outfit for the following day (last minute, Charlie!!) and did I have anything in my stash that might work. I found a perfect handprinted table runner that I had bought at a craft fair years ago, some calico and a cheap chiffon scarf I bought for making burnt edge flowers! LOL! I am such a hoarder!!
Two hours later, 'Moana, a.k.a. Madison' :)

Mini Me - Double trouble STB

I was going to use this photo for last month's challenge at Scrap the Boys,  (Father's day)but things got hectic and it never got done, so when I saw the sketch for the October challenge I was ready to go! My title 'Mini Me - double trouble', pretty well sums up these two!

It's been a while since I did a project for the Southern Girls Challenge, but here is mine for "shake your groove!", a birthday card for my granddaughter's 4th birthday.

                    


Have a great weekend.

Scrap the Girls - sweet

Love the sketch at Scrap the Girls this month! I have been getting a little bored with my style and wanted to try something different, so I got out my stamps (some I have had for about 10 years!) and the Ken Oliver Liquid Metals that I bought at last years SENZ.



The sketch:


I am going to look at all my stamps in a new light!
Cheers,
Sue :)

The Sketch:

Cheers, Sue

Not happy! July 1st Stuck?! Sketches

My layout for the July 1st challenge at Stuck?! Sketches. Miss R had her grumpiest look on all the way to daycare in the first week when she realised they weren't going to the park. She wouldn't smile or even look at Mum! How to make a mother feel guilty!! By week 3 she was smiling and eager to go most days.

Adventure Seekers - CSI 229

Thank you Debbi for the comments on my blog and inspiring me to do a CSI challenge. Somehow the CSI link had disappeared from my list of challenges to check each month.
Any way, here is my layout for Case File No 229.



Case File No 229:

Evidence: plain cardstock, banner, vehicle, arrows, something loopy (the acetate road)
Testimony: Inspo words (Big smiles, Happy)

Cheers,

Beautiful - CS

My take on sketch #306 at Creative Scrappers. Miss H loved the little smash cake her Mum made for her 1st birthday - not that she got to eat more than a taste!! I have used lots of the Wild @ Heart embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla, a chevron and little tab from Charm's Creations, a flair from Funky Flairs and Prima flowers.



The sketch:

Cheers,
Sue :)
