Scrap The Boys - March

31 - 10 -09

Scrap the Boys is back and the challenge for this month is:


The challenge is to use a specific TIME as your layout's title.

- Capture a moment in your day that you want to remember, part of your daily routine or something special the kids or hubby has on, or a specific day or moment that you want to remember. You then need to use that time/date as your layout title.

I decided to choose 31/10/09 "Halloween" as my title as I just love this pic of Luke getting into character for Halloween.

Used some BG and Pink Paislee pp's & embellishments and kept it fairly simple so that the focus was on the photo.

Just a Little Toot!

Was happy to find that my LO for Let's Get Shabby received an Honourable mention. This was my 1st time participating here and I really enjoyed the Denim and Lace Challenge. Thanks girls, you made my day!!

A New Exciting Challenge Site!!

The lovely talented Nadia Cannizzo has decided to start up a new Challenge blog called "Once Upon a Sketch" with Irma Peredne and Lou Dalhstrom.

So what are they all about???

The main aim here is to get people journalling...telling their story. It seems as though people are not journalling on their pages as much as they used to. I have to say I am guilty of that too...A lot of us these days tend to go for more pretty or artistic pages and forget the journalling, which is probably the reason we all started scrapbooking.

How will this work?

Twice a month, we will provide you with a sketch as inspiration and ask that the only other requirement will be to add some journalling on your pages...or cards..Yes ...this is also for can adjust the sketch and make a card from it...and try to add some journalling somewhere. Also beside traditional layout scrappers and card makers, artists that do art journals, and/or altered art are also welcome. Only requirement is that you use the sketch AND add some journaling.

All of the winners will be picked by out Design Team and you will have the chance to be a Guest Designer or to win a prize as well.

And there is a fab giveaway to be won to get things started.
If you want to win this pop on over to Once Upon a Sketch and get the details:
