Picture Perfect

Skissedilla # 177

I've admired the Skissedilla blog for a long time.  I tried to do a layout for sketch #176 but didn't quite finish in time so luckily I could adapt it for this weeks great sketch!

The transparency and most of the papers are by ColorConspiracy.  I really had my mind set on using a white film strip so I ended up making it from scratch on my computer. 

Pictured is my son whilst going down a slide.  I love this photo.

Black With Two September Challenge

I've been checking out the Black With Two blog for a while and finally took the plunge!  The challenge was to use mint green and purple.  I had various shades of purple but not much minty-green so I did a lot of painting.  It's been a long time since I did a layout on black cardstock so I was a little nervous about how it would turn out, but I love the result! 
Pictured is my gorgeous niece, Monika, whom I have the pleasure of looking after once a week.

Scrap the Boys!

I'm very excited to be on the Scrap The Boys Creative Team!  What a wonderful challenge blog!  I enjoy gathering inspiration from all the gorgeous boy pages created.

Here is my September CT layout:

I just love the Francheville film strip washi and chipboard frames. Other products I've used include My Mind's Eye 'On the Bright Side' paper (this one is "Sawyer"), Kaisercraft 'Check In' tokens and transparency, and Heidi Grace plastic tabs.

A 'just because' layout for a change!

What a sweet little face....looking at the photo you wouldn't know that he'd just had a major tantrum seconds beforehand because I made him put on his hoodie.
Loving the wood-look paper. This one's from the Kaisercraft Attitude range.
