Scrap the sketches update...

Just a quick post to show you my next LO for the comp at Scrapability sketches.....

Its a LO about the day Maya copied me taking photos on my lounge room floor of my yummy Nellie G Buttons.....My Little Copycat!!

Notmuch else to report...Maya has broncitis at the moment and is very demanding. Her attitude and behaviour has been terrible the last few days so am feeling very tired and drained. What is she going to be like when shes 16???!!!

Anyway,off to maybe scrap. Thanks for popping by, Eb xx

Just a few to share..

Just have a few layouts to share this time. This one I did for one of the challenges at the Artypants Cyber Crop last weekend. We had to use these colors and include somemasking. Well my masking didn't turn outhow I wanted it too but just went with it. The layout is all about Will and how his behaviour is like that of a little monster lately. Don't know if its an age thing or because its getting towards the end of the year but he seems to have gained an attitude and lost his manners. He also needs somuch more direction than he usually does. He won't entertain himself at all and therefore bugs everyone especially Maya all the time to be doing something ALL of the time.Anyway hope my old Will returns soon!!!!

This two are based on this months sketches at Scrapability Sketches.Wellother than our TV dying on us on Friday night not much else to report...very quiet at the moment whichI am loving before the hype of chrissy starts. I just agreed to stay on at Scrapapple as their DT next year which is exciting. Thought they may of wanted rid of us but they are happy for us to stay on! YAH!

Anyway have a great day, thanks for popping by.

A Horse called Mojo...

Just thought I would post these layouts. They are about Maya's first time riding a horse. We were on holidays in Merimbula at the time. We thought that Maya would be petrified but she beamed from ear to ear the whole time. He was a gorgeous horse called MOJO....

You can find the step by stepdirections for this on Paula's Scrapbooking Place blog.

And here is Will loving his turn riding MOJO.....

I just came here to post these and in the comments section was an ad for viagra!!! Is anyone else getting these silly spam like comments???? Very annoying!!

Anyway, must go pick up Will from School.Hoping to scrap this weekend during the Artypants CC. Steve is diving all day Sunday so I told himit was only fair that I could scrap Saturday!

Thanks for popping by, Ebony

WEEK 6 @ Paula's....

Wow! We have reached the final weekof challenges over at Paula's. This week I set the challenge to create a layout using PAINT or GLIMMERMIST in a CREATIVE way onto the background.

Here is my sample. I love this photo of Will drawing in the sand at Pambula Beach NSW. I used glimmermist (denim blue) to create the look of sparayed water and little pools of water to represent the beach. I tried to keep it all looking natural in color so used embellies like string to achieve this.
I also set a bonus challenge that originally allowed everybody the weekend to do, but I got complaints about this so extended it until this Wednesday.You have no idea.....might think twice about organising things like this again! Anyway The challenge was to create a layout using more than one photo about a celebration.I did a layout about our Esater Egg hunt this year. Not my fav LO but its another one for the album.

There is a great competition starting over at Scrapability Sketches. If you love sketch challenges you should head over here and sign up.

Have done a few more LO's this week but haven't taken photos yet so will be back tomorrow to show you those.
