Get Picky....

Well after three attempts at this sketch I finally have this layout to enter for this months challenge at Get picky!!!
I ended up using two smaller photos ,mounting one on patterned paper as I just couldnt get my other layouts with a larger photo to work. I loved the sketch but nothing was working!!!!!I have had these photos for ages to scrap and although not the best photos I wanted to record the memory for Will. He had his tonsils out late last year and  all his classmates gave him this envelope full of get well wishes! Once again I used up some more rub on alphabets!!!
This layout was intended for this sketch and I love this layout better but I ended up moving too many elements around for it to qualify. But now I have another layout i love! The photo is another one of Maya and her friend Gemma.
 I have also been doing some just because scrappin.........and loving it!!!! Heres a couple to share....
Once again Maya and Gemma......and some older dear Lizzy papers (I told you I was trying to use my stash!!)
And this one using some Cosmo Cricket. These are my nieces and Will and Maya one day  a few months ago when I took them down to port Fairy for a play and ice cream. I really wanted them all to have lollipops for the photo but Miss Maya (being Miss Maya had to have ice cream...and NO she wasnt having both!!!!!)
And you might have noticed I photographed this Layout before I wrote in the date on my journalling strip....oops!!! Its on there now!!!
I am also SO excited.....I got a spot to go Camp Mojo in July next year!!! i am so excited that I will finally get to meet some of my bestie scrappin, online buddies and some very talented people who I admire!!!!Thanks so much to Debbie Lawrence and Bridge Hatton for sharing their tables with me!!! I seriously cant wait! I have even booked my flights!!!!!
Til next time,  happy scrappin'! Eb xxx

Im back.....

Wowsers!!! two posts in one day!!! I forgot to show you this layout that I completed a couple of days ago. These are older photos of Maya and its about her little "ritual" . Whenever she is tired, grumpy, sad or unwell she goes and gets her teddies, pillow and dummy. Although she now only has dummy for night time (a real issue at the moment to get her to give it up!!! have tried dummy fairies....everything!!!!).
They are just cute little quirky memories she might like to know about when she grows older!!!

Thanks again!!! I promise I wont be back again today!!! Eb xx

Finding new uses......

I have been looking around my scrap room lately almost cringeing thinking about all the product I have that I no longer use. A little while ago I did have a huge clean up and gave a lot of stuff away. But for those who don't know I use to own my own scrap store about 4 years ago. While having my own store I accumulated a LOT of stuff most of which still sits in containers or drawers in my room. I almost feel sick to think of how much money I have spent over the years on these supplies. These days I am much better with my purchases in the way that when I buy something I use it straight away. I dont feel guilty then we I purchase more!!!! However I still have all these things like rubons that I havent used so last night I pulled out a book of "transfers on the go" by K and Co which I have had for 4 years and decided to revamp them. One of these books had quotes and phrases in it...all with great different fonts so I cut out individual letters to create this funky background. What do you think????
They werent the easiest rubons to use but I love the effect. I have a huge bucket of old Making Memories rubons to get through now!!! It feels great to use old product and still be happy with the result!!!
Thanks for popping by and for your encouraging comments! Eb xx

A proud layout....

Willis just loving school. He seems to excel in everything he does which makes us so proud. However he is competitive.......he HATES getting anything wrong!!!He will screw up a drawing if its not "perfect"......he'll crack a wammie if he spells a word wrong!!! It can be so hard sometimes teaching him that its more than ok to get things wrong!!! So I did this layout to show him how proud we are of him all the time.

I used the outter part from some cool scrapware corrugated letters.I love how it has turned out. used some Crate Paper school spirit papers....
Thanks for popping by and for all your kind comments!!! I really love reading them all!

New month= new challenges......

I have said it before but I love the start of a new month.I love doing all the new challenges on all my favourite challenge sites!!! The dilemma is which one to do first!So i have done these two over the weekend!

This one was for the challenge at Scrap the girls.It was a puzzle piece challenge.For those thinking of doing it my tip would be to print out the puzzle pieces and tick them off as you have used them so you dont use them more than once!!Thats what I did anyway!!! (sorry about this looks so washed out. Its much more vibrant IRL!!!)
And this is for the challenge at Kraft it up! The challenge is to use decorative edges!! I have used Die cut paper, punches, paper frills and pink paislee artisian elements! I think thats got decorative edges taken care of!!!!!

Anyway, thanks for popping by! Dont forget to check out the challenges at scrap the boys this month. they are awesome!!!!!

Introducing Evanthe.....

Just popped in to share my latest layouts created with the newest kit in the Storyboard range "Evanthe".

This kit was awesome as usual and had so many bits and pieces to it! The papers are a a mixture of crate paper and sass and lots of beautifultrims, journalling spots and even some stamps!!! so head over here to get yourself a kit, but be quick they sell out very fast!!!
