Just in time.....

Well yesterday was a terrible day weather wise here so what better thing to do...SCRAP! We all had the laziest day...Steve watched movies, Will played the playstation and other things and Maya filled our rumpus room with her dolls and accessories. So I sat down in my scrap room and created.
I just made it in time to create a layout for this months scrap the boys challenge.....

I used one of the paper bags I use to write wills lunch orders on and a little piece of a note paper that my mum had written me a note on which i had floating around my scrap room. This layout is about Will. He is such a creative soul. We could be chatting about things and its like a light bulb goes off in his head and he runs off to gather some pens, paper etc and he has to write something...often little stories or he makes cards or drawings.....its quite funny to watch. He becomes all excited and says"that gives me an idea!!!". In this photo he is making his dad a card to say congratulations on getting a new job. I had just told him and straight away he says,"Im gonna make him  card!". And off he went!
I have been creating other things a new pizza boz kit for the Imagination Factory...which I forgot to photograph!!!!!!
So if off now to try and create a new blog banner.....wish me luck!

The same photos.....

 yep....some of these pics I have scrapped before but I wanted to scrap the again...probably because I have been really slack at taking photos lately and am in desperate need of some new ones!!! So here are two more layouts for some challenge blogs.

                This is for "show us your stuff". The challenge is to use multiple photos and stripes.
                       Yes there is stripes..... I just kinda got carried away and added lots of other things too. !!!          
                       My handmade embellie is a "charms creations lollipop"
Have used lots of new papers by Bella! which I picked up at spotlight...awesome range!Also used my new stamps by 7 Gypsies, some more circles (surprised?), some crate chippies and some brads...

This layout is using the latest sketch at "STUCK!"....
I took these photos of Maya while she was playing with her dolls and teddies. She was whispering into her dolls cute!

Trying to use up some old products like the Echo Park playground papers, some Jilliebean soup journal tags, and more circles!!
Thanks for stopping by,Eb xx

Lots and lots of challenge fun!!!!

WARNING: PHOTO HEAVY!!!! You might need a cuppa!!!

This last month has seen me reducing dramatically the amount of design team commitments I have as I just felt I needed a break from "having" to create. Don't get me wrong I loved every minute of being on each and every design team but i just need a little break. This week also saw me resign from my position at Storyboard kits.( Yep I will alter my blog Crystal!!) So I now am on Scrapware and The Imagination Factory teams and am happy with that.....for now anyway!!!
So because of this free scrapping time I have been having fun participating in some of the cool challenge blogs...and its only early in the month...look out by the end of the month!!!!
So this first one is using some of the cool embellies made by Charms Creations.....
These photos of Maya were taken just before taking to the stage in her first dance concert.

 This one is using the sketch at "Show us your stuff"........ My handmade embellies are buttons made by my friend Nellie G  Designs.Yep another soccer photo and more circles. These cool circles are made by Scrapware!!!! LOVE them!!!!
 This one is for the challenge at "White with one". The challenge is to use white, pale pink and journal on the photo....
                                                        More Scrapware chippies......
 This one is for the "Scrap the Girls Challenge". The challenge is to use clips and stationery items on your page.
I love this photo with Bridgey and Tatum......miss you girls xx...and more scrapware (Ange is gonna love this post!!!)

 This is the first sketch over at " Stuck!" this month....yep another scrapware frame!!! (omg I sound like an advertisement.....I promise it wasn't planned!!!!)  PS this is a really crappy photo as my LO is quite creased and I kept getting shadows...
 And lastly a "just cos I can" layout!!!! Can you guess where the chippies from???? LOL!!!

Anyway...if you got through all of that...well done!!!!! Thanks for stopping by..
