The first three are layouts I did based on three challenges for Scrapbooking from Scratch! Peta was awesome and bought her fabulous store to the retreat! what a mammoth effort so thanks Peta!!!
The first challenge was a quote which I actually used on a layout I don't have to show you!! i used a photo of Crystal Goulding, so she has it (although she hasn't posted it on her blog yet!!!!)
The next was a color challenge. The colors were mustard yellow, aqua and white. I love this cheeky photo of Will!
Next was a sketch.........
This is my "Lil fish". She LOVES swimming!!! lots of bright colours, texture paste ans misting!!!
This one was also part of the challenges for the weekend! it was another sketch set by Raquel Bowman from A piece of cake designs!!! Love her kits so I definately wanted to be in the running to win a voucher to buy her kits!!!
These photos are of my children and the children of my dearest friend! these children are just beautiful and they have become more like famliy than friends!!!

The rest of my layouts were just because layouts!
This one I used the new Crate paper kit from Scrapbooking from Scratch. I also pulled out some extremely old rubons!!!

How cool are these new Heidi Swapp frames!!!??
Now you may have noticed that I use a lot of circles on my layouts!!! I have for a long time! I love using the off cuts from cutting them out too!! Well let me tell you......it has become a trend!!! all my friends have started doing the same!!!! LOL!!! I told them it was addictive!!!They pulled out the cricut and started cutting!!! But just remember who started this trend!!!!
Now while I was there you may remember me saying that I participated in a photo swap and I did a layout for Raquel.
