Scrap The Girls

Scrap The Girls- November Challenge


This was a great challenge, loved the sketch 
from Scrap The Girls.
It was nice to do a more girly type layout.
Thanks for stopping by xx

Challenge YOUrself




One thing I very rarely scrapbook is a photo of just me!!
There is always a photo of my kids or hubby that needs 
scrapping, I never really think about scrapbooking a 
photo of myself. So taking on this challenge was really good.
I will definitely make time to take on this challenge again. 
Here I am enjoying my favourite past time in Las Vegas. 
Who doesn't love a frozen margarita or 10!!!!

Scrap Around The World - November Challenge

Scrap Around The World - November Challenge


What a gorgeous colour scheme for this months challenge


Here is my layout for the challenge. Got to love 
a selfie or two in front of the Christmas tree!!!
I have had this WOW chipboard piece for such a long 
time and I think it worked in perfect for this layout.
I love the red and white flair, just gives a little 
bit of colour to the layout without making it a 
Christmas overload. Thanks for stopping by xx

The Flair Studio Challenge - November




This months challenge was to use the colours black 
and white on our layout as well as a black and white 
photo and of course a lovely flair.


 


It was quiet appropriate that I use photos of my 
daughter for this layout as the only colours in her 
wardrobe are black and white and also grey. 
Her friends tease her regularly about how bright and 
colourful she is (NOT). She certainly doesn't care as that 
is her style and no one is going to change her....
and we wouldn't want her to change, she is gorgeous 
just the way she is!!!
OH.. and did I mention tomorrow is her last day 
of high school. (insert - sad teary mumma face) 

White With 1 November Challenge


White With 1 - November Challenge



Another great challenge from White With 1. 
They have picked my least favourite colour for 
this challenge. I don't own any grape/purple 
paper or embellishments but luckily I happened 
to have some Kaisercraft paint.
I must say I really really love this layout 
and grape/purple works really well with white. Who knows
 I might even use this colour again on another layout ;)
Thanks White with 1 for getting me out of my comfort zone.

123 October Challenge


123 Challenge - October Challenge



Here is my layout for the 123 Challenge. First 
time I have taken part in this challenge and I
really loved it. I like that you have to include a 
certain  colour, a word and a technique to the layout 
and the lime colour was exactly what I had intended 
using for this photo so it made it easy for me to decide 
which photo to use for this challenge.
Cheers girls, love you both xx

Isn't my girl just gorgeous





I've been busy sorting through photos on my computer. 
I quickly realised that I am about 3 years behind in 
scrapbooking Leah's photos. I have scrapped lots of her 
photos but its not up to date like I'd like it to be. 

So guess what is a priority at the moment? 
Yep...I have printed all the photos I want to scrap, 
I have them in order of how they need to go in her albums 
and now I am busy scrapping photos of my gorgeous girl 
who isn't so little anymore, she only has now more 
week of high school left. 
Wish I could press the rewind button and slow things down.

Must say I'm a little torn. I just don't want her to 
finish school and grow up but then part of me is 
excited for her and for what the future holds. 
On a positive, think of all the photos I can 
scrapbook of her and her new adventures. 
Wishing you the world of happiness my gorgeous girl xxx

White...with 1

White...with 1 'Peach Puff' Challenge





Hi, thanks for stopping by....
So glad I joined in this month's challenge as I'm 
really happy with the end result.
I really should create layouts using peach more often, 
it is such a pretty colour but one I would have never  
chosen if it wasn't for this challenge. 
 And yes my darling girl does 
make my world happy. Love you Leah xx


Scrapping Outback October 'White with a twist' Rainbow Challenge



Scrapping Outback 'White with a twist' Rainbow Challenge



This was a fun challenge. I got to use my new 
LindysStampGang Sprays and have a little play around. 
My rainbow isn't as bright as the inspiration above but 
I'm not a bright and colourful kind of layout girl. 
While I love bright layouts, mine are always 
a little more subdued. Maybe thats a challenge for me, 
get out of my comfort zone and brighten it up!!!
Have a wonderful day x

WOW - Words or Whatever October Challenge



WOW Words Or Whatever - Triple Treat October Challenge



These lovely chipboard pieces were sent to us to use in 
this months challenge. It is the first time I have participated 
in the WOW challenge and I'm glad I joined in.
I love using chipboard on my layouts, you can do so much with it. 
I chose to cut it up, spray with mists and also cover some pieces with  crackle accents.

Kraft Plus - Inspired by Nature October Challenge


Kraft Plus  - Inspired by Nature October Challenge 



Great idea for a mood board this month.
Really enjoying taking part in these challenges.



Again I loved participating in this challenge. 
I must say I have never added feathers or nature 
items to my layouts before. What a great idea. 
For something different I stamped a butterfly on the 
leaf that I used and I also had wash tape with a 
butterfly on it. My other piece of nature was the part 
of a twig that I put near the twine.
Happy scrapping everyone x

I had a very productive day and night yesterday at my 
favourite scrapbook shop - Somewhere To Scrap in Brisbane.
We had lots of fun and laughs with the lovely girls. 
Here are just a few of the layouts that I did.






Enjoy whats left of the weekend. Happy scrapping x

Tuesday, 15 September 2015


Finally thought it was time to take this photo out of the 
frame it has been in for years and scrapbook it. 
I always find it hard to scrapbook such a big photo as it doesn't leave much room on the page to embellish. Tanya x

This layout was a work in progress. I kept walking passed the layout and I would add something new to it each time. Although I've had cogs for a long time I've never used them as I have trouble placing them so I bit the bullet and put some metal and chipboard ones on this layout. Must say I don't mind them either.
Enjoy your weekend x

Off the Rails Scrapbooking - Moodboard Challenge




 Off the Rails Scrapbooking - September Challenge




I just love the colours in this mood board.


Quite a busy layout for me, but I'm really enjoying playing around with gesso, inks, stamps, chipboard and microbeads. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog x

Kraft + Tri Hard September Challenge


This is Septembers challenge at Kraft +


 Well here it is, I've stepped out of my  comfort zone to participate in this challenge. This is a first for me.
I enjoyed it so much that I'll be back to do more!!!


Such fun photos to scrap of my daughter and her friends at a charity day at school. The layout needed to be fun too, which is why I chose to use ink, stamps and distress paint. I always love a bit of hand stitching on layouts so I have stitched the red and pink triangles to keep with the challenge layout.
Have a great day x

I love this layout of Leah and her Nan. Shows the silliness these two get up to. A fun and easy layout to create.
