A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hello.....thought it was time to introduce you to Eric! 
Eric is my daughters new puppy that has turned our 
household upside down. He is the sweetest little creature 
that stops me getting things done. He is very distracting 
with his cuteness and wanting to play or sleep at my feet 
the moment I stand still.  I thought this lovely chipboard 
title And so my story begins....border was perfect for 
the first layout I scrapped of Leah and Eric meeting for 
the very first time. 
Sorry but there will no doubt be plenty more Eric the Dog 
scrapbook layouts that I will be sharing with you!!!

Today I have more chipboard from A2Z Scraplets that 
I'd like to share with you.  Aren't they just so cute 
and so easy to use on a layout. 
The cute arrow words are from the new August Release. 
The Arrow Words 11 pack comes with 8 different 
arrows, 3 of those with words on them. I have 
used all 8 arrows here on my layout.

Sketchy Boards Challenge DT Layout - August

Sketchy Boards DT Challenge Layout 

Well hello there!
Just wanting to share with you another 
layout that I have done. This one is 
for Sketchy Boards Challenge and is inspired 
by the sketch and colour/mood board. 

Whist I love the look of the mood board, purple 
is just a colour I really struggle with. So here 
is my layout with a little of the colours but 
mostly following the sketch.

Hope you can find the time to join us in 
this months challenge. Happy scrapping - Tanya x

A2Z Scraplets DT Challenge Layout - August

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a layout of my gorgeous aunt
for this months A2Z Scraplets challenge.

The challenge criteria is to use a new technique or 
new product. I have used some sewing pattern paper 
under my chipboard Beautiful title. 

Because my photo was small I decided to add the photo 
to a tag.The other chipboard pieces that I have used 
are actually Corner 25 flourishes.  
They are so versatile and don't need to just be 
used as corners as you can see from the pictures below.
They have been lightly inked all the chipboard with 
ground expresso distress ink. 

Have a wonderful day. Thanks for stopping by xxx

Hey there, thanks so much for stopping by for a little look!
 Time to share another layout with you.
I'm loving scrapbooking older photos. This photo is 
20 years old as it was taken at my best friend 
Keera and Terry's wedding. 

The A2Z Scraplets chipboard that I've used is the 
flourish 250916 which I have cut in half to put either 
side of my photo. I have gessoed the piece and rubbed 
it with Prima Metallique Wax which is something I'm 
loving using. The Love and Cherish pieces are from 
the Mini Wordlets Set 1 FamilyThey have been 
embossed with Aged Taupe embossing powder.

Sketchy Boards Challenge DT Layout - July

Howdy! Just sharing with you another layout 
I have done for Sketchy Boards Challenge.

The Autumn colours of the mood board were perfect 
for the old sepia coloured photos I used in this layout. 
Sometimes it is hard to scrap old photos that probably 
aren't the best photos but they share some wonderful 
memories, they still need to be scrapped. There is no 
point only using photos that don't have much meaning but 
the are good photos for scrapbooking. The photo should 
be the main reason you are scrapbooking a layout.

ARTastic DT Layout - July

Another new month which means another layout challenge 
to share with you. Below is the layout I did for 
ARTastic. The requirement criteria was to use pen on 
your layout. I drew the circles and squiggly lines on 
my layout. Hopefully you can find the time to join in 
with our challenge this month.

Good Morning

Here a layout I have done of me and my very best friend 
of 40 years.
I love the A2Z Scraplets chipboard, looks effective 
framing our photo. The chipboard is called 
Kylie's Spoked Circles. There are 3 in the packet 
and I have used the large piece. The Friends chipboard 
also comes in a packet with other words.

A2Z Scraplets DT Layout

Hi Guys
Thought I would share a layout that I have done of my dad 
and I on my wedding day. Yesterday my Dad would have been 
90 years old. Hard to believe he hasn't been with us for 
the last 20 years. 
I still get sad about all the things he has missed out on, 
he would have loved my kids sense of humour, modern technology 
would have baffled him big time. I still think of how he used a calculator, he didn't trust them. He would add up things with the calculator and then add it up with pen and paper to see if the calculator was right!!

Love and miss you Dad xxx

son and next month a 19 year old daughter!!!

Harlequin Border and Pieces I have only used

Thanks for stopping by. Tanya xx

A2Z Scraplets May DT Layout

Hello lovelies
Just sharing another layout with you. 
This one is the A2Z Scraplets May 
challenge layout.

Below is the sketch, I have turned in on its 
side so my photos the different direction. 
I love the brickwork chipboard that I used.

thought the more natural look worked in well 
with the orange tones.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day xxx
