Kraft Plus October challenge

Lookie here!  Second blog post in a month... go me!  When I saw the October challenge over at the Kraft Plus blog I immediately had a photo in mind... with some itty bitty shells ready to go!  Here is the challenge...

And here is my take on it...

I got the ol' paints and imapasto out last night and had a bit of play.  A very simple layout, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :-)  Especially since it's a budget friendly layout... shells from the beach, sand from the sand pit, a li'l metal embellishment from a candle, a button and a flair button from Flutterby Designs (ahhh, there's that feather!).  Apologies, it isn't the greatest photo, as it's a rather rainy day here today.  I promise it does look more vibrant in real life... there is even a touch of glitter on the 'water'... but you wouldn't know it. 
So there you have it!  My second layout for the month (just)... let's see how we go on my retreat next weekend lol 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a beautiful day xoxox

123 Challenge - October 2015!

Hi!  Yep, I'm still alive and kicking.  I have been churning out the odd layout here and there... but not an awful lot.  My body has not been happy lately and it really does have an affect on your mind :-(  But anyway... I am heading off to a retreat next month so I REALLY need to find some mojo, and what better way than with a challenge or two.  You never know... I might go for the two!

Okay, so here is my entry for the October challenge over at 123-Challenge blog.  The criteria are spots, lime and 'today'.  I may have gone a little over board on the spots and lime... you may need your sunnies!!!

Green and yellow are my all time favourite colours... always have been, always will be, so I had lots of fun doing this layout!  Thanks for the much needed mojo boost 123-Challenge blog!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a SUPER day!

Scrap the Boys - August Challenge

Hi!  Well I haven't been around much...  just generally busy or not feeling creative.  Although I did complete this layout a couple of weeks ago for the August Challenge over at Scrap the Boys. My friend came over for the evening and witnessed a woman possessed lol. I just went absolutely crazy on this layout!
The challenge is to do some 'profiling'... so I went to work putting down some of the things that make my eldest son tick... not a simple thing lol. His brain is going at a million miles an hour ALL THE TIME!!!  When he was little he became completely obsessed with Buzz Lightyear, and then Ben 10.  We worked with a psychologist and occupational therapist, and one goal was to broaden his intetests to help deal with his obsessive behaviour.   It makes me laugh now to think of this!  Now he is interested in MANY things.  He still becomes totally obsessed... he just has more to choose from.  I get tired just thinking about everything that goes on in that little head of his!
So anyway.. here is my layout.   It's kind if messy and crazy... just like my little boy ♡♡♡  I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by :-)

Scrap the Boys: June Challenge

It's been so long since I've been here!  Hi!  I really haven't been scrapping a whole lot lately... either busy or just can't be bothered lol. But I did scrap with a friend a couple of weeks ago.  I thought my layout would suit Scrap the Boys latest challenge... to scrap a BIG photo.  I've had this photo siting around waiting for this challenge lol.  My cute little guy doing a bit of colouring!  His older brother LOVES art, but this guy isn't as 'into it'.  So when I stumbled across him sitting quietly (also something of a rarity for Royce) colouring I had to run for the camera!  I've even added the cute little heart he was colouring to my page :-)

Well that's it from me... it's school holidays here so I better go make the most of it... love having my boys home with me ♡♡♡  If you want to be super quick and have a go at this challenge head here.  Hope you're having a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by xoxo
