ScrapFriends - Colour Palette Challenge Jan 2013

Well, well, well!  I really wanted to give the latest colour challenge over at ScrapFriends a go!  And I've done it!  It's been sitting on my desk half done for over a week.  And when I say half done, I actually mean photos chosen, trimmed and a selection of paper out of the stash lol. 
Here is the inspirational photo:
Cool hey!

Here is my take on it:
Apologies for the really bad photo... night time and batteries for my super duper new flash were donated to Ninky Nonk
Sooo... Most of my green isn't quite the same as in the palette... but I kind of didn't look at the picture again before I started.  Oh well... it's still pretty bright lol.  Also, not as much white space as I would have liked, but you have to give me credit for getting a DOZEN photos onto a double page!  I'm really happy to have this page done... I find it SO hard to do the Christmas photos... just TOO many to choose from :-)  I really do need to start getting into off the page a bit more... maybe some mini-albums???

Well, I'm going to keep it short and sweet tonight as it is WAY past my bedtime.  Head over here if you would like to give this challenge a go or have a squiz at other entrants and of course the examples from the DT.  LOVE their examples!!!  Felicity Wilson's take... OMG!  AMAZING!!! 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a beautiful day xoxox

Scrap the Boys... January Challenge!!!

SO!!!  I have finally finished a page!  I thought I would have heaps of time over the school holidays to scrap... but it really just hasn't happened.  I've been working extra shifts, which means I've been rather tired lately.  So if I haven't been busy with the boys, I've been in some kind of unkown zombie state lol... Oh well, with Christmas over and done with, Ev's birthday also passed (I can't believe he's 7 now!) and the Lego constructed, hopefully I will get my but into gear again.  I really haven't scrapped regularly for a while now... and I can blame my mojo... but I really think I'm just out of practice... yep scrapbooking is definitely an acquired skill here... no natural artistic ability to speak of AT ALL :-b

Ok, so here is the page--->

The challenge over at Scrap the Boys was to scrap your boys favourite holiday/summer activity.  Yep, like a lot of boys, my two LOOOVE water!!!  Any water, any time... doesn't even matter what the temperature is... the fun of the water trumps cold weather every time!  Love the colours in this layout!!!  Okeedokee so I'm going to make this shortish and sweet... my boys have been sitting in front of the telly for far too long on this beautiful day!!!  So head over here if you want to check out all the CT's amazing examples and join in the challenge!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a SUPER day!
