3 Santa's little helper

The challenge at Scrapology was to use Trellising on our layout, they also provided a lovely sketch.
Luckily I'm currently borrowing my friends die that looks just like trellising.
I based the colours around the card I had saying "Santas little helper", Rys work shirt & a touch of gold to glam it up a bit.

2 Going Dotty

The technique this month in Simple Recipes* is to create a paint confetti look. Using the sketch, which I rotated 90 degrees CCW, I created this layout of my sister doing her work experience 9 years ago.
The dots are a mixture of poster paint dots, some topped with glossy accents & melted beads.
I tried to keep the dotty theme going with the papers I used & washi tape.

0 A Fresh Start

Sometimes you come across a layout that you love, want to scraplift & dont want to alter too much about the placement/items etc. I found such a layout on UKScrappers during a challenge, if you're a member on uks you can see it HERE.

I had several other photos to go with the main photo so turned it into a double layout.

1 Road Trip, & the hop keeps going.

Remember last monday I took part in the blog hop that just keeps getting bigger & bigger!? Well if you dont you can have a look HERE, if you do then you might be interested in looking at Ruths blog HERE as she continues the hop. Fay is still planning to do a post but as life has currently got in the way (we all know that feeling) I've told her not to sweat the small stuff, and post it when she is able to.

I would like to show you a layout I made for a UKScrappers weekly challenge using a sketch from Me & Mine blog.
I suddenly realised that black chevron washi tape was perfect for tyre tracks & buttons with a piece of yellow card in the centre matched the wheels on the jeep. I stuck to the colours of the jeep, such as the paint work, wheels, & the imagery of driving through muddy land giving brown.

3 Shh...

Simple layouts feel like I'm kind of cheating, but I do love this one I made. It started with, yes you guessed it, a challenge from the Refresh Your Craft & Soul event, to keep it clean & simple, something I dont tend to do with my layouts.
I knew I wanted to use a polaroid frame to highlight Kai in the photo. Initially I went looking for a sheet of paper to match the colour of Kai's outfit. I came across this one & allowed the image on it to lead me. I took the colours from the hot air balloon for the frame & tags. I took some chipboard clouds & covered them with white flock, the same with 2 brads. Finally I tried to copy the font by the image to use on the tags.

2 A Cats Christmas Joy

Dont you just love a sketch! Jennifer gave one as part of her Refresh your Craft and Soul event so I went looking for photos. Last month we sadly had to have Blue, our cat, put down as he was so very very ill, and it was lovely to come across photos of him so well and happy. They were from our first christmas together back in 2002. Back then it was rather fashionable to use the colour blue in the christmas decorations so I wanted to use that colour on the page.

The title are letters covered in micro beads & then glossy accents. & I had to use these cat wood veneers, so cute!

3 Strong Boy

Teal, orange and white are beautiful colours when put together, and these are the colours Jennifer challenged us to use using a colour palette.

These colours reminded me of the All About A Boy paper range so I located mine and set to work on a layout.
