Cheeky Smile

Well I think the title says it all with this photo of Alex!!!


I used the sketch 15th September from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.
Did quite well and kept to it!!!

 

The challenge closes at the end of the month....so still lots of time to get scrapping!!!!!

Thanks for visiting!!

Sharon

These photos of Sharon were taken on her birthday...and for some reason I printed two....so rather than throw one away I scrapped them both!!!! But there really is only one Sharon!


I used the sketch from My Scraps & More - 91....


....and although I started off well I seemed to veer off...although the basic papers are there!!!

The challenge closes at the end of the month so still time to get scrapping!!

Scrapping Everyday Miracles have a mini crop at the moment and I am also entering this in the Challenge 5 - Colour Inspiration


The Mini crop finishes at the end of the month so still time to join in!!

Vintage!

The challenge at Scrap Africa is vintage....and this photo is certainly that as it is over 50 years old!!! It shows me and a friend who lived a couple of doors down when we were in our early teens....we are still in touch even now!!!


The challenge closes at the end of the month so still time to get scrapping!!

I also recently found another vintage blog called...Vintage Utfordring and the requirement for their challenge 87 is at least 3 layers...and I certainly have that!!!

Their challenge closes 28th September...so still time to enter!!

Showtime

Cassie went to dance classes at the beginning of the year and they put a show on in April.  Cassie loved her outfits and enjoyed the show...but when it had finished she decided that she didn't want to do it any more.....and joined a football club!!!!!!  So had to scrap these photos as there will probably be no more!! LOL


I used the sketch from Scrap Our Stash.....


I don't do 'white' space very well but did follow the sketch!!
The added criteria was.....include any item from your stash that starts A, B, C and also use 1 Journal card, 2 Photos and 3 Patterned Paper ( I actually used 4...hope that is ok!!)
My A = Arrow, Alpha's, B = Bow, Butterfly and C = Cardstock (Black and Yellow)

The challenge ends at the end of the month!!

Slip Sliding

These photos were from a day that the children spent at a Mega Fun Day at Rayleigh.....it was a taster of what they could do during the summer holidays and was all FREE!!  It was a super day and they had the Mega water slide out....the children loved it!!!!!  They got lots of exercise walking back up to the top to go again!!



I used the sketch 29 from Kreative Koncepts whose challenge closes at the end of the month.  

I am also entering it into the mini crop challenge 6 at Scrapping Everyday Miracles/New Heart challenges which is a TicTacToe.


I used the diagonal 3 photos, sketch and bling.

The challenge closes at the end of the month...so lots of time still to enter and do the other mini crop challenges too!

OMG!!

I think these photos of Alex and quite scary!!! He is soooo high up....didn't think I was afraid of heights but I couldn't do that!!!!!!  He had to get on the little platform and then throw himself off and grab the rope!!!!! EKE!!!  Alex is only 10 so I think he was very brave!!


I used the sketch from Sketches in Thyme - 129...and did keep to it mostly!! LOL

Goalie!!

Nicholas likes to play in goal....very difficult to get close up photos though!!!


The challenge at Red Carpet Studio is based on the film 'Any Given Sunday' which centers around a fictional losing football team, and their quest to regain greatness once again!!  So a layout of Nicholas playing football was ideal!!

The challenges closes on the 20th September so lots of time to get your layouts done!!
