Memories

When I was about 11 my parents bought a caravan and it was sited at Wallasea.  I haven't been back for nearly 50 years and I went with my daughter and grandchildren last year and this is a layout from that day......took lots of photos so this is the first!!  The caravan site is still there...albeit much more modern!!  But sadly the pub had closed!!  Not that I was old enough to go in there but it was popular in those days!!


Studio challenges have a tictactoe .....

 

I have used a white background, blossoms and die cuts...but could go with the row stitching, die cuts and mint!!!  Decisions....decisions!!!

The challenge closes 8th November so lots of time to scrap!

Thanks for visiting!!

GoGo 10

The photo I have used for this layout is from the GoGo 10 retreat that Sharon and I attended....the arrow tells where I am!!

Plenty of time to get scrapping as the challenge doesn't close until 8th November!

By the Sea

This layout of Sharon and her friend Sue was just right for the challenge at Scrap the Girls and Lessology!


Scrap the Girls have a mood board.....

 
All the colours are in the background paper and it is definitely the beach...although not very warm!! 

Lessology challenge 52 - Beachfront Property is to be inspired by elements of the beach.  My upcycled item was a pizza box stripped back to the corrugated base.

Both challenges close at the end of the month so lots of time still to get scrapping!!

Time Flies...

Love this photo of the children's shoes...ready for starting a new year at school. These are the photos we don't always remember to take even though it happens every year!!!
So this layout was really suitable for the 'Time' challenge at Pixels and Paper.


I loved the clock with wings which came from Creative Embellishments.

The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time (!!) to enter!!!

EEK!

I love this photo of Sharon which was taken at Halloween 2013 when we went to Barleylands for their Scary night!!!  Sharon doesn't like reptiles very much but as all the children held a snake she had to be brave!!!!!!!!!  But I think the face says it all!!  LOL


This layout I am entering in the Colour challenge at ScrapMuch?

 

They used the colour board from Design Seeds and I think I used them all!!
The challenge closes 29th Ocober so lots of time to scrap!!

I am also entering this layout in the challenge at Creative Embellishments which had a photo for inspiration and the twist is to add metal.  I added brads and went with the Halloween theme!

@ the Beach

I have just realised just how long since I have scrapped and joined in challenges....since May!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This is what happens when the sun shines and I sit in the garden! LOL
This layout is for the challenge at Another Freaking Challenge.....you had to finish in 1hour!! This is not usually me but these photos of Alex didn't seem to require much more so I found this easy!!!  I used 'busy' paper, giant ric rac and sprinked real shells around his feet!! The title was from The Cut Shoppe which I printed on clear self adhesive.


The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to 'speed' scrap!! LOL

Thanks for visiting!
