Above is my last minute entry for the Scrapfriends October sketch challenge, shown above.. I have been meaning to try this one all month but just struggled with finding the right photos.

Scrap the boys October challenge - Outdoor fun

This layout is my attempt at the Scrap the boys October challenge. The requirements are to use the traditional boy colours - blue and green. It took me a long time to get started, and choose a photo but this is the finished result. I chose a photo of my sons first ever time on skis in Falls creek, Victoria.

Life paper scrapbook September colour challenge - Away we go

This is my entry for the Life Paper Scrapbook September colour challenge - shown above. The colour scheme is one Im not used to working with but I took the opportunity to scrap these photos I have had laying around for some time, which show my first ever weekend away from my children, a snow trip to a friends 'shack' for my birthday. As the photos weren't very exciting in themselves it was good to give them some meaning on a double page layout explaining the trip.

White with one October challenge - Uniquely you

Its been a long time since I scrapped last! After moving back home (interstate) Im finally getting settled and back into it again.... I decided to enter my first challenge in months - White with one. This months challenge is to use only white with "watermelon" - and a little black is allowed. After going through both mine and my friends stash for watermelon coloured papers this is what I came up with! I used a picture of my daughter ice skating as it was one of very few that went with the colour scheme and the title (by A2Z scraplets).
