Scrapbook layout – Scrappy squad eats pizza

Hello friends!

I attended to Scrap Cafe retreat at the weekend and I had a great time! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to stay overnight in the hotel, which means my scrappy time was slightly reduced. But I still managed 9 layouts, which I am quite happy about (my personal target was 10, but I lost my mojo at the end).

This layout here is one of the last ones I made and one of my most favourite. On Saturday night my scrappy friends Claire and Zoe, and I had a takeaway pizza for dinner. I took the photo and went home and posted it on facebook. Zoe saw it and said “you need to print this and scrap it for the social media challenge!”. So what I did was print three copies, one for each one of us, and all three of us scrapped the same photo! The results were so different too!

Here is my take:

And this is the magic of retreats, this layout was put together thanks to the generosity of my friends! Someone lent me the spatula to apply the paste, somebody else lent me the Heidi Shine Sprays, and someone else gave me the Emoji Love card and lent me the smiley face stamp. Team work!!

Scrapbook layout – My rock

Hello friends!

Today’s layout is a “just because” layout. All the pages I’ve made recently were for a specific challenge, so it was nice to create just because for once! I played with several ideas in my head, but in the end I settled with this layout, which was loosely inspired by this lovely page by Pol Prince.

And here it is!

Apologies for the rubbish coloration on the photo. The natural light let me down! I have taken another photo but I am not sure if this one is any better! The colours are truer to the original, but the image isn’t sharp!

Scrapbook layout – Amigos de COU

Hi all!

Today’s layout has been made for the extra special “All 13 letters” ABC challenge on For the Love of Pretty Paper. We are on week 13 of our ABC challenge, and as an extra we have asked people to include all the elements that we have drawn so far:

Buttons, red, tags, food, material, journey, diagonal, wood, gold, numbers, languages, squares & kraft.

And here is my layout:

The less obvious items are:

Wood – there’s a wood button on the bottom right corner.
Gold – there’s gold in the “COU” alphas, in the twine in the tag and two little gold enamel shapes.
Material – the twine in the tag
Diagonal – two squares have been folded on their diagonal
Journey – the journalling describes part of my life journey

I used the Rough & Tumble collection again, as it was still on my desk from having used it on my “You Shine” layout just the other day. I thought the colours were great with this photo too!

There is a little red button under the photo in the layout above that I was not happy at all with, so after taking that photo I actually removed the button. Unfortunately, the paper underneath reaped a bit, so I added some word stickers.
