Scrapping 4 fun – Nochebuena lobster

Hello friends!

This is my last layout as DT member for Scrapping 4 fun challenges… 🙁 It’s been a great quarter, however, I no longer have the time I used to have to scrapping, and I don’t want it to become a chore, so I decided to not reapply for another term. Maybe in the near future I will get time and I can become part of the team again!

My last challenge as DT member is a Christmas layout! It is December already and that means Christmas!

I have scrapped a photo from last year’s Christmas Eve, when we had lobster for dinner and the twins wouldn’t stop playing with the claws!

Stuck? Sketches – Brighton 2003

Hello everyone!

My latest layout for Stuck?! Sketches is here! And I had so much fun creating it! I mixed papers from Felicity Jane with frames from Simple Stories and thickers from Pink Paislee Fancy Free, and I love how they came up together!

Here is my layout:

Scrapbook layout – No regrets

Hi all!

This is another layout that I made for the retreat last weekend. I entered it on a challenge that was about regrets, so I decided to go on a little tangent and capture the story of how I got my last job. It is a very personal story, however I didn’t have a problem with other people reading about it and that’s why I left the journalling showing. My layout is heavily inspired by this one I found on Pinterest.

And here it is!

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!!
