RES/ Stuck!?Sketches April Sketch: PLAY

Stuck!?Sketches April Challenge/ RES April Sketch Challenge. This month I have added to my BOM, after I found an old school photo of me in Grade 2. I have so few pictures of me at this age it was a real treasure.

Soul Scrappers - THC 48 - The Couch

Over at Soul Scrappers the Theme challenge for the month is "Weddings". This is an easy one for me, as I have just photographed my best friends wedding and have oodles of photographs to scrap. I've chosen this one, of the whole family on the couch - it's a personal one as I used 'The couch' as a last minute prop, having discovered it in the morning of the wedding, and having it delivered to the garden. In hindsight it was a real risk, that paid off as I love the atmnosphere that it created. I've used the Kaiser "Sweet Nothings' collection, which matched the colors of the couch so well.

Soul Scrappers WC9 - Create

Word Challenge 9 - invites you to use the word 'CREATE' to make a layout. This photos is one that was taken of me, during a month long challenge I set myself to take a photo of me every day for a month.

Scrapbook Boutique - April 2012 "Today"

Over at Scrapbook Boutique the theme is very pretty - pink, green and white. While you know I am not a girly girl (and I don't do much pink) these colors were perfect for a layout about my best friends wedding, held just a fortnight ago. She looked so beautiful I can just cry...

Screen2Scrap (April 2012)- Ready to marry Prince Charming

I've just photographed my best friends wedding - not that I am a professional photographer, just a good friend who was trusted with her special day.
This would have to be one my favorite photos from the day and it fits in nicely with S2S's April Challenge. The inspiration is to come from the movie poster "Ever After' with additional criteria to include a) a cinderella story, b) some bling (on the butterflies) and c) journalling

Soul Scrappers - Quote Challenge 9 - Life is Too Short

Today's layout is for a quote challenge over at Soul Scappers. The inspiration was the Dr. Zeuss quote "life it too short", and again I've used a golden oldie of a photo, of Leigh at age 3 1/2. The papers are from the new Echo Park mini packs.

SOUL SCRAPPERS - SC50 - Men in Black

Another Soul Scrappers Challenge - this time the monthly sketch challenge. The photos were from my best friend's wedding, and my 2 boys pretending to be her security guards. It was such a relaxed and fun wedding...

SOUL SCRAPPERS - SSQ12 - "Highway 66"

SSQ12 is a wonderful challenge on the Soul Scrappers site. You get sent an envelope of goodies (content unknown until you open it) and have to make a layout (or OTP) using ALL of the goodies. The theme this time was TRAVEL and this is my first time I've been part of this...

My layout "Hightway66" was from when we were in America last year, travelling down Highway 66....
