Domesticated ! that is the challenge for September at Scrap the Boys.
I didn't have any photos to fit the challenge so my daughter gave the vacuum to her 3 year old son, and he pretended to vacuum the floor, anything for a photo!

Stuck- August

Here is the sketch for "Stuck" for this month, I usually stick to sketches closely for challenges, but I have broken out of my usual and made a mixed media page using photos of my grandson, I love it when babies start to walk and they have chubby bandy little legs, and once they can walk they never stay still!

just for fun

   A bit of mixed media fun with this page, nice and bright to match the photo of my eldest daughter in her late teens/early 20's [bad scrapbooker, not knowing the date!] LOL!

Show us your stuff august.

This months challenge at Show us your stuff, not a sketch, but a shape challenge, shapes to include are, a square, a rectangle a bunting a circle a banner a splash of pant or ink and a handmade item!
I have everything included on my page, my handmade item is the bunting made by me! the photo is of my beautiful granddaughter as a baby.

123 challenge- august

 Here is the mood board for this months challenge at 123 challenge blog.

This photo is rather special, this is the first " kangaroo cuddle" my daughter got to have with her 1st baby, who was born a little early and with respiratory difficulties was airlifted to Sydney, her poor little face looks rather bruised and she still has the remains of tape stuck on her face where tubes etc where held in place on her face, but a beautiful picture all the same.

sassy scrapper

August Moodboard Challenge Here is the mood board for Sassy scrapper august challenge.
Here is my take on the mood board, a picture of my granddaughter pointing to her 1st wobbly tooth at the age of 5.  I had fun with some mixed media to add the pretty mood board colours to my page, I then added bits and pieces from my stash that matched, I wanted to do some stamping but my black ink had dried up, so I found some old rub ons instead!

mood board and sketch 
I turned the sketch around to suit the photo of my gorgeous 5 year old  granddaughter.

Scrap the girls

This is the mood board for this months challenge at Scrap the girls.
I used a photo of my middle daughter wearing her favourite colour purple, the ideal photo for this page, I had fun with some mixed media to incorporate the colours of the mood board.

Scrap the Girls

 For this months challenge at "scrap the Girls"  paint and texture paste are the requirements.

I took a dark wood grain paper and gessoed over it to lighten it then I used a wood grain stencil and spread texture paste over that, then I painted with water paints blocks of colour, not very noticeable in the photo, then splattered some more paint over the top, then covered up most of it with paper and embellishments, my photo is 5 years old of my youngest daughter hugging her niece.

Off the rails Scrapbooking

This month's challenge for Off the rails scrapbooking is a mood board.
Here is my take on it!                                                                     
 I used a picture of my husband and myself taken just before our eldest daughters wedding, the photographer told us to look at each other "like we still loved each other"! so of course that made us smile at each other, resulting in a natural photo instead of a pose!

I had the right coloured papers in my stash, but achieving the glittery  blue was a bit more difficult. I put ink on the pieces of chipboard then used embossing ink then I sprinkled on what I thought was embossing glitter then using the heat gun to set it, but I had used ordinary glitter and it blew everywhere, realizing my mistake and a few choice words later I put glue on the chipboard then glitter and let it dry giving me some pretty glittery pieces to use!

scrap page for fun!

    I hadn't done any scrapbooking for ages, so I thought a mixed media page would get me back into the swing of things and it did! the subject is one of my daughters showing off her new "hair do!"

show us your stuff July

    This is the mood board for Show us your stuff for July.

Here is my take on the mood board, I went through my stash and found what I could in similar colours, a photo taken of my grandson last year is the subject, not exactly a winter photo, but the colours match anyway! for my handmade items I cut out with my silouette machine the words that say "they saw" and the oval around the other cluster on the right.

Off the rails scrapbooking

Using fabric from the stash in the cupboard is the challenge from off the rails scrapbooking,

well my fabric came from a box in my bedroom, a box full of UFO's { unfinished fabric objects} I found a cute little patch work square I had made a few years ago,  that I have put it to good use by making a scrapbook page out of it, there is also some muslin and calico in there as well and a little piece of ribbon.
