scrapping away...

This weekend, I actually managed to do some scrapbooking. I've been trying to catch up on the Got Sketch class I signed up for, and I'm half way there. Here's my take on Sketch No. 1. The tags hanging out the top are sitting in a pocket behind the photos and will one day have journaling on them or some more photos (when I get around to it - lol). These photos are from about 2 years ago when Eme was just a bubba - I forgot how gorgeous she was (and still is!). I have decided to use a bit of everything in my stash (its not going to get used otherwise) and I've also freed myself of the need to match my papers etc to my photos - I'm just using what makes me happy.

This one is my take on Sketch 4 - I have reversed the sketch to suit my photos. These were another lot of old photos that I've been waiting to scrap. This was such a fun day - it was raining outside so the kids decided that colouring under the dining table was a good idea. It kept them entertained for ages. We sure do miss Sabine and George now they are living in the US.

Next up, Sketch 2. Last Christmas, Katy bought Seth a disposable camera and he just went nuts taking photos. This sketch called for three 4x6 photos, but I've filled the space with 20 photos instead. I've used every photo Sethy-boy took that day regardless of their success. So much fun to record the way Seth sees the world.

Lastly, here's the layout I taught at Scrapbook HQ on Saturday. I really enjoyed teaching my first class there and the ladies went away with a double layout and coordinating card in 2 hours. Next month's class will be held on Sunday 27 July and is birthday inspired. Book in if you want to join the fun.


I've just received my copy of this month's For Keeps Creative Paper and I have a four page spread with "Bella on a Budget". I will post the layouts another time.
