Last layouts for the month

here is my final 2 layouts for the month.

This one is for "BLACK WITH 2". There criteria this month was black, aua and yellow, with hand cut embellishments and flourishes. Here is my take, with a gorgeous photo of my sister Susan and Angus on his Birthday!

This is a layout I did for "What's Ad About", but I think I entered it too late...OH WELL!

Hope you all have a great week.
I can share more layouts with you from DT stuff. So keep an eye out!

A swap and a few....just a few!

I hosted this Swap at Artistic Document for Cards and Tickets...
I am so glad I hosted it as I got to see the packs before anyone else.
Here is a sample of the packs that I sent out to the girls today!

Artistic Document are having their August Cybercrop, and the theme is Recycle, Re-use, and Reduce. We were challenged to take an old layout and make a new one with it.

Here is what I came up with and just love how it turned out
Close up
And this is the original Layout...OMG..I am a little embarrassed to show it, but it was over 4 years ago and it is nice to see how far we have come (or so I will keep telling myself)
This is an OTP I did using a Prima Package to create a magnetic notepad.
Love how this turned out too, going to be giving it to my Day Carer
This layout was made using 4 household/non scrapping items
-Crochet doily, twine, book paged, and cardboard

Over at Bon's Scraps, I did this layout for the 'Write Now' challenge. We had to document a 'first'. So I decided to journal about Charlie's first time on a farm and first encounter with a cow!

This Layout is my take on the Inspiration Monthly Challenge

I Entered Sweeties Sketches for the first time this month.
Here is my take on their sketch

This is what I did with the RoadMaps sketch and combined with the 'Out of the Hat' criteria of 3x circles, bling on a boy layout and staples...Love how it turned out

So I have been busy as usual..hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, and I shall be sharing the news soon about my latest give-away!

LOTS of layouts....overload overload!

Firstly, I apologies for all the Layouts...NO I don't, that's what you come to see RIGHT???

Okay enough of that...

Scrapbook Savvy this month have the Cutest Sketch
and I just had to scrap this cute picture of our new baby Barkley!!!

Over at The Scrapbooks Establishment, I create this card for the CC
based on the Seasonal Colours of Autumn

And this layout is for the CC there too and the criteria was to have 3 colours, 3 photos and journalling around the edge of the layout. (photos of Angus Curtesy of Kayla Renee)

These next 2 layouts are Enchanted Scrapbooking

So I created this one for Tiff's challenge for the CC :
to use a Rainbow, and another element (out of a list) and I chose flowers...shock horror I know!

Close up of my bow (which I am proud of, and the layered flower)

This layout is for the Monthly Inspiration Challenge.
I loved the bright blue background in the inspiration picture so went for that
Close up

This is a Layout for MYSTICAL Scrapbooks.
It is Cookie's Technique Challenge this month to punch distress!

So thanks for looking at my creations. I will be having a blog give-away soon so stay tuned!
