Scrapping Out LOUD! Blog Hop....

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Well, if you are visiting as part of the SOL Blog Hop, you will have already seen some amazing pages, so I won't delay in reveal my take on this week's challenge, 'The Bigger The Better'


So they wanted us to use oversized embelishments and alphas on a page...so how could I resist making this large cute tortoise to match the ones on the backing paper!

Now you only have one more blog to hop on over to, before returning to Scrapping Out LOUD! so click HERE to check out Yvonnes fab LO!

And if you have joined us half way through and want to see the other DT's pages, this is where you need to visit...

Quick update!

I did say I would be blogging more regularly....whoops!!!

So here is a few pages to update you on what I have been up to....

This page was made after I finally made my daughter a dress. I have never sewn a thing in my life before this, so I was happy, and so was she!






I used scraps of the dress material on the page, and the stripey paper was the inspiration for the colour scheme. It was an excuse to do some hand stitching on the page, and you will see on my next pages that I am now quite addicted to the sewing machine!

Here is a page I scrapped about Oliver's love of a ball, which is definitely something he must get from daddy!



Did I forget to rotate these?!




I cut out circles from an overlay, and used different coloured brads to hold them in place. I loved this backing card and couldn't find quite the right photo to use on it...until now!

And finally another random page I have done recently was All About Me, which was how it felt when we went out to celebrate my birthday recently *blush*!!

SOLl update!

Oh dear! With all thats been going on, I totally forgot to show you all my latest page for the Scrapping Out Loud DT!
Last Tuesday, the challenge was to use some sort of Time related piece on a scrapbook page.
I chose to make this LO about my grandparents, using a very old picture from when they were first together.



There is just still time to take part in this challenge, and join us next Tuesday for a Blog Hop! It will be great fun, and a chance to discover the other DT members Blogs and work!
There is loads more pages I am dying to show you but these have to be saved for DT reveals....so keep an eye out for those here in the next few weeks X

SOL Get Naked Challenge...

Such a great challenge title this one is! The challenge over at Scrapping Out Loud this week is to leave your chipboard totally bare. Ok, so I got caught by habit and started inking the edges of my butterfly, but I did remember to leave the flower naked!


As you can see from my sidebar, this LO is one of my faves so far! And check out the other DT's pages for some fab inspiration....

Scrapping Out Loud Scene Challenge.

This week, Scrapping out Loud set a challenge which I found really hard. As part of the DT, I am supposed to make designing a fab LO to the criteria look easy...ha!

They asked us all to make a page, with a scene, PLUS at least two pockets for journaling or extra photos. I thought I would finally scrap this gorgeous photo I took of my daughter last year, and an autumn, woodland scene would fit perfectly. I also decided to pop the journaling behind the photo so that the scene was not interupted.

I was quite pleased with the result for a first go at this sort of page, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT come up with. Check it out at Scrapping Out Loud XX

Fresh New Look!

Hi All!

This may have confused some of you as it did me, but this blog is now taking over from 'Scrapprentice'.

Now don't bother googling it, you won't find it! I deleted it! Purely by accident, I assure you, but nevertheless, it is gone for good.

Yes, I am gutted, but hopefully it won't take too long for this new blog address to get back around to all my faithful previous followers!

I shall soon start posting my recent works, but for now I am off to e-mail any of you that I can find to let you know the bad, and good news!
