Boutique challenges

I had a very rare weekend at home this week, and spent some quiet time with my daughter. I also got a little bit of scrapping done. My photo shortage is keeping my mojo levels way down, but I've focussed on a few challenges to keep me scrapping.

Both of these are for Scrap Boutique September challenges.

The layout is for Manon's Stash Stomper, based on her sketch and using lots of chipboard:

** I'd love some hints on how to photograph layouts with transparency or lace cardstock backgrounds ** I can never seem to get a nice photograph. Photographing them flat loses the impact of the background, so I've been using an easel, but it never looks right either. Any suggestions??

The card is for Liz's card challenge, to make a male themed card, with at least three shapes, in bright bold colours:


  1. Love the one with the transparency! Not sure how to help with the photography dilemna, it looks pretty good on the easel.

  2. Hi Karen hang it on the clothes line and photograph it.Take care Kerryxx ps great layout.

  3. Gorgeous Karen! Love the papers you've used here!
