Feeling blue...

Well not exactly, but I've been scrapping blue a bit lately!

First up, for this week's Design Dollies Colour Challenge (using the colour combo of mint green, navy blue, and ivory) I added another page to my cocktail recipe mini-album:

(Thanks Melissa for the papers - I have no idea what these ones are, but the colours were just perfect and there was just enough to cover the chipboard.)

I'm entering this one at:
# My Partner in Crafting Crime ~ Challenge 9 ~ Food & drink
# Really Reasonable Ribbon ~ Challenge #6 ~ Aloha
I used navy blue trim
# Fab'n'Funky ~ Challenge #36 ~ Flower Power
I used bling flowers, and I fussy-cut a flower from the patterned paper.

The next layout was completed for the Scrap Boutique cybercrop challenge on the weekend. Lauren set a fun 'Choose your own scrappy adventure' quiz challenge. My criteria were: Use a cardstock base, two different patterned papers (Kaisercraft and Basic Grey), a mixed alpha title, flowers, and five buttons. The result is an 8x8 layout for our family daytrip album - yet another Duyfken layout:

This was also the first time I've made the little concertina flowers - I think I need to practise a bit more, and maybe next time use a thinner paper, but I'm still reasonably pleased with my first attempt.


  1. Your cocktail recipe album is such a great idea! I love it!! Thanks so much for joining our Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge.

  2. I think you rocked the flowers, these guys from my perception are really difficult to get in a circle and you rocked it, wow using a lot of blue's lately, you may be craving for a visit from Nate again. lol. I love the gorgeous papers, they the top one was given to me also so I am not sure what brand, Daisy D's comes to mind though, I love the idea of your coctail recipe book, what a great idea. Love the doodling on the 2nd layout and is this liquid paper or white pen in the edge of the layout, I love it. Melxx ps. Hope you are all well, say hi to Jazi for Nate and I.
