Summer loving

This week my scrapping has been all about summer.

I'm joining in the first Kraft it Up! challenge of the year with this layout:

I'm also joining in over at Scrap the Girls for the first time ever, with this layout:

I really didn't like this when I finished it; it was too linear and boxy, too 'primary'... but the more I looked at it, the more it grew on me and I decided it really was about time I joined in at Scrap the Girls after procrastinating for so long!! I'm also pleased I've finally been able to use some of those American Craft 'Travel' papers and whittle away a bit more old stash.


  1. yay! well done on joining in at STG karen you have done a great job :)xo

  2. just LOVE both the pages and also all the fun sewing!!! Very cool:)

  3. Both beautiful LO's Karen. Love the splashes of mist and striking colour combo on your KIU LO!! Thanks so much for joining in this month :)

  4. I love both layouts, the stitching on the second just makes the layout pop and the photos match perfectly, and the 1st is just stunning with the spots of mist. gorgeous. Melxx

  5. Hi Karen, loving the kraft layout, looks so smart and neat and great. Jazi looks great in your second layout, love the colours and love the whole design, not surprised you can make these papers look good.

    Glad Jazi is happier now at the new school. Sabrina is fine this week whew, me on the other hand not so fine but getting there!

    Take care Karen!
