30 March 2014


I enjoyed my stint as the March guest designer at Lasting Memories Scrapbooking Challenges, and I am thrilled say I have been invited to become a member of the design team!  This is so perfect for me, because my paper crafting has always been about layouts first.  I want to scrap my memories, and have some fun along the way.

Of course I've been so focussed on scrapping up a storm that I forgot were five Sundays this month, so I scrambled to get this one done:

As it turns out, this is the layout I had most fun with all month!  The new theme at Lasting Memories is Joke's on You - with a focus on laughter and silly moments.  The photo is a selfie that my daughter took at a recent birthday party, and it made me laugh to find it on my camera!

I used the sketch from Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - it made the page come together so easily for me.

I also included lots of triangles in the banner for Scrap Our Stash Birthday Challenge #11.

Basic Grey Sublime - Cinnamon patterned paper
Lime Tree Creations crocheted doilies
Green Tara 7cm petals - Orange
American Crafts Thickers - Gift Box alphabets
Fancy Pants Dancing Girl - She Can Dance patterned paper
Kaisercraft Flutterby - Spring Azure patterned paper

27/04/2014 Edit to add: My layout was chosen as a FAVE at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.

24/07/2014 Edit to add:  I'm linking up my layout at Paper Issues for the Say Cheese link party.  This is one of my favourite layouts this year, and one of the first 'selfies' of my daughter that I swiped to scrap!  I love the blurry, cut off photograph, and the fun, silly moment it captured. Perfect for the theme, I think.
