Love is in the Air!

Well it is on this layout. February is the month of love, so why not celebrate the ones you love the most.
I did this layout from a challenge set at Enchanted Scrapbooks to 'split' a photo. The one of the godparents holding the kids has been split, and I have put the one of DH and I in the middle.

My friend Tiff has gone mad...MEGA GIVEAWAY!

Last minute Challenges

Because February is the short month, I haven'tfelt like I have had much to time do layouts for challenges around the traps after my DT and CT work. But today I have managed to do a couple that I can share with you.

This layout is using the sketch for Feb at Mystical Scrapbooks.
Such a cute sketch with the heart!

And this is my take on the mid-Feb sketch at STUCK?! sketches.

Hope you have a great weekend planned, and hope you get some of those last minute entries in!

Decided to join in the Cyber crop at Scrap Therapy this weekend. I did the following layout inspired by the Anne Geddes picture they had...Max is our new baby!

And this one is my take on the sketch they provided
You were also encouraged to crack open the glimmermist! Which I was most happy to oblige

And this is for my sister's sketch (Susan Longman) at 3 Angel Scrapping

Havent had a lot of MOJO lately, but hoping to get a few more things done before the end of the month!

Playing with Paint

Not a HUGE fan of paint usually. I find it messy and frustrating, and just plain tooo long to dry! saying that, I love the effect you can get from it. Enchanted Scrapbooking Cyber crop this past weekend had a few challenges involving paint, so I figured I give it a go!

Here is what I created!

Another few little shares

This is another layout I did using the DT kit from Anna's Craft Cupboard and the paper range 'Skys the limit' from My Little Shoebox. I tried a different inking technique using circular mesh as a mask...looks quite cool actually

This layout is for Enchanted Scrapbooking and their 'We're Back' challenges. Love this colour combination and love these pictures of my family making Sushi!
