Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Feb Challenge

Hello again!

And here we are again - the middle of the month and yes you guessed it - Let's Get Sketchy mid-month challenge is up on their blog. Here is the sketch for 15 Feb 2018:
And here is my take on the sketch:
Photo booths tend to be the in thing at parties today - so of course I couldnt resist scrapping these lovely photos of the girls having some fun with some of the props for the photos. Think they are super cool!

I have used paper from the Freckled Fawn range. I think I have had this in my stash for a wee while now, and it is actually part of a Christmas Range (hehehe!).

Pop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog and have a look at the wonderful interpretations of the sketch by the rest of design team. I love how one sketch can be produce so many different layouts!

Hope to see your layout up on the blog!

Bye for now,
M

Let's Get Sketchy - 1 February Reveal

Hello again

And me again - this time with the 1 February sketch reveal for Let's Get Sketchy! Gosh was January a fantastic month at LGS - there were so many amazing entries - it was wonderful to see. I love how everyone interprets the sketches and the layouts created - wow! Well without further ado - here is the sketch for 1 Feb:


And here is my take on the sketch featuring my gorgeous nieces:

These are my two beautiful nieces, whom I haven't seen for a few years being that we live 11000km away. They are much older now 15 and 11 now. 

Well I look forward to seeing your take on the sketch .....

White with 1 - February reveal

Hello all

Not sure what happened to January - it went so fast, and suddenly it is February - phew!
Really does seem to get faster as one ages, or is it better to say that time flies when you are having fun? I think  I prefer the latter!

Of course with the new month, means a new challenge over at White ... with 1 ... and this month is the gorgeous SIZZLING PINK 



Pretty, pretty!

And if that colour is not enough to tempt you, White with 1 has also included a sketch

The sketch is of course entirely optional!

So here is my layout for the month using the sketch:

This colour was so perfect for my daughters last year at school formal ball - matched perfectly. And so did her finger nails and I just love this photo.

I have sprayed some pink ink in the background, and used some of my project life cards for the background. There is also some chippie in there which I have coloured with pink ink. 

I just love what the rest of the team have put together too - pop on over to the White .. with 1 blog and have a look. 
I look forward to seeing your amazing creations up on the blog this month ...

Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Jan sketch reveal

Well we are half way through January - is it just me, but does each year just seem to go faster and faster?
As it is the 15th of the month - it is Let's Get Sketchy reveal for the next sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch using the gorgeous Pion range - Theodore and Bella:
I just love this range -  and my precious daughter who was about 13/14 months old in these pictures - and who now turns 22 this year! Can't believe they were ever so little. I will always remember people telling me to enjoy the moments with my kids as littlies because they grow up so quickly - and boy there is nothing truer said. In a blink of an eye they are young adults ready to leave the house ad spread their wings.

I certainly hope to see your layouts up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog - click here and all the details on how to enter are on the blog (and have a look at the gorgeous layouts created by the rest of the design team).

See you soon!

Let's Get Sketchy - Jan 2018

Happy New Year - hope your year ahead is a good one!

1 January - and Let's Get Sketchy has a lovely new sketch for the 1st of the month reveal:

I went with a masculine layout, I laid out the papers as per the sketch, and used a dusty attic chipboard zip to make it look like I was pulling the paper open with the zip. I used a stencil and ink to make the splash and stain marks.
Pop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy blog and have a look at the rest of the design team and their gorgeous interpretation of the sketch. - they are also a new design team for 2018.

I would love to see your interpretation of the sketch up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog ....

White ... with 1 - Jan 2018

Happy New Year to you all - may 2018 be a very good year for you all!

So being the 1st of the month - it means a new reveal and challenge for White ... with 1. A great colour this month - BAYOU BLUE. And to go along with this lovely colour - White with 1 have provided a mood board to get the creativity going (The mood board is of course optional):


Isn't this a great mood board - I love the colours and the textures. And especially the denim and the textures from the plant pots. This then inspired the following layout for White with 1 for January 2018:

I was very lucky to have the striped paper in my stash - perfect for this month's challenge. I then used other papers also with the denim effects. I then layered different collectables from Kaisercraft along side the photos. This is my gorgeous niece and I thought it quite appropriate that she was wearing a denim jacket - perfect with the papers.

White with 1 has a new design team for 2018 - pop over to the blog and have a look at the new team's inspiration and beautiful layouts that have been displayed. 

I look forward to seeing everyone's layouts created for this month's challenge.

Let's Get Sketchy - 15 Dec sketch reveal

Hi there!

While I am sitting in my lounge typing this up, Christmas carols are playing in the background (yes, hubby is feeling quite festive) - hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner ... and then the year is over. SO without further ado ... the last challenge for 2017 at Let's Get Sketchy:

Loved working with this sketch - and I decided to turn it anti-clockwise and work with it like that - and here is my take on the sketch:

As you can see we go back to 2004 - when my daughter was all of 8 years old ... this is one of my favourite photos with my own mom and my daughter. I used a chipboard frame and covered this with paper. The flowers are from 49 Market - alas the paper I have had for a while and cannot recall the name of the range.

Would love to see your take on the sketch - and pop it up over on the Let's Get Sketchy blog.

Have a great Christmas and best wishes for the New Year. I will be back for 1 January - a new year and a new sketch for Let's Get Sketchy......

Till then ...

Michelle -----
