More layouts for November

This weeks recipe scrap by GDT Belinda was the perfect layout for these photos of Beau at Putt Putt Golf. In true Beau style he showed us how to get a hole in one!! It's really very easy when you walk right up to the hole and place the ball next to it.

This one was Belinda's GDT challenge and the criteria was to do a shaped layout (non 12x12), black and white photo and brackets. Wasn't I a chubby bubby!!!
thanks Belinda for the inspiration for both of these layouts.

More CC Layouts

This was for Belinda's GDT Challenge and the criteria was to use square photo with rounded corners, 3 flowers and something bright (which is Kaleah's dance costume)

Another fantastic recipe challenge by Renae. My first visit to Santa. Aren't I cute LOL

Nov CC Ch#1 - sketch

I just had to use some photos from the 70's for this sketch based on Renae's layout. And even found some old pp's that reminded me of the 70's.

The other criteria was to use the word "Groovy" in the title.
Photos are of me, Stew and Russell watching the hangliders at Long Reef Headland around 1976. It's a bit hard to see the dirt road going all the way up and no trees. It sure has changed over the years.

A Novel Approach to Scrapbooking (ANATS)

Novembers ANATS challenge is based on the Harry Potter series. You can find the full details here . There is a surprise pack of goodies up for grabs, so upload your layouts by 29/11 to the Forever Always Gallery and in the forum

The challenge involving 4 patterned papers in the limited colours was at first a bit daunting. 1 because I don't do layers of pp's generally and 2 because I didn't have 4 coordinating pp's. But once I took of my blinkers and used a black pp as the background the rest of the challenge was easy.

November Monthly Sketch

This is my take on this months sketch

For your chance to win $20 off your next order from Forever Always complete a layout based on this sketch and upload to the gallery by 29/11/2009

What Inspires You???

Pop on over to Forever Always and check out November newsletter to find out what inspires us in our scrapping.
For me my children and husband are my life, and I am constantly inspired by them to be a better mother, better lover, better wife, better friend and a better person. They are my whole world.

Being a working mum of three, who is heavily involved wth their school P & C, and sporting commitments, often leaves me with little time for scrapbooking. And when I am really time poor, or when the creative juices just aren't flowing, I love to use a sketch or recipe challenge to kick start the mojo.

"Getting Stronger Everyday" is a sketch by Becky Fleck's Page Maps.

"Scream and Shout" was a recipe scrap by Amie that I didn't get a chance to do on the night and I love how this one turned out - thanks Amie.

"Mischief and Adventure"
This one was inspired by Beau's pyjamas where I have used both the title and layout design to complete this layout. And it sums up Beau perfectly - "Mischief and Adventure". He is all boy.

A couple of layouts

Just a few layouts I have done lately.

This one I did for the retreat recipe scrap using the Bella "Sarah Jane" range of pp's and embellishments. A rare photo of Scott and I taken at mum's before we went to Demo and Clare's wedding.

This one was for GDT Kylie B's challenge of scrapping a "first". Regan had been wanting to go fishing for months. So while we were away we went a few times. Sadly he didn't catch anything, and after casting the line onto the bridge a few times he did even master the art of getting it in the water!! he did have lots of fun and is keen to go again soon.
