Rainy Day Scrapping

Pupil free day + rain + 3 bored children would normally mean no time for me to scrap. But surprisingly with the help of a couple of DVD's the kids gave me some peace and quiet.
First up was Scrap the Girls October Challenge. The criteria was to use the word "love" and distressing.
Kaleah is at her happiest when she is creating and it doesn't matter where she is or what materials she uses. Here on the beach at Brooms Head she has created "Pebbles" using rocks, sticks and seaweed, along with writing out where we were holidaying.

Then Out of The Hat. Criteria was to use complimentary colour scheme, felt and paper tearing. I have gone with blue and orange, and used the bubble blowing technique to create the background.

Thanks for looking, and thanks for the lovely comments. Happy scrapping!!

Weekend Scrapping

Whilst the cars went round and round at Bathurst, the thunder rumbled along in the distance and the rain couldn't decide whether to fall or not, I managed to make a start on this months challenges around blog land.
First up - White With 1 - Criteria was white with black and paint / mists.
Regan enjoyed his early morning surfs at Brooms Head. He loved that he could just go for surf whenever he wanted whilst we were away. Surfing 4 or 5 times a day takes it's toll and makes for a very tired boy at the end of the day. Early to bed ready to start the next day again at sunrise.

Next was Challenge Heaven - Ebony and Ivory Challenge - Criteria Black or White with Pink and Purple plus lace.

And lastly (and not really happy with this layout) Kraft it Up. The criteria was to use Kraft background with 1 of the following styles - minimilist / monochromatic colour scheme or Romantic, Shabby Chic, Vintage. One would have thought that I would be comfortable with the minimilistic style considering most of my layouts are very basic, but even for me this layout is plain (even after I added the glimmer mist over the tree stencil)
