Spring Fever

Join us for some great  challenges

Belated Scrapbookingtop50 CC Challenges

I would like to share some of the layouts I created, but haven't uploaded until now. I also used one of my handmade flowers on this.
This is one I did was a really big challenge for me, trying not to fill the "White Space", love the pic of my great nephew, it was his first christmas, he was more interested playing with a  bauble, he had taken from the tree.

 A simple layout, but I really love the way my niece has her face upturned towards the sun, a great shot of her captured by her Mum
Another Layout using Prima & some of my Handmade Satin Flowers, and a butterfly I made, I also love using doilies & lace on my layouts

The embellishments I have used were from a "Pink" swap we had over at Scrapbookingtop50, the pink flower fan is what I made for the swap
This one is of my beautiful new great nephew  Marlon, he is just so cute. I used a giraffe from a swap, & one of my handmade lollipop flower.
My all time favourite colour combo,Black, Red & White,  whenever I use these colours,  my layouts seem to come together quickly, I also love using circles. The clusters of red flowers are some of my handmade satin flowers, I also made the butterfly

Mauve is such a pretty colour, but I always find it really hard to use, but I thought it suited the photos
I also used some handmade flowers on this layout as well as the floral cluster down the right hand side
 The next layout we had to use stickers.
This challenge was to do a "Grunge"layout, I made the flower from newspaper, this is about as grungy as I could get, I really like the color I used on this
Another Halloween layout of my great nephew, dressed as his favourite character "Woody" from Toy Story

I finally found my mojo, after it had disappeared for a few months, so I decided to attempt one of the challenges over at Scrapbookingtop50 for the August CC. "Are You Game". The challenge I did was Sue's "Scrap Bingo" Challenge 2,  we had to pick out which lines we would like to use in a LO
Here's the Bingo Card:-
I chose top row stitching, 2nd row number in title, at least 5 flowers, (which I used some of my handmade water distressed flowers) & fussy cutting, which I cut some flowers out, I also cut up some doilies & used, I love the look of these on my layouts
Here is my LO:-
