For February 2015 Sketch Challenge.
I chose the football pics to go with the circles in the sketch and added other circle embellishments. (I think this is the first time I’ve added stitching to a layout too!)
Using: Kaisercraft card stock, stamps, clear dots and pearls; Stampin’ Up paper; Inque Boutique stamp; Stamp It embossing powder; Thickers alphas; Crate Paper stickers; Micador water soluble pencils; papers, ribbons and cotton from my stash.

For the 123 Challenge Blog January 2015 Challenge.
We love catching up with our friends in Albany during the holidays. The kids always have a great time together. This wall at the newly renovated cinemas made an irresistible background for a photo.

For the Sassy Scrappers January 2015 Moodboard Challenge.
My friend Vicki and I did the Color Run in Perth last year. It was wet and messy and we had an absolute ball! We’ve been friends since our kids were babies but this was the first time we have gone away together for the weekend! We had a fabulous time.
I’m happy with how this layout came together. The colours match the photos really well. I stepped out of my very planned style and just plonked embellishments around. As a result my 10 year old son reckoned this is one of the best pages I have done 😉
Using: American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook and Kaisercraft papers and card stock and co-ordinating stickers; Kaisercraft bling and Color Box inks.
For the Stuck?! Sketches January 1 Challenge.
For this Christmas layout I went with the traditional red and green and used some bits and pieces that have been in my stash for a long time!
Using: Bazill card stock; American Crafts Christmas papers; Francheville, Glam Creations and Portacraft embellishments; Fiskars punch; Stampin’ Up inks; Amy Tangerine stamp; Tattered Angels Silver Glimmer Mist; Kaisercraft and American Crafts rubons.
UPDATE: I was randomly chosen as a winner of a $30 Big Picture Classes voucher!
For the Scrap the Boys January 2015 mood board challenge:
Sometimes mums just have to close their eyes and hope for the best do daring things like riding their scooter at the Skate Park!
Using: Kaisercraft card stock and rubon, Cherry Arte Tropics and Boy Story papers, Bella Fusion Paperz, Grant photo frame, mirror card from stash, Cuttlebug diamond plate embossing folder.
For the December 2014 Scrappit challenge: create a Christmas layout without using traditional Christmas colours.
It took a lot of attempts to get this photo of both of us smiling and looking at the camera!
