Li'l red wagon

 I've used a library pocket featuring an old aeroplane on this male birthday card.

It could be used for putting a gift card in or a secret note from a grandchild etc. 
I'm entering it at Li'l red wagon.

Creations in pink.

 Today I have made a card for Creations in Pink. Creations in Pink.

A new blog challenge for me.  I have used a butterfly from my Counterfeit kit plus 3 lace daisies from my sister's wedding dress. (Gone long ago but we kept the lace)


It is a tall thin card and could be a birthday or congratulations type card.

Challenge #1 CKC

 Create a layout featuring you enjoying another hobby than scrapbooking.


I'm scrapbooking my Vanuatu photos this month, so decided to look at MELE WATERFALL.
We climbed to the top through the tropical jungle to reach this waterfall (above)
It took over an hour !!! 
Below the waterfall is a pool in the rocks.


It was beautiful and so refreshing after that climb.

My second hobby is of course photography. I have a box of around 200 photos from a 7 day holiday in Vanuatu.

I have made this layout and as you can see I'm in the photo


I used flamingo paper (found after the introduction of my kit). I added strips to match the pink and in keeping with the tropical paper. I cut a circle for my title to stand out and used a co-ordinating journal card. 
My photos were taken using panorama setting so I could get the vertical extent of the waterfall.

Sketches in Thyme.


 This was the first sketch for June at Sketches in Thyme


While still working on 8x8 I managed this layout. I'm so pleased to use some punched flowers that I make from scraps. 

More 8x8 layouts

 Here's some more of my 8x8 layouts. I'm cracking through them this month to fill the album.


This first one is for the summer challenge at The Scraproom. 

Summer-sandpiper, uniball pen, mini alphas, mollusc, edging, ribbon.



This one was just for myself, but I managed to match the starfish sticker to the table decoration.

Here are 4 more.

First 5 8x8 layouts CKC

 As stated in the kit reveal I'm working on an 8x8 album this month. 

Here's the pages I have done so far. They come together quickly.







I've used some of the new flairs I got from Mystical scrapbooking.
In the last one I made a jar of shells using the stickers in my kit.
