City crafter

Over at City crafter they want a hat.
I've chosen the obvious for this time of the year, Santa in his hat.

The Merry Christmas challenge wants anything Christmas so I entered it there as well.

Cardz4guyz plus others

At Cardz4guyz they have a snowman theme.

After some thought, I came up with this snowmen paper and matching snowflake trim.

I'm also entering it at the following

Challenge YOUrself



I've chosen a quote "You are you, this is truer than true, there is no one alive who is youer than you"

On my layout I used only part of that quote.

I used 2 tape measures, a flower I made myself from hessian, a button plus some stickers from a set I has with a matching journaling block.
Yes this is me...back in the late 1970s.
The back ground paper is October Afternoon and is shaped.

Scrap Soup

This layout is for Paper Issues Scrap Soup.



My photos are of a café/deli/restaurant we stopped in on the way to Sedona.

If you are ever out that way, go in there. They have a gorgeous garden at the back amidst the trees with a creek running nearby.

My 2 photos are of Indian Gardens café.
My 2 circles are cut from brown paper
My 3 colours are black,cream and brown.
My 3 embellishments are black washi tape, the "love" bingo card and 2 transparencies of the owl and basket.
I've hand written my journaling and the date.


Using a complicated sketch


This sketch from Sketch Savvy was quite complicated. In fact I had to print it off and shade areas as I added papers to the layout. It was morning puzzle for me to master.

I had 3 photos of ART DECO style from New York, New York at Las Vegas.
This style appeals to me, like many people.
Here's my layout.

As this isn't entered on a challenge, it would be nice if some of you lurkers out there commented.
I wonder sometimes who looks at my pages.

Mystical Scapbooks challenge #2

Mystical Scrapbooks

Las Vegas is a crazy place. People everywhere, noise, too much visual overload!
For this reason I chose a multi-coloured paper that screams bright.
My strip vertically features arrows and is also bright.
Instead of a tag peeking out behind the photos, I used a playing card.
I've also used a transparency as the "paper " on the right.
Additional to the sketch details I added a Jolie's Boutique sign for Las Vegas.

Mystical December challenge #1


Challenge 1 - Karen's Recipe Challenge

Pattern paper distressed , 12 embellishments , 2 word title and hand journaling 

I"m so happy with this layout as I used a tiki paper I've had in my stash for 14 years!!!!!

Enough excitement.
I tore quite often on this layout and folded back a couple of times ,holding with staples (distressing)

My 12 embellishments are the cactus and mountain goat (2) + Live laugh love(1)+ white dots(5) and words describing my statues (5) .
This makes a total of 13-a bakers dozen!

My 2 word title and hand journaling are there as well.



No idea why the text is in white boxes,...
