I haven't done much scrapping over the festive season but plan to get busy again now that it is over.
At the Lincraft sale yesterday I bought a florentine border punch for 30% off.Can't wait to have lacy edges on some of my girly layouts.

.Thank you to Eve and her team.I think this might be my first layout of the month win.I'm excited.
The prize is $25 voucher to spend so I'm off to have a look on scrapbuds.com.au
I've won cybercrop challenges before but I think this is the first monthly challenge I have won.Not sure what exactly the prize is yet but I think it is a voucher to spend at a scrapping store so it won't go amiss.

Meanwhile I have one layout left to do for Purplescraps cybercrop and have scrappers block.It is for a non red and green layout but Christmas.For me this is really hard.Most of my Christmas photos are already scrapped.Looking back those I have aren't the right colour scheme.I may have to think outside the square for this one.
I've joined a challenge for next year in a notebook format using scraps from each weeks scrapping.Kind of like a designers notebook. IT should be interesting.

The chipboard castle is from Scrapbooking'n'craft.Thank you Melinda for the great inspiration with it.
Also here is this months entry for Shabby chic butterflys and bows. Annabelle likes nail polish ,shoes,handbags etc She is a 4 year old fashionista! I bought the tiny dresses at a craft fair several years ago so finally got to use them on this layout.We had to feature gingham so I used it for the background circle.

Here's this month's entry for the Artastic challenge blog.It was a picture ofa greek woman with columns and ferns/palms and flowers. I took this one quite literally and used the same colour scheme-rust,cream and green as well as a photo of Thena and I from Greece.I had ribbon with criss crosses that matched the rail in the background too.The column button was bought at a patchwork shop today for $4 and cracked in half as i was sewing it on. Thank goodness for double sided tape to hold it in place.

These pictures are of a mini album I made for Erica's birthday.As we travelled around Europe she took photos of her feet in various places.I've printed all those off and done a double page of an A5 notebook for her. On one side is the picture and the other is left blank for her to write her memories/impressions of the place.In some instances there were 2 photos so I then left a double note page.The cover and theme of the papers in her album are her 2 favourite colours,purple and black.

I've kept it plain to emphasise that wonderful photo. The fleur-de-lis is the symbol of Florence.The curly chipboards are from scrapbookingncraft.com.au.The paper was originally dark green from Sandy Lion and is called "tile" I painted over it using Dimensional magic as well, which emphasised the embossed surface on the patterned paper. This is my submission for White with one's November challenge.I haven't agonised over a layout so much in ages.

The colour challenge is pink/brown so I can use one of the layouts that I did at the retreat. The numbers challenge is yet to be tackled!
I also spent some cash at a site called "What is old is new" where they have pre-packed kits.I couldn't resist the one I purchased.

I can't work out how to align these so hopefully you'll be able to see them okay.The two drinking ones are a powerful "goldfish bowl" featuring tequila.The group were in the Japanese gardens in hobart and the other one is me drying "opals" while working on a page, just to prove I did some scrapbooking!

I feel a black and bottle green layout or two coming up!
