"We have recently had the AFL & NRL grand finals, the Rugby WorldCup, the US Open etc so this month we want a layout of your boys or men showing their colours. Please note that it does not have to be limited to footy or rugby, it can also include soccer, Touch Footy, Cricket, Tennis and sport that your child or hubby loves but you MUST make sure you have a photo of them in their colours!"
Well with quite a few sports mad boys in this house I could have scrapped
at least five pages with this theme.
But I settled on these photo's of 3 of the aforementioned boys.
Celebrating Geelongs' Win in the AFL Grand Final.
Haha I think Hubby is a little embarrassed about me capturing
him in such a frenzy. Hamish thought it was hysterical to see
Dad so excited and Andy was in as big a frenzy as his Dad!
I used the Chevron CW template and distress stains and inks this time and the black circles
are made with the wonky circles CW template which I stamped with black paint rather than
using it as a stencil.
And a few blue and white (just to tie in with the team colours the boys are wearing)
A couple of weeks ago I came across a heap of photos from 2006 that I hadn't scrapped. Amongst them
were these cute pics of my daughter playing at the park. So sweet to look back at these toddler pics, holding her favourite doll at that time and she always used to roll her tongue when concentrating. I'd forgotten that (and am planning a layout about it!).
I guess this is exactly why I love recording all these little things from our lives.
So, I put together this layout using some of these pictures and because there were
several pictures it suited the Get Picky inspiration challenge.
Totally loving my crafters workshop templates at the moment.
The one I used here is the mini-herringbone. Along with some paint, distress inks and stains.
The Black bubble wrap stamping was a nice contrast against all those bright colours.
(Thanks Jas for the big bubble wrap:)) I love it).
As you can see I was inspired by the colours of the quilts in the
picture and the touch of black.
Extra criteria were to use fabric
I added a calico bow and some fabric trims, and Prima fabric alphas.
I also used these Studio Calico Fab-ribs to make a boarder
around the whole layout.
If you haven't seen them they are sticky backed fabric strips.
Love these too lots of fun.
Cheers everyone, and thank-you so much for all the lovely people that take the time
Wow! November already, and the kids are into the 4th week of term four.
My eldest asked me today if he could do his Christmas list!!!
Better start thinking about Christmas!
But being the 1st of the month there are loads of challenges being announced, Yay!
Great time of the month for lots of inspiration.
I have the Scrap The Girls challenge to show you today, and it's a goody. :)
the challenge is to use Pink as the dominant colour
Here's my take on the challenge,
-Polka dot patterned paper as a base from Making Memories.
-The canvas tags are Maya road and I added some cabochon roses to them
-Some pink paint and stamps and the journal tag is Prima
Here's the whole thing, oh and there are some yummy pink lollipops on there from Charms Creations.
Pretty easy challenge hey? I'm sure you want to give it a go.
There are some gorgeous more samples on the STG blog here.
