last minute layouts

Well not quite last MINUTE - who can scrap a layout in minutes, certainly not me. 
But the last weekend for January I got to spend away at a retreat with some scrap booking friends.
I had a lovely time thank-you; Malinda, Melissa and Jasmine, it was just what I needed at
the end of the school holidays to recharge the batteries before the beginning of Term 1.
I managed to scrap 10 layouts, two of which were for january challenges.

This first one is for Daring You To Scrap- a brand new challenge blog and the theme for january 
was to use 'paper scraps to create a background'.

I used lots of scraps of an Echo Park paper range I had all but used up. Then I gessoed over the top of it all. such a quick easy method to create a background. Then I added some bubble wrap stamping with paint and some Dylusions border stamps (love those stamps).

And this layout of two of my gorgeous boys holding their footy trophies, is for Anna's Craft Cupboard
January Sketch.

I used some of my recently purchased Washi tapes from D-Lish scraps. Oh I love all the colours and 
patterns available in the store. How gorgeous are these red dots and checks?!

I'll be back to share some more of my layouts later in the week.  
Cheers. :)
