The first challenge for this month from  'Lets Scrap Sketches'

The talented Mich has provided the inspiration.


and here is my take on the sketch using a couple of my favourite Christmas photos of the boys. 
I used a Stampin up die for the ornaments  
 And from my stash a Christmas banner.  Unfortunately the photo does not do it justice 

 Rather than a large number of photos I choice to use some tags that I had in my stash. 

Hope you like the layouts.  I can't wait to your interpretation. 
And remember there is a prize up for grabs.
Happy scrapping

I was certainly inspired and with the New Zealand school year coming to an end in the next couple of weeks the teachers gift is high on my boys list of things for me not to forget.
So here is what I have so far.
The box opens to reveal a card surrounded by Christmas ornaments.  
  I made each ornament using Stampin up dies. 
I topped the box with paper strips gently moulded to give the rised ribbon look.  

Can't wait to see your creations!

Let's Craft and Create - Challenge #119 Winter Thanks to those who took part in our  last challenge...
#118 Halloween/Autumn/Fall

Now team 2's inspirations are now availble to check out for Challenge 119
Here is my two pieces of inspiration.  I decided on two cards this challenge.

I must say that here in New Zealand winter is over, Spring is here and summer is on it way. So it was a challenge to do a winter themed card. 
I used the winter colour on one card and a near christmas type thank you card. 

for this card I used real feathers
 
Good old prima flowers and some misc embelishments from my stash  
 And I made an dinked a little tag

For this card I embossed the white card stock and embellished with pearl drops. 
 I used a Tim Holtz leave diefor the banner with a few gold metal leaves from my stash.
Hope you like them, and I look forward to see your work. 
Please leave a comment with your blog so I cam come visit.
Happy scrapping.

Lets Scrap Sketch Challenge for November - Brothers

Wow nearly the end of the year and here is the first of the challenges for the month of November from  'Lets Scrap Sketches'

The talented Mich has provided the inspiration

and here is my take on the sketch.  I would love to see your take on the sketch and also have a look at your blogs. 



Now for this challenge I decided that I would attempt to use just stuff from my every growing stash. 

I used a stencil that was a a gift on a magazine I purchased. 
 And my trusty old flag punch for the banner. 
 I decided against matting the photos as my boys do prefer the simple look on their layouts.
Here are couple more close ups.
 


Hope you like it and I can't wait to see your layouts.

Happy scrapping
