Happy - STG, Studio Challenge

It is hard not using the gorgeous colours on the Scrap The Girls moodboard, because I have so many photos this month just calling those colours! i have also taken inspo from the wood backgrounds and feathers.
I decided to join in the scrap lift challenge at The Studio Challenges and have taken the sketch/design and washi tape features etc from Elisabetta's layout.

Happy scrapping!
Sue :)

Have a great week!

LO for Sassy Scrappers and Jot

Its getting late in the month, but enough time to do another layout! I have spent a few days this week trying to de-stash! But, it is cool to also find stuff you haven't seen in years!! Hahaha! Like this Basic Grey, Euphoria paper and the MME, Penny Lane transparency, that I have used in this layout!

So, I have used the colours from the beautiful mood board over at Jot magazine and combining it with the challenge at Sassy Scrappers -a sketch and word (Spring) challenge. So far, our spring has been more dark clouds than sunshine!

Looking forward to a sunny October!
Sue :)

Smile - SATW, Charm's Creations P & P

The board at Scrap Around the World this month is gorgeous!! I love the vintage feel and soft colours. I have used the colours in a beach theme because I wanted to scrap this lovely pic my daughter sent me from their recent trip to Rarotonga. But I added the lace, wooden embellishments and a gorgeous vintage heart from Charm's Creations.
I have also used the sketch from the September Challenge at Charm's Creations.

The Scrap Around the World mood board: 

 The Charm's Creations sketch that I rotated because I had a portrait photo:

Hope you all have a great scrappy week!
