Lil' Miss Strawberry

"My other Nana gave me this very cute strawberry playsuit for my first birthday!"
Its not very often I use lots of papers from the same range, but all of these (apart from the green chevron) are from the new Kaisercraft, Telegraph Road collection. Such gorgeous colours in this range!!

This is a layout for February Week 3 of Let's Get Sketchy

Captain Blake

Blakey had his first little holiday with Mum and Dad on a friend's boat for two nights. They went out to Great Barrier, had the best weather and fishing conditons. Blake loved it, slept soundly with the gentle rocking and loved being in the front pack fishing with Dad. (Thats another layout to come! Haha!) Dad, of course, couldn't resist putting the captain's hat on him!

After finishing my DT stint on the Sketchabilities blog, I still couldn't resist playing along with this awesome sketch!! Such a great sketch, Karan!

And the colour scheme in the Scrapfriends February colour challenge was perfect!

Thanks for looking! Best wishes!

GD 1-2-3-Get Scrappy

I am very excited and honoured to be the Guest Designer at 1-2-3-Get Scrappy this month! If you haven't checked out their challenges yet, then head over here and have a look. They have a fun tic-tac-toe board, to play along with each month.
 It is fun to combine with one of the many sketch challenges around. I have chosen the cool sketch from Scrapfriends and the mood board from Scrap around the World, to combine with this layout of my precious, little granddaughter on her first birthday.

So, this months board!
I choose the line: Polka Dots, fibers, vellum

Apart from the hearts which I diecut with a Tim Holtz die, the pink words are also vellum. They come from a Quotable Quotes stack that has been in my stash for years!! Now that it has been 'rediscovered' I think I will be using the stash a lot more!

The papers and filmstrip overlay are Kaisercraft (background paper from the new Violet Crush range)
And just had to make one of the Envelope maker bows from the many You Tube videos!! Haha!

The February Scrapfriends sketch: Perfect!
Sketch Challenge #22

The Scrap around the World mood board: lots of pink, hearts and a mood of celebration
Hope there is something here to inspire you!

Cheers, Sue :)

LO for Creative Scrappers #261

Miss M looked like a little angel on Christmas Day and a little overwhelmed by all the people and activity.

I have used sketch #261 from Creative Scrappers: A very cool sketch by Kristine Davidson!

It is so long since I have used flowers on a layout! There was a time when I would never have a layout without flowers!!
Have a great weekend, 
Sue :)

Happiness is my first boat trip!

Don't you just love these chubby little legs?!! At 5 and a half months he was standing, with Mum's hand only a few inches away and only long enough to get the photo, but it made a very cute photo!!

I have combined the Stuck?! Feb 1st sketch                                 and the Frosted Designs mood board
                                                                                                  colours :blues, white, black, and touch of                                                                                                                                     orange and the bird
