The August challenge for 123 Challenge blog is Chocolate , Teal, Violet plus the sketch. And also using the words Family Fun. For this challenge I was holidaying in Adelaide ( I wasn't organized enough to do it before I left) and didn't have all my bits to scrap with so I raided my grand- daughters craft box and any thing that I could lay my hands on. Then to my delight I discovered that there was a quilting and craft show at the Adelaide show grounds. So off I went in the pouring rain, read torrential rain, and had a delightful morning browsing to my hearts content. Leaving laden with goodies that I couldn't leave behind and I thought that maybe I had enough to finish my page.
I was delighted to be asked to be the 15th June guest designer for Stuck!? Sketches. This was a sketch challenge. I love this photo of my daughter and grand-daughter after an afternoon swimming at Lake Hume.
I hope you have enjoyed my version of the challenge.
This month the challenge for 123 Challenge blog is White, Love and bling. I have created a page using the Scrapberries, Cherished Jewels Collection and then added the white accents and bling. I think that this is my new favourite page. Pop over to their blog and check out how the other design team members interpreted the challenge and then Try the challenge yourself.
I was browsing through the Kaisercraft blog when I found their challenge for May. The challenge was a Kaiser Bingo. Choose the letter and match with something that to use on the page. I used P for paper, D for die and F for flower.In my stash I had the Kaisercraft paper range Cottage Rose which suited a pretty photo that I had of Chloe eating a cupcake that she had helped make and decorate. I spritzed the backgound after I had flicked the page with water. This created a water mark effect. Then I used a Kaisercraft script stamp and over stamped the spritzing. Just a simple background but enough to give a nice segue for the papers from the Cottage Rose collection that I had distressed and inked.The Kaiser die...lattice gave an interesting feature to blend in with the photo and papers. A flag banner and some bling and flowers completed the page.
And just a feature of a section of the page.
I hope you have enjoyed my page.Cheers and Happy Scrapping. Heather Bensley.
I just loved the colour pallette and the sketch this month at D-lish Scraps. I have had this photo for a while and I have been waiting for something special to do with it.
This challenge was perfect and I love the way it has turned out.
This weekend I am at a wonderful scrapbook retreat in the gorgeous town of Bright in North East Victoria.Vibrant autumn colours, mist on the mountains and a nip in the air. What a wonderful ambience for scrapbooking.
The team at Stuck!Sketches have challenged us with a great sketch for the May 15 challenge. I chose a lovely summery happy snap of Noah and used the Cocoa Vanilla You Rock collection.
Thanks for taking the time to look at my page.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping. Heather Bensley.
