Kraft it Up challenge

The challenge on the Kraft It Up challenge blog is navy, orange, cream and kraft this month.

My layout is pretty photo heavy.  And for all the photos that didn't fit in my design are tucked into the Smash pocket on the right page.  I found the perfect washi tape design.  The map tape and road tape came in the same package.

I used my ray stencil again.  The shimmer makes the blue look lighter than it is in real life.

The Orange paper and banner pieces came from a Halloween paper pack.

White with 1 challenge

Another October challenge completed. ~ White with watermelon.
I'm on a roll with challenges this month. And having fun with the mists and ink sprays.  I picked up the ray mask at Unforgettable Memories and have been eager to use it.  I added paper strips, washi tape, netting and stamping to my rays.

So check out the White with 1 blog.  See what their designers have done with the challenge and play along.

Scrap the Boys challenge

The challenge is Blue and Green at Scrap the Boys this month.

Here's my layout. It's Daniel getting a Papa haircut when he was 3 years old.  A long time ago.

To see some closeups check out the Unforgettable Memories blog.

Once Upon a Sketch challenge

I managed to stretch the sketch at Once Upon a Sketch into a two pager to accommodate these pictures of my MILs garden.  The background started off as a blank slate. Two pieces of white cardstock.  I spritzed with purple mist and then a little red and then splashed some green ink across the layout.  The edges are rubbed with blue and purple ink and stamped with a Kaiser texture stamp.

Once I was happy with my background I layered scraps of patterned paper and lace using the sketch. 

Loved this sketch! And loved checking out the Once Upon a Sketch blog to see what everyone else is doing with it.


Scrap the Girls challenge

I completed an October challenge.  For Scrap the Girls.

A puzzle challenge and you must use these pieces:

- check
Squiggle - check
Circle - check
Rectangle - check
Strips - check
 My friends and I in Lake Louise. 

I had fun with the background.  I started with lime green cardstock and started misting and masking and stamping. Many layers later I ended up with the perfect background for my photos.
