Scrap Happy

So my creativity is back with a bang...thanks to Shimelle (who is becoming all to often my saviour). While I would have liked to have got more layouts completed for last weekends crop party, I'm delighted to have finished four new layouts and got my mojo back. I also learned that it doesn't take 2 hours to make a layout and yes, I should just follow sketches or prompts more often and 'just do it'.

So, here are my layouts....in no particular order....

Here's us on holidays in Achill -  photos I have been meaning to scrap for ages, so this goes under the 'photos from before 2011 challenge':

Here's my attempt at a 'half the page' challenge....love the photo, not sure about the sploge in the top right...let's just pretend it isn't there ok.

I 'heart' .....reallly like this layout. Am happy I also got to scrap Grace as there's always a comparison between who has most photos/layouts, etc....the plight of the second child!


Finally 'Galway Girls' is my effort for the group of three challenge. Am also delighted to have used these pics which I thought were going to be difficult to scrap based on dark background for photos (our hall carpet)...but I used Shimelle's 4x6 photo love template for my three pics and am super happy with result.


So that's it for now....but I think I might be in the habit now. Am currently making puppets for school....but my mojo is back. Hurrah!

Great layouts and i love the last one, made great use of those photos which are too fun NOT to have on a page! Well done on completing so many of the challenges too!

Hi, just popped by as saw you on LSNED forum. I love the layout you've done for the half page challenge. The photo is really cute, I like how you've layered stuff around it.

See you on LSNED! Jennifer x
