January at ScrapLounge

This was the January challenge over at ScrapLounge.

The sketch provided was from my lovely friend Miss Kym, whose sketches are always a delight to work with.

And here is my take. I took inspiration from the beach theme with my photos, and the yellow, then added other papers to pick up the colours from my daughters' bathers. I really like the effect of the black outlining, though I wish my eye was straighter! I can see plenty of places where I have stuck things down crooked.

BW2 January

I LOVE scrapping on black, but I just haven't done it for ages for some reason. I've been doing a lot of patterned paper backgrounds instead.

Anyway, decided to have a bash at the January challenge at Black with 2, and here's my attempt.

I'm not at all certain that this will pass, but since I love the LO, that's OK. I'm really happy with this one, mostly because I wouldn't have thought to scrap these photos otherwise!
They were taken on holiday at Herberton Historic Village in 2008, and show my sweet teenaged boy trying to let his little sister carry the umbrella. CUTE AS!

So here's my LO, and if you want to join in, click the link and take a look at the criteria.

I'm a Winner....

The gorgeous Tiff Sawyer just recently picked me to be on the CT for her This One's a Winner blog.

 You could have knocked me down with a feather!!
I'm so pleased and very excited to get to know the other team members. I've had a bit of a stickybeak at their work, and you should, too! There's a list somewhere on the side there ------>

 If you want to play along, just go to the blog and add your favourite creation for the month. There are usually NO criteria, and it can be any kind of scrappy project (LO, ATC, OTP, etc) (wow, how much does that resemble a bowl of alphabet soup???)
