Catch - up .....

Just thought I would share a couple of layouts that appeared in a recent issue of The Scrapbook Magazine.....

This one is "5 random facts about Me " .  Tricky.

I don't have that many photos of myself - something I really should rectify- and don't actually like talking about myself so I decided on a very small photo and kept the facts very light-hearted.

I kept the colours to a minimum and chose some patterned paper from Jillibean soup. I used the computer to print out the journaling, and coloured in odd sections to give the impression of an old typwriter.

The 2nd was a layout for the "Scraplift Challenge", and I liked the idea of a graphic/block style layout after perusing pinterest !

 I made the task easy for myself by using a 6"x4" block of Sn@p cards by Simple stories. I scanned the original photos but didn't alter them, I rather like the 70's orange tinge!

Thanks for stopping by

  1. The top page is so gorgeous and the bottom one so sweet with the matching outfits and the crochet flower. Your grid style designs are great, I like doing that sort of design occasionally too. xx

  2. These are even better IRL xx

  3. Great layouts, they have a real sense of fun.

  4. Lovely LO's.. I especially like the 70's one with the orange tinged photo's... why DID they do that??
