Just love the colours, the pinks and chocolate brown...yum!! and those gorgeous flowers, just screaming out to me to cut them up....and so I did!

Here is the fab sketch by Wendy....

and my layout, how cute are these two kids!

Thats about all.....happy scrapping!

Good Times....

I finally got around to having a play with Octobers Storyboard kit, I have been so busy I haven't even picked up this months kit and now Decembers is due out soon as well which I am really looking forward to as it is full of Xmas goodies, which I am desperately lacking at the moment.

Totally love these kits as you get so much out of them and can be used for both male and female pages! Such a great buy!

So I did the Inspired Blueprints sketch #60

and here is my page, normally I don't really scrap with purple but conveniently enough we had a wedding that had a purple theme....Perfect!

the only pieces I added myself were the Prima flower and the 7 Gypsies stickers.

STB Challenge

I have always loved the challenges at Scrap the Boys and have finally got around to doing one of their challenges. This is for the November 2nd challenge of altering chipboard. I have glimmermisted the chipboard and used the sketch provided.

another sketch challenge was over at Challenge Heaven using an Inspired Blueprints sketch....

and love these pics of Nate playing in the garden with this snail he had found and how he was so curious with this little critter.

Haven't scrapped as much as I would have liked this month, as it has been a very busy month for me and Dec will not be much better, but don't forget to check out the great sketches over at Sketchabilities for a chance to win an awesome prize pack.

Unconditional Love....

I originally did this layout for Octobers Kraft it up challenge but never got around to posting it so here it is anyways. I have used Octobers Storyboard Kit plus a few pieces of my own.

I totally adore this pic of Belle and Nate, it just shows how much these two totally adore each other, and that big cheesy grin on Nate's face is priceless!!

Hoping to sneak off soon and scrap as I really don't have much to show this month Plus I got a heap of new goodies for my birthday which I am just hanging to play with.
Hope your day is great......

For my papers I have used 4 different ranges of October Afternoon, a Teresa Collins journal card, some Prima and Petaloo Flowers, October Afternoon word stickers, Sass Lass chipboard and some other bits and pieces.

In order to qualify for a scrapkit worth $35.00 from Scrapshotz, you will need to complete a layout using Sketch #33 or Sketch #34 and link using Mr Linky ...you have until Nov 10 to complete this challenge!
