This months challenge at Scrapville is a 4 part challenge called Scrapburst.
#1 is a numbers challenge:
 1 x Stamped image
 2 xPhoto's
 3 x PPapers
 4 x Flowers
 5 x Flags or Bunting

This was good to work with and was challenging to tie yourself to what was required. I do love to use bunting on a boy's page and I was really happy with the flowers that I made as well. I didn't put in the photo of him chasing me with the hose. He thought it was great fun soaking Grandma.
#2 Place /Thing Photo- not a person.
Wow! This one got me going through the photo's. I dont't think that I have scrapped a page without a person....aka. Grandchild.. on it. In the end I surprised myself and had a couple of different choices for the photo's. I had fun with this and it bought back memories of a great holiday in Bali especially a fabulous walk in the countryside through the rice paddy's. Even the dragonflies evoked memories of being left behind as I gazed at  beautiful dragonfly's that glistened in the sun while everyone else was way down the track.
#3 White + One.  Orange. With variation Orange must be the dominant colour.  Not an east colour to work with. But I found a lovely photo of Noah that worked well with the colour challenge.
#4 Spellbinders x 3 Die shapes. I had to borrow from a friends stash for this one. Janet had a fabulous day with Lovely Linda from Spellbinders giving an interesting demo which included 2 take home cards. My Dies haven't arrived yet...hence  the borrowing.
 The good thing about a scrapburst is that it gets you going to finish a few pages in a short time. I needed this incentive to get my creative juices going again.I had a lovely day/evening scrapping with a friend and it was so enjoyable. I have a few ideas going round in my mind so I might get more  pages done. This lot seemed to be all about Noah so I will have to even the score and do some of Lily and Chloe.

Boy in a Hat

 For their March Challenge White With One have...White with Brown and Doodling.I have trawlled through the stash and come upwith a couple of browns and then I have added a bit of doodling with the little figures and then added a couple of photo's of my favourite little man. I had an all day scrap on Sunday with friends so I was able to finish with time to spare.

And another, a close up of this cheeky fellow.

Thanks for looking at my page. Happy Scrapping.

Beautiful grandchild

With no apologies or further ado  I think it is the right and duty of everygrandparent to brag and skite. If you don't do it you are not doing the job right. If you want to continue reading consider yourself forwarned. Well I have been to visit our latest grand daughter so I have some fabulous photo's.. Oh and also to visit DD1 and SIL. Little Chloe is beautiful and is full of smiles and bubble blowing.

Janet at Scrapville has once again excelled herself with a beautiful Monthly Pack. It makes it easy when everything is there. This month it is Bo Bunny C'est la Vie.I was able to do a pretty girly page and ..believe it or not ...but I had some lovely girly photo's that did the papers justice.
I would love you to leave me a message if you agree.

I made some pretty flowers as embellishment from dress pattern paper and then spritzed them to pick up the colours in the paper pack.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my Blog.
