Another Blog. Just a quick blog. Scrapbookit has as it's challenge a Family theme. This has spurred me on to scrap a lovely photo of my four grandchildren. This is not a perfect photo of all of them but it is a great snap. I now have a high regard for photographers who take group shots of children....not easy!
I have spritzed the background with Dylusions ink spry and then I have masked over the top with texture paste. Even though the ink spray was dry the texture paste has absorbed the colours of the spray and has created a lovely background.

Thank you for looking at my Page.
Happy Scrapping.   Heather B.

Happy Friends

Well I have had a few days off work and have been able to scrap scrap scrap! When I saw the colour challenge palette for Scrap The Girls I was instantly thinking of ideas.The colours are unusual and sensational. What a glorious array of colours to work with. But it did test the mettle of my stash because they are an unusual combo and not what I usually work with. The first challenge was to find a photo that would work well with this combo. I chose a photo of my two grand daughters and tried to keep the page simple so that the colours didn't overwhelm the page.

What a colourful page. Happy Scrapping.

Sweet baby Blues

Another April Challenge.The colour challenge  at Scrap The Boys for April was just what I needed for a photo that I was looking forward to scrapping. The range of aqua's through to blue was very fresh and worked well with the photo of Fletcher at 12 weeks.

Now for this post I have very cleverly split the top section so that I have the print on one side and the picture on the other. How I did this I have no idea, so I thought I would go with it (mainly because I couldn't change it). Enjoy.
Happy Scrapping. Heather B.

WW1 April. Wonder

What a wonderful Easter. All  the family had a delightful get together.The weather was very kind and the grand-kids had a fabulous Easter egg hunt through the garden. The Easter bunny..aka Grandpa..had very generously left a plethora of Easter eggs hidden everywhere. I'm not really sure who enjoyed it the most. Grandpa hiding the eggs or the children finding them.
    Now reality has hit and  everyone has returned to their various homes, the house is quiet and it is off to work again.


 The colour challenge at White With 1 for April is Sand. Now for this I had to decide which beach I was thinking of....white sand ,golden sand...ahhhh to be on one of them now. Enough of the dreaming! This was a lovely colour to work with and I had some lovely photo's to choose from that would complement this colour scheme. These photo's of Chloe were taken when they visited some friends in the Riverland and she fell in love with their lovely, patient old dog. I hope I have given these delightful photo's the justice that they deserve. The photography of the page is a bit skewiff but I am a scrapper not a photographer.

Thank you and Happy Scrapping.   Heather B.
