C'Mon Grandpa

Goodness me but the first month of 2016 has galloped by and is nearly over. After our heat wave and 40+ degree temperatures in the first half of the month  I am at this moment working in my scrap room listening to the beautiful rain and loving the cooler temperature. I can almost hear my garden sighing with satisfaction and contentment.
A late blog for Scrap The Boys.  I have been running a bit short on time in the second half of the month but I couldn't resist their colour challenge chart.
I have been a little bit literal in my version of the challenge. I loved the panel doors with the rusty panel and hinge, also the beautiful greens and the studs on the edges.  So I have tried to emulate the panels. I have used Dusty Attic rusting powder for a rusty hinge and key to the door. And I have also hunted out my stash of brads to copy the door studs. I was also taken by the bamboo and have tried to incorporate that as well.I felt that all of this sat well with a fabulous photo of Fletcher and Grandpa.

Happy Scrapping. Heather B

Lovely Chocolate Ice-cream

The challenge at Let's Get Sketchy was an interesting sketch with some different shapes and angles. Having two photo's on the page was great because I have a fabulous series of photo's of Chloe eating chocolate ice cream.  I will use the rest of the photo's on a pocket page and it will tell the whole story with this page as the feature.

Cheers and Happy Scrapping.

So Happy Together

Another challenge. I was thrilled to win a prize in the 123 Challenge blog for their December challenge.
Their January challenge is Yellow/Texture /Together. Yellow has always been a favourite of mine. Such a happy colour.On this theme I chose  some summery photo's and used texture paste that I had coloured yellow and stenciled some sun-rays.
I was happy with the bright and sunny feel to the page.

Happy Scrapping

Pretty Cool

Well this page is the first cab off the rank for 2016.
I had a wonderful time at the Scrapbookit retreat in Spring and  I am looking forward to the Autumn retreat in March with much enthusiasm. I am looking forward to catching up with all the wonderfully talented ladies that I met in Spring. I picked up some great ideas especially a great way to amalgamate my single pages with project life.
Scrapbookit  have a delightful little sketch for their first challenge of the year. I used as the main an assortment of Kaisercraft papers from their Little One collection. Even though it was the boy range I was able to make a pretty and sweet girl page. I added some pretty embellishments and was quite happy with the result.

Happy New Year and I hope you enjoyed my page.
Happy Scrapping.   Heather B.
