This month I am doing a challenge for a new blog that I have come across called Archi-Scraps. The criteria for September was to use Lots of Something. I have a cute little daisy punch that I bought very early on in my scrapbook adventure. I have used and loved it for a long time but it has had a bit of a holiday in the drawer of late. So I dusted it off and went to work with it. What was I thinking! I punched and punched, different colours, punched some more and THEN I had to stick them on by one. As I said, what was I thinking. Obvoiusly I wasn't because I then decided to put a diamente in the middle of each by one. But mother never bred a quitter so I persevered. It was worth it because I loved my page when I had finished. I hope you enjoy my page and my Lots of Something was Daisy Flowers.  
Cheers and Happy Scrapping. Heather B.

Having a lazy Sunday I decided to try the September 15 Challenge for Let's Get Sketchy.  I loved the golden tones of this range of Kaisercraft papers and had a sweet photo that the colours complimented. To soften the background I added a light spritz and then layered papers and cut outs to bring out the design of the sketch. Then adding some embellishments gave it all some depth.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping. Heather Bensley.

By The Seaside. Stuck! Sketches.

  For the challenge for Stuck Sketches I have turned the sketch around to make it portrait orientation to suit my photo. I have tried to continue the beach and sand theme with the colours that I have used in the various papers.

Special Time

The colour for the White With One challenge Soul Pea was really delightful and I loved working with it. The photo I chose to use for this page was of Chloe and Mum and matched well with the colour.

Just Super Let's get sketchy

The Lets Get Sketchy challenge for September featured banners which I love to use. This page is the opposite to the previous one. This page is monochromatic and so the focus on the page is the photo of our super little guy taken a few years ago. I love banners on pages and use them quite frequently. Even though this page is quite subdued I love it. Sometimes less is more.  
Just Super
I hope you enjoy my page.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping.

Happy Days Scrapbookit September

I have a few pages to put on my blog this month. I had a wonderful weekend away at Ballarat with some delightful friends. Organized by our mother hen Jenny we six just scrapped and scrapped and chatted and ate and really had a lovely time catching up. Wonderful!! Unfortunately our number seven didn't make it ending up in hospital with severe flu complications. Vicki I hope you are recovering. We thought of you a lot and missed your usually bright company. My first page is for the Scrapbookit challenge which was a sketch challenge and a wonderful bright colour palette. With a bit of spritzing on the background to pick up the colours and lots of fun with the bright colours. I like pages to be square and neat and the angles on the page were a bit of a challenge. When the page was completed I was quite happy with it and the angles seemed to work.
Happy Days
I hope you enjoy my page.
Cheers and Happy Scrapping.Heather B.

Cousins Always Love Time Together

This page is my challenge for the 123 Challenge Blog for September. The criteria was Denim, Sand, and sky blue and also using the words Love and Always. There was also a sketch as a guide as well. Because I didn't have two photos's that would work with the sketch I used a single photo and cut it in two. I was happy with that and thought that it worked well.
Pop over to the 123 challenge blog and have a go yourself. Cheers and Happy Scrapping.  Heather B.
