White with 1

The March challenge at White with 1 is white + kraft + layering.
This layout is very different for me and I just love the way it turned out.

A couple of close-ups.


Our Cyber Crop was on this past weekend and I was away on a retreat...AGAIN! Lol!
This is the only challenge (Sunday Roast) I managed to get done because it was on Sunday night after I arrived home. I was all scrapped out but got it finished.

Creative Scrappers #197

I absolutely adore this sketch and will have to use it again sometime I think!
I took this photo at the Butchart Gardens on Victoria Island, Vancouver, Canada. They are the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen any where. As usual when on day tours you never have enough time to visit so, I intend going back there some day.

Sketches with a Twist

This month at SWAT we had to use this sketch and use three identical embellishments.
I used three yellow buttons.

Scrap Boutique Autumn Challenge

Didn't think I would get this challenge done as these colours certainly aren't my favourite!
We had to use this pic for inspiration and the sketch for the challenge.

The Color Room #102

Oh gosh! These were definitely not my colours this week but was determined to go out of my comfort. The last couple of weeks I've done cards but thought I'd do a LO this week.

My Mind's Eye Card #33

For this challenge we could use a theme of our choice. I cut all these little hexagons out and stuck them to the background of my card then went around them with a pen.

Once Upon a Sketch

Another first for me this month. Have been wanting to do this challenge for a long time but just didn't seem to find the time!

A couple of close-ups.

The Color Room #101

Loved the colours this week but actually found them hard to work with. Maybe because I used the Kraft colour for the base of the card.

The Color Room #100

The papers I used for this card I just love...that's why I did a card because I need to keep them!! Lol!!
I may do a layout for next week.
Took me ages to make this card and there are about ten layers but am happy with the result.
