Smile - Daring you to scrap..


The April challenge at Daring you to scrap is to use this sketch...

for your inspiration... Well when I saw this sketch, I really didn't know where to start... but I started by punching around the edge of white cardstock and have a few sprays of pink, yellow and blue mist and going from there! and this is my finished layout.. 

It all reminded me of a clothes line, which is where I got the journalling from... The most beautiful thing that you can wear is your smile!!

The next layout is for Handmade by Suzanne to use this sketch

I sort of stuck to the sketch! well there is a resemblance to it anyway!!!!!
I still have school photos that are waiting to be scrapped!! these are from 2010..

I used Graphic 45 papers..

and just for a little bit of a brag...

. after about 3 years of trying....

. this month it finally happened....

I was published in Scrapbooking Memories...Yaaaaa!! (yes that is me in the left corner... )  The layout is about my dear Mum-in-law on her 70th birthday, and now this dear lady is going through treatments for cancer.. so it is kinda special to me that this layout celebrating her was published...

Anyway thanks for coming by and sharing my layouts and my little bit of excitement!!

I hope you all are having a great day.... and all comments are so welcome!!
