Gidday! How are you all on this lovely day..  As I sit here and look out the window at all the green grass I am amazed at the transformation of my garden after getting some wonderful rain..  Green is so much better than brown!!

Anyhooo I am just putting up a few layouts I have created for this weeks challenges for ANNA'S CRAFT CUPBOARD OLD SCHOOL CYBERCROP which is on Facebook. I have managed to do 3 layouts at this stage so I thought I would pop them up.

The first layout is for the ENGLISH CHALLENGE which is to
So I used a photo of my Dd and the kitten we got for her for her 16th Birthday and the story behind her cats name..

The layers under the photo.. I got these papers from Spotlight.

My journalling..


The second layout is for the MATHS CHALLENGE which is..

Humm I thought about this one for a bit and then came up with an idea.. I found some number alphas and put them on my page making note of where my photo was going to go and went with that!

Then I covered the numbers well with gesso..

When it was really dry I began spraying with mists and dabbling the excess until I was happy with the result.. and I forgot to take a photo but you can see the colors on the back ground..

A few splats are always a good idea!!!

Grandparents day.

And I used this years photo of Grandparents Day for this page..  How blessed my kids have been to have their Grandparents support them all through their school life..

And the third layout is for the BLIND CROP CHALLENGE which was held on the saturday but I missed it as I had to go and pick up my Daughter from work but as I had all the ingredients ready I did it later on..

So I followed the instructions and when it said 'make the layout your own..." that is where I did some fussy cutting of flowers from the papers and added to my page..

some closer views..

I used new Prima Papers and flowers for this layout..


I am liking the clean look lately, it is funny how I create according to mood!!  I guess all artists get a bit moody!!!hehe!!

So thanks for coming by to check these out. Lots of inspiration over at the

    We are all a bit moody and that's allows us to get creative in different ways! Artsy and fartsy!!! ;-)

  5. Oh these are all gorgeous Lizzy! I love how your layouts tell a story. And I also think it's a good thing to change up your style according to how you feel. That way, the page reflects more how you feel and you grow and expand as an artist by trying different things!

  6. Beautiful as always Lizzy, hard to pick a fave. A beautiful story behind the first layout, great use of the numbers (always good to use up old apha's , numbers ) and the third layout is just so pretty. Nothing like rain to green everything up
