Scrap the Girls March Challenge

 Hello there,

I hope it isnt too wet where you are... We have had some beautiful rain, not as much as those down south of us, but I am thankful to see the tanks full and the grass so green!!

I have created a layout for this months challenge for SCRAP THE GIRLS who have changed the way they are doing things now, they are over on FACEBOOK  so I shall pop my layout up over there.. 

I got these beautiful papers from Mintay at a recent scrap show and I just had to use them... and I found a photo of me in my teens, I was not too wild, but on a horse I was wild and free out in the sunshine on my dads farm..

This is the mood board.. Child of the Wild.

These papers fit the colors of the board too!

a couple of closer views..

I did lots of fussy cutting of the beautiful papers and a hint of stencilling for some texture..

Wild at Heart

This is one of my all time favorite photos of myself, on our horse Georgina.. I would have been perhaps 15 wearing singlet and shorts, and probably no shoes!!The best days!! ohhh take me back!!!

Thanks SCRAP THE GIRLS  for the inspiration to scrap this treasured photo..

Thanks for coming by, and thanks for the lovely comment you leave me to read.. I appreciate each one!!!

until next time..

Scrapmatts creating for March.

 Hello there!

It is the middle of the month so that means it is my turn over on the Scrapmatts Blog to share what I have created for my Design Team  work this month..

I went with a bit of a circular theme this month, using circle stencilling, circle chipboard and a circle frame!! You can check out all the details on the SCRAPMATTS BLOG HERE!!!!  

But I will share my layout and card here as well..

A Perfect Day.

I got these papers from AB Studio at a Craft show that was held last month.. so nice to be able to look and shop new scrapping stuff..!! And I have used  a lovely photo of my Grandie and her Daddy!!

and my card, using the same papers and chipboard and design..

The straws were from the supermarket I think and they can be painted or covered with paper or washi but I have left them plain..  It is hard to believe we are half way through March already..

Thanks for dropping by, I hope things are well with you.. Thanks for the lovely comments you leave me, I do appreciate each one!

Until next time..

Together is a great title for this page!! I have used Kaisercraft papers.

Fussy cutting and I tidied up my doily drawer and found I have sooo many doily's that I need to use them!!

Kraft+ - March Challenge

 Hello March! For me it means summer has ended.. yeah right!!! and Autumn is beginning!! 

And it means new Scrappy challenges to inspire us!

The challenge for KRAFT+ is one I had fun with and I am sure you will too!!

To have torn paper, and on a base of Kraft of course! The Design Team have amazing inspiration for you to check out over on the KRAFT+ BLOG HERE!!!! 

and my layout.. 

I have one of those steel rulers with the jagged edges that give you a really good ripped edge when you use it to rip paper so I went a bit crazy and created lots of strips of paper and layered them and created my layout...

some closer views..

Lots of layers and ripped papers!

Luscious ripped texture!

So much fun!!!

You can see more inspiration and pop your creation up over on the KRAFT+ COMMUNITY PAGE on Facebook HERE!!!!

Thanks for dropping by today, thanks for your lovely comments, I appreciate each one..
