And here I am again - twice in a month, is that a first ?!!

I've been a bit slow on the scrapping front this week.  I know I said I want to do all the sketch challenges possible this month, but I've also started knitting 'trauma bears' for the Red Cross so I guess some of my time that would otherwise be spent scrapping is now devoted to a charitable cause.  If you don't know what trauma bears are, google them.  They're a knitted bear given to children who are taken in an ambulance, admitted to ED, Childrens wards etc.  Such a worthy cause, I just hope my knitting is up to scratch.

Anyways, here is my scrappy layouts completed since my last post:

Together layout - Annas Craft Cupboard October Sketch.  these photos were taken at a wedding we attended a year ago (how time flies!) I'm thinking I might go back to that haircut - what do you think?

The next layout is of my BFF and her hubby - taken when they were in  Sydney last October.  This layout was inspired by the Purple Pumpkin October Sketch.  I know I don't own any Purple pumpkin products but I should...cause from what I've seen they're soooo cute.

And lastlyThe Scrapbook StoreOctober Sketch was perfect for a few pics of our holiday earlier this year when we stopped in at Barrington Tops for a couple of days:

I know these last two are very similar because I used the same paper range, but I don't mind because the Anthologie 'Everyday Moments' is soooooo versatile.  I have made quite a few layouts with it and still have heaps of embellies left.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone

Challenge time again.

I'm determine this month to do as many sketch challenges as I can.

So far I've done 3 - not many I know but better than last month!

Here is my version of Stuck Sketches Layout using photos of our holiday in February.

Scrapbook Savvy always has a great 'doable' sketch - here's my interpretation:

And Creative Scrappers Sketch #228 had me creating this:
I'm not fussed on how this one turned out - its a little to 'old school scrapping' for me.  Oh well, its done now and its staying like that LOL

I'm currently working on Anna's Craft Cupboard Sketch - stay tuned.
