Scrap The Girls Oct Challenge

This months challenge for the Scrap the Girls blog challenge is to use distressing on your layout and to use the word "LOVE" in your title.
Here's my LO - and I stretched the criteria a bit by using the word 'loving' instead - but I figured I can't win a prize so thats ok!! LOL

October Afternoon Rocket Age

I chose this range as part of my DT pack from Anna's last month - thinking of all the boy pages I could do with it - but when I got it, I was so impressed with also how versatile it is - and I ended up not doing boy pages at all! LOL. (although it would be perfect for those as well)

[NOTE: the "@ 13 years" layout is also up on Anna's blog as a step by step HERE
I have also used a Crafter's Workshop 6x6" template "Splats" which you can also buy from Annas' Craft Cupboard HERE.

Anna's Oct Sketch

Upload a LO based on this sketch (designed by Wendy Smith) by the end of Oct to Anna's Craft gallery - and go in the draw to win a $40 voucher including free postage.
And you WILL want a $40 voucher as over the last month Anna has got SO in so much of the new ranges out. Personally I am completely IN LOVE with the new Sidewalks range from October Afternoon - check it out HERE. A few of the items have sold out but if I know Anna, she probably has more on the way as we speak!! (all the papers are stil in stock though)
Anyhoo - sketch - thats what this post was about - here it is!

Bunch o' cards...

MME Lost & Found Christmas

Love this beautiful christmas range from My Mind's Eye - I'm a bit picky about my christmas papers that I use, I guess because christmas photos are already tricky enough to scrap without having tricky papers as well. But I chose this one and I love it!

one small catch - they spelt December wrong on the little calendar die-cut :(

Echo Park Victoria Gardens

In my DT pack this month from Annas' Craft I got this beautiful range - although irl the pink on both these is more prominent - not so washed out as my photos - it's a really pink.

All products on these pages available at Annas' Craft -
American CRafts Thickers black foam - Cinnamon
Prima Fairytale Roses French White
My Mind's Eye Lost & Found buttons
Thanks for looking!!

And on a side note - off to a busy bee today to set up for our hometown GRAND FINAL - SO exciting!! We have all 3 footy teams in it, 2 netball teams and a hockey team. It's been 16 years since the last time Morawa League footy was in the Grand Final so the town in full "footy fever" swing!! (we didn't even live here in Mo Town the last time they played - wish us luck!!!)

OA Modern Homemaker

In my DT pack this month from Annas' Craft Cupboard I got some of the OCtober Afternoon Modern Homemaker - which I just love.
This first one is of my Claire bear - who just loves the whole cowgirl thing - so when we went to the rodeo in Mingenew she was *so* in her element!!

And this one is very much inspired by the fabulous Amanda Hall! The colours also just reminded me of icecream so I went with a matching pic! (it makes me laugh looking at the guy-in-the-backgrounds wtf??)

Scrap the Girls

The challenge this month for Scrap the Girls is to use this quote:
And here is my example.

Give it a try to be in the running for some awesome prizes!!

Basic Grey Oxford

I have done these 2 pages with Basic Grey's Oxford range available from Anna's Craft Cupboard
. Perfect for those hard-to-scrap school photos - or more masculine pages. (even though mine both feature my girls - LOL)

MLS "Audrey"

In my DT kit from Anna's Craft Cupboard this month I got some of the My Little Shoebox 'Audrey' range and I love it!! Love that pink and turquoise combo.

And this my friends, is what happens when you put cupcakes on a wooden table - I'm clever huh??? In fact the photo doesn't even do it justice - it's REALLY noticable! I got the table for nothing though - so I'm not too upset. My kids just reckon I should do the whole lot like that - a polka dot table!!LOL

SBM Vol 13 no 7

This was the Masters Maya Road challenge - we got a couple of 'mists' on the pack and if you know me at all - you will know I just never know what to do with them!! So I just changed my cream flower to a pink one using the mist and I actually really like the colour of it - and by the way, it's a really easy way to colour something - not so gluggy as paint and easier to so simple to get in all the spots unlike ink. I also had another LO in this issue but I cant find it on my computer. It's a double page they actually published the wrong way around - but you SO can't even tell!!LOL. A very interchangeable LO!

SBM Vol 13 no 6

Continuing on my uploading catching up...

This one was a specified project for the Masters gallery for that issue - perfect timing for me as I'd been meaning to do this for ages.
It's a children's chore chart - and using the sticky felt memo board stuff the kids turn over their names when each job is done - so that it says "DONE" - easy for me to tell who hasn't done it.

And one dear to my heart..

SBM Vol 13 no 5

Just catching up on uploading some recently published works - this one is such an old LO! LOL. It was in Scrapbooking Memories a few months back
