Scrap the Boys 'Happy New Year' Challenge

So I have finally decided it's time to have some 'me' time again and I have been scrapping. Like many of us, life just got in the way plus the fact that my creative side kind of disappeared and as a result the scrapping wasn't happening!  So for the first time in a long time (except for a wonderful retreat I went to last year) I have actually scrapped at home.  I went and bought myself a desk last week and set myself up a little corner in the lounge room and now I have the urge to create again.

What better way to get the mojo flowing that visiting several of the challenge blogs that I had neglected so terribly in 2013.  One of my faves was always 'Scrap the Boys' and I knew I had the perfect pic of Harry for this!

To kick the year off over at Scrap the Boys is the fabulous JANUARY CHALLENGE!

“Something NEW”

Pretty open really which was right up my alley.  All you need to do is create a layout featuring something new in your man/men’s life. Harry finished his first year of school last year (boy how time flies) but the pic is from back in 2012 when he was all excited about going to transition visits to 'big school'.  I love the innocence and pure joy on his face! Make sure you pop over and take a look at the great inspiration from the design team.

Hopefully this is the beginning of a very 'scrappy' year!!!! Thanks for popping by!

One for Sophie

When we were home on Easter holidays Sophie decided she would like to scrap with me, which was really nice! We were lucky enough to stumble across a challenge page for younger scrappers over at Show Us Your Stuff called appropriately 'Sophie's Corner'. The challenge this month was to use green.
Soph thoroughly enjoyed going through my scraps to find papers to match the pics of Troy and Harry washing the car. She had loads of fun completing this challenge, especially using the mist! I'm sure she will be waiting eagerly to see what the challenge will be next month!!

Daring You To Scrap April Challenge

So I actually got time to complete a couple of monthly challenges this month which was pretty cool. Decided to have a play around at Daring You To Scrap where the prize was an excellent voucher from Polly Scrap Kits. This month they used a sketch and we all know how much I love a good sketch.
I was inspired by the banners and used 3 small photos. They aren't the best pictures but I really just wanted to scrap the memory of Grace and Sophie when they were much younger!! Whenever we go to visit Grace, it doesn't matter what the girls are doing it is always together, following each other like little shadows!! Thanks for dropping by!

April at Scrap the Boys

Hopefully now things have calmed down a little I will be able to get back into posting more regularly. That's what I hope anyway!!! Over at Scrap The Boys this month they have a great challenge all about re-cycling:


We would like you to re-cycle some form of PACKAGING that is BOY related, this could be toy related, scrapbooking packaging, something from a magazine or book use your imagination....

Here is my layout!

Really had fun with this one. Used some colours I don't usually use and a fabulous Charm's Creation star as well. Loving these at the moment. Seem to be adding them to all my layouts!! Pop over and play along. The challenge is going to run until May 11 as Mel has been having some computer issues. Thanks for dropping by!!
