Scrapping the photos from last week ...

Last Tuesday we went for a nice long walk, since the sun was shining and we all felt like going outside. We are so blessed to have beautiful walking trails right behind our house, that we just had no excuse not to go. We also took the camera and took heaps of pictures of each other. The pages above are made for the Year in Review album and the two layouts below are of the boys and Emma.

A card with handmade embellishments ...

I made this card with handmade embellishments for Scrap 'N' Craft. I am not a card maker at all, so making cards instead of layouts is a real challenge for me. But ... challenges are good, right? For instructions and a list of materials, please click HERE to see step by step instructions and photos.

I have been scrapping in the last weeks ...

Last week I completed my 'Week 9' layout which had to be about the activities and/ or work we do. I chose to make a collage of the different DT I curently participate in and my faith based activities like praying and reading my Bible. Obviously I am a wife and mum too, but I wanted to focus on the things I do besides being an housewife.


During the weekend I particpated in a Cyber Crop at Home & Scrapped and created two layouts. One of the challenges was to use a title from an ABBA song. I chose 'Thank you for the music' and made a layout about various events with the Journey Men, the band I sang in whilst living in Australia.

Another challenge was to create a layout with at least one layout on it (are you following this?) and to use doodling. I combined it with another challengurnale at the Home & Scrapped forum and that's where my title/ journaling comes from.

During our meeting with the Dare To Use Color girls, we scraplifted a layout. This is the layout I made. It is about one of our handsome boys, Rick.

New dare at 'Dare to Use Color' ... BROWN/ LIME

The two colours for this month's dare at 'Dare To Use Color' are brown and lime. You can see the layout I made for this challenge below. Make sure you check the Dare to Use Color blog to see the wonderful work of the rest of the Creative Team!

The competition is easy: you have to create a layout or project (it doesn't have to be a layout) using only the colours lime and brown.

The colours in your photo(s) can be different of course, but the focus is on those two colours. You are also allowed to use some black and/ or white, but the two colours of the challenge have to be 'dominant'.

You can mail your layouts to Hinke until midnight March 31, 2010. The winner will receive a shopping voucher from 'De Scrapheap'. I'd love to see some entries from my blog friends!
