Free for all

I missed the dead line for Off the rails free for all challenge but I will post it here any way.

Kraft it up December challenge

The challenge was to do a different style than you normally would so I went for a more painted background not as layered as I usually do. There was also a colour choice, I went with the Pink/Kraft/White/Gold tones.

I also played with Fantasy film on my chipboard heart...and it was fun.

Scrap the boys christmas challenge

My second layout is for

My younger Brother loves the colour purple and we always give him heaps about it, a couple of xmas's ago I got dress up stuff for every one. We had to take a purple prince shot of him.

December Challenge White with one

I needed some inspiration to scrap so I visited my favourite challenge sites and came up with these next four layouts.

I often check through my daughters photo file to find the latest selfie's. I really love
the natural unaffected photos she takes of herself.

Scrap Around The World....Mood board Challenge December


This mood board is from go check it out.

I was inspired by the beautiful soft bluey/teal tones and all the frames. I found a recent favourite photo I hadn't scrapped of my gorgeous sister in law who will not have a photo willingly usually.
One of my favourite products to use at the moment is this Ranger embossing powder called Antiquities Verdigris which I have used on the chipboard frames. 

I used some die cuts behind the photo and the chipboard pieces are from Twiddleybitz.

Off The rails Scrapping Challenge

I love acetate and clear accents so I had a lot of fun with this challenge from

I came across a packet of Little Yellow Bicycle acetate accents and immediately thought of this recent photo of my Dad with my Niece.

Below is a previous layout, a favourite, using acetate.

This layout I did at a recent weekend away which also had a acetate/overlay challenge. This is me as a baby.

Sentimental embellishments

I bought my Husband a watch for our first wedding anniversary nearly 27 years ago now. I picked it myself went and had the back engraved "All my Love Tracey" 22.3.87.  Well I could tell by the look on his face when he opened it that he didn't like it and of cause I couldn't exchange it as I had it engraved. So that was my lesson to never ever ever buy him a surprise. He nick named the watch BIG BEN and because I had bought a really good one, he couldn't kill it with a stick. It did eventually die about two years ago and my gorgeous friend Jo Kinder suggested I scrap it.  It has taken me a while and I have stepped out of my comfort zone with this layout and tried to channel the very talented artist Finnabair.

Here is my attempt at a mixed media layout.

I have constructed it on a 12 x 12 piece of chipboard so as it could take the colour sprays and the weight of all the metal pieces.

January challenge White with one

My sister got a new under water camera for xmas (2010).
That is how long it has taken me to scrap these photos.
The January Challenge lead me back to them.
The kids had a ball with the camera and I got some great photos to scrap.

January Challenge Kraft it Up

This was the page I needed to complement, not a true double but still look like they go together. The after op photo's had been sitting around for a while (august 2012) waiting for me to come up with something.
The January Kraft it up Challenge suited it to a tee. I am glad I can check off another job done.
