mme december sketch

I love playing along at MME they have so many scruptious products and they all co-ordinate so well
The majority of this is Lost & Found2 - Sunshine 
I mixed up the brads to get them the way I wanted them and also added a brad from another collection(it's the one under ever)
The title was cut from a sheet of Andre Victoria collection and I added glossy accents to it to make it shiny
I love scrapping the doggies and these are their "professional pics" (lord knows how we got them cos the lady who was taking them didnt have a clue about dogs lol)
Hope you like it

My Creative sketches

I decided to play along again this month at My Creative Sketches there are some fab prizes on offer and it is another great sketch with some awesome DT inspiration
This was the sketch
And this is my take on it
It's hard to get a decent pic with the "Great Bristish weather" but I did my best
I used mainly Cosmo Cricket - Togetherness papers
matted everything in Kraft (borrowed the idea from Jenny who does some stunning work all matted in black)
The red alphas are by Crate Paper and the blue are by Lily Bee
The teeny tiny buttons are from my stash
Hope you like it

AAM challenge is live

{AAM December Challenge}: Your Brand

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the first official challenge for the new All About Me scrapbook challenge blog. We have a fun one this month that is all about creating your own brand. What does this mean? Creating your brand is all about finding the things that represent you. Understandably, this challenge might seem a bit confusing and challenging. When I first was introduced to creating this type of layout, I thought it was impossible. My brand? What do you mean my brand? Like my favorite shoe company? Mmmm... not quite.

Hopefully if you are at this blog, you know our focus is on the inside. We're using scrapbooking as a way to creatively journal our lives. So when I talk about Your Brand, I mean finding color, symbolism, imagery and journaling to create a layout that is YOU. Self portrait, a slogan, something that represents YOU is what we are looking for here. Use your favorite colors and products. This should be a layout that you can hang on your wall, look at everyday and say, "Yep... that's me and I'm pretty awesome!" In a way, we are labeling ourselves but in a positive light.

This challenge really took some thinking about, I was looking for pics and I came across these ones of me acting the fool in the garden. The outfit was for our girls weekend away I got the silly pineapple sunglasses at a car boot sale as with the top & the wheelbarrow well that speaks for itself! Oh and just to clarify the wheelbarrow wasn't part of the outfit! don't think it would have fitted in Paula's car lol. This got me to thinking how I love to make people laugh (generally with me and not at me LOL)
I love this colour combo its so bright and fresh and of course it matched the pics! As my logo was the smiley face I wanted a daft bitty type feel to the page and after lots of fiddling I was finally happy with the way it turned out. The slogan reads "If every word I speak makes you laugh, I would talk forever" Sums me up quite well!!
Hope lots of you will play along with this fun challenge, check out the blog for more great inspiration from the CT
