Creative Scrappers 228

Time again for another cute sketch at Creative Scrappers, this one created by Juliana Michaels
It took me a while to work out where I wanted to go with it, these pics of me and the girls on holiday have been in my pile to scrap for a while now and I am glad to have them finally scrapped
This was the sketch
I rotated it and switched it up a bit
I used a real mish mash of supplies including some really old Love Elise paper, some Teresa Collins. I hand drew the frames around the pics and cut them out. I bought the little mouse buttons when I was in the USA in 2004!
A couple of close ups

As always check out what the other DT girls did with the sketch, there are some awesome layouts to drool over. 
Things have been a bit quiet around my blog lately but for the next 2 weeks we are on holiday in Wales and I hope to get plenty of scrapping done, plus I have some great news to share with you next week!

Creative Scrappers 226

Wow doesn't time fly round, it's sketch 226 from Creative Scrappers already!
I have been having so much fun on the DT I can't believe my term is almost up!
Loved the sketch this week from Nicole a great one to work with
This was the sketch
and here is my take
 I dug through my scraps box and used all sorts of bits and pieces
I used a journaling pocket in place of one of the pictures and I fussy cut around my pic. I moved the chevrons to the bottom, I love the splatters on the sketch and added some black paint flicked from a brush here and there.
A couple of close ups

Hope everyone has a great Sunday

Stitchy not scrappy

I have been playing around with fabrics for a week or so, a little patchwork here a bit of purse making there. Last night whilst surfing I came across this tutorial for a woven basket using burlap and I thought I know I will make one with an old pair of denim jeans!
Here it is TA DA!
          I cut the small pocket from the jeans and re-stitched it to the front of the basket

                and added a red polka dot liner

I made it for my youngest Poppy and she loves it!

Creative Scrappers 224

Time for another great sketch from Creative Scrappers and as always amazing work from the DT
This was the sketch
And here is my take
Rodney is somewhat obsessed by chasing pebbles when we go to the beach, he sort of dives on them as you can see in the pic.
A couple of close ups

I used Fancy Pants wave searcher pp, along with a MME Journal  Card, then a few bits and pieces from various such as Sssafras, Jenni Bowlin and Jillibean Soup.
I got messy with a mask,gesso and texture paste and a little carried away with my stitched sun lol
Hope you get chance to play along this week
