Scraplifting ...

Do you scraplift?

definition: SCRAPLIFTING
Scraplifting (skrap-lift-ing) – The act of copying ideas and designs from another person’s scrapbook page to use in your own pages. Designs or ideas can be copied in whole or in part and is largely subjective.
Scrapbooking Top 50 AUS is having a SCRAPLIFTING CYBER CROP right now!!
We are scraplifting some of the current SCRAPBOOKING MEMORIES MASTERS!!
Head over to the forum and find out all the details.  **Remember, when scraplifting, give credit to the original creator.**
I lifted this beautiful page of Bernii Miller's ...
I have kept a similar page design as Bernii's - I saw 4 distinct areas on her page and while I went with only 2 areas on my page, I used masking to replacing the other 2.  I used doilies in similar spots, and other similar embellishments like the title spots and paper clips, strips at the top and bottom of the page.  I even kept to a similar colour scheme.  Thanks so much, Bernii, for your fabulous layout to lift!"

You'll spy some Rainbow Splendour leaves!! 
Come over to SBT50 and play along!!  There are two other fabulous designers to be inspired by too!!

It nearing the end of the month, but it's only now I've had some time to enter a few challenges.  I loved THIS SKETCH from Mad About Scrappin ...

I turned it on it's side and created this:

You can still see the sketch, right?

Savvy April sketch

Hello everyone!  Well we are halfway through the month already and who has the April Savvy sketch on their list?  Or maybe you've already done it?  I just love this one - inspired by a lovely page of Sarah Martin's ...
April BIG Savvy sketch

Here's my sample ...

I have used the gorgeous Glitz Wild And Free range (some left in store!!!) ... this would have to be one of my favourite ranges - I bought 2 of every page and I so RARELY EVER do that!!!

Loving the border on the sketch and I used some of my TWINE from Savvy ...

Hope you can play along!!
Upload your layout to the gallery by midnight 30th April 2014 to be in the running for this randomly drawn prize.  Remember your page should be a new creation for this challenge alone.

Little Fish

Time for another FWAB share!

Recently I found this photo of my daughter taken a couple of years ago now - but I loved the colours in the photo and had these papers out that matched perfectly!
I used part of a FWAB Silver Kate's Corner to add some sparkle to echo the light on the water:
And added some FWAB Olive Green and Rose Pink pearls to the chipboard and cardstock butterflies:
They were just the right touch!!
Thanks for visiting here today!
Happy scrapping :)

Scrap Around The World - April challenge

Have you seen the latest Scrap Around The World challenge?  It's an amazing mood board that caught my eye the first time I saw it:

I love how simple it is.  I love the black and white with the hint of colour.  I love the textures!  I was so inspired, I just had to play along!

I have a black and white background - I added some thread over my washi strips for some added texture.  I used tones of blue, mint and seagreen, with pops of black and white, with some grey thrown in.

{That's a FWAB Jack vine!!  Love my FWAB!!!}

{And a Greatest View badge}

Apart from being a Guest Designer for the February challenge at Scrap Around The World, this is my first time playing along at this challenge site :)

Thanks for visiting!! xx

In the middle of the photo shoot, this little man got tired :D

I've created this page using the April sketch at Words Or Whatever (WOW) ...

Loved it!!!  And yes, I did use some WOW ... the film strip wood veneer ...

and this gorgeous chippy flourish!

(there's some Rainbow Splendour butterflies in there too!)

Thanks for visiting!!

She's unique ;)

Happy Monday folks!  It's the first day of holidays here.  No lunches to pack, to alarms waking everyone up and no morning rush.  Bliss! 

I thought I'd pop in and share the Scrapbooking Top 50 sketch for this month ...

I had lots of fun creating that one!! :D

And I also had lots of fun creating a sample:
{I flipped the sketch on it's side}

Yep - she's unique alright!
