Purple Pumpkin April challenge

Good morning! I just loved this sketch from PP the moment I saw it & knew that I would complete this challenge. I have been trying to scrap lots of old photos but was started to feel a bit bored so printed out this more recent shot of my gorgeous girl ;) and am really happy with the result.
 ...and here is the sketch & link
Have a great day...Jx

123 April Challenge

This month I have printed out 8 challenges to complete and this is now offering #2. I only found this site this month but am so glad I have. The challenge this month over at 123 challenge was to use duck egg blue (check), the word "today" (check) & a white wash technique (check)
 Here are a couple of closies to show the word. I have used a crafters workshop template for this and down the bottom (I don't think you can see it) so that is actually ends up reading "together today...together in beauty"

 Anyhoo, have a great day. Thanks for popping by...Jx

Laugh...and the world laughs with you

Hello again. I was inspired  for this lo after receiving my last scrapbooking memories mag. There was an article on creating sunbursts by Gail Lindner. I really love her style and thought a sunburst would suit this photo of my son and aunt. I can't help but smile everytime I look at this photo - they just look so darn happy! :D 

(And of course I have also included a chevron bag from greatest view so thanks x2 Gail)

A Grand Adventure..

Hi All, hope you have had a lovely weekend. The weather here has been glorious. My ds had his first footy game on Saturday. He was captain for the first game, which he was very excited about & also got man of the match. Love that beautiful smile they have when all is right in their world :)
Anyway, this is my offering for the sketch challenge over at Scrapfriends from when he was a little younger...

This is the sketch:

I am thoroughly enjoying working with their sketches. This one also has some hidden journaling on the tag behind the photo.
Thanks for popping by. Have a great week..Jx
