Never, ever give up - The Studio Challenge August

I nearly wasn't going to bother entering this as it is so late in the month but then figured - why not! This was the early August challenge over at The Studio Challenges. The challenge was to scrap 3 or more photos.
This whole month has just shot right by what with hubby away, selling a house and day to day living but have managed a couple of scrappy bits here & there.

Had to include a close up as it was the facial expressions that I just loved in these pics. She was so determined! I took them with my long lens from the back door so she didn't know I was there :)
Anyhoo, hope you are having a great day.
Thanks for popping by...Jx

I've been published :)

So finally about 6 months ago I got enough courage to send one of my lo's to Scrapbooking Memories for the first time and it was accepted!!! And yesterday the mag finally came out. 
But wait... there's more... it's also on the cover! OK so it's only the little one at the bottom, but hey it's still there. My daughter is very excited that she is on the cover of a magazine but asked if next time I could "do one with a photo of her now so that her friends will recognise her" lol

 Thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx

Just because I loved it...

About 12 months ago there was an OTP in Scrapbooking Memories (Vol 15 No 1) by Amy Prior which had been inspired by Martha Richardson on the Tattered Angels blog. I fell in love with it and have been wanting to do one similar ever since. During a recent clean out I found a canvas (1 of many actually!) and decided the time had come so here it is
 I also had an obscene amount of alphas and my brainwave was to use up HEAPS of them for the background but once I had completed it, it hadn't even made a tiny dent in the number of alphas I still have LOL. Rainbows are one of my most favourite things in the world so I now have this right in front of my scrap desk and love looking at it for inspiration.Thanks for popping by..Jx

Sketchbook365 challenge

Howdy, I am just squeezing this one in for the sketchbook365 challenge. It has been good and bad weather here - good because it has been raining A LOT which means nothing for it but to scrap, and bad because it is also very overcast so lousy to take photos lol. Anyway the sun has just popped its head out so have tried to take a couple of quick pics. 
 Still not great for the colours but hey, not the end of the world. As you can tell from the heading, (if you can read it) I could be in trouble if they ever see this but I never actually agreed so technically I am not breaking any promises. Please don't tell :)
Have a great day & thanks for popping by..Jx
