Layouts of Scrapbooking Past

So I thought that I would post some scrapbook pages that I have done over the last few months......
Some good some not so good. All of them are a learning curve. They have help me develop the style I like.

The Girls at work are always dressing up. This day they dressed as the French Chefs 'Andre' and 'Rieu' and we when around all the residents to introduce them.....

Here are some close ups of the beautiful flowers by Prima

This is the page I did of a trip to New Caledonia, when I was 21. This was one of the first I did using flowers.

Some close ups of the flowers

Some of the wonderful People where I work..........

My wonder friend and teacher Alicia

This is a page I did for Kraft It Up

I think that these pages were done for a sketch challenges...........


But wait the last page was a Prima Colour Challenge....... I love the bright colours in this layout.

Thanks for taking the time to look through some of my past scrapbook pages....... I hope you enjoyed them.........

Weekly Challenge - Transparency

You have all seen them........ Those beautiful clear see through pages at your local scrap shop. You have all said "WOW What can I do with that" or " I love that" and thought how do I use that. This weeks page challenge at Scrapbook Fantasies gets us to use them.

I choose one that had film strip on it from the Kaiser range 'Timeless'. I backed it with a scripted paper from the same range. A little distress ink through a Prima Stencil and I was done...... Very simple, very plan, but I think that it shows the photo, as the main focus on the page...

Scrapbook Fantasies - Copic Challenge - January 2014

So along with everything else that I do, I also copic....... I love the way the colours work and blend together. While I have along way to go before I master being able to copic, this is the card I made for Paula's, green and gold Aussie challenge, at Scrapbook Fantasies. So it's not very Aussie but it's very green and gold.

The paper is some old Basic Grey and the flowers are from my Prima stash.

The best news is that she will be back this year to teach more wonderful things.

Weekly challenge - Green and White

As green is my favorite colour, this challenge should be a breeze.......... But what shade of green, there are too many to choose from. Do I go with sprays and mist or washi tape........ Oh it's so hard but in the end this is what I have come up with....... Hope you like it.

I have used lots of green ribbon from my stash, along with some Prima flowers and some resin flowers I have had put away. 

Here are some of the flowers........

Don't forget the ribbon and lace.......
