What a Scrappy Life

A Busy Sunday

I love to scrap, I love paper, buttons, embellishments, punches, stamps , OK just about everything that goes into being creative.

So Why, oh why can't I think of titles for my layouts, I just keep on coming up with the same thing, so consequently I have scrapped this weekend and some of the layouts don't have a title, but hey I'm OK with that. Who says that a layout needs a title? why can't you just produce a layout without a title and be done. So unless I can come up with a title for these before they go into my albums, then they will be left has they are.

This weekend was the CyberCrop over on UKS, I didn't join in the fun, but did download a few of the layouts to do at my leisure.

This layout is based on Class designs by Sarah Youde for the Cybercrop, using Scrapagogo April 2010 kit, one of my crafting objectives is to learn to knit properly, I can knit scraves, as long as they are only knit one, purl one - LOL, but anything out of this 'safety net' I just can't do. I would love to go to a knitting class or something along those lines and learn how to do it. Who knows maybe this will be a new learning techique for this year.

This is a sketch challenge from Sarah Cards, again using Scrapagogo April 2010 kit.

This photo was taken by Sue at the Retreat, and you know that felling you get when you are really happy or excited and all you want to do is 'Scream' well that just summed up what I felt like that weekend.

Scrapagogo March 2010 Kit

And I still on my quest to use up my older stash, so out came the cardstock, you know the one that you save because its lovely. I found this Bazzill Dotted Swiss Scalloped Cardstock recently, actually got about 20 sheets of it in various colours, so will be using it up over the coming weeks.

This layout with me and James at Botanical Gardens last week and using the lovely Crate Paper - Brook Collection, with an added Prima flower and bird/branch chipboard from American Craft (something I had for a while - but Rachel reminded me of them when I read her blog)

This is using my lovely Kraft paper, which I'm running out off, but being on 'another' serious stash diet, I won't be getting anymore for a while, and using the lovely October Afternoon Thrift Shop, with some chipboard from Cosmo Cricket - Earth Love

Thanks for stopping by, back later with my GoGo Retreat Mini Book.
