So you think you can scrap

Well time to update, had a really crazy week this week, lots of dramas and rushing about,I am looking forward to Friday more than usual as i am of to the sky tower for dinner and then of to the casino for some small time gambling,[note to self...take camera]hehe, our social club organised it so should be a fun night. Also Friday is the start of "so you think you can scrap" competition over at scrapbooking by design,If you haven't
checked it out here's where its at Just sign up and your off, theirs some great prizes to be won, it will be lots of fun and if nothing ells you will get 7 more layouts done.I am looking forward to seeing what every one does, might learn some new tricks lol.
I spent about 2 hours tonight scanning and fixing old faded photos,the one above is me and my
darling before we were married, it was so faded you could hardly make us out,some of my old photos are still great , it must have been different process or coatings they used.So i am rapt that i can at lest save them even as black and whites. OHHHH and don't forget to check out Junes kiwi jack I'm the lucky jacker and would love to see what you come up with for this jack, the layout i have chosen is from a very talented lady and I'm sure you will have fun using it, as its so versatile. Just click this link well fingers are tired now, i think this has to be my biggest post yet lol chow for now.

SB May Sketch challenge

Thanks for looking .

SBO May challenge

This months challenge at SBO was to do a layout and a card using no patterned papers.
I have used old photos here so i gave them a lift by turning one into a cube and the other one
I cut out the people. I used blue and white card, paint,ink, stamps ,bling a couple of rubons and some chip board. I really loved doing this,the chipboard snow flake made it a little hard to get a good scan. what a great challenge.I will add the card later.thanks for
looking in

Just an update, i was lucky enough to be chosen to find Junes "Jack me up" layout, and the one i chose is awesome, I love the way this lady scraps (sorry cant tell who till June) hehe my typing fingers are baned from naming the person until then.I have been doing my version tonight and will load it on the 1st, so don't forget to pop over to the" jack me up" site and have a go at your own version, theres so many things you can do with this layout.

Hope you all had a great weekend, i spent Saturday with my family down at port waikato, i

Challeng #3 @ sbe

I managed to scan a few old photos of my son, then zoomed down to harveynormans to get them printed of, being a wet day it was really busy so had to wait for some time before i got them,but here they are, made a little bigger and lightened, i have to be careful so as i don't lose the definition when i do that. Any wayzzzz this is my take on challenge 3 , to use at lest 70% of one manufacturer ( Basic Grey ). Thanks for looking :)

SBE Challenge 3

We were asked to do a layout that related to scrapbooking or why we scrap, this is my take.

NZ Dare 44

Here's my take on dare 44, i went hunting for my sons old sports photos but only found one worth using, i really need to sort out my photos and get some scanned in. Speaking of sorting!
my scrap area could use a good sort out to lol,i know i have something i wont to use on a layout but often have trouble finding it. ::NOTE TO SELF must sort soon. thanks for visiting
