August 1,2,3 Challenge

I have really been happy with all the challenges this month, and the 1,2,3 challenge for August is:
Word: What
Colour: Black
Technique: Multi photos

Here is my layout, using some rather amusing photos of Kiara when I was just wanting to get ONE normal photo!

August Kraft it Up

Can be found here and is based on this sketch from Page Maps

and here is what I managed to do with it (after flipping the sketch to suit my photos).  I love the way this one has turned out, helps I think when I am using these gorgeous photos of Alexa!

August White with One

The White with One challenge for August is white + purple + doodling (insert shudder here!)...purple and doodling?  Luckily Kiara's favourite colour is purple and she is always at me to use this or that purple paper or embellishment on her pages!

And there is doodling on there, I swear!  It hasn't come up in the photo, but there is doodling around the edge of the white tag - very, very subtle (the best way for doodling to be, really!).

August Scrap the Girls

The Scrap the Girls challenge for August is to use this quote:
"Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it"
and here is my entry:

He he he, such great photos of Alexa after she had emptied the bottom shelf of the pantry!  There is a very good reason that there is only tins stored here!

A perfect day is...

This was the title/journalling prompt for August's Once Upon A Sketch challenge, and here is my take on it:

Another photo from Alexa's 5th birthday, and it sure was a perfect day for her!
