October pages for Lime Tart

Long time, no post - sorry about that. I received a Slice of Life kit from Lime Tart to play with for October, and here are my pages:

Firstly an insert for a "spring" feature in my Project Life album. Loving the colours and gorgeous photos of the garden in this one. Also love a chance to use up some stamps on my pages.

The back of the insert, featuring some classic photos of Kiara on the trampoline, particularly loving the one of her in the middle that looks like she is sitting on the garage roof!

And finally a Project Life style layout featuring Miss Alexa, because I got into trouble for not doing an insert with her - can't win!!
This layout will be up as a "step by step" on the Zest Blog soon, so keep an eye out for that one if you are interested.

Ahhh scrapping...how I have missed thee

Seems to be exceptionally busy times at the moment, between school holidays, working, doctor appointments, catering (oh and a little bit of housework and cooking etc) - there is not a lot of time left for bank scrap time. I did get a little bit of time last weekend to play along at the Savvy Cybercrop and managed to get three, all very different, layouts completed.

 First up was the challenge where I am sure Sar was trying to make me do something messy...well, I sure showed her! I commented that I think this may very well be the cleanest messy layout ever completed. But it has all the components required - I painted the chipboard and stamped (with very messy ink, you know) the title! Love this photo I got of everyone at Broadbeach.

And from one extreme to the other, I took lots of inspiration from the quote challenge picture and made my own quote - complete with mixed media background and my own handwriting (albeit based heavily on the picture of the quote supplied).

And finally a simple layout of Alexa with our helmet. What more could we want?!?
