More 2013 Project Life...

A few more select pages to finish off 2013 Project Life. I have done my cover and first week for 2014 and am loving some new colours and cards.

I just love my 2013 Project Life album, my favourite so far. Think I may finally have worked out what I like and what is actually achievable. Bring on 2014!

January Full Tart

The January Full Tart from Lime Tart is simply gorgeous, I think I have said every time I get a new kit that it is my favourite so far - and I think I may have said it again with this one!
Unfortunately Lime Tart is closing it's doors at the end of January, so get in quick if you want to get yourselves one of these fantastic kits.

I have a page up on the Zest Blog today using the January Full Tart. Check out the blog for more details.

A 2013 Project Life round up

So...it seems that the blogging of the Project Life pages has been slack. Very slack. Instead of bombarding the blog with every single page since I last had a catch up (which seems to be September/October) I am going to simply show my few favourites of the last couple of months of 2013 in a couple of different posts over the next few days. My album is finished now, easily fitting into one Seafoam binder which is fabulous.

Here we go! Starting with our holiday to the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland. I love these pages, great memories here:

Some Mystical scrapping

Nothing better to do than spend time in the bank scrapping (as you can imagine, the house is immaculate, washing up to date, refrigerator full etc etc). Here are some more from the last couple of days from the Mystical travel themed cyber crop.

 Got a little bit messy with this one, and crooked - Just look at that texture paste action!

And back to regular transmission with some clean lines, although there are some angles in there. Loving the little paper plane stamp from Kellie Stamps on this one.

Sketchabilities sketch number 106

It's been a while since I played at Sketchabilities, too, but I just love what Karan has done with the sketches lately so armed with the bunch of new photos taken of the girls the other day in the back yard it just had to be done! This one is based on Sketch #106:

White with...TANGERINE!

I don't very often participate in the challenges at White with One as I find it too hard! This month's challenge is to use White with Tangerine and I just happened to have a spot of orange in my pile so I gave it a go.

Still not too sure, needs some more colours I think!!

Jan sketch from Scrap Friends

So...did anyone think that maybe we have spent more time in the bank in the past few days than we have in the past few months?!? Loving having some time to scrap for no particular reason, using whatever I want, scrapping whoever I want.

And..I struggled to find favourites at all for 2013, and think I might just have TWO already for 2014! Here is one, based on the January sketch at Scrap Friends.

Here is the sketch:

Kraft It Up for January 14

Is so completely "ME" that I just had to do it. It is based on a sketch and here is what I came up with:

I followed the layout of the sketch fairly closely, but instead of smaller photos just used one 6x4" of the girls I took during out "photoshoot" yesterday. Stay tuned for lots more of these kind of photos!

Once Upon A...Sketch for January '14

Ahh, holidays and quiet days at home mean more time spent in the bank. And what better time to actually do some scrapping for all the challenges around about. Here is my entry for the January challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch which is based on their sketch and journalling about "lessons learnt". I couldn't go past this pic of the girls completing their homework one night and a great quote by Nelson Mandela.

Favourite layouts for 2013

Last year when I did this I loaded 12 favourites for 2012...however, I don't think I will come up with 13 for 2013. So I will not put a number on it at the start and see how we go - in no particular order!
