Stuck?! Sketch... October #2

This is my entry for the October 15th Stuck Sketches challenge.
This month Red Earth Scrapping is one of the sponsors and set an extra challenge for RES members to use lots of pink! I think I got that covered!
Once again, a mountain of fussy cutting from me. Can you tell that I find fussy cutting very therapeutic?!!!

ARTastic challenge

This months ARTastic challenge used the painting 'A Summer Morning' by Rupert Bunny as the inspiration, and you also needed to use shades of pink, a pink rose and a white bird. As soon as I saw the painting I remembered these really old photos of Meg feeding the pelicans and knew I had to scrap them!

Scraphaven Retreat

Just got home from a wonderful weekend at the Scraphaven retreat in Bacchus Marsh.
I completed 11 Layouts (most of which I have posted on here!)
Here is the LO I created in the class taught by Donna Longhan.
Cant wait for next year's retreat (October 14-16th.... book now!)

Kaisercraft "Mix it Up" October challenge

For the October Kaisercraft challenge you had to use stripes, 2 photos, a frame and a flower. I stamped the frame with several of the kaisercraft background stamps in different colours. Certainly not my usual colours but I love the LO!

Handmade by Suzanne October sketch

I am so in love with Echo Park papers (and my beautiful niece who I sctapped using the Echo Park papers)!!! This is my entry for the Handmade by Suzanne sketch challenge.

Forever Always- October Sketch

Had a play with the Forever Always October sketch. I love these 2 photos of Tom and am happy with the match of the papers and photos!

Red Earth Scrapping- October Entries

Here are 2 entries for the October weekly challenges at red Earth Scrapping.
The first one required you to create a L/O which replicates patchwork quilting and includes at least 3 different pink elements in your creation & some form of sewing. I'm really happy how this turned out!
The 2nd challenge was to use the quote that is on my LO, as well as fabric, ribbon and pink!
Love this too (and love the girls in the photo!!)

Get Picky is a fabulous new blog that has just been launched. The first sketch challenge went live on Friday morning. Here is my entry!

Here is the first of my Stuck sketch entries for October!

Scraphappykat October sketch

This month the sketch challenge at Scraphappykat also required us to capture the colours of India. "think bright ..... golds, pinks, oranges, greens and yellows".
As soon as I read the challenge I knew I had the perfect photos of Mum and Meg from the Little India guide camp in August

Scrap the Boys- October Challenge

The Scrap the Boys October challenge was a trick or treat challenge. I chose "trick"- to scrap a trick your boy does..... and Tom's is to always take self-portraits on cameras. Every time I download the photos I find his smiling face in a photo I know I didn't take!!

Kraft it Up- October entry

Here is my entry for the October Kraft it Up challenge. This month was a sketch challenge and gave me an opportunity to scrap the first of our recent holiday photos.

The Sunbury Agricultural show was held last weekend. I entered lots of papercraft things and was thrilled to win "most successful papercraft exhibitor"!
