Scrapjacked- March

For this month's Aussie Scrapjacked I once again selected Vicki's LO to scrap lift. I was inspired by the die cut paper she used, the title on its side and the spray of flowers!

This is Vicki's LO that I scrapjacked!

Kraft it Up- March

In honour of our 16th Wedding anniversary I decided to scrap a photo of Steve and I on our wedding day for the March Kraft it Up challenge. You had to use the quote 'there is no greater gift than today", and I thought that was a perfect quote for the photo! I used some Fancy Pants Vintage Valentine papers that are printed on Kraft!

Scrap the Girls- March 2011

This month's Scrap the Girls challenge required you to use one of the "She" quotes by Kobi Yamada as the title & inspiration for the LO. I selected "She colored her thoughts with only the brightest hues" which is so very true for Meg- and used lots of bright colours and fussy cutting (as always!)

Happily Exhausted!

Wow- what a huge day! Just home from teaching at Scraphaven. Taught 2 LOs this morning and repeated the class again tonight. I had the most people I have ever had book in for one of my classes- and it was lovely to meet some new ladies tonight as well as my highly valued regulars!
These are the 2 classes we did! The "Girl's best friend" was the original class I planned, and then the "Big things grow" class was added at the request of lots of people who wanted to do a "boy" layout!

ARTastic challenge- March 2011

This month's ARTastic challenge was inspired by the painting "The Circus Horse" by Marc Chagall. For bonus points you had to use bright colours, and animal, at least 3 circles and a horse.

Crafty Sketches- March 2011

This morning I scrapped at Scraphaven and created this Layout using the March Crafty Sketches sketch.
Loved using all the gorgeous Echo Park "Life is good" papers!
This is the sketch the LO is based on- I turned it on its side to suit the orientation of the photos!
