Scrappin' Silhouettes Challenge 5

Today I am introduced as part of the Design Team over on Scrappin' Silhouettes. I feel extremely blessed to be on the team with so many fabulous scrappers and I am definitely the baby when it comes to experience. Please go over to Scrappin Silhouettes to see this weeks pages as created by Amanda, Molly, Stephanie and me!

This weeks sketch uses 4 photographs, which made it more challenging for me as I generally only use 1 or 2 but I really loved putting this page together.

I used photographs of the children taken earlier this month, on the beach in Sussex and it felt so 'summery' to me, though I did not use typical beach tones but went with red and blue as my key colours. I loved the Sassafrass patterned paper that is used across the middle and also as the scalloped edging and I was in stash busting mode as I used up some embellishments that have sat unopened for too long! I was pleased with the final result, called 'Spades in the Sand' and hope that you will use this great sketch to create a page of your own to share with us over at Scrappin' Silhouettes

I seriously need to take better photographs of my big old Layouts so if you have any tips on how to make them look better/more professional I am all totally open to suggestions!

I would also like to enter this LO into the 'Holiday' challenge over at Creative Craft world.


  1. That is gorgeous Furry, think I better get looking at my photos and find some that go with the layout to join in as I do like it :)

  2. love your take on the sketch, great photos and I love the colours, congratulations on getting on the team. Love Ness xx

  3. Congratulations! I love your layout :-)

    I've found that my layouts look better when I prop them up on an easel to photograph them. I picked up a cheap easel at The Works x

  4. Fluffy what a great Layout. I might have a try ;o) Cant help with photos as mine of my cards need abit of work too.
    Congratulations on your new dt place.

  5. Beautiful layout and fantastic take on the sketch! I love your choice of photo's and dp!

  6. Great take on the Silhouette Ruth! It's great to be working with you :)

    To take my photos i usually tack the LO to a wall near a window and take it square on or lay it on the floor in the garden and stand directly over it. I struggle with photographing pages too!

  7. Gorgeous page, congrats on your new DT place. Thanks for joining us at Creative Craft World & good luck.
