More scrapbooking!

I am so grateful for Shimelle and her challenges for NSD last week, I loved them all and have been trying to find time to create pages to fit them all! My attempt at Challenge 1 was posted earlier in the week (using patterned paper as a background).

Here is my take on Challenge 2, create a triangle of embellishments

I think this is the first LO I have ever made of just me! Last October the children were playing in the leaves and I was taking photos, then I decided to play too so I gave hubby the camera and he snapped a couple of me that I actually liked!! I do love the Autumn, the colours of the changing leaves are beautiful and it is one of my favourite times to take a walk in the woods.

Challenge 3 is adding a border between two photos and I chose 2, taken the same day as the Autumn ones of me.

The border is very simple from MME it is adhesive felt, the scalloped edge on the L is punched out circles, DD hand made the paper flowers for me after I showed her how and I added buttons cut with my fab Die-namics die. I have slightly changed the title and added the journalling but cannot show you as it has some personal info.

Now do I have time to fit in Challenges 4 & 5 before the end of the weekend??!!!


  1. It's nice to see more of you :)

  2. How nice to see you on a page! We all seem to forget to scrap ourselves, unless someone reminds us... That is a fun page - you look very happy in the photos.
    I love the funny expressions on the girls' faces on the second page. The border is lovely.

  3. it's not very often we have photo's of us to scrap, i'm normally behind the camera. Great layouts :)

  4. Love that first one....what great photos.

  5. Nice to see your playful side!

  6. Fab layouts, I like the idea of using the circles as a scalloped edge - great idea :)

  7. How lovely to see you! And what fab mail you've been receiving - enjoy the book :)
