Scrap happy!

This week on UKS we were asked to 
Firstly - Scraplift a LO from UKS gallery 

and then Select one thing from each of the following...

Main colour - Green / Blue / Yellow / Brown / Purple
Theme - Spring / May / Nature / New beginnings 
Embellishment - Ribbon / Washi Tape / Buttons / Stickers / Handmade / Fibres
Technique - Stamping / Die cutting or Punches / Embossing / Tearing 

I scraplifted Laura Godfrey, went for a brown colour scheme, May theme, Washi tape and I used an embossed stamp from the HP studios punched into a circle shape...

I added glittery gold stars by Studio Calico and this fits the Sketch and Scrap 2nd birthday challenge set by DY member Kerry on her blog to use glitter/sparkle.

Each month I try and join in with Miniowner's sketch challenge

and I combined it with another of Sketch n Scrap's birthday challenges (I have loved doing these challenges this month!) from Um blog de Scrapbook using 2 of everything.....2 bits of doily. 2 lots of enamel dots, 2 layers of matting, 2 photos, 2 word title, 2 banners, 2 mists used, 2 lines of journalling, 2 cloud stamps and just 2 colours used and blue


  1. Oh that's a super page - I love the bits of doily, I'm never too sure what to do with them. Fab colours to compliment those lovely photos. Thank you for joining in my sketch challenge.

  2. I love this page, especially the size of the photos and the embellie gathering in the upper left corner.

  3. They're both fabulous, and I do love your take on the challenges.

  4. Wow! Great layouts!!!!! Thank you for participating in this challenge.

  5. How serene are those pictures on your mountain view layout?!! LOVE soft color palette so fitting for your pictures! Thanks for joining us at Sketch N Scrap!

  6. Love the idea of collecting stamps at HPS ... I'd be elbowing the kids out of the way to get mine LOL
    Fab pages Ruth - love the touches of gold

  7. I especially like your top page - leaving the centre in the 'o' really made my eye notice it and then follow round the page, noticing all the other circle shapes. I always admire how much scrapping you fit in
