If I had more time I might be able to complete all the wonderful scrapbooking challenges out there. Get Creative is one such challenge site I really like with a nice mix of sketch and inspiration for both cards and layouts. With four challenges a month I always struggle to keep up. I'd love to do all four but realistically I might manage two or sometimes three - and that's OK. I do what I can. January is a difficult month for those of us in Australia with school aged children as we are always running around after them during the holidays. I'm hopeful February will give me that elusive extra hour.
The first layout I did was for the joint St Valentine challenge Get Creative is having with Scrap and Grab Challenge blog. This one is all about LOVE of course !!
My son dearly loves his Grandmother - she's the last of the Grand's and therefore all the more precious to us all. I try to get a photo of her each time she visits. This picture is from a few years ago but I think captures that special bond.
Second layout was based on this sketch ...
I thought I'd use a fun loving photo from my yet to scrap stash - this one shows my kids having a tickle fight in bed one morning. From the look on his face I'd say that my daughter was winning!
The final challenge was a cute card sketch ...
Since Valentine's Day is coming up I thought I'd be prepared :)
