The Scraproom Blog - Freaky Fast Friday - I love you Nannie

Alex has always loved building and making things with brick - be them building ones or lego.  One sleepover at Nannie's he got all the building bricks out and made a message for Nannie.
Loved this idea from last month, so thought I'd give it ago this month too..

Challenge closes 31st October 2017.  Photos of layouts are actually uploaded to their facebook group.


Stuck? Sketch Challenge - Duxford

The sketch over at Stuck? was perfect for some photos of the family visit to Duxford Air Museum.

Lottie Loves Paper and Community Kits Sketch Challenge - Snug as a Bug

I'm a member of the FB group "Lottie loves Paper and Community Kits" and I'm entering this layout of Alex and Cassie into one of their sketch challenges this month.

No automatic alt text available.
They have quite a few, that all close at the end of October.


Sketch n Scrap #138 - Bronze Award

I'm still soooooooo behind with my layouts of the kids, but I managed to use the sketch over at Sketch n Scrap for Nicholas being presented with his Scouting Bronze Award a couple of years ago by the District Commissioner at Barleylands in Billericay.

I didn't use the vertical strip as it would have distracted from the photos, but I'm pleased with the end result.

Challenge closes at the end of October.


GoGoGetaway October Challenge - Sailing Away

The Scrapbooking retreats that Mum and I sometimes go on are run by GoGo and their FB challenge this month is to be inspired by different elements.

My biggest challenge on this one was using watercolours.. not really my thing, but I gave it a go!

I was really pleased how the page came out and I'm loving my piece of rope!

Challenge can be found on GoGo's FB page..

Let's Get Sketchy October 1 Challenge - Don't Just Fly, Soar!

Sneaked in a wee bit of scrappin' this morning at Mum's whereby I managed to get this layout completed of Alexander and Cassandra at Scouts Renewal of Promise a few years ago.
I was particularly pleased that I managed to use a patterned paper for the entire background too..
This is the sketch I worked to.

Challenge closes 30th October, so plenty of time to enter.
