Scrap Around the World January Challenge

Hi there, back again!
I decided to have a crack at the Scrap Around the World Challenge this month, even though I'm completely intimidated by the calibre of all the entries - there are some absolutely AMAZING pages entered! Go and check them out! So inspiring!!
I was really taken by the mood board this month... so many beautiful elements to be inspired by:
I was particularly inspired by the beach, the bicycle, the pastel colours of the cups and the floral wall paper and the purple flowers in the basket and on the table.  I also used some gauze, as a simile to the net holding the glass balls on the mood board.
Here is my take on the challenge:
You still have just over a day to enter, so why not have a go!
Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo

Kraft It Up January Challenge

Hi! Welcome!
Just wanted to share my layout for the KIU January Challenge, and a few close ups.
The challenge is based on this sketch:
... plus the extra criteria of:
1. washi or similar;
2. summer themed photo; and
3. a number.
I used a photo of my kids in summer clothes, including their hats, which was taken at the beginning of summer; washi tape along the top and bottom of the layout; and the number 401 in the title, which refers to the amount of photos I had to take during this shoot of the kids to get a few decent shots!
Without further ado, here is my page, and the close ups:

If you haven't already done this challenge, why not give it a go?
Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo

January Challenges

Hello there,
So, I had the opportunity to get some scrapping done yesterday, which was just divine.  I got two challenges done for January, and can't wait to get stuck in to more!
Here is the page I did for Scrap the Girls:
This is the great sketch by Amanda Hartmann, that we need to base our page on for this challenge.  I flipped it to suit the background paper I wanted to use.
The next layout I completed is this one, for the 123 Challenge.  The challenge was to use Feathers, Orange and the word "Live".  I sketched my feathers for the background and the embellie at the bottom right hand of the photo is made of feathers.
Right, I'm off to check out another challenge!  Happy scrapping :)
Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo
