June white with 1

This months white with 1 challenge was the gorgeous Biscay Bay. A gorgeous Blue colour.
I lived this colour, and really enjoyed working with my new distress inks to make this layout :)

My gorgeous boys Gremlin and Buddy. (See post "meet the family" to understand lol)
Thanks for looking and happy scrapping

Sassy June mood board

So this months sassy scrapper mood board was gorgeous.
I love this quote, and the watercolour feel of this board. That as well as the text type and the colours made me think of the inspire project life kit. So that's what I used :)

I cut up some PL cards (gasp, yes) and used my gelatos to make a water colour background and cut some hearts from more cards. I love the soft colors of this layout.
Thanks for looking and happy scrapping.

Meet the family...

I have realised, in my lasts few posts I have made reference to my 2 boys and my man child husband. They feature a lot  in my scrapbooking so I thought I would introduce you to them .

First up- the man child husband :) he is without a doubt my biggest child and requires the most supervision. Yes that's him peeking out of the hammock.

Next we have Master 7. 
Most commonly referred to as Buddy. He got that nickname from his little brother. Turns out we must have said it a few times and he picked up on it, and now calls him that.
Yep- asleep at the dinner table.
And finally we have Master 3.
ALWAYS referred to as Gremlin! He got that nickname due to its literal meaning- "A small mischievous monster with sharp teeth". When he was little he actually took bites out of his brothers thongs.
He is my monster, my cheeky monkey.
Charming aren't they.
In case you missed it- they are an entertaining bunch. Never dull and always full of adventure. 

Thanks for stopping by

Scrap the boys June challenge

I love challenges. It's great for inspiration,
Gets the mojo flowing.
Thai months challenge from the scrap the boys blog was a sketch challenge.
This is the sketch.
This is my take on the sketch...
Scrap the boys is always one of my favourite challenge blogs. With 2 boys, a man child husband, and 2 nephews- I'm never short of photos to suit any challenge. This one happens to be my youngest nephew Jax on his first birthday. 
Happy scrapping

D-lish scraps June Challenge.

This is my first challenge entry for the month of June.
I started with the mood board from
Dlish scraps. 

I just loved these colours, and when I saw this pic I knew it would work perfect. 
This is a picture of my youngest playing in the bushes one afternoon. The photo had a mega bright spot due to the angle of the sunshine when I took it but I loved it so much I just went with it. 
The kaisercraft shine bright collection was perfect for this mood board in every way, even down to the script don't lol. I loved it.
