Last Layouts of 2011!

Hi there!

I want to share my last three layouts of 2011. My very last one is this one from the
Basic Grey blog. This is the sketch.

And this is my layout. It's the "East Side Gallery", which is a 1.3km stretch of the Berlin Wall covered with paintings from international artists. We were in a hurry, so we didn't get to walk all along it, but I would have loved to! I used the "Oliver" collection by Basic Grey, as well as label stickers from the "Basic White" collection and ribbon from the "Mellow" line. I added a bit of inked grunge board as well as chipboard embellies.

Then there's this one by a sketch from Cherie Averill from Sassy Lil' Sketches. It was done for a challenge at
Scrapbooking from the Inside Out. I used an older line of K & Company for this one.

Finally, this is a companion page to one I did earlier, about our interaction with dolphins when we went down south last winter. It's based on this sketch from WeScrap. I used Basic Grey's "Marrakesh" line. Love the orange and the blue together!

Well, hope you had a great 2011, and wishing you an even better 2012!


Challenge #60 at Scrap Your Crap!


Challenge #60 is up at
Scrap Your Crap and it's all about buttons! I'm sure pretty much everybody has a whole bunch of buttons in their stash... This is your chance to use some up!

Here's my layout. It's a companion page to one I did earlier about the biplane ride we took over Seattle in the summer of 2010. It was so much fun! The original layout was based on a sketch by Cherie Averill from
Sassy Lil' Sketches. I threaded buttons and "glue dotted" them to the ends of ribbons of different lengths to create sort of a banner. I love the little touch that it adds.

Please go visit the
blog to see all the different ways to use buttons that the rest of the team came up with! They're fabulous! I hope you'll join us too! You know you've got buttons just sitting there waiting to be used!

Happy scrapping!


Just a Quick Post!

Hi there!

Just a quick post to share my newest LO! I entered the new magazine
Scrap365's sketch challenge. This is the sketch for December.

This is what I did with it. The title means "Adventure in the Land of the Whales". It's a layout about a camping trip that my niece and I took back in 2003 where we went whale watching, sea kayaking, and where we could see whales swim by our campsite! We had tons of fun! I used a collection pack of Sassafras Lass "Indie Girl" that I had never touched yet!

If you want to join in the sketch challenge, you have until December 16th to upload your creation!

Happy scrapping!
