Way back in 2008........

October 2008 it was, I bought some online classes called Octoberfest by Jen Hall. Well, I only got so far in doing them and did not complete them all so whilst my mojo has been holidaying lately, I decided to continue scrapping but just use Jen's wonderful classes to perhaps inspire me to get back excited about my own scrapping.
Here are almost the last of the classes done now.........

The most paint I have ever used on a layout - Octoberfest #31. The lovely doodled tags and embellishments on the pages from Octoberfest were all kindly drawn by Jen and delivered to us to use. I just wish I was as confident in the doodling world as she is.

#30 A layout from Jaimie Emmerton based on using a cluster. This is another one of my areas where I lack expertise but I think I have managed to do an okay job with it. It certainly doesn't look as good as the example but it works for me......

#28 - A layout I loved being a boy one..... I added an extra photo to the example layout and where Jen…

Christmas cards.....

Image
For a few days now I have been busy working on Christmas cards again. I needed to get stuck into them as my next couple of months are busy ones as we head into the Christmas season.

Now some of these are a little average.... but I have been looking at the same stickers and card toppers for the past few years trying to put them to good use as I am determined to make use of them and not throw them out. I have a heap of kiddy, shiny metallic stickers of stockings and baubles and things too which I bought for a playgroup christmas activity and we never used all the stickers so am getting rid of those too.

There is just a few of Fab's challenges included and the rest are my "using up my stash" challenge to myself.


This is similar to one of my previous ones but my card class ladies wanted to do it so as I don't have enough rhinestone flourishes for a class of them, I recreated the effect using an Autumn Leaves flourish stamp and kindyglitz. Some Fiskars border punches, threa…

August DT kit.....

Image
I had some lovely My Mind's Eye papers to play with in my DT kit for August which was quite different to the challenge that I had with the template for July.


I made some cards and two layouts which also use some Bella shapes and alpha from the kit provided.

The August Cybercrop at Scrap of Difference had a theme of "Blast from the Past". This enabled us to use not only vintage photos but any photos that haunted us... from our past, our children's past or catching up with old friends etc.

This was the sketch challenge from Belinda that I rotated to use this gorgeous photo of Keelan and Ethan in the bath at our Perth townhouse in 2001. Weren't they just cute little boys?..... Whatever happened to those little fellas?

Jo challenged us with the colours of brown and lilac which made me go for a hunt..... brown was okay but the lilac came from some old packs of Me and my big ideas papers that I had from when I first started scrapbooking. The photos are of my Mum in her …
