Sometimes when we miss a deadline its for a good reason.

Ok so this layout WAS intended for a sketch comp, but would you believe I missed the deadline by about a minute ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. That is what I get for being a fuss pot and staring at a layout for far too long and tinkering tinkering with it.

So instead this layout I submit for Sawyers Place.

So here is my Layout simple and subtle but stilll a good end result I think.


Paper Inkling paper. Sawyers Place horizontal washi tape. Sawyers place Rockstar epoxy sticker, star epoxy Sawyers place. Purple Pumpkin Rockstar Flair Button.

A friend with a camera and lots of washi!!

I bring to you yet another layout FULL of washi. Lots and lots of Washi in fact no Pattern Paper AT ALL.

This month not including my ummmmm washi additction. My latest liking is angles, lots and lots of angles. Whether it be a photo on a angle, paper on a angle or whatever it might be. So I thought I would try it for myself and while I was at it incorporate my favourite Washi tape to date.

Sawyers Place Blue Cogs, I love, love, love this washi tape soooo much. It goes perfect with  just about any boy layout especially a tween ager. Sawyers Place can be found at

Scrap the Boys November Challenge

Ok so at first I thought this challenge was going to be easy.

BUT I found this color pallette harder to play with then I thought. To the point I dragged my feet for a week. BUT in the end it all came together and I was happy with the result.

Scrap the Boys is something which I find more then comfortable with as living in my house are my four children aged between 11 and 2 and my hubby. Me the ONLY girl LOL

So here is my entry for Scrap the Boys for November.

Sawyers Place Tribal washi and script washi, Purple Pumpkin script button, Halo charms and pebble. Echo Park paper collection This and That Charming.

November Purple Pumpkin Sketch Competition

As every scrapper knows we all go through stages and my stage at this moment in time appears to be sketch competitions. Best ever mojo creator I have found sometimes you just need a starting point to get the creativness flowing and a deadl line is even better because you are working towards a completion time.

The thing I like most about sketch comps is the finish product.

I love looking at individual entries and seeing how different they are all are. Nothing better. So many different styles, different takes, different skill levels it amazes me each and every time.
