National Scrapbooking Day

Yes I know it was on Saturday, but I've been a bit slow off the mark. I have been taking full advantage of the lovely weather to give my garden some attention and to catch up with all the washing. Today looks like its going to be more of the same, so after a trip to the supermarket and another hour in the garden I am promising to catch up on some of the challenges that were set over on Scrap Whispers. I have also decided I have too much 'stuff' in my drawers and cupboards, so I have slowly been going through them and de-cluttering, believe me its very liberating. In doing this I have rediscovered some old photos, so what better incentive is there to scrap?
This is the page I made for the first challenge, the theme to all the challenges is fairy tales. This one is based on the tower that Rapunzel lived in. A starting point of a tower made from layers of paper pieces was set for everybody then we just had to see where it took us. Utilising the newly discovered photos from the 80's this is where I ended up.

Vine Tutorial

On Monday morning I took part in the UKScrappers blog hop, who would have predicted the response to the flowers I had made for the layout. In particular the rose vine. I was flabbergasted, but promised I would let everybody know how I had done it. If anybody does make one of these vines please could you credit me and if posted in a blog I would appreciate a link back to me.
I was absolutely inspired by the gorgeous Prima vines, I have purchased many but due to the cost they remain in my stash, I am too frightened to use them because they are not cheap. They fall into the category of  'waiting for a special projrect'. This made me challenge myself to see if i could make something similar.

Over the last few years sources one of my favourite sources of inspiration and a 'go to' for getting your creativity going again has become Pinterest. I think I use it almost as much as google. I recently saw this layout and knew I wanted to lift it. Here is the result

I loved its simplicity and I was able to use a photo that is almost 30 years old. See those scrabble type tiles, Ive had them years and was happy I could use some on here.

Birthday Cards for Men

Cards for men really are quite difficult, so when I find a colour combination that isn't just blue and can work for men I use it. One of my favourite combinations is a bright blue, bright red and white. I think its modern and bright. Over the last weekend I made a few cards with this colour scheme, those of you who visit me regularly will also know I like simple. We have worked our way through all the previous cards I made for the boys at work so another batch was called for beginning with this one.
