Park Guell

Had to go digi again this week for the UKS Weekly Challenge. It's just easier like this, what with the clutter everywhere and no space to do anything crafty.

Me, on my birthday in Barcelona last year.

Another layout for a UKS weekly challenge. I've used a picture from my trip to Carreg Cennen Castle in Wales at the weekend. There was a small cave underneath the castle and right at the end of the passage was this tiny pool of water.

Earth Tones - done
Water Theme - done
Book Title - done
I couldn't really do hidden journalling on a digital layout, so I had to leave that part out.

A digitalfor the current UKS weekly challenge:

Stamping, random alphas in the title, contrasting colours and 1 of something (a flower). All done.

I took this picture deliberately so I could eventually scrap it, forward planning! ;)

This is something I've been planning on doing for a while. Creating a layout using just Freebies that I've collected from Scrap Girls over the months. Then I realised that I didn't have an alpha - so the title is the latest one by Linda Walton.

Yep - another picture of me as a little person! I wandered round a lot with just these boots on. They actually belonged to my large Paddington Bear! I loved those boots.

Wisbech - Brewery Garden

No particular reason for this layout, apart from wanting to use this gorgeous collab kit. :)

The latest collab kit from Vicki Parker and Sara (Sweet Blossom Designs) is Let it Rock, which is perfect for gig photos. This one is my first one, Nerina Pallot at the Roundhouse in Camden.

Something Kinda Oooh...

Made this for the current weekly challenge! :) We had to scrap something that we're addicted to, and, well... I can't help this particular addiction. As you can see, I'm addicted to Shakespeare. *cough*

Also had to include the colour blue, a flower (used faded overlays because they didn't really go with the LO, but they're there!) and to use a song title or lyrics. This is the title of a Girls Aloud song - they're also a bit of an addiction.

Snap & Scrap

A few days ago I joined up with Snap & Scrap so I'd have somewhere to play with my digi layouts and learn some new skills. Sadly, two days after joining they announce that they're closing. :( Anyway, here's a bunch of digitals that I did for Challenges over there:

Me stealing peas!

My second attempt at using a pre-made digi-template. An odd technique, but fun in its own way.

Oodles of Doodles by Vicki Parker.

This one was a colour challenge, so I tried to use as many of my own home-made bits and pieces as I could. Throwing in some old brushes for good measure.

This is me in my car as a baby.

Catch Up - Koln 2007

Our favourite place to eat near the Rhine. It had fabulous food (mmm, sausages and sauerkraut!) and beautiful beer. Rather than finding a new place to go each night, we just kept going back there - and why not?!

A mug of gluhwein on the floating Christmas market.

Mummy & Me!

Made this for a weekly challenge:

Create a LO either in black and white or a using a rainbow of colour
Create a LO that celebrates womanhood - My mother and me!
Use at least one distressing technique - distressed papers
Use 5 of something on your LO - five black flowers

I don't have many rainbow papers, so I went the black and white route. That led me to go down the digi route. Not to mention the fact that I'm trying to study a lot more at the moment, that also makes digi-ing a lot easier than getting all my scraps out over my textbooks.
