Twice in one month??!!?

Goodness! I'm back!

Twice in one month!

You best sit down as your legs are bound to be weak with the shock.

I guess the Scrap Around The World challenge so appealed to me, I had to do another layout :)

Here's a link to the June Mood Board over there at SATW


This time I took my inspiration from the LOVE image. But the yellow also features again.

I should really tell you what products I used, but I did my back in this morning, so I am exiled from my craft room. It will have to remain a mystery.

Till next time :)

Scrap Around The World (again)

It is the challenges that bring me back to my blog. I wish I had time to post here all the time. To tell you hilarious stories of my riotous family. All the weird and wonderful things I get up to. (Or rather our mundane humdrum life?)

But sadly, no. Not time for fun like that.

That said, I gave myself a few hours off tonight and decided to participate in this months Scrap Around the World challenge.

I normally HATE yellow, but as fate would have it my daughter has just gotten the present of a black and yellow dress and had her photo taken on Saturday in front of a black and yellow garden at this years Bloom in the Phoenix Park. I felt the scrappyverse was trying to tell me something.

So, here we are - the mood board


And my take on it - 

I hope you like it :)

See you next month I imagine!

In The Mood (Board)

This is my first post of 2014. 

The 8th of April. Hard to believe. 

But I haven't been crafting. Not that I didn't want to, but I've been writing a book. It's a bucket list sorta thing. Maybe this book will bring me fame and riches, or maybe it'll sit in a drawer gathering dust forever more, I don't know. But I'm glad I'm doing it. The only downside is not having as much time for my other interests. 

I made a decision this week to step back a little from character formations and plot arcs and just do a bit of scrapping. I've been following the Scrap Around The World blog on Facebook and each month I've wanted to take part in their challenge. This month, I decide to just do it.


Here is the mood board they created this month from which we challengers are to draw inspiration. And as the blog isn't a specifically colour challenge blog, you can take your inspiration from any part of the board. As it turned out though, the colours happen to be complete faves of mine, so my layout ended up taking that as its inspiration.

I was in a mixed media mood when I sat down to put the layout together. I used to worry about what would happen if the scrapbooking industry declined to such an extent that we couldn't get our lovely patterned papers anymore (I know, over-dramatic much?!?) But for the last 12 months or so, at least half my layouts - like this one - are patterned paper free. I just messed about with my paints and pastes and inks.

So, here it is in all its glory :)

There you go. I am very happy with my page and I'm looking forward to next months mood board... or you know, I may even do another from this month's.

See you next time :)
