Scrapbook Generation iNSD Challenge #5

Challenge 5 at Scrapbook Generation for iNSD was to use a sketch they provided to make a layout.

Please excuse the no-photos in this layout - we no longer have a photo processing place here that I am happy with anymore so I have to order my prints online, and I don't tend to keep a pile of to-scrapbook prints. I have photos picked for this layout, they are of my 3 year old and her Dad on our water slide earlier in the year. And to be honest, even if they had been printed I wouldn't be able to show them as I promised my partner that I wouldn't put them on the internet! I will be putting 3 6x4 vertical prints in the large white space, and the 6x4 block on the left with me for the journaling.

Also, I apologise for the bad photo of the layout, our weather has turned pretty bad today and the light isn't very good for this. The colours in the close-up image are more true-to-life than the full pages.

Scrapbook Generation iNSD Challenges 2&4

Two posts in the same week? No you're not seeing things :) I've just been trying to do as many iNSD challenges as I can!

This one was for Scrapbook Generations list of challenges. Challenge 2 was to use Project Life type materials on a traditional page. I have used PL cards from the Baby for Her kit for the journaling cards, and I also cut the frame the title is on and the other two yellow half ones from the cards from the same collection.

Challenge 4 was all about journaling. I asked my 3 and a half year old daughter some questions and recorded her answers to those. 

One thing I'm proud of with this layout - I didn't use a stitch of patterned paper!

Mercy Tiara's Scrapbooking Challenge

Just wanted to share my layout for Mercy Tiara's Challenge over on YouTube. If you haven't checked out her scrapbooking process vids, you really should! I'm rather addicted to them!

There were 3 topics to choose from, and I chose how I started scrapbooking. The journaling is in pencil at the moment as I couldn't find a pen with a small enough tip for the teeny lines I was writing on. I'll get that written in pen asap.

I've also used a sketch from a Scrapbook Generation sketch book and replaced the photo spot with my journaling.
