Artful Delight - What a catch!


My second layout of this month is using photographs from a trip to Mirror Lake last year. I used this month's sketch from Boys Rule:


and the scrapbooking kit:


I picked some of the plainer papers for the background - adding stitching and punching details for interest. The badge and big alphas are from the kit.


I also added the chalkboard banner pieces from the kit.


I would love to see you over on the Artful Delight blog, joining in with this month's challenge! There is a card sketch too!

Until next week......happy scrapping! :)

Artful Delight - Eat my Bubbles!


My first layout of this month shows a photo of my daughter from the recent State finals. She was asked to swim in the 200m freestyle, the 200m medley and the 400m freestyle relays for her swimming club. We were so proud! She had a ball, and the girls placed really well. I used the Artful Delight sketch of the month:


and the scrapbooking kit:


I used a lace circle background piece which I cut using my silhouette and then added extra hand stitching for more bubbles.


I added a decorative bag behind the photograph for hidden journalling, along with a banner sticker and camera metal paper clip from the kit.


For the title, I used my Silhouette again - this is something that is said amongst all the swimmers at swim meets! 


I would love to see you over on the Artful Delight blog, joining in with this month's challenge! There is a card sketch too!

Until next week......happy scrapping! :)

There is a mixture of Fancy Pants 'Memories Captured', Crate Paper 'The Pier', Pebbles 'Lakeside' and coordinating Bazzill cardstock. There are SO many fun embellishments in these kits too! 

Head on over to the Artful Delights blog for more details and to pick up your very own kit - it is well worth it! Check out this month's sketches and join in the challenge too!
