October Challenges

I'm getting the jump on my favorite challenge sites this month and have already completed my Kraft it up layout and Scrap the girls.

Kraft it up! October Challenge - create a layout using a monochromatic, minimalist or vintage/romantic/shabby chic style

In contrast to my usual style I have opted for a minimalist layout.

go Blues no.12

I love this footy photo of my son and thought it deserved pride of place, I was extra proud of him this game. 

The journalling reads:

It was a tough game by all accounts. 
Connor kicked a behind in the first quarter but Yarragon were playing at home and leading by 5 goals at 3/4 time. 
Then the Blues fought back to lead by 3 goals. 
In full back Connor smothered a certain goal. The final siren sounds - the Warragul Blues have won! 
For his fantastic efforts, and possibly saving the match Connor wins the coaches award - well done.

Scrap the girls October Challenge - create a layout with the word "love" in the title and use distressing


I love that you love to snuggle, 1 month old November 2003

I am really loving the smaller page size, and have used my new typewriter on just about all of my layouts lately.

I have so few photos of Savannah when she was a little baby, in the dawn of digital photos we lost so many pictures by not backing up files, so this photo is very precious.

So glad I now have this Sizzix die, the flowers are so cute! I distressed the edges of my page and the little kraft leaves I cut. 

Plus, all of the inking was with Tim Holtz distress ink!
