August's Travel CC in full swing with lots of great challenges to keep the girls busy!

My challenge was to scrap a travel tradition.

Is their a place you go for holidays every year?

Or is their something you always do while on holidays?

DH parents went to Pt. Lincoln for four weeks every year for about 25 years!

There is some argument as to how many years....none of them can quite remember.

I have used the 2crafty sketch and the Scrapdango Spice kit to complete my LO.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Scrapdango Reveal Part 2

Here is the sketch for August at Scrapdango created by the gorgeous Carly.

I will admit I was initally stumped with the sketch until I decided to squish it all together!
Quite happy with the end result and so very proud of my brother who followed his dream to become a pilot.
The Scrapdango kit was perect for this layout with all it's travel related bits!
Hard to see in the picture but in the top right hand corner is an embossed cloud and plane on the patterned paper.

Here is the double layout that I was required to do - I hate double's!!
I never found the journalling in the pile of scrappy stuff really was a mess so I'm not surprised (blush) Will add it later once all my monthly committments are done and dusted.
hmmmmm seems to be a tad on the small side! LOL
Catch you all later

Scrapdango Spice Kit Reveal

Well Part 1 anyway!
I am having such a great time with the Spice kit.
It is filled with papers from Little Yellow Bicycle, they are travel themed but the reverse side offers you more of scope............ there are so many possibilities!
I'm still playing and I reckon another 2 LO's and another couple of cards will see the kit all used up! Great value thats for sure.

Here is the rest of the LO I gave a sneek peak of earlier.

Live Laugh Love

And some cards

I have also completed a double LO but I have misplaced the's somewhere lost on the mound of scrappy stuff on my table!!
So will share it with you next time.
Thank you for stopping by and leaving me your kind words wonderful encouragment.

Sneek Peek!!

Just thought I'd be a little cheeky and give you all a little look at one of the LO's I have completed with my fabulous Scrapdango Spice Kit. Also had a chance to play with my new T!m Holtz Tattered Flowers Die and I also made some spiral flowers.

Dont think I have given too much away as the next layout is totally different to this vintage style one!! It's a great kit with so many wonderful possibilites. Pop back mid month for the full reveal.

August Challenge at AD

One of the members at AD, Sharon, was complaining how she had alot of stash that she hadn't used. I think we are all a little guilty of that - I know I am.

So I asked Sharon to send me a list of 10 things that she wanted to use and I chose some off the list and made that my challenge for the girls.

I must thank Sharon as I have used some techniques I have been wanting to try out for sometime.

The criteria

1. Use a large portrait style photo 5x7 or larger.
2. Journalling about your chosen subject - at this moment.
3. Chippie title plus at least 2 other types of chippie embellishments.
4. Use alcohol inks to colour your chippie. If you dont have alcohol inks use paint.
5. I want to see masking or stensiling.
6. Use CB or similar to emboss your CS/PP or chippie - you you dont have one incorporate some textured, lace or flocked cardstock.

Some of the criteria might some familar to a few of you.
This LO was going to be for Scrap the Boys......maybe next month!!
Hang on that would be THIS month!! LOL
Thanks for popping in......hope you have a creative month
