2006


I have been delving into our reasonable near past and have picked out a few photos from 2006 to scrap. Back then, Matt had short hair, Meaghan was happy to pose for photos and Henry had big blonde curls.

And there has been plenty of inspirational sketches to choose from this week - loving that I am back into scrapping again!!  How could I resist The Paper Variety's Guest Designer, Diana Fisher. I have missed Sketchy Thursday so very much and glad to see another one of her sketches popping up - yay!


 and here is my interpretation - Henry enjoying a swim in a spa that was at a hotel we stayed in. The goggles were fairly useless in that they filled up with water as soon as they were submerged but Henry thought they were cool.

And next sketch is over at my friend Irini's challenge site - Get Creative.. another gorgeous sketch this one by Melania.


 My Lo is fairly loosely based on the sketch - didn't quite manage the perfect circle, well ok it's more of a ripped shape but if you squint it's sort of circular (squint REALLY hard!!)


But don't you love this paper? It's for CD Muckosky over at  my very fav digi store The Lilypad. It's from a range called Dreams Take Flight, different from my usual style but really like it. 

And just to keep me  happy another knitting pattern cover - ahhh, love male models esp in happy yellow....

That male model in a totally NOW shade of yellow is going straight onto my Pinterest account.
Didn't see you at the art show? Will be totally furious should you silently out bid me for that abstract wonder, mysteriously titled 'Wisdom'....

These layouts are amazing! You have a fantastic unique style!!! :D That dude is looking rather spiffy too! ;) Way too fun! :D

Melenia Agapides said...

Ι don't mind that you have loosely followed the GC sketch, you made a wonderful page. The first layout of yours is much closer to Diana's sketch (I too have missed Sketchy Thursdays) and it's a fabulous one. You definitely know how to make a perfect page without many embellies!

Elina said...

I like both pages!!! Wonderful details and colors! Thanks for playing along with us at Get Creative!!!
