Prima Product Pick - October

I thought I had better share my interpretation of the October Prima Product Pick.  I have used a photograph of my only Granddaughter about her independence in making her own snacks.

This is the Product Pick I used:

The Color Room #135

I created this layout using the Color Room Palette #135.  I am still enjoying the Color Room challenges, even though I don't have Facebook so am not intending on loading my layouts to their page.  The photographs are from one of the many changes my daughter made to the layout of her store (Scrapbook Fantasies) in it's previous premises over the nine years and seven months it was there.

White with 1 - November Challenge

This month the White with 1 Challenge is to use White, Green and Chevrons.  There seems to be a lot of people using Chevrons at the moment, and I have found that they work especially well with most themes.  I went with a nature photograph for this challenge, from my trip to Byron Bay a few years ago.

Just as a side note my daughters store (Scrapbook Fantasies) is one of the sponsors at White with 1 this month too.

Scrap the Boys - November

This months challenge at Scrap the Boys is a colour set of really great boy colours.  I had fun creating this layout using the colours provided and also a playing card that I had scanned and printed myself quite some time ago.

And this is these are the colours:

The Color Room #136

This is my interpretation of the Color Room Palette #136.  I enjoyed creating with this simple and elegant palette and sketch, with a photograph of my oldest Grandson Abseiling.

Alicia's Sketch Challenge - November

I am the special guest designer for my daughter, Alicia's Sketch Challenge.  As her guest I created a layout and she then created her Sketch Challenge from it.  I have used some photographs of my youngest grandson, Noah and how he is growing up.

Using the sketch you can create either a card or a layout for a chance to win one of four ribbon packs and two vouchers.  You can view all the details at Alicia's Blog.

And this is the sketch based on my layout:

Kraft It Up - November

The challenge this month at Kraft It Up is to create with a minimalist style.  I have to say that this was a big challenge for me, and my busy style.

Once Upon A Sketch - November 2012

I created this layout using this months sketch at Once Upon A Sketch, and my own choice of theme (as it is Anything Goes month).

This is the sketch:

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge #1 - November 2012

I am very honoured to have been chosen (randomly) as a Guest Designer this month at the Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge Blog.  The first challenge for the month is to create a layout about your first job, and mine was at the Gladstone Meatworks in 1956 when I was 16.  The photograph on my layout is from a much earlier time, as I don't have any photographs of myself at the Meatworks.

I can highly recommend the challenges at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge, and Anne and her team need to be given a round of applause for a job well done.
