Scrapbook Fantasies - Weekly Scrapbook Challenge #22/2014

This weeks challenge at the Scrapbook Fantasies Blog is to create a layout about a Pet or Animal.  I created my layout about Noah and his Budgie, Blu-belle.  Sadly Blu-belle passed away recently, leaving a big gap in all of our lives.

AFSC - June Prompt Challenge

Hello everyone, I am here with you today to share my layout created using the June Prompt Challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge (AFSC).

The Prompt is:

What is your favourite pastime on your computer? Pinterest? Facebook? Recipes? Poker? Make a layout of art journalling page about it.

As I don't have a computer I created my layout about the obsession my Grand-children have with theirs.

Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - Prompt Challenge - March 2014

I am happy to announce that I am part of the Design Team at the recently re-opened Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge site.  I have admired the work of Anne and her team for quite some time, and it is an honour to be included on her new team.  In 2012 when I was going through a rough time medically (Big C) I was a Guest Designer for Anne and it was a pleasure then too.

Anyway enough waffle now onto my layout for the March Prompt Challenge, which is to:

Scrap or art journal about a favourite song in from your teens.  You can scrap some of the lyrics, or the title, or a photo of the band …

And this is the layout that I created about the fabulous Marty Robbins and his song "A White Sports Coat":

As you can tell I didn't have any photographs of Marty or myself at the time, so I just went with it and created elements that meant something to me from that era.
