Early look at A2Z April Challenge

HAPPY EASTER everyone!!!! Hope you are having an awesome day no matter where you are or what your doing.

Since I am heading off tomorrow for a sort holiday I am giving my followers an early look at Aprils challenge. It is a QUOTE challenge and the quote is:

This quote needs to be on your page somewhere. Here is my take:
Love this photo of my 3 girls. I have kept the page focus on the photo. And where is the A2Z Scraplets you may ask??? It is here:
This AWESOME stencil is one of the new stencils released by A2Z!!!! I now have all of them and love each and everyone!!!
Remember you don't have to use the whole stencil. I used only the hearts to make it look like the wind is carrying off some 'leaves'
I have used a mini runner from Charms Creations, flowers from Handmade Halo, prima flowers and the rest from Scrapbooking In Geraldton to make this cluster.
I also put some hearts at the bottom
So now for the rules: You have til the end of April to enter. You do NOT need to have any A2Z Scraplets on the layout but we would LOVE to see them i you do. The quote MUST be one the page somewhere. Head HERE to link your entries. Since I have put this up early AND its a long weekend please give it time for the link to be up.
Thanks for looking

123 March Challenge

Have you heard the fab news???? 123 Challenge Blog is up and running again under new ownership!!!! And they have their first EVER challenge up!!! Its:

Here is my take on the challenge:
This is of my youngest girl playing with her feet (cause at that age you can ) As you can see I used black, the work year is on the right side and the twine circle is around the flower. But not sure how I did the twine is ok and therefore not sure if if it qualifies??? If not ok thats fine, had soooo much fun doing this and can not wait til next months :D
Now for some close ups:
The stencil is a brand new one from A2Z Scraplets!!! Love it!!!! So easy to work with. The title is also from A2Z
More of the fab stencil, title and the twine circle. Love the heart from Charms Creations and the flower is from Scrapbooking In geraldton
And a close up of the words. So very true, still loves her feet

Scrap Everything Sketch Challenge

Hello people!!! Sorry I am been missing in action. Along with the normal life stuff I was busy making to enter the Scrapbooking Creations Design Diva comp. Do I think I have a chance? No. But I do like doing this stuff as it helps me get me thinking and trying new ideas. Once I can will show off what I made. LOVE all that I made. Thinking of framing the 2 layouts and the OTP if just fab and can not wait til Christmas (thats all I am saying lol)

Now I also did this layout to inspire you all to enter the Scrap Everything March Sketch Challenge. With the sketch you can make either a layout OR a card.

Here is my layout:

And a close up:

As you can see I used some A2Z Scraplets (of course) along with Prima paper, Kaisercraft paint and pearls and Handmade Halo Drew Drops

Here is the sketch:

Its a simple sketch but one that can suit any style.

The rules: Must be able to tell its from this sketch and entered my the end of the month on the Scrap Everything Facebook page (HERE) and it will be shared for everyone to see. Also can not be linked with other challenges.

Inspiration for the A2Z March Challenge

Well after a week of sick kids, teething and little sleep I finished my inspiration for the March A2Z theme challenge....which is SUMMER. Here is my take:

This is my oldest girl digging for shells on a beach. Not the best photo in the world but I love it. Now I was going for a bright summer feel but it just didn't work. But these colours did.

The close ups:

I just LOVE this fence and went soooo well with a beach theme layout. I used the new Tim Holtzs Distress Paint, the Distress Ink and then a little Glimmer Mist. The Crab I used Viva Inka-Gold, Lava Red. You rub it on the surface. It has a boot polish feel. Both the fence and crab are from A2Z Scraplets.

The title, also from A2Z, came in one piece but I cut it up to put around the photo. I used gesso then painted it with a mix of Kasiercraft paint to get the colour I wanted. You can also see the Micro Seed Beads I used under the crab.

I used a Inkadinkao Beach Theme Stamp set, Kasiercraft Die Cut, shells, Micro Beads and Handmade Halo Key Charm. The template is Crafters Workshop and I used Texture Paste, Kasiercraft Paint and before I lifted it off I sprayed a little Glimmer Mist.

Another Handmade Halo charm and Dolly.

So if you want to enter the challenge all you need to do is a summer theme layout. It can have summer photos or summer colours or both!!! And if you have no A2Z Scraplets you can still enter, but, of course, if you do we would love to see how you use them. The challenge ends on the 31st of March, Queensland, Australian time. We had 13 entries last month would love to see that many again. Head HERE to enter.

Congrats to you!!!! Email me at with your address and will send out your prize!!!
Now for this months challenge is a theme challenge and its:

Yep summer is over for us in Australia so lets remember it with layouts. We are looking for the fab photos that are summer, the beaches, pool, playgrounds, harvest (well I am a farmer lol) and any summer sports. But hey, no photos??? No worries do a layout with summer colours, the blues, yellows and greens or any colour that shouts SUMMER. Or maybe a layout that has both!!!! Its up to you. As long as we can see 'SUMMER' that's fine. And if you have no A2Z scraplets no worries you can still enter. But if you do would love to see how you use them. The challenge ends on the 31th of March at midnight Queensland, Australian time.

Now due to one child keeping me up all night I have not finished my take on the challenge. When it is I will post it.

Head HERE for the A2Z blog. We had 13 people enter last month, lets bet it this month!!!!

Thanks for looking

Belinda :)
