MCS Kit Layouts

MCS September kit - featuring Echo Park Victoria Gardens.  
 I have followed The Color room sketch and palette #82
 Photos are Jack when he held a Gecko - he loved it!
 Same kit as before - photos of my gorgeous god-daughters.
 I was worried I was going to struggle with this kit as it was so pink, and I don't do many pink pages!
 However I as really pleased with my 'pink' layouts.
 October limited ed kit - love this kit, featuring Websters pages and embellishments
 Photos are of my lovely Cousin Jenna and her new hubby Andrew - these were two photos take by the photographer.
 I love the butterfly pin, I loved this kit - the colours are perfect for me - blues and greens!
Thanks for looking
Love and hugs Sarah x x x

Basic Grey Page of the Month Kits

Many of my blog followers know that I have had the Basic Grey Page-of-the-month kit for 3 years - and this being the 3rd year has almost come to the end, I am hoping that BG continue these kits as I have loved them.
The LO below is the November kit featuring Picadilly papers - I love these papers - very 'Cath Kidson'.
I especially loved the metal flowers.  Gorgeous pics of my furbabies!
December kit featuring Little Black Dress - this has probably been one of my favourite kits - I love black and white photos and they worked perfectly with this kit.  Photos of my boys when they met their new Cousin, Lucy.

I love the eclectic embellishments.
September kit featuring Indie Bloom.  Photos of Jenna and Andrew on their wedding day.
again more scrummy embellishments - felt flowers.
July kit featuring Out of Print paper collection - again more wedding photos, but photos of my gorgeous men in my life!
I did struggle with this kit - but I do love the yoyos embellishments
Thanks for looking

UKS Weekly Challenges

Hello!  The scrapping mojo is back!  This was helped by going to the Cre8tive crop yesterday and having some me time before the mania begins when December arrives.  It gave me the time to catch up on some UKS challenges.
 November week 2 - challenge set was to scrap autumn photos/colours, a different shape photo, bugs or glitter and paint.  I have used my fab MCS October kit - featuring Crate papers - I just love these kits soooooo much, Pam fills them with so many goodies and I love all my Layouts I create with her kits.
 I have used a photo of Sam taking at Slindon Pumpkin farm, I added paint and glitter to my LO at the bottom of the photo.
 November week 3 - Greeting in title, use oldest stash, stamp with a household item.
 Photos of Sam polishing the car, he loved looking at his reflection in the black bodywork
 My oldest stash I used was some TH grunge board flowers that have been in my stash for years and I painted them black, I also stamped using some bubble wrap.  Again I have used a MCS September kit.
 November week 1 - Round page, Unusual subject, use colours Red/hot pink or Purple, use fabric /felt/or lace. I took photos of my halloween candles.
 fabric/felt embellishments are from Purple Pumpkin
Thanks for looking and come back soon to see some more - next post will show my Basic Grey POTM kits.

CCW December Scrapmap



Hello again - sorry for being a bad blogger but as usual work and family life are taking over!  Here is December's CCW Scrapmap challenge as is being posted early as part of the CCW Countdown to Christmas.  I have used a photo take of the Coca Cola Truck that was at our local Asda supermarket, it always makes me feel that Christmas will soon be here when I see the Ad on the TV - but when we saw the lorry at the supermarket - it was so cool!!

I have used the yummy MME Lost and Found Christmas paper collection, AC thicker and MM glitter alpha, embellishments are a selection from my stash that include MME, Papermania, Purple Pumpkin anf Jenni Bowlin.  The Santa face journal tag is something I saced from a Christmas card last year.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to pop over to the CCW challenge blog and give the scrapmap a go!
Love and Hugs
