Some scrapping...

I can't believe how fast these school holidays are disappearing...but we've had fun so far. Movies, shopping, visiting Nanna and Grandpa...and loads of playing! I must admit I've been really slack on taking photos...whoops. I'll have to make a point of taking some snaps over the next few days. :)

I've been sneaking in some scrapping here and there...
This one was a sample for a challenge that Heike set over at Scrapz.Biz. It had to feature something big, an Aussie vernacular and colour blocking. I hadn't done colour blocking in AGES!
This was our trip to the Big Banana earlier this year so that covered the 'something big'.
My Aussie vernacular was 'banana-benders' in my journalling. The papers and chipboard embellies are from the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness cute!

Next is this page that I've done as my sample for this week's 'What's Cooking' challenge for Scrapz. (Details of the challenge can be found HERE.) These photos of Paul and Madi make me smile. :)

I've used papers and embellies from the Crate Paper Restoration line for this one...a little more vintage than I usually go for but I LOVE this range!

And finally...this page I threw together yesterday just for fun. I used only scrap papers from my scraps drawer, old embellies that were on my desk and old thickers.

It couldn't believe how fast and easy it came together! (I'm usually a slow scrapper. LOL) It was so fun not to worry about the design or think about elements for a challenge. I think I'll do this more often. :) Felt good to use up some old stash too!

I've been working on some cards this week ready for our World Card Making Day celebrations starting this Saturday over at Scrapz. If you feel like adding some cards to your stash why not pop on over and join in the fun? :)

Well...that's about it for the moment. I think I'll make a cuppa and watch some tv. Catch you soon!
