It's November already...can you believe it? Christmas will be upon us before we know it...eeek!  But in the meantime it's time another Jot Mood Board Challenge and I just LOVE the colour combo in this one put together by lovely Jot Girl Kim J!!!  Gorgeous pinks and pretty!  Check it out....

August 2015 Jot Mood Board Challenge

This month our new mood board has been put together by Jot Girl Amanda pretty with shades of blue, white washed backgrounds and splashes of silver!

Here's what I came up with...

All of those pretty blues were just perfect for this photo of our little blue budgie!  I used a cut file from the Silhouette shop in my background which reminded me of the circular designs in the mood board.  Then I used a mix of blue patterned papers, a white woodgrain frame and a few splashes of silver all inspired by the mood board.

We'd love for you to join in again with this month's challenge!  You can find all the details and more Jot Girl samples over on the Jot Blog HERE.

Happy scrapping!

Don't you just love that gorgeous colour combo?  I've always loved orange and turquoise together but I don't think I've used them with pinks and greens before.  It was fun and I love how these colours work together!
Here's what I came up with using this fun photo of Madi...

May 2015 Jot Mood Board

I just love the new May Mood Board put together by Jot Girl Jodie this month!  The colours and are so gorgeous!!!

Jodie has even created a free brush script for you to download and use on your challenge page!  So cool!  Here's what I came up with...

Funny how sometimes kids can struggle with something and then all of a sudden realise it's not so hard after all!  That's how Madi was when it came to floating on her back.  This particular day she realised it wasn't so scary and she floated around like that for AGES!  So good to see. :)

You can find all the challenge details and the link to get your brush script HERE on the Jot Magazine Blog.  We hope you'll join in!

More Jot Issue 9 Projects...

I have two more projects to share today that I contributed to Issue 9 of Jot Magazine

This layout was created for the Oh Deer Gallery.  We took these photos on a trip to New Zealand and it was the first time the kids had seen deer up close and they were amazed at how beautiful they were!

Next is the page I scrapped for the Back to School Storytelling Gallery. 

This was Madi's first day of school. She really did have the best day and couldn't wait to go back!

If you haven't seen this latest issue of Jot why not head on over there now and read it for free online HERE!

Thanks for stopping by!

There's a pretty new mood board challenge up now over at Jot Magazine!  This one has been put together by lovely Jot Girl Meghann...

 I just love this mix of navy, orange, pinks, green and gold!  Here's my sample page:

Lately I seem to be reaching for older photos to scrap and I just love this pic of Madi and her best friend Livvy dancing around the backyard dressed as little fairies!  They both look so little and it brings back lots of fun memories. :)

Jot Magazine Issue 9

Have you seen the latest issue of Jot?  As always it's packed full of gorgeous projects and ideas with lots of interesting articles too.

You can read it for free online HERE!

I have a few projects in this issue so I thought I'd share a couple here...

This first layout was for the Sweet Babies Gallery. It was so fun going back over old photos of my baby girl and I couldn't believe I hadn't scrapped this photo already.  It makes me giggle every time I look at that cheeky little face!

This next page was for the Handstitched Gallery.  I used to handstitch on my pages all the time but lately I've relied on my sewing machine for all my it was fun to get back to doing it by hand!

I stitched a border around the corner of the photo and blanket stitched down the diagonal of the background.

I also added some cross stitches to this American Crafts wooden frame. I love the way it turned out!

I do have a couple more pages to share but I'll pop back again with those soon.  In the meantime...make sure you pop over to check out Issue 9 of Jot!
