Ok I just realised I missed out week 3 so here is the layout. I am hoping to organise the sketches over the next week & get up to date with those. This layout is good for using up scraps of left over papers. I inked the edges of each piece & mounted the photos onto patterned paper.

This weeks challenge is a double layout. The placement of the photos & mats & embellilshments is quite easy to see. I used chipboard for the title & embossed it with red embossing powder & then sprinkled on some sparkly black embossing powder & heated it again. I used small rubber rings to mimic the racing cars tyres!

These are my photos for the challenge. The photo of my garden is for "comfort" because. I love sitting out in the yard in the late afternoon to relax at the end of the day. It was great having "books" as a theme since I love reading. These books are my collection of old books & the bible belonged to my father. The stories & the illustrations in these books are quite unique. For "signs" I took a photo of a sign of our favourite wineries that surround the dam where we stay quite often. It is Bjelke Petersen Dam out near Murgon (near Kingaroy in QLD) & the wines are all lovely. Our most favourite winery is Moffatdale Ridge about 5 minutes away from the dam & they have yummy lunches as well!

Here is the layout I did for the second week of the challenge. The border on the left is a row of punched circles. The chipboard title has been heat embossed with copper embossing powder & held in place with 4 brads. The photos are mounted to the right hand side of the page & a buckle & ribbon are placed just up from the bottom edge.

This is the layout for the February kit. It is available from the Greenbank Scrapbook Shop (32001832) & we are running kit classes on Tuesday 9/2/10 at 7pm & Friday 12/2/10 at 9.30. There is a link on my blog to the shop so you can click on it to see the calendar & find out what is going on there.
Here is the layout for the first week challenge. I have had trouble uploading the sketch but the LO is fairly easy to copy from. The small photos are 10cm square & are matted on the one piece. The sketch had the title where I put the fish skeletons and the embelllishments at the bottom. The skeletons are chipboard that has been inked with 2 different coloured inkpads. You could coat them in dimensional magic for a raised glossy look. The journal block & title are pre-made. I also used metal embellishments to add texture. So, have a go & happy Scrapping!

Wishing you all many "Happy Hearts" for February. That means thinking about the things that make you happy & bring you joy....then actually making them happen! Something that brings me joy is listening to the rain on our tin roof-and for the fact that we have tank water & that every drop counts! The photos are part of the challenge. I couldn't decide between the quilt I made or the timber hand for "handmade" . The cupcakes & the teacups are for "sweet" because they are all so sweet! My motto to living a joyful life is "Live well, Laugh often & Love much"
