more lifts....

I just can't help it! I'm loving 'scraplifting' these layouts. My fave of these two is the first one which is a scrap lift of Rhonna Farrer. I enjoyed playing with some bright colours & decorative scissors for this lift of Wendy...
thanks for looking :-)

scrap lifting

No.8 is doing an inbetween dare - you have to lift some of the freestylers so check it out - heaps of inspiration for this one. I couldn't just do one so have done two & hope to do some more... Lifted Tia Bennett

Lifted Emily Falconbridge

Last night we had our monthly crop at Scrap Of Faith. As well as bingo & a quiz there were two scrapping challenges. An early bird one & one due on Monday.

This layout was for the longer challenge - it had to include the word 'faith' in it. Loving the new Scenic Route Metropolis papers as well as the gorgeous bright cherry arte!

This was the early bird challenge - we had to 'lift' someone in the SOF gallery & create a layout about 'forgiveness'. I lifted the gorgeous Ali Russell (I've been eyeing up some of her layouts for a while now.... great excuse to lift them eh?!)

Have you been to the Scrapbook Outlet gallery yet? I'm trying not to look till late tonight or early tomorrow as all the entries for the Outlet Survivor are coming in - you might still have time to put together an entry..... It's due midnight tonight & the rules etc. are in the forum somewhere - you need 2 layouts & one OTP - one of these things can have been seen before but 2 have to be new... I hear from many sources that there is some cool stuff in there! Any Aussies or NZr's are welcome to submit an entry!

Monday off as it's Otago Anniversary day so no Playcentre tomorrow but the girls have school - they Do Southland Anniversary which falls over the summer break. I get to go on a trip with Alicia in the morning which I wouldn't normally be able to do - great timing!

street art

I'm thinking this was the hardest dare yet! Wasn't till I saw a layout of Roos that I decided I could actually do this dare, love that the dares help keep me on my toes & thinking rather than just doing what I already know. Thanks NZ dares team!

I scrapped it

the photo in the previous post that is....
Nik challenged me at our scrap retreat to create a layout with no patterned paper. I went to use some Basic Grey tags & wasn't allowed to use them either!! - if they are patterned paper why are they called tags?
Anyway I like what resulted from the challenge :-)
The retreat was fantastic - hot - but heaps of fun with many laughs! A few early mornings - like to bed early in the morning & up only a little later - but 8am is a sleep in for a mum! I got 15 layouts completed which was pretty good - but Louise got 23 pages done (of some paper bag albums) - what an amazing effort. Have the total number of pages coming which I'll post on the retreat blog - when I get around to it! The retreat was sooo good we are adding a Friday onto the next one for those who can get away for an extra day.
The make & takes wen't down really well. They were sponsored by the Scrapbook Outlet & Scrapbook Essentials - both these stores also gave us bits for goodie bags & prizes too. Our next one is at the end of July.
A few Scrapbook Outlet comps on the go at the moment....
going green : you gotta creat a layout with green as the 'base colour' & upload it to the gallery by Sunday 18th midnight to be in the draw for a $20 voucher
Get Real - you have till the end of the month to get these albums done... amazing prizes like a cricut & $100 SBO voucher!
Design Team Call - check the forum but the first round of entries are due in on March 25th - Andrea is amazing to work with on the Design team, yummy scrapping goodies & more each month!
I'm also looking forward to doing the online classes with Ali & Nat at Scrap Of Faith this month - the look gorgeous.... I'm working on the instructions for mine next month. It's just $10 for the classes & you can purchase kits too - $5 of the class goes to charity too :-)
