This past weekend my extended family and I celebrated my Poppa's 80th birthday (pictures and layouts to come). My little sister and I took a selfie that I just LOVE and when I saw the new sketch over at Stuck?! I knew they were a perfect match.

Here's the layout:

I used a color scheme for this layout that I've never really used before, having papers that I really just wanted to use but I love how all the colors came out and worked together to make a really summery look.

Oh, and here's the sketch from Stuck?! that I used:

A month ago now, I celebrated turning 19 and did so with a couple of my best girls and a barbeque. Sadly, mother nature decided it would be a good time for Auckland to experience a downpour. Most of the evening was spent in the lounge taking photos (the majority of which were silly and will soon be put to paper). I made this layout of group shots using a sketch over at sketchabilities.

I'm really so lucky to have great friends and to still be so close to them after a year of uni, traveling and work. I love them dearly.

Here's the sketch i used:

A while ago now, my best mate Zoe got us tickets to the final of X-factor (X-factor New Zealand, that is) and even though i hadn't been following the show, I had the most absolutely amazing time. So, of course, I had to scrap it.

I apologize for the quality of the picture, as it's been taken in my scrapbook. I based it on this sketch from stuck?! and made use of my new thickers!

Happy Scrapping! xoxo

Instagram, Coffee and Friends

Hey Y'all,

THis is my entry to this week's CSI challenge. Last week, I tried, but it just did not happen for me. This week, it went slightly better.

The colors:

My page:

I loved this scheme and enjoyed doing it. The picture I used, of my empty coffee cup, is one of my favs and off my instagram, which I use FAR too much. :P

Happy Scrapping xoxo

It was just yesterday that I saw the new color challenge over at Scrapfriends and i was so excited that I did the page in about half and hour (not counting all the little things added after). The picture I used is one of my baby cousin (now about twelve) about seven or eight years ago. The colors for this challenge are just gorgeous but I found it difficult to find a picture to match. I might try again with a different picture later :P that's how much I love this color scheme.

The colors:

My Layout:

These colors are just so cute and adorable! Raa! Just like the pic of my cousin saying grace. The words underneath are the lyrics to 'the thankfulness song' by veggietales as it seemed relevant and is one of my favorites.

I look forward to seeing how everybody else has used these colors!

Happy Scrapping!!

Bye Bye Anna

I enjoyed so much working on the most recent sketch over at scrapfriends with my newest scrapbooking kit from American Crafts and my old red alphabet stickers. I love how it turned out.

The Sketch:

My take:

This page is dedicated to Anna leaving NZ to go live in Germany and the journalling talks about how I hope we'll all manage to stay friends (a little cheesy yes, but true). True friends are forever.

Happy scrapping!
