Soul Scrappers October

 I've been playing along with Soul Scrappers year-long competition "Soul Survivor"  and I've been loving it!

I've got later and later each month uploading my page, but haven't missed a month yet!

And here's my October page...

This month's brief was Fish, Sand & Shells.  Pick 1 or all 3.  Depending on how you look at it I have all 3 if you count the photo.

Shells - chipboard shells with a bit of Wink of Stella sparkle.

Sand - actual beach sand from Esperance, it's the most super fine white sand you will ever see!

Fish - in the photo! 

I've used the gorgeous Seaside Serenity range from Studio 73.  You can find it here

Shells from Memory Maze and beach sand from Esperance.

I had lots of fun fussy cutting and layering.

Thanks for stopping by...

Mystical Scrapbooks September Cyber Crop

 Mystical Scrapbooks September CC is all about Paint and Ink..

My page is our Easter 2020... which due to the  Covid 19 shut-down, it was a non-event! 

Bunny left some treats on the table and a few hidden eggs around the house.  No Easter pancakes for breakfast, no family morning tea with hot crossed buns.... and a cancelled Easter lunch with the girls...

Mum dropped an egg for Ethan off at the door and we waved to each other from the doorstep, once Mum had moved back to the driveway.

But it's was a small price to pay to keep everyone that I love safe!

Time flying by....

 I always forget to come and blog... I guess everything goes up on Facebook these days, I kinda feel it's a bit repetitive blogging stuff too.

It does make it easy to look back on things, so I'm going to try and get back into the habit, just for myself as I don't think anyone reads it anyway! 😜😃

What's in the Bickie Tin - A just for fun challenge blog.  I finally managed to do a page for it!!

This photo was taken on 22nd March 2020,  we had lunch at Raymond's before it sadly closed down.  It had a lovely garden to wander around in, but the owners wanted to retire and no-one wanted to buy it from my understanding, as the area is going more light industrial. 

This was our last group outing before the Covid 19 shutdown.

Time to scrap!

I finally found some time to scrap today!  

I love running my shop Mystical Scrapbooks, but it can, however, leave me little time to actually sit and scrap... the irony of having your hobby become your business I suppose 😀

But today I put everything else aside and finished a page I started at the beginning of the month for Soul Scrappers SURVIVOR competition

This month we needed 7 trees including a palm tree,  as the trees could be in the photo, it was perfect for our Singapore holiday photos!

Colour Blast Find Paradise range was perfect for this challenge!  I have my trees in the photos and my palm trees are from Dusty Attic.

As the background paper has such lovely details all I wanted to do was frame my photos at bit with flowers and foliage and add some layers for a bit of interest.  

I've used Colour Blast Leaves of Paradise die as well as Kaisercrafts Tropical die set so I got different size leaves, some Nuvo drops and it's done.

Time to go and clean up my desk for some more scrapping!

Take care

Scrapbooking Gourmet Competition

Finally got some scrapping completed!

Mystical Scrapbooks 2020 Competition - Week 2

My friend and I have been going to the ballet together for a few years now, and last November we treated ourselves to high tea put on by the WA ballet.  Some of the dances where attending wearing beautiful diamonds and pearls from one of their sponsors.

It was a lovely afternoon, yummy treats, amazing bubbles, and a lovely setting.  The Loft Bar, InterContinental Perth

I've popped the photos thought the protective sheet so you can read the journalling without taking the page out :)

Using some gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla ranges - Legendary and More than Word Ephemera - Flair from the competition kit and Nuvo Drop.

Feb Cyber Crop

Not a whole of scrapping going on, but I did manage 1 layout for Mystical Scrapbooks February Cyber Crop :)

I love this photo of Ethan and's the first time Ethan held Jack and the look on his face is priceless... a mix of awe and fear I think!

I have had this piece of chipboard for years!  and I think it's just perfect for this layout :)

Till next time...

Day 27...

...and only my 2nd page for the year!

So much for trying to scrap (or do something) every day!

Typical me, I take on too much at a time, as I also started a big clean and purge of my scrap-space... and I'm slowly getting there...

Craft Room Organization - 52 Weeks to an Organized Workspace Step 2 - Empty and clean

I'm still at the putting stuff back in stage... so I'm going to be on step 2 for a while! 

But I did stop to create a page for Just Add Flair - monthly challenge page 

Where we stayed for our 2018 Christmas holiday has 2 pools, and Ethan loved it!  He has so much fun going from one to the other... and just like me as a kid, he would have stayed in the water all day every day if he could!
 Till next time...
