My Wish List

Hi everyone!
If you've happened to see the challenge over at Sophie's Corner this month you've probably already had a glimpse of my X-mas wish list this year, as the challenge is to scrap your Christmas wish list!

Anyway, this seems like the perfect opportunity to do a post showing you what's on my Christmas/Birthday wish list this year!
Furthermore, as it is 12/12/12 I decided to post 12 items that I would love to receive for Christmas or my Birthday this year!

 1. A cute, colourful camera bag from Jo Totes

2. A essential for next year...
 3. Delta's new album to add to my collection of her CD's...

 4. Pretty Little Liars- because I'm addicted.
 5. And Smash- this show is awesome, if you happened to catch it on late night TV.

 6. This dress from Roxy- I love the colours...
7. A PMD would be the greatest gift ever...

8. These pair of Vans...
9. This cute fridge for my dorm...

10. A Spotlight gift card...

11. This cute pencil case from Typo...

12...and This cute owl necklace from Diva...

So what's on your Christmas wish list this year?
Make sure your kids enter their LO's in the challenge this month! I'm sure they'll be excited to scrap their wish list before sending it off to Santa- if they haven't already!

Thanks for stopping by,
I hope you are enjoying the holiday season!

I'm back! With some challenges!

Hi guys! Sorry for the long absence, but finally I have finished my exams and, well,  school forever! Looking forward to having a break filled with lots of free time to be creative!

I'm just sharing with you my LO's for SUYS and the123 Challenge for this month! I have only just photographed these so they are hot off the press!
At Show Us Your Stuff the challenge was to use the colour yellow and washi tape! And of course a handmade embellishment! Here's my sample- I love the bright strips of washi tape!

Over at 123 Challenge the criteria is to use pastel colours, the word 'sweet' and wire.
I have made the love heart embellishments out of wire and tissue paper!

Make sure you head over to both sites to have a go at these challenges...

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! I'm just sharing with you the LO's I completed using the two sketches over at Stuck!
The first two are inspired by the September 15 sketch, which I was so in love with I decided to create two! I found the sketch to be so versatile!  

I still haven't decided which one to enter yet! 
The next is using the first sketch from the month! I loved Celeste's take on the sketch so I decided to mimic the same concept! I thought it was a great way to incorporate all those happy snaps we take at Christmas!

That's all for now! 
Thanks again for stopping by,

It's Party Time at Stuck...

And I'm honoured to be one of the two guest tutor's featured at the site this month! Stuck Sketches is always at the top of my challenges-to-complete-this-month list (though this is very short list as exams loom closer).
I was so thrilled to win a prize at their site the other month, so you can imagine my excited when ask to create for them! There is four sketches this month and I'm sharing with you today the first bonus sketch and the August 15th Sketch!
So here's the bonus sketch...
And here's my take...
The photo is of our adorable little puppy, Bowser! Who is getting way to big way to fast! Come on, how can you not fall in love with that tilt? 
And here is the 15th Sketch...
My sample...
As you can tell, I've rotated the sketch and substituted two photos for some patterned paper! I really like how this one turned out once I got my mojo going!

So make sure you head over to Stuck to help Sara and the team celebrate their 5th birthday! What an awesome achievement! Have ago at their challenges and don't forget to join the blog hop. There are 13 prizes up for grabs! You can start here to get yourself in the draw!

SUYS- August Challenge

First day of the month= new challenges!
And here's what we have for you over at Show Us Your Stuff! Your challenge is to take inspiration from the photo!
And here's my interpretation!
I decided to scrap some of the very first images I took with my new SLR camera! My model was the perfectly cooperative jetty at Lake Bonney in my mum's home town! It is always the subject of some stunning photo's!

There are so many ways to interpret this prompt, just go and check out the other inspiration our DT has put together! Especially Eb's, how ironic!

Makeover Time...

Hi guys,
Have you checked out the new look...
show us your stuff
How great does it look? We felt the blog needed some updating and Raquel certainly did a great job at "revamping" the site!
You may also have noticed that I've done my own blog makeover! I thought it was time I personalised my blog a little more, so I finally got around to creating my own banner! I had such a great time creating it! I think I did about 20+ ideas I was that keen! Which only made choosing the final that much harder!
I hope to start blogging about subjects other than just scrapping too, to broaden my audience and hopefully get some more followers! I hope this new banner will help new readers take interest and see me as a serious creator! Over the holiday's I have come up with some cool DIY's I hope to share with you- as a starting point!
Thanks for stopping by,

Scrap the Girls

This months challenge at Scrap the Girls was to scrap photo's taken outdoors! The photo's I scrapped were much to our horror, taken outside on a freezing winters morning by a friend for her Vis-com assignment! We came into school on a Wednesday (our day off), the day before our final was due to quickly pose, like "sophicated young women" with cups of tea for Emily! It was actually a lot of fun and we soon forgot that it was 14 degrees outside! Brrrr.....

That's all for now,
Sophie xx


Hi guys,
Just popping in to share with you a couple of LO's I've done using this months sketches at Stuck!
This first one is inspired by the June 1st Sketch, using papers and embellishments from the May, a Piece of Cake Designs kit! I absolutely love the colours in this kit, they really are good enough to eat!

Here, I used the June 15 sketch and created a layout for a friend! I'm sure you all recognize her two gorgeous kiddies, Will and Maya! I snapped this image at the start of the year when I was down visiting her and meeting Marelle! I absolutely adore it and have been meaning to scrap it for a long time now!

Hope you like it, Eb! I will send it to you shortly!

Thanks for popping by,
I'll be back with another challenge layout!

Show Us Your Stuff...June...

Hi all,
This months challenge is to take inspiration from this image! How adorable is this hand crafted bird from Ashley at Secret Holiday!
I was immediately inspired by the soft pastel colours and the texture of the material, resulting in this...
Unintentionally I have used an assortment of products from the recent Crate Paper range, some of which were included in the May, A Piece of Cake designs kit! I have also used the alphas, tape and twine included in the kit!
I'm really happy with the finished layout, love the softness and delicious colour palette! Yumm....

So make sure you head over to SUYS to check out the rest of the DT's samples and make sure you enter the challenge!

The Last, First Day

 Here is the LO I created for Stuck's! May 1st sketch! It is very grungy! Lots of texture paste, mist, paint and ink! It was heaps of fun creating the paper collage out of scraps, even though it took forever!

Have to say it was a little confronting heading off for my 'last, first day' at school! Now, that is nothing compared to what I'm anticipating in the next few week! Exams and lots of assignments! Plus my Vis-Com folder is due! I'd love to show you! Maybe I'll give you a glimpse of some designs soon!!

SUYS- May 1st Challenge

Have you checked out the May 1st challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff yet? The challenge is to take inspiration from a photo you'll find over at the site! (Sorry I couldn't put it up here. Blogger is being stubborn and will only let me upload one photo!) I have been inspired by the colour palette and grungy brick work that you'll see in the photo!

I have also used some yummy Charm's Creations, who we are lucky enough to have sponsering this months challenge! If a voucher for some of these wonderful creations isn't enough to get you playing along, I don't know what will!!

So make sure you head over to SUYS and have a look at this months challenges! Group 2 is using a stunning Stacey Young technique! LOVEEEE....

Hi again...
Here is another LO I completed during my holiday scrap...For the 123 Challenge! The criteria was to use the colour mint, the word believe (it's one there somewhere) and beads. I was lucky enough to find some mint coloured beads hiding in my stash, perfect!
The papers are from the new Kaiser range, Hummingbird, that I absolutely adore.

That's all for tonight,
