I know it is such a cliche, but where has time gone!

I must start off with an apology - I totally forgot to do my blog post for August!  I am the senior umpires convenor at our local netball association and as we come to the end of the season and into finals I was swamped with paperwork.  It is all now finished for another season so I now have time to breath!

My first two layouts today I created for Stuck Sketches August Challenges which was sponsored by Scrapmatts.  My idea was to showcase some of their great products.  I created the layouts but forgot to upload them and then the month finished - just add it to the list.

The first layout was for the August 1 Sketch.  A photo of hubby and I on a recent trip to Vietnam.  Not the most attractive.  We had just scrambled up a rock path at Marble Mountain and it was very hot and humid.

 I also used happy from CB 6115 Assorted Words 28 - so new the image isn't up yet!
The Topary heart & happy have been coloured with Dew Drop inks.

 My second layout was for August 15 Sketch.  Love how this one turned it.  This is view from my daughters balcony overlooking the bay at Bellerive in Hobart Tasmania.

And again Today is from CB6116 Assorted Words 29
I have also coloured the chipboard with the Due Drop Inks.

Here is another layout I did for a challenge and didn't get around to uploading!
Love how this layout turned out.  This was a day at Port Arthur in Tasmania with my girls.

I hope you have been inspired of my use of Scrapmatts chipboard and stencils.

Happy Scrapping!!

  2. Gorgeous layouts Lisette, I Know you are not the first or last that has forgotten to post. I know because I have done it and I was in a right mess...

  3. Three different and lovely pages Lisette. I like the bold colour on the first one, the use of the frame on the middle one and the sweet cluster on the third one. All special pages to showcase Scrapmatts to perfection.
