Crazy together

Hey there, It's school holidays over here in Australia and they seem to be going faster than normal!!

I have been feeling like I need to set myself some creative goals. I hope to have at least a 100 scrapbooking layouts by the end of the year. For me that's huge because I normally do about 40 if that. I'm looking forward to creating more and catching up on past years because I have soooo many photos haha!!
What are your creative goals this Year?

I love having Let's Get Sketchy challenges each month, it really motivates me to create. Come and join in with this month's sketches. It's so much fun!!

I don't really use three photos on a layout but I wanted to try something new and I had the perfect three pictures. It's so hard to get a good photo when these two sisters get together. One thing, it's never boring. 

Some close ups of the fussy cut flowers and rhinestones.

We can't wait to see your layouts, come and join us at Let's Get Sketchy.
Have a lovely day!
Love Michelle xx

Boys Rule...the best cool fun

Good Morning, Happy New Year!!!

I hope 2018 is a wonderful year full of fun learning, personal growth and lots of creativity. 
Such a great way to start my year is to spend time creating and this sketch challenge helped inspire me. So head over and come and join in with us at Let's Get Sketchy

 I liked the look of the sketch turned to the other side and I'm happy how the added film strip border gave a edge to the triangle corner. This is one of my favourite boyish range called Boys Rule from Crate Paper. Yes it's an older range but I love it and I still have enough left for a few more layouts.
I machine stitched the numbers vellum on top of the star patterned paper and a few more stitching around the different triangles and the boys rule tag.

 The acetate film strip was cut out from a 12x12 sheet from Kaisercraft and the Fun word in Thickers is called Chalkboard grey.

Close ups of all the tickets and words I cut from the PP sheet. Cork stars from DIY shop and Heidi Swapp Tinsel ink splatters.

These photos were taking in 2004!! Where has the time gone!! So nice to be scrapbooking these, I have so much to catch up on.
 My goal next year is to have all my printed photos in an album. Believe me I have a massive pile. So lots of Project life layouts, 12x12 and I'm going to try 8 x 11.
In the next couple of days I will be planning out how to do that exactly and setting a monthly goal. For me I just need to set a time and sit but I will need to have lots of challenges too.
So that's why I enjoy the challenges from Let's Get Sketchy, we would love to see what you create and what goals you have for 2018. 
Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by. 
Love Michelle xx
