Pink Booby Crop - Take 1

I'm a bad blogger - over a month since my last post.  Life has been busy with the usual stuff but I am determined to make more of an effort to blog (and scrap so I have something to blog about!)

A couple of Saturdays back I attended the annual Pink Booby crop when we get together to scrap, chat and raise money for Breast Cancer Care.  I was pretty productive and here are the first three pages I made...

This was the Sketchy Scrappers challenge and the sketch was set by Caroline...


I killed another Sarah's Cards' kit and made this with a candid shot of Alex taken at Carfest North this year.  The journalling reads "Your style is definitely "bold" when it comes to sunglasses!"



Next I purchased a couple of papers from Sarah's shop (would have been rude not too!) from Theresa Collins - Memorabilia collection and scrapped these two shots that Josh's scout leader had took of him on camp this year.  I love that he homed in on him eating his bacon butty for breakfast wearing his pj bottoms and his wellies!



The third one is one of my favourite shots from Crete this year as Josh and I were looking out to sea when we went down to the front at sunset.  Again I used papers bought on the day and added some stitching, some ink splatters and some punched stars when I got home.


I have a couple more to share but am still adding some finishing touches.  My aim is to get round and read everyone's blogs this week but according to Bloglovin that's 259 posts.  Might take me a while!

You have done well to post three such lovely pages all at once! I especially like how your photos are such candid and interesting shots and angles, and then your design and papers let them shine. Each is so different and all are lovely - though I have a soft spot for the sheer brightness and boldness of your first one :).

You've not lost your touch, what gorgeous layouts.

I'm in the same boat as you, I haven't blogged much recently, although I'm hoping to do more too. Maybe we can each give the other a gentle nudge lol
