Pencil Lines challenge and other scrap Layouts.

Finally, with the kids back at school, I have had the opportunity to do some scrapping, so I though I would share these three LO's with you. Sorry this post is a bit picture heavy.
This first one was for the Pencil Lines challenge,where you had to use a sketch to design a LO. If you are interested in using a Pencil Lines design, you will find the blog here. I used one of my favourite pictures of the girls. I wanted to show how they are growing up so fast. The paper is a mixture of DCVW, Papermania and Dovecraft.
This is a tag from My Mind's Eye, a collection I bought at Ally Pally.

This LO is another favourite photo of hubby and me. I kept the picture black and white as I wanted to keep the colours in the LO simple. I had to stick the flower on as I marked the photo, luckily it matched the LO.

This last LO is one of hubby at Earnley Gardens last week, with his new bird. If he could have brought this bird home he would have! I can just see my cat licking his lips in anticipation.

The paper is the Penny Lane range by My Mind's Eye. I cut around the bird and put the photo behind it. This is quite a simple LO for me and I am fighting the urge to add more to it.
The tag is from Bo Bunny. So there are a few scrap pages that I have been busy creating this week. What creative things have you been doing this week?
Pop back tomorrow for Sunday Salon. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Love the layout of you & hubby & the one of your girls, gorgeous colours & the scalloped circle is wonderful!

  2. I like the love bird and new bird--so cute! Your scrapping is so much better than mine, I used to feel like I should have just paid someone to make my wedding scrapbook... But I guess the whole point is that I'm making ours so that makes it more special, lol.

  3. Wow Viv - what beautiful layouts. I love My Mind's Eye papers, they are so lovely and really thick paper, too. Did you do the green lettering on your Cricut? Beautiful font. I know what you mean about having to resist doing more to it - it looks fab, leave it alone!

  4. I really like that picture of you with your husband! The bird one is mighty cool!

  5. Your layouts are great! I've always wanted to start scrapbooking but sadly don't have the time for it yet. I'm taking notes from you!


  6. I have been doing nothing! :)
    Your pages look great. I actually have an album I got at Christmas that I need to fill up. One of these days I will start scrapping again. I have a big stack of photos that need homes.

  7. I see a pretty Indian Ringneck! We had one when I was a kid named Oscar that was really a grouch. We all thought he was evil and no matter how much we tried to work with him he didn't take to any of us :(

  8. 17 years together is fantastic, I love hearing stuff like that. Beautiful layouts.

  9. Wonderful scrapbooking as always. The polka dots are so cute.
    17 years..thats awesome!

  10. More gorgeous layouts! I'm especially in love with that top one...and your daughters are just so beautiful!
