Scrapbook Challenge

It's been so miserable here today that I have taken refuge in my craft room and just played! No cards today but a scrapbook page inspired by the sketch on the Sketchbook 365 blog

The sketch is based on a layout by Melenia Agapides

Here is my page

This is a photo of me and my brother from waaaaaay too many years ago - probably more than 30 yikes!
I can't believe we are actually smiling as we used to fight - a lot, dad must have caught us on a good day!
I used some Bazzill card stock along with some Stampin' Up DSP (Everyday Enchantment). I also used the DSP for my bunting and flowers. The butterflies were die cut on the 'Bug and I found some weird looking paper clips shaped like hearts so I added them as well. Platinum Liquid Pearls were used for the flower centres along with some flat backed gems.
I am going to be posting more pictures over on my Scrapbook Blog for the ladies in my club if you would like to see more - see you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. I've been to both blogs and didn't know where to comment!! Love this beautiful rich blue and your take on this sketch. I do rather like this sketch - might have to join the fun!

  2. Oh goodness aren't the two of you cute?! I like how you've followed this sketch and love your color choices. Hugs!

  3. This is gorgeous - love your colour scheme. Great photo by your Dad!

    contestant #31-35 (LOL!)

  5. Hi Jacqueline:)
    What a fabulous LO and a lovely colour combination. Liquid Pearls are one of my fav things at the mo;) Thank you for taking part in our challenge:)

  6. Oh my goodness!!!! LOVE the torn paper...and the doily...and the picture! ;D This is fabulous--I really like the colors you put together. I need to start doing more scrapbooking. I just enjoy doing it digitally as I'm lazy and it takes too long to do a page when you're as crazy as I am...fabulously made, Jacqueline! :)

  7. This is lovely Jacqueline! I really like the way you've left loads of space in the layout - it really draws the eye to the photos. Vicky x

  8. Great photo. I love your colour scheme - great use of the sketch too! TFS.
