Awesome Drying Weather @ The Memory Nest

Another day more scrapping at The Memory Nest

Here is Kellie's April 1 sketch


I have to say I have never scrapped a LO using a sketch like Kellie's before...lots of elements could just mix & match!

Also my arty neighbour bought in a paper bag of her offcuts this very morning...all little squares & rectangles of mulberry I used that as part of my page too.

Thanks for taking a peek..

Play Time @ Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge

Time to scrap this week bought me across to Freaking Scrappy Challenge Blog

The challenge for April 1 is
Scrap or art journal about a favourite pastime from your youth. Was it a sport, fishing, cycling, reading, or teasing your older brother? Use a photo of when you were young, a photo of the pastime, or whatever is appropriate!!!

And here is my page...using a photo, a grainy old one taken with the beloved Box Brownie of me at the park when I was just 2&1/2.  I loved playing on the swings & the see-saw!

Was fab to scrap this along with lots of bits & bobs I have collected...including this group  stamps from a parcel.

Memories of a Fearless Tree Hugger @CMS

April already - wow!!! I cant believe it!

So another fabulous palette from Color Me Scrappy & here it is...

And here is my take 

I just loved these colours from when I saw them, they gave me a ‘sunny & happy’ feel.
So I choose this photo of my 7 year old grandson Harry, to work with this palette -
he is such a dear lad & rather a wag too!

Found this little paper bag so added a journaling card, with my story tucked into it.
Memories of a Fearless Tree Hugger
Hope you liked this simple layout that I loved working on.

Excited to be a Guest Designer at Black With 2!!!


I have to say I was very chuffed to be given a Guest Designer spot for the month of April at 
Black With 2!! Wow!

Here is the fabulous Mood Board that Eve has set & it is a beauty!

Here is a closeup of the monthly sketch..


With all these delicious colours I choose to scrap a photo of my dear mum at my wedding in 1976!
I really bad quality photo, but I worked in my editing program, & eventually had a reasonable photo to play with.

I was sent a bundle of goodies from dear Joy Anderson from the US recently & the serviette she sent (for some Art Journaling) was perfect! Added with a lovely heart I received in a Trinket Swap from Tiff at Scrap Sanity, & some other glories, I really loved putting this page together.

How about you also play along this month?
