October already.....

Not sure what happened to September...... :)

Anyway, now that issue 67 of the Scrapbook Magazine has hit the shops I can share the layouts I created for it.

The sketch challenge is always a favourite of mine...to produce 2 different layouts from the same sketch. 



I always love the process of finding patterned papers to coordinate with my photos, I have to get a good match and can't cope with "random".
 I was lucky ( or unlucky - depending on how you look at it..) with both these layouts as I didn't have to buy a single new thing, everything was already in my stash... just waiting for the "right " photo.

So, having just said that, my 2nd commission was to take part in the 4 ways challenge.  I was sent the kit to use along with 3 other designers, to show how we all come up with something different, using the same supplies.....
An easy way out would have been to use a black and white photo, but I took the plunge and went with a close up of  my dog Bazzil .   Not exactly the right colours - but near enough!


Thanks for stopping by
