Some of my DT layouts

Being the guest design team member for uproar2scrapmore.com.au I get to design a few layouts. I was eagerly waiting to see the kit. Wow!! when it arrived, I was thrilled because they were crate papers and some fantastic pastel shade card stock. I am a brights person. I normally do not choose pastel colors. So, to get some pastels and make layouts was a sweet challenge. I am able to use my kid’s baby photos.

These layouts are simple and clean because I want the focus on the photo and journaling. I am happy with how it has turned out. So pleasant to look at. Appropriate for baby layouts. Enjoy!!]

No: 1s in the family!!!!!!!!

This is interesting. I have two challenges to do at uproar2scrapmore. I combined them because one was a sketch and the other was Charmane’s challenge for the First Birthday. Charmane’s challenge rules are use “1” in the title, used chipboard altered for the layout and use rub ons(plural).

The sketch is.

Here is my take:

I loved doing this one as I made the envelope and the tags and also used pastel shades of blue and yellow which I have never used previously. We have 3 persons in our family who are No.1 born so I decided to scrap with that idea. But we are also the majority at home. So I sort stuck with this idea of using this song “we are one but we are many” in this layout. My journaling goes… “we are no.1s but we are many”. I loved how this layout evolved from the sketch to using the challenge rules and then the song idea. Cool hun!!!

A good day today.

Well had a rough day yesterday. Wish I was more organized! Today is good. I have at least prioritized my to do list. Just have to follow it and tick it off.

My DD lost her top front tooth yesterday! She is cool about it. OMG! all the Iffff” and “ufff” coimg out of her mouth when she talk is sort of like that Ultra Tune ad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is one more wobbly about to fall any minute. All the “ifffs and Ufffs” are going to get worse. Got to take a photo soon. These photos are to be treasured and scrapped of course. Yeah! Soon you will see it in one of my layout.

Shopping in Coles yesterday was so difficult because kids came with me!! Ended up having a headache. Off late, I am surviving with 2 paracetamols every other day. Headaches, migraines, tension…………….. I am soon going to have kidney trouble!!

I managed to get into the forums and chat and put up some info about myself as I was in the spotlight at uproar2scrapmore.com.au Few questions answered………………..

Oh! BTW, I also won the September make your own embellishment RAK by Tracey for my “little precious one” layout. I am one of the winner. How cool is that?

I also prioritized how many layouts I got to make in total. Looks like I have about 10 left!!!!!!!!!!!! One per day I should be able to finish it. I think so if I keep up to it.

Will load couple of layouts tonight
