ScrapLounge & Purple Pumpkin - February

WOW I can not believe it is already February...Here in QLD we have been through a lot the past few weeks...Icky Hot weather followed by a terrible storm that has sent devastation across the state...on the plus side...the kids are back at school and life at my house can slowly start to get back to normal...

This month on Scraplounge we have 2 fantastic challenge for you. The theme is...'Happiness'

This awesome Sketch was created by me this month..
and here is my take on it...
This is a layout of my cousin Ross and his Beautiful wife Amber on their wedding day.
Our Technique challenge was to use Fabric on our layouts.
So I decided to use Crece's calico creations. Which simply means I used calico as my background instead of using a piece of paper...
I love this photo of my 2 boys dressed as clowns...this is also the layout I used for
 my scrapmatts GDT yesterday...
Over at Purple Pumpkin we have our fab sketch challenge on again for February...
Here is the February sketch:
February's sketch was created by the talented Debbie Burns
and this is my take on the layout...
Thanks for looking, and I hope you have ago at some or all of these challenges this month
