Scrapbooking From Scratch December Challenges

I Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, the best present I received was my little brother coming up for Christmas day & Boxing Day. I haven't had a Christmas with him for over 11 years.

Because the boys are older, and are too interested in playing on  their computer games, I have had time to scrap these past few days.

I came across Scrapbooking from Scratch thanks to a fellow DT member who designs for them too, so I thought I would have a go at the 4 challenges they had set for December.

The First Challenge -

  • ONE photo - Mia
  • TWO word title - Heaven Sent 
  • THREE embellishments - Scrapmatts angel wing, Zva flourish, Charms Creations Heavenly Heart 
  • FOUR papers - Kaisercraft papers 

  • Heaven Sent
    This is a layout of Mia, she is so darn cute...and looks like her mother at the same age.
    Second Challenge -
    •  One word title - Auskick
    • Two pieces of Washi - Pink, black & grey diagonal stripe (left side of layout)
    • Three Stars - 2 x Scrapmatts stars, 1 star on flair button
    • Four circle embellies - Flair button, light pink pebble, small dark pink pebble, black rhinestone

    This layout is of Fletch with his Pink gear he wanted for Auskick this year.
    Challenge 3
