Jersey Open Water

Jersey Open WaterI used this months gorgeous scrapagogo kit and last weeks sketch on the sketches by Tamara blog.

The journalling reads as follows:
On Sunday 21st September 2008 the very first Jersey Open Water Competition was held at St Catherine’s Bay. Despite how the weather looks in the pictures the sea was very rough. Katherine swam in the Junior 3km race and won by over 10 minutes. Afterwards she described it as ‘like being in a washing machine’. The combination of wind and tide blew them way off course making it much longer than 3km. Because of the weather the senior 5km race was reduced to 3km and Graeme took part in this finishing a very creditable 4th, in the men’s race.

I want to break free

I want to break free  This is my take on this weeks UKS challenge.  There were certain words that could be in the title one of which was free which seemed to fit the photos - just about!

The rest of the challenge required using old stash and adapting old bits so I found an old chipboard tag, a 3d embellishment and a bottle top and painted them all then put stickers on.  Once the white paint was out decided to go round the edges of all the papers too!!  I cut the patterned paper on my cricut.

Just realised the date should be 2007 not 08!!  Will have to change that tomorrow!!

Monthly Crop

Plougrescant  I did this layout for this weeks UKS challenge.  The challenge was for a French theme or title and to use a sketch amongst other things.  These photos were taken earlier in the year on a day trip to France.

For the layout below I used this weeks sketch on the Sketches{by Tamara} blog.  The sketch is for a single layout but I rotated it and used it again for the right side.  Photos are from a visit to a vineyard in Napa this summer.

I used this months lovely scrapagogo kit for both layouts.

Bat and Ball

Bat and Ball - 600  I did this layout yesterday.  I used the sketch on the Sketches by Tamara blog as my inspiration.  I also tied it into the this month last month challenge on Scrapagogo as all the papers, letters and embellishments are from the last 2 kits.

Photos are of my nephew and daughter playing on the beach in the summer.

What is a cat?

What is a cat  I wouldn't normally put a poem on a layout - nothing wrong with it but it's just not the way I normally scrap.  However this weeks challenge on UKs wanted something scrumptious and a poem so I found this lovely photo of Katherine and Barley and a poem about cats on the internet.
