OTR DT Pages

Sharing a couple of DT pages done for Off The Rails challenge blog.
The first one from April, a long story about my Dad and me, rather personal so I have covered most of it with the watermark. 

 And this month's page for the monochromatic challenge, details will be posted on the OTR blog on Saturday.

I'm off to create now as it's cold and windy here today.

Clearly Catch Up

Howdy folks

The last few months have been quite distracting so my little part of the blogosphere here has been neglected. Sorry.
So today I will share with you some of my DT work for Scrapping Clearly.

Firstly, April...

 Using the Simple Stories 'Heart' range with some Colour Blast paste.

Both these pages done with Cocoa Vanilla 'Made of Awesome' range.

And a cool clear album, you can see more pics and details here.

Secondly, May...

My Baby

And a page for Scrap the Boys too this month.
My youngest has started High School, yay!!
But of course that means he's too cool to smile now, haha.

Here is the challenge, click on the graphic.


Playing again at Kraft + this month since I have been enjoying their challenges so much. I also had the chance to get away to an intimate scrap retreat (only 9 of us!) last weekend at the Gold Mine Guesthouse in Nundle so got some pages done without having to scrounge time.
So this is my page

And this is the challenge, click on the graphic to go to the post.

New Friends

The February challenge over at K+ was 'Going Postal' so I made a postal imprint pattern over my photo as if it was the stamp. Loving how these challenges are making me think outside the box.

Still a couple of days to get yours in, click on the image below to see the challenge post.

Fathers Day

Also had a go at the Archiscraps challenge this month,
the theme is clocks.


Playing with the challenge at More Than Words this month.
I made this page using Colour Blast texture pastes, you can't see it here but, they have amazing shimmer. I added sparkle with black bling too.

This is the challenge
There is still a little time to enter.

New Challenge Blog

A brand new challenge site hit the blogosphere this year, More Than Words.
It's fresh and funky so I thought I'd play along, having extra creative time thanks to school holidays.

I used these Words or Whatever Chippies - Title, summer themed.
This was the challenge, click on the image to go to the page
and come play along too.

Lucky Shot

Playing along with Kraft+ again this month, I scrapped a pic from the Artist retreat at Norah Head last year. This was something I got to cross off my bucket list, an intimate retreat with a spectacular venue, I could've stayed a lot longer!

The tissue paper I used was acquired in a Paris fashion shop 4 years ago,
ain't it gorgeous! And the title I designed and cut with my Silhouette, Words or Whatever now sell them with an added shamrock.
The challenge was to use your own handwriting.

A Weekend in Honkers

Another travel themed page this month, this time for the Kraft+ challenge blog. Using some pics from a weekend trip to Hong Kong in November with my youngest. Yes, it can be done, we had 3 very full days of fun. The flights are not much longer than the train from our place to Sydney, which is easy done for just a weekend, so I thought "why not?".
Eddy had not been so it was his turn. He had a blast hanging out with Mick and Tania's boys and experiencing a different world despite having a nasty head cold the entire time. He was so distracted by his surroundings he completely ignored his headaches and snotty nose for the most part, what a trooper!

The challenge was to use map paper, a kraft base, and travel theme.
I printed out a map of Hong Kong as a reference to places we saw and used some Bazzill Swiss Dot kraft card for the base.

My one challenge page for the month!

Hopefully, with school holidays coming up and life slowing down a bit, I might get a few more done next month. I kinda need to get back into it and learn how to have fun with scrapbooking again.
This was inspired by the November challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff.

Requirements - Map paper, travel themed pics, something handmade (Charm's Creations doiley embellishment to which I have added colour.)
The title is a New Release from WoW (not loaded to the shop yet) which I painted and misted, and the arrow is also a WoW chippy.

Catching up!!

OMG it's been a long time since I posted! There is so much to share that I'm not sure where to start. Let's see...

Still time to get in on this one, post your creation to the Wow FB page.

My Triple Treat challenge

And then there is my final, leaving post for Gauche Alchemy. I am gonna miss those awesome girls! I spent 3 years creating with them and felt it was time to move over and make room for some fresh creativity.
So the steampunk themed November challenge is my last. Still time to get in on this one too, post your creation here.
This is mine, there are more pics and details if you follow the link above.

And in amongst everything I had a trip to Hong Kong with my youngest. An opportunity to hang out with a long time friend and his young family, see the sights and catch up on several years worth of each other's lives.

Yum cha at the Sai Kung waterfront

A visit to Monkey Mountain, Tai Po Rd.

After a walk through the Sai Kung Old Town.

The amazing cable car ride to the top of the mountain to see..........

The Big Buddha

Mick & Me

We also did The Peak, the ramps, Mon Kok markets, and had a special visit to Mick's place of work to see the Cathay flight simulators, Ed's eyes nearly popped out with excitement! It was only 3 days but we packed heaps into it and had a fantastic time. Many thanks to our gracious hosts xxxx.

Well I think that's enough for one post, I'll put up a challenge page I managed this month shortly.
