Getting my scrap on at the crop

I had a very productive time at the monthly EK Craft and Crop  and completed the pirate and circle lo  and them came home and completed the Beach Babe lo. These are all using photographs that used to be part of photo montages in clip frames. This was before I had ever heard of scrapping. The frames eventually fell apart and I had a pile of very random photos - none of which have dates or places on them and I have been racking my brain to remember exact details about them.
The Beach Babe lo used the UKS February Simple Recipe of citrus orange, fuschia pink, turquoise and red with mists and buttons. I misted a TH Resist page with orange/pink dylusions and then used blue/green on white to make the central panel. I punched flowers from the waste and added bling to their centres. The ribbon, flowers and button continue the colour theme.
The second page was made up of the blue/green card stock and then a page from my stash that was just too bright to use all together so I cut it up and used Heather's circle dies.

 The last page was for the weekly challenge and had to include red and black, stamping (Dylusions fab skull) and movement courtesy of a movable journalling tab. I borrowed the bunting punch and in a charity sale to raise money for Help the Heroes bought the scrabble tiles.
At the crop the lovely Heather made me think about journalling on los as she pointed out that in 100 years time (or less) people could look at the photos and have no idea about who, what, why, place etc so I am going to try and remember to include journalling on all my los in the future.


  1. Looks like you had fun - three fab and quite different LOs!

  2. These are great and I just love the colour combinations

  3. Great LOs. I agree about journaling, I don't do enough either!

  4. These are great. My favourite's the pirate themed one - gotta love skulls!
