Pixels and Paper challenge blog

I came by this blog Pixels and Paper via Mary Bennets blog and I just loved the challenge.

The challenge is to take inspiration from this photo
Thought of a photo that my daughter had taken when she was at high school and doing photography
She had wanted her brother and a friend to pose for some photos and when she developed her film, they hadn't worked, so she had to do the whole thing again. Well Michael was not happy...sulked and carried on as you can see in the photo...but it actually made it look better!

I had to scan the photo in so it is not good quality
 a few close ups

Thanks for stopping by

Hi...just popped in to let you know about this

at the Boy meets Girl challenge blog

About a Boy and About a Girl challenge blogs are combining .

Hello everyone, welcome to Boy Meets Girl.  This blog is a combination of our About a Boy & About a Girl blogs.  I am having a lot of things on my personal plate right now so I am having to do some rearranging of my blogs.  So instead of doing away with them completely, I combined them into one.  I do hope that you will come back to play with us. We will post 2 challenges per month.  The AAB challenges will post on the 1st of each month and will run until the 15th of the month and the AAG challenges will post on the 15th of each month and run until the 30th of the month.  You are more than welcome to play along with both challenges.  Just remember AAB is boys photos only and AAG is girls only.  Again welcome to Boy Meets Girl. Please take a moment to join our blog to be registered for our giveaway!

The first challenge will be up on Oct 1st, so come along and join the fun!

123 challenge blog - Sept challenge

Hi everyone...had a beautiful Spring rain last night....lovely way to fall asleep!

This month's challenge is
 which I am rather partial too!

Before I show my layout ........I urge you to check out these challenges and join in at 123 challenge
If there are not more entries this blog will close in December and the challenges are so good.

Well...I was doing the dishes and I thought...gosh that paper towelling is pretty....butterflies....get me in every time! LOL
So this morning I used Viva paper towelling on this layout

I have misted around the edges and cut some butterflies from the paper... I love how soft and fluffy they look

The pink flowers are from the Trinket Track and I am in love with cheese cloth!

The blue dots are nail varnish...have been wanting to try this for a while

I used SWEET in my journaling
 I took Glacia to the playground tonight ( after the feeding the duck ritual) and NO will not swing properly....exclaims Nan don't push me....I'm scared....I guess she will grow out of that!

Glacia is having a sleep over tonight and I got some beautiful photos of her and I must say I haven't been kissed this much in ages!!! LOL
And I had forgot how much 3 year olds can talk and how many times they can say why!!

Show us Your Stuff Sept challenge

The challenge over at Show us Your Stuff this month is to use Red and White and I found this paper and knew exactly what I wanted to do. I have been waiting for the chance to scrap this photo of all my Grand Children together, but I changed it to black and white.

I made these tags to put my sayings on

The stars are cork (from the Trinket Track) which I have painted and I cut all those little arrows out of fiddly!

This is the first photo I have with them all together and they all play together so well.
