Colour me Scrappy April 1st

Hi...a very quick post while the Grand children and Pop cook tea.....YAH!
I even have a menu with dessert sounding  pretty good....'Jack and Gemma's layered delight"

Well back to this challenge and a fantastic colour scheme!

I decide to do a layout of my other Grand Son, Kerris
The photos where taken the other weekend when we looked after him.....gorgeous cheeky little fellow!

Lots of washi tape...the colour is more aqua

I love using gelatos to colour plain alphas and it is so easy to outline them too

Take a look at the other Design Team examples...beautiful work
Check them out HERE

Have Easter everyone...please be safe

ARTastic April challenge

Time for the mid-month DT reveal at ARTastic

                    Criteria is anything goes but your photos must depict crazy antics, silliness or loads of fun.  

“This challenge reminded straight away of my son on his 13th birthday. We went away to do fishing (his passion) and I had smuggled a sponge cake, cream, jelly and beaters in the caravan, for a surprise cake. Good old Michael to all our amazement....went and stuck his face in his serving of cake! At the time I can’t remember whether I thought it was funny or if I was cheesed off....considering all my smuggling efforts! Now I just think......typical Michael! “

Lucky the photos were okay, except for the one of his face covered in whipped cream!

I had these red plastic squares on my desk ( the frame for the caps for those cap guns) so I have based the rest of the layout around squares

 Hope none of you got tricked on April fools day...I did!

Purple Pumpkin April

This sketch at Purple Pumpkin caught my eye, but instead of using the triangles I tried something different

I have coloured in the sunglasses on my background paper to give the same effect
The red ones are mounted

I've used the old Dynamo for my journaling and strips of washi tape (mounted on white cardstock)

This photo was actually taken today by my daughter and she emailed it to me....Ha Ha ....she knows not to trust her mother!

And finally
