Life in the Slow Lane: BACK AT CAMP!

Saturday, 14 July 2012


You may remember that I mentioned in THIS POST that I was attending (a virtual) Summer Camp over at SCRAP FRIENDZY.....then proceeded to go AWOL, due to my visitors. This week I got back to camp, and got these two layouts done.

For the first one I used was SHIMELLE'S  most recent STARTING POINT

scrapbooking starting points

The Camp Friendzy challenge was for the 'Nature' Badge:

To meet this challenge, complete a LO with SOME KIND of NATURE! It can be flowers, leaves, butterflies, birds, etc.

There are flowers and a butterfly on the LO

This beautiful metallic embellishment was handmade...and sent to me by the very talented MITRA
....I have been waiting for just the right LO to use it on!

For the second LO, I used this sketch from PAGE DRAFTS (which I rotated to fit my picture).....

and the 'GONE FISHING' challenge from Camp Friendzy:

For this challenge you will have to have 3 elements on your LO. First there needs to be some twine or string to use to fish with, second something needs to be tied (it's up to you if you want to actually tie a worm on or not:lol: ), third you need to have some blue on there for the water.

There is twine inside the scalloped circles, a tied bow on the button and lots of blue!

I am also linking up to THE SCRAPBOOKING SOIREE over at Jennifer's blog.

Hope you're having a good weekend...come rain or shine!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  3. ooo what lovely pages! I love love love the yellow flower and the metal embeelie!

  4. Great pages. Love the 2nd one :)

  5. I love these layouts, especially how you mixed patterned papers!

  6. So glad to see you've found some creative time! Great job with the starting point - I used that one, too.

  7. Their challenges are hilarious!! Love the 'Gone Fishing' idea. The photo in the first layout is just gorgeous.

  8. These challenges really seem to suit you Alison! Lovely stuff.

  9. Cool pages. I really love that yellow flower and the metal piece on the first one!

  10. Love the layouts Alison!! I especially love that flower with the lace over it :) I've not used Shimelle's starting points for a bit, I might have to look up a challenge :)

  11. Love both of these layouts! The colors and patterns are so lovely! Glad to see you back at camp. I love it over there, and am so grateful for you introducing me to the sight!

  12. So glad to have you back at camp!! These LO's are so pretty. I can see why you hoarded that metal piece - and so perfect here!! ~ Blessings

  13. Great job Alison! Glad you are getting some scrapping done amidst all your visitors and I'm enjoying watching you try out so many new techniques and ideas on your pages this year!!

  14. Very productive Alison! Love that first one especially, the colours are just fab.

  15. It certainly looks like Scrap Friendzy is leading to some fun layouts. The one of you and your DD is terrific--I love mother/daughter layouts! And thanks for the PageDrafts link--that's an amazing design (I wonder if I can make it work for digital?).

  16. Thhey both look great Alison. Like how you showed both your inspirtion and what you were supposed to do. Pardon the typos I'm still getting used to the ipad keyboard

  17. Both pages are so pretty, but I LOVE the second layout, it's so fun and energetic! I especially like the detail that you've punched the paper strips at the bottom, it's such a nice extra thing to look at!

    Thanks so much for joining in with my Scrapbooking Soiree! x
