Life's a Beach - SID February Sketch

 January has been a hectic month with the schools starting for the new year, and me teaching for a month, however I did find time to complete the February sketch for Stick it Down.
I created a double page layout of my son, Corne Burger, fishing his second rock and surf international against South Africa.  The photos were taken by my daughter, over the 3 days that they fished.
Corne was a member of the under 16 Namibian Rock and Surf team.  He was only 13 years old when the tournament took place. He came 5th overall and his team ended second.

Some close ups:


Paper used is from the Celebr8 Hello Summer Collection.
I added in real shells, fishing net and beach sand.

Stick it Down is doing a collaboration with  Scrap the Boys Blog and I have combined my sketch with their theme:

Cherished Moments - Clock

Now that Christmas has come and gone I can share some of the gifts I made for my family.

My youngest son, Devon, has always wanted a clock for his bedroom.  He is crazy about fishing, so I decided to make it a sea theme.
 Close up of the title!

Paper used is from the Celebr8 Sea Treasures Collection.
The clock and chipboard title are also from Celebr8.
I also used a lot of shells and sand picked up on the beaches of Namibia, 
as well as some hooks, line, etc from my sons tackle box.

Cherish Yesterday, Dream of Tomorrow, Love Today - SID January Sketch

This is my first layout for the Stick It Down Design Team.
The sketch was quite a challenge as I am used to sketches that include loads of photos. I am also not a huge fan of big open spaces....but here is my take on it:

These photos have a very special place in my heart.
My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, after receiving chemotherapy and having a mastectomy she is now in remission.
Every year all the ladies in my family (mom, sister, cousin, daughters, granddaughters) attended an annual ladies day cancer breakfast.  At this breakfast we celebrate the survivors,the victims, the support teams, and the ones who were not so lucky.

My beautiful mom
 The family together and mom's support team!
 The embellishment cluster at the bottom of the page!

Paper and chipboard title used is part of Celebr8's Picture Perfect Collection.
I fussy cut the protea's and added some dimensional glaze she to make them pop a little!!

Life is a grand adventure - Let's Scrap Sketch 10-15-17

This is the second layout created for my friend, celebrating her son Craig's life.

Once again I used the Celebr8 Life's Journey Collection 
and added in chipboard filmstrips, bunting and arrows. 

The Ranger Enamel Accents worked perfectly with this layout!

A few close-ups:

I tried to make the two boys layouts similar, as they will be hanging on the wall together. 
Here is Kyle's layout!

Cherished Moments Kyle - Let's Scrap Sketch 10-1-17

What a challenge this sketch was.  
A friend gave me printed photos of her son to scrap.....I normally print my photos to the sizes I this created a bit of a challenge for me!

I used the Life's Journey Collection from Celebr8 and added in chipboard and metal gears to give the page a more masculine feel.  

All the little sayings on the paper were so appropriate for what my friend wanted.
She wanted me to make a layout celebrating her son's life!!

My son, Devon has been begging me to create a layout for him of his rugby games in 2016, however I didn't have very many photos.

So I used the left side of the Let's Scrap Sketch 9-1-17
which I flipped and rotated!

The paper used is from Scrap Collections. 
All the chipboard embellishments (rugby balls and title) are from Enmarc.
