Year in Review

Scrap and Sell South Africa Sketch 5
 When I saw this sketch the first thing that popped into my mind was YEAR IN REVIEW!!

As you all know most teenagers take so many selfies and photos on their cellphones, that I decided to make a layout for daughter Anneke, using all these photos!!

This sketch is the perfect sketch to use some of your scraps!

Each month was matted on cardstock making a rainbow effect.
 I added in loads of stickers and sayings!

Background paper is from Celebr8 Let's Chat Collection.

Its all Relative - SID March Sketch

The SID March Sketch challenged me a little, as I am not a fan of huge open white spaces on my scrapbook pages, however I made a plan, and added in some photos!
 I was inspired by the Penelope Dee Victoria collection, which focuses on family, and worked so lovely with my families photo-shoot photos from last year.

I flipped the sketch to suit the paper as I wanted to keep the flower clusters on the corners.
I did a lot of fussy cutting as I loved the protea's and flowers on the paper.
I also added in a little bit of stenciling to soften the lines.

I added in the brick chipboard and pearls to give the layout a little more dimension. 
 When the layout was finished I was still not happy with all the open white space, so I added in one large photo of the whole family together!
It just completed the layout!
Paper used is from the Penelope Dee Victoria Collection

Treasures of the Heart

 So this month I decided to scrapbook a little bit of my history! 
When on holiday last year, my uncle gave me a box of old photos of my childhood days and slowly but surely I am starting to scrap them.
This photo was taken 40 years ago of my mom, my sister and I and my dad!

I used the Stuck?! Sketches February Challenge Sketch #2.
I added in a lot of mixed media, with stamping, texture past and stenciling, inking, etc.
A few close ups:

Paper used is from Celebr8 Timeless Collection, and a few scraps of vintage paper I had laying around. I also used some metal charms, pearls, ribbon and flowers.

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!

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!
