Layout madness!

Wow I have been on a layout making bender the last couple of days!  I just can't get enough of them.  I have so many kits and all these photos just screaming to be scrapped, and now a new laptop to create them on!  The layout you see at the left was create especially for the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge - Clean and Simple.  And boy can I tell you was that a challenge!  I love to pile stuff on and fill up my pages, and for this challenge I just chose my one favourite photo from our trip to Movie World - White Christmas.  I love how the Christmas lights sparkle in the background and the wonder in Sophia's eyes as she watches the show from way up on her daddy's shoulders.  This show is the closest we'll ever come to a white Christmas with falling snow (other than travelling over seas) so I loved using this kit from Pickleberry Pop. Sketch from Pagemaps

Here's another layout created with a kit from Kate Hadfield.  Sketch used: Pagemaps
This was a fun layout to create, using Boutique Cute Doll elements and photos I took off my iPhone.  That's something I encourage you all to do - scrap those photos that are trapped in your phones!!  There are probably thousands, and they come up really nice when printed or used in digi-scrapping.  Just email them to your computer in their original size, otherwise they'll be too small and grainy.  Then add them to your layout at usual.  Many kiosks at Big W now print direct from your iPhone, so you don't have to transfer to USB and then fuss with them at the photo lab.
And this is our big funny guy Zeus - full of character, clumsy as and almost ONE!  Taking his photo is always full of fun cause he hates doing it.  He barks at the camera, tries to eat my ankles or arm, hugs me every opportunity he gets and slobbers on anything that sits still!  But I love him to bits.  He's such a beautiful German Shepherd with a gorgeous nature (just full of mischief) and very loyal both in his own yard and when we go out for walks.  Always watching the girls and making sure that they are safe. (Elements for layout from Kate Hadfield Designs & The Shabby Shoppe)

So there's your task for today - go get some photos either on your computer or phone and start scrapping!
