Last night Kimberley Garofolo Neddo kindly allowed the Mojo Holder DT to use her layout as inspiration. Kimberley is a much published scrapbooker and a member of the Sassafras design team. I struggled with my version of Kimberleys LO and am still not entirely happy with it. Here are the two LOs:

Last night the Mojo DT scraplifted a layout by Tammy Tutterow. Tammy is an American scrapper who has worked with some of the big names in scrapbooking - BasicGrey, Pink Paislee, Provo Craft, Sweetwater, Prima, and Glitz Designs. Her layout was absolutely gorgeous and incorporated 7 photos. Check out her blog it is truly inspiring. Here's Tammy's layout and mine.

Last weekend I went to my regular crop at Stamp Addicts. As well as the above layout I also created two more.

The first used some of the gorgeous My Little Shoebox papers. It involved lots of handcutting to create embelishments from some of the paper and I used photos taken last year of Lara helping to water the flowers in the garden. I used a collage template downloaded from the BHG Scrapbooks etc website to make a grid of photos.

The second layout was so simple. I took lots of photos of the house and garden when it snowed in February as part of the 365 A Photo a Day project and wanted to make a layout of them. I used some BasicGrey paper and placed a printed transparency on top. I used some really cool Prima Galaxy Stars to embelish plus some silver coloured ribbon, a few brads, a charm and a tag. So simple but I wanted to keep the focus on the photos. I used another collage template from BHG Scrapbooks etc on this layout too

Well I think that's all for now. Hopefully be back again next week.

Comic Relief - Red Nose Day

I'm watching the Comic Relief's Red Nose Day programmes whilst I make this post. LOL at Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French and friends doing Mama Mia. To mark the occasion I decorated some cakes for us to munch while we watch and yummy they are too.

Tonight the Mojo Holder DT scraplifted Marla Kress. Marla is a fabulous photographer as well as an inspiring scrapbooker. Marla's LO was very bright and funky - mine was more subdued.

Another week gone by and nothing really to blog about! So, as usual I'll just show you the LO I did for Mojo Holder this week. For challenge #101 the DT took inspiration from a really fabulous layout by Jill Godon. I loved the LO we took inspiration from but really struggled to produce a LO I was happy with which surprised me because the style of Jill's LO is probably very similar to my own style - very clean and uncluttered and so I didn;t think scraplifting it would be a problem. Boy was I wrong! Not 100% pleased with it but perhaps it will grow on me.
