Crafteire and PaperPlay Challenge

Are you going to Crafteire?
I am, and this year, I'll be also teaching! I'm very excited about it, Kate & Mireille have just announced the classes, so go and check it out.

I'll be posting the material needed for my classes soon. Perhaps even some sneak peaks... :-)

This is my belated entry for the last Thursday's PaperPlay Challenge.

I loved the idea, pink & green are one of my favourite colour combos, and who doesn't love ribbons and blossom? The photo is a bit dark (I took it in around midday yesterday but it was pretty dark here, what can I do?) and no amount of Photoshop could fix it not the next photo, sorry.

Another one I made about the day we went bowling. The photos are very blurry, but I just love the photo of my son carrying the ball, he looks so small in comparison. All the photos, journaling and the circle were printed together, I only had to stick onto a piece of cardstock and add letter stickers. Easy peasy. Like the previous one, I used a template for printing the photos, this one is by Jessica Sprague, a CK freebie, the previous I've done myself. Templates are like digital sketches, but very very easy to use. If you wanna start digital or hybrid scrapbooking, send me a note and I'll give you links for a couple of tutorials and you can have page finished in a matter of minutes.

It is the first time ever that I scrapbooked an event on the same day it happened. I should do it more often, it is so much easier when all the memories are still fresh in my mind!

That top one is lovely, Elisa, the neutral cardstock is so good with the pinks and greens. And I like the idea of the journalling being in a circle on the bowling one, ties in so well. Didn't get time the other day to say how much I liked your angel in spectacles, too.

Both wonderful layouts. Love the pink and green, the patterned paper is gorgeous. The journalling along the side looks great. I've just gotten some packs of those blossoms, can't wait to use them :)

The colours on the Bowling Day layout are so bright and funky. Hard to believe it's digital.
