I used photographs of the children taken earlier this month, on the beach in Sussex and it felt so 'summery' to me, though I did not use typical beach tones but went with red and blue as my key colours. I loved the Sassafrass patterned paper that is used across the middle and also as the scalloped edging and I was in stash busting mode as I used up some embellishments that have sat unopened for too long! I was pleased with the final result, called 'Spades in the Sand' and hope that you will use this great sketch to create a page of your own to share with us over at Scrappin' Silhouettes

All the photographs were printed at 6 x 4 but I altered the size/shape of them all in the end. The title 'the O2' is also cut from a photograph that I took. I used acetate to form a circle over the circular picture and also as the 'ring' around the square photo. Generally I am not a big fan of black but it worked really well with the images and with evoking the sense of being in the darkened arena looking out at the acts.... in case you are wondering this was from the X factor tour in March... I got 4 tickets for Christmas and yes I am that sad!
Due to my slowness at completing this LO, I am too late to enter it into the challenge but please check back tomorrow as my first layout for the Scrappin' Silhouettes design team will be posted, I hope I don't let them down!

This weeks prize is sponsored by the Crafty Purple Frog and the DT got to have a play with a couple of her Fantasy designs. They are really easy to use, just print, cut and make up your pyramage or decoupage...simple!
Initially I found the theme a little difficult this week so I took inspiration from the Fantasy drawing on the decoupage I made, which features a purple cat. It made me imangine the world with purple pets and I used an image of my mum's beautiful cat 'Kitty' and turned him purple!
What do you think??? Definitely out of my comfort zone but great fun to make!
Please visit the challenge at Scrapping with I did it Creations and join in the challenge to win the fab prize (I have spotted a pig image on the Crafty Purple Frog site which is gorgeous.... you know me and my love of pigs!). The other members of the design team have come up with some fabulous ideas to give you inspiration, go on over nad check it out!

The DTwere lucky enough to be given the gorgeous Oriental Beauty Papers to work with. These are available online and there is a fab 30% off sale at the moment so they are only $1.40! Pop over to the store and have a look at all the fab digi goodies that are available.
I printed the papers on heavy weight linen white paper to give a little more texture and used them to matt the photo, make a tag (embossed using my cuttlebug), form the patterned background and as an accent/border along the right side. They coordinate perfectly with the photo of DD and one of her best friends waiting for the St Georges Day parade to start, in their Scout uniforms.
Please go over to Scrapping with I Did It Creations and join in as we are sponsored by Dezinaworld and the winner of the challenge will get £5 to spend online in their store.
Good luck everyone xxx
