Broadband is back - woo hoo!!

Man oh man, I missed my broadband. Dial up is just soooo slow! Oh well, whinge over. It's back and all is good again.

So I have completed a few layouts in the last few weeks, and amazingly enough I have made it through to Round 11 of SYTYCS - crazy, I know and now the pressure is on. Here are my Round 10 entries :
This first layout was for the "Music to your ears" challenge. Inspiration had to be taken from a CD cover (or record cover, etc) and I used the album "Polyserena" by George for my inspiration. Secondly, the lyrics of a song had to be incorporated into it somewhere, somehow. I've used lyrics from the song "Black & Gold" by Sam Sparro, which is a fav at the moment on my ipod - very boppy and it definitely has a catchy tune :-P

The second challenge was called "Lift It" and for this we had to choose a layout by one of the Scraptac Design Team girls and scraplift it. I've scraplifted Dionne Molina's layout entitled "Sweet Traditions" which appeared in one of the last issues of For Keeps Creative Scrapbooking, I think...hmmm... Anyway, I flipped the photo placement and put my twist on it. I'm actually really happy with this one - I LOVE all the colour, and the funky BG range "Offbeat" was fun to play with. Thanks for the inspiration Dee!!

Next up are a couple of layouts based on the fabulous KI Memories Sheer Delights - sorry the images aren't fantastic but they are very tricky to photograph :-P..well, for me anyhow! These Sheer Delights are available over at Kiti Q for only $3.50 a sheet. Why not have a play? They also make great mini album covers as they are thicker and stronger than a transparency but with a lot of the same effect. Fun, fun!! Check out Dan's and/or Vita's blog for more inspiration using these sheers.

And lastly is just a layout I pulled together quickly with a really large photo that I've had sitting in my stash for ages, so decided it was time I actually scrapped it. I've used this layout to list all the different names we call our Lana Girl (including that one :-P he he). With a photo that big, keeping everything else really simple, I feel, is the best way to go.

That's it for scrapping for me over the last couple of weeks. I'm about to get off of this computer and get started on my Round 11 layouts - new fun challenges are up so I better get cracking as I head off the South Aust at the crack of dawn on Friday and don't get back to Monday arvo which is right near deadline..crazy pressure!!

Sydney Papercrafts was fantastic fun. Nikala and Janine were such a laugh to hang around with, and we had an awesome afternoon/evening in Darling Harbour. Will post some photos soon, although I didn't actually take many, having two photographers with me, I felt a little silly with my little snapshot camera next to the girls with their DSLR's and big lenses :-P lol...we had fun though.

Ok, I'm off to scrap.

Thanks for stopping by!!
