With this one we had to have a small title down the right side of the page, journalling is to be about what tradition we have and what that means to us and the journalling had to be all around the edge of the page.
We don't have a lot of traditions and the only one I could think of was having as Easter egg hunt for the girls each year and sprinkling powder about so the girls could see that the Easter Bunny had been by the paw prints in the powder. It's good to have traditions like this because it's good for the kids to believe in the Easter Bunny, Santa and the Tooth Fairy, and that's what I have written around the edge of the page.
The 2nd challenge had a list of things we had to include on the page. I just hope that I have interpretted it properly. We had to use a stamp or rub-on, the word Joy or Christmas, red/green, ribbon or fabric and an envelop or journal card.

We had to do a layout using mainly Autumn colours. It was quite hard to put together, so I grabbed the first photo I could find and this was it. This is Tony, when we went to Dubbo Zoo in September 2010 and I think it fitted in ok with the colours.

Flourish With A Bling are having a Christmas colour challenge this month with the usual colours and we have to add a neutral colour. We also have to use FWAB products, which I have with the flourish. It is the only one I have that looked any good on the challenge even though it's not the right colour for the layout.
I did this layout for Angie's sketch over at scrapnart. It was from a sketch and we had to stick to the colours stipulated, black, white, orange, yellow and grey. I think I have covered all the requirements.

I did this layout for Angies October sketch. I didn't read the instructions properly at first, to think of the colours used so I had to rethink my plans and this is what I came up with. I'm happy with the finished layout. http://scrapnartjourney.blogspot.com/2011/10/october-sketch-challenge-with-twist.html

This is my layout for Dizzy Izzy's October sketch on facebook. I tried to use up some of my scraps and I think it turned out quite well. Hopefully my friends will like it as the one with the most likes/views will be the winner at the end of the month.

This is my attempt at the inspiration challenge for October. I tried to stick to the colour scheme but it wasn't easy. I found it really hard to put the colours together. I wanted to use this photo of the girls and their granddad digging for yabbies, when they stayed with us. Mackenzie wanted to go fishing so we took them to the beach to dig for yabbies and Kenz and granddad caught a nice flathead out in the gutters. http://scrapwithv.blogspot.com/2011/10/october-inspiration-challenge.html
I did this layout for scrapwithv's October sketch. It turned out pretty good. I used portrait photos instead of the landscape views as in the sketch, so I did a bit of filling in with the flourish and the vines and I'm happy with it. http://scrapwithv.blogspot.com/2011/10/october-sketch-challenge.html

This is my effort for the inspiration challenge over at scrapwithv. We were to draw inspiration from a picture of plates on and this is what I came up with, lots of circles. The title is from a song but I only had 1 rainbow so I made it singular instead of plural, with an s.

This is my layout for the September 1st sketch at scrapwithv. I didn't think I would have time to do any layouts this month as I'm sharing the babysitting of my 3 granddaughters with their other grandma while the parents are off overseas having a good time. I rushed to get this done last night before I pick the girls up, and I'm quite happy with the result. http://scrapwithv.blogspot.com/2011/09/its-september.html

I did this layout for Angie's September Sketch. I've kept to the sketch but have made it a bit bigger than the original and I think it turned out pretty good.http://scrapnartjourney.blogspot.com/2011/09/sketch-challenge-and-prize-is-back.html
This is what I did for the Southern Girls blog hop anniversary. We had to do a card/layout with layering. I used all circles layered on each other. Even though it's a christmas theme I didn't used christmas papers and it still came out ok. http://southerngirlschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/09/welcome-to-our-blog-hop.html

This is one I did for Challenge Heaven's sketch challenge. It's the only 5x7 photo I could find and it originally came out of a frame. It is Darren and Kirsten and was taken when Darren was home on leave from the Navy. I can't even think when it was taken, probably in 1997 or 1998.
I did this layout for Crafty sketches. I didn't quite like it when I was putting it together but I think the colours go well together and I'm reasonably happy with it.

This is my effort for the August Sketch over at scrapwithv http://scrapwithv.blogspot.com/2011/08/15th-august-sketch-challenge.html. I'm quite happy with the colours I chose and I enjoyed doing the layout.
I have attempted this layout for Sam's August Challenge over at Eye Candy Magic. The challenge is masking which I really don't have a clue on. I've used chalk on this one and the roses are, I HOPE! HOPE! HOPE! masked. http://samiammylifeinnotes.blogspot.com/p/monthly-challenge-here.html
