Some Challenges CONQUERED!!!

Yay! Interestingly, I've been pushing through a feeling of not
wanting to scrap. And I think I've reverted to more 'simple' & 'classic'
scrapping. These I just 'went with the flow'.
Anyways, you can see for yourselves!
Simply could NOT go past this mood board! Utilised the colours
& the beach theme. Stayed away from the red!
 Oh, I had fun with some bg work. Stamping little blue bubbles
& the 'Life's A Beach' saying & flicking some white & yellow ink around!
 Then I had fun layering a pile of bits up. Thanks Mitra, Jo T & Jo R for your
 contribution to Lizzy's Scrap Collection! 
 Created my own little idea of a PL card to do a bit of
different style journaling  on. LOVE that flair from Happy Scatters.
Which is also my hand crafted piece - along with the little bird, which
 was sent from a Pocket Letter mate. And I cut the 'look' with
my Brother Scan N Cut machine. My handwriting!
 And my whole page:
Then I decided to tackle a double page. 
More of Ollie. But Ollie needs more of LOs doing!
And here is my take:
The big white circles are ink swooshed around. There are
 a range of photos from Oct & Nov. I've used some red bits
sent to me by Sandra S...... red is not a 'go to' colour for me!
She was challenging me to use it last year. These 
are the 'left overs'!!!

 The journaling was about how we called Ollie 'chuba buba' when he
 was little...but now he's crawling...well, it's all turned into muscle &
that baby fat, sadly, is going away..... 
That's it from me. I hope these may spark some ideas
for you guys to scrap...maybe do a double if you haven't
for a while??!!!
Lizzy ♥♥♥


  1. Wow - simple and classic looks AMAZINGLY DETAILED AND FAB to me Lizzy!!! Both of these truly made me smile! j.

  3. Oh wow Lizzy....kudos for that awesome double page. It is gorgeous...I wish I can swoosh ink around so neatly that it falls into a circle :) Your single page multi photo page is just as beautiful. I am also in a bit of a funk where scrapping is concerned...the month break was too long and now I am struggling to get back into the groove xx

  4. Oh!!! Lizzy!!! Indeed you have conquered !!! These pages are FAB!!! And I am so glad that you joined in at ScrapMuch? :-) especially with a double:-) And most of all I am so happy for you feeling your mojo is back!!! YAY!!! Have a beautiful Sunday today my dear friend ♡ Anna xo

  10. Havn't wanted to scrap!!! That's like saying bees don't like honey! Still many of us have had those little spasms and recovered, or NOT, in my case. One layout over the last 6 months of so. But to your work - going with the flow seems to have done the trick. Love the stamping on the beach scene with that cute bubba in the water and fab double as well. Love the touch of red and what a good way to get multiple photos done. :D

  11. HI Lizzy! These look wonderful... love the beachy one, and wowee Ollie is crawling!! great back ground details. and love the double.. cant remember the last time I did a double.. great sketch.. and thanks for your letter i received.. will open it tomorrow!!

  12. Fantastic pages, Lizzy, you certainly can't tell you weren't in the mood to scrap!

  14. I can see why you didn't move past that mood board...it's stunning! Love the page you created too...so cute and love the styling! Your double pager is a beaut too....love the photies and the paint circles.

  15. Loved the beachy page..teal ,blue with touches of yellow woderful bg work and the pl card has turned out cute ! Double pager s real classic with pops of red n navy color combo !The arrangment of photos look very nice !

  16. I absolutely ADORE both layouts that you made, Lizzy! The 2-pager is amazing - it's been so long since I've made one and that's all I used to make when I first started scrapping!!!
