Never Never Give Up! Just Do It!

We recently had a holiday up north and my DH has been dreaming of a microlite flip over the Victoria Falls for many years. Well, this time he actually did it! He said it was incredible and the view from the sky was just breathtakingly awesome!
I used the bi-weekly sketch from Let's Scrap Sketches for my Layout.

As you can see, I did not use the sketch as is, but rotated it to suit my needs. Here is my take on the sketch:

I used some more of my very old stash - Simple Stories : Urban Traveller. 

A few close-ups:
For the green background I used a watermark ink pad, stamp and stencil and for the 'droplets' I used Enmarc Craft's Arty Stencil : Bubble Wrap, Finnabair Gold Crackle Paste and ultra fine glitter.

White Board embellishments and other products from Enmarc Crafts:

Happy Crafting till next  time!

Summer Fun Blog Hop

Hi Crafty Friends.

Today I am joining in on the fun over at Let's Scrap Sketches! They have a super fun Blog Hop on running from the 1st of July to the 7th of July 2016 and there are LOADS of yummy prizes to win!

I had to take a photo of my workspace/room as it is whether tidy or not! My craft room's light need to be fixed, so I am working on the breakfast nook table at the moment. I am busy making cards for my SIL's shop (finished approx. 80 cards and still a couple more to go), so no time for scrapping! Hopefully I will be able to participate in this week's STUNNING sketch challenge.

Here is a pic of my workspace:

Now I am off to visit all of the participating blogs and will catch you later ;-)

Thank you for stopping by and your comment is much appreciated.
Take care till next time:-)

'Bak & Brou by Ouma Joey' : 6-15-16 - Let's Scrap Sketch

It's really been quite a while since I have scrapped  . . . no mojo and all these mixed-media-single-photo-layouts all over the www were very intimidating as I like to scrap double pages and my page must tell it's own little story.

I also haven't done any of the Let's Scrap Sketch challenges for many many moons . . .

I chose to turn the sketch upside down :-)

So, here's my take on the latest challenge:
The photos are of my DGD3 who visited her other Granny and they baked cupcakes together. . .  or shall I rather say, the little one did what little ones do ;-)
I have sooooo much patterned papers in my stash and used a very old collection which suited best with my photos.
The chipboard embellishments are by Enmarc Crafts and were sprayed with Enmarc Dazzles : Bermuda, Summer Fields and Lemon Meringue and some were glazed after the Dazzles were dry. Then a few of the paper flowers were sprayed with Dazzles : Misty Maroon.
Other embellishments (ribbon, beads, half pearls, paper flowers) are from my stash.

Here are a few close-ups:

Take care till next time!
