'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:

Thank you for stopping by and your comments are very much appreciated :-)
Take care till next time!

ALWAYS - Paper Bag Mini Album

I watched a youtube video by Steffi Miller (Live with Prima) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDCIuB8lH6I
and so I wanted to make one too ;-)

The album consists of 2 paper bags, patterned papers and embellishments. I really enjoyed making this mini album!
I used brown paper bags which I painted black. The patterned papers are from a very old Prima range and so are the flowers and metal stamp embellishment. 
Other embellishments are from Enmarc Crafts and are listed below. The Roman Brackets and the word 'always' were sprayed with Dazzles : Anthracite. I added black Stickles and Glaze to the word as well. I used the Alpha Disk to create a spinner to add to the mini album.
