Scrap Africa has a beautiful sketch challenge on right now:
Here is my interpretation of it with my grandson Kieran Zwanenburg using My Mind’s Eye Cut and Paste papers:
There are still a few days to play along with our sketch at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge. We are very excited to be back for our first challenge after taking a break since July. The team has contributed some awesome layouts interpreting the sketch, and we have some awesome entries into the challenge!!
Tonight I have a very fun, busy layout of a very fun, busy boy where I incorporated 4 challenges from around blogland to share with you. No wonder I am tired!!!
Craft-Szafa’s challenge is to use a frame – so I used a sweet translucent frame around one of the photos I used of my grandson Kieran Zwanenberg.
Sketchabilities’ challenge is to use their sketch #109 as inspiration. I did so! Karan’s sketches are always delicious!
Scrap Africa’s challenge is to use chipboard that you’ve altered. I altered the swooping large arrow under the photos using various acrylic paints and a black marker to darken the edges.
Scraps & Pieces Emporium’s challenge was to use the word NEW in the layout. I used the word in my title.
I used some K&Company embellishments and papers, acrylic paint, brush marker, Sassafrass borders and Making Memories frame and acrylic heart in creating this layout:
BREAKING NEWS – We are re-opening the challenge blog at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge and are looking for design team members.

Here is a layout of my son Chris Pennington, who dressed up as the Nintendo character Ness from the game Earthbound for Hallowe’en this year. He had some fun going to the game store just down from his place, where people stopped by that evening dressed up as game characters. He did a great job of the costume, and of dyeing the hat he wore to go with it.
I used the Canadian paper line Bizous (BZoo) for the black strip, Crate Paper Farmhouse Collection Apple Pie for the yellow strip, and Cathie Allan and Canadian Scrapbooker’s Super Stock for the white background. I made this layout for Scrap Africa, whose challenge this month is to use a recycled item in a layout. My recycled item is the oval coaster I used as the base for the title of the layout. I also used the January 2014 Sketchy sketch made by Sue Sykes for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine as inspiration.
Don’t forget to come out and play along with our two challenges this month at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge.
Scrap Africa’s challenge this month is to use hearts as the main accent on a layout. Here is my take on their challenge featuring my daughter Mary, son Chris, husband Scott and I at my dear friend Janice Caves-Frankland’s wedding in October 2009.
I am also entering this layout in the LOVE challenge at Get Creative and at Scrap and Grab. There is no doubt – I love my family!!
… and the details were fun in the water that day for my son Chris, when we were at Northern Lodge in July 2008.
I created this layout for Scrap Africa – whose challenge is to use postage stamps, Get Creative – who had a sketch challenge which I used to inspire this layout, and the White with 1 layout which was to use the colours red and blue with white.
Here’s the layout:
