My Scrapping Mojo has Returned!

Thank goodness! My scrapping mojo went walkabout this month, but I have found it again! Yay!

I have been busy this weekend doing some of the Scrapbook Savvy Challenges.

Here is my example for the Savvy Sketch challenge for June:

I have used:

* Dream Street patterned papers
* Grungeboard alphas
* Bazzill Cardstock
* Ribbon, brads, ribbon slide, staple.
* Carolee's creations letter stickers
* Versacolor ink - "Seafoam".
* Tim Holtz Distress Ink - "Walnut Stain".
* Plain chipboard.
* Black ZIG Writer.

Check out the monthly sketch challenges at Scrapbook Savvy - they're great and you could win yourself a $25.00 Scrapbook Savvy Voucher!

Here is my example for Mel's Savvy Scraplift for June:

This month we had to scraplift this layout by Kerryn Fry (one of my fellow design team members).

Kerryn is Kaisercraft's biggest fan, so I simply had to use Kaisercraft patterned papers and embellishments in her honour! LOL!

I have used:

* Kaisercraft patterned papers
* Bazzill Cardstock
* Kaisercraft Flowers
* Kaisercraft Pearls
* American Crafts Buttons
* Heidi Swapp Ghost letters
* Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks
* Tim Holtz Distress Ink - "Walnut Stain".
* Carolee's creations letter stickers
* Lace, Brown ZIG writer, Jeni Bowlin scalloped note card.

I inked the ghost letters with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks - and it gave such a gorgeous effect! Here is a close up:

Well, that's it from me for today! I will be back in the next few days with some more layouts to share!

Bye for now!
