I'm playing along with a few challenges this month. Sometimes I feel I need the creative prompts these sites/blogs give me.

So today it's challenge #69 at Method Playground, which just so happened to be a scraplift challenge. (Speaking of which - won't you join us at XOXO this month?)

So here's what I pulled together after being inspired by the lovely layout we were to lift.

And I'm also happy to get another page done in my "Year in the Chair" album. Yes, maybe that's what I'll call it from now on? Obviously, this is one of the two photos from April. Moodle always has this slightly shocked look on her face, but at least Munchy knows how to play up to the camera :-)

As you can see, my collection for April was Paper Girl by The Girl's Paperie. Aren't these colours and patterns just so lovely and vintage? I loved them all so much, it was really hard to chose which side of the papers to use! Hopefully I'll be able to share my other April page with you tomorrow.

But, back to the challenge.......
I lifted the idea of putting all my photo/journaling/embellishments into one (smaller) square within my layout. And having my title along the side of my photo.

I'll show you what I mean.

This was the layout we were given to scraplift. It's seriously amazing isn't it?
Of course, you know me. I couldn't quite manage the minimalist look outside of that square. I can't help but add more things :-)

Also - don't forget about my own challenge to all you wonderful people who read my blog!!


  1. I did the first year in the chair too. I sincerely wish I'd continued it- only did the first year...and we've since given away that chair!
    The inspiration lo is fabulous- but I really enjoy your take on it. The way you combine all that lovely product to happy perfection perhaps. The way all that lovely product brings me right to that adorable picture- I think that may be it! :)

  2. I love your layout!!! Really stunning work!!! :D

  3. I enjoy the collage style and the oh so pretty color palette of this layout. Your little girls are too cute!

  4. This is really beautiful!! I love the colors. :)

  5. I love the original LO, and I love your take on it. I wonder if I will find the time to participate in this challenge this month, I never seem to have time to do challenges :-(( I just left you a comment on your "yellow challenge" post (I will definitely try and participate in that challenge!!!) telling you how impressed I am by your work and the amount of work you manage to finish monthly. I guess that's the downside of being such a slow scrapper. It takes me days to finish a LO!! I had hoped this would change in time, but so far it hasn't. Ah well, as long as I'm having fun, right??

  6. Love your take on the sketch. And I adore your date in the upper right. Thanks for playing on the Playground!

  7. What a cool idea! I wish I had pics like that :) And your layout is darling! Thanks for playing along with us.


Thanks for visiting my blog today. Come back again soon :-)
