Layout Central

I'm really happy with the amount of layouts I've made so far this year - I think it's 24 or 25 - and it seems I've finally arrived at an acceptable amount of time it takes to produce a layout. It's a combination of sketching and planning in advance, knowing my stash much better now it's sorted and tidied logically, and generally being more aware of placement, colour matching and style.

In fact, I'm on such a roll that I need to post 2 layouts today - a Punky Scraps one and a Creative Scrappers one. Get me!

First up, the Punky Scraps challenge site had its number 19 challenge this week, and since I'm now on the DT, I had to play along. In just 19 challenges the site has gained over 200 followers - it's on a roll too. The number 19 challenge was to be inspired by this photo:

And this is my layout:

If you want to play along for a prize, go to the Punky Scraps site and get scrapping.

Next up, the number 159 sketch from Creative Scrappers got a hold of me on Friday. The sketch:

And my layout:

I journalled about what I most like when I'm feeling under the weather - my man, my dog, my dressing gown, the sofa, a cup of tea, and maybe a film. I actually put this page up on the Scrapbook Challenges site under the ABCs of Me challenge for the letter U: the challenge was to scrap about when you're feeling under the weather.
