June Scrap the Girls

This month's challenge was a colour challenge. I had some photos picked out which were perfect and then I used those for my Design pages instead. So last night I chose another photo (from my small stash of girlie photos...thank goodness for 6 nieces since my only DD doesn't like me taking her photo!) and luckily inpsiration found me in time!
This is the colour combo required:
And here's what I did with it:

Isn't she cute??!?! Even if she is a first class dag!
My scanner has chopped off a couple of edges. They're actually there IRL (I went to a lot of trouble to punch the overlapping pp's and line them up so I KNOW they are there!)

Thanks for looking.

Peak Charles

We ere going to go camping this weekend, but between kids sports and the weather, we decided on a day trip to Peak Charles which is close to where DH grew up. He last climbed Peak Charles with his family in 1985. He's been wanting to do it again ever since (well everytime we drive past the turn off!) Finally we took a few friends yesterday and off we went. Luckily we didn't know quite how big it was until we got there, or we may not have attempted it!
Each time we thought we were nearly at the top we went up another section only to find another mountain in front of us. You can't see the peak from the bottom so we were really disillusioned! Luckily the kids ran ahead and were at the top well before us. (We mums thought the dads were keeping up! Note to self: less talking means more energy to climb!) once we caught up tot he dads and they told us the kids were up top unsupervised we had to push ourselves to get up there. So many times we could have stopped but i didn't trust anyone else to take photos for me...I needed to see it for myself! It was soo worth it.

And since the Challenge this week at  iheartfaces is "From a Distance", I thought it appropriate to enter a photo from yesterday (my first time entering!)
It was hard to choose, but I think this one probably sums it up best!

Better head off to my niece's disco themed 7th birthday party now (I'm not invited but I am allowed to deliver the disc of dance music she requested and take my camera!)...thanks for looking!

Some challenges

This weekend was my turn to set the challenge at Countrypapercraft.
I've designed  a sketch and a page to go with it. This was my sister's favourite photo of my niece so it's fairly special. I hope I did it justice.
Here is my Kraft it Up Challenge for this month (a bit earlier this!)

And these are using the June design Kit at Country Papercraft

Thanks for stopping by...
