blog fodder

I knew as soon as I saw Shimelle's sketch of the week a couple of weeks ago that Hipstamatic photos would be perfect. And then came the Beyond Blogging day in photos project, and I had the right photos. And I was headed out to a crop on Saturday night, so I had plenty of time to complete a layout. Which I did.

And then I went on to create two layouts based on the following week's sketch. Yep, three layouts in one night. The most I have created in one sitting for well over two years.

Paper is Crate Paper Good Neighbor collection. I like it because it's still bright colours, but slightly muted, working well with the outdoor photo.

Crate Paper again. We don't usually do egg hunts for Easter, but we started a new tradition this year of breakfast in the park (our new favourite thing to do whatever the occasion). We went for a little walk amongst some trees, and the kids didn't notice me discreetly dropping eggs. They were so excited when they found them and placed them in their baskets.

Layout-a-day is also happening again, so I'm playing along (hoping to keep up, because I know I can).

Christmas pages with non-traditional colours make my heart sing, especially if I can find an excuse to use red and white polka dots.

And pink on a boy page is easy to do if you are matching the pink to another element on the page, in this instance - the thickers in the title.


  1. Wow you have been productive! Well done.

  2. Wow, you've been busy! Love all your layouts. They're so simple and clean, yet lovely and bright. :D

  3. These are all great layouts Cate - I like that photo of the kids with the bunny ears.

  4. You have most definitely been getting in your scrappy time with beautiful results :)

  5. These are all fab - but I especially am drawn to the bunny ears one - adorable photo.

  6. Adorable LO's!! Just curious, where do you get your hipstamatic shots printed or do you print at home? Haven't been able to figure that one out!

  7. Just getting around to some more blogs from Shimelle's classes. I love these layouts - so clean and fresh. I particularly like the First Christmas one with the white space.
