December quote challenge

From the offered quotes I chose "Understand that life is not fair." Whilst working on my son's birthday album I had found this long-forgotten photo, and couldn't resist using it for the challenge.

Unlike the previous pages, this one is digital, created solely using Adobe Photoshop, which is much quicker than cutting and sticking! However, I don't find it quite so satisfying as 'the real thing'!

December We Love Flowers Challenge

This challenge was to create a layout using only red flowers, with the same colour appearing elsewhere in the layout.

The 'Red Fairy' rose bush is outside my front door and has been particularly beautiful this year.

I couldn't decide what to use as a background, then remembered the fairy-like background paper on Joanna Sheen's 'Dancing with Shadows' CD. I liked the single strip of them top and bottom of the page.

My first scrapbook challenge!

Although I'm in the middle of a major scrapping project for my son's birthday present, I stumbled upon the challenges section of, and just had to join up and join in!

The December Colour Challenge is to create a layout [LO] using only black and white, with one other colour. An extra point would be awarded for using a black and white photograph as well.

Here is my first challenge entry. Hope you like it

The paper was downloaded free from Scrapbookscrapbook. I was so pleased with my downloads that I made a small donation through PayPal.

The photograph was originally a coloured one, which I manipulated in Photoshop by making it greyscale.

Can't wait to join in my next challenge.
