Scrap Africa Challenge: Christmas/December/Holidays in...

I know it sounds cliché but I seriously cannot believe that we have almost reached the end of another year. I feel like I am still planning out my goals for the year and now it's over. I guess I have reached several milestones this year that I can be proud of. One of them was making the Scrap Africa design team. Another one was getting on track to start losing some of this weight that has been holding me back. I'm down 12 kg in just over 3 months, about a third of my overall goal.

The current challenge at Scrap Africa is running until the end of the month (or should I say the end of the year?) The challenge is to create a layout, card or OTP and include journaling about what Christmas/December/holidays are like in your country, household, family, etc.

I created a layout using photos from our 2013 staff year end function at my work.


Our company usually has separate functions for factory staff, drivers, management and admin. The managers and admin girls get to take their kids along if we choose a venue that is suitable for children. Last year's function was held at a wine estate and the kids had a great time playing on the jungle gym and rolling down a small grass hill.


The baubles are from Creative Embellishments, embossed with Perfect Pearls.


The papers are from Webster's Pages All that Glitters and Tim Holtz Christmas Memories.

Scrap Africa Sketch 40: You just love being a girl

That's right! My girl is such a girly girl. She loves new clothes, prancing around and doing girly things. And I love watching her do it.

The current challenge at Scrap Africa is a sketch challenge and it really is one of the coolest sketches I have seen. I loved working with this one!


I started with some 7 Dots Studio paper, added texture using a stencil, moulding paste and Dazzles and wrapped it up with some sequins and a roller stamp.



The circle frame chippie is from Creative Embellishments and it was painted with metallic gold craft paint from Dala.


And finally, the sketch.
