Personal Scrapper Croptoberfest...21 to 31 October 2010

21 October 2010:  Then and now.
Bianca's album

22 October:  Family
Another Vicki Boutin design for CHA2010.  All paper and embellishments used are from the Basic Grey Curio line.  The photos were taken on my birthday in January this year when we were having breakfast with our children.

23 October: Use a punched border or a sticker border.
Another Vicki Boutin design for CHA2010.  This is from the Basic Grey Jovial line.  Snow paper is very hard for me to use and I used it for winter photos.  Here is Lukas with his first shiner sleeping happily on my lap.

24 October:  use at least one tag on your layout
I used three sticker tags...matted them and added a ribbon to each one.  The paper and embellishments are all from the Bo Bunny Love Bandit line.

25 October: Use popdots, buttons or chipboard.
I used pop dots behind the flowers.  These are papers from the Basic Grey Marjolaine line.

26 October: Use scraps on your layout
This layout were made from the scraps of the Basic Grey Marjolaine line and I cut flowers from some of the scraps.

October 27:  Scraplift another member's layout
I started off scraplifting Barbara's layout that was a lift of Carrie Postma's layout...but it quickly went downhill and does not look anything like her layout.  The paper is from MME Lost and Found.

28 October:  Use a ribbon border
This is a total lift of Christie Bryant from The Scrappy Gourmet.  When I saw her beautiful layout I knew I wanted to copy it.  The paper and embellishments used are all MME Lost and Found Market Street.

29 October:  Use eyelets or brads
Another Vicki Boutin design.  The paper used are Basic Grey Marjolaine.  This line of paper was my favourite line to work is just gorgeous and the colours work well with boys and girls.

30 October and 31 October
I did not follow the last two day's challenges.  These layouts were of my sister, Herlien's wedding to Mark.  I used Basic Grey Cappella for these layouts.

Sjoe!  I made it...31 layouts in 31 days...and amongst that was a 20 page mini album.
