Scrapbooking from Scratch September Quote & Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone, this is just a quick post with a couple of challenge entries before the month ends tonight. Man can you believe that it is October in 15 hours sheesh I seriously don’t remember how this year has gone so fast but it has flown by.

Yesterday I posted a layout that I wanted to enter into the Scrapbooking From Scratch Sketch Challenge but alas I did not read the rules properly and I was supposed to do an exclusive layout for the challenge but I was naughty and combined the Jot Mood Board challenge with it so I have done a new layout with the same awesome sketch. Here is the sketch again and checkout all the September Challenges on the Scrapbooking from Scratch Blog here.

Here is my new take on the sketch titled Explore Pretty Beach.

The layout is featuring a gorgeous photo of my 2 girls recently as we were watching the millions of Soldier Crabs scurrying across the sand next to the warf. They are so fascinating to watch and the girls just love going there especially with the awesome park that is across the road.

I have used the Crate Paper Pier Collection papers for this layout as well as some of the Ephemera Die Cuts Pack.

The background has been masked with some Modelling Paste and a Crafters Workshop Template and I have finished it off by adding some Prima Marketing Enamel Dots.

I have used the Studio Calico Sundrifter Collection for this layout as my patterned papers and then I have added lots of fabulous other details including lots of Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mist in the background as droplets.
