Exciting times.

Everyone in the scrapping world knows about Anam Stubbington and the amazing work she does. She has been one of my fave scrappers since I stumbled upon this hobby way back in the day. The creator of inspirational sketch/challenge blog Twisted Sketches, and on many design teams, she's now the mastermind behind a new app for iPhone scrappers!!! I am really lucky that I got to be a small part in this new venture, which I'm sure will be a massive success. What a brilliant idea for when you're at a crop and inspiration runs dry... a bank of sketches and LOs in your pocket to get the creative juices flowing!Sketches to Scrapbook is to be launched early November, and has a blog, a Facebook page, and a twitter page... just so you can keep up to date with what's happening.
So what else has been happening here. Well I have still been busy reading. I've been doing a ripple crochet blanket for my lovely friend Catrina who is about to pop with a baby girl. I love the ripple pattern as it so easy to do and needs almost no concentration so it's good to do in front of the tv.... I just wish I'd discovered it when my boys were babies!!! I have some LOs I can share. These LOs were created with the Sarahscards September kit, which was made up of Jillibean Soup, Old World Cabbage. It was a gorgeous kit to use... I'm sure I say that about every kit though don't I... lol!!! Seriously I loved the fresh colours and the patterns of the papers.


This LO was done for the September sketch challenge on the Sarahscards blog... a bit late I know, but if you didn't play along you could still use the sketch as inspiration. I love using multiple photos although it has been a challenge getting used to using them on the A4 LOs... I like how this LO turned out though.


The next couple of LOs were done for the October sketch challenge which is currently running. I loved this sketch so much I have actually used it 3 times... I can only share the 2 LOs though as the other was for someone else and I didn't take a photo!



Crikey... when I do a catch up I do a catch up don't I... lol!!!

Gorgous LO's!

It's very sad about your Grandpa, I'm glad your mum made her peace with him <3

And I am loving that ripple blanket! Since I have a blanket fetish I need to learn how to make that! I had better wait till I finish knitting the one I am doing lol

The APP for that sounds cool too!

Happy New Year
Love Trina xx
