Week 2 of Scrapbookit’s Mega Celebrations

Hi Everyone…..Mel here. 

Firstly, Happy 1st Birthday Jo! How exciting for you, it is hard to believe how quickly that year has gone! What a great month of celebrations so far!
And welcome everyone to the second week and second sketch reveal here at Scrapbookit’s Mega Month of Celebrations……...not only do we have a different sketch for you each week but we have weekly prizes, our normal monthly prize and a Mega Sale. So make sure you pop in here to see all of reveals from the girls throughout this month!
Here is the sketch from PageMaps that I was lucky enough to be able to use.  

I have fallen so totally in love…….with Simple Stories! This month I was the very excited recipient of the Simple Stories Generations range. Oh my, oh my how easy is it to use this paper! It is the type of paper that you HAVE TO have two or more of each of the pages as you really want to be able to use both sides!!!
I used photos of the Generations in Jason’s (my hubby) family. It was so nice to snap a few photos of the three generations on Father’s Day this year and the Simple Stories papers were a perfect match.

Rather than using a large block of paper in the background I decided to use a variety of the patterned papers in small squares to create a patchwork quilt effect…..thanks Mum for the inspiration!
How great is this fob watch from Fern Laser Designs…...I loved it so much in it’s raw state but I am sure it would look great painted, inked, misted etc.
I used my iTop to create the brads and some Ribtex Twine - Brown in between them.

I have also used this gorgeous collection for my card. It is a perfect collection to create a card for someone who is moving into a new home.

And here is the inside…….

Well, I hope you love this Simple Stories Collection as much as I have loved using it. You would have seen my take on Jo’s sketch last week using the same collection. I have also used it for another sketch and card for next week's reveal… keep a look out!

Don't forget if you enter this week's sketch challenge and get your layout in before Friday you will go in the running for an extra little something from Scrapbookit!

Also, make sure you pop in later this week for the reveal of the other DT girls interpretations of my sketch.Last of all head on over to Scrapbookit to check out all of the products from the Simple Stories collection and don’t forget our .........Mega Sale starting this coming Tuesday the 25th of October.
Have a great weekend and happy scrapping,
