My Mind's Eye

 Hello Everyone,

Mel here! I can't believe that Easter is upon us. When I first found out I was posting today.....I thought Easter is ages away....but boy hasn't it snuck up on us!

There are so many exciting things happening at Scrapbookit at the moment....

1) We are preparing madly for our Retreat in May. There are a few spaces left, so make sure you get in quickly!

2) The Kids Challenge - using three primary colours - check it out in the right hand column on this page!

3) We have a new DT Call......have you thought about applying???

4) Our current challenge....which I am here today to share my interpretation. But before I do....have you seen the work from our wonderful Design Team? If not make sure you head back a few posts and check them out!

The challenge this month is a recipe....

You must have on your layout:

1 word title
2 cardstock
3 patterned paper
4 embellishments
5 photos

I have completed a single layout using photos that my boy took of himself ('Selfies') when he received his first digital camera one Christmas!

It is probably lucky that I am not entering this in the challenge as I have failed miserably with the recipe.

I have used 2 cardstock; 1 word title; 5 photos. As for the other parts of the recipe I have over "embellished" and used too many patterned papers. I hope that you forgive me.
Make sure you strictly follow the recipe in your entry...won't you???

Here is my layout 'Selfies'

I have used the gorgeous papers from My Minds Eye 'Boy Crazy.' Part of this is also the Sticker Sheet that I have used to embellish my layout. I have also used a Twiddleybitz  cog set that I have cut separately, rather than using the whole chipboard. I have also used Heidi Swap 'Vintage Chic' lettering.

Our card challenge set by Janene is to create a card with the theme BFF (Best Friends Forever)

Again I have used the great 'My Minds Eye 'Boy Crazy' paper.
I have used the 'We're quite a pair!' postcard from one of the patterned papers.
A bit of ink and some foam tape and it is as easy as that!
A simple little card that my boy could give to his mate for his birthday.

Here it is.......

I love the gorgeous colours of this collection. 
Again, I have used My Mind's Eye 'Boy Crazy' collection.

You have until the 14th of April to get your entries in for this challenge. This includes the kids challenge too!

You have until the 2nd of April to get your DT Application in!

Both of these can be emailed to Joanne (

Make sure you pop back in over the next few days as we begin to say a very sad goodbye to out Design Team who finish up at the end of this challenge.

We look forward with anticipation ~ who will be on our new DT?

I hope that you have a wonderful Easter weekend ~ filled with lots of yummy chocolate eggs and special family time. If you are travelling, travel safely!

Happy Easter!


  1. Fantastic work yet again Mel.

  2. Mmm, lucky I'm not a tough boss!! What great photo's our boys take of themselves. I love your card idea I never thought of a card for a mate. Great work, thanks for sharing Mel.
