Clowning Around

Goodmorning Everyone!

Mel here. 
Isn't time just flying???...However, it feels like it has been a very long time since my last post!

Over the weekend we had a wonderful time at the Scrapbookit Retreat. For those who were there I assume that you would agree, for those of you should be extremely jealous! We had such a wonderful time. Our theme was 'A Day at the Races' and our dress up night on Saturday was a real hoot! We had a lolly bar, lots of laughs (so many our sides hurt), we got plenty of scrapping done, prizes, shopping, amazing breakfast/lunches/morning teas and a great layout class by our wonderful DT Member Brenda.
A huge thank you to Jo for all of the hard work she has put in to make sure the weekend was a wonderful one for us all. We are so lucky to have access to such a great weekend at such a beautiful location. 
We can't wait for March to do it all again!!!

Now for a small trip back in time...
Last month I set the challenge here at Scrapbookit! It was a lot of fun and we had so many AMAZING entries, thank you to all of those who took the time to enter.
I forgot to pick and announce the winner, which I sincerely apologise for.

So, without further delay I would like to congratulate

Mary Bennetts 

for this gorgeous layout 'My Father My Hero'

Mary, Jo will contact you with the details for your prize. 

Now, back to the present!

This month Jo set the challenge for us to complete a layout using the following PageMaps sketch.

Here is what I have come up with...I twisted the layout one rotation to the right.

This photo was taken earlier this year when we took Brayden to the Great Moscow Circus.

I have used the gorgeous kit that Jo sent me to create this layout. All of the products featured here can be purchased from Jo. If you can't find them in the online store, all you need to do is email Jo and she will get it all organised.

This layout features Fancy Pants Designs paper collection 'Everyday Circus.' It is such a bright, vibrant paper range. I just love it!

I have used 'Coffee Bean' cardstock, Black Kaisercraft Ink, Texture Paste, Kaisercraft Clear Stamp - Texture - Stains, a circle and star punch, Foam Thickers - Delight, a tag, washi tape, twine, Heidi Swapp's ColourShine - Teal, Barn Door Distress Stain and tickets from the Fancy Pants Everyday Circus Ticket Roll.

Here is a close up...

Have you had a go at this challenge yet? 
If not, you have until the 30th of October to get your entries into Jo for the chance to win a prize.

I look forward to sharing more of my projects with you tomorrow as we finish off a month welcoming our new DT Members. 
Until then, enjoy the beginning of your week.
