1975 Layout for Creative Scrappers Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! How's your day so far?

Mine has been quite eventful so far! As some of my regular visitors will know, I recently re-organised my entire craft room and blogged about it here back in December. However, having decided to market our home, I thought I needed to show the room as a bedroom, rather than a craft room.. so a mammoth re-organisation occurred ... again! 

Suffice to say, I have now moved the entire contents of my ex-craft room to my new space (a mezzanine above my bedroom) and today I spent almost the entire day sorting it all out..! Needless to say the urge to 'create' struck me when I was coming across all my lovely goodies.. so here is my take on the Creative Scrappers Sketch Challenge

Now... I love a good sketch and of course, I love UK Scrappers.. so when Maggie set a challenge over on UKS that had to include triangles.. well it just made my day as it fitted this challenge so perfectly. Thanks Maggie! 

Anyway... here is my layout...I have to say that the journalling irks me somewhat, so that will be typed and re-done at some point, but for now I'm OK with it as it is, until my new printer is set up and I can do it the way I want it. I used a random sheet of paper for the background and some scraps of Carta Bella papers together with some embossed red card stock and some brown too. I finished it off with some strips of gems, wooden arrows and some co-ordinanting flowers and it's good to go! 

Photos of the new craft space will appear in the fullness of time, but it's not quite ready for 'showing off' yet (wonder if it's 'cos I stopped sorting and stated scrapping instead!) ha ha ha... thanks for stopping by!


  1. Lovely layout and cant wait to see the finished craft area :)

  2. Great take on the sketch, I hear ya about not being able to let things go sometimes. I the the journaling looks great, but you gotta do, what you gotta do :) Thanks for linking up with us at Creative Scrappers.

  3. Beautiful, beautiful page Elaine - going to pin for a future scraplift!

  4. What a lovely page - I like the triangles & the wood veneer pieces you used! (Isn't it terribly hard to organize great scrapping supplies and not stop to scrap! LOL)

  5. Super cute page Elaine :) I just love the action of the triangles on this one I agree it would be a fun one to lift :)

  6. I love this page! The way you incorporated the bling was just brilliant and I love how you emphasized the year.
