I’m trying to do at least once scrapbooking challenge a week. I find having a theme or sketch to work from has really helped with my creative block. I’m aware that my pages look nothing like 95% of the pages entered in these challenges, but that’s OK. I’m scrapping for me, the challenges are a good creative kick-start.
This week I’m entering this page in the “Handmade Flowers April Challenge” at Berry71Bleu.
This is an ideal challenge for me since I often make my own embellishments.
In 1994 I joined a group of friends for a road trip from Sydney to Perth to do promotional work for our uni. This photo was taken at the Great Australian Bight. Here I am with my good friend S. This photo is very precious to me as S is no longer with us. Gorgeous Girl carries her name as a salute to my good friend.

Gorgeous Girl helped with inking the edges of the flowers. Not bad for a 6 year old. The leaves were drawn free hand, folded and scored down the middle for dimension.
Punches are from Stampin’ Up and the buttons are from the button stash. I’m pretty sure these came off one of Gorgeous Man’s shirts about 15 years ago…
While I was doing that, Gorgeous Girl decided that she wanted to scrap as well. This is her page. All I do is provide supplies (though she does have her own paper stash thanks to one of her aunties) and help spell words (when asked).
She insisted I put her page here and she took her own photo.
Thanks for stopping by.
