My first Scrapbook layout - YIKES CCW DT

Hi all

Right now I should be packing for our trip to Edinburgh for our Wedding Anniversary.

Before I get onto the DT project just wanted to say thanks to the DT over at Daring Cardmakers as I won the "Boyzone" dare last week, yay!!

Well anyone in crafty land who knows me knows I have long wanted to create a scrapbook layout and how much of a HUGE phobia I have had about actually sitting down and doing one... Well, no more as I have now officially created my first ever layout to celebrate Fathers Day which is the challenge over on Creative Craft World and how EXCITING as the sponsor is none other than American Crafts whoohooo!!

It wasn't as bad as I thought simply because Lou from Creative Craft World sent some gorgeous Cherryarte Basic Blue papers in my DT kit! She is selling them and loads of other stuff at amazing prices as she is having a relocation sale.

Lou went away before I had chance to finish my DT project so it will be on the challenge blog on Tuesday. The challenge is for a scrapbook layout which can be any of the following sizes 6x6, 8x8, 8.5x11 or 12x12. So if like me you need a little push to enter the world of scrapping then this is the ideal opportunity!!

The photos are from last weekend when the weather was scorching (a dim and distant memory now as it is peeing down today) when we spent a lovely afternoon at Formby Point.


  1. Wow Sarah, what a great layout for your first attempt. I must have a go at this challenge, as i too keep threatening to do a layout.
    I love those papers and alphabet leters, i hope you have a fab time in Edinburgh.
    Happy Anniversary

  7. Whooo hoooo, way to go Sarah! So glad to see you have scrapped at last Hun and WHAT a super layout too! ( see, I said it wouldn’t be as scary as you thought lol) I think its smashing, well balanced, lovely mix of colours and the photos and the journaling are wonderful( where DID all that amazing weather disappear too??) I like how you angled the 2nd photo and that you carried the title round and down the side. Good luck with the challenge. Fabby work, keep em coming Hun :) Warmest wishes, Anita.xxxx
