Finally, I've got round to posting a few things I've been working on over the past few days.

Firstly, the scrapbook page 'Beach Life', was a happy accident. A while ago I had printed out the background photograph and it came out A4 size so I put it in a drawer and forgot all about it. Then reading an old copy of Scrapbooking Memories I came across a page that used a large photo with smaller ones over the top, so I have effectively 'scrap lifted' this page, I hope that's okay! Anyway, it was a very quick page to do, no messy fingers, just croping and matting. I like its simplicity though.

Here's what I used, Bazzill Card stock, and chipboard letters off ebay a while ago. The quote reads "our memories of the ocean will linger on long after our footprints in the sand are gone", don't know who said that but I've had it written down for ages waiting for the ideal place to use it.

And a couple of cards. Both using images from Dustin Pike, I love his drawings and have really got into 'colouring in' since I got my promarkers. The chameleon card I printed onto the flowery paper (from Kaisercraft) and then drew the lines in darker over the top, the idea being that the chameleon has blended into its background!

The final one of the monkey eating a muffin is also from Dustin Pike, the papers are from Kaisercraft and the edging at the top is a Martha Steward punch.
