More Creative Show & Tell

Hi Everyone, I have a few more creations to share with you all, although I must admit that this post should have been posted prior to the last day of the month!  My apologies for the delay in getting the Pre-Pumpkin Monthly Pack Challenges up, but alas they did make it!  So without further ado, let's check out what the girls have been up to.

Sketch Challenges
Swim by Pam Casey
Pam has put together a nice bright layout, using flowers, vines and leaves in the cluster and on the borders. The mix is lovely. The doily's soften the page andbalance all the whites. Very nice Pam, well done.
bff by Beth Metcalf

Beth has used pink and blue to dominate her layout over a muted background paper.  The quilled flowers add a nice texture, and the colour mix makes them more interesting.  The layered papers have been embossed, and the felt flourish border breaks up the colours.  Beth has also used a simplified border cluster by creating a fanned flower, and adding a bit of bling.  The bunting has also been represented by the quilled flowers and gingham ribbon.  Well done Beth.

I also have a Show & Tell from Kylie gW, who wasn't able to get this one in for the recent ScrapBursts, but I loved it and asked to share it with you all.  This one was for the Metals, and Kylie has also used lovely metallic flowers and a gold metallic pen (most creative!) to doodle her doily for a very interesting effect.
Treasured by Kylie gW
Kylie likes to work with a smaller page, and I always find her layouts interesting and creative.
This is giving you a better view of the doodling Kylie has done to form her doily.
This is where the three central frames meet, and Kylie has linked them all with the gold pattern. The chip shape has also come up nicely with a bit of metallic colouring. Well done Kylie, and thanks for sharing.
Mavis by Beth Metcalf
Today we are sharing a beautiful layout of Mavis, Beth's lovely Mum.  Now Beth started out creating her layout for the sketch, but sort of lost sight of it and wandered off track a little, so she did another one, and I persuaded her to let me display this one!  The fussy cut papers are all flocked in greys and blacks, just perfect for the photo.  The cutouts have been layered and mounted, and the photo itself has been mounted on cardstock with some decorative cardstock strips.  The tassles also add a nice touch.
In amongst the cutouts we have some lovely Prima Bling on stems. These add such an elegance to the layout. Thanks Beth, your layout is just beautiful.
Add Water and Enjoy by Heather Bensley
Here we have a layout from our former CT Member Heather, who has featured her almost one year old grandson, Noah.  Taking a break from the Team after a very hectic few months, it's always nice to see what Heather comes up with for our Challenges.  I'm loving the kite Heather has used for the banner, and how she has utilized the zigzag pattern in the papers.
Heather has made her clusters from the Sketch a bit more "kiddie friendly" by mounting up her cutouts of the cute little critters, and working her colours into the teals and blues for a boys page.  The water drops add to the theme of the photo, and a hint of Glimmer Mist breaks up the white space ever so lightly.
The colours in the chip title look great, and a slight sanding on the edges softens them down a bit.  The border clusters are most creative, again using the zigzag patterned paper.  Thanks for playing Heather, beautiful page.

As we've been doing a bit of Show & Tell, we also have one from Heather to share.  Whilst having a "5 minute Heather cuppa" this week, for about an hour or so......., we decided that we would still like to share this one from the last Sketch Challenge.  Although it's past it's entry date I always think it's good to have a Show & Tell so that you can still get to see what everyone does with the challenges or packs, and so that we can still display the girls' layouts.
It Tough Growing Up Cute by Heather Bensley
Just lovely Heather, the pearls, buttons and birds look great, the minimalist paper across the centre work in great with the solid and cutout circles.  Thanks for letting me share your work.

Thanks to everyone for bringing in or emailing your beautiful work for Scrapville to share on the Blog and in the Store.

O em gee - these layouts are all spectacular. Pam, I love the colour scheme of Swim, and your blossom cluster is gorgeous. Beth, love your banner, the ribbon strips look awesome and I love the layered blossoms. Kylie, what can I say about your layout - it is divine. The gold doily doodling is out of this world. Beautiful. Love your heritage layout Beth. The fussy cutting is sensational. And Heather, absolutely adore the Add Water layout. You have done a mighty fine job with the Bo Bunny pps. The sketch layout is awesome too. Love the circular pics.
