Scrapbook Boutique September challenge

My eldest son and his friend are getting together to cook for the two families tonight, the theme being "Easter in September".  The company and the main course will be fabulous, but the chocolate dessert isn't the most exciting for me, since I've quit sugar!  But here's the sort of delicious treat I can really appreciate . . . this month's Scrapbook Boutique challenge . . .

Pink and white, doilies and roses . . . I just couldn't wait to get started!

I made a special trip to Domayne to print some phone photos of Maddy and her new bunny, Tibbets.

I started my background once again by applying some white rub-ons, before smooshing gelatos on with the packaging technique.  

I mixed items from both my white- and off white- based Counterfeit Kits this time.  Maddy and I had recently purchased some moulds and paper clay, and this layout features their first appearance on a page.

Before I packed up, I ended up doing a second page. Some of the elements you might recognise, although I didn't stick to the same colour palette.

Same beautiful girl, but slightly younger! This photo was taken at the same time as this one of her brothers.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Your layouts (and photo subjects) are lovely! A great interpretation of the challenge photograph.

  2. Julie, I can see how enthusiastic you were to join us at Scrapbook Boutique this month! Your layout is gorgeous - the colours are yummy and the elements you combined are perfect. Thanks so much for joining us this month!

  3. Great choice of bunny photo and elements on your layout Julie and I can't believe you just whipped up the second layout... you make it look so easy, a 12 X 12 project is way too scary for me lol. Thanks so much for sharing these with us at Scrapbook Boutique!

  4. Beautiful layouts. I especially love the first one as I love rabbits. Your bunny looks a bit like our Midget. Thanks for joining in at Scrapbook Boutique.

  5. Those are lovely pages, Julie. Lovely, with just enough sweetness to complement those photos and not detract. Wonderfully scrapped.

  6. Wow great job Julie on both these beautiful layouts. Love the doily elements and the fab designs you've created.

  7. Gorgeous. And I definitely recognise that last photo!

  8. Or at least, the dress. I have that dress!
