Cousins make the best of friends - Scrap Jacked

hey all - just want to say a BIG thank you to all the lovely comments I have received! they mean sooo much esp when u go through n think is my work really good enough n up to standard with all u otha girls gorgeous LO's?? so thank you!

thought i might give the scrap jack challenge a go for the first time, you have to scrap lift one of the fab lo's from their creative team. I chose to scrap lift Mandy's!

I loved the series of photos and natural textures she used as well as how she positioned her journalling and also how she journalled directly onto the page! i tried to keep with the embellies to the left and flow to the right.... hehe

i have called my LO "Cousins make the best of friends" I have used MLS papers, bazzil cardstock, amercian craft chipboard fence, purple pumpkin buttons, fancy pants rubons, and MLS alphas and various other chipboard alphas which i could find... oh year the big chipboard tree is scrapware, twine and made the lil words myself, maya rd pin! phewww....

so here it is.... its diff from my other lo's as i dont see myself as a very good Boy Page scrapper n find it so difficult to do boy pages.......




  1. HI ANITA, as a Mum of two boys, I have to agree it is very hard to scrap boys LO's...girls you can go to town, I really wish the scrap companies would do something about this!!!!
    Anyhow, onto your scrap Jack entry, I lurve it, the B&W Photos and the curly string, along with how you have done your title.....totally AWESOME!!!
    Thanks so much for trying Scrap Jacked out and hope to see you back again next month.

    PS...there is absolutely nothing wrong with your ROCK!!!

  2. This looks gorgeous. I love the papers, your paint and title and that tree is soooo cute. More fabulous work. I too love Mandy's work.

  3. Love, love, love it ALL!!! Your layout is fantastic Anita ... & I totally agree about boy layouts, they're HARD. I so love what you did with the title too. Thanks for joining in with us at Scrap Jacked! A new challenge goes up on the 5th.

  4. What a great page Anita. I just love the string. Thanks for playing with us at scrap jacked.

  5. Gorgeous Anita!!!
    I love how you've journalled onto the paint and the paint at the top. Love the colours also.
    Great lift of Mandy's!!

    I have a boy and a girl and I very rarely scrap my son as I find it a real challenge. So I understand!!
    My daughter is soooo easy and with 2 full albums compared to my son's almost full 1 album, it shows unfortunately.

    Thanks for playing along with us at Scrap Jacked and hope to see you again next month!!

  6. I love this LO, it's so eye catching. Gorgeous.

  7. Ooooh Anita!!! This is just sooooo striking and eye-catching immediately!
    I love love love your interpretation and the style and colour you have used here - stunning!
    Thanks for lifting my LO!!!
