International Scrapbooking Party with Cathy & Clare - Week 1


Scrapbook Sketch for Week 1 of our Scrapbook Party 4th - 10th March 
Morning Everyone, we hope you've been enjoying a crafty week.  Some of you may know that Monday was the start of International Craft month and today we're celebrating International Scrapbooking Day. I'm really excited to be joining up with the fabulously talented Cathy from So Much Scrap and together we are launching a scrapbooking party for you to take part in too.  

Over the next three Friday's we'll be sharing a scrapbook sketch with you on our blogs and FB pages and asking you to join in the party, and create your own scrapbook page following the sketch and theme of the week.  As we're both Graphic 45 addicts we chose papers from the Worlds Fair collection and created a double page layout. Taking a page each we worked with different sized papers and colours www.mycreativespirit.co.uk to create our finished layout that captures the memory of afternoon tea together at Harrods, London, England last summer. 
Here's our page pics:

We'd love you to join in the party too and create a lovely layout following the sketch above. 
This weeks theme is 'Friends'. 
The rules are pretty simple:
Chose your colours, use any papers or medium, give your layout a title and a date, take a picture and upload it via the link box below to share your page with us all.  Add the country you're from in the link title field along with your name to make this a truly International party too. 
We'll be sharing two more sketches and new themes with you on Friday March 11th and Friday March 18th - so more fun to come.  
Random.org will chose a weekly winner who will be able to chose a tutorial from the So Much Scrap and My Creative Spirit on line shops.  Our three weekly winners will go into a final draw.  The overall winner will receive a selection of tutorials from So Much Scrap and goodies from the MyCreativeSpirit websites.  

Happy scrap booking everyone, we're looking forward to seeing your pages :-) Clare & Cathy

  2. Morning Clare, What a fabulous idea !! I'm really loving both these layouts, beautiful papers and fabulous compilation.
    I have been 'starting' scrapbooking for 2 years now, every January I say to myself, this is the year I will start scrapbooking, and I still haven't tried it yet. This template is a great idea and shows how to compile your page. Thank you.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
