My next layout .... step 1

I have a layout due with Scrapbooking Memories soon and they have sent me some fantastic papers to use that have a beach theme.
I chose a handful of my favourite images and created a collage from when Ethan had surfing lessons a few weeks ago while on holidays at the Gold Coast. I love collages and I love lots of photos on a layout - I think it really helps to tell the story.
So, if you're in the mood to scrap a layout with lots of photos using a collage, nows the time, because I'd love to send you what's left in the Scrapbooking Memories
challenge kit once I've finished with it this week.
And for those who know how much product I actually glue to a page, then they will tell you that there will be heaps of stuff leftover to send to you - sheets of paper in fact.
Start emailing me your layouts (old or new) at manistamatellos at
and I'll choose someone to send some goodies to on Saturday!
Thanks for dropping by,

Here come some layouts, promise!

The hardest thing about having commitments to Scrapbooking Magazines is that you can't share your creations until after the magazine comes out and in the case of Scrapbooking Memories, they prefer us to wait 2 months until after the issue has been out in the newsagency.

So, I forget!

I really do forget what I created and also if I posted it on my blog.

Here was a favourite one I did - especially because I got to use that gorgeous aqua flower made by my dear friend, Michelle Jamieson.

Go take a look at her site, Chelley Bean Designs and you'll be tempted no end.

This layout was for Scrapbook Creations - Keeping It Simple Article.
The topic was 'Something Old, Something New'.

It was alot of fun combining old and news scrap goodies to create a layout.

And if you want to take a look at what I did in Las Vegas at WPPI last month,

then my photo blog has the updates there - Leanne Stamatellos Photography
