I have made a pact....

......with my self to complete the next 10 layouts without using a banner...LOL, Now there is a challenge on its own.... Lets see how that goes !!
My first share today is my 1st October challenge that I set at Scrapawhile...see what I mean about the banners .


Next I want to share another Hambly Layout that I created a while ago, it was actually a scraplift challenge of the awesomely talented Shell from a scrap night we had about 2 months ago. Larsen is just completely obsessed with anything Addison does, I think it is so lovely to see..


This layout and some new layouts are up on the Hambly blog now, how exciting to have my first post over there!!!

I am on a quest to better edit my layout photos, I am so completely not happy with them at the moment....

Till next time...

Hi Kim
Love all your work. What a great day we had today! It was so wonderful to see you again - wow we all had so much to reminisce about - as we said it would make a great book. I miss our scrapping times together - can't wait to see if you scrap our pic - of course some people may need photoshopping!

Jasmine S said...

Loooove orange at the moment and this looks fab. Goodluck with the banner thing. Just think of all of the LOs you can create WITH banners when you have done 10 without...

Liz Weber said...

Fantastic layouts Kim, love what you do with banners so good luck with the banner ban! Love all your hambly work, I really must buy some now I have seen how you use it! Have a great weekend.

Natalie Elphinstone said...

I too am a banner-junkie so I know what you mean! They're just such a great and versatile embellishment :-) And these layouts are just fabulous! You always know how to combine your colours so perfectly!

Melinda Spinks said...

Kim I have to agree with Anne P... if banners are part of your style and you love doing them, then keep adding them to your creations... atleast until you find a new fad to replace this one. LOL! Gorgeous layouts by the way!
