Getting back on track....

Due to family commitments, Tracey and Jodi are no longer able to run Scrapping Word Pictures. I'm sure you'll agree that they have done an amazing job setting up and running Word Pictures and that it is a shame to see them go.

The reins have been handed over to me to keep things running, so giddy up! We have some wonderful sponsors, an amazing inspirational team and some exciting things coming up in the future. I look forward to seeing your amazing layouts!

Please be patient with me, I've got some housekeeping to do over the next couple of days and look forward to getting things up and running full steam ahead on 1 November.

Happy scrapping! Sami

October Word Picture Challenge

Sorry for the delay in getting this posted...... the real world keeps interrupting our Scrapping Time.

This Months Challenge is Written by our very own Inspirational Team Member Sue Maree.

October's Word Picture
Two photos 10 x 15 cm each
1 12 x 12 Cardstock
2 pieces of PP approximately 14 x 15 cm each (these can be the same pp or coordinating pp) and will be named PPA and PPB
1 piece of coordinating PP approximately 24 x 7 cm named PPC
1 piece of coordinating ribbon approximately 26 cm long
Assorted flowers or other embellishments
Assorted flourish stamps or other embellishments of your choice
Chipboard letters for the title

Ink the edges of your cardstock.
Run a line of stitching or doodle along two edges.

Take PP A place it on a slight angle to one side of the cardstock towards the bottom half of the page. Take the PPB and place it slightly higher than PPA and angled towards the other side of the page. These two papers should overlap a little around the centre of the page.

Place photo 1 so that it sits on PPA overhanging the top of the pp slightly. Place photo 2 so that it sits on PPB overhanging the bottom of the paper slightly. The photos will also overlap each other with photo 1 sitting higher on the page than photo 2.

Run PPC across the bottom of both photos. It should run on an angle. Run the ribbon across the top of this strip.

Stamp flourishes in the top corner above Photo 1 and in the bottom corner below Photo 2. Place your journaling towards that same bottom corner.

Add flowers or similar embellishments to one end of PPC.

Add your title just above or slightly overlapping your photos.

Finish the page with embellishments of your choice.

Remember to e-mail your layouts into us by the 31st of October.

Last September Layout

Here is out last September Layout - it is lovely.
The boys by Lindy Gillespie

A Few Things.

Our Thanks
We just wanted to say a great big THANK YOU to Sue Maree for all that she has done in the last month to keep Word Pictures going in our absence. We really appreciate it Sue Maree.

We are sad to say;
That both Jodi and myself are stepping down from the running of Word Pictures and are currently looking for a lovely lady or two to take over the running of this great Challenge Blog. Due to work, study, a new business prospect and family commitments the both of us have realised that we can not give the Blog the dedication that it warrants. So if you are interested in taking on the Word Picture Challenge Blog please drop us an e-mail. We will be happy to pass on our contacts and help you with a smooth introduction and handover. We are not asking for any money - we just want Word Pictures to go to a "nice home."
