quick and simple pages

I have been missing in action on my blog. Well, what can I say - it's summer holidays and we have been swimming a lot in the Queensland heat! Mojo was in short supply, the kids are at home with me and so all I did have time for were a few quick and simple pages, which we are or have been doing in class this January.
This one is based on a sketch by Julie Winks from the Scrapboxx:

Here is the original sketch:

I do love working with sketches and Julie's are always so unusual. 

A few days ago I was browsing through some blogs and came upon the scrapbooking trends of 2011. I was curious to see if we had covered them all in class and there was only 1 we hadn't done: chevrons. Really?! Apparently it took the scrapbooking world by storm last year... Anyway, storm or not, I had a bit of fun with chevrons, so I could tick it off the top 10 list:

I wasted about 3 papers trying to get the sizes just right, but once you get it they are really quite easy. I added some simple embellies:

...and had a play with my new flower-making punch:

And then here is my last quick and easy page:

I found a how-to in Creating Keepsakes for these cool little yo-yos. What a great way to use up heaps of scraps.

Anyway, now that school is almost back on I will be checking the mailbox for my returning mojo. It's gotta be coming back now any day...
