13th June Sunday Challenge

Hi, how's your week been? Good I hope. This week's challenge is based on today's date, which of course is unlucky for some. So without further ado here is Amanda's challenge for you today:

I want to see your pages about the number 13! It could be that you're a firm believer in it being an unlucky number, or maybe it's been lucky for you. Perhaps you just want to list 13 things you love about your hubby. It's up to you, but 13 must be there somewhere

And here is what the design team thought about the challenge:


Lisa Several ideas went through my head for this one. I finally decided to scrap one of the best days of my life. March 13th 2007, the day before our wedding. My Dad had the kids, Ade and I had a whole day, just the 2 of us at Discovery Cove. Bliss. I also scrapped 13 photos for this challenge.
ps...I was so brave, I absolutely hate water!!


Number 13 is considered unlucky by some and this train of thought led me to thinking about many other superstitious beliefs. If you had asked me before this challenge whether I was superstitious, I would have answered no! However, when I thought about it, the realisation dawned that lots of the little traditions I follow or believe in are actually based upon superstition, I realised I might just have to reconsider.

My page records 13 superstitious beliefs I regularly do - such as saluting a solitary magpie, touching wood, not walking under ladders etc...

I used a variety of different stamps to create my background.


I hardly ever scrap photos of my when I was younger so this gave me the perfect excuse to do just that. This is me on my thirteenth bithday when I thought I was grown up with my melon balls for a starter and Sara Lee chocolate gateaux for dessert ;) I used some Sassafrass lass (Woodland Whimsy- Life is Beautiful) paper for this one and hand cut all the flowers out of it.


My husband's grandmother gave us a bunch of vintage board games, including a Rummikub game. Many pieces were missing, which made playing impossible, so I took the remaining numbers and added them to my scrapbooking stash. There just happens to be 13 numbers in this game, so when this challenge came up, I knew I wanted to make a mini with the game pieces. This album details 13 of my hopes and dreams.

Don't forget that each month on the new look blog we'll be offering a prize to our followers. To be in the draw for this prize, all you need to do is use the link here to show us what you've created based on Amanda's challenges. This month is sponsored by our very own Tessa Buys who's offering a $20 gift voucher to use in her shop.


  1. I love all the different takes on 13! Wonderful work, ladies!

  2. I've (hopefully) uploaded a layout ... the link to number 13 is that the photo was taken on 13 March this year. Love the great ideas you've given us!
