Some of my recent projects for online challenges

Uproar2scrapmore have a May challenge and the criteria is to think "B". Anything B. So I did a Boy LO, with Brads, Buttons, Blues, Browns, a Buckle, Black
I used up some of the pp that i had leftover from the first round of hte Scrapbook apprentice competition, and a few other scrap bits that i had lying around. The buckle, and ticket came from Ang, over at Scrap n Art. I used up the last of the black lace cardstock (which i hate - i can never seem to incorporate it into my projects). Pretty happy with how this turned out.

Over at Debs site, the May/June challenge is to create a boys card using boy embellishments. So I used this sarah kay stamped image, with kaiser owl paper and a magnolia hay stack. pretty happy with this card.

Chris at Born2Create, has a may sketch challenge. Normally I dont like sketches, but i gave this one a try and im happy with how it turned out. I used the Bo Bunny PP as the background and a few scraps from Bo Bunny and sassafras lass, hambly screen print rub ons, and i used liquid pearls on the circles for the background.

Scrapbooking 4 less May challenges

This is my LO for challenge 1 for May. Theme is mother's day, and i have included flowers and ribbon

This is me with my two youngest girls. I wrote about how sometimes being their mum is a bit tough, because some days they just fight like mad about everything and over everything. But somedays they just love each other, and play so well together and I hardly see them at all because they are off playing.

And my masculine card with dots and stripes.

Im not real happy with how it turned out. But I kept these crappy odd shaped scraps of this PP, and i tried to use them. But it was just such a crappy piece of paper that it was really hard to do anything with. Note to self: throw out small straggly bits of scrap paper. Im giving this card to my FIL, who turns 70 next month


challenge 3 for May was a LO with pink and green as the main colours, handwritten journalling, lace, 6 flowers, diecut shape and a two word title.

My LO is called young love. I found this photo of DH and I when we were 16, at his sister's wedding. SO i scanned the photo. The quality of the photo is pretty poor, but it looks ok from a distance. Im happy with how this turned out. I have had that black piece of pp, that i used for the background, for about 3 years. so im glad i used it

Mad About Scrappin May challenge 1/4

I made this card out of scraps left over from my DT pack, that Leanne sent me. The card had to have bling, leaves and flowers. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Im sending it to a friend for her bday at the end of the week. The card isnt square, it has scalloped edges

Finally moved

Ive finally unpacked everything in the new house, ready for some scrappin now. Thank goodness its all over. Now just gotta get the yard ready. Here's a piccy of the house
