Been Busy This Week


Finished my LO for Scrap the Girls Challenge for March.

The criteria for the challenge was:

The challenge..... use the following picture as inspiration for your LO – it could be the colours, the fashion, the women in your life etc.......
Extra criteria – use the word friend, friendship or friends in your title.

I was inspired by the word friends.  This LO is of my DD Grade 7 Graduation with 2 of her closest friends who are identical twins.  I love this pic.



Challenge Heaven - A few more for March

So far have managed to finish 7 of the 8 Challenges for March.

Colour Challenge - Had to use green, blue and orange + ribbon. I used MME pp's some gingham fabric as background for my photo and tied some ribbon in a knot for corner embellishment, also used Martha Stewart border punch.  I thought I'd try a bit of glimmermist with some butterfly stickers I had.  I like how it turned out.


Quote Challenge - Had to use the words "A Special Love", rubons and a decorative edge. I used Prima pp's & rubon frame with Fancy Pants hearts rubons on photo and birds on title.  The decorative border was a Fiskars border punch on green Prima packaging, then added some bling and glitter on flowers and leaves.



Word Challenge - Use the word Daddy or Mummy in title, at least 4 pp's and blue title.  I went a bit mental with the pp's on this LO.  Used K& Co., Prima, Kaisercraft, Scenic Route, Memento, & Bella Blvd.  I cut out the word Daddy on Cricut and used LYB alpha stickers & rubon for rest of title.  Added some chip embellies, Prima flower and knotted paper ribbon to finish off.



Number Challenge - Use 3 word title, 2 staples and 1 photo.  This is a LO of my DD.  She let me use her as a guinea pig, so I could play with my new camera.  Used Prima glitter pp with the title "In Full Bloom".  Had fun stamping quite of few different cut out embellies on this LO and had to add some Prima flowers.


Theme Challenge - Sunshine - had to use pearls and ink around photos which I do all the time. Lovely pic of DD and friend on holidays quite a few years back. Used Fancy Pants pp's with pearls, buttons and some Unity stamps.



I finished a few more LO's of holiday & Christmas pics.  OMG I took so many photos.

These LO's are pics from a photo shoot I managed to talk the kids into.  They weren't keen at first, but we ended up having a great afternoon and I snapped some great shots. 



I'm off to have a cuppa and watch a movie and veg out.

Til next time.
