Woo Hoo... I Won a Challenge

I'm so excited I won April's From Screen to Scrap Challenge.  The prize was a gorgeous kit from What's Old is New.  The movie poster inspiration was "Little Miss Sunshine".  The challenge was to use a fair bit of yellow, have Little Miss or Little Mr in your title, and a car, truck or van somewhere on the page.   This was my LO.


Did some last minute scrapping to get my 4 April challenges finished for Mad About Scrappin.

Card Challenge - April 1 of 4

This challenge was to use ribbon, circles and flourishes.  I used bright Fancy Pants & MME pp's. There is a ribbon bow on the Prima flower centre with flourishes on either side, and there are circles on the pp's and the button is also a circle.  I used a Stampendous stamp for the sentiment.

Card Challenge - April 3 of 4

For this card challenge you had to use dark muted colours, some stripes and it had to be a masculine card.  I used WRMK & Prima papers with an EK Success punch on the stripe border. A Tim Holtz grungeboard skull painted black with a Scrappy Cat stamp with a bit of ribbon and some Carolees alpha stickers.

LO Challenge - April 4 of 4

For this LO challenge you had to have a black background with negative space.  I decided to use this pic of me which was taken by a friend when we did a photography class.  I rarely like photos of myself and I don't have very many as I am usually the one behind the camera, but I really liked this one as it was taken of me when I was unaware.  I find it difficult to pose for pictures and look natural.  Used Jillibean, Bo Bunny & Teresa Collins pp's & a book page, with Chip Chop Shop doily & button, rhinestone button, Martha Stewart punches and a Unity lamp stamp.  

LO Challenge - May 1 of 4

For this card challenge you had to use flowers and leaves with some bling.  I used Bo Bunny & October Afternoon pp's with rhinestones as flower centres.  Hero Arts stamp on a K&Co journal tag and a Martha Stewart doily punch.  Finished off with a button and some ribbon.

Thanks for looking.

Cheers Cathy
