Product Challenge...

every month over at Scrap of Difference Jo sets a product challenge, you have 2mths to complete the challenge so plenty of time to order supplies and get the LO done. Julys product was PRIMA with at least paper from the Wtercolour Rainbow Collection. Heres my take using pp,alphas, vine and stickers from Prima.

August product challenge was to use crafters template. This is what i came up with....

thanks for stopping by, having some lovely rain at the moment!!

Blast from the past CC

When Jo at Scrap of Difference asked for ideas for the CC theme i had this photo of me sitting in front of me so i suggested a CC using old photos, the DT liked it so Blast from the Past it was. I did the sketch challenge again this month creating this LO and making a sketch from it.

JO's colour challenge had us all raiding our stash as it was brown/lilac. To be honest i wasnt sure what to do but last night i came up with this, the photos form 2004. i just added a small amount of lilac, the c/s and journal spot but i actually like the little touch it adds.

DH's birthday today and he has hinted as soemthing with with lemon in it as we have heaps on the tree and we were looking at recipes on the weekend. With yum being the general response im of to make lemon meringue pie!!!!

I soooooooo dont do purple so i struggled to find stuff for this LO! NO other colour would go with those purple hands,LOL!! this LO is for Scrap the girls . I did this Lo because every tuesday and thursday when Lucy is at kindy and ROry goes to sleep i ask Hannah what would she like to do. And the answer is ALWAYS the same "I want to paint!". She paints with a paintbrush on paper for a little bit which progresses to her hands and yes, always ends up looking like this!!! But she loves it and it washes off!!!!!

Its currently raining and i dare not complain as we really need it over here in the west!

Using Kaisercraft

These 2 LO's are for challenges over at Kaisercraft . I wanted to scrap this little story of Lucy. We were going for a walk on afternoon when she said her teacher told her to come home and tell mum and dad what she wanted to be when she was older. Her response: a hairdresser!!!! SO i thought id document that for when she was older!! I have used the Hey Birdie range for this one.

and this one is for AUgust Sketch #1. this month they are offering 2 awesome prizes!! I have used the devonshire range here.

thanks for stopping by. I best go get ready for our last game of hockey today.
