Last for the Cybercrop

I have now completed almost all of the challenges for the Scrap of Difference Cybercrop for February, I have decided to give the card challenge a miss this month, but I have done all the others. Here is my take on the 'word' challenge, we were required to use the words 'at school', and I choose to use it in the title. I have used My Mind's Eye - Bloom and Grow PP & Cosmo Cricket - Earth Love. This is a special photo to me as it was the first time my son was comfortable enough to have his official school photo taken.

Thanks ...

A bit of fun !!

I have had a busy scrappin weekend and it's not over yet, I hope to do at least 1 more tomorrow for the scrap of difference cybercrop. In the meantime, I have done 2 LO's for a bit of fun !! The first is for Abundantias Gold (my local store) monthly challenge of face book, which is LOVE. I saw this PP at had to buy it, it doesn't need much on it as it already has lots of glitz. The 2nd LO is for Scrap of Difference - scraplift, and I have scraplifted a LO by Jo, it has stars and doodling and when I saw it, I couldn't resist using this pic of my eldest son. He was mucking around with a hat and shaking his hair around and just being a fool with his guitar ! Was a rare moment when he let me take pics of him lol ! I have used SEI Kaboom PP's.

Thanks ...

Scrap of Difference - Cybercroppin !!

The cyber croppin has begun at Scrap of Difference with a great theme of 'school days'. I have already completed 2 challenges, the first being a 'theme' challenge. You are required to use more than 1 school supply and an apple of your LO. I used paper clips, heaps of staples and some maths grip paper from an exercise book, and an apple. Below is my take on the challenge, it is called 'star student' and is off my eldest son, Jarred.

The second challenge I have completed is a 'sketch' challenge, it is a 6x12 sketch, but have made it into a 12x12 LO, the only other requirement other than the sketch was to use school themed PP. I have used Fancy Pants - All Fall papers (recess, multiply and inline). The page '1958' is a school photo of my mum, which is the first of many to come in the making of her 60th album.

Thanks ...

From Screen 2 Scrap - Pirates of the Carribean

I have been working on this LO, since the first of Feb ... I truly thought nothing was ever going to come of it. It is a LO for From Screen 2 Scrap this months movie title is Pirates of the Caribbean - at world's end, and you need to have a skull or 2, and for extra points a pirate ship, a parrot and a sword. I just could not come up with anything that I really liked ... until I took my boys to 'Tunza Fun' for a birthday party a few days ago, they were playing mini golf in a 'pirate' themed course ... and I just happened to have my camera !!! I seriously could not believe my eyes, when I saw this pirate statue, and the boys were more than happy to oblige.

So here's my take on the challenge, thanks ...

Valentines Scrapping

I joined in on a cybercrop this weekend at Mad About Scrappin I have only done 1 challenge so far, but hope to do another one before the 22 Feb deadline. The Challenge was to use the title '10 things I love about you' as it's a Valentines/Love theme. I was also required to use a scallop edge and a photo slide (arrange photos like a film strip). This is my take on the challenge.
I have used Bella - damsel PP's, Tell your story - journalling cards and finishing touches rub-ons.
I can't wait for the cybercrop this weekend at Scrap of Difference ! Put it in your diary Ladies !!

Gelli Baff ?

Thought I'd try to get 2 challenges done in 1 layout !! Here's how I went ... I have completed the Circle challenge at Aussie Girls Gone Scrappin which required circles (atleast 3), stars and hand writting and combined it with the ARTastic challenge for the month too, which is a painting by Mary Cassatt - 'The Bath'. The second page below is my February Calendar page ! I adore this photo of my youngest one Ryan !

Something special : )

We are into the 2nd month of the year and I am pretty proud to say, I completed 15 Layout's last month ! Most of which were for on-line challenges, definitely my new passion !!
Yesterday, I completed 2 Layouts for challenges. The first of which was for Aussie Girls Gone Scrappin, this time I have entered into the Color Challenge which was brown and I was required to use Rhinestones, Pearls and Bows. Brown is not really a colour I would usually choose, so I enjoyed the challenge, and also took to my page with a stapler for the first time !
The second layout is for a site I found just yesterday called Born2create, I was really inspired by the January Sketch Challenge, so thought, nothing like leaving it to the last minute and entered.

Last but not least, I was chosen as one of the Guest DT's at Screen2scrap, so privileged and can't wait to find out more !!
Thanks ...
