The look

Just popping in for a quick share ... here is my take on a quote challenge, for Challenge Heaven He's / She's got the look, add criteria to use a shipping tag. Just had to scrap this gorgeous pic of my son : ) the tag is there but altered a fair bit, both the glimmermists I wanted to use both clogged up on me, so I splattered and blotched. New Challenges up on the first, looking forward to my first load of challenges as site coordinator !!

After a touch procrastinating I have done another LO : ) Seem to spend a lot of my time looking on line for inspiration, then pottering around the craft area, shuffling things ... This one is for a Challenge Heaven, Color Challenge. The colors are Soft pink, brown plus a color of your choice. I decided I didn't want to add an extra color. The criteria was to also use stamping ... which I enjoyed !! Love a bit of stamping, no point just collecting them !
I have used my stamps to clear emboss in the corners, also used timber brown staz on on transparency to create a little flourish and also a sneaky stamp on the title piece ... oh and also a script stamp on the flower ... I think that's it LOL !!
My father is going to hate that I have used pink in a LO with him in it hehehe !!

Here's a close up of some of the stamping !!
Thank for stopping by ... x

Party Animals

I am loving Kaisercraft's May release, Party Animals and Chapter One, this month they have sticker sheets that really compliment the PP's. I have had a play with the Party Animals and here is my LO to share with you ! I have also used Dusty Attic Flags. I only needed a section of what was in the packet, which is great value : ) I have sponged Kaiser paint on them to give them a vibrant color !

You can check out the PP's and chipboard embellishments and also some super cute mini stamps and much more HERE ... and you can also see a huge range of Dusty Attic Chipboard too !!

Hope to have a 'Chapter One' share for you very soon ...

Challenge Heaven News !

Well as my followers would know, I have been doing a lot of Challenges at Challenge Heaven this year. I really like hanging out there, not only are the Challenges fun and exciting, but I enjoy the on-line community feel. I have made friends and at times when my mojo has been absent, I was still able to admire others work and also chat about every day things.
Somethings have changed lately at Challenge Heaven, the main change has been
I am the new site coordinator
I am very excited about this new challenge in my life, and have already jumped straight in to my new role. Next month we will start having weekly challenges, and we will also be having a Cyber Crop !!
Hope that you can pop over and join us sometime : )
I also have a share, this is for National Scrapbooking Day, which was last sat. It is a page about ME !!

gotta laugh ...

Well I'm feeling like I'm off to a pretty good start this month, I have completed my 2nd challenge for May : ) This one is for my Challenge Heaven's Ebony OR Ivory LO, I have chosen to go with Ebony as I thought it would really make the Lime green POP !
I have used 2 pics of my DS6, he randomly will ask (if he sees me with camera) take a photo of this mum. On this particular day, it was a piece of chalk ... The photo was a hilarious funny face ! I laughed so hard and showed him and we both laughed and laughed ... he then said 'ok, now take another one' ! Then he smiled this Joker like smile and his eyes look like they are going to pop out ! We all laughed at the 2 pics together!
Not one of those perfect photo moments, but definitely something worth cherishing.
I am a tad pedantic when it comes to challenges and so I have strictly used NOTHING but Ebony and Lime green, it's just the way I am, If I do a sketch challenge, it will be very close to the original, I guess bending the rules might come with time ?
Criteria was to also use stamping, so I have used Kaiser - Grunge stamp to alter the background PP behind the pics, Ali Edwards stamps to create the journaling space and also a Tim Holtz Harlequin pattern stamp on the base.

Thank for looking, off to see what challenge takes my fancy next .... so many choices : )

KIU - together ...

Well I can hardly believe it is May already, so thought seen as I only completed 1 challenge last month, this month is going to be different (well that's the plan anyway) !!
This morning I spent my time stalking all my favorite challenge sites, full of excitement for new challenges : ) The Kraft It Up Challenge took my eye as it's criteria is no pp's, I thought thats easy I can just start with a piece of Kraft and any photo and go from there. Sometimes the photo and color matching can be the hard part for me, so this time I got my DS6 to pick the photos for me to scrap ... and this is the result

I have used a couple of Glimmer screens with Denim Blue Glimmermist to create the background. I have used tissue paper soaked in the same glimmermist, which is a first for me and also the texture paste with a stamp in it, under the title is also a first for me : ) gotta love trying new things ! I have also used a Lime Tree Creations Doily handmade by the lovely Becci, just to name a few of the goodies !
Take care for now, thanks for popping by x
