I have been blog hopping and found another challenge!!!
This one was definitely different in that you used the initial of your name and then chose a colour beginning with that letter!!!!!!! Colours beginning with 'J' are thin on the ground....so I settled for Jade as that was the only one I could come up with!! LOL The other colour I picked was white!
The challenge ends on the 6th February....so plenty of time to enter!!!
I have just found this blog and there was a fun sketch challenge...I do love a sketch!!!
This is my layout.....
I had lots of odd white alphas with no vowels so used them over a sheet of white cardstock....and then inked them a bit!! At least I have used them.....cleared a bit of space and not wasted them!! The arrow is going round '5th' because that is the year that Alex is in!!
Here is the sketch....and I didn't do too badly with it!! LOL
The challenge ends on the 31st January so still time to enter!!
Super sketch for January.....I do love a sketch!!! Obviously I made a few additions!!!
These photos were taken on our caravan holiday last year. The children love Partyring biscuits and while Sharon popped out to get more milk for breakfast they started their breakfast with these biscuits!!! Well they thought it hilarious to use them to peep through....only Nicholas and Cassie couldn't quite do it like Alex!!!
Here is the sketch...
The challenge runs until 14th February....so loads of time to enter!!
This is the second sketch of the month and I thought it would be suitable for photos from Krakow. The sketch was two photos but I printed two on each 6x4 which wasn't a problem as I was going to put them together to look like the sketch!! This is where it went wrong!! I printed them 'landscape' instead of 'portrait'!! It wasn't until I had triple mounted them that I realised that I didn't have enough room for the extra papers etc......I did cut lots of different bracket shapes but in the end I gave in and finished the layout as you see!!!!!!!
I am pleased with the end result. My first layout of our trip to Krakow and some of the nice bits......we had a super time but obviously some of the time it was very sad!!
This is the sketch....
Still time to enter as the challenge closes at the end of the month!!
This is definitely what I have to do....Scrap My Stash!!!
The challenge this month is 5-4-3-2-1.....another challenge that was quite hard and I had to think about!!
I scrapped photos of a crabbing day down at the beach.....the children love it!! Catch the crabs....count them....put them back!!! I do wonder if the crabs get fed up being caught and put back!!! LOL As both the boys got 'pinched' I guess they do!!! Hence the title 'Crabs Pinch'!!!!!!!!!!
5 = Photos
4 = Patterned Papers
3 = 3x3 shells
2 = 2 Word Title (or could have 2 cardstock!)
1 = Rubon ( the word 'summer' in the bottom cluster)
The papers I used were Kaisercraft Rock Pool Collection which I have had for ages so about time I used them!!! LOL
The challenge runs until the end on the month so lots of time to enter!!
The sketch challenge at Sarah's cards uses more than one photo....which is good for me as I always have too many photos!!!!
The photos are from Cassie's 4th birthday....I got her some girly lego so she had her own and didn't have to ask the boys for theirs!!!
Here is the sketch....followed it quite well...I am getting better!!!!
The challenge closes on the 31st January so plenty of time to enter!!!
My mojo went walkabout for a little while...but now the New Year is here.....and this is my first challenge!
I used a photo of Lee wearing Cassie's shower cap because it was so funny!! Lee shaves his head and I got the shower cap for Cassie to save her hair getting wet when she showers/baths...and when Lee put it on she said..." You have no hair Daddy...you only have a head"!!!! So true...but so funny from a 4year old!!!!!! So it had to be scrapped!!!
I used the sketch + buttons from Scrapology......
The challenge ends on 5th February so lots of time to enter!!
......and their challenge ends on the 20th January...so be quick to enter!!!
The criteria was to include sparkles, mix of alphas, two staples and a fun photo...and to take inspiration from the image!!
I sprinkled sequins over because they were on the hat, used three different alphas, the bottom strips which refer to Cassie's comment are stapled on...and I definitely think it is a fun photo!!! The inspiration was Christmas and I used a tree and the papers were Ruby Rock-It 'Joyeux Noel' collection.
