Harry Potter

These are a few pages from a Hogwarts Spell and Potion Book that I have made for a Harry Potter Party!!!!!!

I cut my paper to size and then soaked it with tea and coffee...then put it in the oven to crinkle nicely!!!!! I used various stamps on the pages after I found lots of spells and potions!!!!!!! LOL

I am entering the challenge at Scrap Africa which they required you to use distressing with a household item.

I am also entering Scraping4Fun challenge that required a stamp to be used.

Both challenges close at the end of the month so still time to distress and stamp!!!

Mum and Dad

This photo of my Mum and Dad was taken in July 1943 when my Mum was 22 and Dad 24 and he was obviously on leave from the army.  We always thought Mums' hat was funny and she always maintained that she couldn't remember it!!!
I used a real doily that I soaked in tea to get a softer colour and I made the frame from chipboard which I embossed and then spent all day trying to get the colour right with paints and mists!!!

I used the sketch from Scrapology....and the extra criteria was to use a poem.  I opted for a poem by Patience Strong as she was a favourite of Mum!!


The challenge at Scrapology closes on the 5th May so loads of time to enter!!!

I am also entering this into the challenge at Pinque Peacock Challenge 4 - Flowers.  I did use a few!! LOL

This challenge ends at the end of the loads of time to get your flowers out!!

Sew Me!!!

I really enjoyed doing this layout!!!  I used the button idea from Liz at Soul Scrappers...done a similar thing with un-used alphas but this used loads of buttons...of which I have a few!! LOL

I covered a piece of 8x8 card in buttons and then painted with gesso and then used various mists until I got a colour I quite liked!!!!!

I used the sketch from Kreative Koncepts....

....well I did start with it....turned it round so the triangles were at the top as I knew I wanted to do bunting.........and then I seemed to veer off!!!!!! LOL

The challenge at Kreative Koncepts ends at the end of the loads of time to get scrapping!!

I am also entering it at Archi-scraps.......
This is the image......

....and the extra criteria is triangles....bunting!!

This challenge also closes at the end of the loads of time!!!

This layout is for the sketch challenge 54 at Sketch-n-Scrap.
