I had a 'sleepover' at Christmas and Alex gave me his bed and shared Nicholas room! Was lovely...Alex made the bed, left me a note and put awesome on the light box....could actually have a drink too as I wasn't driving and I came home on 27th December!!
This is for another challenge at GoGo...and I followed the instructions precisely!!!!
The boys did a swimathon to raise money for Marie Curie and managed to raise £100!!! Well done boys!!
The thickers are actually glitter ones but they haven't photographed very well!!
Love this photo of Alex thinking he is being cool!!!
I am entering the challenge at The Studio who want you to scraplift a DT layout. I chose to scraplift a Lisa-Marie layout that two of the other DT had used....I loved all the layers but probably went a bit overboard!!!
I am also entering the challenge at Hey Little Magpie who had a list to choose from....
You can only use 5 items from the following list.
5 patterned papers
No cardstock background
Wood veneer / wood shapes
Die cut pack
Coloured cardstock - not white or black
Hand / machine stitching
I used Patterned papers...I hope it was more than 5 and not just 5!!
Coloured cardstock for matting photos - cream and green
Thickers - Memo Burlap
Wood - tree
.....fun to pick!!!
Just realised that I don't think this layout will be eligible for this challenge as I used brads and ribbon and a couple of other bits that are not on the list!!! Hey ho!!!
One Sunday afternoon Sharon thought it would be a good idea to visit the lock! It was a glorious sunny day...especially as it was October and we had a lovely afternoon wandering along beside the river before we gave in and had tea/coffee and cake!
I used Rochelle Spear's sketch.....
...and the inspiration from Stacy photo where I picked the pink to blend with my jumper!
The Scrappy Friends challenges close at the end of the month so lots of time to get crafty!!
All the challenges at Lasting Memories this month are color themed. This week it is black/white/green. I found this super photos of the children all up in the air and managed to match the green of the grass!!!
Was pleased with the result!
The challenges close at the end of the month so lots of time to join in!
One of Sharon and Lee's Christmas presents 2017 from me was a Quad Bike Experience which they took in January at Tonbridge in Kent...they said it was lots of fun biking through mud!!!
I have found a new challenge blog 'Stick It Down'...and I hope the sketch is for inspiration as I don't do 'hearty' things....but got all the bits sticking out!!! Also ages ago I made a 'tread' stamp at a class so had to use that too for the mud!!
This is the sketch.......
The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time to get crafty!!! They also have a double layout sketch and a card sketch...so lots of choice!!
I love this photo of Alex that I took at the beach in October. It was taken about lunchtime so not late...but it was just how the light was reflecting on the sea! If I had tried to take this kind of photo it wouldn't have happened!!!
I am entering this layout in the challenge at More Than Words.
The challenge closes at the end of the month so lots of time......
I have been scrapping this weekend so now time to upload to some challenges!
At White with 1.... for February it is Red plus a sketch for inspiration! I got so carried away with what I wanted to do I forgot to use the sketch...just as well it is optional! I did in fact scraplift one of my layouts that I did at a GoGo getaway back in 2015! Really it was because I found I had some of the papers with feathers on which I fussy cut!!!
This is the layout but I can't remember who did the layout class...sorry! Was pleased with my scraplift....don't often scraplift my own layouts!!
The challenge closes at the end of the month so loads of time to join in!!
