Challenges at Scrap With V

I took part in the CC over at Scrap With V last week. But life was way too hectic for the week and I didn't get to upload them in time to be part of the judging. Oh well, maybe next time.

This was Annie's challenge. Had to take inspiration from a poem that Annie had very cleverly penned herself to the rhythm of "These are A Few Of My Favourite Things" from the Soumd Of Music. Also had to use brown paper packages tied up with string as an embellishment. This is Braiden, he has been so enchanted by the Christmas tree this year. I was catching him just sitting on the lounge and staring at the tree with a smile on his face. He had just one little problem though....I was told regularly that the tree was beautiful but it was missing something. When I asked what was missing, I was promptly told "The presents!!!!" LOL

This is KylieJ's challenge. We had to use a Christmas photo, 1 Christmas paper, stick to the CC colours, use lots of bling and use acetate in a creative way. I cut out the Christmas tree shape and used a Hambly Screenprint in my shape and just decorated it. The photo is of Robbie and Declan when they were little in home made Sants beards and their Santa hats.

This is a closer shot of the tree to show the screen print.

This is Jodi's live mystery challenge. I completed it later because I forgot (I know I'm naughty) that it was on. Jodi gave us the instructions and we all went from there. Loved the way the tissue paper flowers turned out. This is Braiden eating some little cakes that we couldn't resist buying for him when we saw them last Christmas.
This was a sketch challenge by Tina. No criteria on this one, just keep it like the sketch. This is Robbie and Declan when they were younger at the ABC Daycare Christmas party held at Southbank. I got to use some photos here that I never thought I would ever use because they were to dodgy. But you;ll never know what you'll use.

My darling boys posing in their very first christmas photo shoot. I took them down the road so there was no "civilisation" in the background and took photos of them amongst the dry grass to depict a true Aussie Bush christmas in the dry, parched bush!!

I did this for the Hot Chocolate Challenge on Scrapbudz. Had to use lavender and white on chocolate base.
Another Scrapbudz challenge - latte and cream this time. Had to use lemon and white on coffee or latte base.
Blind challenge by Sammi on Scrapbudz.
Card from cc at Scrap With V.
These next pages are from a cc I took part in at Scrap With V. Had loads of fun doing the pages and actually got to use older photos that I didn't think I'd ever use!!

This is for the Black with 2 challenge blogspot for November. Criteria was dominant black, aqua and white, a scallop border and some punching on base cardstock.

Some more work

This is from my DT pack at Scrapbudz. The paper is Ruby Rocket from Bella that I cut the outer part from and used on the layout below.

This is my DT page for Shabbychic Butterflys and Bows for this month's challenge.

Some stuff just for me!!!

This one I did just coz I wanted too!!! I painted the frame, glimmermisted over masks on the mirror and then added the quote and flowers. Quote says "Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer." Denis Waitley.

This I have had for a while and not totally sure what to do with it. I had a basic idea in my head but wasn't sure after that. It's a 12x12 chipboard cutout from Buzz and Bloom. So the other day I just sat and played and ended up with this!!!!!!!!!!!

Some DT work and challenges for Scrapbudz

My take on sketch #2 at Scrapbudz. Love the bright colours on this one.

Darling Declan again!!!! From my DT pack. This one pushed my boundary somewhat. Not a patterned paper that I would normally buy so I really had to think about how to use this one.

Braiden having a boogie!! Using Hot Chocolate colours and sketch #3 over at Scrapbudz.
Another one from my DT pack at Scrapbudz. Another boundary pusher......the paper didn't "talk" to me so I had to coerce an opinion out of it!!!!! LOL

Sammi's challenge from the September "Girl's Night In" (aka cybercrop). Do a LO on your family using red and black. And why are we dressed up????? We had to go to my Uncle's wedding dressed as hippies!!!!

A blind challenge and a Shabby Chic DT page

The lovely Sammi set us a blind challenge over at Scrapbudz. She heard about the thing I have about putting birds on pages (I just don't understand it) and set about to fix the situation for me. So now I have a page with an obvious bird on it!!! Thanks Sammi!!!

This is my example for this month's challenge at Shabby Chic Butterflys and Bows. The challenge was set by Jodi Dolbel this month. The criteria is primary white, flowers and beading with inspiration to be taken from a picture that Jodie found. Have a go and see what you come up with and email it in by November 16. Click here for a lookey see!!!

My win at Pink Paislee

My name was drawn out of the hat the other week in a competition at Pink Paislee in connection to Facebook. I was meant to receive a sheet of each of the patterned papers from each of the new releases. There was some of the new ranges in my little parcel and a whole lot more. I was very impressed with my little haul. Thanks Pink Paislee!!
