Another scrapping Session

Well another productive afternoon I am pleased to report! I sat down to do the uks weekly challenge first of all. The elements to include were "something you take for granted", ""vibrant colours", "old stash" and "round". This lo is inspired by my love to shop which is something i have been lucky enough to take for granted...however, I have a baby on the way so things might not be that easy going forward and I will miss this. Needless to say i am stocking up on gorgeous stash now incase i cannot have new stuff in the months to come! The patterned paper is from the august (i think or july) gogokit its the comso cricket girl friday paper which i love and quite bright colours too. The old stash is the blingy heart and there is a circle on the lo too so I am claiming full points for my uks team.

Here is a close up of the journalling for you to read - hopefully it can be seen!
This second lo i did was inspired by PL155 although with my own spin of course. I have used the pink paisley fetching papers and embellies along with some thickers for the lo. This is a lo for my vegas album (as are a couple of the other I have done this afternoon). The album did not have many lo's with multiphotos so this one was nice to do.

The third lo was inspired by Twisted Sketches no 18 although I have used the sketch only more than the twist which was to put ribbon on the lo - I have used rikrak though. This lo has been made from the September Sarahscards kit which is cosmo cricket early bird - yes I am rather obsesssed with cosmo at the moment!lol. The is a lo for my vegas album. This is my brother at this time he was winning - as you can imagine there were many wins and many losses too!.

This 4th lo again is for the vegas album and I have used some we are memories keep papers - i think they are called white collection. I have also used some daisy bucket rub ons too. The title is so appropriate as this is my husband and step-dad who were constantly larking around - I think my hubby is such a bad influence although looking at the photo my step-dad doesn't look like he needed much encouragement! The photos were taken in the ventian hotel in vegas.

This final lo is loosely based on Twisted sketch 17 but turned around. The lo is for a family album i am doing following the wedding party my mum had last year. The album only has about 7 lo's so far so has a way to go before completing. I will continue to chip away at it though!

Well thats all for today. Thanks for reading!
