Saturday crafting

Hello this was the lo from last week I never uploaded but I was quite pleased with it.
This next lo is this weeks weekly challenge on us. The challenge was to use a sketch, shades of one colour this is actually green and a one word title. It was nice to scrap some old pics too.
This third one I have wanted to do for a while but couldn't get the papers to work for me bu I have now!
This is some American crafts that worked well with the black and white photo.
This next lo is my final one to show you. The papers came this week they were reduced at atdml so I couldn't resist. The lo is of Colchester castle park and the 4 kids swinging together before they moved to America......hope u like this mel x
thank you for looking. Xxx

Sunday scrapbooking

Hello and thanks for coming back to see what i have been upto.
Amanda talked about the simple recipie monthly challenges over on uks yesterday which i had a look at there was a colour scheme, hot pink, brown and stone grey, a sketch and a further suggestion of using textures. The idea of this was to look at old stash in a new way so i dug out a very old gogo kit and came up with this, its not as much pink as i would have liked, the sketch is there or thereabouts and there is texture in the lace and cupcake and flower. This is october 2010 the girls first birthday party. Well my second challenge today was to use the recipie for an a4 sized lo...well as you can see from the colour scheme that didnt actually work but i sort of used the sketch and this time i dug into an old sarahscards kit so not all was lost as it was using up old bits and pieces.

I have quite enjoyed doing some los this week so we will see what else is in store and if i am feeling inspired to create anything else later.

Another week another uks challenge!

So i promised to be a better team memeber and contribute more over on my uks team this year so i decided to do the second weekly challenge. The challenge was something old, something new and some bling.
Well the photo is new - taken NYE and one of the most recently i have printed. The papers are old, possibly 2009 but not totally sure i have certainly had them for quite a white and as i didnt buy much last year i don't think they are 2011 papers. The bling is the title which is glittery.
My crop is not running this weekend so no crafting for me there although i am hoping to meetup with a crafty friend next weekend to turn out a lo or two...hopefully i might get back to you with something else before then.
As always thanks for reading

2012 scrapbooking...

hello everyone and welcome to 2012
well i did promise not to leave it so long with my scrapbooking and my blogging but i have been busy although i havent posted anything.
Each December i like to do the dec daily and this year i did it again although i haven't got around to finishing it yet. I have managed to do the first 20 pages so i am getting there. I haven't got around to uploading any pages yet but i will some point.
I have got a bit bored of it and although i didnt want to start anything else incase i didnt go back to it, i am trying to be a better team member for my uks team so i thought i would do the weekly challenge for jan week 1. Sadly i did not manage to find my gold pen so couldnt do the doodling but i have used the circle and old stash, this was an old sarahs cards kit for 2010 so i think that counts....
I have lots more ideas of things to scrap including liking this weeks pencillines sketch - lineon the right side of my blog so i may have to give that a go.
Thanks for reading x
