Scrappers Block Challenge

Lou, one of our Bumps & Babes members posted on UKS this morning about her new blog, http://scrappersblockchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ and the first challenge was to scrap without patterned paper. Some of you will know how long it took me to be able to scrap with patterned paper, and now I can't do without it! So ideas have been mulling around in my head all day, and finally with Chloe in bed asleep, I've managed to produce this, which I'm quite pleased with!

I ran the black bazzil squares through my big shot using a cuttlebug embossing folder, the hearts were given to me in a swap ages ago. The journalling spot is by Making Memories, and the photo of Missy was taken by my husband, Dave.

Sorry the photo's aren't great, it's gone dark outside now and the light in this room is quite bad.

That's another layout for Helen's Challenge, number 15! Weeks 16 & 17 to catch up with now!

LPD Crop & Week 13 & 14!

It was the LPD Crop today and I had a fab time and managed to produce to LO's and start another which is a WIP (work in progress).
This first one is for the SLYMI week 16 challenge, scrap in the morning, which I just managed!

I used the gorgous My Mommy & Me papers, which I then used as my title too!

A special thanks to Kirsty for giving me the brown scalloped paper, the water droplets and the last 's'!
That's weeks 13 & 14 completed of Helen's challenge, just week 15 & 16 to catch up on now!

What MORE scrapping?!

Yes MORE! Another 2 layouts, I'm on a roll! Helen I hope you are proud of me! I still have another 3 to go to catch up though!

I've also done these layouts for the Scrap Like You Mean It SLYMI Challenge on UKS, Week 13 asked for a layout using stamps, so I have created a stamped embellishment and I've been very brave and stamped straight onto the photograph!

This layout is for Week 15 of SLYMI, where we had to use some sort of edge, so I drew round a chipboard book to get the bracket edged paper.

I haven't done Week 14 of SLYMI, it needs something hidden on it, and I've a few ideas but it's taking some thinking about!

Helen's Challenge Weeks 11 & 12 are now complete! Weeks 13, 14 & 15 to catch up with!

Scrapping! Week 10 of Helen's Challenge

Unfortunately I've been really poorly all week with S&D, sorry if TMI but on the plus side I've lost 6lb! Anyway, I digress! I was unable to go to the LPD crop so instead, I managed to get my craft room half habitable so I could do some scrapping! (It still needs alot of sorting out though!)

I caught upto date with my LPD AMOP CJ and I managed a Layout too! I used a sketch from the mojoholder blog. I also got carried away with staple kisses which I copied of Helen, they are great for attaching ribbon! Thanks! :o)

I used a scrapagogo kit which had My Minds Eye papers, and lots of other stuff! So that's week 10 of the challenge, another 4 weeks to go to catch up I think!
