Mix it up - Mixer 29

I've found a great challenge blog Mix it up. It looks fun and funky, this weeks challenge was to use Foil and Masking tape on your LO. It was quite a challenge as it turned out LOL

I used foil behind 2 of the small pics and the "world" font is masking tape sprayed with glimmer mist and put throught the bigshot! I also used glimmer mist to create the coloured squares, Felt thickers and I forget who the small circle rub on was from!

Looking forward to seeing more challenges from there

Here is my take

Used SEI pp for flowers
Bg buttons
scrumpled brown paper for leaves
We R Memory keepers glazed snap
Various bits from my craft box!
Really enjoyed this challenge and it was sort of a different style for me

OLW - 60 - Invincible

OLW challenge word up 60

Invincible: incapable of being conquered, defeated, or subdued.

Also a lovely sketch by Beck Fleck of page maps

This certainly describes our little Peggy Poo, despite looking like she is going to take off with those ears she was in fact a very poorly puppy. Our vet described it as the worst chest infection he had ever seen in a pup that young, we seriously thought we were going to lose her. She battled thru and is now a fine happy young lady who we love so very much!

I used Dreamstreet skywriting pp and BG oh baby boy Matthew pp along with a few stamped clouds and plane (love elsie - toby)

There is hidden journaling under the "runway", which reads something along the lines of the above, which slides out


52 weeks sketch #36

I am so rubbish at taking nice pics of my LO's if anyone can give me some tips I would be grateful!
This was created using MME Laundry line glittered cs some AC chip flowers gems and the flower embellie I made using beads and glossy accents(one of my essential scrap items)
The desserts in our fave restaurant Tessaro's in Zante were yummy!

Conversation with Leon

Leon "we've lost a saucepan lid" (puzzled expression on his face)
Me "oh it's in my craft room"
Leon (by now totally perplexed look on his face) "may I borrow it"?
Just a quickie but made me giggle. Will have some pics to share tomorrow

All about me challenge

This was the challenge

I Wish I May, I Wish I Might.....

Can you remember as a child, wishing upon the first star you saw? What did you wish for? As you've grown older, have those wishes changed? Your challenge is to create a layout focused on what you wish for.

And this is my take on it

For as long as I can remember I have wished for a dog and now look my wish has come true x2

Tried some sort of shadow doodling on this one and hand drew and cut the scrolls, a scrap of my fave crate paper (only enough for 1 more LO now) BG alphas and unknown but very nice rub ons

I am pleased with how it turned out

It took me all day

But I have finished the covers for my book

I will probably add something to the back cover later on but just left it as it is for now

I have learnt something today and that is I am outdated!! my daughter has just bought a new pair of boots and I swear they are stilts in disguise!! I am behind the times lol

A new month and a new challenge!

Today is the start of the "Learn something New everyday" class that I decided to join over at Shimelle.com. I am really quite clueless as to what to do but I have made a start on my album covers and have decided to use Fancy pants 'Celebrate' range of papers throughout the book so I don't have to think to much about the actual papers for the pages each day. I'm sure all will become apparent in due course LOL.
