Don't get in a flap

Found a new challenge site called Mission to create where you have a list of 5 "ingriedients" to incorporate onto your LO
The concepts for this time were
Use photobooth pics
Use Brads
Use 6 pieces of pp 1" or smaller
Stitch a border
Use this colour scheme

You have to use at least 3 of the 5
I created this and almost managed all 5, but I did
1.use brads (the cat and the photo turns)
2.Use the colour scheme
3.Stitch a border
My pics were almost photobooth and I use a couple of small squares of paper (unless you cheat and say the alpha stickers are pp LOL)
This was a real fun LO of daft Peggy poking her head thru the cat flap as she does when she wants letting back in!!
Hope you enjoyed looking, all crticism/praise gratefully recieved

By The Sea

Been wanting to scrap this picture for ages but couldn't find the right look. I found a pad of Basic Grey granola and I loved how the colours matched. Along with a title from Scrap that Poetry and sketch 199 from Pencil Lines I was well underway.

I am very pleased with the end result and I love how Rodney looks somehow majestic in this pic of him by the sea at Challaborough Bay

Sketchy Thursdays 8.5 sketch

Decided to play along again at Sketchy Thursdays again this week 
This was the sketch

And here is my take on it
Used American crafts - Craft fair again ( I love this range) and some nice glossy metallic thickers
There is journalling along the black scalloped border that reads "The higher the balloon went the more you giggled". My beautiful Grandaughter and her pizza hut balloon
