Sunday Stampers Challenge

Here is my Love themed tag for Helen's Sunday Stampers challenge. I used Fired Brick distress ink on the tag, spritzed with water, stamped and embossed my image, then sprayed with Bronze Glimmer Mist and edged my tag with gold Krylon.

Overlooked Challenge

Here is my LO for Those Little Things We Overlook challenge on UKS. The theme was coffee mugs but I drink tea so mine has tea in!! There is a mistake in the journalling but I am hoping nobody will notice it - well not too much anyway!

Awake Louise!!

I liked my other LO so much that I made of Louise that I wanted to make another so it would be a DLO in my album - again this was for the Elsie Flannigan 52 Week Challenges. So I again used a ribbon border for one of the challenges, and made my own chipboard flower for the other one!

Animal Challenge Card

This is a card for the Arty Girlz Challenge which was to make something with an Animal theme! I love this cow stamp and love it with yellow and black - wasn't sure about the black flower but I think it worked well!

Sleeping Louise

This LO is for 2 challenges from a book I am working through and as I am behind I did the two on one page! One challenge was to make a ribbon border, and the other is to cut a chipboard shape and decorate it. I cut the large flower with my Big Shot and painted it with acrylic paints, used a Marvy Le Plume pen for the stitched effect, and finished it off with a Prima flower and brad.

Christmas Tilda

Early I know, but I made a Christmas card today! There is a challenge on UKS called Rudolph Day and the idea is to make some Christmas cards on the 25th of every month so as to have some ready in good time! Here is my Tilda one.

Georgia's First Birthday

Here is a LO I did a little while ago about Georgia's first birthday - seems a long time ago, she will be 9 next month!!

Louise again!

As I like to do DLO's for my albums, I have made another page to go with the one I made of Louise a few days ago. This time I have used the colour photos that I took on the day, and used embellishments in colours to match.

I have done this LO for a scrapbooking challenge - we had to print out a colour photo in black and white and make it the focal point of the page. I used this one of Louise I took when she was 6 weeks old. I think it has all come out a little dark, as when I took the photo of the finished page the flash glared right on the photo so I took the flash off! Not really very technical so wasn't sure what else to do!!

Flowers Fat Book Page

The Fat Book challenge on CSF this time is Flowers, one of my favourite subjects, so this is my page. I used Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint Distress Inks, and the main flower is one of the Artistic Stamper flowers.

One of my New Year's Resolutions is again to do more scrapbooking and I am hoping to join in with more challenges on UKScrappers this year. I have bought a book, Elsie Flannigans 52 Challenges, and hope to be able to complete one a week! This is the first one, where we chose a quote and cut it up to use on a LO.
