Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #40 - Use a Doily

The new theme on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges for the next 2 weeks is to Use a Doily.  For my DT work I made a journal page and used Distress Ink on my doily and Dylusion spray for the background (which is still staining my hand 24 hours later!).

Spooky Twinchie

The new theme on Show Us Your Twinchie Challenge Blog this time is Spooky Stuff, so I have made my little twinchie using a piece of a Tim Holtz sticker image, inky background, stamped and Stickled!  It's come out a little dark, will try and get a better pic if the light picks up!

Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #39 - Cute and Cuddly

The new theme for the next 2 weeks on Ruby's Rainbow Challenges is Cute and Cuddly.  I decided to think outside the box and made a LO of my cute granddaughter and her cuddly toy!  It matches the one I blogged a few days ago as I wanted a DLO of  her day out.

A Twinchie at Last!

I used to love making twinchies (2" x 2"), and inchies and fat pages and all sorts but haven't got round to it much lately and when I discovered the Show us Your Twinchies Challenge Blog I thought it would be a good chance to make one again!  Their theme this time is Anything Goes so here is mine and I thoroughly enjoyed making it!

The Happy Scrappers Ch#6 - Pets/Animals

Our 6th challenge already on The Happy Scrappers, and for the next month the theme is Pets/Animals. Although I have many pets, I decided to do my LO using photos of my granddaughter visiting Paradise Wildlife Park and feeding some animals.  I used a DCWV paper stack and embellishments I have had for a while and they matched perfectly!

I'm also entering this for
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Animals

R for Recycle, Repurpose

The new theme chosen by Roxx on the Alphabet Challenge Blog for the next 2 weeks is R for Recycle, Repurpose.  I have been making a calendar throughout the year, and I have recycled the backing card from packs of cards and envelopes to make my calendar pages, gessoing them before decorating them.

The Cupboard Trilogy Ch#4 - Things With Wings

Goodness we are up to our 4th challenge already now on The Cupboard Trilogy challenge blog, and for this month the theme is Things With Wings.  I decided to make my DT LO using photos I have taken in the garden of butterflies and insects.  I used some pretty K & Co bp which didn't need a great deal adding to it really so just popped a few bits here and there!

Sparkles Christmas Challenge #21 - Traditional
