CCW March mini challenge

There’s a new challenge at Creative Craft World. All you have to do is make something blue that measures less than 12”x12”. Could be a card, a CJ page, an inchie, a twinchie, an ATC, an altered item, just about anything other than a 12x12 scrapbook page!

The minikit is gorgeous – it features the MME Be Happy collection. Here’s what I did with mine (and there’s tons left over!)

March Scrapology Challenge

Here is my page for the March scraplift challenge at Scrapology.

The layout features a photograph of Sophia at the beach with her Uncle Dave, who she absolutely adores. :o) I have used some gorgeous felt buttons from Susibee and there is glitter on the cut out flowers (sorry it doesn’t show in the photo).

With apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight.

Scrapping at Olney

At last I have managed to photograph and upload some of the scrapping I did on our team retreat at Olney last week. They are all for challenges at UK Scrappers.

The first two are the beginning of a series of pages I’m planning featuring photographs of Michael’s family. I have a box of them and my MiL, bless her, has written the date and who’s who on most of them which makes scrapping a lot easier.

Tim Holtz Configurations Box

Last week, whilst on our team retreat, we had a class from configurations boxLinda Elbourne. We had asked her to show us what to do with a TH Configurations Box … and she certainly did that. The Belles had a fab day and we all loved our boxes.

Do have a look at Linda’s blog A Crafting Journey – it’s well worth a visit.

PS Thank you Jen and Karen for the photos. :o)

The Studio sketch challenge Feb 19

now we are 60

 Here is the page I did for a challenge at The Studio. We were asked to use this sketch.

The studio sketch







I saw the idea for the white  grids in the May issue of Scrap 365 on a page by Kirsty Smith. They are very effective but easy to do – just dip the edge of a piece of card into white paint and press it on the backing cardstock – simples!

Thank you for your visit. :o)

Now We Are Six by A.A. Milne

When I was one I had just begun
When I was two I was nearly new
When I was three I was hardly me
When I was four I was not much more
When I was five I was just alive
But now I am six, I'm as clever as clever;
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.
