My Show and Tell

As I mentioned in yesterdays post...I have been scrapping up a storm here in the past few days. Some I can share, some I can't just yet. I have hit a wall though, I AM OUT OF DOUBLE SIDED TAPE!! Oh day tomorrow and I can feel a trip to the LSS coming on.

This weeked just gone was a cybercrop weekend at Chookscraps. Wow! There were a lot of people participating this time and the quality of work if fantastic! If you haven't already been to look make sure you go check it out.

The first challenge was to create a layout that has a monogram, beads and some curves. The curves could anything from circles to rounded corners to swirls. This was my take on the challenge.Sorry bout the dodgy scan but the chipboard flowers and the beads have made it a little lumpy bumpy.

The second challenge was to make a layout using the colours green and gold - it could have other colours in it but green and gold need to be the main colours You also had to add some colour to the layout using either chalk or coloured pencil and your layout had to have some dots on it.
I have had this paper for a while now wondering what to do with it. I love the colours (not what I would normally use) and I love how they have worked in well with the photo of Boo and Lolly.

For the third challenge we had a sketch to follow. I had these very bright photos of Boo to use and was tossing up weather to convert them to black and white or not. I just couldn't do it.

This weekend was also the weekend of the EMM crop. I spent some time there working on my design team commitments...I swear I will show you as soon as I can. I was a little nervous doing these LO's but it was good to have Kathy and Fran on hand to reassure me. LOL.

Yesterday I got busy on my recipe cards for a swap I am involved in at EMM. These have been a lot of fun. I've signed up for two groups so that means two sets of five recipe card for the next twelve months. I can't wait to see what I get back. These are the two I've done for this moths theme Dips and Starters.

I've also started on a mini album for a friend of my mum's. I purchased a Aussie Scrap Source class kit by Melissa Goodsell. This is my first attempt at making a board book from scratch..and I don't think it will be my last. I am happy with how this looks...I just need to scrap the insides now. I love these bright and girly and they are working beautifully for this pair of red haired cuties.

Now for the last bit of scrapping news. This weeks prompt for Emilys deck of me was "I AM..." My I Am affirmataion is...I am learning to let go.

Sorry for such a long post...but I really wanted to share. I really want to go scrap shopping too, but that has to wait a day or so.
