Cropping fun and a photo too

I've had some fun chatting and scrapping this weekend over in Therapy for the cyber crop and in Pages In Time for their NSBD CROP.
Here is what I can share for now.
Yeap the girls are cyber cropping and retreating in the same weekend. I so wish I was able to be over there right now. Oh well here's hopping for next year and a little bridietold methat Mandy and Michelle are making sure I have ample of room to join them in my dreams. lol
This month I got to set the card challenge and I got the girls to try their hands at making flowers. Something I am loving at the moment as you can tell from some of my projects.

Cosmo Cricket papers, Hero Arts stamps and Stampin up punches.
Now the challenges aren't due till midnight tomorrow so if you are lucky enough not to be working pop on over and check them out.
I've also been working on a few other projects for Therapy but can't share just yet.
For the first time ever I played along with some challenges for NSBD. It is so big over in America with crops online and face to face ones happening all over.
I was lucky enough to get four challenges done. Maninly because you were able to do a layout or a card. I went with the card option for three of them knowing that I didn't have much time to scrap today after not finishing my STM layout till early this morning.
Handmade flower challenge.
Kraft and Bazzil cardstock, Prima and Sceneic Route papers, American Craft letters.
For the flower I punched out a scalloped circile and circle then layered them with a length of lace and a button.
I used a few extra pics I printed and didn't use from when I did my backyard wrestle layout a few months back. Both Asher and I hate Craig giving us Raspberries and that is what he is doing here when we set up the remote contol to take some family pics. lol I don't think I ended up with one nice one in the end.
Card challenge.
Kraft and Bazzil card stock,Purple Onion stamps,Carolee's Craetions letters, Prima packaging.
For this challenge we had to do some paper piecing, stamping and to use something recylced, either all three on one card or one on three. I went for the all three on one option using one of my new Purple Onion stamps. It is a scalloped one and I chopped it in half then re arranged them curved edge in to form the flower. Reminds me of the Pink Paislee ones.
Multi paper challenge.Kraft cardstock,Basic Grey papers and number, Making Memories letters.
For this one we had to use 4 patterned papers and shock horror. No flowers. Lucky for me I needed a boys b'day card.
Doodle challenge.My Minds Eye papers, Kaiser and Bazzil flowers and Stampin up punch
lol for this one I sort of had a head start. The base of the card had already been done and it just needed the flower and punchie to finish it of. Another couple of blank cards to have on hand just in case.

52 Weeks

Here is my photo from last week. When I got the email from Lou asking if Asher wanted to be the JGDT over at ASJ I knew what I would be taking a photo of lol.She was so wrapped when shewoke up on Saturday morning and I showed the site too her.

Well I think that is about all for now. I do have a few Purple projects to share but I think I have shared enough for now don't you. lol

Till next time, tomorrow when I'll post the next Stm challenge and my Purple projects thanks for popping, any comments and happy stamping/cardmaking.
