Some more to share

I've had a nice day at home today and as it was raining managed to get some scrapping done in between sorting out washing, entertaining dd cooking dinner and a little housework lol

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The US forum I pop into had a xmas in July crop on this week end and I have managed to play along with three of the four challenges set by Ann. Awesome challenges. I had a heap of fun.

Chal 1 was a sparkly shiny challenge and here is what I came up with. Another of a few b'day layouts from Missy's b'day last year.We needed to add in lots of glitter and sparkle so I used up a heap of my glittle thickers to make a background for my photos and embellies. I added some pearls to my handmade vine stalk and butterfly and some shimmery ribbon finished it of.

Chal two was a colours of xmas challenge and we could do a layout or a card so I thought I'd make a start on my xmas cards.

I used the current sketch over at Card patterns for this card.
Chal three was a xmas card challenge so I made another one using the word Joy from the Merriness christmas stamp set.Over on the forum I started a monthly ABC Twist challenge. I get Asher to pull out three letters form her upwords game and you need to use scrappy products/techniques on your layout/card as well as my twist. This month Missy pulled out H,P and U and my twist was to use stamping. Here is the page I did.

I went with manu products for my letters H=Hambly,P=Purple Onion U=Urban Lily. This is another page in my firends sisters memory album. I used the buttefly from the Brocante set.

Michele has brought out the butterfly with some smaller ones as well in a new stamp set. Pop in here to see the new stamps as well as details of a sale and pop into the blog to check out the last of the new stamp give aways.
