I've been scrapping


I haven't played along in a cyber crop for a while and when a friend told me of two happening this weekend I thought why not. I only got to do one challenge for each site but I love what I have done. Pity one of them isn't mine to keep.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is my page for Tracey's challenge. You needed to use on your page some set items from two lists. I chose to use
R - Rubons -The bird and leaf sprays which I have water coloured
A - Alphas
I - Ink
N - Numbers-on the bingo card
B - Bling-flower center
O - Only 2 word title
W - Water Colour Paints- pencils on the flower, leaf sprays and bird.
They so look much better using water colour paper. Thanks for the tip Philippa and Rach.
I was a little sneeky with this and seeing as I was using a Hero Arts stamp decided to put it in for this weeks challenge too.This is the page I don't get to keep. It is another one for a friends sisters memory album.

Mystical scrapbooks

This is my page for Sam's complimentry colour challenge.My little Missy at swimming lessons last term. For most of it she liked to pretend she was a dolphin and as some of the others in the class played along as well her teacher always had a giggle over it and towards the end of the lesson she would throw out fish for the dolphins to catch.

I played around with making some more flowers. These ones are so easy. You can find the tutorial here. I ended up leaving out the last two petal layers, squashed them a little and added the button centers. If any of you out there have got any flower tutorials you like can you please share as I am enjoying making my own these days.

Just scrapbooking

Before I went on retreat I got my LSS dt pack. I had planned on working with them while away but never got around to it. I have now though only can share one just now as I managed to work the other one into my AD this page for this week seeing as the colours of the papers matched the ad.

I got to play with some of the new Kaiser Craft papers. Now I really did struggle with this and by the end of it I had paper chopped up all over my kicthen bench but I got there in the end. So not my usual style but Gail, Asher's school assistant, whose photos I scrapped likes it and that it what counts I guess.

Will share the second page once it has gone up on the Ad this site.

Well that is all from me for now except that I have some sad news to share.

My long service is offically over. It is back of to work for me tomorrow. That was the quickest three months I've ever had.

As always thanks for popping in, any comments and happy scrapping.

Love the diversity of these LO's ... different but all equally beautiful!

Ah, I feel for you having to go back to work ...I feel so lucky I get to stay at home all the time!

I'll keep my eyes open for some flower tutorials, but I have to admit, most of the ones I have saved here came from you, so nothing new to share yet.

xxx Peggy
