Some LO's to share

Once again this month I have been busy taking part in various challenges.
May 10th-23rd is the Cyber Crop over at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia. This months theme is Lights, Camera, Action. All four challenges used movie posters for inspiration and all had their own criteria. So far I have completed three of the four challenges.

Challenge #1 was bought to us by our guest DT Judith. Her challenge was based on the movie poster of Avatar. Your LO had to be at least 50% blue, must use headshot/s only and have dots/spots.
This is my take.


Forgot about the inspiration in this one but sure I could draw something if I had watched the movie lol.
I used Kaisers new Jungle Bug as the base atop a piece of blue bazzil. Jungle Bugs journalling spot. Kaiser rubons and bling. American Crafts Thickers.

Challenge #3 is based on the Up! movie poster. Criteria were to use lots of white space, bright colours and a one word title.


My inspiration was kids fun.
I used the Kaiser Jungle Bugs paper and journalling spot. DCWV rubon lettering. Such a cute range.

Challenge #4 was based on the Twilight movie poster. We had to use black, white and one other colour, a die cut base and strip journalling.




My inspiration was the love story.
I used a lace base atop a piece of black bling bazzil and then cut around it to make it a die cute. White bling bazzil, Making memories letter stickers and Kaiser bling.

i'm still pondering over Challenge #2.

Top 50 also have monthly challenges. One of the challenges is a Dare Challenge where forum members get to choose 4 criteria (within reason)for the DT team to scrap. However there is a twist. If you nominate a criteria (and it's accepted) you must also complete the Dare!
So I out up my hand didn't I. Criteria were tough this time round.
Only one sheet of cardstock, no pp
At least 2 different coloured buttons
Doodled or stamped border (my suggestion)
Embelly cluster including a die cute or journalling spot.
I was quite excited as I had a really good idea, but then it was pointed out that we couldn't use cardstock die cuts, so that threw a spanner in my works. I'm still to complete the qualifying LO but this is what I originally had in mind. I have added a few extra things (like using swiss dot base instead of plain cardstock) but seeing as it wasn't qualifying I didn't think that mattered.




I used a white swiss dot base. Kaiser chippie letter coated in VeraColor ink. October Afternoon Ducks in a Row alpha stickers, journalling spot and embelly sticker. I hand make the crocheted flower and the Yoyo flowers and hand stitched the border around the photo.

I was blog hopping the other day and came across a blog challenge on My Minds Eye's blog. I just loved the sketch and the opportunity to win three collections of my choice was just too much to resist. The LO had to use at least 80% MME products which I have done.


I used MME Little Blue Blue papers and some Kaiser flowers, bling and chippie alphas. Carole Creations letter stickers. Tim Holtz Walnut Distress ink.

I quite like this LO but wish I had had the time to print the pics in b&w.

Will have more LO's to share soon.

Take Care

A very busy April

Wow! I was very productive this April. I have set myself a goal of a LO a week and this month I have done 10 LO's!!!! Many of which I have already blogged but here are the rest.

First up are my entry in the ScrapTherapy April Monthly Journalling Challenge.

I really like this LO, but I am not keen on the shape of my journalling, think it should have be 90 degress the other way.
I have used KasierCrafts Devonshire range.


The two cards I made for the Card Challenge at the CyberCrop. I have used KasierCrafts Peachy Keen 6x6 Pad, flowers and bling.


Next in my entry for a new challege forum called What About Me. Yes it's all about scrapping yourself. Lots of Challenges happening, both weekly and monthly. Great group of girls so pop on over and have a go.

This Challenge was a Song Challenge. I chose (choice of four songs) Powderfingers My Happiness. Again I have used KaiserCrafts Devonshire range.


Anna's Craft Cupboard have a monthly sketch challenge which always gets the mojo going.
This is my entry for April.

I have used DCWV cardstock and Citrus Stack. The alphas are American Crafts Remarks. The matched the papers perfectly. There was even a third colour, the same lime green I have used, but they would have been lost on the c/s so didn't use them.


I have been really enjoying the Challenges over at Challenge Heaven in April and May Challenges are even better.
This is my Quote Challenge entry.

I have used Imaginisce Baby Power pp's, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpha stickers and I just love the little elephant buttons I have handstitched on to the page. Picked them up a a $2 store somewhere, sooo cute.


And last but by all means not the least, a LO I have done just because.

I love this pic of Eli when he was about 8 weeks old. He'd fallen alseep in Brians arms. I'm sure I'm not alone in looking at our sleeping babies and wondering what lies in store for them. So I scrapped it. I tried placing a journalling spot on the page but everything I tried just didn't look right. So I have written on the back the dates etc.
I have used My Minds Eye pp, American Crafts Thickers and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letter stickers.
