Feb Cyber @ SBT50

Thought I'd pop on this morning and share the layouts that I created for last months "Colour My World" Cyber at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.

First up was the Opening Night Mini Challenge from Sarah who was a lucky duck to be Queen the other month.
LO or card to be smaller than 12x12
plus one of the colours you use on your layout must also be a word in your title.

I like to do a card for this challenge usually. They are quick and easy and it helps to build up my card stash. But this months criteria I was fining hard to think of a card for it. So I thought I'd do a 11x8.5 LO for my Bliss album.

Here it is:

Decided to use this pic of Ethan playing with his playdough. When we made the playdough Ethan asked if he could have 'green please' so that's what we made.
I used Kraft as a base. Love to paint the edge of cardstock with some paint, makes for a different border.
I took some colours (red and orange) from the photo and splattered plaint around. The green pp is from Kaisers Class of '87 range, love that pp. Stamped some blue paint as a border for the photo. I
 painted some Jillibean Soup corrugated cardboard alphas with some green paint. Also used Alphas from Echo Parks Little Boy range.
Embelly is from Purple Pumpkin.

The first main challenge was also from Sarah. I had wonderful plans to scrap this photo of Randall from when he was about 3 or 4 dressed in a faux leather bikie jacket and a pink tulle tutu. Do you think I could find the photo. Mum hunted high and low too (it was her pic) but couldn't find it. In the end I ran out of time.

Second challenge was Sues Triadic Challenge.  Love the idea of this challenge. Now Cybers at SBT50 can be very interesting as you gain points by taking part in challenges and forum threads, commenting on entries and also by using your av (to match that months cyber theme) on one of you cyber layouts. All of these points are collated and if you have the highest points you are crowned Queen of the Crop and will be invited to set challenges (like Sarah) in a couple of months time. So I thought I'd use my av for this challenge as the colours are bright and match the triadic wheel perfectly.
Other criteria were:
Stamping on the layout
a paperclip

Here's my take:
Love this pic of my two babies. The love to flip their sofas out, set up bed and have their morning milos. This day they were enthralled in Roary the Racing Car.
I used a sheet of Echo Park pp, which I then painted. Stamped a border around the photo with red paint, that I also painted the edges with (see told you I liked it).
Inked a chippie star tab and coated the star with DM (oops it's not dry in the pic), added the date to it too.
I embellished with some yellow paper lace, blue Lime Tree Creations trim and doily and yellow crocheted star, red pom pom trim and a Purple Pumpkin blue spotty button.
I have used AC thickers and Kaiser mini alphas.
I stamped my journalling spot onto the painted pp, stamp is from Kaiser.
I punched a little of the border too with an EK Success square notebook punch.

Thirds challenge was a Colour Pallet Challenge form Vicki.
Criteria were to use these colours:

Aren't they gorgeous bright colours!
We also had to use a mixed alpha title and a bracket somewhere.

Here's my take:

I thought this pic of Eli on Australia day was just perfect for this colour scheme.
I painted the Kraft base with paints of the pallet. Then added some pp's to match (Kaisers Class of '87 and Echo Park).
Alphas both Echo Park (yep I know there is a typo) I added punch brackets either side of the title.
The sun, cloud, boat and kite layered stickers are form K& Co.
Embelly cluster (yoyo and felt lollipops) and the aeroplane button are from Purple Pumpkin.
Caterpillar pin is form the very talented Treens.
Misc ribbon and journalling spot are punched form EK Success punches.

Last night I received some fab news that this layout won! I can't wait to get my pack from Mad About Scrappin.

Last but not least is Ants Lyric Challenge. We were to use a line from the song 'Colour My worl' by Petula Clark. You can see the lyrics on the link above.
I chose the words 'Paint it with your Love' to go with a pic of Ethan with his painted 'robot' (aka nappy box).
Other criteria were:
Some doodling
At least 2 different alphas in your title
Some flowers.

Here it is:
Love how bright this layout is. I only wish that I had mounted the photo on some black c/s to make it pop more.
I used Kaisers Class of '87 mostly for this, with some Echo Park yellow pp.
I have used Echo Park alphas (two different types) plus some Kaiser rec mini alphas.
Lots of black doodling around everything.
Quite a few flowers - Purple Pumpkin, Lime Tree Creations and some handmade ones.
I have also used a 'boy' button form Ladybug Bits and Bobs.
I used a Page Maps sketch for this layout.
