Shimelle Cyber Crop - Saturday 6pm Challenge

For this challenge we were asked to use our handwriting on the layout.

Shimelle Cyber Crop - Saturday 2pm Challenge

Shimelle gave us four layouts and gave us the choice of which one to scraplift. I chose the last one.

Shimelle Cyber Crop - Saturday 8am Challenge

I was out running when this challenge was put live but I am hoping to catch up with next challenge shortly.
This challenge was to use a background of 4 squares of patterned paper. I have used Bo Bunny's A Gift of Love papers - I love these and they suit photos of my four year old perfectly.
This is Zoe after having about 4 inches cut off of her hair.

Shimelle Cyber Crop - Friday 8pm Challenge

We were challenged to use her layout as a sketch and possibly use wood grain. I couldn't do the wood grain part of the challenge, but here is my layout.

Shimelle Cyber Crop

Shimelle is having a cyber crop - see her blog for further information.
The first challenge was do something about Cupcakes.
I have done a layout saying that I can't have any cupcakes for the foreseeable future as I am on Weight Watchers. It says "I have lost 11.5 lbs on Weight Watchers in the last 7 weeks and so none of these for a while. Boo Hoo!!!"

UK Scrappers Weekly Challenge April Week 2

This week's challenge was set by the Ready Steady Scrap team.
We were asked to have lots of white space for 10 points, use any of the following colours - white, blue, red, yellow or black for 10 points, have circles on the layout for 5 points and have some reference to TIME for the final 5 points.
I took this photo last week at Kingston Maurward of Zoe standing amongst the spring flowers.

52 in 10 week 15 - Home Cont'd

This week's prompt was all about renovating/decorating. We haven't done much renovating but have done lots of decorating since moving into our new house. I have used before and after photos of some of the rooms in the house as we got them sorted out.

52 in 10 week 14 - Home Cont'd

For week 14, Karen continued on the Home theme and she asked us to do a layout about something in our home that makes us happy. Well mine has to be my craft room. It is everything I ever wanted and it is my place of solitude and creativity.

52 in 10 week 13 - Home

This week's prompt is all about our homes.
We moved back in November after spending 11 years in a 2 bed flat to a lovely 4 bed house where we have all the space we could ever want.
