This week's challenge was set by Sixofone. She challenged us to use all one colour for 10 points, make your own embellishments for 10 points and drag out old stash for the final 10 points. I have used all orange papers and embellishments, using old papers from My Minds Eye paperstack that I have had for ages and I made the paper rosette flower using a Craft Robo template. I have also made my own alphas by inking over some Doodlebug alphas and then taking them off the paper to leave the outline.

UKS October Week 1I have only just realised that I haven't posted up a photo of last week's UKS weekly challenge. I did whilst at my 365 Retreat in Bognor - so the girls can vouch that I did do it before the deadline. I did it as a double page layout. The challenge was set by the Bijoux Belles and we had to use a grid for 10 points, first or number one for 10 points and use circles or stamping for the final 10 points.
I used paper that had a grid on it and circles on it and used photos of Zoe's first day of school.
Another layout from the retreat
Here is another layout I did whilst on the retreat:
Lean Mean Mini Book
I also made the Lean Mean Mini book and finished it off when I got home. It is made using just one piece of 12x12 cardstock and one piece of double-sided paper.

This week's challenge was set by Alibri. She challenged us to use a photo of either nature or landscape - as long as it doesn't include people or animals for 10 points, to use stamping for 10 points and finally to "alter" the lettering or the alphas for the final 10 points.

I wasn't very keen on the original introduction page and so have re-done it and then done a summary page too.
I now just need to decide how I am going to print the album and present it. I am thinking of having it made into a photo book.
