Ch{all}enge Masters Chopped Week 2

Poor Terri couldnt *chop* anyone from week one of the Ch{all}enge Masters competition so everyone made it through to week 2 -phewww.

Week 2 criteria is to use yellow, scallops and dimensional flowers. the mother of boys and the aunty of nephews, yellow is not a colour I use a lot esp now that the boys are older and have left primary school, so I hunted hi and lo through my pp scraps and found some I could use.

This is the outcome:

I normally scan my lo's but I really wanted the dimensional flowers to stand out so I took a pic. IRL the lo isnt quite that gold, but I do like it. I embossed the scallop strip and the birdie was inked, coated with Glossy Crackle, and then painted with Mellow Yellow Glimmer Glaze. The doily was inked with Banana Pudding Chalkboard Glimmermist, as were some of the flowers.

What ya think?

Some scrapping...

Wow, it has been so long since I played with paper and double sided tape that I thought I had lost the knack :(

But no, I have managed to finish some challenges from around the traps:

Ch{all}enge Masters March challenges:

Week 2: Colour
The challenge was to use tan, cream - any shades of either of these, and dark blue. I think I got that all covered.

This is an A4 layout for our Home Renovations album. Finally the reno's are finished, sadly the album isnt - but with my new found mojo maybe it will be :)

Week 3: Stash

This challenge was to use 2 or more different types of alphas on a layout. I have used BG chipboard, MM clears and Carolees Tiny alphas. It is the same pic as the first lo, with the same topic but for a different album.

Countrypapercraft Blog challenges:

This layout was done for Mrs Frizz's recipe challenge to use cardstock, pp's and stickers from the same manufacturer, alphas, distressing and sewing.

I have used BG pp's, stickers and alphas.

The pic is my great nephew who was born on October 18.

Thanks for looking

Catch ya

And what about ....

... Country Papercraft's blog challenges? Have you tried those yet?

I have - tonight I have created a double page layout for the Tuesday Challenge to scrap a page on a hobby, sport or obsession. Anyone who knows me, knows what my page will be :) Yep, one of my boys sporting pursuits.

Here it is:

So.. what do you think? I have only used cardstock, Thickers foam alphas inked in Pinecone , a couple of Twiddlybitz cogs, and some Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpha stickers. Easy peasy.

Your turn :)

I've done it....

Thanks for looking

Wow, has it really been this long?

Life has a way of changing a lot of things, and my life has been way too busy for a lot of different reasons *sad face*

Scrapbooking has taken a very far backseat these past months, but as things have settled down at last, I am about to get creative again :)

I have signed up for the Chopped competition at Ch{all}enge Masters, and have almost finished the first challenge, which is to use the colour Lime Green, circles and paint. A nice and easy challenge to start the competition. Thanks Terri :)

Black with 2 is being relaunched in April and Eve is currently on the look out for a Design Team - applications close Saturday 19 March - you better hurry and get those applications in.

Of course, if you are looking for some inspiration, go and check out Color Combos Galore, and even attempt the colour challenges there - I will be doing #183 very soon.

Ok, thats about it for now - I will be back soonish with my Ch{all}enge Masters layout.

Missed everyone heaps,
