Christmas in July and Blog Hopping

The Christmas in July cyber crop started at Scrapbooking Top 50 on Friday with a Party!! We had a game of Bingo (which i won!! Yippee), a mystery card challenge, a Quiz and a scavenger hunt (which is still on going)!!

The mystery challenge was organised by me, and the criteria i gave was to use, red and white scraps, ribbon and stamps. Here is my example:

There will also be a blog hop starting tomorrow and with all our very generous sponsors, it is bound to be lots of fun. We need to follow the clues thru all the blogs until we end up with a paragragh that actually makes sense. From my blog we need to hop over to our resident angels blog for the next clue!! :) Happy hunting!!

Now, onto the challenges, we already have 5 of the 7 challenges posted, and i have made a start on them. Challenge 1 was a blind card scrap. I was a bit naughty, and didn't obey the instructions fully, but i am really happy with what i have done. Here it is:

I am currently working on challenge 4, which is a scraplift. I am really happy with how it is coming together, and will post a pic as soon as i am finished.

I have also completed a pre-crop christmas celebration challenge, where we had our own criterias. I will post that pic as soon as i take it too!! :)

I also have a couple of other little projects i have been doing too, but they also need pics taken, so once again i will post them after i take the pics!! :)

Have a good day and be sure to check out the Christmas in July cc!! xx

I have been busy ...

Scrapping for others!!

I help a friend make some invites for her 2 dd's birthdays which are coming up very soon. We used my cuttlebug for both and they both looked fantastic. My friend took one lot home to finish off, and i made these ones for her eldest DD. I made them tuesday and her party is today and birthday tomorrow, so a bit late notice, but it doesn't matter. We had no idea what to do with these ones, we just knew they had to be red as that is her favourite colour (DD's), so i started playing and this is what i ended up with.

I also had a friend have a little bub on Wednesday, so i pulled out a OTP album i had sitting around, and thru this together so i could go visit her!! I didn't have much time, and the album wasn't much bigger than 4x6, so i decorated the front, and then just covered the other pages in patterened paper and doodled a border around the edges. When i gave it to my friend, she was so happy and commented that she hoped i had made something for her!! So that made my day!! :)

June Cyber Crop at SBT50

The June Cyber Crop at Scrapbooking Top 50 was all about Crowns and Tiaras and was sponsored by Tracy at My 2 Angels.

Challenge 1 had to use the colours purple, lime or red, or any combination of the 3, as well as include at least 1 of 4 crown charms, kindly donated by Tracy.

Challenge 2 was to make a birthday card for our little prince or princess using the same colours as challenge 1 as well as using a crown charm.

Challenge 3 was all about grunge. I've never done grunge before, so i was happy with how this turned out!! :)
Challenge 4. Before the crop we were given a list of questions to answer about our activities in May, then we had use these answers in this challenge.

Challenge 5 was to make an Off the Page project for our prince or princess. I decorated a wooden Kaiser box.

We then had a 6th challenge, the monday night cook off, where we previously had to pick from a list of cooking ingredients, and then we were given what techniques the ingredients corresponded with. I had to have a 2 word title starting with my initials, use the colours orange and brown, have circle (min 2, max 6) and have pp with torn edges.
I think this layout is just too funy, as with the pic in challenge 1, and i actually won the prize for this one!! :)

How Slack Am I??? :)

Ok, i have been really slack!! Here are all my layouts from June!! Please be patient, this may take a while!! :)

This was a class that i took at Bon's Scraps, taught by Charm Koch. I really like how this one turned out.

The next one is the June colour challenge at Scrapbooking Divas. Just a quick simple one to get the mojo flowing.

These next ones were the June Monthly challenges at Scrapbooking Top 50.

Challenge 1: Take and Bake - had to use 2 pics, 5 flowers, 8 brads, colour green and have the word 'new' somewhere on the page.

Challenge 2: Sketch - my take on the sketch

Challenge 3: Ad Challenge - had to use some type of ad in the challenge and draw inspiration from it. I used the info from the Halls Gap Tourist Info Guide!! :)

Challenge 4: lyrics Challenge - had to use some of the words from 'Confessions of a teenage drama queen'.

Challenge 5: Mystery Lift - given instructions to scrap lift a layout without seeing the original

Challenge 6: Mix to the Max - Used our date of birth to gather the instructions. I had to have title running vertical, flowered patterned paper, use paint and ink, and the layout had to be of my favourite painting!! :)

This post is really long, so i will start again with my layouts for the Scrapbooking Top 50 June Cyber Crop!! :)
