It is nearly over!!

The Scrapbooking Top 50 March '4 Seasons in 6 Days' cyber crop at is almost over!!  Entries are due by midnight tonight!! :-)   I have managed to squeeze in enough time to complete all the challenges, so here they are for your viewing!! :-)

Challenge 1: Sponsor's Challenge, was to create 2 handmade 'seasonal' embellishments to be used on later challenges during the crop.  I chose to make a 3D sun and butterfly!

Here is a close up of the layering:

Challenge 2: Is it HOT in here? was a summer based challenge, using a colour pallette of blues, yellows and whites.  It also had to include a white cs background, a sun embellishment and a handcut item (my handmade sun)!!

Challenge 3: Falling Leaves required us to use a colour pallette of autumn toned oranges and browns, and also to include a one word title, leaves and chipboard.  I was having so much fun making my own embellies for this crop, that i decided to make the cute little cat in the bottom right corner.  I spent ages googling images that would suit, and couldn't find anything, then my m.i.l. gave me a bag of new closes for my DD, and there was this goreous top with a little dog and cat on the front, so i just had to trace him off!! :-)  Things we will do for perfection!! lol!! :-)  The cat is actually layered but you can't see that very clearly in this pic!

Challenge 4: Got a Chill? was a winter based challenge, set by me!! :-)  This is my example page for the challenge.  The layout had to use a winter colour pallette of blues, purples and white.  It had to have a definate winter theme, include a stamped title, include spots and stripes, and a snowflake!! :-)

Here is a close up of the gorgeous flowers i got to play with from My2Angels!  The felt heart at the top of the photo in the above picture was also from My2Angels.  It was white, but i sprayed it with blue glimmermist! Thanks Tracy!! :-)

Challenge 5: Chantal's EXTREME Spring Challenge had to use a colour pallette of red, pink, purple and green.  It also needed to have a definate spring theme, a flower embellishment, 3 or more photos, embroidery thread (was not allowed to be stitched so made a hose out of it instead!), at least 3 eyelets, 3 buttons, use stamps (butterfly), bling and include a bug ont he layout!! Phew, that was a lot to include on one page!! :-)

Challenge 6: Seasons with reasons! was a criteria challenge.  We were given 12 pictures to choose from at the start of the crop, and we needed to pick 4 pictures which would relate to different criterias that needed to be used.  The gorgeous Anthea picked the pictures for me, as i already knew what the criterias were.  My criterias ended up being to use an outdoor pic, distressing, 3 different sized flowers and hand-written journalling!!  I'm really happy with how this one turned out, although this photo really doesn't do it justice as you can't see that all the pp is distressed, and the colours are all so much bright IRL then they are in this pic!!  The pp used is Kaisercraft Allsorts and can be purchased at My2Angels.
