Uh oh, back to old habits!! :)

I don't know where April went.  It seems i shut my eyes and it passed me by!! :-(  We were so busy doing not a lot, that it just doesn't make sense, but i guess that is what happens when you have kids!!  Dad has always told me that kids are excellent time wasters, and i am beginning to believe him!!  Thanks Dad!! :-)

So i last blogged at the start of the Top 50 April cc, and i am pleased to announce that i did manage to get all the challenges completed!! :-)  So here they are:

Challenge 1: Reflecting in the Post - create a card using reflection!!  So.. i went with the mirror image!! lol!!  Nice and easy!! :)  I made this for my friend who had just had a baby girl!

Challenge 2: Mirror, Mirror... was set by guest DT Anthea.  We had to use bling, distressing, buttons and a photo of someone in a mirror.  Jorja has just started dressing herself, so this layout is about that!  Thanks for the challenge Ant!! :)

Challenge 3: It was important to me.. this was the ch i set for the crop.  The challenge was to create a layout about an important event in your life and to include at least 100 words of journalling.  This was my example.  All materials used on this layout are from Tracy at My2Angels! Thanks Tracy!! :-)

The journalling was hidden under the photos.  The whole photo flap lifts to the right to reveal.....

Challenge 4: When your shining.. was set by Sue.  The challenge was to create a layout using alfoil (yes, from the kitchen!), glitter, bling, and the word "shine"!  Here is mine, i have used the alfoil in the lolipop flowers!! :-)

Challenge 5: Times gone by... was set by Kathie.  For this one, we need a vintage style layout, ribbon and an embellie cluster!  I wasn't sure where i was going with this one, but i love how it turned out!! :-)

Challenge 6: What about You?  For this one we had to use a photo of ourselves, the title At (age), and 5 random facts about ourselves!! :-)

  2. Haha, I completely understand the month's happening here too! Brilliant layouts, you certainly achieved a lot over the CC.
