I Won a Challenge!!!!!

I won challenge #4 over at Passion for Promarkers, (my first win) I am absolutely chuffed to bits! Thanks to everybody over at http://promarkerchallenge.blogspot.com/ why not try out a challenge? I really have enjoyed it every week since it began. I won with this card which I am especially proud of because the stamp is my own design and totally unique.

I didn't have any crafting time last night, as my daughter decided it was a good idea to go into her Dads garage/workshop with no shoes on, and cut her big toe open resulting in a trip to A&E! Not only has she cut her toe she has done it when she is going away with school for the weekend. If I have told her once I have told her 10 million times not to go out with nothing on her feet!!! What I am I going to do with her?!?!

Ball Scrapbook Page

This is a really cheeky pic of my son when he was just 2 years old, the journalling is all about his first word which was BALL can you believe it! not Mum or even Dad but ball! lol. I was going for a really layered look and was pleased with the end result. Papers are BG, luggage tags and every thing else I've had in my stash for ages! lol.

Threading Water Punch Tutorial.

I use my punch all the time and had wondered if you could do this but had no idea how it would work! I read about Pretty in the latest Scrapbook Inspirations so hopped over to take a peek, its a fab blog.These are my Sister and my sister in laws B/day cards love those bears!! ( i didn't use my punch on these just thought you might like them) Hugs Pxx

Happy Scrapbook Page

This is not my usual style, but I do love the way it looks. This clean kind of page does not come naturally to me I am really messy random scrapper! Lol! Cardstock is bazzil bling, Lettering from QVC's crafters delight kit and the other paper and elements from a papermania kit, the name of it just escapes me! Anyway I hope you like it. Hope you are keeping dry where you are, Happy Thursday. Pxx

Stamptacular One for the Boys Challenge

Paper = Colour me Silly BG
Cardstock = Papermania
Letter stickers = Papermania
Stamped Image = Pjay Designs
Hope you like him! Pxx

Together Scrapbook Page

For this page I used the Crafters Delight Kit from QVC, and cardstock from Papermania Oriental Kit. I took the photo the first summer when we moved. That kit from QVC is like the magic porridge pot (no matter how much you use the box still seems as full as ever), it fab value and good quality.

My friend has just asked me to do a family portrait which I am looking forward to, I will do a full shoot with them then they can choose their fav' shot. There are 13 of them so I will have to come up with a creative idea! Hopefully the weather will pick up so we can do it outside. I haven't done a shoot for a while so I will have to get some practise in. These shots are from a fun shoot I did with my kids.
