Linda Baldock also taught the third class.
This class was about altering chipboard!!!
The chipboard we used was from 'Words Or Whatever - WOW'

March LO for Scrapsidaisy's Challenge

Well I went & finished my own challenge on Friday night, at the Friday Night crop at Scrapsidaisy!!
I had a great night with the girls, as I always do.
Lots of laughs, Pizza & of course "CHOCOLATE"

Remember the challenge is "RED & WHITE"

And here is my take on my own challenge lol

I just love this photo of Brodie!!
The girls at work took this pic last year to put in Brodie's end of the year Portfolio folder for Daycare & as soon as I saw it, I had to have them email it to me.

Anyhoo...... I used wht CS & misted it, but used a apple bag as a mask & you can see I also included a bit of the apple bag as well. I have a little bit of Dusty on there. Some really old rubons I've had for yrs, flowers, twine, the LOVE word is old also, some flowers & Ruby Rock-It alpha's.
The banners are stickers from Jenni Bowlin Studio as well as the lil alpha's. Also put some little charms on there too.

Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday xxx

Once Upon a Springtime.

Hi everyone!!!
Just want to show you a little project I did about a month or so ago & did post it on my blog.
I had the pleasure of playing with Graphic 45, Once Upon a Springtime range.
I just love it!!!
I created this Twiddleybitz Shadow Box.

I also used Glimmermist, Kindyglitz, Stickles, Prima Butterfly, Prima pearls & Greentara.
Also added one of my beaded hatpin.
And of course Graphic 45, Once Upon a Springtime

Oh & I received my yummy Dusty prize I won from Mistra Hoolahan today. I was very excited when I picked up my package.
Thanks Mistra I love it all!!!

Scrapsidaisy's Feb Challenge

The Feb challenge is up over at Scrapsidaisy.
The challenge was set by the ever so lovely Jules again & this is the criteria.....

For the February challenge I would like you to create your own background/patterned paper.
Sounds hard but not really.
You could stamp images, mist or ink masks or paint the background onto cardstock or a simple patterned paper. I am sure that there are many other techniques as well.
There will be a prize awarded for one lucky entrant - drawn randomly.
Pages must be uploaded by Feb 28 & the winner will be announced shortly after that.

I must say I had fun creating this background.

To create this look I used Shaving cream. I sprayed some on my CS then got my fingers in it & created swirls over the page. I then sprayed some Gimmermist over the shaving cream & splatted some Glimmerglam on there as well. Waited till it dried & then painted more Glimmerglam on the edges to create a boarder.
My LO smells soooo nice from the shaving cream LOL

Why don't you give it ago & create your own background or PP
