The Nut

I took advantage of a challenge on the forum of Ideal Papercrafts to get another page done for my Tasmanian Holiday album.

I enjoyed making the distressed circle "flowers" as I had never made these before.

Layout which won me a prize.

This is a layout for a mid-month challenge at Ideal Papercrafts which I won a prize for.

The challenge was a Recipe one. We were given a list of things to include on our page as follows:
Two patterned papers, one plain cardstock, a piece of lace cardstock, 8 brads, two ribbons ( I placed a yellow variegated one over a brown one), 3 rubons ( the flowers ), an alpha ( hobart ); three pieces of chipboard ( the arrows).

I was happy to get another page put together for a holiday we had in Tasmania back in 2007.

Prize won at Ideal PaperCrafts

It is so exciting that this week I won a voucher at Ideal Papercrafts for my "Two" layout which I have shared below.

Then today I got a message to say I won last month's mid-month layout prize so I will share that layout after I post this. For that I receive a prize ( scrapbooking supplies)

Cyber Crop at Ideal PaperCrafts (formerly The Scrapbook Estabhlishment)

For this challenge we had to use an envelope, fourishes and some bling.

I had not scrapped this photo of my granddaughter taken on her 2nd Birthday so I used this challenge as incentive to do so.

The journalling reads:
Imogen celebrated her 2nd Birthday over in Canada with her parents and some of her Dad's family.
Once again Grandma was not there to celebrate the day.
Imogen's Mumma and Daddy gave her a toy camera.

For this challenge we had to use Monochromatic colours with only one added accent ( I used the gold) and we had to have bling, rhinestones or pearls ( I chose pearls ) and a photo corner.

I hope to eventually make a matching page on which I will do lots of journalling about our celebration of my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary which took place in May 2002.

The group photo has their Bestman ( my uncle - Dad's brother) and Bridesmaid (my cousin who is only 10 years younger than my mother)

This is a card for the April Cyber Crop at Ideal Papercrafts.
We were given an illustration for inspiration which had four rectangles of bright coloured pictures and the dominant colours of each rectangle was in the same order that I have used on my card.
We had to add doodling to our card - I doodled the border around the edge.
Also we had to use string and a bookplate.

I used the challenge to make an acceptance card I needed to reply to an wedding invitation.
