Just a quick post tonight with a few layouts to share.....
I have been participating in the Happy Scrappy New Year competition over at Red Earth Scrapping - there were 7 challenges run over 15 days....and it has been fun!
Challenge 1 was to scrap a christmas layout using a christmas photo, a die cut or shaped paper & journalling (more than just the basics) - I have already shared the layout I did for this challenge a few posts ago - but I will share again....
Challenge 2 was a recipe challenge & we had to gather the following ingredients -
* cardstock base (12x12 or 8.5x11)
* 3 x patterned paper circles - any size but plan this carefully ...
* 1 x patterned paper strip - max size 3x11
* ribbon/trim/lace etc - any type/quantity
* flowers - no more than 5 - any size/style
Here are my ingredients....
Challenge 3 was to make 3 lollipop flowers & then put them aside for use later in the comp
Challenge 4 was to make a card.....using only scraps!
Challenge 5 was to create a layout using only the ingredients we had collected earlier....but we were also allowed to use 1 extra thing.....stickers
Challenge 6 was to create a layout or series of cards using our 3 previously made lollipops....
And challenge 7 was to create any papercrafting project inspired by the following quote
A new year is unfolding - like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within.
I decided to do a mini album for photos that I take in 2011 - probably a favourite or 2 for each month as it is a 12 page mini. I have had this Kaiser album & the Kaiser papers for YEARS, just sitting there.....so this challenge was the perfect chance to put it to good use....
The whole competition has been great fun with lots of fantastic challenges.....well done Helen!
Thanks for dropping by & thanks again to everyone for all your lovely comments :)))
Cheers & happy scrapping!
