More scrapping goodies

This is a very picture heavy post! This is my pre-crop challenge and mystery kit which I was lucky enough to win prizes for both! First is my pre-crop challenge which was what home means to us. I had such fun doing this layout and I am going to put it in a 12x12 frame and put it up in my scraproom/dining room.

This was my mystery kit which was from Sarah's crafts. I just loved this kit and was so excited when I saw it as I think usually the papers tend to be very generic so that most people can work with them but these were so fun and perfect for me. I am so glad Sarah's cards was my teams supplier as I definitely think our kit was the best and I love her monthly kits too. So anyway I loved it so much I made loads and still have a bit over too!

This is for Christopher's door and he just loves it, it goes with his new bed!

Kieran winning his bounce-athon at school. He had the highest number of bounces in a minute so he won a prize which was a 'Little Robot' and he was very pleased with himself!

I made the mini book by just cutting it out of the pizza box and then covering in black card. I stitched the inner pages in like a book.

Will post some pics of the kids at Gulliver's for Halloween soon. Only 4 more sleeps til New moon!

Very busy

Oooops surprise, surprise it has been a while again! Well things have been busy recently but had a wonderful weekend cybercropping! Of course I am so slow that even though I spent most of the weekend just scrapping I did only complete 4 things! This one was a challenge to use sewing on a layout.

This one was a gorgeous class by Tracie Oakes which I just adore, I just have to still think of a title I want and then put the title block in. It is a dreadful photo because we have had such miserable weather and this was at about 4:45pm.

This was a fab class by Rachel Millington which I really enjoyed doing except for the fact that my sewing machine decided to break in the middle of it and Paul could not fix it so I had to leave off all sorts of stitching and I love sewing on my layouts, I think I will have to go and get a new machine quickly!

And this yummy class was by Di Oliver and I had a ball doing this one. It was a very time consuming class because you make the box frame from scratch and then have to paint it etc but it was well worth the effort. I was literally covered in glue and paint but I have the lovely finished item to hang up in my home this Christmas so I am very pleased!

I still have my precrop challenge and mystery kit which I will upload tomorrow but this is one I finished a little while ago and is my month in review layout for erm March 2008! I am only a little bit behind ;)

Oh Jessica Sprague has a free class starting here today I think. I do love her work.

Only 5 more sleeps till I get to go and see New Moon with Leanne! (it is more exciting than Christmas!)
