UKScrappers week 1 challenge.

I haven't had much time to do any crafting in the last week or so and I have been having serious withdrawal symptoms!  I did manage to do the UKS weekly challenge yesterday though so I am feeling a bit more relaxed again ;) 

The challenge was to use a picture of someone relaxing (I think my picture counts lol), use 7 of something and  use the following sketch

This is my layout, I used Daisy Bucket Designs Rock Star range :)  Sorry it is not the best of pictures, it is always hard to get a good picture when you write around the edges!

And some close ups because I love close ups!

The chipboard stars are Scenic Route and I used Memories Mists to spritz them (after I had used some of them to spritz the background) and then inked the edges with a ColorBox chalk ink pad.  The glittery alphabet stickers are from Anita's that I picked up from The Range and they are just gorgeous, I am really loving them.  I have them in white too! :)

Of course I did lots of hand stitching, I do love stitching on layouts, probably half the reason why layouts take me so long!

I also managed a quick card for my Friend who has recently moved into a new home.  Just a quick simple one done with Nikki Sivils Victoria street range which is just perfect for a new home card and I didn't think it needed much of anything except the paper. :)

Hopefully next week won't be as crazy as the last 2 have been and I will get more crafting done!  Also just want to send out some ((((((((((massive hugs)))))))))) to Lisa and hope things are going well today.
