UKS challenges/MCS kits/Color Room Sketches

I have completed some LO but was waiting for better weather to take photos - well I've given up with the persistent rain and done the best I could!
The LO below is using the Color Room palette #106 (Sun Room), My Creative Scrapbook kit - March Ltd Ed and UKS April week 2 Challenge (Fairytale title, photo with animals in it and a selections of patterned papers)
 A photo of my furbabies and my hubby - crashed out after a hard day!
 all papers and embellishments are MME and Prima.

 American Craft thickers and Websters pages alphabet.
 Color Room Palette # 107 (Family Room), MCS kit - March main and UKS challenge April week 3 - Scrap a birthday, old papers, colours associated with weather and four of something.
 A birthday photo of my gorgeous boy Sandi - he is one (along with his brother Dara!) I thought the red was good for hot summer weather, white for snow weather and black for the black skies we have been having with all the rain and thunder!  I have also cut the photo into four pieces!
 I have used embellishments from Prima and the papers are Echo Park.
 I have punched the little black flowers out using my new EK success flower punch.

 Finally UKS challenge April week 4 was to use the sketch below.
 Scrap a photo of a man in your life (I have scrapped a photo of Sam at Easter), use different alphabets (I have use new AC Thickers and Webster Pages alpha), misting/ink/paint (lots of pink glimmer mist on my resist paper!), and rik rac....and I had to dig to the bottom of my ribbon stash to find this - not used rik rak for ages!!
 I have used MCS January Ltd Ed kit - that was full of lots of yummy Prima goodies!

Thanks for looking - I love reading your comments.

Birthday Boy!!

Yes my gorgeous boy is 11!!!......lets see if I can persuade him to have some photos taken at the weekend!! Here he is this morning just before school with a packet of Uno cards (Thank you to Auntie Becca) and Bullseye! Tonight we are having birthday tea with Grandparents and Cupcakes!
 Sam not only shares his birthday with my Gorgeous nephew Caleb (who is 5) but also our Godson Billy (who is 13) - so not only did I have to make 1 boy card - but 3!!! I really struggle with boy cards - so cheated a bit this year! 
 Caleb is a Skylanders fab - so I printed an image off the internet and I have used BG Eerie collection of papers and a little bit of TH metal work.

 Billy's card I have used an old Magnolia stamp and BG Oliver paper collection

 A bit of distressing and some TH metal cogs.

 Sam's card was using some scraps of Crate Papers from an old MCS kit (October kit) and another image from Google!
 American craft thickers.

 I also thought I better post a photo of my furbabies - this photo was taken on Sunday night - we have now had them for a year!! I cannot believe where the time has gone!  When they come in for the evening after having their supper they both disappear upstairs to Jack's room and sleep on his bed!
Hard life isn't it?? As I am typing this they are asleep on my bed!
I had better get making cupcakes for tea tonight!
Thanks for looking

CCW April Mini Kit

Hello!  Today sees another fantastic mini kit over at CCW. This kit features the new Prima Almanac collections and I have to say it has been one of my fav kits so far!  I am not the best of card makers so I have altered a MDF 'S' below using a Saturated Canary image.

I have coloured her in using Prisma pencils
I also did 2 6x12 LO's - one of when my new niece Lucy was born last July - the first girl in the 'Wilkins' family.

and a LO's of Lucy as she was in February!
All I added was a metal TH flower and some stamped images - the rest was from the kit and I have papers left over to do more (maybe a card!!)

Thanks for look and quick - get over to the shop before these kits go as they are selling fast!!

Ally Pally April 2012

I almost didn't go to Ally Pally this year as friends dropped out for all different reasons - between Sue and I, there should have been 7 of us going up....and then there were 2!!! This is a photo of Sue and I outside the Palm Court entrance of Ally Pally where the BSSBS is held.
 I also caught up with my friend Jane - who managed to persuade me I needed a Smash book (well actually I didn't need much persuasion - I was only going to buy a medium size - but I went large!!)
 Here is my nice haul of goodies!
 I was good as I was determined not to buy any stamps - and I didn't!!  However I did buy lots of paper, bling, twine and other 'stuff'.......
 ........also a couple of mags, buttons and of course a butterfly had to get in there!!
Thank you to Sue for driving, I had a lovely day out!
