UKS Weekly Challenge

This week it is my friend and teamie Lindsay's challenge!

I like to have different titles so please use a number in your title, 10 points

I love to talk (ask anyone) so therefore I use a lot of words, for 5 points please used stamped words somewhere on your LO.

My favourite colour is blue so used 2 different colour blues

I take a lot of photos and multi photo Lo is usually the only way to go so please use more than one photo. Two or Ten it doesn't matter as long as it's more than one, 10 points.
 Photos of my Sam playing on his ipad! I have used Pepples papers, die cut clouds and the stamp set is an alpha set from Paperchase

More Scrapping and cropping!

Morning - another successful cropping day - not bad considering I was post night shift!
I had another challenge to do using Sue's sketch from her blog - I had used this sketch last month but it was good to use it again - and I scrapbooked some girly pages - the one below is of my sister and my niece Hiolette all dressed up for Hiolettes's award ceremony at school.

 This is my niece Amelia

 A phoot of Jack on his 16th Birthday - and yes its a pretty page - but its my page to go in my album so butterflies and flowers it will have!! I took lots of photos on his birthday so I'm sure so more masculine pages will follow! (sorry Jack!)  I have used some old kits from My Creative Scrapbook - they all from February - I have almost finished these kits - they are such brilliant value for money - I can get so many LO's out of one kit - and I get two of them, the main kit and the limited edition one! 

Thanks for looking!

Scrapbooking and UKS Challenges

Good morning and thanks for taking the time to look at my blog - a couple of pages for a couple of UKS challenges - first one is the August MC - Using a large photo, 4 patterned papers, tags/journal cards and a pinch of green and buttons or beads to finish.
 I have used Prima Seashore paper collection and embellishments - this is an old photo of Jack at the IOW in 2012 - the tag and journal card is hidden behind the photo - and I have used American Craft thickers for the title.

 August week 3 WC - included the following elements  - 
1. Something old - use up some of your old stash or old digi kits
2. Something new - just the opposite...use some newer goodies
3. Something borrowed - I like trying to reuse and recycle things so use something either that you wouldn't normally use on a layout - clothing labels/tickets/packaging etc etc. For digi scrappers I know this won't be so easy so please just include something a bit unusual!
4. Something blue....anything!
And continuing vaguely on that wedding type theme....
5. Something gold...again anything - brads/gems/embellishments, etc
6. Something see through or sheer ... gems/embellishments/vellum/acetate etc.
 I have used old flowers, new stash, borrowed a stencil/ink, blue was flowers, bling, butterflies, ink. Gold was bling and sheer is the lace ribbon.  This is a photo of Jack with his best friend from primary school - Amber - love this photo of them, they looks so happy and grown up - here they are together at Prom.
 I have used My Creative Scrapbook - August limited Ed kit featuring Websters Pages.
Thanks for looking and come soon!

Back Scrapbooking!

I'm back in the scrapping zone!! I had a lovely day at Littlegreen Crop Circle - and I'm hoping to continue with the scrapping, need to do a bit of organisation of my crafting area, but I'm getting there!!
So I started of with some challenges for UKS - Below is the monthly challenge, to follow the sketch.
 I have used a photo of my gorgeous son at his Prom - didn't he look so smart in his suit!
I have used Prima Cartographer collection of papers and embellishments with the addition of AC Thickers, a few punched out flowers and a butterfly from Etsy.

 July week one challenge - Theme Summer/Sports, Patriotic colours and 5 or more photos
 These are photos of Sam at Sports day and I have used Candy Dots and Chevron punch - both from Stampin Up. 

 July week two challenge - was to follow a Bingo board and if you did four in a row you got maximum points!
 More Prom photos of the girls and Jack this time - and I did a hand drawn boarder, two or more photos, butterflies or birds, inking or misting.  I have used my March My Creative Scrapbook kit - featuring Prima 'Something Blue' collection - added some flowers and butterflies.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look and pop back soon and I'm sure there will be more work to show you on my blog!
