LGS 27th March

Good morning all, this weeks challenge on craftbubble was to follow the sketch and the rather wicked theme of boys and buttons lol.

For this weeks challenge i have used my Scottish lofty stamp and gave him a nice grey kilt. the background papers are all from the new papermania collection "it's a mans world" and the buttons are also papermania. For the sentiment I have used a navy blue peeloff to tye in with the blue theme with the papers and buttons.
Off to make some more challenge cards

Hello all!
Heres my challenge entry for this week. This weeks theme was to use no backing papers! That was hard lol. So what I have done is I have embossed cupcake designs and used pink and purple embossing powder to tie in with the rest of the card.
I have used one of my birthday D&D stamps and coloured him in black for his coat, cocktail pink for his party hat and purple for the patch on his tummy

LGS 13th March

Good Evening all, well i have had such a busy weekend that ive only just got the photograph taken for this weeks sketch.
This weekend was the first weekend ive been off from work on challenge day but i couldnt get crafting as i was in Edinburgh at my boyfriends as we were going to see the Scotland v England game at Murrayfield on saturday evening and then it was my sisters 18th on sunday as well as being mothers day.
Anyway i managed to get my card done yesterday... so here it is.
This weeks theme was our favourite things, so with paddys day being tomorow i thought this little guy would be perfect. One of my favourite holidays was to Dublin a few years back, just my mum and I. The light on my camera hasen't picked up my brads properly, they are gold to match the pennies in his pot of gold.

Well ive just to take a picture of my next card so i shall be back in a moment lol

A Scrappy Day

Hi all, Ive had a very practical day today, i had to wait on a guy comming to upgrade our electricity meter so i had the whole morning to sit arround and do nuthing lol so.... I cought up with some scrapbooking. I finished off this layout for the Scrap Addicts group on craft bubble. As an added extra for this months challenge we had an extra black and white theme so i made a page for my pups 1st birthday =)

My second layout i done today was for Marchs layout on the same group. This months there was no theme just the layout, so i got to go wild lol. I have just recieved my new stash from qvc so i got to rip it open and have a play and this is what i came up with lol. I found lots of baby pictures of myself in my photo box so i thought they would be perfect and heres the final result.

And my final layout that i done was just me playing about. When i was looking for my pictures for my march layout i came accross lots of pictures from when i went to paris with my school when i was in 5th year. We spent the week doing all the site seeing and shopping you could imagine ...and spent the whole day in disneyland! well here it is
