Getting in some last minute challenges

First one is this 15th March sketch challenge at Stuck sketches.... This is what the sketch looks like
 here is my take on the sketch

On this one I have used paper from 6x6 Three bugs in a rug Blast Off range, Title is from unknown chipboard which I altered, Dusty Attic cog, A Lil' Somethin flag. Kaiser rubons and kaiserkraft postmarks stamp, Ink and Mist of course... I just mixed up some water and ink refill for the title.....and little handmade embillies by ME

And of course the close up.....
Lets see what else I can come up with this afternoon in my rush for the end of the month... Will it be the 1st of March sketch at Stuck or Scrap Jacked???? Will have to wait and see.......

And the Winner was...... Another Stuck Sketch YAY
Ok so here is the sketch.....

And here is my take....

This is one of my beautiful little niece Princesses!!
On this page I used paper from 6x6 pad from Echo Park Be Mine and some from Papermania. A bit of bling, flowers, random alphas and rub ons.
And of course the close up... This is also using the WOW chipboard heart that was free when you purchased some WOW..... I purchased mine from Creatively inspired....I altered it by embossing and then inking edges with black paper stuck on the back and then of course black pearls to finish.

So happy that this month I got both the Stuck Sketches complete this is a first I often just admire then sketches and DT beautiful work and never have a go. Challenge websites are really a great way to make sure that our albums to get feed each month :)

Well not sure if will get anymore done today so maybe put scrapjacked on the list for next month (again lol).

Scrap the Boys March challenge

Two challenges complete in one day and the night is still young lol.....
This month at STB the challenge was to use LIFE IS GOOD in the title, to have red somewhere on the page and handwritten journaling..... Why not have a go at the challenge and see what you come up with
Here is my take...
This is a little grungier that I would usually go.... trying new ideas and My ideas for this have come from one of Wendy Smith LO with the star masking and Crystal Goulding with her paint splatters, Thanks girls for the inspiration.
So for the challenge requirements, not only does the page have red in the photo I have use red pearls (and the orange is pretty close LOL) the hand written journaling I created my own title free hand and have a little journaling as well.
Good luck with all your own creating

March Scrap the Girls Challenge!!

This month's challenge was to scrap a celebration and what bigger occasion is there but a wedding!!!

This photo was taken at My Wedding in 2008, coming up to 4 years in just a few day. In the pic is 3 generations with My Mum, My daughter Brittany and Me. These are the kind of pics that you look back on in the future as such a special time.
Showed Mum the LO and she loved it but forgot that I had made one for her birthday a few years ago using the same pic, this one has a little more technique I think LOL. You all know what I'm talking about have a look at LO that you created a few years ago and see how your style has changed.

Loving all the sketch challenges and can't go past the great one at Anna's Craft Cupboard this month. Sketch by the very talented Wendy Smith why not give it ago Here!!

And here is My take on the Challenge...
Love these pics of my Boy and his love for our Boxer Arlie. Was actually watching the play this morning and was trying to remember what it was like before we had dogs a couple of years ago. How different it is for kids to grow up with animals, Such a great companion for him!!
On this LO I have used Echo park a boys life, RW Laser cuts chipboard title, Dusty Attic chipboard Cog, Kaiser rub-ons, Gummies rubber stickers, Kaiser corrugated tag, Twine, Tim Holtz crackle paint and A Lil' Something fabric heart.
Off to find my next challenge for this month, Scrap that song has a good one this month, Hits song from year or decade of your birth. Lots of good song in 1981!! Which one to pick is the question???
