And Me!!!

Hello everyone :)
This weekend I am doing my first online classes for UKS!! The Green Buttons House is hosting a Scrapping Bonanza weekend to help get everyones mojo flowing again and I have supplied 2 classes! So I thought I would share a couple of sneek peeks with you :)
Friday class

Saturday class

Sunday night I remembered I had not done my layout for last weeks weekly challenge on UKS...oops!! A bit of quick thinking and this is what I came up with
Mikael was sailor in a school earlier this year and while I was taking photo's of him in his costume, Alix said "and me!" so he posed in the headscarf for mummy :) I must scrap the photo's of Mikael sometime too lol! So many layouts so little time! lol!

C4e R#52 - Lavender & Lace

Hello :)
Sorry I'm so late with my Friday post, I've been preparing my first online classes for a mini cyber crop on UKS this weekend.
This weeks C4E Recipe is to use the sketch, use the colour lavender and add some lace. Got to be one of my favourite recipes! The DT girls have done a stunning job again this week and the prize up for grabs is 25 stamped images :)
My new found love is Kaisercraft! These papers are delish! One is lightly glittered, one is foiled and the other is glossed! Yummy!
I came across some silver thread in one of my local stores last week which was perfect for this card. They have lots of yummy colours so will be visiting them again soon!

Have you seen Meljen's stamps? gorgeous! These cute bunnies are from a free digi download pack from the store, the sentiment came with it along with some gorgeous stamps. I have painted the bunnies with twinkling H2O's, sadly the photo doesn't show how twinkly the card is :(
My 'little' sister has posted her first post on her blog! She has been scrapbooking with me for a couple of years now, first at my home and then at the C4E crop in Banwell. If you have time please hop over to say hi and welcome her to blogland :)
Id like to also enter this card into the following challenges:
I'll be back soon with layouts and sneek peeks!

C4E R#51 - Autumn Harvest

Hello everyone :)
Sssshh!! don't tell anyone I got my card done on time this week!! Yay!! Surprising really as it's the C4E Crop this Sunday and I have sooooo much to do!! which is not surprising lol!
The recipe this week is to use the sketch with Autumnal colours :)  As always the DT girls have made some beautiful inspiration, hop over......HERE.....to see :)
This week I have used some beautiful crate products which have just landed at C4E!! They will be available next week, if I don't use it all up first lol!
The sewing machine was dragged out from under the piles of kits being prepared for Sunday. I still can't sew in a neat circle but it wasn't too bad. I sewed zig-zag "circles" ;) onto the doilies.
I love the beautiful Crate Paper Restoration Chipboard!!
With all that sewing on the front of the card (tricky turning the whole card in circles lol!!) I had to cover the mess with some DP.
If I get chance I'll pop back with some sneek peeks from the crop, otherwise I'll share everything with you next week :)
Thanks for stopping by have fun!

C4e R#50 - Peek-a- Boo!!

Hello everyone :)
It's Friday and time for a new recipe on the C4E challenge blog This week we are asking you to use the sketch and add an aperture.
The DT Girls have some beautiful examples again for you in the DT gallery and the prize this week is a choice of 3 Digital stamps from the C4E Store
I started my project last weekend but didn't get chance to finish it until last night :(

I'm not sure what to call this lol! It's a card on top of 4 little matchbox drawers!
The aperture is above the little hedgehog image cut with spellbinders nestabilities. The ribbon came off my birthday cake this week lol!
Here's a look inside...
and the cute little hedgehog...
Sadly you can't see the gorgeous shimmer from the glimmer mist. My wonderful UKS teammies sent me a bottle of Tattered Angels glimmer mist along with 2 Tim Holtz dies!! Thanks girls I love them :)
This was the first time I've used the glimmer mist and it got everywhere lol! I love it!!! :)
I'll leave you with the recipe, thanks for stopping by :)

This weeks recipe on the c4e challenge blog is to use the sketch and an angel or fairy theme.
The prize is a chance to be a guest designer with us for the whole of October. The DT girls have done a stunning job with the gallery as always :)
I wanted a Christmas fairy or angel for my card but only had a strawberry fairy stamp in my collection so I found this image in the Angels & Fairies design resource book by Rebecca Balchin.
I bought some gorgeous new paper pads from Kaiser craft, both purple colours! After finding that I have a lack of purple papers lol!
The image was printed onto cardstock and coloured with copics, I now have my C1 refill Yay! The photo's don't show the glitter very well but I've used stickles on her wings :)

New Term

Good morning :)
Today is the start of a new school year! Mikael starts Yr4 today! It doesn't seem 5 minutes since he was starting in reception which is where Alix (munchkin) starts on Monday! Yikes!!
This layout was completed for last weeks UKS weekly challenge. I have used photos from 2008 when Mikael started Yr2. He wasn't really that sad to be going to school he loves school lol! He just hates the yearly photo I take on the first day of school :) lol!
I got out the fabulous Tim Holtz masks for this layout as well as the glossy accents and chipboard :) The DPs are really old Hot Off The Press papers from my stash (my something old for the challenge)
I loved how the glossy accents reacted with the distress inks on the chipboard!!
I used the Ransom masks as stencils for the title and gave them a coating of Glossy accents before adding them to the layout.
