Fun challenge

A white space challenge! The Week 4 challenge at Scrapbook Outlets NZ, Celebrate NZ comp, was Remoteness, so we had to do a LO with white space! It co-incided with a little fun challenge I was having with a friend, to do a black and white space LO with a pop of colour. LOL! Good timing! I have to say that white space is growing on me! The journalling says "Celebrate her Kiwi Ingenuity in buying a pair of children's slipperswith grip rubber soles to put over her own boots that were slipping on the snow and ice. The 2 hour walk and views was worth the few $ for the socks" Queenstown, Skytrail, 2010

They come from all over the world, so, in the meantime, click on their links in my sidebar and check out some of their awesome work.

Quick LO and some cards

I cut this tree out from the Cricut Heritage cartridge for another layout and didnt use it, some Echo park alphas and border strips from last months SBS kit and a Sassafrass journalling sticker all left over from recent projects. I used my favourite Martha Stewart border punch and a gorgeous Prima flower. I have taken a bit of a fancy to doing LO's with white backgrounds lately!

At our local craft group last month, Elspeth gave the challenge. She gave us 2 pieces of beautiful Cristina Re papers, one pattern, one plain and we had to make 2 or 3 cards. These are mine.

New Challenge Blog

There is a new challenge blog starting "downunder" called Southern Girls Challenge. You can find them here!
Yay! I love a challenge! I have sent this LO in below for their DT call. Looking forward to them getting underway!
This photo of Em was taken 23 years ago and I had just finished making her these new little overalls from a Burda pattern. Note that I have put a bit of the same Snoppy ribbon on the layout as is on her overalls! How is that for being a hoarder!!! I still have about 30cms left so I guess one day the Grandies will end up with a piece somewhere! Oh dear!

I have been doing the Celebrate NZ comp over at Scrapbook Outlet. I am really enjoying the challenges so far.
Week 2 _ Black and white.
I have been wanting to do this photo of Lloyd for a while. When he was training as an aircraft engineer he needed extra money for living and a friend talked him into doing a bit of modelling. He didnt make his fortune, but at least we got a few nice photos! I love the Tim Holtz cogs which I ran through the cuttle bug swirl folder. The transparency is Prima and I added lots of tiny buttons top LH corner.

This is Week 3_ no 8 wire:
 For my wire feature I carried on the fence that was in the photo behind Grandfather and made some red wire flowers which I layered with the burnt orange flowers. I made a flower using my new Tim Holtz flower die. I like the way the colours came together in this LO.

Some Scrapbook Studio LO's

I have been getting a bit behind in posting my Lo's. Today I thought I would catch up a little and post some that I have done over the last few months with Scrapbook Studio DT papers.

It was so exciting to see these two get engaged! A wedding in Sydney coming up in October next year! Another shopping trip to buy an outfit! Bother!! LOL!! So cant wait!
I love these beautiful Sassafraslass, Indie girl, papers. I havent done a lot of white space layouts and felt like trying something new. I could get hooked on white space! It was fun!

Bright Pink Paislee this time. The kids had just had a fun night at a friend's 25th birthday party. I just loved this photo and it was sent to me at just the right time to use in a LO with these bright papers! The background paper was left over from cutting flourishes on the cricut and had escaped the rubbish bin. I alcohol inked some bling and used a Thickers flourish.

The Hen's Party, a wine tour on Waiheke Is, was so much fun!!! Our tour guide had a great sense of humour and thought a photo shoot outside the Ram's rugby league club was appropiate for the occasion! The journalling is on the tag tucked into the LHS of the photo. The paper is a cool Bo Bunny Dot and a Hambly transparency. I made the flower using organza, my heat gun, Diamond Dust and a Prima centre.

This LO was fun! It was for Lisa's challenge to do a layout with the title "Attitude is Everything". You also had to include a stamp, fabric and some fussy cutting. I did a take on the title, "Cattitude is Everything" and boy! does this cat have attitude. She is definitely Queen around here!
