Creative Craft World Challenge

I decided to enter this challenge as my lovely friend Heather was guest designer after winning the challenge last month - hoping she will show me her prize at the next crop we attend together.

The challenge is over at Creative Craft World Challenge blog and they do have some great challenges and examples. This was one of their scrap maps and I do love working from a sketch. Have a look at Heather's example on the blog its fab

Here is mine - its my granddaughters dog Tana and being a Labrador she just loves water and diving under to pick up stones or whatever is thrown in for her

I used Prima Papers and lots of fussy cutting

This was the sketch

Thanks for a great challenge

Things with Wings

This is my entry for challenge 4 in the Cupboard Trilogy blog.

The theme was anything with wings and as I love butterfly's on LO's it seemed an ideal challenge for me.

The photograph is of my granddaughter who minutes before this photo had been up to her knees in the river with her dog

Did quite a lot of fussy cutting and layering

Scrap a Sketch LO

This is my LO this month. I think a lot of the team have found this quite a difficult sketch to work with and there have been some very different interpretations.

I knew I had to go vintagey with it and chose a photo of my mum, grandma and great aunt. The papers are Prima

I cut and embossed the corner and the swirl and the lacing was done with embroidery thread

The title used American Crafts alphas placed on a cut out banner from the paper and I gathered some lace to go behind the Prima flowers
And finally the sketch chosen by Lisa was from Dusty Attic
