Well, Puddle Duck’s party weekend, followed by trips out and driving to Yorkshire and back was so tiring that I needed a rest. I cancelled everything this weekend and caught up with a bit of scrapping. I did a fist full of challenges from Soul Scrappers, using up some of the stash I’d kept out when I packed up for the party.
First is this LO for Shazza’s challenge to use the REM song Shiny Happy People as inspiration. The kids were pretty happy climbing on this elephant after a party last year. The papers are all American Crafts Garden Cafe.
To go with that is another LO using five photos from that day:
Yes you read that correctly – five photos – the fifth is hidden and here it is.
This was for one of the birthday challenges – to scrap about shoes. The kids decided that it was easier to climb on the elephant without shoes and I snapped the pile at the base of the statue. Shimelle fans will recognise the concept behind these two LOs from her 4X6 PhotoLove course last year. I also used the 10 photo LO from that series for another birthday challenge – scrapping photos from Shaw Park Gardens but the photo is not good enough to share. It will have to wait for another time.
The next Soul Scrappers birthday challenge was to take inspiration from an item of children’s clothing. Here’s my LO using buttons and scraps from Puddle Duck’s summer uniform:
And since I’m in a sharing mood, would you like to see the LO I created for my recipe challenge? Yes? Well here it is:
And here’s the recipe:
- A sheet of white cardstock
- Use a new tool or technique
- Use up scraps – no new sheets of paper or packs of alphas or embellishments
- Embellish in threes
