Busy weekend

It was cybercrop time over on ukscrappers and i had such a fun weekend scrapping away and was pleased i got nearly all of it done only 2 classes and 1 challenge i didnt complete but can always do them in my own time
First here is a lo i did for the pre crop challenge before it all kicked off i used my little shoebox and sassafrass lass papers a lot of cutting out but am so pleased with how it looks

Next is 2 los i did with the mystery kit i always try to get the mystery kit as i love the fun of it and you dont know what you get til it arrives then its a secret til the gallery goes live i really struggled with the kit this time tho it had lots of yellow and i dont do yellow that well i think i was limited too not bein able to print stuff out as i think had i had a printer i could have done a lot more but not to worry i like the los i did

This one just needs a title adding to it which i will do when i can think of what i want to put on it

This next lo is quite simple i wanted it to have a fresh look and i acheived that this was for a challenge to use metal and hearts i have used a metal heart as the flower centre and a metal ribbin slider
I loved this class by MJM (michelle) i just love her work she is amazing had fun ripping tearing inking with this and the sassafrass bungle jungle papers were perfect for what i wanted to do with this
Next is a mini book by annette (voodoo vixen) she makes some fab mini books and i had fun with this altho it was rushed to get uploaded on time i think i will make another one of these tho as it has a stand at the back and would make a great gift
This lo was for the final challenge where you used the title border and journalling spot from previous challenges to combine them all on to this lo i just love this photo of nathan he is about 6 year old in this photo (he is now 14) he has such a cool expression
Next is a class lo it does have roses as the flowers but after several attempts at trying to do the roses i gave up as i just couldnt do them so i scrunched circles of paper and added buttons as centres and used these instead of the roses which it looks ok
This is one of my fave los of the weekend the challenge was to do a lo about what is popular with you right now and theres is nothing that is more popular in my life right now than twilight saga i am totally obsessed and only 2 days til new moon cant wait so looking forward to it
This next lo was for the challenge of something your proud of and to use stitching i stitched the heart in the bottom corner and drew stitches around the pp i am so proud of my dad he is the best dad in the world and i miss him so much i still cant beleive he isnt here the angels took him away on 25th july 09 and thats when our worlds collapsed but to have all the memories is a blessing and to have him as my dad i couldnt have asked for a better dad in the world LOVE YOU x x x
This next lo was for the challenge of courage and to use felt fabric on the lo photo of dd on the big wheel she def has a lot of courage going on that at 10 yrs old cos me at 34 am scared to death by it and will not go on it lol have used felt flower and leaves in the corner
This was for shimelles class i bought a kit for this one and was happy with the contents i loved this class the main piece opens out to reveal more photos and i thought the colours were perfect for photos we had a night out in fancy dress
This is opened out inside to reveal more photos
This lo was for a challenge using a sketch and a journey theme so i used a photo from my sisters 21st when i had my first ride in a limo
This next lo was a class by taniwha it was theraputic rolling the paper for down the side of the photo and i handsticthed on the ribbon too
This lo was using the challenge of friends and gingham ribbon its an 8x8 to go in my friends scrapbook that i have the brown/mint combo was perfect of this photo of me and my friend donna

New desk

After a tough couple of months i am hoping to start get back in to scrapping as not done any in a long time and it may stop me dwelling on things too much as i get upset everytime i think about my dad i am really starting to miss him now
Anyway i have a new pc desk to craft on i bought it off ebay and it looks tons better than before altho the before pic below shows my previous kitchen worktop desk it wasnt that tidy as that pic was taken just after i put the worktop up and looked worse than that lol i craft in my bedroom havin moved from the kitchen when my stash overflowed and grew lol

These are the after pics with my new corner pc desk it still needs a bit of sorting i need to work my way through the pizza boxes on the floor lol i want to get an expedit unit from ikea when i can afford to to go alongside the desk as it will look better and tidier and oh yeah my new twilight pic is on the wall just in view lol
