May 2012 Scrapaholix

Hello people! Hope this entry finds you well and happy. It's that time again - I'm very much looking forward to seeing all of the Scrapaholix gals this weekend... we always have a laugh and that's what it's all about isn't it?!?
This month, we're working with papers from We R Memory Keepers. I think one of the best things about Scrapaholix, is that we don't get to choose the kits. This means of course, that you are, at times, well out of your comfort zone, trying things you wouldn't necessarily have tried otherwise. Another good thing, right?
So without further ado, here's the sample layout:
Apologies if chickens aren't your thing! If you're coming to class tomorrow or Saturday, there's not a whole lot of extras you need to bring - I think the only item on the page which isn't from the kit, made by me for you or hand made, is the little grey Alpha stickers spelling 'sweet'. Perhaps bring along some scissors for fussy cutting to make your life easier!
I meant to print my two photos 9cm x 13cm (a pre set on the on line printing thingy I use), but actually, they came out smaller than that for some reason! The point I'm badly making, is that if you have two small photos to bring along, fab; if not, I think this layout will work just as well with one 6 x 4 photo, probably landscape being the best.
So, hope you like, see you soon! xxx

Another Challenge!

I'm really getting into these challenges! This one's from another YouTube favourite, who goes under the name of Coloredsprinklegirl. You can find her challenge here: Her challenge was to create something about you... not the dog, or the cat, or your kids, or your significant other, but YOU!
Here's my effort:
Now, before you say anything, yes I know - my kids AND husband are mentioned... but the message that I wanted to get across is that they are part of me - a huge part! The other part of the challenge was to do stuff you wouldn't normally try - well I think I accomplished that! On this (busy) page I've punched the hearts across the page, then used waste from cutting the stars with my Silhouette to back the holes - never done that before; I've doodled around EVERYTHING - never done that before; I've cut into a brand new paper that I've only just received - never EVER done that before!!! Lastly, I've shown my very poor maths skills to the world by saying that 2+4=1, though I've probably done that inadvertently thousands of times before. Of course it doesn't, but if you read the words next to the numbers, it makes sense.
You have until the 5th to take part, and link somewhere that Patty can see it to her Youtube vid - good luck! Hope you like! xxx
