Scrapping wrap up

Well, the Scrapbook Divas Design Team competition is now done and dusted, just waiting for the boss lady to make her decisions. I loved all 3 challenges and am pleased with what I created so if my dream of making Michelle's team doesn't eventuate, then never mind, I've got some nice work to show for it anyway.

Good luck everyone ... I do not envy Michelle at all having to chose.

So, the third challenge was a double sketch challenge - a 6x12 LO and a card - so here's what I came up with.

As I posted a while back I think I was honoured to be chosen as the December Guest Design Team member over at 3 Angels Scrapping and I've been slowly but surely uploading various projects using the gorgeous products that Jo & Rosy sent me. Check out the gallery for more.
Here's some pics of a Bella! chipboard tag album which I covered with the divine Basic Grey d/s Eskimo Kisses range of pp's. I printed some little pics of the children I took during our very quick Christmas shoot a few weeks ago, and printed the story of Twas The Night Before Christmas onto little cards then decorated the album with lots of kindy glitz, die cut BG stickers and also a few hand cut pieces of the pp raised on d/s foam tape.
I think I'll add some more bling and ribbons and other pretties through out the album to really give it some "sparkle" and "pop" but here it is in its present state.

Christmas Exgravaganza & DT Competition

Hi bloggers ... I've been scrapping up a storm over the last week, you would be amazed at what I've created but I'm only going to share a little here in this post and save the rest for another day.

First up ... Challenge 2 of the Divas DT comp ... use the colours of the logo (pink/green/orange) and scrap a LO in your own, usual style.

So do you think this is me and my usual style? Stupidly I asked DH that question and all got was a roll of the eyes and the "you're kidding aren't you" look, however he did say it was "nice" LOL.

Over at Divas we've kicked off our 12 Days of Christmas Extravaganza with some awesome projects so far, and we're only half way through.
Check out the DIVAS FREE CLASSROOM BLOG for all the instructions and pics for each project. Yes it's free, available for anyone to look at and have a go.
So this LO is my scraplifted version of one the super clever Anne-Marie did for us.
The lovely Nat presented us with this clever and simple idea for pretty Christmas candles so I've whipped up some as little gifts for my girlfriends. Great way to use up scraps too.

Here's the 2 projects I presented for the 12 Days Extravaganza on day 1 - recylcing LOL. Yep these are just altered containers, perfect for popping little pressies in like chocolates, or even socks/jocks/boxers etc for Dad.

This last one is a mint tin and I've made up little vouchers to slip inside for my DH - things like "a massage" or "a free beer" or "a night off from the BBQ" - use your imagination. It's also a great idea for the kids to give.

Stay tuned for more Christmas scrapping projects, remember I said I've been busy ... ;o)
