What a Scrappy Life


Friday, 15 May 2009

Finalling got around to photographing my other layouts that I did over the week-end. I know I say it every month but I do love the GoGo kits, they put together paper and embellishments that I wouldn't think about putting together and the end results are amazing.

We Won! - Bellaboo April Kit , I did a layout of my sons winning football team, again. This time it was the Easter Football Camp.

A technique I learnt from Cleo Jarvis - distressing the edges and making a small tear and putting some stitching across.

Again used some stitching down the side of the paper.

Added some rub-ons over the paper.

I Love to Scrap - this is a layout for the June Gogo Retreat Challenge, using some special edition hybrid elements. The remit was to use at least 3 of the elements on the layouts. I've managed to use 7. I must admit that I like the hybrid ranges alot, and the fact that you can use it over and over again is brill.

The photos where taken at my Skrapztacular 2 Retreat in November organised by Skrapz.

Wednesday was our craft day at Julies this time, where I did some thank you cards and a couple of birthday cards. Julie even provided lunch which was great. Bev eventually turned up at 11, she always has a tale to tell, but she did bring some wonderful homemade biscuits, which when I go shopping will give the reciept ago.

On Thursday evening it was the Bromsgrove Crop, I'm so used to calling it "Belleboo crop" so this will take some use to. Well, I managed to complete 8 No. 8x8 layouts for my neices Prom album, which I'm trying to get completed for the weekend has her aunty is visiting and it will save me on the postage - LOL. It was good to get back to normal and have a laught with the girls. I just added a few of the pages.

There is plenty of spaces left at this crop, which is every 3rd Thursday of each month at Fairfield Village Hall, I sure you would be more than welcome, cost £3.50 inc. refreshments. So if you are in the area, and fancy crafting for a few hours, pop in and meet us girls - we don't bite (honest) - LOL. Liberty also runs a Saturday all-day crop which is the 1st Saturday of each month. The June one has Cleo Jarvis (new owner of Bellaboo) doing a few classes, pop onto Bellaboo web-site for more details.

Also received on Wednesday, May Gogo Kit, another one that I love, hopefully will be cutting into on Sunday at my Solihull Crop. Had a Grab It - project kit - the example was done by Laura - I just love the way she added the photos - will hopefully be doing mine - eventually ...

Thanks for stopping by ....
