Good afternoon! This is going to be a super quick post before I pick up my eldest son from school... while his little brother is chilling in his favourite spot (on the couch watching telly). So I had my beautiful friend come over Friday night to spend some quality time together crafting. I haven't been overly crafty lately, so I thought I would do a challenge to get my mojo happening. Scrap the Boys August challenge was to do a monochromatic layout and also use some twine and chipboard. Now, I must admit, monochromatic really isn't my style... but I did have a browse at the DT's work and VOILA! Inspired!!! The very last layout by Michelle got me thinking. I had just bought a new Clifford book for Royce... and it happened to have stickers in the back... and my little boy is such a great sharer. So with the inspiration from Michelle's layout and a very cute photo of Royce with a picture of Clifford he drew at kinder I set to work!
I was slow starting.. but in only one evening this was the result:
Sorry about the photos... They're a bit dull as it's really crappy weather atm. And the close up of my chipboard letters really don't do them justice :-) These look AWESOME in real life, even if I do say so myself :-D Very simple... red paint, glossy accents and black texta around the edges.
Well that's it from me. I better get organised for school pick up! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a terrific day!
Good afternoon!!! Well it's been a while! Life has been happening :-) I've done a little scrapping and card making here and there, but haven't shared. And, every now and again, I've been on the net looking for inspiration... it can be a little addictive... and a little distracting lol. Anyway, along the way I found a card challenge site. CAS(E) this sketch. CAS stands for Clean and Simple... gotta love that :-) The sketches are awesome!!! I actually made a couple of cards a few weeks ago using sketch #37. Loved how they turned out. So I thought I would have a go at this week's sketch.
So here is the sketch:
And here is my take on it:
Gorgeous! Used up some of my scraps too. I have heaps of scraps, so I'm definitely going to try and sit down and make a few more over the next day or so. The simplicity of the sketch makes it so versatile... I already have a few more ideas up my sleeve ;-)
Well that's it from me today, as I have to head off shortly to pick up the youngest from kinder. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're having a beautiful day xoxox
