First attempt at a Mood Board challenge

Good evening

So tonight is the last night of my holidays and I thought I better get my challenge uploaded with it also being the end of the month.

I have had my first attempt at a Mood Board Challenge which is over at Jot Magazine and the mood board that had to be used was

And this is my attempt

So I used a lot of different products and techniques for me as things have changed a little since I didn't scrap much last year but I'm loving it and can't wait for a rather large order with new goodies to arrive.
So I'm off as it's almost bed time for me, alarm is set, break & lunch for tomorrow organised and now it's time to turn off the computer, catch up on the latest episode of Glee and then it's nite nite.
Happy Scrappin

Inspirational Post @ Bearly Mine Designs

So as you can see I've been away from my blog for quiet a while this month but for once I was prepared and had all my challenges uploaded with scheduled post before I left on my holidays.

The 29 of the month has come around very quickly and my holidays are officially over as of today, I was lucky enough to have tomorrow and Saturday as my scheduled days off on the new roster so I still have two days before heading back to work.

So this card I'm absolutely in love with, I must say it's probably one of my most favourites even though it's quiet  a simple card with not a lot of embellishments. This card was order by one of my hubby's work collegue's who's ordered a specialised card before, it was to be for a friends 50th birthday. She specifically asked that 50 and the ladies name be placed onto the card so that's what I've done.

The papers I've used for this card are available at Bearly Mine Designs and the set that I've used is

I absolutely love these Mixed Media papers and can't wait to keep using them over and over again.
The products I've used are

Mood Board challenge at D-Lish Scraps

So I said I'd be back shortly

I'll keep this post quick as I babbled on in the previous one, so this one is for D-Lish Scraps, this is my first attempt at doing a mood board challenge and it also contained a sketch and for all of those that know me I can't resist a sketch as I think it makes life a lot easiers and just loved the colours so I had to go for it.

The mood board was

So this is my entry
So I "Guess you can't guess what I got for my birthday" LOL LOL

Nighty Nite

May challenge at White with 1

Good evening

So with being on holidays I've actually managed to get this months challenge over at White with 1 completed and it's only the 5th of the month. Woo Hoo

So the challenge this month is

ww1 gold
This was quiet a difficult challenge as I don't have a lot of gold in my stash as it isn't something I use often as I tend to use silver more frequently, so this is what made it more of a challenge.
So the photo I've used in this layout is of mum & dad's XK120 Jag that dad completely rebuilt, they went away on their honeymoon in this car and held onto it for a few years but unfortunately when they started planning their family it had to go as it was only a two seater, hence no where for a baby seat.
Had the whole day in my craftroom creating this layout along with another one but even though I've still got over another 3 weeks off work I'll be away for most of the rest of the month which means not much crafting time.
The products I've used
Cremen Creations crochet flower, charms & fake crystal leaf
American Crafts cs
Crafters Companion misting stencil
Tattered Angels glimmer mist
Prima Flower
Making Memories, Basic Grey & American Crafts alpha's
Spellbinder Nestabilities dies
Stampin Up border punch
Misc cs
So that's me for this post, will be back shortly with another.
Have a great week.
