It time to start thinking about Christmas, making a few cards each month so that by the end of November, there will be a nice big stack ready just to write. This is a challenge started by my lovely friend Sue and one that I really am glad I take part in :)
I've kept my cards very simple this month but I do actually like them -
and here are all 5 together.
Why not join in - come December, you will be so glad you did!
I love this picture of Erin-Rose and her Great Grandmother and thought it would be a nice one to scrap for the weekly challenge on UKs.
The challenge was to:
1: use the sketch
2: use square photo(s) 3: use 2 different Alphas 4: use 10 embellishments (these do not have to be the same) 5: use 3 or more patterned papers 6:use a love theme (could be someone you love/somewhere you love/something you love or using hearts or Valentine's day or a wedding etc etc) 7: use punched or die cut shapes
We challenge use to pick 3 things from the list (each is worth 10 points). Feel free to use more than 3 of our ideas but you can only claim 30 points maximum
I seemed to manage all the criteria I think with my page!
Erin-Rose had to spend the night in hospital on Thursday - she wasn't drinking enough and the doctors were concerned that she would be dehydrated so needed monitoring and giving Dioralite throughout the night which worked and she was allowed home on Friday morning. Lucy sent me this picture of Erin fast asleep in a big girls bed and I just had to scrap it :)
I used the criteria from the weekly challenge on UKs which was:-
A - alter something B - use brads, buttons, bingo card - at least one C - use cream, claret or cool colours - at least one
This is what I chose to alter - some labels off a garment -
and this is the finished result.
The envelope contains the journalling of the events of the day.
