My third entry for the Dec/Jan Challenge Heaven competition. This one is based on the sketch below. I found these papers by My Mind's Eye, part of the Alphabet Soup range, in a new scrapbooking store near my work. They're not the kind of colours I would normally use but for some reason they captivated me and I had to buy them.

Old Time Fun LO

I'm on fire at the moment. :) This is my second entry to Challenge Heaven's Dec/Jan challenges. I originally made this LO for the Sketch challenge, however after I finished I realised it also suited this month's colour challange of Brown, Green and White with 2 photos. I decided I'll pop this into as my colour challenge entry and do another Sketch LO. The green is actually more vibrant in real life, but disappointed with how this one scanned.

A day at the races LO

My first entry for the combined December/January challenges over at Challenge Heaven. This is my entry for the Quote Challenge, criteria were to use the title 'A day at the ...' and it had to have ribbon or twine. I thought this was perfect since I've been meaning to scrap these photos since July 2007 and I used the ribbon I actually wore in my hair that day.

I actually hand-stamped the entire purple background paper with Versamark watermark ink pad and a Kaisercraft stamp to get that effect. The crocheted flower was originally white and made by my mum, however I sprayed it with Glimmermist to fit the LO. I'm pretty happy with how the papers worked together, I've been a bit lazy recently using the same paper schemes so it was good to mix and match this time round.

Make Me Happy ATC's

Since I had some time off over Christmas/New Year, I spent a bit of time back over at One of the games they play is called 'Make Me Happy'. It's a kind of pass-it-on swap, where you select a topic from the post above you to make an ATC in that theme and then list three themes for an ATC you would like to receive. Over time a few off-shoots of the game have sprung up with specific restrictions. I volunteered to make a cow in the 'All Media' game, a gnome in the 'Colourful and Whimsical' game and a white rabbit from American McGees Alice in Wonderland in the 'Character' game.
