This page was meant to be for the third challenge we had to use a song title for the title. Looking through my pics I really couldn't find any that fit any songs I knew so I went with this title, a twist on the ZZ Top song she's got legs. I was so focused on getting the title working right on the page that I totally forgot that it had to be done based on a sketch as well. I did this one for a challenge Ali set over at Em to use 3 patterned papers and stiching and a summer challenge over at CIS. This is the page I did for the first challenge and the one I love the most. We had to use one photo. I know I printed of two but seeing as they are the same photo I counted it as one. We had to alter the photo is some way so to go with the BOM challenge at Zig Zag as well I added wings and horns to my pics and stamped on them. We also had to use a mixed letter title, doodle and do some hand stitching. It took a while but I added french knots around the edge of the flower and paisley feature.

I also managed to do this card as well with some of my bits left over on my bench after I had done my page. I am going to try and do a card or two when I've finished a page to build up my stash so there isn't a mad dash making one when I need it.LOL
I should be getting my first ever kit order in soon. I so can't wait to have a play with it when it gets here. I've already got ideas for two macthing mini albums. At dancing on Saturday Asher and her friend did a teddy swap for the week. Emily's care has been going pretty much eveywhere with her so I thought I would do up one for Emily about what her care bear did while on holidays with Asher and Emily's mum is going to take some photo's of her and Asher's bear Mr Clause and I will do the same for Asher.
Anyway it is late here and I've got work tomorrow. So till next time happy scrapping.

Just thought I'd share some cards I have done recently. The thank you card I did with some of my scraps on my kitchen bench after working on a cj for my American friend Martha with the yummy choc box papers from the Arty Pants dt pack. I was going to post a pic of the page I did here but just incase Martha does pop in I won't. Wouldn't want to spoil the surprisefor her now would I.
These two I did with some of the yummies I had left over from working on my Pure joy page in my last post with the Dt pack from Steph. I am going to try and get into the habit of making a few cards with my scraps and stuff after doing pages before cleaning up.
I'm of work today and down to the doctors as my neck is playing up again. Hopefully I've just pulled it or something.
The final three for the idol comp over at Em are Anthea,Melissa and Amanda. They did some great layouts for round 7 and and the other rounds and so deserve to be in the final three. Can't wait to see what they come up with for the final round and who the idol will be.
I taken the plunge again and joined up at yet another forum. LOL It is becoming as addictive as scrapping lately. I will add a link to my side bar and I will have to make some changes to my friends links as well as there are a few that are members on a couple of the sites that I am on so which section do I put them in.LOL
Anyway that's it for now. Till next time happy scrapping.

Well today was the day I had to take Asher down to her dancing school and put her costume, which I had to do the fiddly bits on through muster. I passed thank goodness. I don't want to have to sew another sequin on anything for ages. This pic was taken inside the class and for some reason the pics taken in there are always grainy. This is one of the better ones. Before this was taken, out in the foyer we had to get into the costume and my little Miss decided she didn't like the stocking and was having a major break down over having to wear them but wear them she did. I tried to get some pics of her all dressed but she just wasn't all that happy that one of her dancing friends was allowed to read her book while she was having her little break down. So I ended up with a sulky pic but love it anyway.
Bother I just hit the wrong button and deleted the card from my post so will have to pop it in the next one.
The next round we had to scraplift 1 of 4 layouts. I chose the one by Rhonna Farrier. Scraplifting is something else I've not done before.
Although much to my delight I was asked to come back into the comp in round 5 as a dt wild card entrant. The round 4 chal was posted before the voting had closed for round 3 so I was working on this page to use for a BOM chal on another site but I kept it aside just incase I got through. The challenge was to use three pics and at least two patterned papers. I so love how this one turned out.

And the best thing about it is now I can share my page with you all. I used one of the photo's I took of Asher earlier this year to use on my first dt project from Arty Pants my sugar cube, which I might add is now in the shop so if any one is out that way and wants to have a look see go ahead. Lots of cutting out of flowers from BG paper on this. The words around the page are Angel with attitude but you just gotta love her.

Steph's mono challenge page and cc pages
My castles in the sand page was for a double sketch chal. It has been ages since I did a double and love how it turned out. The pics are of Asher and Craig making sand castles. There are four more pics of Asher and my sister in law on the pull out tag behind the photos on the left side.
Well that is about all from me for now. Till next time happy scrapping.
