The second challenge we had to use a book title as the title for our page and include 1 ring 2 ribbons and 3 rubons. We live on a street named Wood so this is about Asher little house in the wood.
The card from the scraps. I had fun making up cards from the scraps that I may just try and do more before cleaning up my bench after each page.
Well there is not much else happening out here at the moment. Back to work tomorrow. So wish that I didn't have to work. Oh well not too much I can do about that expect keep on buying lotto tickets.
Thanks for popping by and any comments you may leave.
Till next time happy scrapping.

I entered these to pics into a similar comp over at Em. So love the second one of her peeking through the rails. I actually had to take a few pics last night of my little dag. She made me laugh so much when she came out of her bedroom after getting into her pjs that I had to take a photo or two. Will share them tomorrow as I forgot to add.Let me just say that I don't think she has an eye for fashion at the moment. lol
Well that is about all from me for now. I'm starting to fall asleep on my chair. lol
Till next time, thanks for popping by and for your comments if you leave any that is and happy scrapping.

I was able to get my 123 challenge page done before the cyber crop on Friday too. For the 123 challenge we had to use cardstock only, stamping and green. This is what I came up with. I hadto do some creative covering yet again as I messed up the stamping. The photo was taken a few years back at a golf club xmas do where Sants was giving out pressents. Asher was waiting ever so patiently NOT for her name to be called out and when she got her pressie she was so excited.And this is a page I have done for the second challnge for the 123 cyber crop on Friday. I had a blast chatting away with all the girls and enjoyed chatting away. MSM was going crazy but it was a fun kinda crazy. Thanks for all the laughs girls.
For the challenge we had to use polka dots, material and the quote learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow. I had fun with this one too.
Now for my good news. After last weeks effort I had thought my luck would of run out but not just yet it hasn't. lol I won a rak from the lovely Carole. She had a little blog comp going and her daughter pulled my name out of hat so to speak and I won lotto too. Not that much, enough to pay for this weeks lotto and a mag for me and Asher.
Well that is pretty much all from me for now. I may just get to work on another of my cyber crop challenges or I could do my felt page for CIS or maybe even make a start on Fleur's cj. Oh well what ever I do I am sure I'll have fun.
Thanks for popping by and for any comments you may leave.
Till next time happy scrapping.

The 3rd challenge was a skecth and we had to use at least three different patterned papers from different brands. I used some crate paper, basic grey and some MME. Asher had just turned 2 in these photos. I can't believe how much she has grown.
My news is that I made it through to the next round of the CIS dt comp. I now have to do a page using felt. I'm of to buy some later on today but for now I've got my monogram to do for the apple comp and my 123 challenge page to do too.

This is a close up of the story I made up to go with the layout.
Well I had better pop this in the gallery over at the apple yard. I could only post one image in the gallery there and with out seeing under the photo flap the whole idea of the layout would be lost.
Till next time happy scrapping.

This is taken from the other end of the bench looking down to the window. Nine times out of ten the pile of goodies usually ends up meeting the sink and the window.I took the last few photos while I was standing on a chair, this is the right hand side of it
and this is the left hand side of it.
At the end of the night if I know I am scrapping the next day everything gets stack up in some sort of order on the back edge of the bench and it all gets covered by the cloth that you can see under all that mess.
Bingo has started again over at S & C and if the last game is anything to go it s going to be a whole lot of laughs.
And now onto my news. The page I did for the last weeks texture challenge, Desire over at the apple yard was picked for the gallery of the day on my American site. I was so wrapped when I found out the news this morning and then even more so when I found out a little bit later it won this week challenge. Thanks very much to the girls over at the apple yard. If you want to check out all the other yummy pages by the others you can do so here
This weeks challenge is to scrap something from around your home that is red. Arghh now red is somthing I don't really have alot of around here so I have been thinking on it for most of the day. The door to Asher's cubby out side is a sort of red colour, her old unused sand pit shell is red, she has a fav red train and her fav car is also red. I was even thinking about taking a close up photo of Pooh's fade,well worn red top and scrapping that. But tonight I sat here and asked her to bring me something red so she headed of to the old meat safe where she stashes some of her toys and brought back something that has given me an idea. Now just to get the right photo and scrap it.
I was surposed to be going out today and catch up with my friend I made the tag for until I got a call from the school. Asher had just been sick so there went my catch up plans as well as my scrap shopping plans. Oh well. Thankfully Asher didn't get any worse durring the day so she is back of to school tomorrow. I'm sort of glad that it did happen in a way as Jolene over at CIS posted a fun challenge today as a part of her dt comp. If we wanted to get some extra points we had to chat up a storm on the forum and 30 new posts got us 1 point and 50 got us 2. So I sat down with some coffee and chatted up a storm. Three hours or so later, lots of laughs at some of the posts and a numb bottom I got my 50 and I still haven't got my border page done.
Sorry about the long post guys. I didn't know I could ramble on for so long. lol
So till next time happy scrapping.

The last challenge was a sketch. I did this one with one of the many photos I took of Asher and her first day back of school. I made a start on her grade 1 pages, it is a pity that I am so behind on her pre primary album. Oh well you get that. I used my silent setter on this to make the holes. Not too sure if anyone has one but I find it so hard to get the holes done. I was going to do it right the way round but ended up just doing the four each side. If I hadn't of picked it up second hand from the markets for $10 after my girl friend paid $40 odd for hers I would be pretty disapointed in it. I was actually going to back the holes with black bazzil and forgot to do it before taking the photo so will do that later. Not too sure about the flower set up at the bottom. Agter looking at it on the screen here sort of looks like frog eyes too me.LOL
And this is one of the pages I did with my kit from CIS. Still got heaps left so hope to do some more with it later.
I am still to do my border challenge page for the CIS comp I am in. I'm going to be working on that later on tonight. We are of out for chinesse tonight.

I've only taken a photo of one set of the six double pages as they are pretty much the same layout, just different photos.
I got the idea for doodling the frames from Janelle's blog when I was blog hopping one night. I loved it so much on her layout that I tried it myself.
Thursday, February 01, 2007
I was able to double up on this one. On my American forum I am part of a critque group and we have challenges set every now and then by one of the members. I managed to include the three aspects of the challenge in this page.
I would also like to thank the girls over at the apple yard for the lovely comments I got for this page. When I was reading them today I actually got goose bumps and was even starting to get a bit teary. Thanks HEAPS guys.
Anyway got to run and get Asher and then make the mad dash to swimming.
Will post the dt stuff tomorrow after I have taken them down to Steph.
Till then happy scrapping.
And one of her unpacking some of her stuff into her bucket that sits on her desk.
I was pretty good and held it together but then if she had been upset about it all it may have been a different story. She pretty much couldn't wait for school to start and for me to leave. And we got the usual comment from her when we asked her how it was.
