Cybercropping the weekend away
Thanks to the girls over at CIS an FA for some fun over the weekend. I got to get 5 out of the 7 challenges done. Dh went out to the boat show today so was out for most of it so that was a definate bonus.
For the first challenge at CIS we had to find something in our kitchen for inspiration. lol I wasn't allowed to be inspired by all my scrummy bg papers covering my kitchen bench. I found a packet of lasanga sheets and used the design on it for a sketch. We also had to include the word home and some hand sticthing.
This is a pic of Asher at two at Daycare where she loved the home corner. It was also the first time she had two piggies in her hair.
The second challenge was also an inspiration one. We had two pics to choose from that Jolene posted. One was a baby nursery pic and the other was a cushion. We also had to use something non scrappy on out pages somewhere. I had just finished of a roll of tape so I used that as a stamp to copy the circles on the cushion as well as the patch work background.

The pics are of Asher on her first b'day.

The third challenge was a sketch and we had to use material and circles. I love these pics of Asher and a good friend of ours Paul taken a few years back now.

Here is a sneak peek at my first challenge for FA. It was an inspiration chal as well. We had to find inspiration in an article of clothing and use no chipboard and stamping. I have always liked this shirt of Ashers and decided to go with that. The reason for just a sneak peek. I was able to kill two birds with one stone and did the challenge around a cj I had here at home to do and the cj owner sometimes pops in so I don't want to spoil her surprise totally now do I. lol

The second chal at FA was a kiss one. Keepsake,ink,stamping and sewing. I choose to do my page about the little scottie men given to me by my great aunt Jean. I couldn't get a good pic of them inside so took them outside for a photo shoot. Asher who hasn't seen them before as I have them stashed away till the day I have somewhere I can display them properly so she was facinated by them.

I didn't get to the third and bonus challenge at FA as Asher was wanting someone to play with her so I thought I'd better do the mummy thing. We had a great time playing shops and a card game.

Till next time happy scrapping girls.
