{ScrappingClearly DT} Spring Cyber Crop Challenges and FUN!!

Hi there crafty friends!!

I recently said that I had been busy, busy crafting up a storm and I was not lying 😉 Over at ScrappingClearly we had an online Cyber Crop this past weekend and there are 8 fun challenges to play along with! I am here today to share with you my takes on the ones I have completed and I am hoping to fit in more crafting to complete some more!!

First up was my Colour Challenge and you can see all the close up’s for that challenge here and also the process video here.

Challenge 2 was by the VERY talented Bernii Miller and she did this recipe challenge!

Don’t you love the method!?

And here is my take

And a few close up’s! I just loved this challenge and love this story of my littlest guy, he is so funny!!

Challenge 4 was this awesome sketch by the awesome Chloe Neilson


And here is my take.

And some close ups. I just love working with sketches, they take so much of the guess work out if but are so easy to adapt and totally make your own!

And the final challenge I have completed is Tania’s mixed media tag challenge. This is not something I ordinarily do but loved it!

I had already had this gorgeous Tiddly Inks image coloured up and thought I may as well pop her onto something!!

The criteria was use paint (I used Colour Sprays as water colours) and feathers (stencilled in bling colour paste). Love how this came out!

So, that is what I have completed so far and I hope to get to the other challenges before the deadline of midnight (AEST) Friday night! I currently have the Mixed Media challenge by Lauren and the PL challenge by Karyn on my desk! Make sure you head over here for the FB group where all the fun was and is happening and upload your entries to the correct albums for your chance to win some awesome prizes!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy scrapping!!

Some fun challenges at Shimelle.com

Hi there

A super quick post to share today with 4 12×12 pages I have created this weekend to play along with the online crop/challenges Shimelle held last weekend on her website!

There was so much inspiration and I so wanted to get all of the challenges done, but, well, life happens and I got 5 done in the 4 pages. There is still 19 hours to link up so perhaps more but time will tell!!

My 1st page is for the “Use the 1st Shimelle collection” and also for the “scrap an older photo” challenge. This photo was taken back in 2012 🙂


The next is for the “Colour blocking” challenge.

I wasn’t really sure what I was doing here but used Shimelle’s LO as inspiration and as a loose sketch. This has way less embellies than I usually use but I am really happy how it turned out – and another memory scrapped!



3rd, this is my fave <3, for the "choose a weekly challenge" challenge. I chose "scrap a selfie" and came up with this page. I love how this page turned out. I love the open "white" space. And personally, I just think it's a pretty page!!



My 4th share is for the “Use 3 photo’s on 1 page” challenge for this week – not a part of the weekend challenges!

Again, my big boy – this time his 6th birthday – which was January 2016 and some rather hilarious faces my sister managed to catch on her phone as I totally forgot to take mine!!

So, that’s it for me for now 🙂 I had so much fun playing along, I’m certain that by now those of you that follow me will notice I really enjoy playing along with challenges!!


Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!
