June Blind Scrap

This was a part of our June cyber crop. Blind scraps are so much fun.
I have used Kaiser Off Shore papers for this LO of my father & my husband overlooking the ocean at Point Danger.

June Cyber Crop

Last Friday we had another fantastic night of cyber cropping, fun & lots of games over at Artistic Document. The theme for the night was "Games". We played Bingo, had a treasure hunt, a guessing game & lucky numbers. Loads of laughs as usual. The challenges flowed.

Toni's challenge was based on the Game of Life.
-- use the word LIFE in your title
-- use a series of photos that show a progression
-- use either pink or blue as your main colour (you can use any other colours you like)
This is what I came up with. It is a digital LO using Kaiser Tag This papers. Here is my take on the challenge - my grandson learning to climb the equipment at the park.

Terri's challenge was based on Snakes and Ladders a game based on ups and downs!
1. at least 3 arrows - representing ups and downs
2. 6 squares - the maximum spaces that you can move
3. Number/s in the title
My grandson was fascinated with the stairs at the back of our house when he came to visit. he lives in a lowset home with no stairs.

Kym's challenge:
*take inspiration from a game or puzzle
(i have used puzzle pieces)
ie: scrabble (letters on blocks)
crossword puzzles
checkers (checkered pp)
playing cards, ETC!!!
*and/or use bits and pieces from an old
board game, etc...
*use three or more colours...
So for this one I used a large playing card that I had in my stash (thanks Marie it came in handy) and a photo of aone of the showgirls encountered on our trip to Las Vegas

Megan challenged us to remember -
So just how far back can you remember? Or what is your favourite memory as a child?
To complete the challenge you need to include pictures, or photos, journaling, distressing and inking - the last two can be optional!
My memories go way back to spending time at the Gold Coast where my grandparents lived. We spent weekends & holidays at their home.

June Challenges

Well I have managed to get a couple more of the June challenges done. Then we have Cybercrop on Friday night. Yay. Can't wait! We always have so much fun on these nights.

Terri's challenge was to to create a LO made using predominately patterened paper.
MINIMAL other embellishment are allowed. The title must be from PP also.

Marie set an inspirational challenge - an all white picture depicting and using the words 'a new leaf'. This is my inspired layout.

Just one more to go and that is Megan's challenge. I have started working on this one but just have to refine it a bit before sticking it down.

Queen's Birthday Weekend

I must apologise for being so slack of late.I have been snowed under with work. It's that time of the year again - student reporting. I have been off to several PD's in the last month and have another to go to next week. So it has been difficult to get everything done.
I have managed to do three LO's this week and am happy with the results. They all centre around the gorgeous grandbabies.
