More monthly challenges for August

Miss Kym set the colour challenge to use cream, green, orange and brown - preferable the softer tones. I did a digi LO.

Megan's challenge was to make a LO without using any flowers - not a hard task for me as I don't often use flowers. We had to follow our theme and use transparencies with a red, white & blue colour scheme.

Terri set us a Denim & Lace challenge with no other criteria. I did a digi LO for this one too.

August Blind SCrap

This is the end product of our Blind Scrap. We had to use masking and glimmermist to create the frames, a swag (banner) at least 12inches long for the title & journaling in the border. We also had to make clusters with the clouds & juse 4 small embellishments.

August Cyber Crop

Last Friday we had our Cyber Crop over at AD. This month's theme was Man o' Man as it is nearing Father's Day. Challenges included making a Father's Day card, a mini album for our Dad/Hubby/Man in our life, a wallet, something for our man specifically for his man cave or office, a LO the size of a Credit Card with a family photo, laminated for His wallet and an ATC of a famous man. Here are my takes on these challenges:

GDT challenges

With the introduction of Guest Design Team members drawn from our ranks we saw some wonderful challenges emerging. This mini album challenge was set by Maree.

Next it was my turn to set the GDT challenges. The monthly challenge was to use B/W or sepia photos, cut work, 'Remember when' somewhere in the title & bling.

And for the Cyber Crop I did a digi challenge - surprise, surprise. However the LO could be totally digi, a hybrid or a fully paper LO. Requirements: 3 or more PP, layers, multiple photos, tearing & an overlay/transparency. All my digi elements were from ScrapGirls.

A bit of catch-up

I have been very slack lately when it comes ot up-dating my blog so here are a few of my latest creations.

For this challenge we were presented with a Bingo card and had to create a layout using a "line" of criteria. Mine included - a sepia photo, one brand, subtitle, an edge punch & a sketch. The LO also had to include a title & journaling. This was the sketch by Becky Fleck from Page Maps that I used.

The lovely Ann set an Inspiration challenge. We had to use paint, ink or misting. I used inking on the flowers.

Our fearless leader set us a lyric challenge using the lyrics from Angel's Lullaby by Reba McIntyre. The criteria included a photo of our beautiful children as babies, pastel colours & shabby style.

The lovely Kym set us up with another sketch challenge. This is my resulting LO. At this rate I will have a completed wedding album in no time.

Steampunk ATC Swap

At Artistic Document we recently held a Steampunk ATC swap. Not being familiar with this style of scrapping I was a bit reluctant to join in. After googling what it was all about I decided to leap outside my safe little square & have a go. This was the result. Although it has turned out okay I don't really think this is my style of scrapping but at least I had a go.
