Had a fantastic time last night @ the SBO Cyber Crop!
Couldn't believe that we managed to produce 19 layouts before 11pm - lifting someone in the gallery! Stunning work - one person - go Paula - started @ 10:30pm and was finished by 10 to 11! My Layout to the left is a lift of Moniques Layout by the same title! That photo of my children is one that I have 3 copies of - so they can have one each in their albums - I now have 2 of the 3 layouts with it done - love photos like this for challenges - makes me do something different each time.
Grumpy Bum is my layout as an example for a sand it, paint it, clothe it challenge. I cut windows for the squares of fabric (clothing it) (thanks for the fabric Ali) which I then sewed in place (thanks to having my sewing maching back after mum got it fixed). I sanded the edge of the photo with a trusty emery board (don't have finger nails & it feels good to buy these for a purpose) over the edge of my work bench. I used paint for my good old foam stamps - was a bit to hasty & put the m in the wrong place so had to cut out some cs to cover my mistake & stamp the p in place. oops!
Bingo was a laugh - Donna got tired of typing! Vicky has set a challenge of using BG, cutting photos, using hand journaling, all with a theme of 'amazing'. Cut my photos last night, now have to work out which BG to use - I'd already journaled for these photos (my system) & it had 'amazing' in the journaling! perfect. I've seen one of Vicky's last scrapper standing for effer dares & I so want to copy it, maybe just parts then & give her the credit!
Shani's challenge is going to be a mission- not! - using 4 older patterned papers of which I seem to have a number of despite giving many away a couple of months ago!
To establish winners of the store credits we are having voting open for everyone - people are checking the gallery & sending me their fave! Can't wait to see who it will be! Check the forum for more info.
Better get some thinking on for these challenges...
