nisa fiin jack

This was fun! while I used the cricut to cut out the little house shapes (zooballoo cart) to stick on I decided to use where they were cut from as a stencil for more houses which I used some fiber scraps walnut ink to 'stencil' in the houses! Got to use some of the new Scenic Route that arrived from Andrea today too :-) as well as some stamps from stampin up! This ends the 'dare jacks' on Scrapjacked USA! Have enjoyed the weekly jack opportunities & the inspiration they provided!

have had some other goodies arrive over the last week.... pizza box kinds & a caffeine one! the Aug Kit for SBO is gorgeous & has been a pleasure to play with.... have some other projects that I need to get on with as well as some stuff for the Scrap Of Faith September newsletter! Best get on with it.

No. 8 Wired - use your scraps

As well as the layout on NZ dares - entirely made from scraps - even the base is glued together pieces of paper...

I did this one - on a piece of acetate - it's 8.5 x 11...& uses scraps of paper, left over ribbons from kids crafts... & lettering - all from packs that I have used letters from them already!

another Jack

of Meghan Dymock... as part of the US scrap jack dare series! I used Meghan's 'words' in that I made them an obvious part of the layout - no hidden journaling! I loved the little circles on her layout & created some rough ones of my own - stamping a greener pastures stamp in them & inking them up a bit too.

Bad photo LOL - taken at night time! But I have a big day tomorrow with work & then a meeting in Dunedin tomorrow night before returning on Friday by 3 to collect the girls from school (unless I can talk J. into being able to pick them up).

Hopefully will have some scrap supplies & photos arriving in time for the weekend & I'm looking forward to some time for playing :-)

bit of an interesting take on the praise challenge - but I love the way Mr 4 is combining his love for his family & God in his homemade lyrics!

plastic bag princess

there's a book about the paper bag princess.... but I arrived home to this after an adult education class at Playcentre... can you guess that dad was doing the looking after? tooo cute :-)

is looking for their 2008 design team! I have enjoyed my briefs for each issue this year - always one for a challenge & a push & working for the Up2 team is great - & it's a home grown mag! So I dare you to get your entry together & send it in.... I never imagined I would get a call last year & as always, entered for the enjoyment of scrapping the layout & project I entered, but to my surprise I got a call from Steph not long after they were due in while at work - I was buzzing... & this could be you! Go to Up2Scrap & get entering - the info is in the latest issue too!
