May Counterfeit Challenge Kit and add on

May already can you believe it??  Last month I took part in the Counterfeit Challenge and had so much fun.  I didn't use all of the kit but I had a good go and I am really pleased with the LOs I produced.  I am taking part again this month as it made my scrapping so much easier.  I love it it feels as if I have all new stash when actually I just dived in my stash and pulled out things to match lol.

Here is my main kit these are the papers.  I have a mixture of Cosmo Cricket,  and Crate paper.

These are from the scrap box - October afternoon and Making Memories.

Here are some of the stickers etc.  Crate paper, October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket Letters.  I have already used some of the stickers but never mind.
Here are the embellishments I have a pot of brads, chipboard stickers, epoxy stickers, journalling cards from last months kit, SU ribbon and SU stamps.  I am using the Paper dolls dress up and Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridges. 

Here is my add on kit.  I went for a summery boyish feel.  The papers and die cut sheet are from a Me and My Big Ideas paper pack. 

I have a mixture of stamps from SU, Making Memories and Imaginisce. 

These are the extras - journalling cards SU ribbon and stamps, chipboard stickers jars of buttons. The punches are from Stampin' Up.

I am very happy with my kit and will be having a play at crop tomorrow.
Thanks for looking.

Morning it's Wednesday again so it means that crafters everywhere are showing us what's on their desks.  Here is mine this morning, can you tell I am getting ready for crop?  The kit is a Sarah's Cards Kit from a few months back.  The notebook is my scrapping bible it has all of my sketches in there, tittle's and quotes I like, card sketches etc.  The basket is some cards I have recently completed at the LSS that are waiting to be photographed and blogged.  If you have any questions about my desk please just shout.

If you would like to see everyone else's desks please pop on over to Queen Julia who started this Wednesday tradition.  Did you know it has been going for 100 weeks?!! 

Thanks for looking

Last of Counterfeit Challenge

Well this is the last of what I made of the counterfeit challenge kit this month.  I still had a quite a bit left over but I had a fab time participating and have been very productive. I made 6 Los with the kit.  This has been really good as I have completed an extra 5 LOs this month too.  Usually I scrap at crop and do do the 2 LOs for my scrapbooking classes and that's it.  I will certainly be doing it all again on the 5th!!

Anyway here is the 1st LO.  It is the boys and I Mothering Sunday after they had just bought me breakfast in bed.

This next one is myself and Hubby.  He annoys me so much but my world wouldn't go round without him.  The only photo's we have together are from 'Mess' do's and I love this photo as it was taken by my brother at Legoland.

Thank you so much for looking

Thumb Sucker

Phew another week over and wow it's been busy!  So did you watch the wedding?  Wasn't it wonderful? She looked just like a princess out of a fairytale in that dress.  I have to admit I did shed a tear watching it lol but hey I'm always a sucker for a good love story! 

Anyway This is a LO I completed last weekend but have not got around to posting.  This is my youngest son Jack who sucks his thumb all of the time!  The problem is he didn't start until just after his 4th birthday!!

I used the Counterfeit Challenge kit again.  The letters are cut out with chipboard on the Big Shot, embossed and then painted.

Thanks for looking.
