UKS weekly challenge February week 3

Here's my page for this week's UKS challenge set by The Scrappy Cats . It really was a challenge for me ... monochrome is way out of my comfort zone. No flowers! No red! And the four letter word title was a toughie, too.V&A

We were asked to use …

  • primarily black and white
  • 3 photos
  • a 4 letter word for title

I think it all works!

Thanks for visiting.

Scrapping at Jendenink

I’ve been to Jendenink today with Jackie, and Jen and Vicky made us very welcome. I had a productive day’s scrapping and did two pages (remember I am a VERY SLOW scrapper!) but I can only show you one now as the other is a future Saturday Scrap Map challenge at CCW!

The photo was taken at the Cardinal Colours seaside retreat last year – what a crazy bunch! We had a brilliant time and I can’t wait to go again in September. This page is for the weekly challenge at UKS.

Thanks for visiting.eastbourne 2010

Littlegreen Crop Circle 5 Feb

on the pier

I had such a lovely time cropping yesterday. It was my turn to lead the class (not my favourite thing to do) but I think it went OK. I did a LO with a waterfall mechanism using a landscape photograph.

.I also scrapped this page and I’m really pleased with the flowers which I cut with the Walk in my Garden Cricut cart. The patterned papers are Echo Park, Little Girl.
