I thought I would take part in the Scrap like you mean it challenge posted by Shimelle Laine over on UKS. I am already 2 weeks behind but have been noting down the challenges in the hope I can play catch up! Here are my first four LO's.

Week one: Scrap in your favorite colour. My fav colours are purple and green. The photo is of Willow, taken by Paige. I cant remember what the purple paper is but the green spotty paper is from PM spring burst range. I used my making memories slice for the title and the swirl, stamps away stamp for the photo info and a free stamp from a magazine for the crown, Anitas ribbon and some primas and buttons. I added Willows first collar to the page as this was purple and i wanted to keep it.

Week two: Use hearts or stars. This challenge was put up on the 1st anniversary of my Grandads death. There was a small annoucement in our local paper in the in memory section that i wanted to keep so i decided to do this page. The newspaper clipping is the pull out tag behind the journalling tag (K&Co). I used PM Nostalia papers from an album kit i had. I covered a chipboard swirl and heart with the papers and sanded them and inked the edges and a chipboard letter from the kit and some brown letter stickers from another kit. There is only one heart on the page as i wanted to keep it quite simple as i feel the photo and journalling say it all.

Week three: Scrap with chipboard. This is my family playing Rock band on New Years eve. The papers are from my trusty Costco pack. The chipboard stars are Rock Star chipboard accents by Rusty Pickle. I covered the stars in the paper and inked the edges. The title is doddlebug rubons and American Thickers. I also added some PM red gems for a little bling.

Week four:Scrap from the sketch. I have changed from the sketch slightly here! The photos are from a trip to London that my Dad and me took Caleb on for his 9th birthday. The papers are Kaisercraft Skull Boi collection, the title and circle tag were made on my MM Slice. The small circle journal tag is MM and the other circle stamp is stamps away. Cant remember where i got the skull ribbon from.
