All caught up and more

I am all caught up with SLYMI and i might even post this weeks LO in the gallery on UKS as i am quite pleased with it. I recieved the SA kit before i was eliminated so that has become all mine, just to play with!! It was the new We R Memory Keepers papers, rubons, chipboard, trims and flowers and some lovely glittery doodlebug alphas, a really great kit this time, typical!!!

WK 20- Use pen. This is a photo of my two kids up on Brading downs on mothers day. Papers are Fancy Pants on a whimsy/fresh air. I used whispers brush markers to doodle and colour in. The chipboard shapes are from the papermill shop and i used acrylic paint, anitas 3d gloss and crackle glaze on them. I cant make up my mind on this LO, some days i like it and some days i dont!!

WK 21-Scrap a song title. Not that impressed with this one, I did it at our monthly crop and sometimes i find it hard to produce anything good there as i am always chatting with everyone!! I think the papers are by PM. My friend Paige took this photo of my dog Willow, running around on ventnor downs, her feet are not even touching the ground!!

Wk 22-Scrap from the sketch. The sketch was extremely minimal so i have added a bit more to my LO! The paper is Daisy Bucket/playlist, chipboard by rusty pickle and stamps by little yellow bicycle, borrowed from Paige. I love these photos of my son (also taken by paige!). I find it very hard to get natural pictures of my kids because as soon as i point a camera their way they both go into pose mode!

WK 23-Scrap a self portrait. As you can see from the photos i found it very hard to take a self portrait!! None of the photos were any good so i decided to scrap the crap and make that the theme of my LO! The Papers, flowers, journal spot and trim are from the SA kit, We R Memory Keepers Tiffanys range. The chipboard flower is rusty pickle and i painted it with acrylics and used 3d gloss on it. I love this paper kit and am pleased i got to do what i want with it!!

And i actually got two more LO's done this weekend. This is using the We R Memory Keepers kit again and is about me and my son. I was looking at the cliff face and said to Caleb, oh look at all the pretty colours, to which he replied, mum thats called strata!! It comes to something when your 12 yr old knows more than you do!!

This is a LO of my husband. The papers are Imaginisce and i have used Fancy Pants rub ons, little chipboard birds from RiffRaff, painted with acrylic paint and pearly glaze, MM journal tag, prima flower and doodlebug alphas. I have been waiting to use this paper for ages but never seem to be able to get a photo of my husband!! I love the little chipboard birds, i may have to order some more of those!

Well i am all caught up now so im off to have some lunch and maybe watch a little twilight..again!!

Well I have been voted out of the Scrapbook Apprentice competition, so thats it folks! It was fun while it lasted but I must admit it will be nice to scrap something and not worry about criteria and write ups and supplies lists and whether its good enough! Back to scrapping just for me and if its rubbish its only me that has to look at it!
There were some really talented scrappers in the competition so i feel that it was a very big achievement to get through six months when I thought I would be the first one out, and I would like to thank everyone who voted for THANKS x
