WCC challenge

This is last weeks WCC challenge, scrap from the sketch
I used scrap papers for this challenge, a range of cosmo cricket and kaisercraft (I think!), Chipboard flower and bird and little embellishment i have no idea where they are from.
I took this photo when we went for a walk to Newtown nature reserve. The boat house was really old and falling apart but had a lot of charm.

New LO's

It has been a very hectic couple of weeks so I am late posting these.
This is a photo of me cooking xmas lunch. I used my new papers from Cosmo Cricket-material girl, basic grey and thicker alphas, ribbon, 7 gypsies journalling card and a journal spot that Paige gave me.

This is my husband on xmas day with the house brick I gave him. No Im not joking, that was his prezzie! Ok theres a bit more to it...I bought him an engraved brick in the wall of the stadium of light (sunderlands footie ground). As the brick can't be removed from the stadium wall I wrote the engraved message on a house brick to give him...he was confussed untill he unwrapped the certificate!
PP is making memories falala, auntie sarahs bloomers, ticket, ribbon and a journal spot printed off the computer.

This was my surprise birthday dinner my sister did for me. I have no idea what the PP is as I got it from the lovely ladies at the retreat. The title was cut on my slice.
This is my LO for the WCC challenge, use 4 photos.

Photo of my Dad and my son on Dads lambretta, before they set off for the ride out. PP and die cuts are Fancypants rough and tough, chipboard arrow, Autumn leaves talking in circles stamp and clear plastic ribbon with arrows on.

A photo from the 1st WCC retreat. PP, die cuts and stamps are october afternoon
alphas are MM, adornit and doodlebug, buttons and bloom.

This is my document 2010 mini book. I didn't want to do a whole album as my life is just not that interesting!

Front two pages

I made 12 envelopes from Kraft paper, one for each month. I am keeping some memrobilia to put in the envelopes but I am also writing a letter every month about what I have done, how I am feeling etc.
I have a page for photos, the envelope.....

...then the back of the envelope for a calender tag and another larger photo and then another page for a list of events that month.

The months were cut out on Paiges cricut

And thats all for the moment. I will be working on this weeks WCC challenge tomorrow (Paige!!) and will hopefully get it posted on the WCC blog.
If you would like to take part in the challenge pop over to our blog, link at top of page.

New Stash

I got my new Cosmo cricket papers yesterday and loved the one with the veg on! My son has an allotment with his grandad so I knew that I had this photo somewhere. Its not a great photo as it was taken by grandad (not with a scrappers eye!).
PP is Cosmo Cricket Garden variety, Journal card and stickers are October afternoon. I painted a little chipboard apple and turned it into a tomato and painted the chipboard letters and glossy accented them. I finished it off with garden string.
This is my LO for our WCC weekly challenge, scrap with us. This week was
Flowers, leaves or trees
and I have managed to use all 3.
PP is Cosmo Cricket, early bird, serendipity sunshine lollipop.October afternoon journal card, some flowers, ribbon and buttons and a chipboard tree from Riffraff.
