Kraft+ melon challenge

Happy Friday everyone. Today I am sharing my entry for the September challenge over at Kraft+.
About a month ago I was looking at my little teacup full of sequins and got an idea that I wanted to use them to make the background for a lo.


This idea has been sitting in my head just waiting for the right moment to make an appearance and today is the day :D It is not exactly as I envisioned it but when I saw this challenge I knew this was the one to at least have a first go.


How gorgeous are those colours?! I think I am going to make another lo using more colours but for the moment I am well pleased with how this turned out.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend planned and thanks for looking..Jx

Simple Pleasures - Stuck?! Sept 1st challenge

I loved this sketch over at Stuck?! the minute I saw it. So much so that I started scrapping with my CKC kit before I had even taken photos of it, and didn't even start with any mixed media medium. I may find that I add a few splashes of something in the next day or 2 but for the moment I am enjoying the clean finish.
This is the sketch & the link

Thanks for looking & have a great day..Jx

CKC September kit

I haven't joined in any blog challenges for some time but CKC is one of my fave ways to get back into the swing of things and this months kit is so gorgeous I even completed a lo before I took any photos of my :o
So doing things a little bit in reverse, here is my kit...
Here is the original...





And here is the link to Counterfeit Kit
I have included lots of papers & not many embellies which is the opposite to what I usually use most of lately but I am a little short on cards atm so am thinking that all these papers might turn into beeauutiful creations if I set my mind to it ;) My lo will be making an appearance soon.

Hope you are having a wonderful day & thanks for looking..Jx
 

Show Us Your Stuff Sept challenge

I'm on a roll Mikey...
This months challenge over at SUYS was super fun and as well as using the sketch I decided to have a go at Krisy's string & ink technique which me thinks will definately be appearing again on future projects :D
Here is the link & the sketch...

Well, back to the craft desk where my next project is half completed.
Hope you had a great day & thanks for popping by..Jx

There is this boy...Scrap the Boys

Hello there. Well I seem to be back into the swing of things (you know, dishes in the sink, beds unmade and scrapping happily :D) & this lo for Scrap the Boys came together quite nicely last night.
this months challenge is based on the following quote and has to include yourself in the photo which is rather a deal for me as I REALLY don't like being in front of the camera!

Just as a little bit of useless information I included the little #46 ephemera because my beautiful boy was born on the 4th June :)
Anyhoo, hope you are all having a wonderful day..Jx

D-Lish August challenge...just!

Well it has been an obscenely long time since my last ramble. There have been a couple of reasons for my hiatus but I am back today with a lo for the D-Lish August challenge. Hopefully I will be a little more regular from now on.
And here is the link and the mood board...

Rather gorgeous isn't it? As well as being perfect for all those boy piccies.
I am going to keep this short and sweet and keep moving tonight so hope you have had a wonderful day & God bless..Jx

May challenge @ D-Lish Scraps

Hi there, I have been so busy crocheting this month that I almost forgot to pop this lo into the challenge over at D-Lish this month. It has been sitting on my desk for almost 2 weeks!
I know I say it all the time but the JAP kits are just SOOO awesome :D
This month I set myself the challenge to try to use everything in the kit but I still didn't manage it. I think the only thing on this page that wasn't in the kit are the little wooden hearts and I did colour the muslin to make it a better colour fit to my photos but I still have plenty of leftovers.
Well, back to the crochet now (we welcomed a new grand daughter into our family on Thursday & she wasn't due for another 2 weeks, hence the frantic crocheting to get her blanket ready)
Thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx
