What Cricket? - Purple Pumpkin January challenge

Hello again. Back today with my lo for the challenge over at purple pumpkin. I don't normally do much journalling (if any!) on my lo's. The usual excuse, handwriting, & also because it is the last thing I do I am always afraid I will stuff up my lo but I am pleased I decided to add it today and am even happy with the final result...
 Here is the sketch, which I have flipped over & the link...

And then there was you... - D-Lish "lilac haze" challenge

Well, after my great start to the year, we had friends come to stay & I slowed right down but am determined not to stop. The good news is that my D-Lish goodies arrived and I have had a lot of fun putting this lo together for their challenge this month with the most gorgeous colours. After 4 boys, my husband's little princess arrived and while she may not be the most elegant princess, she certainly lights up all our lives!

 The theme is "lilac haze" & this is the mood board & the link...
Beautiful right? 
Anyhoo, thanks for popping by & have a great day...Jx

First offering for CKC - You Are So Beautiful

So here it is, my first lo for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge. Wow, I can't believe I am posting twice in one day! I love holidays :))
And here is she holding her photo :) ...
I'm usually snipping doilies & stencilling or misting lately but I have really enjoyed just leaving this quite simple & graphic in design, even the whole doilly!
Thanks for popping by....Jx 


Counterfeit Kit Challenge - January kit

So, this is the first time I have joined in this challenge even though I have been following it for a while. I haven't been too sure how to do it so hope I am doing it right! I put together my kit last night & the scary thing is that I didn't even finish going through B & I had about 20 papers to choose from! (I keep my papers in alphabetical order by manufacturer) 
So here is the CKC kit & link...

And here is my kit...
 I think I have 12 papers, some spots, some stripes & some snow flakes, a christmas stamp set & a stamp set with some stars. Doilies, chip, pins, flowers, arrows, stars & buttons. I even have my first lo planned for the subway art challenge so will hopefully be back soon with my first share.
Hope you are having a great day..Jx

My Guy - Scrapfriends Colour Challenge

Hello for the first time in 2014 :) 
I woke up yesterday thinking "start as you mean to continue" so - for the moment at least! - I am firing and have my first share for the new year. (I actually finished last night but the light was too bad to take a photo) 
This is for the colour challenge over at Scrapfriends, one of my most favourite challenge sites...

 ...And this is the colour swatch.

Well, back to my next lo. Just waiting for the paint to dry....literally :D
Thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx
