CKC challenge

"I'm on a roll Mikey!" Another lo using my CKC kit and this one is for one of their challenges as well :) This challenge was to use an idea previously saved. I cut this lo out of a magazine, I would say over a year ago & have had it pinned up on my board all that time. I look at it often & still love it (I even wrote the name of the owner so I could credit if I ever used it!)

Here is a close up...
 I love the simplicity of it & knew immediately it was time to use it as soon as I read the challenge. Here is what I came up with...

 And here they are side by side...

So thank you Colleen Bashoff from Qld & thank you all for popping by to look.
Have a great day..Jx

You are fabulous - D-Lish October challenge

I set myself a goal to finish this by the 15th & yes, I am a couple of days late but hey, I finished it! :D
Another "fabulous" JAP kit from D-Lish. They are just so much fun to play with.

This is the mood board & link...

Oh, & I used some papers from my CKC kit.
I still have plenty of bits left to play with & a photo to match so stay tuned...

Thanks for popping by & have a simply fabulous weekend..Jx

my very own mkr restaurant - Stuck?! October challenge

Well I finally have my second challenge for the month completed. This one has been sitting on my desk for a whole week! I just couldn't get time to finish it with kids on school holidays but last night was the night :)

This one is for the challenge over at Stuck?! & here is the sketch & the link...

And, I even used some more of my counterfeit kit. The coloured pp in the corners is the reverse side of the bright green in my kit as well as the other blue toned pp's. Happy days.

Thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx

@13 - Scrap 365 October challenge

Well, I did it! I was determined to finish a lo yesterday using my CKC kit & at 11.30pm I finally went to bed. I've been out today with the kiddies (school holidays) so it has taken me until now to photograph it :)
This one is for the challenge over at Scrap365. I have turned the sketch on its side...
Here is the link & the sketch...

CKC October kit

You know, each month I faithfully put together my CKC kit. I have so much fun going through my stash, finding bits & pieces and matching it all together & then I usually manage 1 layout from it! One!! Two if I'm lucky. The months just fly by before I realise it. But I still love doing it every month, so here is Octobers....

The original kit by Hey Little Magpie was chosen by Laura & the colours are just divine so I have high hopes for this kit :D

One thing I don't have a lot of is bows but I found 1 sparkly bow & have included some pink twine so I can make some.
It's quite wet & miserable here today & there is no time like the present. I have some challenges printed out & am determined to complete at least 1 lo from this kit before the day is over so off I go....
Thanks for popping by & have a great day..Jx
