Guest designer for CKC

When Jemma asked me to be a guest designer for CKC this month I was really excited. I had been a bit quiet on the scrapping front as have been doing a lot of crocheting lately and I thought this is just what I need to get back into my scrapbooking. YAY :)
I headed straight to my craft room and then realised why it had been a while:(
 I couldn't even sit down...


A couple of weeks ago I found a blank canvas and decided to make something of it. Problem is I don't really know what so this has just been sitting there waiting for inspiration to hit & taking up my entire desk in the process. Time for a BIG clean up. I even shouted myself a brand new craft mat for the occassion. The old one was well over 10 years old, they are definately worth it. I decided to ease myself back into it by starting with some cards (I can't show you those yet as they are for the blog hop) but boy oh boy, once I started there was no stopping me! I finished 3, yep you read that right, a big 3 layouts in ONE day. Ok so the dishes didn't get done but the beds were made.
So to get things started we had a super choice of three kits to base our conterfeit on. The originals were from Quirky Kits & are shown here. I ended up combining a few elements from each & because the first kit was called "It's a party" & I was a wee bit excited to be guest designer and scrapping again, I called my kit "Party @ my place". And here it is...

I find I dont scrap with a lot of papers anymore so concentrated on more embellie elements.
Well I better stop there so you have time to move onto the other designers. Here is the link to get to Just Jimjams and also back to CKC.
Have a wonderful day and hope you will pop back on the 6th for my first reveal..Jx

  2. What a great creative space you have! So glad you rolled up your sleeves & "got 'er done". I find that visiting my stash every month for my CKC kit keeps me inspired, and your lovely little kit was indeed inspiring if you made three pages right away :D Can't wait to see, and so thrilled to have you on the Team this month.
