Melbourne LO

I really liked the sketch challenge for Challenge Heaven this month and knew right away which photos I wanted to use. As often happens however I had trouble finding enough time to complete the LO, so here it is finally finished on the last day of the month. :) I'm always happy when I get to use papers which have been in my stash for ages and I got to use TWO old ones on this LO! I don't normally do mixed alpha titles, however I had spelled out all of 'Melbourne' except for the M before realising I'd already used the M on another LO. Pretty happy with the end result.

I should be back later today with some ATC's as well. :)

All Dressed Up LO

So Bridgette's blog whispers is finally complete and I can upload my LO. I've just seen what the original LO looked like over at Bridge's site and OMG it changed by the time it go to me. Anyway, if you want to see the original and the list of who participated, check out Scrappin' Bridge. If you're following on a blog-hop and want to go to the next website, check out Leanne's blog.

While I wasn't expecting the whole process to take so long it was certainly a lot of fun and I ended up with a LO I really like. I created those two bushy purple flowers myself using a scalloped punch and purple glimmer mist. Photos are from my friend's wedding where I was a bridesmaid.

Blog Whispers Sneak Peak

I'm taking part in Bridge's blog whisper game, which is like chinese whispers except with scrapbooking LO's. I was sent Belinda's version of the LO and have created mine which I will be sending on to Leanne. Once everyone has completed a LO Bridge will post them on her website and we can see how it changed as it was passed along. I have to say, I really like the end result of this LO so I can't wait to show it to you.

Happy Birthday LO - Mike's 20th

Continuing my trend of completing birthday LO's WAY after they actually occured (my brother actually just turned 21 last month), this LO shows Michael's 20th birthday and is a Challenge Heaven entry. This is for the themed challenge, theme was birthday and it had to have a photo with the cake. I went with hidden journalling on this one as it's already looking crowded enough. The cake photo actually opens up and the writing is on the blue paper.

I'm aware the photos themselves look silly. I missed capturing all the 'moments' so my siblings kindly agreed to re-stage them for however their acting ability is questionable. :P

Quiet Time LO

It's a new month so there are a whole heap of new challenges out. I normally look at a few different sites but only end up doing the Challenge Heaven ones. This month though the sketch over a Stuck?! got into my head and I had to create it. The LO I ended up with is nothing like what I was originally going to do (I wanted to do my trip to the Zoo with my dad!), but I'm fairly happy with the result. Bit concerned it's too simple though so let me know if you have suggestions for improvements.

Photos by Daniel Sheehan, who will be our wedding photographer.

And here is the sketch:
