A cool give away and some LOs

Wow - you should check out the cool give away over at Sam's blog. Check it out to be in the running to win this.
Also - just wanted to share some more LOs. Firstly, here is one that I did for the May Top50 monthly challenges, had a lot of fun doing this is a LO of all the colours and swatches (or representations of) everything in the new house. I really like how it turned out.

Next is a LO I did with the May kit from my local LSS, Scrapville. This is actually the second LO I have done with this kit and I still have heaps of product left. I love how this LO turned out.

This is a close up of the cool little apple I made....thought I would try something completly original (if it has been done by anyone else I haven't seen it) and I really like how it turned out...and it was so easy to do!

Next is the first challenge for the May CC over at Top50, "Lights, Camera, Action". In this challenge we had to do a LO based on a movie poster of one of our favourite movies and it had to me smaller than 12 x12.

This is the poster I chose - from one of my all time favourite movies "The Slipper and The Rose". As a side note, if you are a romantic soul and don't mind singing and dancing in a movie, then this is the perfect movie for you. It is the story of Cinderella in a way you have never seen before. I recommend you grab a wine and a blanket, turn up the TV loud and be wisked away into a world of make believe. Anyways - I digress.

I was, of course, inspired by the LO of the poster and used it as a kind of sketch, but there are several other elements in the LO that are not quite so obvious. I tried masking around the photo and papers to imitate the look of the flourishes in the poster (OK - you can't really see it, but I tried none-the-less). The title was also inspired by the theme of the movie and the flowers by the title. This was a really quick LO and I really like how it turned out.

Well, that is it for tonight. I will have more to share by the end of the week I hope as the challenges for this months CC at Top50 are awesome - you should go check them out. I have done 1 and really want to get the other 3 done.

Hugs to everyone...MWAH

I am still here....

I am still here, just busy with the house and all......sooooo close now. They are thinking in about 2 weeks we will be finally moving in. *waiting, waiting, waiting*. Firstly a pic from Easter that I took and am yet to scrap. Don't you love it? OK - maybe not - but I think it is adorable.
OK - enough of the over proud Mummy act. I also wanted to show you some stuff I have been doing. You may remember from my last post I was a guest DT at the Top50 site. My second LO in that role was based on the CC 'Reflections'. This was my example LO. I love how it turned out.

This next LO was to use a reflective material in the LO among other things. I used foil on the crown (just in case you hadn't noticed!). I am not overly thrilled with this LO, something is missing - but I don't hate it either.

Next we had to do a heritage based LO. I chose to scrap this photo of my Grandparents wedding. Still trying to work out why they used such a black backround? It makes my Grandfather and his Groomsman seem to disappear - but boy - don't the gals look great?
Unfortuantly - that was all I could manage for the crop, but I did manage to get the monthly challenges done....
This first one we had to use an imperfect photo and use a smaller size in our LO. I like how this turned out.
This next one had a few criteria, and I have met them all. I LOVE how this LO turned out.
These are some little embellies I made for the April Embellishment swap. I think they came up pretty good. The photo in this is a Redant original - one day when I become known for my amazing photography, you can tell everyone you knew me when......
Next are these adorable flowers that I made. How cute huh? If you go to the Top 50 site, you can find the link to how to make them.

I have also just completed a LO for my LSS Scrapville. My LO isn't up yet, but will be soon. I really like how it came together.

Janet, the boss lady over at Scrapville, has some of the most amazing monthly kits, so if you are interested, go and check them out. This months kit is just awesome and I have already created one LO with it (which I can't show right now) and I already have a second LO planned for it!. If you are interested in this months kit, this LO by Melinda can be made with it. Don't you just adore it?

I almost forgot to mention - the Scrapbooking Top 50 is looking for a new DT member here. I know there are a few of you out there who would be perfect for the job, so why not give it a go.

Anyways - better go now...lots of things to do. Hugs to everyone.
