Some cybercrop entries

My scrapping mojo has been very up and down lately. I have hardly done any scrapping in the last week but did manage these layouts the week before.
Wicked Princesses
I entered a couple of challenges in the recent Wicked Princesses cybercrop.

This first one was based on a sketch. We also had to use the colour of party food as an inspiration. I choose fairy bread - white with bright colours. This is another layout with Bo Bunny Popsicle.

My second layout was for Kayla's challenge, which had to be a birthday page and include Bling. I have been wanting to scrap this photo from Eleanor's birthday party last year for ages and when I saw the new Fancy Pants Dancing Girl pp, I knew it would go with this photo. I'm pleased to say this layout won the challenge and was in their newsletter.

Scrapbooking Top 50
Over at Scrapbooking Top 50 they have been having a retro cybercrop. I managed to get 4 challenges done this month after bombing out the last couple of months.
First challenge was based on the 80's. Had to use bright colours, a fashion theme, tearing, lace and staples. I decided to scrap about some shoes Eleanor has seen at the weekend. I bought them during the week for her for Christmas so hope she doesn't see this!

The second challenge was based on the 70's - hand decorated white cardstock, bling and a minimalist approach. I glimmer misted the cardstock.

The next challenge I tackled was No. 5 based on which was base on criteria we had selected via pictures. I drew - sting, an altered photo, ledger background paper and bling.

Finally, I did Challenge 6 based on the how time flies. We had to use bright colours, circles, title and subtitle, bling and the creation had to be either a double layout or OTP or mini album and show a time line. I chose to do a selection of photos of Eleanor from 1-10. Not sure it turned out quite how I would have liked but I suppose it shows what I want it to do.

I've been busy

Unfortunately, not scrapping. I've been doing some extra days work and weekends seem to have been busy too. However, I do have a few pages and cards to show .

First up is for Sue's Top 50 scrapbooking monthly challenge. We had to use at least 2 shades of blue, a black and white photo, chipboard and buttons.

I have done a couple of challenges for TSE's October Cybercrop. First is a card for Jaimee's challenge which had to be either pink or blue, use animals, a shaped button and repeated words. The paper for this is some I picked up on our holiday in Perth at Riot. Was very cheap but great for cutting up.

Ngaire's challenge was to use green, a tag, a frame and to try and scrap about the wonder of discovery of children. I used a piece of Prima pp and some flowers that I recently received in a giveaway I won from the very generous Janine Koczwara.

Next up is my entry for the first week of Scrapper of Oz over at Scrapbiz. Our criteria were to create a layout about somebodies dream/hopes, create a scene, use all the colours of the rainbow and an element of movement. Normally, this is the sort of layout I would shy away from but I wanted to do something different and ended up really enjoying putting it all together. I have used bits and pieces from a lot of different manufacturers - Sass lass, Crate Paper, MME, Prima, Maya Rd, and My Little Shoebox.

This one is for Sara's October Random Challenge over at Scrapbook Savvy. The criteria were to use a photo larger than 6 x 4, at least 3 different patterned paper and a rubon. I used Sassafras Lass Me Likey.

Finally, this is the layout I did for my guest DT spot at Out of the Hat last month.
