Sketch and Scrap second Challenge for January
you & me
All of our babies are beautiful for this page I decided to scrap my beautiful
babies when they were young. The photo on the left is our daughter Sue and myself
in 1973 and the picture on the right our son Steven and myself taken in 1964.
I used C M paper and embellishments, the page needed a border to lift the
colour and the strip down the left was made using the C M border maker. To
finish leaves cut on cuttlebug and title on cricut and finally flowers.

Picture This Challenge
Another fun challenge from Picture This I just love mixed media.
On white card I painted gesso then a stencil with texture paste. Next I
used L S G copper brown and pines olive applied over my stencil then
used two stamps and flicked hogs wart orange on my page. A strip of
Kaisercraft paper down one side and backed my photo. Cut the pattern behind
the photo on Cricut then I made my flowers by spraying them with the
L S G paint I also sprayed some gauze to place behind the flowers.
To finish glass glitter in velvet and cut a title.

Kraft + January Challenge
I Love my Bike
This Craft + Challenge took me back to 1975. Our little daughter loved her
3 wheeler bike. During winter she rode it round and round the kitchen table
clock wise all day, when she got off the bike the front wheel would lean to the right.
I made a blue border for my craft paper and used coco vanilla paper inked
with Tim Holtz faded jeans. I used my favourite ink blot stamp and made a
few stars, used some washi tape cut a bike on cuttlebug and the title on
Cricut when I was a Kid.
