Lots and lots of challenge fun!!!!

WARNING: PHOTO HEAVY!!!! You might need a cuppa!!!

This last month has seen me reducing dramatically the amount of design team commitments I have as I just felt I needed a break from "having" to create. Don't get me wrong I loved every minute of being on each and every design team but i just need a little break. This week also saw me resign from my position at Storyboard kits.( Yep I will alter my blog Crystal!!) So I now am on Scrapware and The Imagination Factory teams and am happy with that.....for now anyway!!!
So because of this free scrapping time I have been having fun participating in some of the cool challenge blogs...and its only early in the month...look out by the end of the month!!!!
So this first one is using some of the cool embellies made by Charms Creations.....
These photos of Maya were taken just before taking to the stage in her first dance concert.




 This one is using the sketch at "Show us your stuff"........ My handmade embellies are buttons made by my friend Nellie G  Designs.Yep another soccer photo and more circles. These cool circles are made by Scrapware!!!! LOVE them!!!!
 This one is for the challenge at "White with one". The challenge is to use white, pale pink and journal on the photo....
                                                        More Scrapware chippies......
 This one is for the "Scrap the Girls Challenge". The challenge is to use clips and stationery items on your page.
I love this photo with Bridgey and Tatum......miss you girls xx...and more scrapware (Ange is gonna love this post!!!)

 This is the first sketch over at " Stuck!" this month....yep another scrapware frame!!! (omg I sound like an advertisement.....I promise it wasn't planned!!!!)  PS this is a really crappy photo as my LO is quite creased and I kept getting shadows...
 And lastly a "just cos I can" layout!!!! Can you guess where the chippies from???? LOL!!!

Anyway...if you got through all of that...well done!!!!! Thanks for stopping by..
Eb xx

oh... my... goodness you do some amazing things eb!! They are all superb, but i think the WW1 is my fave! you do one colour so extraordinarily well!! ik(exactly)wym about taking the pressure off 'having' to scrap too.. same reason i have shed some commitments. Feels good to take my time with my pages and enjoy the process. It's good to know i'm not the only one 'downsizing' :)) xx

Felicity said...
