Circle Challenge

Over at My Creative Scrapbook this months challenge was to create a LO using circles.

I've used mainly the September LE kit.

I stitched and looped the pink ribbon circle, misted the doily then sewed on the ribbon and cut out the centre. The photo is matted on a frame cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge. The flowers are all layered and attached with Pinflair to create dimension.

I had started this yesterday but due to a power cut couldnt finish. Its amazing how much we rely on our mobile phones now. I needed my to report the fault, receive updates on the progress of the repair, the flashlight to see, texting my friend ( who kept me updated with the happenings on Strictly Come Dancing), music to lessen the intense quitness through the house and games to play on as I couldnt see to do anything else. Happily normality was restored in 3 hours, although apparently its a temporary repair and there is more work to do

Scrapstars and Sketch and Scrap

I've had a day finishing off LO's today. This one is for Sketch and Scrap on UKS. I marvel every month when I see every ones take on the sketch. This is me and my daughter and granddaughter after a lovely hack in the Lake District. We only ride together once a year and I think I'm getting too old for it now :lol:

These two LO's are from last weekends Scrapstars retreat in Leeds. It was a fab event, really well organised and with fantastic teachers. I will definitely be going again.

This one is me and my sister and is from a class taught by the very talented Rachael Elliot

This one is from a class taught by Emma Trout another very talented lady. This one was using lots of paint and mists and is of my lovely granddaughter Abby

I've still got lots more to finish as there were a total of 8 classes over the weekend
