Crafteire Weekend

I had an absolutely fantastic time at Crafteire last weekend!!! A whole weekend of scrapping, chatting and not a kid in sight :)

The Friday night challenge was exactly that.. a challenge!! But I won :) :) Here is the layout I made.. I think the sweet Magnolia image is what clinched it for me, lol

And here is the prize I won.. which I adore!!!! It's an EK Success Shadowbox Coaster Set. 4 mini layouts later and I had a wonderful ornament for my sitting room :)

This is a layout from one of Annamarie's classes.. I just have to decide on a picture for it now. haha!!

And this is Karen.. sucking in half the room.... on the other hand.. I'd better not post that pic ;)

I have loads more pics to share, but not enough time at the moment!!!

Valentine, Birthday and a Challenge Card

This is the card I made for DH for Valentine's Day. It's my first attempt at a Valentine's card (and doesn't it show!! :S ) I used the new Sweet Talk papers from K & Company for this one. They are fabulous! Unfortunately the colours are quite dull in this picture as it's been very overcast all day today and photoshopping just didn't help at all.

This is another card I made on Friday night (and the pic was taken then too). My cuttlebug was dragged out and dusted off and I'm getting the last out of these birthday papers :)

And finally this card was for my PaperPlay Challenge this week. Monochrome was the criteria. I'd never done black and white before so this was definately a challenge for me. I have to say that I really do like the end result... so much so that I made 4 more of them over the weekend for my etsy store!!

I've finally been getting some spare time and I'm putting it to good use :) TFL!
