pecking with the chooks

I’ve had a busy weekend – yesterday I went to Chook Scraps’ Midnight Madness (only stayed til 5:30pm cos we had to go to friends’ for dinner) and I was getting into the Chook Scraps’ CyberCrop Challenges.  I’m not usually a shabby chic type of girl but I really love those Webster papers and they seemed perfect for the challenges (which were all based on a Shakespearean theme).  Here’s what I came up with…

Challenge One asked for lace, ruffles/pleating, a circle and hand stitching.

The second challenged asked for an animal or tree, a heart, 2 photos and a black element not including text or doodling.

This was my take on challenge three which was a sketch challenge.

The final challenge was to make a card which was vintage style, paper with writing on and a button. I love this challenge so much I made a few more cards.

Three of the cards I made when I was on a roll 🙂

More cards 🙂

Last week I did one of the challenges in the Little Scrapbooking Shop Cybercrop.  I would have liked to do more but on Saturday afternoon I sliced my index finger open on the food process blade and had to get my friend Karen to take me to hospital to get patched up and it was way too tended to do too much (one page was all I could manage!!!)

This was a challenge to scrap a creature - so I had a little photo shoot with our fur-girl.

no longer a bfz (aka blog-free zone)

Well, I’ve been horribly slack with this blog of late (well, for quite a long time).  We’ve been on holiday to England for 4 weeks and I’ve started a new job! My first ever full-time job that isn’t teaching!  I’m now the Coordinator of our local Telecentre (Community, Health and Techology Resource Centre).  It is a complete change of scene and I’m loving it (well, only been there 6 days so still have lots to learn but it’s a great place to work).

Scrapping-wise I haven’t done much lately as we’ve been overseas – which was excellent – but I do have some projects on the go.  Firstly I’ve started (well, printed some photos for) an album featuring our holiday to England.  I’m also going to participate in the Little Scrapbook Shop’s 2010 by the Month – currently trying to organise what I’m going to do for my January page – I definitely need to take more photos in February!!!!  I’m also really excited about the LSBS’s 2010 weekly challenge program (previously 52 Pick Up) which was unveiled last Sunday – it’s the Seasoned Scrapper…

I’m definitely keen to get into these challenges as I really loved doing 52 Pick Up (and I’m proud to say I did it 52 times in 2009). Anyway, hopefully my next post will have some pix of scrapping I have finally got around too.

Finally, and most importantly, Happy Australia Day!  We had a lovely morning at the beautiful Lake Towerinning for a community bbq breakfast.
