3 Challenges

First of all I would like to thank you all for all of your lovely comments. It really is nice to get some feedback from fellow crafters. Todays entry is all about challenge blogs - I have entered 3! I am really loving having to do something different and thinking outside my normal crafting abilities.


This card was made for the Scrummy Stash Cafe challenge blog. The challenge this week was "Something Different." No normal shaped cards or scrapbook layouts allowed!!!! So seeing as I had a 40th birthday card to make for someone on Crafting Corner Forum I thought that I would incorporate this. The picture doesnt really show the card vary well though.

This is my very first go at a scrapbook page. I love this photo of my mum and stapdad at their wedding with all of mum's side of the family. I wanted to keep it really simple because really the photo and the title say it all. Eventually I am going to make mum a scrapbook of the family (hopefully before she decides to move to Crete!) As I have used just a small bit of ribbon on this (I usually use more!) I thought that I would enter it into the "My Time To Craft Challenge" which is ribbons this week.
Finally (for today anyway!) the "Funky Fairys Challenge Blog" this week the challenge is "going Dotty." I ordered a crop a dile and recieved it yesterday (I know I'm probably the last crafter in the country to get one!) so I used it on this ATC. I think that the paper is from Papermania and so is the paper flower.

That is a nice Scrapbook layout nice and simple. I like your ATC, I don't own a cropadile so I think I'm probably the last person to have one :)

Gorgeous. The ATC is very pretty and I love your scrap page. What an unusual card, I expect the recipient is very pleased with it. The crop-a-dial is an essential piece of kit, wouldn't be without mine now LOL xx

Thanks for joining in the Funky Fairy challenge with your dotty ATC but I have to admit: I haven't got a crop-a-dile!

Love your layout: Hate it when people kill photos with over embellishing pages and this just subtly adds to yours. Gorgeous colours too.
