Beccy's Challenge May 2013 - Anything Goes

Here is my entry for Beccy's Place May challenge.  I originally made this for the April challenge but forgot to post and enter it  so as May's challenge is anything goes this will work too.  The image is called Full Bloom and is perfect for layering up, as you can see on the 2nd picture.  The decoupage is about 2cm high. The image was coloured with copics and promarkers and then scanned and printed so I could layer them up.  The base card was embossed and coloured with DI and the mat was cut with a Nelly C die.

Crafting When We Can Challenges 43 - Personalise It

A very quick post today.  MY OH has decide to update my laptop and now I can't find anything.

Sassy Studio Designs are sponsoring us again for this Challenge and I chose Little Honeys - Cinderella Honey

I made a scrapbook page on CraftArtist (half my digikits are still missing) but I printed out and coloured the image with Copics and Promarkers then scanned it back into CA and added it to my page.

Hop over to Crafting When We Can Challenges and let's see your personalised projects.

Crafting When We Can Challenges #42 - At the Movies.

The Challenge over at CWWCC is At the Movies.  Sara from Sassy Studio Designs let us choose our own image for this challenge. I chose Mistress of the Night. I love the Elvira movie Mistress of the Dark, I think it's really funny.

The backing papers are from Creative Cottage and the shape is from CraftArtist.  The spider is from a digikit Halloween 2011 (a free kit I do believe).  The sentiment was cut out with a spellbinder die.  The image was coloured using copic markers, the bling was from Poundland.  Card from stash.

CraftnDen ATC swap March - bit late...

Because of life I'm a little late with my March ATC swap for Craft Den but I will be taking them down to Lynne on Tuesday.  If you want to join in hop over and see what the theme will be for April or even better become a follower of Lynne's blog and you'll never miss them or any of the wonderful classes she runs.

The theme for March was Birds of a feather. I was going to go with flying birds but I decided to go with the colloquial ones instead and add feathers.  All 5 are the same.  I've used an image from Dezinaworld and feathers from an old boa.  The stamp is from a set that came with a magazine, inked with DI.  The little pearl is from Home Bargains.

Hope you're having a great weekend.  Weather not too bad in Sheffield today.  Half past 7   in the evening and I'm sat looking a blue sky with scattered clouds.  Spring may just be arriving and about time too.

Shouldn't eat, won't eat...

I'm on holiday this week and so thought it would be a great time to get back to my healthier eating plan.  Before Christmas I lost 7lbs in weight but managed to do so much more with controlling my type 2 diabetes and blood pressure.   I managed to have 1 of my tablets taken away and my blood pressure was the lowest it had been for nearly 10 years.  Over Christmas I indulged myself but didn't go overboard but then I had some stress at work and the eating started again.  I am overdue to go back to see my nurse and I can tell that my blood sugars etc are not going to be very good.  So I have decided that this holiday would be a great time to start again and hopefully I will get back to where I was or better.  

Anyhoo the reason I am posting today is to show a digital scrapbook page I made using Vintaj Victorian Garden in CraftArtist instead of raiding the fridge/crisp bag.  I really everything about this page. I even worked out a way to put a shadow in the aperture that didn't hang over the border at the side. Woo Hoo love CraftArtist 2.
