NSD Challenges

Thought I'd post the LOs I managed for the WeScrap Crop - I only managed another two but that's something..oh, and I also made two tags that fit one of the May Challenges too.

This first one is a colour challenge (and also the May Challenge for Scrap Club - I rotated the sketch :)).
Photos are from 1996 and DS's b'day trip to  Legoland.
I used the May "Fun House" kit (papers are by Echo Park), ribbons from stash and a bingo number from the old game I found at Dad's. Title by Me and My Big Ideas.

For the second LO we were challenged to use our favourite embellishments - buttons in my case.
The photo is of my Mum (note the "look" again!) and aunt c. 1933.

For this one I used the April "Whimsy" kit (papers and stickers by Girls Paperie).
The "j" is for their names - Mum was June and my Aunt is Jean.
Buttons are from the kit and  my Mum's old button box. There should be 4 blue ducks but one literally flew across the room when I was snapping the post off.
The Tatty Teddy is an old phone charm.

And finally the tags. The challenge was to use "tape" on your project.

 The tag on the left is made from packaging - corrugated card and the paper from some TH goodies. I used some of his tape down one side.
The other tag is made up of lots of bits and pieces on a Kraft tag. There are two different tapes as a border on the bottom - can't remember the make (poss. 7 Gypsies?) as I had to unpack them to store them.

Thanks for visiting.
Hugs xx

Goodness Susie - you have been busy! I love all your work and especially the tags.

Hope you're enjoying your duvet day.

There I was proud of myself for doing one layout and you have done two!!! And they are both wonderful! I love the fun, colourful Legoland one, but I really love the pink and girly one.

Hugs and sparkles for your poorly shoulder

Fun happy LO of Legoland, happy memories. I like the girlie-ness of the sisters LO, too. I'm lovin' the tape on those tags.

You've been very busy, Sue!

On mass catch up and looking at your gorgeous layout and then spotted my tag - it's even more beautiful in real life! I'm loving the hands - honestly out of this world - just need to work out how to use them!
