Stuck?! Sketches April challenge

So back again as I said I would, this time to upload my layout for the challenge over at Stuck?! Sketches.

So this was the sketch to use

and this is my take on it, I had these photo's of myself and my nephew from December 2014 and wanted to use them as I'd already scrapped a layout with my niece from the same night.
So that's it for me today, I'm outta here as I need to have a shower, wash the towels and cook dinner before heading out to bingo tonight with mum. Just hoping our backs will hold out as mum hurt her's yesterday in the garden and mines aching from cleaning at work today. Bugger
Have a great week everyone and happy creating.

Aztec challenge @ D-lish Scraps

Good afternoon

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Easter, boy I can't believe it's been and gone already just like Christmas did. So I was lucky enough to have 3 days off so I got creative on Sunday & Monday and managed to get quiet a few challenges completed.

Back to work today but thought as I finished at 1pm I'd get back into my craft room and get these finished challenges uploaded.

So this was the sketch and mood board that we had to use over at D-lish Scraps

and this is my take on it
So this is something completely out of the box for me both with colour choice and design but I don't think it turned out too bad.
That's it for me for this post, back soon with another challenge entry to upload.

Shabby Chic challenge at All Dressed Up


So here we are already in the beginning of April, boy where has it gone yet again?????

Well I've had a creative weekend this weekend, and it really helped having three days off. We've had a few family dramas over the last week but they are finally sorting them self out (I hope).

I had a wedding card ordered which had to be done before May so I thought this challenge was appropriate so I went online and purchased this beautiful Bride & Groom stamp, was a good excuse to buy a new wedding stamp too.

I will admit I like colouring wedding images as there isn't too much to do with the bride but the groom can certainly be a challenge.

This challenge is run over on their Facebook page, here is the link if you'd like to participate All Dressed Up.

So here is my card

I just love the way the colours work in this card and I generally only use pink in wedding cards as it isn't a fav of mine I'm more the blue/green/teal etc type of person.
The products I've used are
All Dress Up digi stamp
Bearly Mine Designs pp's (shop now closed)
I Am Roses flowers
Stampendous embossing powder
Robins Nest dew drops
Marianne Designs, Joy Crafts & Spellbinder Dies
Cremen Creations stamens, lace & metal photo corner
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
All Dressed Up - Shabby Chic
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
So that's it for me for this challenge, will be back shortly to upload a few more posts due to getting through some challenges, cards & scrappin.
Enjoy the rest of your Easter break.
