a few chall LO's....

this first one for
Kraft It Up...

a very cool site that sets a chall each month based on using Kraft CS as your base plus one other element. This month the other element was to use multiple photos, 4-6.
I had the perfect set, some I took of A starting the motorbike at Ma & Grans farm. Uncle T had just taught him to ride the HUGE 125 motorbike & he was soooo pleased to be able to do it!
The one rule set down by Uncle T...'if you can't start it, you can't ride it' the challenge was set & to my amazement A didn't give up & did it!!
He's been nagging me ever since to take him back to the farm so he can ride!!! Come on footy season & be finished already...the boy has other plans :0)

This next Lo is for A2Z Scraplets

Unfortunately I didn't have the right scraplet to use on my LO this month...sorry Julie...but I'm really happy with how it turned out! Used a pic of Mum & Dad ;0) looking very stylish in their 80's gear!! LOOKING GOOD!!

just one more...

LO from the SWV cyber crop...

Tarrah set a great inspiration chall & I did a LO using a scanned image of a cook book cover that my Grandma gave me, I'd wanted this cook book for a while & was very surprised to get it from her for my birthday!! I'm really happy with the LO I ended up with as I had no idea what I was going to do with it. I also included both the inscription she wrote on the inside the front cover & the letter she wrote in the card for my Birthday that year. I slide the letter inside the folded tag under my journalling.

A LO for the sketch chall set by Wendy...

I used pics of the hall table drawer which is where we hide/keep all of the takeaway menus!!
My LO done during Taryn's Mystery Chall...

she had great instructions & it was a fun class.
Belinda set a ATC chall...
We had to create a ATC with the theme in mind, post it to SWV & then
the winner will receive the full set of ATC's created by everyone who participated in her CC chall.

It was a bit of a chall to make an ATC...its been a while since I did one. It took just as long as it did to make a LO!!!! but fun all the same.
Debbie set the card chall...
which had to include...
pink/black/white colour
female form
at least one heart

something a little different....I've had that little torso for YEARS & YEARS so it was the perfect use for it!!

Out of the Hat...

Gotta get back into some challs & found the new look
Out of the Hat chall site
I've joined in on the July chall & here's my LO for the month.

Just lots of fun really, an old pic of S & I i had on the desk & decided to have some fun creating.
Gotta love that green 'lace' under the tree, got it from Blossies
& wish I had gotten more as I've already used the 2 stripes that I got on Friday!!!
Gorgeous vintage doilies, cut, coloured & made pretty!

LUCKY ME a photo....

taken by this very talented & gorgeous lady
Jill GG

Back in April when I was lucky enough to attend a class at Tarisota headquarters with Jill, Ngaire & Tamar.
Jill snapped this pic of me, I didn't notice her taking pics....was to busy laughing, creating & having a FAB time!!
Here's a Lo I scrapped using Jill's photo, I really love this pic & the way it looks, shes one talented lady....

It was a fantastic day & am soooo hopping that there is more Tarisota days to come!!
The little 'make me' tag was made by Ngaire & was attatched to a little bag of supplies for her class & the green tape measure was purchased on the day from the Tarisota store.
So Jill...thank-u so very very very much for sharing your pic with me!!
