I havent updated my blog in a while, and there's been no reason apart from pure laziness!
I have a few full layouts I can share, and a couple of sneaks too.
Over at Enchanted there is a great competition running which is based upon Christmas Carols, the layouts however do not have to be Christmas themed.
Here is my entry for round one; we had to use the carol "All I want for Christmas (is my two front teeth)" as our inspiration, the words "all I want" had to appear either in the title or journalling, and we had to use two photos.
I chose to go with what I want for my beautiful Lily (the cj that I did the week before gave me the inspiration).
I also managed to complete another one of the monthly challenges, this time we had to take inspiration from the book Animalia by Graeme Base
Here's the cover:
And my take on the challenge:
I was inspired by the frame of little pictures around the border of the cover, so I made some inchies (really I just covered some chipboard with some patterned paper) and layered my photo over the top.
I love this photo of Lily, she is a real 'little mummy' to all her babies (they arent dollies) and takes at least one with her wherever she goes.
I have also managed to do the first Stuck?! sketch for the month of November: This was just using a combination of some stuff leftover from a What is Old is New kit, and a small kit I picked up from LSS a couple of months ago. I am determined to get through all the kits I keep buying and using for one layout and then not touching them again.
And here are a couple of sneakies, just because I know how much everyone loves a good sneakie!!
This one you will be able to see tomorrow on the Butterfly Crafts blog, and Ning site.
Another finally the last sneakie will be up on the Scraps of Us site, towards the end of the month (around the 20th I think). Blogger has decided that this one looks much better on it's side, and after trying to upload it the correct way a couple of times, I am going to agree with blogger - just this one time!
