New challenge

I have been scrapping so much lately, but it's mostly for DT/CT committments. One that I can show you though is my first LO as part of the BITW DT :) The new challenge is on the blog now and all you have to do is use the word "FOREVER" in a LO. Easy peasy :) Here's what I did with it

I thought this photo was VERY appropriate for the word forever. Not a day goes by when I'm not doing some sort of ironing or washing *grrr*.

I have used the fabulous "He's Savvy" kit from Scrapbook Savvy for this LO as well as a few bits and pieces for my stash.

So make sure you head on over to Bird is the Word and come play along. Would love to see everyone's creations :)

I also have one other LO to share. This one is for Scrap the Boys. The challenge was to use a photo and be inspired by the clothing.

I have taken inspiration from the blue in Aidan's top. The background was inspired by the very talented Nic Pomeroy (love her work). I've used a very old transparent alpha, stuck it down and painted over it.

Not overly happy with it, but it's another one done ;)

Have a few more to share this week, as well as another round of LOs to scrap :) It's school hols here in Melbourne now so I plan on cooking as well (or should I say cake baking haha), and hoping to get the boys out of the house this week, just to break up the wrestling and fighting that goes on !!

Well, best go and get cracking. Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments. I just love reading all of them. I'm going to be getting around to everyone's blogs today and leaving some love for you all :)

Have a great one
