End of the month..a few more challenges down

The End of the month usually sees me pumping at the last few challenges that take my fancy, and August is no exception.

Finally Finished this months STUCK?! sketch



And I also managed to the Savvy ABC challenge done. Using the letter ‘B’ with buttons and bling



And finally, my example for the CYBERCROP challenge over at Enchanted Scrapbooking. I set the challenge to use your oldest scrapbook product in a new and creative way

Lisa's Challenge;
Using the letters NEW - N can be netting, numbers, etc E for Embellishment, edged border etc and W for white, etc....and in addition try and use one of your NEWEST scrapping products in addition.....

Here I have used a pack that I received from Sherry Mendoza, and have N=numbers, E=eyelets and W=wings

Vicki's Challenge;
scraplift this layout and use a NEW PRODUCT that they have never used before on the layout!

Vicki chose my layout below as the one to SCRAPLIFT.
Tracey's Challenge;
Create a layout that is about a "New Beginning" - this could be a recent move, a birth, a wedding ...... something in your life that you have just started or have had happen. Extra criteria, use the word new on your layout somewhere and a new technique that you haven't used before.

Now you can see what happens at a retreat when you are uninterrupted from your creative mojo, and can scrap when you like, for as long as you like.

I managed to get 15 layouts done in the 3 days. I can share some now, but some will have to wait til the next few months when I can reveal them fro CT/DT commitments.

STUCK?! Sketch for the 1st August
