I've actually managed to do a 12x12 LO tonight. I take part in the member's fun challenges on 3C's and Lizzie's latest is again a two-parter. First part is to do a LO of our choice and frame it. We also have to use buttons and spirelli on our LO's and decorate the frame for maximum points. I've done the LO, just have the frame to do this week-end. Then I saw a challenge on scrummystashcafe blog and realised that the two challenges go together so I decided to have a go. Here's what their post said:

Button It!!
Hehe, no I don't mean keep quiet!! Its my (Vanessa) turn to set the challenge this week and I want you to use buttons on your project. I'm turning into a button addict and they are starting to creap into almost every card or layout I do!! So, please join in and let us see how you use your buttons!Put a link to your work in the comments section below or email your image to us (link at the side) and we'll put it in the Scrummy Stash Gallery. You have until 9:00am on Saturday 8th March to get your entry in to us. A winner will be drawn at random the following week who will receive a £10 e-voucher to spend in the
shop. :)

And here's my LO of one of my sister's and I several years ago on holiday in Skegness. I used papers I've had for ages, my Xyron Personal Cutter with the alphabet that came with it and a flower shape from the Garden set for the spirelli, Dress It Up sea shell buttons (in top left corner) from charmed, yellow thread and green buttons (used for the O's) from stash.

As for Lizzie's challenge: I've done the LO and as I've said will be doing a frame this week-end, so that's part one taken care of. Part two is to use 4 pieces of card (any size) and make a Room (screen) Divider which must include Vellum and Embossing. I've done mine, I just need to photograph it which I will do when I photograph the completed framed LO.

Thanks for looking. I need to go and leave a comment on scrummystashcafe to let them know I've taken part in the challenge. Bye for now xxx
