Elsie's challenge was: Create a ribbon cluster. Ribbons are beautiful accents on a page - no matter what! But why not take the next step? Challenge yourself to create an accent with a cluster of ribbons. Just tie two three, four or more ribbons and cluster them together, weave them through an embroidered boarder, or hook a tiny safety pin through them. Elsie Flannigan
The House Challenge was: To create a LO on the theme of family and use chipboard embellishment(s)

Take an Artistic Photograph. Its easy to capture photographs of family and events. But for this challenge, I want you to look through the lens of your camera as a photo enthusiast. Take a closer glanceat things in your life that you might otherwise walk on by. Look for beauty in unexpected places, inside and outside of your home! Elsie Flannigan.
I took some photos of my garden about a month ago and put a few on here. The one most people commented on was the stones, so I decided to scrap a photo of them. I've done this on green Bazzill to represent the green jig-roll you can get. I used a paper jigsaw template I printed to emboss round so I could hand-cut the photo. I've started the jigsaw off, it just needs someone to come and finish it now!
The embossing round the edges of the bazzill are done free-hand. I'm not sure what I think of my handwriting on this (and no, I'm not looking for compliments, I'm really not sure if I like it). But, it's done and it's how it's going to stay.
Group four photos. I love creating one-photo layouts, but sometimes I have more than one photograph to feature on a page. I like to take four (or more) photographs and cluster them together in a group. This makes them appear almost as one large focal-point photo but allows me to display more images at one time. Try it.

Mum and I went ten-pin bowling while we were on holiday last year, so this challenge was a perfect way to show one of the games we had.
