Challenges galore

I've had a crafty couple of days and managed to make a couple of LOs and cards. In doing so, I've joined in with a few challenges too.

On UKScrappers, Shimelle has started a year of challenges. Titles 'Scrap Like You Mean It', she's setting a different challenge each week. Here's my week 1 - scrap in your favourite colour. The smaller photos are passport ones and they certainly show the changing faces of me since 2005. Drag yours out and have a look at how you've changed. You may be surprised.

This LO is done for 2 challenges. On UKScrappers, the weekly challenge was a simple one to ease us into the new year gently. They challenged us to scrap a celebration using 12 of something and buttons. I've scrapped the couple I was a bridesmaid for 25 years ago at their Silver Wedding party and used 12 blooms and buttons.
Ruth's members challenge on 3C's was to use the sketch she provided, re-cycle Christmas wrapping/cards and add hand journalling. I hope the re-cycle bit's ok as I've written on the acetate window from a box of dairy and nut free chocolates I was given at Christmas.

Dottie's World challenge was set by Karen who said "Start the New Year with a Laugh" . I simply want to see "something funny" on your project, what you use and how you make it is up to you. Oh and of course you must use one of the Charmed downloads." I've used one of the pre-coloured Sarah images from Girls About Town and added the background using a programme I have on my computer. The sentiment says: He did say "Buy yourself some shoes". How was I to know he meant 1 pair? All entries get a free Scruff in the tub download.

One Stop Craft Challenge - totally missed the buttons or brads part so I can't enter the competition, but I did follow the sketch.

Sketch Saturday have a sketch competition.

Scrummy Stash Cafe have challenged us with the theme of NEW. I've used my NEW easter stamp so I hope that counts.

Thanks for looking.

Take care
Love and hugs to you all
