Just a few challenges.....

I've had a great relaxing day, spending most of my time in my craft room. After doing heaps of housework etc yesterday, I knew today I would have to take it easy - so that's what I did. And it's def. the weather for being indoors and staying warm!

Just wanted to share some cards and scrapbook pages I've been working on since last week.

These first four are from a colour challenge set out at the Aussie Demo group I'm with:
Blue Bayou, Sage Shadow, Pumpkin Pie & Whisper White. I must say I really enjoyed this colour combo.

The first card is a cute square one, using an image from Fishy Friends. I've used my SU markers to do some watercolouring.
This is a pocket card, very simple but using some of my favourite sets - Wild about You & Wonderful Favourites.

And two 8x8 scrapbook pages. I've started an 8x8 album, as this is my favourite size to work with. The plan is to just use random photo's and hopefully get some from other people, so I can have a variety of samples to show using Stampin'Up products. It's always nice to have different pictures to work with. As much as I love scrapbooking my family, it always seems to be with the colour blue!! Maybe that will change soon........

This last layout is for a challenge over at Aussie Scrapbooking. If you love scrapbooking, this is a great site to have a look at for inspiration and challenges to be involved in. This challenge had the theme: Always on my Mind. So this is what I came up with. It's a 12x12 size and rather hard to photograph - looks so much better IRL. But you get the idea. Most products are Stampin'Up but I've gone into my stash and used a few other embellishments as well. All fun!!

That's all for now.....
