Just one more…

Posted by swewi on May 16, 2013

Just a quick post, sharing my LO for the lastest WORD challenge over at Challenge Me Happy! The word is WATER, and I had a million photos that I could have chosen for this, but I chose one of my favourite photos from our family photo shoot with Hannah in January. Just LOVE this shot!

Again, I have used AMAZING paper & embellies from Crate Paper. This time it’s mostly the Maggie Holmes collection. Hope you enjoy, and come and show us YOUR take on this challenge over at the Challenge Me Happy blog!

Challenge LO’s

Posted by swewi on May 14, 2013

(Inter)National Scrapbooking day took place on 4th of May, and lots of manufacturers, shops and blogs had challenges and competitions going on. We even did some over on the Challenge Me Happy facebook page!

I didn’t really get time to scrap that weekend, but had some me-time this weekend just past. Over at Studio Calico the challenges closed yesterday, so I had some time to enter a few of the challenges. Here are my two favourite LO’s from what I made 🙂 Hope you like!!

We have a winner!

Posted by swewi on May 9, 2013

But first – a little happy squeel for me! The LO from my previous post was highlighted as one of the challenge favourites on the Crate Paper blog. I’m stoked. So proud. Can’t help it! 🙂

And then, some sharing. First up is two LO’s that I created for Scrappin’ Patch. For the first one I have used Crate Paper “True Friends”, and for the second one I have used that line together with MME “Collectable”. Other little odds and ends too as you will see 🙂

I love Crate Paper

Posted by swewi on May 5, 2013

You might know this already. I really do have a love for everything Crate Paper. I think I have bought something from each line they have ever got out. Call me a creepy stalker, but there’s the truth for you.

I have never ever played along with their challenges before though, but LO AND BEHOLD I have now! Here’s a LO for their latest challenge. The challenge was to scrap in one chosen colour scheme, and also to collage on your page. I wasn’t sure about the whole collage thing, but I LOVE how my LO came out. Most of the products here are from the DIY line or the Maggie Holmes collection. And with a model like that on the photo, you can’t really fail 🙂
