Blind Scrap LO

I ran my first........and possibly my last!!....blind scrap on Sunday night.
Things went a little pear shaped near the end, but that's all part of the fun I suppose.
I will blame the drinks that were served and the fireman!! (Sigh)Fan me down LOL!!
I have lifted this LO and have offered up a RAK to the first girl who can tell me from where.

This week we want you to create an animation inspired layout using the following criteria
1. Cartoon/comicbook style

Year In Review

Over at WOIN they are running a year long competition.
One LO per month about something that happened in the previous month.
There are monthly prizes and if you complete all 12 months you have a chance to win the major prize of a six month subscription to one of their wonderful kits
Every LO must include a photo, journalling and a calendar.
In my wisdom I thought I'll do 6 x 12 LO.....nice and easy. Boy was I wrong!!! I'm struggling with this size but hopefully by the end of the year I'll have a handle on it.
Here is my not so darling dog. Got home to a bomb site last night. The clever thing tore the flyscreen of DS bedroom widow and worked the window open (no it wasn't closed properly DS had it open!!!) and she got in and trashed the house. Loo paper, shreaded clothing and just generally a big bloody mess - including poop on my bed eeewwww. Luckily my precious scrap supplies remained unscathed. Roll on scrap room..................



Magical Mystery Tour - week 2

Bit slack in posting but anyways...........
This week the girls on the MMT are toning it down and going .....

The criteria theis week
1.Black, white/cream - will allow minimal touches of other colours
2. Music sheets - will allow music stamps/masks etc
3. pearls

I wasn't going to do a LO for this week, but the criteria screamed out FUN to me. I have always wanted to do this coloured photo thing and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
