Challenges - Scrap the Girls and KIU

Well, I spent another day over the Easter weekend scrapping and catching up on my TV programs. I have to say that I felt a little brain drain by the end of the day. Not sure if it was too much TV or too much creative thinking! Perhaps it was a little of both! Anyway, I managed to complete another couple of challenges.

Scrap the Girls for April is a reasonable simple task - Scrap your girl photos using boyish colours and embellishments. So I went to an older Crate Paper line (Toybox I think) which was definitely designed with boys in mind and went from there. This is my end result:


The other challenge I completed was for Kraft It Up. This month you needed to use five items/techniques from the following list:

Layers
Sequins
Mists/Paints
Tearing/Distressing
Stamping
Arrows/Triangles


I ended up going with - Layers, Sequins, Gelatos (included in the mists/paint category), Stamping and Trinagles. This is what I came up with:


Feeling pleased with my effort over Easter, let's just hope it continues on over the coming weeks!

Thanks for stopping by.
