crop weekend part one

Shimelle has a crop weekend running from today ( although you have over a week to join in if you feel like it) I've already had a go at her first two scrappy challenges-

Number one a Scraplift there is a LO on her blog to use for inspiration ( follow the link at the top) I flipped it 90 degrees
the photo is Nancy holding the egg she won as a prize in the Lutterworth Museum Easter egg hunt- I don't know what was better for her- winning the egg or her brother's jealousy!

Number two- a challenge to use at least three different paper collections on one LO- this was right up my street- I always mix manufacturers or collections as I feel my LO looks too homogonised if I fo- so this Lo has on it some
Echo Park
Studio Calico
Jillibean soup and some
Crate paper

the photo is me aged about two or three in my toy box- journalling is about the memories of the toy box itself


  1. Nicely done. Both layouts are awesome! Love the doilies and all the great embellishments!

  2. I especially love the way you have rotated the design in the first one - very clever

  3. Lovely LOs, I particularly like the colours you've chosen for both

  4. Super cool pages! I love how you flipped the layout on the first. I love the colors on the second one too!

  5. Lovely pages, I love the vintage feel of them.

  6. great LOs, I really like your use of the arrows on both

  7. I rotated the first one your doilies!
