13th Birthday

Challenge #4 over at D-Lish Scraps Cybercrop for January was Simply Stencilled. You had to incorporate 3 different stencils into your project. I had had some recent lessons in mixed media & was in the throws of experimenting, so this project was fun! I used texture paste with 2 of my stencils, then sprayed gold spray over a 3rd. Here is my son on his 13th birthday. I had given the camera to my oldest & asked her to take the photos, unfortunately they were all a bit blurry, & this was the better of the lot.

Products used:

Cardstock: Bazzill
Embellishments: Kaisercraft stencils, texture paste, Dylusions spray - Tangerine Dream, Heidi Swapp Colour Shine - Black Velvet, Gold, Kaisercraft mists - Yellow, Orange, candles, brads, twine, Pressed Petals chipboard word, Memento ink, D-Lish enamel dots

Challenge #3 over at D-Lish Scraps Cybercrop for January was a colour challenge. Using, white, pink, mint & gold glitter was easy as I love this colour combo. I did have to scour the computer & my 1000's of photos to find the perfect photo - taken way back in 2011! Here is my oldest on her 11th birthday party day where she went horseriding with her friends. I have added a pocket page with the remaining photos of the day.

You & Me

Last month I decided to give a Cybercrop Challenge a go over at D-Lish Scraps. They have 4 different challenges & you can do 1 or you can do all of them. I have never done one of these challenges, so I wasn't sure how I would go. I started at number 1 & was very happy to get them all done. The first challenge was Diagonal Design & here is my son with our sweet, late puppy who we lost on Christmas Eve
