This is my entry for Stuck?! sketches second June challenge.I painted the backing cardstock with white dots then used 2 different pattern papers,a giant chipboard button plus a scrapmatts corset with matching rhinestones.I journalled using dymo tape ans the title is a play on words "Cause it's me" became corsets me.

Thena and I met up again after saying goodbye in 1976.To us,we still feel the same. So I decided to call this layout what wrinkles!?
The criteria for show us your stuff was teal and cream with a handmade item...the crochet flower. I also hand cut the bottom edging of the teal strip.
I was inspired for the lollipop ladies challenge by the actual dripping chocolate.I cut the brown cardstock to look like drips running down the page.I've added metallic hearts,small silver brads and a loopy brad behind the string bow.

The challenge at Lollipop ladies was rainbow paddle pops with colours of purple/pink/yellow and swirls.I found this "all my memories" paper which took me back to the psychadelic '60s and Carnaby St.Luckily I've been there. We passed this shop with a facade to look like a radio.I hand painted swirls on the purple cardstock then mounted the photo at an angle and trimmed with looped robbon and corrugated cardboard.I matted the bottom third of the page with mesh.

This layout featuring our very clever Christopher,is a scrapjack of Mel's layout on Aussie Scrapjacked. I used Kaiserkraft Class of 87 papers,Weave Extra stars,embossed gold paper plus a felt flower I made.It was also an opportunity to use alphas I have bits of.I'm feeling a sense of accomplishment after this one.
Annabelle received a new scooter for her 4th birthday. I took photos of each step of the process as she hadn't ridden a scooter before.
For Kraft it up this month we needed a timeline,a minimum of 3 photos and journalling.I think my layout fits the bill.I picked up the crimson in the bicycle with corrugated card and ribbon featuring the same pink.The fozz felt title stands out more in reality.

From screen 2 scrap this months theme was Up.I used the London Eye as my inspiration.Required elements are clouds,balloons and a 3d embellishment.The latter is my organza ribbon rosette which fluffs out nicely when not being squashed in the scanner.I put 2 photos on this layout,one of the eye from across the river and one from inside the eye of a view underneath.The edge of my camera bag is there to prove we were in it.

I cross stitched these cherries for this layout and stitched them on using my machine.I also stitched a border and circle as well.The patterned paper is Japanese.Erica was wearing her red polkadot dress and even my webber is round so there's an abundance of circles in this layout.This is for this months white with one challenge
