We had to scrap our favourite shoes, subtly incorporate our 4 'secret weapons', and include a special effect. I particularly enjoyed the special effect aspect of this challenge. I printed two of my photo, one in colour and one in black and white. I then cut the thongs from the colour photo and stuck them over the other photo with foam squares, giving the image a 3D effect! Looks great IRL!
Last weekend I did a class at my LSS. It was taught by my good friend Tanya, and was her first class ever. She did an amazing job!!! This is what we created;
Rest assured, these are not my first Christmas cards! I made a start on my cards a couple of months ago, but they were put to the backburner for a while since Ollie was born. Well, I pulled them out last night and did a bit more on them... I hope to have the majority of them done by the end of the week so I can begin writing in them before December rolls around. Not long left til Christmas! Aargh!!!
In other, non-scrappy news, yesterday was Ollie 2 month birthday. We celebrated with a little blue cupcake with a candle in the top. We used to do this wih Tilly every month leading up to her first birthday. Bad Mummy forgot all about Ollie's first month birthday, but I guess at least I remembered this month!!! Here's a pic;
Tilly was most pleased that Ollie is too little to eat cupcakes;
Oh and one other thing while I remember to mention it... look out for a card of mine that is published on page 91 in this month's issue of Scrapbook Creations, number 72! They have just launched a stamping and card-making section, and I was lucky enough to have one of my cards included in it... on the same spred as cards by Maxine Hazebroek, Carole Jansen, and Belinda Venables!!! Eek!!! I should also have cards in the following two issues.
Well, that's it for today... off to work on my Christmas cards for a bit before my angel wakes from Slumberland!
