Red red red

I haven't scrapped much this month. The Lipstick scrapbooking retreat is having monthly challenges on UKscrappers. I of course left it until the last day to do something on the subject of your favourite cosmetic. I chose red nail varnish and used one of my May Scrap-room kits. thanks again Lorraine for the use of your fun serif to cut the chipboard.

Stalking that postie

I entered a number of competitions and participated in several websites' National Scrapbooking Day celebrations. Yesterday I visited to find out I was a winner of some Rouge de garance stuff for this layout I posted for one of their challenges. It was a layout I created for a challenge set by Shimelle as part of the ukscrappers cybercrop earlier last month.

My prize from Mangobeads also arrived today.

Not a big thing but on Tuesday I managed to start and finish a layout, including journalling in one sitting. And here it is.

I'll say au revoir until next Thursday when I may have a few Paris photos to scrap at Maureen & Beverley's crop at Georgetown Methodist Church.

Boomerang finished

Yes, the layout I started about a month ago is finished. I added some clear Foofala buttons to the flowers having stamped with a flourish on the reverse with Stazon and threaded through some tiny pink ric rac. This was a class from

Another sketch from nycscraps, which we did for the Scrapsupply challenges. This was stitching. I loved the effect of the stitching on Joanne's Jersey Jam layout and had a go myself. It didn't take too long to do.

I'm putting away my scrapping stuff this morning and doing some patchwork. I think this evening I'll break out my albums to put away some of the layouts I've done this month.

Texture plates

One of the challenges at Scrapsupply today has made us break out the new ellison texture plates. They are fab. I used the dotty floral on the pink. I chickened out of using the metallic rubons though as it was such a large piece.

Still cropping

After the National Scrapbooking crop yesterday, we are following the NSD online crop - there are some great prizes to win including a Bind It All.
Apologies to Veronica who couldn't get into the hall yesterday as the doors were all locked, which we didn't realise until Judy left and we'd also closed the internal door so keep the cat out. Next date, subject to booking the hall is 9th June.
Here is my layout for the 5 patterned papers challenge from five manufacturers, using sketch #13 from NYCscraps April / May class.
