Scrapagogo challenge

What a great weekend we've had with the Scrapagogo girls. Five full on classes with varied techniques and products, add to that Jennie's fabulous chocolate cake and mincemeat slice, and Ian's carrot cake. Today we had an unofficial Scrapagogo crop. we rented the same hall today and carried on from where we left off yesterday. No photos of the official projects yet, but five of us finished our challenge layouts. The bonus for doing the challenge is a chance to win a place on the March 2010 Gogogetaway. Fab prize. So here are the layouts in no particular order:





And I've just heard that they have landed safely at Gatwick airport.

One for the Xmas drawer

When Elizabeth saw the Promarkers in the Kars catalogue, she said some would be nice for school. A little expensive for school was my reply. However at The Studio blog I've won some Promarkers and Grungeboard for my Briggs Layout so I'm going to put away the Promarkers for Elizabeth's Xmas stocking.

Two more days to go and I have photos for three classes and plans for the fourth.

Designed by Stacy Julian

Another challenge last night (but done this morning) at the Studio Blog was by Stacy Julian. I altered the design slightly by stitching around the heart design to emphasise the shape. The thickers letters were just the right colour to go with the aqua T-shirts worn in two of the photos. All done from leftover photo apart from the focus B&W photo.

Started and finished

Wooweee, great crop despite leaving a box of stuff at thome. I have finished all of the following at the crop including any journalling. So now they can be added to the must put in albums pile!!

Light lunch

The first class from the UKS cybercrop and a goodie. Used the July 2009 Scrapagogo kit which was another plus, it all co-ordinated.

There's no place like home

Especially when there's a cybercrop on. The pre-crop challenge was on the theme of "There's no place like home" My layout is of the six homes I've lived in excluding the time I spent at Bristol Poly. I sneaked a shot of house No 4 this morning. It looks so ugly with the fuel tank at the front of the house.

Hoping to get lots of cybercrop layouts done at Saturday's crop and then it's only a week until Scrapagogo comes to Jersey!!!

Three presents down

I have at last finished sewing in the ends on these three pompon scarves. I bought the wool at C&H Fabrics over half term - I had a yearning to knit. A few hours later and a scarf is finished. The wool is Pompon by Rico. Not available in Jersey yet.

So I have two Christmas presents and a Secret Santa gift finished.

New friends

I found a new source of monthly sketches at The Studio This is my take on the November sketch with a few of the photos taken on my geocaching trip over half term. I only took about 8 photos over the five days, just too tired and trying to keep up with Jane all the time!!

Shimelle is running another class and this time it's called "Blogging for Scrapbookers". I'm hoping that by doing the class I'll blog a little more and scrap more too. Don't forget I still have layouts from the last crop two weeks ago in my bag ready to photograph and add to my blog and two need a little journalling.

Details of the class are here
