Last weekend over at Shimelle.com there were several fabulous challenges. I was away celebrating my Mum's 80th birthday with lots of family so was unable to take part at the time but have managed to join in since with these pages
Firstly there was a challenge to scrap your significant other so I used this colour combo from SJ Crafts blog challenge ....
and combined this with the weekly challenge at UKS to use the sketch provided, ink/mist and be inspired by the word 'sun' and made a page about my 3 significant others....
I actually had a bad mist accident and as I removed the top of the ink I poured a lot straight onto my page! Luckily I have managed to hide it and replaced some of the papers I had originally planned on using. It also fits perfectly with a line in the scrapping bingo challenge#3 at Scrap & Play (use a punch...hearts and chevrons, use mist...orange mist seen on page and chipboard....clouds)
Next Shimelle had a colour palette challenge, it had to include pink (one of my least favourite colours) but it fitted in perfectly with the UKS house challenge using this palette with the pinky coral colour.... (actually the SJ Crafts colour combo also fits the challenge rather well!)
so I used My scraps and more sketches #84
to make this page featuring gorgeous piglets from a visit to a farm at Easter.
Finally I used Shimelle's use ink/mist challenge with an old sketch from My Scraps and more Sketches to feature another pig. He is part of a pair that my friend has bought and is raising them until Christmas dinner.....she has named them Sausage and Bacon!!
