NSD the final challenge plus onwards and upwards!

I have had the best time in the last week I have made 17 pages including the divided page protector one!!  I have never made that many before WOWSER!!

My final page is to scrapping a milestone.... I nearly took a photo of myself scrapping as completing all 24 challenges feels like a major milestone to me!  However in the end I just went for a birthday and scrapped 2 photos of a birthday cake made by my daughter with the addition of a huge candle thing!

I have also taken the opportunity to combine this page with a challenge for Jennifer who is hosting a blog event called onwards and upwards over here.  She has posted hourly during the day since Friday afternoon and it has been fantastic.  I am bursting with even more ideas.  Plus there are some amazing giveaways.
This challenge was to  use:-
a square photo ......I used 2 square photos
something sparkly ....I am beginning to embrace sparkly on my LO's using old sparkly chipboard here
encouraging/happy/uplifting words...celebrate and birthday and make a wish are all very happy!
at least one sticker...... puffy heart sticker
3 stars.... 2 chipboard ones and a punched one plus stars on 2 of the papers
yellow.....all the stars and the word wish
1 stamp..... I stamped the date

I want to say a huge thank you to Shimelle and Jennifer who have taken lots of time preparing some amazing posts on their blogs to keep me inspired and get me scrapping and all for free!!.  I do appreciate how much time it must take putting it all together so thanks a million xxx


  1. WOW Ruth you have been a scrapping demon (no work?? or just shed-loads of inspiration?) - how lovely that DD made you a cake - and what an amazing candle!

  2. That is a very cool candle! & a lovely page to record it on.

  3. Great job on all that scrapping!

  4. Fantastic work, I think that's more pages than i've made all year! X

  5. Great page! I love all the stars, especially the starry paper in the background, and the two square photos look really good stacked on top of each other!

    I'm so glad you've enjoyed my event, and thank so much for entering the challenge! x

  6. 24 pages in a week? I haven't made 24 pages in 12 months... In fact, it's been months since I made any pages at all. I am getting itchy fingers though... I just need to tidy my desk, so there is room for all the scrapping supplies.

    I'm going to look at your other challenge posts too (I'm assuming there must be posts...) - I want to see all your success in one go!

    Fun page by the way - I like what you did with the photos.

  7. Well done on getting all 24 done - I managed 12 which is 12 more than the last time she did it LOL! I'll send you a mail about the mists. I have one brand of glimmer mist, which is the only one stocked by my local craft shop (can't remeber the name without checking the bottle and I am not at home). I do have terrible trouble stopping the nozzles blocking though. I resorted to buying a set of spare nozzles and have blocked those too!

  8. Wows ear is right :) I don't think I've done that many layouts in a year before lol

  9. Crikey, you have been a busy little scrapper!! What a smasher of a lo this is....and what a smasher of a daughter to make you such a fabulous cake :0)

  10. Great job on these challenges!!! I completed seven of Shimelle's challenge on NSD but haven't had a chance to scrap since then. I administer my last final tomorrow & once those are graded & recorded I'm all done for the semester & hope to find time to SCRAP!
