5 in 5 for August

Sandie started 5 in 5 on her blog last month.  It is just a really simple once a month thing to do, share 5 photos taken  in 5 minutes.  I joined in last month and was really excited and did it the day I saw her post my photos are here.

For August I took all my photographs in my parents garden and although I did this several weeks ago I am a bad blogger and am very late sharing them this month, so late in fact that the linky tool on Sandie's blog has now closed!

Here they are.......

better late than never!!

Our team challenge on UKS

Recently K (from K's crafty corner) and I set up a new team on UK Scrappers  we are the Chatty Scrappers! (If you have ever considered joining a team on UKS I highly recommend it, it has been a great experience and really great for boosting my scrapping mojo and joining in with other scrappers..... we will probably expand our team at some point so let us know if you are interested)

We have joined forces to set the weekly team challenge, there are 4 of us who regularly scrap and join in the challenges so we all decided on what we wanted to do and made example layouts.

Initially we decided on a sketch  (originally found here)

and then we chose to use only scraps (other than the background sheet) and to scrap about a holiday (I have chosen last year's Summer holiday but it could be Christmas or ski-ing or Easter whatever you choose)

It would be fab if you decide to join in with us and if you do please either pop over to UKS and join us or let us know on either K's or my blogs....... thanks xxx
