When I saw this photo of my granddaughter riding her bike, even though it's not a good photo, I had to scrap it. I wanted to try my hand at layering as it's not a technique I'm very successful with. I'm not sure I've cracked it yet either lol, but I'm getting there. Papers are K & Co's Brenda Walton 'Mira'. I cut the title on my Craft Robo. I cut 3 in card and layered them up to be a bit thicker and then covered them with one cut in paper. The embellishments are all cut from sheets of paper within the pack. Some lace and a couple of buttons finished it off.

Journalling reads:
This isn't the best photo in the world, but when I saw it, it captured something in me. As I looked at you riding into the sunset, I wondered where life's journey would take you. Where will you go to? What will you see? What will you be? A doctor? A lawyer? Maybe an artist? Or, maybe you'll be content to just be a wife and mother. Who knows?

Wherever you go and whatever you do Mia, I hope and wish for you that your journey through life has so many more ups than downs and that you will find happiness and fulfilment in everything, big or small. Learn to trust and never be afraid of asking for help if you need it. Stay strong through all the downs and you will come out the other side. Be yourself Mia, because you are beautiful.

It's challenge #101 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS THIS WEEK and the theme is Pink & Purple. We are sponsored by the lovely DIGI DOODLE SHOP and when I saw this set of images, I thought I'd do something different from a card and use them. Everybody that's seen them so far have all commented on how it took them back to childhood. I too remember cutting them out of my weekly comic and spending many a happy hour with them. No computers then eh? lol. Hopefully my 4 year granddaughter will like them too when she's next here.

My grandson Aidan with my daughter, just before Christmas. I'm trying to get myself back in scrapping mode as I haven't done any for months and I've shed loads to catch up on. Papers are from Paper Trunk, the 1974 collection.

Wooohooo!!!! Remember THIS? Well, I've signed up for another of ANDY SKINNERS superb online workshops. This time it's 'Timeworn Techniques' covering everything from rust, to copper patinas to chipped old paint. Can't wait until next month when it starts.

This month's challenge over at I ♥ Promarkers is our 100th so we're doing everybody's favourite theme...Anything goes. Our sponsor is DIGITAL DOWNLOADS with a £10 spend.
As we didn't have to use a sponsor image, I was able to revert back to my fave style..eclectic with a bit of weird and darker colours. The clock lady stamp is by Paper Artsy and this was masked off and over stamped with Pipe Man from Zettiology. The sentiment is by Rivercity Rubberworks and my papers are MME Lost & Found 'Breeze'. I just love the greens in this pad. The velvet ribbon has been in my stash for years and the brown dotty one is new. I finished with three eyelets, as I haven't used them for ages but didn't think pearls were quite right.

Oooops! It's #99

I forgot to do my blog post. Doh! It's challenge #99 over at I ♥ PROMARKERS and this week the theme is Cute and Cuddly. Our sponsor this week is STAMP FAIRY with a $10 gift certificate for our winner. I used her image 'Molly through the year - November'. I reckon it's cute, but not so sure I made it very cuddly, lol.
