Crafty time!

I'm beginning to loath wedding dress shopping! Drooling over photos in magazines is fine, but trying on dress after dress after dress "arms up" It's starting to blend into a barrage of white and ivory!!! Anyhow, rant over. I've had a good day scrapping today and figured it was time to show you a couple of pages I've done. Both were for UKS Scrap Factor play along challenges. And what challenges they have been!

So, without further ado: Week 7

It was a sketch challenge and I had fun with it! The car was our hire car for New Zealand, we did around 2000km (thats around 1243 miles for those who prefer old money!) From Cape Reinga to Queenstown. And the letters were hybrids (I was sooo proud of myself for the printing and cutting) they're from Two Peas 'Strawberry Iced Kisses' Not sure about the name, but love the letters!

The other challenge was week 10 no patterned paper. Which I found was much easer than it sounded!
I played with mists (the nozzle on it sprays in the most random direction, and it sprays backwards!), crackle paint, embossing powder and my sewing machine. ^_^ I also had a moment of weakness in Hobbycraft and purchased a MS butterfly punch, you know, the one with the dinky butterflies and got a little carried away!

I'm off to continue a bit of net trawling for some project ideas. If you've got any ideas/links, feel free to share!

Love your layouts, especially the second one - the misting is fab :D I remember the trauma of wedding dress shopping - keep at it, you'll fine 'the one' eventually, and you'll know when you do!

Ah yes, the nightmare that was wedding dress shopping! Hang in there though, you'll definitely know the which dress is "the one"!! Love your LOs, especially the second one.

I have mists with a mind of their own aswell. I usually end up with very messy hands. Fab layouts.
