Cows, craft and challenges.

Happy Friday everyone!

Today Lydia and I headed off to the annual Craft and Quilt Fair at Perth Exhibition that my girl loves to go crafty shopping with me :)

As we walked into the auditorium, we were greeted by this cow which Lydia was quite captivated with...'s part of an exhibition happening at Margaret River. And that, folks, is the only photo I took all day :) Guess we were busy shopping! I didn't buy much, but we had a lovely day out :)

Friday also means a new challenge on the Scrapsidaisy forum, and this week it was MY turn to set the challenge! I decided to challenge myself (and everyone else LOL) to scrap a school photo, mainly because I really struggle to scrap them, and have lots and lots in various places around the house!
My goal was to scrap a LO that had a pocket to store all the spares, like the class photo and all the various sizes that I seem to order every year, and that was a design that I could replicate over and over again. Let's face it, school photos are really not that much fun to scrapbook :)

With these goals in mind, I used a punch and my Slice machine to create the embellishment for the page, because I can use them over and over my new Martha Stewart Swirly punch :)

This is what it looks like with the extra photos....all in the one place, and ready to go into an album...WOOOHOOOOOOO!!!
I then created another LO ina different colourway for Riley's photos...

...just to prove to myself that the design would work :) How many more school photos to go? LOL...don't ask!!!
Have a fantastic weekend

Now that is a great idea, i am sure going to copy that one. Did you say that you didn't buy much at the craft fair? Were you feeling OK? It looks like Tracey spent enough for all three of us.xx
