I hope you're sitting down...

....because on the weekend, I actually did some scrapbooking! Remember when I used to scrapbook every day? Wow...that seems like a long time ago now :)

The lovely girls over at Scrapsidaisy held a Cyber Crop over the weekend, and I decided to play along, just to see if a challenge or two could get some scrapping mojo happening!

I started with Challenge number 2, which was to use a song title.

To be honest, I really really wanted to scrap one of my photos from our Sharon Manning photoshoot, so
choosing the title was easy :) Here's a detail shot...

The sticker is Miss Nelly by Kaisercraft...and I bought the whole sheet just to get it! I've highlighted some of the details with Smooch accent ink, Tim Holtz Distress Stickles and some Kaiser pearls. The paper is my favourite Echo Park Dots and Stripes...just the one sheet, cut through and flipped so I could use both sides.

Challenge number 5 involved pre-choosing a letter and a number, with each being a code for what you had to use on your layout. My challenge was to use 3 photos and brads.
More polkadots from Echo Park Dots and love love them! Can you tell? The tree border strip is from Echo Parks' Country Drive, along with some American Craft Thickers for the title.

It's not too late to play along...the challenges are open until Wednesday night, and there are prizes up for grabs ;) I still have a couple of layouts I'm working on...the ironing will have to wait!

They're wonderful. Particularly love the Family one. Just so perfect.

I got a bit busy Sunday and Monday, so hopefully will manage to get a few more challenges done today and tomorrow. We shall see.

BTW, I'm working on the pencil case pattern ... thanks so much for asking! :)
