cyber crop!

Well though it sounds like some kind of strange adult internet activity, a cyber crop is where a number of classes/challenges are posted on a scrapbooking site for members to follow. UKS tend to have 2 a year and I LOVE it! This times theme is Monopoly so each class is slightly themed towards the game. Though you can make it your own. For example, the class below was originally photos of your first home. I don't have any of mine so did a chritsmas one instead. :)
This was a challenge to use up stash you normally save for 'something special'. Im dreadfull for this and have loads of crystals and pearls I just never touch. So I bit the bullet and covered this LO with stickles and pearls. So much so I forgot to leave room for a title!

Don't love this lo. Was a challenge to scrap a shopping expereince. I did how I always go OTT with xmas shopping. It was one of those LOs where the kids were acting up while I was making it so I'd do one little bit, deal with them, do another, deal with them. And I always forget where I was going with it so end up just shoving it together!

Now I LOVE how this one turned out. The dotty paper was leftover from another lo (further down) Normally I'd have just thrown it away but kept it this time and it turned out to be the perfect frame for this. The challenge was to scrap a holiday and water. So I did Caitlin at the beach last summer. Water could either be the sea, or the torential downpour that followed moments after this picture was taken.

This is where the dotty frame came from. love this class. so simple but effective.

This was the first class I did and messed it up a bit. lol. The idea was to use letters to make a title, paint over it then take the letters off leaving the outline behind. I used felt letters for the L and O. Not thinking that the paint would soak through. Woops! This is part of a couple lo. In the other Caitlins sitting on the floor after pulling a bowl of beans on herself after I left the room for a moment. Cameron is delighting at telling on her. lol

Simple lo, challenge was to use vines.

This is my mystery kit LO. Each team had a kit, where basically you're sent a box containing some embelisments, patterned paper, cardstock etc, and you can make whatever you want using only items from the box. For this I used my new vintage findings card for the slice and I LOVE it! Dont use my slice as often as I should as its quite loud so dont use it when the kids are in bed. but think I'll make more of an effort now.

Well thats really all I've been doing! Besides cleaning and packing! More tomorrow so will be back with more then, lol.
