Ages ago I used to go to a crop once a month, when money got tight at the start of last year though I just couldnt afford to go anymore :( Instead one Saturday a month I set up in the livingroom and while I'm still there to take over if needs be, the kids are pretty much Marks problem lol. I haven't managed to do it in a while so as cameron was happy on the computer I got caitlins playdough out and started scrapping :)
Another thing I used to do was the challenges on UKS but for some reason that stopped too, new year new start and all that so decided to catch up on those.
This was week 3, rules were:
Use sketch provided - Done
Use stitching - Theres faux stitching around the edge of the brown tags.
Use paints/inks - Used the blue paint in the background.
Use a lin or quote from a poem - Theres loads of poems called Dream :)
This was a photo taken in Turkey, we were on a trip to a local market but stopped off at a Turkish rug facory first. OMG the prices were insane! £250 for one the size of a doormat lol. Dad nearly passed out! Got some nice photos outside though :)
Challenge week 2, rules were:
Use sketch - done
Use new stash - The brown background paper was in a pack I got for Christmas.
Use 5 of somthing - Used 5 sitckers.
journalling reads, 'Mud, wellies, the great outdoors; your Nanny has often said you two should have been born on a farm. So camping out in one one weekend was right up your alley!'
Challenge week 1, rules were:
Use one large photo - Done
Use scraps - The paper and photo are all from my scraps to be used box.
Use a meaningful quote - Not sure if 'I love you a bushel and a peck' counts but I think its meaningful :)
Struggled with this one as I never know what to do with big photos. Dug out this paper from a page kit from last March and thought it was nice enough to not need too much more.
Still have the house challenge to do but think the kids and Mark were patient enough letting me do these three. Had a lovely relaxed day :) Rounding it off nice with fish and chips in the oven (pizza for fish allergy Caitlin lol) and some dvds tonight.


  1. Lovely layouts. Well done on doing all the challenges, I've only managed the house challenge this month x

  2. Gorgeous LOs :) I love the photo you've used for my challenge (Week 1) it's beautiful :) and that paper is too, the quote card matches it well :) Sian (Violaceous)

  3. great pages:) You've just gotta do what you can - as long as you get a bit of time to do the things you want. It should get easier when the children are a bit older - although THEN they don't like being photographed!

  4. Well done on getting 3 challenges done in one go!

  5. Great layouts and well done on catching up on the challenges x
