Lets get shabby challenge

Loved the inspiration from the DT over on the let's get shabby blog so decided to play along
Have recently got my new printer up and running so decided to scan in some of my older pics that I dont have copies of. I found this one of Josh in the bath when he was about 8 - 12 months old and loved how it looked printed in black & white
The challenge was to use 3 things from your sewing box 1 of them being pins. I used
2 decorative pins
3 safety pins
a white popper type thing that was in a sewing kit I have
a cross stitch floss bobbin
jeans pocket
the beaded starfish was off of an old broken hairgrip
and a couple of pieces of cotton lace

"Happy tickets" from House of 3
grommets by WRMK
Vinyl thickers
alpha beads & ribbon from stash
I inked and distressed and misted all over
and stitched it all together on my sewing machine
Absolutely loved creating this and am very pleased with the result
Hope you like it too

This months sponser is Bluemoon Scrapbooking who are offering a fabbie prize

The challenge this month was a visual

Here is the LO I created

I used Echo Park and Bella Boulevard PP, some stitching (on my wonderful new machine!) the title was cut on the cricut and string, buttons, and a hand cut arrow

Sketchy Thursdays is another great place for sketches
Had a play along this week using some Sassafras pp. This was "Star's" new scooter she had for her birthday. As you can see we did let her play along eventually!!

Dirty scraps challenge 18

I love this pic of Star I had it printed in clour, sepia & B&W
I brought with me some older gogo kits that I bought from the UK scrappers marketplace & this LO was using one of them.
This was the challenge at Dirty Scraps


We all have those events that happen, or those people we meet when you just say REALLY?
I can't believe this is even happening! Who is this person and why in the world have they crossed my path?
These things ONLY happen to me, it's crazy!!
Did I just drop my phone in the toilet really?
Did they really just say that to me??
I cannot believe I did that in front of everyone!

You know those crazy moments that leave you speechless because it's too much!
That's the page I challenge you to get dirty with! 

When I thought about something that left me quite speechless and that was when I found out I was going to be a Grandmother.
There is journalling on the tag that reads : "I wasn't ready to be a Nanny at 39 and you only 15, I wish I could go back to those first moments when I found out, because you have made me so proud" xxx
I went for a throw it all on type of vintage/shabby chic look lol
There are elements from over 10 different manufacturers on there!
I'm really pleased with after the 6+ hours it took me to create
Hope you enjoy looking and I appologise for my waffling

Pencillines sketch 206

I needed a sketch to boost my mojo and Pencillines is always a good place to start. Loved the simplicity of this sketch and here is my take on it using Fancy Pants - rough and tumble pp
This was Rodney in his "digging up the flipping garden" phase
