Sketchabilities 59

I have such great skypy friends! We had a party for my birthday (more to follow on that tomorrow)
Fi set some challenges and one of them was Sketchabilities sketch 59 with some added twists
This was the sketch
Added to this we had to use
Black & White with 1 other colour
Die cuts
Fi being Fi marched onward and upward with hers here
I got on with it after a small amount of arguing that kraft was a neutral (of course I lost!) here
And Debbi after lots and lots of moaning was the first to get hers up on her blog here LOL

I think I maybe strayed a little from the sketch but I am very happy with the result
The pictures are of my Grandad, my grandads sister and her hubby and my Uncle at my wedding in 2001
Supplies used
american crafts a la carte for the background
echo park for the record
Maya Road kraft printed doilies
MME brad
Basic grey chipboard swirls
Hambly tansparency
Prima stamp
AC thickers

Hope you like it

AAM Flashback challenge My Five

See THIS post for the whole challenge

I decided to have a different take on this challenge and scrap My Top 5 things I like to use on layouts at the moment. I might do one for each year as I think it will be nice to look back at these as with most things there are trends that we cant help but follow (well maybe that's just me lol)
My top 5 are

It's not very often I do a layout without pics, in fact I'm not sure as tho I have ever done one lol
Most of the bits I used are from my scraps box where I have all sorts of items from circles to borders, I dragged my underused cricut out and cut out all the letters.
I also used a few other things that are faves on a layout for me such as twine, pins and doilies
Hope you like my take and that it encourages you to play along too!

AAM flashback challenge

Flashback Challenge: #32 My Five

Hi everyone!

I hope you had fun reading more about the Creative Team. I'm sure you can see why I'm definitely looking forward to finally getting our new challenges going with the inspiration from these talented women. We have only ONE MORE MONTH until the new site launches. Are you as excited as me?

I'm still finalizing some details and little changes will be taking place on the blog. Then, December it will be full steam ahead and fabulous sponsor. You won't want to miss it!

Let's continue to warm up our AAM layout making muscles. How about taking another flash back into time with me? This time we'll go back to Challenge #32, which appeared on the blog in December 2010. It's a fun one. Here's the original text:

Inspired by the cell phone marketing scheme to make unlimited phone calls to your favorite 5 people, I challenge you to create a layout about YOUR 5. It could be your top friends, places to vacation, or memories from the past year. Wherever you choose to go, as long as you show us YOUR 5!!!
Do you remember that? Do the mobile phone providers still have the Top 5 feature or did it go kapoot? Well, I still LOVE the approach to a good AAM layout. Did you create a layout way back when that you'd like to share? Or perhaps, you need to dig into your stash and create one NOW.

If you choose to create something, which you totally should, share with us in the link area below and YOU could be eligible to win a $10 gift certificate to Two Peas in a Bucket.  You just never know when a prize will appear. :)

Hope your November is off to a lovely start!
Hope you will all come along and join in
