Back in cyberland! Two new challenges!

Hurrah, my laptop is back from the IT dept at work. Sadly they have fixed it..... I was hoping for a new one, lol!

We've just had a lovely week away in Scotland with my family, Emma was actually really happy to go to nursery yesterday so she could tell all her friends, but she was back to her usual self this morning and didn't want to go, ah well, hopefully things will change when she goes to school.

I the meantime we have had a new challenge at Anything Goes, our theme this fortnight is BINGO.

Hop along to the challenge site to have a look at the Bingo card and all you have to do is choose 3 items that are in a straight line, or if your mojo is flowing, why not try the Full House and use everything!

On the 31st May our next challenge is due and as Anything Goes will be 1 year old we will be holding a birthday blog hop with some great prizes to be won!!

I have used the last vertical column: Punches/Dies Cuts = Sizzix star die; MS border punch; Nesties ovals and scalloped ovals - Pins/Charms = star and heart pins - Pearls/Gems = half pearls. The DP is Basic Grey Origins and I have water - coloured Edwin with DIs.

Everything is from Craft Den except the Sizzix die from my stash.

The May challenge is also still ongoing on Scrap Our Stash Challenge Blog running until 31st May. The theme this month is 'May Flowers'. This is my first DT entry, super excited! My entry was a SB layout of Emma wearing my sunglasses a couple of years ago. I have used a Bazzil leaf embossed cardstock as my background, and painted a frame using ranger dabber paints. The paper offcuts are Basic Grey Euphoria arranged so that they are peeping out from behind the photo and edged with versa magic purple hydrangea ink. The flowers are a mixture of Petaloo, Prima leaves, and some lovely large irises and roses. I have then added some bling flowers and gem stones and a Rockstar title. Everything but the bling flowers and the DP from Craft Den.

Hop along and join in with all the fun!
