Anything Goes Challenge #51 - Die cuts and Punches

Here we are again, these challenges come round so quickly don't they?! This time our theme over at Anything Goes Challenge Blog is

Die cuts and/or Punches

I do believe I have one or two of these, LOL and I am betting that most of you do as well!

I have made this card for my daughter, Emma who is 5 on Friday - wuh?! where did that time go? I only had her last saturday! Well she has asked for enough toys on her list to fill the past five years of birthdays anyway, I groan everytime the toy adverts come on, she wants everything!

All the Marrianne Design dies are from Craft Den, together with the 8x8 card, bo bunny cardstock, bling, paper roses, stickles, and a great selection of Martha Stewart punches, with some lovely snowflakes just in. The image and the lace are from my stash. At this stage I am still making Emma's cards to please myself, she hardly notices cards when she is opening presents! When she asks for a Hannah Montana card I will give in and buy one, lol. Although she is more likely to ask for Batman..

Please come along and join us at Anything Goes Challenge Blog. We had an amazing amount of entries last time, over 580!! Apologies if not everyone recieved a comment, we were overwhelmed, and very chuffed!! Thanks for all your amazing entries!

I realised I didn't post any of my recent scrapbook pages either for a while, so here goes :-)

This was my September entry as DT member for Scrap Our Stash Challenge Blog, our theme in September was Grids. I don't really do straight lines in my scrapbooking very often, so I softened the background grid pattern with bunting and flowers and curved edges to my photos.

The theme for October is 'Using a favourite Quote'. Come along and join in!

Here are my last few Craft Den scrapbooking class layouts.
This layout was free reign so we all chose our own papers and went in our own directions. I used the Prima Springtime collection papers for a photo of Emma when she was just about 9-10 months old in a huge dining chair at Granny and Grandpas. The lovely flower border along the bottom is a Martha Stewart border punch, which we have worked out how to double punch to make this border. I cut flowers and fairies from coordinating papers and added Tim Holtz grunge board letters coloured with versa magic ink and glossy accents. This layout is using more lovely Prima papers and a corrugated card and ribbon heart and frame design designed by Lynne. I have had these Disneyland Paris photos for a couple of years just waiting to be used and I thought these papers were perfect for the fairyland atmosphere of Disney. Yes, that is me wearing Piglet ears. I love Piglet...

The last was another free reign with an option to copy Lynne and use these lovely Bo Bunny papers. I completely copied Lynne, as I loved her layout with the trees and birds! Emma is running around my mum's garden with string for my mum's cat Millie to chase. She absolutely loves Millie and thankfully Millie is one of those lovely compliant and well natured (and quite stupid) cats who put up with an lot!!
Thanks for looking, see you again soon! K xx
