CC challenges for Artistic Document

Well the gorgeous Design Team over at ARTISTIC DOCUMENT set som beautiful challenges on Friday night. I only managed to get two done...The Blind Scrap challenge

I did mine as a DIGI using Papers and elements from Scrap Girls Aoomba, Momento, Mulberry, Jubilant & being with you kits and also Raspberry Road Sassy lass word art and Arminas Priceless Moments. The Pic is of my daughter and her partner at her 21st birthday (3 years ago).

I can't believe they are getting the keys to their home tomorrow. So my little girl is going to be a home owner/buyer.  So proud of them both.

anyway the other challenge was Toni's Big Word (or Alpha challenge).  her instructiosn were.....

Right-o, you lot -- my challenge is for you to scrap a word (or a letter) for your home. It can be Christmas themed -- or not. It can be MDF or chippie or you can glue a bunch of sticks together, it doesn't matter. Just get decorating!!

So this is what i came up with

I made this for Melissa (again) as her first Christmas decoration for her new home.  and i'm pretty chuffed how it turned out too.

Thanks for taking the time to look, take care. xx

Its week 5 in the 80 day challenge at and this week we are in China.
The Inspiration was the Great Wall of china.
The Technique was Colour blocking I've used Kaiser's Lush range and pack your bags range.
The Criteria was:

2. must use red - The ribbon
3. The Stamp (the one we chose at the beginning) - I stamped it multiple times on the Top RH corner block
4. A landscape photo - this was taken in 2006 in Singapore ( the guy on the left is no longer with us and was a good work friend of my husbands)

I also used the tag that we had to make for one of the mini challenges as we have to use the mini challenges on one of our LO's.

Week 4 - India

Hi everyone,
this week our 80 day challenge competition saw us in India.  Our inspiration - Bright Colours, the Technique we had to use was Doodling (yikes)and the criteria we had to use was 1. black, white or Kraft CS + one PP (which we had to pick before we knew were we were going)
2. We had to use Tickets
3. Bling of some description
4. A group photo of 4 or more people
5. our chosen stamp for the comp

This was my Lo
so obviously i chose white CS
my PP (Bella! Melrose vintage paperz 'Panache') which I've used for the matting behind the photo which i coloured in, I've also used it for the flower.
tickets - i stamped using Kaisers Admit one stamp from their Pack Your Bags collection
bling - i used kaisers purple bling for the grapes
photo from a weekend away with friends
and my chosen stamp again from Pack Your Bag collection.
and I doodled the vines and leaves. and the title.
I felt a little bit overwhelmed thinking about doing this one but the girls on the DT team gave us ideas on how to start, like if you have an image in your head SKETCH IT which i did and then once i got started away I went and ended up having a blast doodling and colouring (even outside the lines hahaha)

So know i have another 5 days rest before our next destination (which will also include a mini challenge)

Thanks for taking the time to look, take care. xx
