Midweek extra

Yet again I have managed to combine the dare with a challenge on the JB forum. I like it when this happens as I often find I have to justify my personal crafting time with being so busy work wise. I suppose this is a bug bear of working at home! So here we go.................
August Challenge 11 - Labelz
I love Labels, you can find some really nice ones attached to clothes these days. Bright colours, fabric ones, ones with ribbons, some with mini safety pins, buttons.......I collect mine and thought it would be a fun challenge to see what labels we can all find and use. This challenge can be LO's or cards. I've used a label of a pair off next jeans for mine...Yours doesn't have to be off an item of clothing, but it's not to be a handmade tag or label.

The DCM instruction for this week is Now then, maybe you need a little extra challenge in the middle of the week - well, if so, as usual we have something to amuse you....
Dot Dot Dot Dash Dash Dash
We'd like you to make a card featuring dots and dashes, spots and stripes - that's it, a nice easy and fun little theme for you to play with - just make sure you get both spots AND stripes on your card. We'd love to see your dotty, spotty, stripey creations so please come back and leave a message when you're ready to share.....

I'm quite chuffed with this card! The stripey paper is from the Wedding Collection mat pad by K & Co, the spotty paper is Green Apple by Sassafraslass from a scrapbook kit bought from the Scrummy Stash Cafe the image is stamped using an unmounted stamp from Pixiedust on ebay, the ribbon from Ribbon Oasis (where else!) and the tag with hearts I snaffled off my mum while we were in Cornwall. It was in a new skirt she had brought with her. The other side of the tag just says Per Una. I just knew I would find a use for it, just not how quickly :)
My second challenge today from the forum is
August 17th Friday Night Challenge -Not a Square
we want you to create a LO with a shaped photo - NOT a square or a rectangle

The paper is from the new glitter pad by K & Co and the flowers are a mixture of Papermania and Prima. The brads are by Doodlebug.

These are the first photos I've scrapped from our holiday this year (shock) We went to the World in Miniature near Perranporth last Wednesday. Goodness, it seems ages ago!! It has become a tradition while we are in Cornwall that we have to visit the place, even though every time we have been it has rained :) We first took my eldest daughter about 20 years ago and I've seen it become shabbier over the years. We were pleasantly surprised this year though as it has changed ownership and is in the process of being renovated. I plan to turn this into a DLO as I printed off more photos than I needed.

Till later.

I am in love with that green spotty paper.
Fab card. The unusual colour for a wedding card really works for me.
