Some sunshine and some scrapping!!!

Today i was woken by my 4 year olds chitter chatter and "oh mummy the sun is shining!" Unfortunately my alarm had not gone off yet but i guess she never let's it have a chance. She is my early bird, the one who reminds me that if I have a late night I will pay for it the next day. Pay i do since i have given up my coffee. Today i definitely have been trying to have my cake and eat it too dashing around getting washing done, changing the sheets and airing out my house. It feels like it has been raining forever. As much as i love the rain i don't like it trying to force its way into my house. Not to mention the children go crazy when they are cooped up for too long. So as i said  i have been trying to have my cake and eat it too because not only have  i been cleaning i have also finished another maths assignment which was a bit yuck-it was all about Exponents and i am really glad it is over!!!!! I have also sat to finish some of my projects i have started. I have really been sticking to my New Years Resolution lately and have been finishing each and every project i have started so there have been no unfinished projects added to my already monstrous pile. So now for some shares.First up my BAP for over at Prima. I love Prima it is so girly and pretty much everything i am not lol but i do love working with it. So first the sketch
2012 March2
Now this is what i came up with using the Romantique collection papers and chipboard stickers as well as some sewing,(really warming up to my sewing machine and i know i need to practice more but i still have fun.)

Another page for Kraft It Up! I literally put my blood, sweat and tears into this page lol. How you ask ? The flamin' staples! I have an old stapler so to put them on the page i have to open it up and staple onto my foam pad and then close them up. Normally fine but today, no, the staple went straight through my finger!! Anyway the requirements for this challenge were

1 Piece of Kraft Cardstock or Patterned Paper
2 Photos of any size
A 3 word title
4 different pieces of patterned paper and
5 different embellishments

So this is what i came up with

I included a hidden tag hidden behind my photo as i have made a vow to do more journalling. When i first started scrapping i journalled every last detail of the photo and as time has progressed i have gotten lazy and mainly put the date but that is it. So  for my criteria i used the Kraft for the base; i used paper from October Afternoon, Kaiser and Pinkpaislee ; my embellishments were doilies(i used two a big white square one and a small crochet one),ribbon (i also included the fibre as a form of ribbon),the journal tag, staples and the little sticker on the photo. I managed to get some alcohol inks to drip down the page to represent the icy pole dripping. I also doodled the title which was hard to do, note to self to never doodle foam again! as well as put some dimensional magic on it(hello old friend it has been awile). So page complete and over all i am happy with it. Now i am off to finish some more challenges and pages to hopefully share tonight. Until then have fun scrapping!!
