Cybercrop Fun...

I had a wonderful time last weekend playing along at Chook Scraps March Cybercrop.
This layout is one I did actually start for the cybercrop, but didn't quite get it finished in time to upload (D'oh). It is Connor and his little friend from another house in our Court. They have a wonderful little friendship, and I am really happy that he has found a little friend so close by:0)
I have used the new Basic Grey Hello Luscious range - and it really does live up to its title!!

I also used some Tim Holtz metal bits and pieces, which I altered with some Dabbers - my favourite paint at the moment!! Haha!!
If you think there is a common pattern of me using Tim Holtz bits and pieces, you're right - I am totally addicted to his products!! LOL!

This layout was for Challenge 1 - I used one of my all-time favourite photos, a vintage one of my Pa (Grandfather) at around age 18. I love vintage photos - and this one has always fascinated me, as it was taken in a well known area of my hometown, and if you look closely at the background, it really captures an era so well. I also happen to think Pa looks so dapper!! No wonder my Nanna fell in love with him, and stayed so devoted to him.... oh, the fact that he was a wonderful husband and provider probably helped too!

The next layout was for Challenge 3. I am TOTALLY in love with this range at the moment - Prima Botanical. I love the colours, and the Steampunk theme it has running through it allows me to carry boys layouts pretty well.
Here, I used lots of techniques - stitching, distressing, stamping and embossing. I sprayed the cogs with Glimmermist, then painted some Glimmer Glam on them......

Here is a close up of a flower I made. I love how it turned out, and will definately make more in the future.... I used an EK Success scallop punch, and once the flower was made, I coated the edges of the petals with glue, and dipped them in Twinklets Diamond Dust - I think it looks very "Primaish" don't you??

Ok, well I am now off to play in some Scrapbook Savvy Cybercrop challenges, and get things ready for their Blind Scrap tonight!
Cheers - don't forget to leave some love, I love reading your comments!
