Hi ladies,

Here they are:

August is here so it must be time for some challenges.

1. For your product challenge I want you to use at least 3 patterned papers. I was inspired by this technique where you cut up paper into skinny strips then arrange them to form a background.

2. For your technique challenge use some texture through gesso, texture paste, embossing, stamping & / or layering.

3. Colour challenge: think gelato colours to brighten our cold winter days... bright but soft.

4. Rather than a quote I want you to take someone else's idea and make it your own... so scraplift away.

5. Year in review.. include a list..

6. Christmas card. Use a punch.

Remember you can upload photos on Facebook or into the gallery.

That's great ladies.

I really need to do a bit more of my YIR today I think. Although it is looking nice and sunny so some gardening might also be on the agenda.

Good idea to soak up some warm sun. Today is the Teddy Bears Picnic and it is a glorious day outside.

I reckon the craft table will be calling me today Wink

I have the first two challenges completed. Very Happy I did LOs, and found it lovely to create something I could really get my teeth into.

Not at all, I am seeing some great pages I missed over the time too so it is all good. I might just have to do a few lifts at this rate Wink
