off the rails scrapbooking

The challenge this month at Off the rails Scrapbooking is to use chipboard, I only have a little stash of chipboard that I don't use very often, so it was good to have a challenge to use them. I choose a handful of chipboard cogs to stick around the page, happy to have  made a little dint in my chipboard stash at least!

This photo isn't the best, it was raining and I wanted to start scrap booking this lovely little collection of pretties I received in the mail from Scraphappykat.                                                                                       I fussy cut a few flowers from the floral paper and cut out leaves and flowers from the lace paper, a few of the flowers were coloured  with some watered down ink, the stripe and floral paper were cut into stripes and stuck down along with the spotted ribbon, I pulled the white flower apart to make it go further and tucked in a couple of the felt flowers, I backed the heart with card stock and tied on the other piece of lace into a bow with the addition of a piece of card stock from my stash and a sprinkle of ink my page was done!

Stripes and polka dots!
that's the criteria for this challenge at Off the rails scrapbooking!
I searched my large stash of paper and found a few papers with polka dots on them, but stripes were a whole different thing, I found one that would be suitable and one with printing on it so I counted that as a stripe also, got to give me points for trying! I still struggle with boy pages they look o.k but they all kinda look the same and not really my favourite style. give me flowers, layers, lace and prettiness and I am on a roll!

Im still here!

I have had a bit of a holiday from scrap booking, we have shuffled our house around and my scrap booking room has been moved to a tiny bedroom, it's not working, not enough storage and not enough room for cupboards, so I'm re-claiming my original spot at the back of the family room, after we have it plastered and a wall put in that is, so I'm still in my little room surrounded by boxes, I have been using up my excessive amounts of paper by making up kits and having a group of friends around every couple of weeks to give them a "class"  I do use that word loosely as I'm no teacher! but it's fun for all!
 I managed to make a couple of pages for online comps in April, but couldn't find the little card thingy that goes in the camera to take pics of them to enter them! my daughter brought me a new one and I'm rearing to scrap! so hopefully I will be back with some pics soon.
