Six LO's and the one where we lost the prelim....

The first 3 of this buch of layouts are all using bons sept kits

lots of yummy girly papers and some gorgeous new MME papers in the girl kit.
and crate paper and basic grey in the boy kit
the challenge was to scrap a photo that was taken 12 months ago and journal about how life is changed or stayed the same.
extra criteria were a) painting (other than on your background Cardstock). see the little blue and white whiskers i painted on their faces(hehe)
b) a stamped title or quote
c) two dates; the date of your your photo and the date of your journaling.
I really enjoyed this challenge, I got to use the prima masks bought here 
i'll be using them again lots i'm sure
Unfortunately all our excited anticipation was for naught, our team put up a dismal performance in the prelim final and that's our season over for 2010:(  Still we can't complain the Geelong Cats have had lots of success in the last four years.
One thing i am thankful for is the way my sweet hubby behaves regarding sporting loses. He's such a great role model for our boys and girl, (not that she is all that interested in footy or sport at the moment-give it time though lol) he doesn't bag or rubbish other teams. He accepts his teams' failures and although he obviously likes it when he wins (who doesn't) he takes it all in his stride.  I've always admired his good sportsmanship and hope that our kids model their behaviour on their Dad :).  Not that their mother is a bad sport or anything, lol.

The next two layouts were done for the september Cyber crop at Scrapbooking top 50
all the challenges are about mysic and lyrics, lots of fun.
the criteria for this lo was to use 1)music paper, 2)monochromatic & 3) pearls.
i used some Kaisercraft PP's and the music paper is 7gypsies.
the buttons and lace doiley are from Purple Pumpkin. Sam has the most gorgeous fabric covered buttons and fabric flowers love them. 
the criteria for this mini challenge was to use individual music notes
and a LO smaller than 12x12" mine is 6x12"
i used another Purple pumpkin button on this LO. See the gorgeous little mushroom, so cute!!

so thats two of the 5 challenges down for this cyber crop and they're not due til the 26th sept. so i still have a week to do the other three challenges.
