More Crop!

I have had so much fun taking part in my first ever cyber crop. The classes have been amazing with such beautiful ideas, I've been so glad I got to have a go at such wonderful ideas.

Yesterday morning's project was definately the most time consuming but I really wanted to do it. It's a Christmas countdown box frame. Most of the time was spent making the frame (cutting, assembling, painting) and it all got very messy with lots of acrylic paint and glue. But I'm pleased with how it turned out and can't wait to put it up on 1st December:

Next was a challenge by my team, The Lions. As the Wizard Of Oz's lion wanted courage, we had to scrap something that showed courage. I scrapped about it taking me 10 years to finally pluck up the courage to photo my scar:

I wasn't overly keen on yesterday afternoon's classes so I decided to have a go at one of Friday night's that I'd missed (due to being a wuss and not being able to stay up past 10!). It was to use up lots of scraps of ribbon and was great as you didn't really need to colour co-ordinate (which is always a bonus for me!):
This morning there was a class I really wanted to do at 9am (which I can't post here as I've made it for an Xmas pressie). However, as my son was up at stupid o'clock I took advantage and caught up on one of last night's classes. I loved how this looked with all the doodling and I had the perfect papers for it:

Finally was this class, which featured these gorgeous paper roses. They took me forever to make but they look so effective I'm glad I perservered with them. Also love this pic of Em and I had this lovely paper from a kit I got in the sale at the craft shop last week, so a winning combination me thinks!
So, that's the cropping all done for now. Had a lovely weekend locked away in my craft room and am pleased with my projects. Really looking forward to the next one!

Gorgeous pages Miss Lou. I love them all! I'm glad you had cyber cropping fun, just bummed I couldn't join you. Maybe next time.
