More Scrappy Challenges...

Shimelle's Scrappy Weekend has provided my mojo with just the kick it needed to get back into scrappiness! I managed a few during the Scrappy Weekend but wanted to try a few more - starting back at school this week meant I didn't have a chance until yesterday and today but so far I have managed another two challenges - yay!

This one was for the Grid It Up Challenge - I recently invested in some punch all over the page punches from Studio Calico and wanted to use the square punch to create a window type effect. The punches are really easy to use although my skills at lining it up straight are pretty rubbish. I tried to create the window effect as this picture is of one of the many snails who like to crawl up out front window after it has been raining! A little random I must admit but I love scrapping these kind of everyday type things.

The next challenge I completed was the Half Page Challenge...not something I would usually do but I loved it all the same! It's actually very hard to restrict yourself to half the 12x12 page but I hoped the misting didn't make the page look so bare.

This is also a very retro photo - I think I am only around 2 here! Myself and my parents were dressed up to raise money for charity, Children in Need I think. How the times have changed...

I may be back with more of the challenges depending on is 11 months until I get married! To say I am excited is an understatement. We have been planning since May 2010 and now I can say the wedding is less than a year away. I love it!
