Simple Recipes Challenge

Another UKS challenge from the Simple Recipes collection.
The June 2013 challenge was to 
1. Use the colours Ice Blue, Turquoise and Green Gold.
2.Scrap an old photo possibly a Christmas one.
3. Use patterned Alphas.
4. Use Washi Tape
5. Use old stash with a sprinkling of new.
So here's my offering the papers were old ones that I have had for several years,
Washi Tape stripes,
The Alphas have a woodgrain pattern on them,
Photos from Christmas 2008.
Really like the colours together the only downside is while looking for the date of the photos found another batch for the same day, so it looks like this will turn into a double page spread.

Good Morning To You!

A page using the June Counterfeit Challenge kit and the challenge given by Sian for the UKS house challenge for week 3 of June.

The Challenge was to incorporate song lyrics and musical notes, as well as some metal and some hidden journaling.
The photo is of my daughter one morning after she had spent the night in my bed.

June Counterfeit Kit Challenge

I have really been looking foward to the new Counterfeit kit Challenge coming out and haven't been disappointed.

This months choices are both from Scraptastic and the kits are called after the storm and destination unknown. I chose destination unknown as I loved the bright pinks and yellows, and it seemed a nice change from the darker colours last month.
I loved the original kit so much I decided to make the add on to.

Original kits
My Versions

 Looking forward to using it all

Tiny Twinchie Swap

Another UKS swap this time to make a set of twinchies, 2 x 2 inch square decorated cards
I completed 4 sets one orange, one green both for a rainbow swap and 2 more for anything goes.

This is a Sweet Pea Stamp coloured with ProMarkers.

The wording is an Amy Tangerine Stamp and the boarder is my first go at drawning a black and white stripey boarder for my fellow Secret Swappers.

A free stamp from Craft Stamper Magazine in the centre with some embossing from a Tim Holtz floral Stamp.

Another free Craft Stamper Stamp and some distress ink and a touch of Treasure Gold my new flavour embellisher.
Hope the other swappers like them all.
