Scraplift the DT

Number 6 challenge at ATDML asked us to pick a LO by one of the DT team from the May or June DT gallery. It was a bit of a no brainer really. I had spent only the previous weekend watching the lovely talented Ann Freeman make some of her beautiful Layouts and admiring not only her talent but the time she manages to finish her layouts in. In fact I spent quite a bit of time ribbing her that she had completed three times the amount I had, (mainly out of jealousy since they were still better than mine).This is the LO I chose to lift

And here is my take on it. Thank you Ann

Challenge 3

I all but finished this double LO at the weekend. It was for the Read all about it' challenge at ATDML. The challenge was to make the journalling the focus of the LO. The problem was that although I knew exactly how I wanted the LO it involved the use of a white gel pen, and hunt high or low I just could not locate mine. I thought I was going to have to go out and buy another one before I could complete the challenge but making a card yesterday I decided to use my old zip-e-mate to cut out some nestabilities and as I moved the machine, there was my gel pen staring up at me.The LO still isnt as I really wanted it, I had originally ment to have the players names in line with the photos but unfortunately just as I went to stick them on I knocked my can of 7UP all over the desk, so in the words of 10 cc, the name card 'hides a nasty stain thats laying there', as does the last min addition of the guiness world record symbol.

Stamp your feet

I am just finishing off the rest of the challenges from the cyber crop at ATDML last weekend. This one asked us to use our stamps on a project. I used my very old (actually the first ever set of stamps I bought) stampendous alphabet stamps to make the title page of my mini album to house my jubilee photos once they are through processing.
