Cyber Crop Over :(

Well for another month, but I was able to *squeeeeze* in the last challenge 25 minutes before closing time!!! LOL talk about last minute!!! It was a great CC - lots of different things to try too :) All about food - of course I had lots of birthday photo's to scrap so that pretty much dominated my LO's... Here's what I created!!!

Challenge #1 - Kids in the Kitchen:

1. the use of ink and/or texta (There is stamping on the recipe card, the bottom right hand journalling has been written in black texta as well)
2. Staples (yeps, in the distressing on the edges of the page)
3. hidden journalling (Under the recipe card are the details about the LO and some mini photo's of and the recipe's that Aleks cooked that day)
4. paper rolling or curling technique(do you see the little spoon and fork? Their handles are rolled, I made them out of PP)

the case of the Killer Kebabs




Aleks chose what he wanted for the title of this page - he decided as he was cooking they had to be "Killer Kebabs" "killer" is one of his new phrases - ahh pre-teen boys!!!!

Challenge 2 - Recipe Scrap:

For this one we had to use the following 'recipe'

1 sheet cardstock
2 word title
3 photos
4 patterned papers
5 buttons

Turning Two



Challenge 3 - Made with Love:

This page has been scrapped using the recipe that nan hand wrote more then 50 years ago into her recipe book. It's the cake she would bake for every Christmas, boil to turn into everyone's Christmas puddings and used to bake for everyone's wedding (mine included) It's a very very precious recipe to me - if not my family. I'm very blessed to have had it passed on to me when nan passed away and will be using it to continue the tradition of baking this cake for my family Smile It's a little fragile piece of paper that is filled with a lot of love and memories xxx

* Patterned paper as a base (MME Life Stories "roses")
* At least 2 flowers (lots there Smile)
* Some distressing (the calico under the recipe has been torn and inked, There is tearing on the music paper and inking on the journalling card.)
* An embellishment cluster (yeps - with the added charm under the green brad - it's the word "love")

I added the journalling and photo of nan as hidden items to not detract from the importance of the recipe. And on the back of the photo is a bit of journalling to say what was happening in the actual photo. The calico has been included as the puddings nan would make from the recipe were always boiled in calico and hung to dry (strung on a broomstick in between two chairs in her kitchen!!!) and I chose roses for the pattern on the paper as they were nan's favourite flower - she was so proud of her rose garden

The Little Things (are often the best)






Challenge 4 - Hamburger with the LOT!

For this one we had to chose 4 items from several common hamburger ingredients listed HERE and then when the challenge was issued (about a week later) we had to use the elements that these ingredients stood for... Hard to explain but if you check out the above link it'll make sense ;) Anyhoos, My 'hamburger' elements were:

Lettuce - tear/distress (PP torn, Orange beside photo has been sanded and fabric has been ripped and left thready)
Onion - glitter (title Alphas, page has been 'glimmered')
Bacon - fabric/felt (border of image and on top left hand corner has fabric strips) and
Pickle - something green (background of PP and ribbon under image both green)

The poem that I've used on the LO reads:

A One-year-old child is so many things --
A tiny discoverer of butterfly wings,
A hugger of Teddies,
A sweet sleepyhead,
And someone to dream for in bright years ahead...




This piccie is from Dommy's cake smash - it's also my avatar for the month.

So there you have it, another Cyber Crop over, the next on I'll be Guest Design Team member!!! Woohoo - I'm really looking forward to it :) Roll on September - then again, maybe not, it's another month closer to Christmas!!!! ROFL
