So She Scrapped!!!

Yeps, I am definitely on the mend **yaaay** As I said before, complaining about leg cramps I'm sure sounded really sooky and weak - but it hurt!!! LOL But today's been a lot better!! I could actually sit in a chair and pout my feet to the ground with minimal fuss!!!! The last few days that would have seen me in tears from the severe cramps - so yep, getting better ;)

And so I scrapped :) My fingers have been itchy, my brain on hyper-drive and it was sooooo good to get something together!!!! :)

I don't know if this LO will be used for a competition or not as it was too late to qualify for the RES A Happy, Scrappy New Year challenges - it does fit in with a SBT50 challenge... but I'll see what happens... If I run out of time I might use it for SBT50.... I'll see LOL

Anyhoos... Here's what I did today!!!

Challenge Six
challenge requirements

* Create a LO using the lollypop flowers you created in challenge three (The individual lollypops will be shown after the LO)
* Interpret CLUE and incorporate this Bonus Item

Our New Tradition

My 3 lollypops are cherries in the tree. I drew and hand cut the tree, painted it with twinkling H2O's (same paints used to colour the chippy leaves) The background is from the MME holly jolly range. I've covered it in watered down glue and tissue-papered it (I really LOVE this effect!!!) I've then stitched leaves into the background and grass beneath the tree.



As for the lollypops....

Challenge Three
challenge requirements

* Make 3 lollypops for a later challenge.
* Interpret CLUE and include bonus item into your challenge elements.

My lollypops are made from 3 mostly red quilting fabric with some Christmas fabric foil netting in-between the layers.


  1. Glad to hear you are feeling well enough to scrap again! Great looking LO Treens, I so love those lollipop flowers! (I don't know how you can scrap something and then decide later what it is going to be used for, I have to decide before I even start! LOL) XXX

  2. This LO is just so clever Treens, I love your ideas and how it all came together.
    Dont ever doubt your ability or creative flair or style, remember it's a reflection of YOU. And you do have many fans, keep it up :-)

  3. Aww thanks Sue and Helen :) I never thought of me having 'fans' before - that is really surreal!!! LOL Yep, I guess I can say my work is reasonably unique haha Or (here you go Sue) ECLECTIC :P hehehe that's me :)
