November Tag Swap

The theme for November's tag swap was "washi tape".
I'm not a huge fan of it so, my tags were fairly simple this month.
Stamps, ink, Stickles, game spinners & butterflies all Tim Holtz.

Fireworks over Shelter Cove Marina, HHI.

My example for the UK Scrappers November week 1 challenge that RosieMac and I set this week.
The criteria: use the sketch, 5 letters in the title and fireworks/bling somewhere on the page.
Linking this post to the Sarah Hurley Challenge #74
"Fireworks and Colours!"


A recent Design Team  project for It’s Crafting Time called for me to use this interesting pair of Twiddleybitz Fancy Corners.

I recently changed the header image on my Normandy Life blog to a photograph of our home taken by the Senior Partner using the ipad.
I thought it would make a great subject for a scrapbook LO.

Materials used:
Twiddleybitz Fancy Corners, inked with Adirondack ColorWash -  Lettuce and given a shabby look using Distress Ink - Fired Brick and a dull gold pigment from stash.

Basic Grey “Hello Luscious” background paper & DCWV “Old World” Textured Mat under photo.
The frame and other embellishments & alphas from stash.

Scrapping again!

We're back from our wonderful vacation in Hilton Head, SC and despite chronic jet lag I have managed to do some scrapping this week.

Halloween 2007 and my Dad's 80th birthday
celebrated here in Normandy.
This Halloween themed LO was my take on October's Scrap-A-Sketch challenge.
