Annas Craft Cupboard Birthday Cyber Crop Layouts!

Hello there! I hope your day is going well... The days here have been glorious!!

I thought I would share some layouts I created for Annas Craft Cupboard Birthday Cyber Crop which was held several weeks ago now.. They had amazing challenges and we had a week to get them done..  It was a good time, and I enjoyed just seeing if I could scrap a bit quicker than I usually do and get them done!

The first one was a Moodboard..
Image may contain: textSo soft and pretty!! And my take on it..

The second challenge was an ingredient challenge..
Image may contain: text and food And my take on that one..

The third challenge was a party hat...  hehe.. I was not a good party hat maker!!!

Image may contain: text
 my creation!!

 Sigh, I laugh when I look at this...

The fourth challenge was A blind Crop..
Image may contain: textThese are the things we needed and we were given instructions to follow to create our layout.. And this is how mine turned out..

The fifth challenge was to create a Birthday card..

Image may contain: text 
and my card..

The sixth challenge was a Tic Tac Toe challenge..
Image may contain: textI used Texture paste, cardstock and water color for my layout...

And the seventh challenge was a scraplift..

Image may contain: text I choose a lovely layout by Lisa which looked like..

 I love how Lisa creates her layers under the photo and the white space.. I rotated the design once anti clockwise for my design to work better with my photo.. and my layout...

So there you have my creations. which were a lot of fun to create, the ladies who also joined in were wonderful, the design team were amazing..  I think I shall try and join in again next year!!

Well thanks for coming by, and thank you too for the lovely comments you leave me to read..  Take care of yourself...xx

I am putting up the challenge for this month for 123 CHALLENG BLOG which is a good one and it is..
To use some Teal color on your layout, as well as the word FAMILY and do some stenciling...

 and some closer views of my layout..

 Stencilling, and I found some way old papers that had brown and teal so I went with that for my colors..

All the chipboard I have used is from Scrapmatts..

This is my Husbands side, and I am not going to say which ones are the 'nuts' !! hehe..
