Imaginisce and SUYS Challenges!!

So...I've been away for a few days, for my brothers wedding, and came home to find my scheduled posts didn't go up!!! Grrr...computers just don't like me! So before I share some of the photos I took at the wedding (where Jack and Em were page boy and flower girl!!) I'll play a bit of catch up...

First up is the Imaginisce January Challenge!! Instead of a sketch this month, the challenge is to alter somthing that you've got laying around the house. I thought this was an awesome challenge, and here's what I came up with...



First, I found this old Prima flower container, and I knew straight away that I wanted to turn it into a pencil holder for Emily...


Pretty cute, huh? I used the Enchanted collection for this, and have finally used the little dragon chipboard that I was hoarding...



I blinged the top and bottom strips with the I-rock, and for the top of the pencil holder I punched the patterned piece with an I-top punch, and then added and I-top brad for the centre...and finished it off with a touch of bling from the I-rock...


Now, for your chance to win an AMAZING Imaginisce prize, make sure you head over to the Imaginisce blog right now, and check out all the other dt creations!! You can also take part in the challenge, for another chance at winning a fabulous prize!!

And also for the 1st of the month, Show Us Your Stuff has a new challenge up. Here's the sketch...


And here's my layout...


This month we were given some gorgeous Pretty Petals to play with - the yellow felt flower (so yummy and dimensional) and the blue tissue paper flower. Of course I just had to add a Purple Pumpkin spotty button to the centre of it!


And there's another Purple Pumpkin button on here too, that cute lil mushroom!


I just love the photos of Emily on this layout. It was her birthday, the last day of school before the Easter hols, and she had an Easter bonnet parade. She was so happy!!


Well, I think I'll leave it there for now!! I could just go on forever, I have so many cute photos of the kids to share, and my 10 fave layouts for 2010, but I will be back with all that tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a fabulous day!
