Challenges :)

Ok, so you've seen my efforts for the Box & Planner and Badge challenges, so I thought it would be kind of logical to finish of showing your my other challenges before showing you what we got up to in the classes!!

The first challenge I took part in was "The Naff Sticker Challenge"! We had to take a pack of erm, shall we say, dated, Karen Foster Stickers and make something boootiful with them. Well, my little secret is that I was going to scrap this picure of Griff with these papers anyway, but when I found this almost co-ordinating pack of cat stickers in the naff pile I was secretly quite smug about the whole affair!! And amazingly, I was voted second place :)
The second challenge I took part in was the Goodie Bag Challenge set by The Scrapbook Magazine. We each had a welcome pack on arrival, which contained these papers and the burgundy and blue cardstock and were challenged to use them in a LO. I wasn't too fussed on the papers, but they mached these photos I'd taken along perfectly - so whipped this page up quickly. I don't even like the finished result, but am glad to have two more photos from an ever-growing supply scrapped and finally broke into the Fancy Pants Biggest Ever Chipboard swirls I had for Christmas, and only used a smidge of the papers!! But by some bizarre and astonishing twist of voting fate I won second prize again.
Here are my final two entries for the other challenges I took part in - there were six challenges all together but finding the time to fit everything in between classes, chatting and eating chocolate was impossible!! I think these are my favourite LO's I made over the weekend.
I'm loving the 8.5x11 size - it feels so quick and satisfying compared to 12x12!

This was a last-minute £5 challenge, I spent a massive £2.40 including the black ink lol!
And this was for the Black & White Challenge set by Scrapbook Inspirations:
More pics to follow tomorrow - classes up next!!!

They are all gorgeous Nat! I really love the black and white one of your Mum and Ellie though. So delicate and pretty :o)

Well done on the use of the 'naff' stickers. You've made them look totally not naff at all hehe.

Those are all really nice LOs. I agree with the other commenters that the B&W one is really lovely. Very emotional, nostalgic, and sweet.
