Cyber crop Weekend

Uproar2scrapmore is having cybercrop now. The theme is RETRO.

I can hear you all Noooo Nooooo. I was like “I hate those color combinations”. I was not very thrilled about it but I always love challenges. I also do not have many black and white photos from 10 years ago. Everyting is with my parents at home!!! Anyway, after a short convincing chat with Dalena from Uproar, I decided to participate.The fun part is the games, chat and also the specials Dee puts up during cybercrop.

The first challenge was an OTP (for those of you who are wondering, “what an OTP is”?…. It is Off The Page). Use vinyl LP, green and pink colors, lots of layering using embellishments, Pps and finally the word RETRO in the title!!

I had so much fun on this one. I used Elton John’s 1960s photos on it. Lots of bright green and pink and bling (specially for Elton!!!lol!!). I loved it. Here it is for you

Then the next one was an OTP too. Ohhh NO!! was my first reaction because I did not have a box or a tin at home. My DD was kind enough to let me use her money box. Thanks sweetie. Mwah Mwah!! Anyway, I used lots of felt on it and covered it with flowers and a ribbon. My flavour of the month is my circle cutter. I am loving it. Used it to cut the photo of my DD’s face and stuck it on the money box. Initially when I was covering it with the felt, she was like “Mmmmum!! the Barbie is covered’. But once I finished it with her photo on it, she was excited and loved it. Here it is for you ………..

Now off to do a layout. this is going to be tough because I have to have an original B/W photo from 30 years ago. I am going hunting……….. Will catch you later.

Here are the pictures of my layouts

This is from a sketch on stuck sketches and I just hate to see my DD sick. So i have use one of her photos where she was starting to have fever and made a LO

This is Tinky the parrot I am baby sitting. I loved the punched out circles which matches the parrot colors.

Thanks for looking!!

I could not update yesterday. Not because I did not have anything but I did not have the time. Well the parrot I am looking after, started liking me too much that she wanted to have a taste of me!!!!! She started biting my ears and initially it was ticklish but later she started biting hard. I had to put her into her cage and she had a time out the whole day yesterday for her bad behaviour.
I was feeling bad for doing that . Therefore I created a layout with her picture. Will upload soon. The layout was part of Chris W’s challenge in Rules are to use circles or squares or any shape with a diameter of not more than an inch! Seemed difficult initially. So made a card first but then I stuck with an idea yesterday looking at Tinky the parrot’s photo and instantly started making one.

I also made another layout from a sketch on stucksketches. I just loved the basic Grey’s Urban Couture collection. Wish I had some more of it.

What else did I do yesterday. Aaaa I spent some money shopping in salvation army preparing for this weekend’s Uproar2scrapmore cyber crop challenge. Bought a Vinyl LP and then found some crochet stuff and lace too. So picked them up. You know there will always be some extra stuff to buy other than what we intend to buy!!!!!!!!!

On the way back I saw some very nice blue thread work on white tops in Kmart. I will probably buy some today. I love the white tops, just goes with anything. Kmart stuff is not too good but ok to wear for one season summer. I do not mind. Will have a look in other shops as well. Problem is everything in every shop looks nice.
My SIL bought me a very nice pale pink parsley design dress in US. I have to buy a bolero for it. I am on a lookout for a good pale pink or white bolero… Do not know when and where I will get it.

Got to go now. Will load some more pictures tonight. Time for lunch!!!
