Basic Grey Challenge #30 and ChrisW’s challenge at Debs

Good morning everybody,

Today I made one card for two challenges.

1. Basic Grey Challenge #30

This week we would like you to take inspiration from your favourite Chocolates,
so say your favourite chocolate is Mint chocolate,
well you could then base the colours of your card on this
so your card would be Brown and Green :),
sounds scrumptious doesn’t it,
i cant wait to see you chocolate inspired creations this week,
but please don’t forget to use at least one item from Basic Grey on your creation.

2. Chris W’s challenge at her blog.

Chris hand drew this girl below

We have to use this little girl on our cards.

Aaaaaaaand, here is my take on the both the challenges.

My favorite chocolate is Turkish Delight.
So I have used Brown and Pink. Mmm Yum!!!
The Basic Grey paper I have used is from Porcelain range.
I know I should not combine two challenge which is one of the rules in BG challenge blog.
This time I a bit busy. But I do not want to not do the challenge. So I combined both.
Oh!! I just read that its only when prizes are on offer. So its OK. Yay!!

Thanks for the opportunity both BG challenge blog as well as Chris W

I am not as innocent as I look!

Ok, one more post for today.
After 4 days of not scrapping, my hands were itching to scrap.
So I managed to make a layout for Renae’s challenge at Debscreations.

Renae’s challenge rules are:

Your LO must have at least 1/3 of stamping.
You must use 3 different pattern paper
There must be no flowers on the layout.

Love the rules. Simple and room for creativity.

Here is my take on the challenge:

Materials used:

* Brown cardstock

* Scalloped White cardstock
* Olive green Bazzill cardstock which is stamped using new Prima music
stamp and handtorn into a large rectangle and inked on the edges
using Black versa Color ink
* Cosmo Cricket – more fish in the sea papers
* Hambly Print Black graph paper
* Rusty Pickle title stickers
* Computer generated journalling strips
*Tim Holtz’s Grungeboard Key hole distressed using Fire brick crackle
paint and Broken China distress ink and Black soot distress ink.
*Brads from my stash.

I enjoying making this layout because of the colors.
Thanks for stopping by

An Awesome Easter Long weekend….

Hey everybody,

How are you all doing? In Australia, we had a long Easter weekend.
I had been to Perth to visit friends.
And guess what? I met Chris W from our Challenge Chic from Debscreations.
It was such an awesome experience for me.
To see the person face to face, knowing her through the forum for a year I think!!
She is such a lovely and sweet person. Her sweet daughter drove her to the city.
Chris brought a gift bag full of awesome scrapbooking stuff. Thats very generous of you Chris. Love them. We chatted for a while over a cuppa.
My entire family got to meet her.
My DH was amazed to meet Chris and talk to her as well.
I will cherish the moment for ever because this is the first time,
I have made a friend over the internet and got to meet her face to face.
Its a whole new experience. A very good one.

Here are some photos I took.

I would love if we can meet again more leisurely and chat and scrap as well.
Thanks for coming Chris. We have a retreat at Debs creations as well.
Can’t wait to see the est of them.

I wanted to thank each and everybody who visit my blog and leave lovely comments.
I really appreciate it. Thank you so much.
