Let's Scrap - 3-23-11

Ok so I know I have have been on a Colour Challenge bender lately but I stumbled across another fantastic site the other day called Let's Scrap.  This site offers sketch challenges.  I must admit - I have never done a sketch challenge before.  This happened to be my first one.  I rather enjoyed it!

This is the sketch this week

This is what I have created for this weeks challenge.

This is my take on the first page of the Double Page LO.  I have used this LO to showcase photos from Mackenzie's 3rd birthday.  I made her a Tinkerbell cake for her birthday because she loves Tink at the moment (as does her mum).  I have used the colours from her cake as the colours for this LO

I cut the title out using my Cricut Expression Machine - with the Cindy Loo cartridge.  I am really enjoying my Cricut machine........... it is still a relatively new toy to me and I am still learning all about it.  The latest thing that I am learning is the Cricut Design Studio - what a fantastic addition to the Cricut range.
My other obsession at the moment is PRIMA - I just LOVE Prima!!!!!  I have used a number of Prima flowers on this LO.

I used my Cricut to cut out the pink doily background for both of these pages as well.  It is quite an event in my house when the Cricut is in use - the kids and Malcolm are intrigued with how it can do what it does.  So when the Cricut starts cutting it gets an audience.  It is actually rather cute.  I have also used it to cut out the "3 Today" title.

This is a handmade Lace flower that I made using lace that cost me 25cent per metre (only used about 30cms) and 1 Prima jewelled centre.  I just love this flower - this photo really doesn't do it justice.
All up this flower cost less then 50cents which I think is just fantastic :-)

Another shot of the flowers - I also used some crochet lace on this LO that I think cost about $1 per metre and I used less then half a metre.  I think it adds a nice touch to the LO.

This is both pages of the LO together.  I really like the way that it turned out. 

This is a close up of the flowers on the first page.  There is also a bit of bling included that I put together myself using individual rhinestones
