A few more challenges for August 2015:

   
I thought this sketch was way outta my comfort zone. But I've given it a go,
using square photos [3]. LOOOVE that door knob! Shabby chic seemed
to call me!
 The paper is BoBunny, but covered in Gesso with 'runs' of distress ink to mimc
a wood look.
 For my banner, I used pearls, string, then hung some flowers and keys off them.
The muslin added some softness.

Oh! I did enjoy pulling out some VERY old photos for this one!
AND I got to use big banners behind the photos. I've wanted to do that
for ages!!
 1997. Journaled about how I used to volunteer at the Mission to Seafarers, 
where Tom was Principal Chaplain - & how us ladies got to serve tea on a LOT
of occasions, to Princess Anne on one special day, no less!!!!
Thank you Lizzy C for those glorious butterflies:)

I was really excited to do this challenge. Fussy cutting is my FAVE
activity. Dripping with sarcasm, is that statement.
BUT I stamped some teensy owls from an old Stampin' Up set,
and FUSSY CUT THEM!!!!!!!!!
PPPFFFFTTT!!!!
Luckily, my cute Grand Boy Ollie made up for such madness!!!


See how sweet he is???!!! Biased MUCH!!!!
That's it for this lot! I'll be back in a jiffy with the last lot of challenges for the month!
Once again, scheduled. My life is a busy schedule, so I'm glad blogger lets
me work ahead of myself;)
Blessings ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  20. not sure where your comfort zone is cause all 3 of these are fabulous! I came for the Keep Calm and got much more-fantastic pouring and love that layout since I love all things butterflies ( I woulda been nervous hehe)- but love the others too for all the embellishments, the handcutting of the owls (baby is adorbs) and the stories behind them. kate (CY)

  25. I had all sorts of intelligent comments until I got to the last page with those green letters and that ducky baby! Then my brain shut down due to the cuteness and those green letters made me warm and happy...so you will just have to imagine all the awesome things I was going to say on the first two pages...It's not my fault..but at least you saved the Ollie page for the very end..could have warned me tho!
