Challenge YOUrself & White With One February Challenges:

Hullo there! I've been blessed to meet a scrapping girl who lives close by
who likes to pop on over and scrap with me. Which means while she's
working away, I have a bit of time to scrap myself!


That 'swoosh' of chocolate ink pad on the bg? An idea from Sian F, when
she created this LO HERE.
And then, I was looking at this ad & decided it would make a good sketch:
Can you see it? Ooops! Might have used the inspiration photo as a 
stamp-off & do those markers work which thickness do I want
place, too;)!!!! ANYWAYS. What I'm saying is using inspiration
from various sources can help that mojo:)
 I had completely overlooked the fact I had NOT scrapped Lucas's
birthday from May 2015. BAAAD Ma!!!

Meanwhile, over at CHALLENGE YOURSELF:
I find these words hard. But this one didn't take much thinking at all.
And it fits this year of travel & simply enjoying being with my DH
& my grand boys & my friends....I reckon I should TREASURE
each moment. So, I will do my most to follow that thought
That's my thoughts. Used a host of pink ink sprays to create splots
& some circle-ish shapes!
I've seen a few peeps use those diagonal corners & really liked
the effect. The 'treasure' is my writing, then cut using my
Brother Scan N Cut:
I never thought I'd use the clock flair...but it fitted perfectly
here! From Jennifer Grace's shop HAPPY SCATTERS.
Flamingo. Fits too, I think! Thanks Jo R for those stickers, LOVE them!
And finally, some Dusty Attic chippy also sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
Hope something here sparks some inspiration for you guys!
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥


  1. Oh Lizzy you crafty wizard friend, you. I adore the fact that you took a magazine advert and translated it into a sketch.
