I'm still enjoying finishing off some of the projects I started at Scrapstars a couple of weeks ago. One of the highlights was Saturday Night Takeaway - we were each given a mystery bag and then before we opened the bag, we could choose a piece of 12"x12" cardstock in either black or white (I chose black, just to be contrary!).
We were then given a couple of hours to create a project using only these items. Trina and I do not "do" spontaneous scrapping, and by this time we had a couple of glasses of wine on board, so we slightly panicked at this point, but we had so much fun with this in the end :o)
Here's my page, which features a picture of my brother Ivan with his little girl Alice ...
The takeaway bag contained some lovely 6" patterned papers, black ricrac and buttons,chipboard flowers and a pin. We were allowed the "usual suspects" - pens, glue, punches, stamps and such.
The best bit of all was when Trina's page WON THE CHALLENGE!! Wooo HOOOO :o) Trina if you're reading this, please send me a pic so I can add it to this post.
Scrapstars was SO much fun, a totally brilliant weekend was had by all - and it really got my scrappin mojo going again :o)
Thanks for visiting my blog today, see you again soon!
