Busy scrapping Day

Had an awesome day yesterday!!! Monica, Cath and Belinda came over for a fabulous day of scrapping and sewing. I even managed to get 5 layouts done :).

This first one was for the April Kraft it up challenge. The challenge was to use kraft plus a monochromatic layout, that wasn't brown.
This next one was the April sketch challenge at Scrap Therapy. I got to use the new October afternoon papers, which only landed on the weekend.This was for the Colour challenge, also at Scrap Therapy. It also uses the new October Afternoon papers, which are perfect for this challenge as it needed woodgrain paper.
THe Scrap Therapy journalling challenge was to journal about a change in your life, so I did my wedding to my gorgeous husband Rex.
Finally the technique challenge was to use Dimensional Magic. It is a fantastic product to add shine and dimension to thickers and patterned paper.

Finally The Scrap Therapy Cybercrop starts tonight!!! Blind scrap tonight with Helen, you have a choice of a layout or car, or if your keen both! Challenges also go up tonight :)

Hope to see you there :)

Everyone - Some people couldn't help moving and blogger won't let me delete it and put a better one up.
Now for my study!!! I got some bunnings vouchers for my birthday so decided to paint :)

Now I have had a few people laughing at my knitting speed lately, so just wanted to share some of it. This is a scarf I knitted in 3 days, whcih I'm prety stoked about.
These squares are the beginnings of a blanket I started when I was 10. I only have about 40 squares to go!!
