Nov monthlies!!

I have nearly finished all the monthly chs at Top 50 too!!  I just have the ‘We dare you’ ch to finish off before the deadline at midnight tonight!!

Challenge 1, by Anthea, was to use stamping as the main feature to the layout, and also to include the word ‘love’!  This is what i came up with..I have used a handmade chippie button as well as some of Becci’s gorgeous crochet flowers! Smile

Challenge 2 was Sue’s Inspiration ch! We had to create a layout inspired by this cool cake pic..


and it also needed layering, so this is what i did..


(This looks much brighter IRL)

Challenge 3 was mine, but i think i forgot to put it here earlier in the month! lol!  My ch was to scraplift this gorgeous layout by Marelize!


They also needed to include at least 3 elements from the above layout.  Here is my lift..

CC Layouts..

I managed to get all but one of the Top 50 cc layouts completed this month!! Thumbs up 

The opening night mini challenge was set by our Guest DT, Linda, who challenged everybody to create a card or layout (smaller than 12x12), using the word ‘Life’ and also to include ric-rac, bling/glitter, and at least 1 button.

This is what i come up with..

enjoy life

Challenge 1 was also set by Linda, and was to create a layout using a quote by Mother Teresa,and to also include an embellishment cluster, at lease one flower and ribbon or lace…

Challenge 2 was mine, as seen in a previous post!! Smile

I was so annoyed that i didn’t get a chance to get ch 3, set by Anthea, done! Sad smile I had the photo and the papers ready, but just ran out of time! Sad smile

Challenge 4, set by Sue, was to create a layout about ‘a day in the life’ of somebody, and also to include 2 or more photos, inking and chipboard other than alphas.  Here is my entry..

My cc ch..

The 2nd main cc challenge is now up at Top50 and it is MINE!! :)  I have done something a little different this month, with the theme being 'Life As We Know It', i decided my challenge would be all about recycling! :)  You can see the challenge details here, along with the materials list for my layout, which is made entirely from recycled materials! I even dyed my op shop doiley with BEETROOT juice!! lol! :)  I hope you will give this challenge a go, it was so much fun!! :)
