3 LOs from a very HAPPY girl

I am soooooo HAPPY to say that I won the Scrapfactor competition over on Ukscrappers....never thought I would ever get this far and I am still wearing a very large smile :)  Thank you to everyone for all you encouraging comments and support on my blog - it has meant a lot to me and inspired me too :)  So here are my final 3 LOs - there is lots of detail over in the ukscrappers gallery and so I don't make this post toooo long I will spare you too many.  I made this mostly with crate paper papers, and behind the photo is another photo and some journalling.  It is all based around the fact that my DS loves to bring rocks home from the beach, and his first rock was too big to carry all the way back over the dunes, so we managed to persuade him with a photo of the large rock (as seen below) and a collection of crystal and fossilised rocks.  The stamps are a lovely crafty individual set - I made the fishing net out of string (still finding more uses for string in my LOs), the alphabet is Tim Holtz vintage market.

 My next LO is for my sister - I will frame it for her as this is my niece and it is a beautiful shot that she took of her.  I love butterflies so thought I could get away with lots on a girly LO, the flowers are the tim holtz rose ones - there are lots of tutorials and one on my sidebar which links you to Linda Elbourne.  The title is giggles and curls because we had recently been camping with her...and she has a mass of curly hair that I had been instructed to tame by my sister and every morning all you could hear was her and my DS giggling....still not sure what it was all about but they enjoyed themselves a lot.

 My 3rd LO is a very boy LO - I dry brushed white acrylic paint and did lots of bubble wrap printing.  I crinkled papers and stitched around them and added a subtitle - which is the bit that makes me smile about boys walking...the minute they see a small ditch or stream they have to go and jump over it several times...even if it is slightly out of their way :)

Below is a peak at a flower that I have made - it is a mixture of lots of bits and pieces I have picked up in my flower making and the LO and a tutorial that shows you how to make the flowers is over on the scraprat blog.
