Challenges x 2 : )

Welllllllll I have my zest for scrapping back!!! I've been getting stuck into some challenges...and here's 2 lo's I've finished....both are for challenge blogs I've never played at before.....

Firstly...A lo for Show Us Your Stuff 
You have to use an Awesome sketch by the FAB Miss Shell and of course you have to include something handmade......


And here's my take on it...A lo about my GORGEOUS Husband and BEAUTIFUL Son....



Close-up....And a shout out to my Lubbly Mum who bought me a whole bunch of scrappy bits's for chrissy....included the yummy chippy cogs I used on this lo : )




The next Lo is for The Studio Challenges.....you have to scrap lo about "hindsight"
The title of my lo is "Oh how I wish I Learned too....Just be Me (alot sooner).....Instead of trying to be someone else....
I really wish I had learnt that lesson alot earlier on in life.....I always thought to "fit in" and be liked I had to be like everyone else...when in fact it's myself that I need and should be : )



Now thats my kinda frock.....



Thanks to you indeedy for having a sticky beak at my crazy scrapping : )
Love and Peace xox
