I was, of course, really behind again and I'd been asked to do some last minute babysitting so I hastely packed up my stash again and headed out. I quickly put the kids in front of a video (as instructed by the parents who were just grateful I'd said yes at all) and set up in the study next to the lounge so that I could get on with things. And then disaster!! I had forgotten my patterned paper :( So for the rest of the evening I tried to work with what I had. I did have a pre prepared kit for the 10pm class 'Partners in Crime' by JenniF so was at least able to put this together, although I didn't have a printer with me so could only ready the photo. The top I was wearing in the photo was green, but not lime green so I converted it to B&W and then put the green back into all the plants. It all came together when I got home and was able to print it out, and there are some techniques there that I will definatley use again.
Shimelle's 7pm challenge was to use the kit to make as many things as possible. I was a little disappointed because I really love her work and love learning things from her. I also loved the kit and was looking forward to doing something special with it. In the end I made a few cards for the points and decided to do something special with it when I had more time.
Then it was back to the classes that I'd missed. 'The Da Vinci Code' by Ifa being the first. I didn't have watercolours so I improvised with it and came up with 'St Lucia'. I loved the LO idea and am pleased with the result. The only thing I didn't like was when I was doodling the edges of the paper I smudged the writing on the label across the white cardstock so I removed the label and put a longer one over the smudge. It looks a little weird out on a limb though so I will revisit it and add some more elements to make it work better (I hope!).
The challenges were;
And finally the 'Scrap your day finale' digi LO from Shimelle which I really struggled with, having never done it before and not having instructions to follow. I managed to get two photos uploaded ready to complete for 2009.
Not a bad haul :) In the end I had 1025 points for the FBI, which is 225 more than last CC and I did the MK that time around!
