Cyber crop

This weekend I participated in the Scrapbooking Memories Cyber crop. I got 5 layouts done. I'm not overly impressed with any of them but they all meet the set criteria so I guess I'm happy with that. I'm also happy that I got another 5 done. It's 5 more stories I've told and I had a great time doing it too.
Sister love challenge was set by Bella to create a layout with the following criteria:
Use die-cut cardstock as the base - buy a ready-made shape or cut one out yourself
Use only black and white paper or cardstock colours
Use photos that make a strong connection between the past and the present
Use button clusters to accentuate journaling.

Watch your smile bloom was a challenge from Buzz and Bloom.
The challenge is to create a layout using hot pink, orange, polka dots and use either ‘buzz’ or ‘bloom’ in your title

Outside was a challenge by Kaisercraft was to use the sketch. I was lucky enough to have Kaisercraft patterned paper.
The others were sketch challenges too. I liked the sketch challenges as they weren’t so challenging but the challenge of the others was also very rewarding.

Anyway, enjoy. I’m off to bed so I can get up and swim 3kms in the morning. How exciting. Well it is. It is so good to clear my head and feel like I’ve done something by 7am but it is just the thought of getting out of bed at 5:45am in the freezing cold I don’t like. And 120 laps is rather daunting. 102 laps this afternoon!! I’m going well. My size 14 jeans don’t fit any more. That’s a bonus.

Your pages are great Amity. You should have won something just for the degree of dificulty to do anything out here with the limited supplies!! Good on you for having a go. Maybe I will join you sometime in a cyber crop.

Amity - your pages are still great looking at them the 2nd time around! I too had so much fun creating. Whilst I am not in the league of other scrappers on the weekend, I feel I acheived alot and really tried out new things - which made it worth it for me. Look forward to seeing more of your Los and your beautiful family.

Amity, the LO's you did for the CC are fabulous! Isn't it great to get so many done in one weekend? I am so disappointed I had to go away and missed out, looks like you girls had heaps of fun.
Also, love the pics of the kids - gorgeous!!!
