Cyber Weekend

Friday night kicked off my weekend of Cyber Cropping.
Over at Embellished there were 3 delicious challenges.
Ang set challenge 1, which was to scrap 8.5x11 with "star" in the title & embellies...now I have only ever done 1 other LO this size & I gotta say it sucks LOL....not enough to toss or anything - it's probably just my least fave LO...but I think that's beacuse I had this notion in my head that I "had" to scrap it portrait style so that it sat right in the album (an imaginary one that I don't have LOL)...but that was quite a while ago & the limitations I put on myself seem to be falling by the wayside (ever so slowly)...so I got cracking with "singstar" (the LO, not the game ;o)) & I LOVE it!
Heidi printed off the transparencies for me a while ago & they have been sitting in my stash waiting for the right moment...and now it has arrived :o)
Challenge 2 was to change the use of a coaster....I had some double-ups of pics from Harvey Norms & I had these magnet coasters sitting around for a while..now I haven't done much to them in the way of embellishing cos I didn't want to take away from the pics, so I have turned them into hanging pics instead - too cute...I showed them to Rave & said "who's this ravey" and he says "cheeky Taigy"

And for challenge 3 JulieH gave us an awesome sketch to work with and I came up with this LO of my cutie-pies wating for the train at Glenbrooke station.
a big thanks to TRACE from SE - she sent me the Rhonna Farrer rub-ons for my b'day & I have finally cracked them open :o)
While I was waiting for the crop to start I finished off my CJ entry for Karen's CJ...When I Grow Up. I might have a big share later of in the week of the entries I did (that I remembered to take pics of) oh & get this...I'm SUCH a DORK!!! It wasn't until about 2/3rds of the way through the round that it "clicked" that the pages are totally small enough to scan, so I didn't need to be waiting for decent light, fighting with flashes or anything dramatic...I tell ya the lights are on, but nobody's home sometimes!!!
Oh, I must say this round of CJs has been super-well organised, everyone has been on time- or pretty close in my case ;o). So a super huge thanks to tanyaleigh for the organisation & to Karen for hooking us up with the spreasheet/schedule - that was a life safer!
I'm really looking forward to getting mine back..no rush Michelle ;o)
Oh & while I'm on the topic of challenges...Lisa has some awesome prizes to give away this month at SBD....the monthly challenge gives you the opportunity to win some Fancy Pants stamps AND a set of Foof-a-la journalling panel rub-ons...YUM!!
And Lianne has whipped up a gorgeous sketch for the August sketch challenge...prize: $20 voucher which can be used in store (Scrapbook Studio 62 Lunn Ave Mt Wellington) or online at SBD .
You gotta be in it to win it ;o)
I'll be back later with a post about the SBO cyber crop :o)
