And one more for the road ...

Our final challenge of the year ...

Document something that makes you or a member of your family happy.  It could be a sport or a hobby.  Perhaps it is a particular food you relish or a time of the day.  Maybe you enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine after a hard day or simply sitting in a favourite spot reading.  Whatever makes you happy we'd like to see it !!

My son likes to swim - he's been doing this since he was a baby and now swims at a high level and competes at carnivals throughout our region and in Sydney.  A normal squad training session lasts two hours and he will swim an average of three and a half kilometers.  He loves it - it is his way of de-stressing after a hectic and brain draining day at school.
  I go weak at the knees just thinking about it!

Christmas Colours Cyber Crop ...

Well scrappy friends we have come to the last cyber crop for this year, and we thought we would celebrate the colours of Christmas.

Do you have a modern tree, or are you like me,  and prefer the more traditional colours of red, green and gold?
Traditional  vs  Modern
which one are you?

Challenge #1 -  Traditional

Let's use some traditional colours on your project - think, red, green, yellow and any variations in between.  I'd like to see some chipboard on your page and I'd like to see you alter it in some way - ink it, stamp it, paint it, cover it in patterned paper - no plain chipboard allowed!  Mine has been inked in Versa Colour Scarlett.

Challenge #2 -  Modern

I have a Modern Colour challenge, Blue, White and Silver.  It needn't be a Christmas photo, but these colours must dominate your page.



Challenge #3 -  Those bits and pieces

Do you like using up scraps?  Keep a box of bits and pieces somewhere close?  Hate throwing out even the smallest pieces of patterned paper?  You are not alone !  Pull them out and put them to use in creating some fast and easy Christmas cards.  Use traditional colours or modern colours or be adventurous and use them both together. 

These are left over pieces from the Echo Park - For the record range mounted on kraft cardstock.

You have a full week plus, to scrap these challenges, upload them to our gallery and be in the winning for a store voucher or a pack of lovely goodies for being the DT pick.

And don't forget to stop by our Facebook chat group over the weekend - there just may be a game or two happening with the odd prize being thrown your way ;)

Due date Sunday, 20th December - Midnight
Happy scrapping !!
