Another freaking scrappy challenge

My daughter is a big fan of the rock band,  "Superjesus"

Their lead singer is Sarah McLeod.
Recently my daughter went to their concert and was able to meet Sarah.
This inspired my layout featuring the word, thankful.
That was one of the words of choice for Another freaking scrappy challenge
Another freaking scrappy challenge

Scrapping Outback

WHITE with Green and Blue with a touch of grey or silver 

This is the November challenge at Scrapping Outback.
I was away for the first half of the month then full steam ahead into Christmas cards and CKC stuff.
Finally, I'm finding some free scrapping time.

On my way home from USA, I managed to get a swim in  Hawaii. It was in the hotel pool.

I bought 2 stickers featuring snoopy, this one says dog paddle...appropriate for swimming.
The colours of these 2 photos leant itself to this challenge.

I've used chipboard dolphins (bought locally at a no-name brand store).
The thickers are American Craft and are also chipboard.

I also used some droplets from FWAB.
The paper is Ruby Rocket The Summerhouse.

Of course the frilly edge goes all the way around. (Why are scanners 11.5 inches ,not 12?)

Paper Issues number challenge

Finally time to scrap for myself! I've made all the Christmas cards I need to.
Anymore now will be put away for next year.

I've chosen to enter a challenge at Paper Issues.

We are asked to use numbers in the title.

On my recent trip overseas I stopped en route in Hawaii. It was just an overnight stop but well needed. On the way over I went to Waikiki beach and reminisced about being there 37 years ago.
It was just before I got married and my friend and I were having a "last fling" before we both married our chosen men.

I've used Fancy Pants "What a wonderful Day" paper.
I managed to cut a small scalloped cork strip from behind the photos.
The snoopy sticker I bought there. I punched the sun from yellow vellum and the puffy cloud and flower are from this month's Counterfeit Kit.

Freshly made sketches & sweet sketch wednesday

Here's the sketch at Freshly made sketches.
The paper I chose has trees all over it so I've gone with a natural, forest look on this card.

At Sweet Sketch Wednesday here is their sketch

And my card

The sketch File & Cards in envy

The sketch file uses a London Underground design.

I've gone OTT with bling on this one because some people like the razzle dazzle.
And if you can't go blingy at Christmas, when can you?

Cards in envy has a paper only challenge.
I used 2 punched pointsettias on green background. Everything on here is paper.

Allsorts challenge blog

My next card is for Allsorts challenge where they want glitter.
My sentiment block across the centre is on white crystal glitter paper.
I've edged it with tiny Christmas washi tape.

Cardz4guyz and Cute card Thursday.

Cardz4guyz want reindeers.
Because of the volume of cards I made to sell, I'm fresh out of reindeers.
However I did find a picture of a baby deer ,so hope it qualifies.
Think of it as a deer who hasn't grown its antlers yet.

I'm also entering in Cute Card Thursday where they want birds or animals.
