This was an Explosion box with a difference. The instructions can be found at http://www.craftweekly.com/ it's called Surprise Box With Flair. We were asked to make one as a challenge on Carolines Craftz forum for the National Scrapbooking Day and I'm really impressed on how it turned out. I gave this one to my mum for a birthday present and she was impressed. I can see myself making another as they are fun and make great gifts.
Below is my paperbag book I made useing a kit from Carolinez Craftz. It was well worth the money and I got some epoxy stickers left, brads and a sheet of blue card left and I didn't use the glitter or tabs or all the yarn either. Oh and there was also paint too that I didn't use either.
This book shows Connor having his first big boy bath. I really loved using this kit. And think the photos came out well though they don't show too great on here.
I made this card for my Dad's Birthday using left over bits from Sarah's boy maze book class that I did a while back. I used my Sugar Nellie Pirate Stamp and coloured the image in using Sukura glaze and Glitter pens. I hope my Dad likes it.

I know I said I wouldn't do anymore digi scrapping today but found myself drawn back to my laptop and creating this LO using Dawn Inskips cat and mouse kit. the photos are of Kovous as a kitten with all her other brother and sisters and mum (shes one of the ginger ones) sadly all the kittens died apart from Kovous and for some reason no one wanted to take her on and the owner was moving to some where she couldnt have cats so even though were not allowed cats i couldnt resist takeing her on, especially as she was going to get put down if no one took her which i thought was a real shame especially as she thought the odds to survive out of a whole litter.

I was naughty spent some more money when I'm supposed to be saveing but its not all that bad as it was about a fiver I couldn't resist I bought Dawn Inskip's Weather Station kit and her newest one Cat and Mouse which I intend to have a play with over the weekend.
The layout I have for you all today is using the Weather Station kit, think my LO needs a bit more improving but not sure what todo. The two photos are of outside our window when we had a really cool snow storm a couple months back.
Thankyou for looking

well here's another LO using Dawn's Evitangel kit and Kalidoscope kit which was realeased to buy a little while ago. Wasn't sure I liked the way the LO was turning out but seeing the end result I'm quite pleased with it. The photo is of my Fiance and our 3 boys.

Just a quick one this morning, spent last night digi scrapping again and came out with this LO using photos of Oscar down Park Walk playing with the leaves. I used Dawn Inskip's Kit again. I really have fallen in love with it, the possibilities really are endless.

Well I keep saying I'm going to keep up with my blog and then time gets the better of me so its a while before I post again. well then again it's better to have more in a post than just one pic don't you think.
First up is one from a class put together by Paula, changed quite a bit to suit my needs for the layout though. The photos are of Oscar just learnt to roll over and trying to begin to crawl. The photo was taken at Longleat in the Park bit.
Next up is a layout using some left over papers and using a class as inspiration as the class was in pink and I wanted something to go with the photos of my Dad holding Connor his third grandson.
Next up is a layout done for Caroline's Patterned Paper Challenge. I used left over bits of paper that I used for Connor's in the mix book I did a little while ago. The papers were cut in to 1 inch squares and glued them on to 12x12 white cardstock. The photos are of each of my boys as newborns. seems so long ago now.
Now for something different and something I haven't done in a while and that is a digi LO. I used Dawn Inskips newest kit called Evitangel which let me just say is fantastic. I really can't wait to able to get a new printer as I really would like to try my hand at Hybrid Scrapping and Dawn's Kits are absolutly fantastic. And for plenty of inspiration or to see what new kits are on the way have a look at her fantastic blog, I love it, its so colourful and I absolutly adore her headers which she changes every now and then. I'd love one for this blog but havent a clue how to do one. I only use Photoshop Elements 5.0 and am teaching my self which is real slow.
But here's the LO and the photo is of Oscar learning to crawl. Same photo as I used in one of the above LO's
Last of all to show you all is my first ever paper bag book. This was a class put together by DT member Louise for the November Cyber Crop. I've still got to make some bits for the pockets but as I'm supposed to be on a stash diet I'm going to wait. It still looks good to me. I have so much left in my November cyber crop kit from Carolinez Craftz and there are lots of classes too that i still want to do. Hope one day I will complete everything I want to do lol
Thankyou for takeing a look and thankyou for everyones comments for previous posts I love reading them.
