LO # 61 & 62 & Cards to share

A card for Debs May/June card challenge.

A card for one of our tyre reps that just had a baby.

MAD Cybercrop challenge using a colour combo from the song 'I can see a rainbow' I chose red and yellow (obviously!!)

MAD cybercrop challenge by Sarah to complete a page that included a rainbow. Could have been in the title or papers or even in the journalling, but I have had this photo printed out for years of this wicked double rainbow, taken in Harrietville on a memorial run in 2008. It amazed me how it changed the colour of the sky under it, it just glowed! I just needed a little push to scrap it, thats why I love doing challenges, cos it pushes you to try things that you wouldn't normally do.

MAD cybercrop challenge by Mel B was to make a bright outdoor theme card to go along with the cybercrop theme - 'Over the rainbow'

This one taken in the shade.

Layout 2 for my class

Rescrapped and photo taken in the sun..

and photo taken in the shade.

These were my layouts for my class at Scraphappys on Friday night. Had a great night (apart from the FOGGY long drive home!!) I rescrapped my layouts in different papers (using Lisa k's

wonderful kits), amazes me the whole different look you get! Also had to show the difference when I took the photos in the sun and then in the shade to how the colours are so different....I always take multiples when I take them and pick the better ones. They were taken about 50cm apart on the front verandah.... Not much happening today....Krystal took a fall at Netball yesty and hurt her ankle, they suspect it may be a partially torn archilles? If its still swollen and sore tomorrow, we will get it checked out. Still holding my breathe until tomorrow when I find out if I got the job I went for....hoping, hoping....Let ya know tommorrow. Outa here....Pauly xx
