The last of the Resolutions Completed

YAAAAAYYYY!!! I finished all the resolutions over at the Lets Scrap Hoppy New Year Blog Hop. And did I have loads of fun doing it.
I set off with the intention of not buying anything new by way of scrapping stash and not printing any new pics. Well I did not do too bad at all. I only printed one set of "new " pics and only bought paper for one resolution. So all and all, I am pretty happy with myself. Let me show you the last three resolutions that I completed.

Resolution Number 13

Dawn's challenge was a cardstock only challenge. No patterned paper allowed. Everyone seemed to be embossing their paper - problem is I don't own any type of embossing tool. I put the thinking cap on and remember that somewhere long ago someone had told me about using your stamps with bleach. So I did that on one sheet of pink cardstock and then stamped and used embossing powder on the other. I had photos that I had taken of Claudia ages ago and the pink worked fine. I made my flowers from pink and brown cardstock!! I love the finished product~~~~

Resolution Number 14

What a cool challenge Tracey had worked out. The choice was either a card or a LO using 1 piece of ribbon or lace, 2 patterned papers, 3 flowers and 4 bling.
I don't normally enjoy cards as much as scrap booking and  think it has something to do with working on a smaller scale. Anyway I took a bash at the card and I love it.

Resolution Number 15

The last resolution was hosted by Amy and was a color challenge. The colors were teal, yellow and grey/silver and somewhere on your LO the word "happy" had to be included.
I had previously completed a double page LO with photos of Warrick and Kerry - Kerry claimed it to put in a frame!!!! So I had one of the photos left and it sort of worked with the colors. This is the resolution I ended up buying paper for.

I completed the LO - loaded it in the gallery AND THEN realised I had forgotten poor old "happy"....... So I quickly stamped Happy in the corner and reloaded my LO. Lesson learnt READ THE INSTRUCTIONS PROPERLY!!!!!

So that brings my Blog Hop Resolutions to an end!! Best I get stuck into some DT LO's now....hehe. Don't forget that the BLOG HOP only finishes on the 14th February. So you still have plenty of time to visit Lets Scrap and stand a chance of winning some fab prizes.

Well that's it for January - how scary is that!!!

Thanks for taking a look - feel free to leave me a comment please.
