Bon's Dec Cybercrop

Well I managed to get one challenge done for Bon's cybercrop this month and I did it last minute at that! It was a scraplift challenge and we had to use up some old alphas in our stash to make this great background effect.

December 1,2,3

So I have finally completed a 1,2,3 challenge. The December challenge was to use the word 'Oh', the colour pink and the technique of tissue paper. I used a 20x25 canvas to create on. This is the first time I've done something like this so I am pretty happy with the result. Even better I was at the shops yesterday and Riot had 50% off all canvases so I stocked up on some more!

Some close ups!

Final for 2010

Well it's December and that brings the last cybercrop at Chookscraps for this year! I have completed 2 of the challenges so far and am participating in the chatting competition, pretty sure I won't be the outright winner but there is a random participation prize to be won!

I have much cooking to consider for all the Christmas festivities this coming week so scrapping is getting a little break, will see if I get time to do the other 2 challenges before midnight tomorrow.

I am still waiting on DM to dry on my scraplift but here is the first challenge I completed, using our engagement photoshoot photos at last!

Oh Baby!

Well, I am thrilled to say I have been officially asked to throw my brother's girlfriend her baby shower. They don't know the gender so I was thinking of recycling some of the bunting from my Engagement Party and having a brightly themed baby shower as well. Red, yellow and orange aren't too girly yeah?

This is the inspiration board I have come up with so far. Got a bit excited and put this all together and haven't discussed with the mum to be yet! Any great baby shower ideas out there?

More Baking

So, I have managed a bit of baking recently... I got the melting moment recipe from Taste. This was the second time I have made them and I believe the consistencey and everything was better this time. Although the recipe says it makes 25 and at the size I made them (not huge) it only made 9. Might be doubling it next time!

These, below, were made by my friend who was using up the leftover ganache from our engagement cakes. Just made some shortcrust pastry, blind baked and then put the ganache in. I contributed by making the little toothpick flags from leftover card from the engagement party!
