Milestone Birthdays

Good Morning, We have a new challenge today at My Time to Craft, the challenge is:

Milestone Birthdays

This is the first page of a scrapbook card I am making for my eldest Granddaugther Zoe who will reach the age of 13 in a couple of weeks, so she  will officially become a teenager!!!   I thought it would amuse her to see photo's of her growing up.  The page has been made using Craft Artist.

Alphabet Challenge

Good Friday Morning to you, time for the fortnightly challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog where this we we are up to the letter:

O for One Colour plus white

I have made a simple card with an old greeting label by Red Hot Bed which I have had in my stash for ages. A pieces of lace threaded with lilac ribbon, a bow and some pearls. Sorry for the picture quality but I just couldn't get a good photo, think it's because so much white was reflecting!

Why not join in our challenge this week, there is some great inspiration over on the challenge blog.
