    September Week 4

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    When I lose my mojo I always use a sketch to get me back in to scrapping so I would like you to use the following sketch:

    Attachment 190660

    I've had a new project on my blog this year which is to pick my 5 favourite photos from the month and get them scrapped so I would like you to use a favourite photo.

    My stamps have been very neglected lately so I've decided to change that, therefore I would like you to use a stamped image on your page.

    I love circles and punches so I would like you to use both of them on your page please.

    Just to recap:

    Sketch = 10 points
    Favourite photo = 5 points
    Stamping = 5 points
    Circles = 5 points
    Punches = 5 points

    OCTOBER Week 1

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On Tuesday night I am going with friends to see Cliff Richard in concert (yes I know some of you are groaning!) so I have based this week's challenge on his life and career.

    For 10 points please use a cliff song for your page title.



    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego..._Richard_songs


    During his long career, Cliff has achieved a No.1 in 5 different decades, so for another 10 points, please use 5 of something on your page.

    As well as his British property, Cliff owns a house in Barbados and a vineyard in Portugal, so for a further 10 points use something foreign or foreign looking on your LO.



    To summarise:
    1. Use a Cliff song for your title
    2. Use 5 of something
    3. Use something foreign or foreign looking.
    10 points each

    OCTOBER Week 2

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As Autumn is well and truly with us now we have an autumnal colour palette for you


    Secondly, October is the 10th month so we'd like to see 10 of the same embellishment, 10 letters in your title, 10 words in your journalling, or any other way you can think of to incorporate the number 10.

    And finally, please choose one of the following for your theme
    - music, for Pavarotti's birthdate, 12th October 1935
    - sport, for the opening of the Olympics in Mexico, 12th October 1969
    - travel, for Christopher Columbus becoming the first European to land in the Americas, 12th October 1492
    - animals, real or toy, for Paddington Bear making his debut 13th October 1958
    - food, for World Food Day, 16th October 2015

    In summary,
    - autumnal colour palette, 10 points
    - incorporate the number ten, 10 points
    - have music, sport, travel, animals or food as your theme, 10 points

    OCTOBER Week 3

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Create a border around the edge of your page, whether it’s a paper border, inked or stamped border, doesn’t matter how just create a border. 10 points
    Next up we all have rolls of washi tape lying around, so incorporate some in your layout for 5 points
    Find out an old punch/die that you’ve got (or die cut) that you haven’t used in ages and use it on your layout – 5 points
    I’m known for being the Queen of Stitching on my layouts so for the last 10 points create some stitching (and before you all run for cover, don’t stress faux stitching is allowed). But if you haven’t stitched on a layout before why not give it a whirl!

    So in summary
    Border = 10 points
    Washi Tape = 5 points
    Old Punched/Die cut item = 5 points
    Stitching = 10 points

    NOVEMBER Week 4

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A while ago, shaped papers were all the rage and a lot of us bought them in all shapes and sizes, in every colour! If, like me, you still have some left (or loads in my case!) I would like you to use one as the background for your layout. If you don't have one, I would like you to alter a square piece of paper to make the background any shape other than square or rectangle ie: Bracket shape, round, star shaped etc. For 10 points.

    Also, bunting/ pennants were very popular and this seems to have dropped out of favour a bit too.... So please include some bunting for a further 10 points.

    Finally, please include at least two photos in your LO for a final 10 points.

    To recap:
    10 points for shaped paper
    10 points for using bunting/pennants etc
    10 points for two or more photos.

    DECEMBER Week 1

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Love it or hate it, there is no getting away from the fact that Christmas will soon be with us, and that means LOTS of lovely sparkly Christmas lights are popping up everywhere we look so I would like you to include some bling on your LO.

    I don't scrap much now so when I do, I always need to follow a sketch or I just can't function ! Please use the sketch, feel free to turn it around (I rotated it for my LO)

    The late, great Roy Orbison died this week in 1988 - I would like you to take inspiration from one of his songs in the link provided ... you don't have to use the title of his song as your title, but so long as one of them influenced your page in some way and please say which song in your comments

    To summarise :
    • Use some bling (10 pts)
    • Follow sketch (10 pts)
    • Take inspiration from a Roy Orbison song (10 pts)


    Attachment 190940

    Song list : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catego..._Orbison_songs
