Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

Scrapping from the inside out - Joy

So this months theme is Joy, and here are my LO's for the challenges
Pre-Kit Challenge - scrap a page about Joy using the colour that brings you joy
I glued lots of different chipboard fonts to the card and then painted over them all. I then journalled on some of them about the various things that bring me joy
Challenge 1: Scrap your guilt pleasure and use your scrapbook guilty pleasure.
Mine is Champagne and my scrapbook one is Thickers
Challenge 2: Scrap someone who brings you joy that is not your kids, spouse, pet etc
I love "Friends" it will alsways cheer me up
Challenge 3: Scrap someone who brings you joy, but you must be in the photo with them
Couldn't think of one so made a mini book
There was also a "progessive" challenge, where we were given 4 seperate tasks but spread out over time and you weren't allowed to look at the next stage until you had finished the previous one - IYSWIM!
Stage1: create a background using at least 3 PP or CS
Stage2: Add photos with at least one repeated
Stage3: Add title/journalling based on "Happiness is ..."
Stage4: Embellish but you must use 5 of the same thing.
Really enjoyed this!
