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!

Challenges Galore!

Spent a fab day with Lisa and managed to complete loads of challenges! (you know me I like a good challenge)
Firstly, The Design Experiment which was to scrap either red or yellow and what they mean to you. I went with red. I thought about all the things the red makes me think of and realised that alot of them were kind of opposites
Next, Dreamgirls. They have an advert on their website to use as inspiration, and we had to add a non scrapbook item and a safety pin!
I used the title in the advert as my inspiration
Non scrapbook items are strip of masking tape painted green (under the word "little", and staples. The safety pin is in the nose of one of the monsters!
Journalling is about how Ollie is going to be trouble! and that that smile of his is going to get him into and out of alot of trouble! He is just too cheeky!

The first challenge is up on Punk rock scrappers, "For this challenge, scrap about YOU! What makes you different, unique, or unexpected? What are your personality quirks?" I went for the angle of my parents and upbringing make me who I am, the good, the bad, the crazy and the sad.
Title says
they're crazy and there kooky,
they're sometimes a bit goofy,
they're altogether loopy,
the Rumbol family!
(sing to Addams family theme!!!)
All made using my first Scarlett Lime kit

This one not a challenge but is using the Feb SL kit, Ollie having fun with Auntie Carly's 30th Bd hat.
