I'm thinking I need to have a good old tidy up of my 'craft room', especially all my patterned papers. I end up with lots of baggies full of scraps that I've used for each page and try (usually unsucessfully) to sort them out and file them back in colours...I've lots and lots that need doing at the moment, so as all the children are occupied I might have a sort out.... Or I might just do some more blogging as I'm so far behind !!!

We used some Authentique & Cosmo Cricket papers, marianne dies & MME stamps. I also brought in my old, old typewriter to encourage more journaling.....I've now got orders for old typewriters if I can find them !!

I was practicing trying to get the 'blur' with my new, 2nd hand lens, a Sigma 24-60mm F2.8. Ds4 was a very willing subject luckily...its nice to have loads of photos of them at the moment ! I used an EK sucess punch, some assorted stamps and a scrapfx chipboard key.
This was paracticing with my other new 2nd hand lens a Sigma 70-200mm F2.8, again trying to get the 'blur'. Dd3 was only willing if she could keep hold of her phone and wear her flip flops. I used a Marianne die for the leaves, Petaloo for the flowers and a Martha Stewart punch.
Another page of practicing, I've taken several hundred photos lately of the children - well those that don't mind having their picture taken - this is dd3 playing in the woods and stream near our house. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch on the inside of the circle on this LO, a Tim Holtz mask, Marianne leaf die and some Prima flowers.

Its a real Autumn theme, but then again it doesn't have to be, the dominant colour is mustard yellow, with brown, red and orange.
I think you'll enjoy it, and honestly there is no fussy cutting at all on this one !!! Really I'm not lying....

I was really fortunate that Dusty Attics design team had just released some LO's using the new chippies, I spotted the 'Art Deco' frame, and wrote to Jen@dustyattic in Australia asking if anybody in the UK had them, she replied and said she'd sent me some straight away - what service !!! They really made the page......

This Lo was made with the 'Blissful' collection, which went perfectly with DD3 and some yellow Helianthus 'Lemon Queen' in our garden. It was a blustery day, so she was having trouble keeping her hair out of her face...

The added challenge was to show some weaving or mesh..
My take on the colours and challenge is here. The winding gears up at the Pits were the perfect colour, and luckily Miss A, had a blue top on (not quite the right blue, but reasonable). I had fun making the cogs with my Tim Holtz die and used a spellbinder leaf die too. The chicken wire stamp is from Studio Calico, and its getting better to use.
The tickets are another Tim Holtz die and stamps from creative expressions. Hope you have a go at the challenge too...it gets you out of your comfort zone !!!
