SBT50 Challenge LOs!

The new August challenges have been posted up on Scrapbooking Top 50 and they are great! There are only 4 challenges up this month, due to all the challenges that are also available with the CC (but more about that later). The first challenge I completed was the "1,2,3,4,5 Challenge", where we had a list of items that we had to use on a LO. The items were 1 silver item, 2 paints or inks, 3 ribbons, 4 brads and 5 buttons. Here it is...

"Imagine" - pic of Brielle taken on Mothers Day, I used Kaiser "Be Mine" pps, which are one of my faves at the moment.
The second challenge I completed was the "Scraplift Challenge". We were given a LO that was scrapped by Charmane Koch and asked to scrap our version of it. I loved the original LO (which you can see if you click on the challenge link), so was happy to have a go at it. I didn't want to just replicate it though, as I still wanted to make it "mine". I took what I perceived to be the main elements - die cut paper with distressed edging, use of staples, journalling in strips and a happy photo and this is what I came up with...

"The Simple Things" - pic is of Brielle enjoying her first ever 'Freddo Frog'. I used Kaiser "Playtime" pps for this LO.

Last but not least, it is my final LO from the July challenges, which I had forgotten to post here. The "Advice Challenge" was where our LO had to focus around advice we were giving to someone else, or even ourselves. The advice had to be in a bulleted list format and it had to be funny. My LO is called "Guide to Wine Appreciation: The Experts Vs Sue". (At last, I found a use for this pic of me!) I pitted my knowledge of wine tasting against the experts...see what you think!
