And finally for today ...

Here is my last challenge of the day - it's No. 9: multiple pages, an accordion card with at least four panels both sides.

The first four scans are the front panels and the next four are the back panels.

My next entry below was actually composed before this one - it's just the way it was published and I just couldn't face changing it to put this at the bottom.
So things are a bit topsy turvy!
At least I feel as if I've achieved something today. My back has been driving me crazy with the pain, but I've paced myself through these and tried to engage my mind and creativity in the hope it would ease the pain (it didn't, but it was fun!).

A bit of a challenge

After a poor night, I surfaced this morning and have managed to do some of the challenges on Just Bex. The first is a card for challenge 1: 'All four one'.

The brief for this card was that it had to include at least four pieces of ribbons, four flowers, four different pieces of patterned paper and four fasteners, also a photo or main embellishment. I'm hoping that the 'Thought this might brighten your day' sentiment will count as a 'main embellishment'!

I decided to use chipboard flowers as a change to blooms and made the central holes easily with my crop-a-dile (if you haven't got one, you need one!)

I'm back again! I've just finished challenge 3 'Oh Baby' LO:

The next challenge I've tackled is No. 10: 'Two contrasting four words' - create a SB LO that is made up of 2 strong contrasting colours that you perhaps would not normally use ........ AND it must include at least 4 Words!

So I chose purple and red as my theme colours. The photo is John and me at Paul and Mandy's wedding reception.

The next one is for challenge 6: a LO from a sketch - it had to include journalling.

This is what it says: 'Mother and daughter sharing a huge ice cream dessert. I'll leave you to guess who ate the most! It was certainly delicious and between us we managed to clear the lot - well, it would have been wasteful not to, wouldn't it!'
