Scrapping challenges

After a busy weekend I really needed to get scrapping and treat myself to some creative time. I didn't have time to complete all the challenges I wanted to, so I doubled up on a couple. On Sunday night I finished these layouts:

This challenge was set by Sharryn over at the Scrap'n'Crazy cyber crop. She certainly knows how to set a challenge! These were her criteria:

* black, white and orange
* two patterned papers
* stars
* chipboard alphas AND alphabet stickers

And it also fits the criteria set by Vicki for one of the "Last Hoorah" challenges ~ it has a child theme, and includes buttons and stamping.

The second one is based on Penny's sketch. And it also fits the criteria set by Lorraine over at Chook Scraps. The altered photographs were inspired by the picture provided, and the layout includes flourishes and chipboard:

Still loving orange :) And I really liked the effect of journalling on the raw chipboard offcuts, so I think I'll be doing a lot more of that.
