Weekend scrapping

I'm slowly but surely feeling like myself again after a rough week with only snatches of creative time. This is what I've done so far this weekend:

First, a touch of speed scrapping with Chels over at the Scrap Boutique cybercrop. Not the best photo since it was taken at night to upload within a tight deadline, but it was a great way to kickstart my scrapping after a slow week! The criteria were ~ using the sketch, a splash of yellow, journalling about a timetable or routine, using the words day/daily in the title AND completing and uploading in an hour-and-a-quarter:

Then I finished a couple of blog challenges, some more 8x8 layouts for the daytripping album:

# Design Dollies ~ Colour challenge ~ black, purple, lime green
I used: Prima packaging, Heidi Swapp blossom, Green Tara roses, Rose Moka alphabet stickers, 7Gypsies journalling stamp

# Basic Grey Challenges ~ Week 6 Colour combo ~ red,blue,green
# Design Dollies ~ Sketch challenge
# Design Dollies ~ Elements challenge ~ patterned paper
I used: Patterned papers from Basic Grey (x4), Kaisercraft 'Flutterby' (x1), Making Memories alphabet stickers, Kaisercraft rhinestones
