August Weekly Challenges

Well I have a little challenge going with myself, Lisa and Sandra on UKS that we can do all of the weekly challenges in August!

So far so good as I did Week 1 whilst I was at the caravan. A layout of my daughter's friend Jade for her album I am making for her 18th birthday

This week's challenge looked a bit trickier, multiple photos and a sketch which I loved but which had loads of elements to it. I decided that the grid like pattern on it would look good sewed but as I havent yet learned to thread up or work my mini sewing machine I had to do it by hand. Blooming heck that took a while and was tricky at night in low light. However I got it finished. I also did a wee bit of sewing accross the middle and again it was tough to sew through cardstock, patterned paper, foam pads and photos. I am pleased with the results.

Just need to hope now that the next couple of weeks challenges are doable as I am on a roll. I know Lisa has done the first two weeks so its over to Sandra now lol.


  1. Yeah, yeah ok I'll be doing week 2's before the end of the week, week 1's was done last week, and blogged, so ner lol.

    I'm super impressed with the hand stitching, goodness I can imagine how long it took, stll really worth it. :)

  2. Great layouts for the weekly challenges. :)The sketch for week 2 is really fab.

  3. How lovely to craft on holiday, love those LOs especially all that hand stitching.
