Rik Rak Ravers Chinese Whispers - The Final Reveal

Well after seven months we have come to the end of my UKS teams Chinese Whispers Challenge.

It has been both great fun and challenging trying to do a layout based on someone elses each month and its exciting now to see the whole sequence of layouts and how they have changed from the beginning to end.

So here is how mine started with a picture of my Mum and Dad, my daughter Fiona and me celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary at their caravan

Then Dee did her take on mine with a beautiful picture of her twins Amy and Tony

Next up was Lisa with a lovely school photo of Tessa featuring on hers

Followed by Julieann's darkly spooky one

Then Debbie's majestic shot of the House used in the TV series Monarch of the Glen

Next up was Lesley's lovely soft vintage style layout of her daughter Jen and her lovely Grand-daughter Abby

Last but by no means least is this lovely layout from Heather featuring fresh colours and her handsome son Mike on his honeymoon in Italy enjoying a coffee

Chinese Whispers - Round 7

Well our team on UKS have now more or less completed our Chinese Whispers challenge. The final reveal will be on 20th March.

This is my last layout which is my version of Dee's original layout

The photo was taken on New Years Day a few years ago before my son Fraser was quite 18 - it turned out he had sampled a couple of bottle of Stella Artois from the fridge when no one was looking and had also given a little bit to poor Spike!! I only twigged when Spike was lying in a contented manner on a chair allowing my cousins small children to pet him without complaint!!

I enjoyed doing this one as I am trying to experiment with little clusters of embellishments which other people seem to do so well and I seem to take ages and still mine look like they have just been thrown down randomly - I am quite happy with this one though

Sketch & Scrap - February

Sketch and Scrap reveal time has come around again. This month it was Ali's turn to put the sketch up and this is the one she chose from Page Maps

I dug out these pictures from Fraser's Primary Seven Leavers Ceilidh which was some oooh 8/9 years ago lol - still playing catch up with old photos. They show him in a kilt for the first time with the smaller pictures showing me, his Dad, Fiona, his sister and both sets of Grandparents. After I had done the layout I realised that without thinking about it it was the first time since my divorce I have been able to scrap a picture with their Dad in it so that means I will probably now be able to plough through the old photos and get them scrapped for their albums. Fraser will be 21 this year so I think this one will go in the album I am going to make him for his birthday.

I used papers from my last Quirky kit as they suited the masculine feel of the photos.

Thinking caps now on for the sketch which Jess has put up for March.
