365 Cards # 63, Secret Crafter # 30 and Use it Challenges

Well today was National Scrapbook day, I had loads planned and what did I manage to get done all day?

I tell you - One card!! Why?

I had both my Daughter Sarah and 2 of my DIL's round to scrap, one of my DIL's; Karen is a very accomplished Scrapbooker but Marie has never done anything like this before, my Daughter has made a couple of things but is still very much a novice.

They both ended the day having finished a complete project so both were very happy, I on the other hand got nothing done as I was showing my DIL how to make this based on the one I made the other day

Marie wanted to make this after seeing Sarah's, she has used photo's of her 2 Sons.

At the same time both Karen and I helped Sarah to make these

These have been made into the cheap Ikea photo frames that cost about £1-00 for 3, from the angle I have taken the pictures you cant actually see they are in frames.
Sarah has used the photo's from her make over we got her for her 14th Birthday.

But I did manage to get this made once they had all gone home

This is for today's challenge on 365 Cards where we had to use 8 Flowers, I have made this using the green flowered paper, printed the sentiment which reads

A Mothers treasure is her Daughter

This was cut out using my nestabilities and I cut a larger circle in Pink to add the sentiment on to, I added a green ribbon and 8 different flowers, even though some are layered I still have 8 different ones.

This also covers the challenge at the Use it blog which is to use

Flowers - which I have

Fibres - which I have

Metal -which are the brads

Tool you dont often use- I used my old paper trimmer, I normally cut everything with a craft knife and a ruler.

A card to honour an important woman in your life - this is for my daughter.

Lastly it is for the challenge at the Secret Crafter Saturday challenge who want us to use Flowers on our cards, starting to see a pattern here!

An eventful day even if I didnt get alot done, have you done anything for NSD?

Lucky you having the family there to scrap with you even if you didn't get much done...everyone else has obviously taken inspiration from you and made some fab projects.
