Massive Weekly Challenge Catch-Up!

I did get all these done on time, but my lack of mojo and general enthusiasm has meant me not taking the pictures in time and getting them loaded onto UKS. So here are a bunch of layouts for weekly challenges taken yesterday in rather dodgy light!

Baby Blue / 3 of Something / Bunting / Celebration
Last Christmas with both sets of Parentals.

Ice cream colours / Change / Stripes / Journalling
Me as a child. I was able to use up a lot of bits of Crate Paper - Blue Hill that I've had lying around for ages.

Guilty Pleasure / Chocolate Brown / Circle
John and I indulging in morning tea at Little Bettys in York. I saved one of the doily things that go under tea cups to catch the drips - gotta love emphemera. Also managed to use one of the beautiful Lakeland doilies that I've been stroking for a while.

Different Fonts / Inspired by Nature /Make an Embellishment
Used some of the skeleton leaves that Daddy found for me at a boot sale. :)

Panorama / Stamping / Altered Lettering
This one is actually current! Grand Canyon from North Rim. Stamped journalling boxes and painted thickers.

Book Lists

Decided to scrap the books that I read each month as 6x6 layouts. After I'd made the first one I thought it would be a good idea if they were all companion pieces to the Project 12 layouts. So, from February, they all match. I'm all out of January's papers anyway, so that wouldn't have matched anyway!

January's non-matchy layout is made from Cosmo Cricket and Sassafrass Lass.

I put a star by my favourite book each month.

June isn't an exact match either, but I've stuck with the tartan theme and used the Lewis Chessman.

My mojo has gone for a wander.  I hope it comes back soon as I am completely uninpsired.  Of course, I actually do know what's happened to it so I'm not bothered.  It'll come strolling back.
