3rd page - Papermania paper and layered Cuttlebug die-cut camera. He's a very good photographer. I am especially pleased with the little film strip I made (shown right) with a mini-square punch and black paper and a random selection of B&W google images printed on to acetate and mounted behind. Fiddly but worth it.4th page - Last one I made: Papermania papers and a collage of google images of main places they have visited (Japan & US) and are about to visit (snorkelling in Egypt). The 3D elements don't show well as I have photo'd it face-on and only used thin foam to avoid it being too bulky.5th page - Papermania paper with a mix of hobby images: e.g. motorbike die cut, stamped with stars and Sakura glazed with Anita's sticker in blue & gold layered over; DIY masked with images stamped over, boots, bag and glasses stamped with SeeD stamps, coloured with Whispers markers with some 3D, some glazed. Badminton racquet is a google image with 2nd layer decoupaged on 3D foam.Finally - Papermania paper, Stamped SeeD sentiment (on foam) and inked edges with silver Brilliance. Inked down the score line and stuck the paper either side of it so the paper wouldn't lift with being bent back & forth. Scored the border with the Eazi-score board repeatedly while I was making it so, after sticking the border edges together, the pages still turn really well. Husband advised against punching and adding fibres and, as it was for a bloke, I resisted the temptation!
Thanks for looking and your encouraging comments when I showed the first page I made before.

They include Julie from Arty Girlz and Inspirational who is celebrating becoming a Stampin Up demonstrator along with folks who are new to the block celebrating 100+ hits through to those with zillions (only a slight exaggeration)!

J’ai commencé un mini-album pour le 40e anniversaire de mon beau-frere. Son anniversaire est le 31 octobre donc, pour cette page, j’ai utilisé des papiers de la theme halloween de Funky Fairy: C’est le challenge cette semaine. J’ai utilisé aussi beaucoup de encre noir à vieillir le page et les phantoms.
To celebrate she is also offering candy on her original blog - Scrap Everything until the 13th.
I love the first sketch so hope to join in later.
Also whilst 'hopping' I came across Martine's Craft Table: She's celebrating 10000+ hits with candy :) She has lovely cards and also blog backgrounds.
Also found Priscilla's Skraptacular Designs blog: She has candy to celebrate her first 1000 hits: Great cards and a slideshow of her craft space that makes me want to cry with envy!

This week's Kaboodle Doodle challenge was a sketch - My take on it is upside-down and using fibres for the horizontal stripes. Not at all what I had planned in my head when I started but there we are!Papers: Kaboodle Doodle, stamps SeeDs with Brilliance ink and water colouring with Distress Inks. Snowflake cut on Cuttlebug from thin foam packing material and then stuck down and decorated with holographic glitter glue.

I have however provided one craft soirée and, after tonight's Téléthon (French charity) meeting, the number planned in the next 5 weeks has grown to 2 craft workshops and 2 craft fair weekends so I need to get cracking!
In a bit of blog-hopping relaxation I found Nikki's candy of 2 gorgeous High Hopes stamps, and as if her great cards weren't enough of a reason to hop over there!
And although it only seems like yesterday Susie at White Ribbon Cards was offering candy, she is generously offering more. Again great work to inspire you too.
And I must be the last person on the crafting planet to not know this blog: SusanBlueRobot. Susan is offering candy to celebrate 200000 hits, and that's only since April, but there were another 13000 on top when I just looked! If you have any kind of computerised cutter you MUST look at her site and give yourself plenty of time: It's amazing!

A quick card for the Sunday Stamper challenge: Masked the large sunflower to stamp the other two (and now wish I'd placed a third in the centre) and layered the bee on cream card and then tissue paper, sticking just the body so the wings can 'fly' and then attaching the bee with a foam pad so he is hovering. Stamps from an under-used SeeDs 'Sunflower' set with 'Frayed Burlap' Distress Ink. Having rediscovered the stamps I also made these couple with the same set, black Brilliance inkpad and coloured with Whispers markers.

Ma carte pour le challenge de 'Friday Sketchers' mais sans texte.
Ma boite de atelier Coha sur forum Ascrappmoi hier. C'est à garder mes morceaux de rubans. Apres, j'ai fait une carte avec des chutes! Used: Making Memories Blooms and Buttons and mini brads on the box, small primas and pearl paint on the card. Letters and tags cut with Cuttlebug Harmony alphabet.
