scraplifting ahoy

been in the scrapbooking mood this weekend but since i don't have an ounce of mojo in me i decided on my usual recourse of a sketch, but then i remembered my two scrapbooking magazines had arrived during the week. Scrap 365 had some great lo's in this month so i set to scraplifiting some of them. I also had my scrapbook magazine delivered too, now i've been trying to unsubscribe from that one for ages but it keeps dropping through my letter box any way LOL the first one up there ^^^^ is my scraplift of the cover lo by lisa hausmann and is also my entry for this weeks challenge over on uks. the photo was taken on dad's 75th birthday when i went slightly overboard with the balloons and decorations
this next one is a scraplift of louise collins lo in the perfect patches article in the scrapbook magazine and i used the prima songbird papers and bits again. Could get quite used to this faffing around and not sticking down malarkey and i really enjoyed playing around with it.
this one is a scraplift of morag cutts lo in Scrap365. i have the papers she used but decided to give it a go with some of the other papers in the my minds eye miss caroline range. i also used one of my vintage doilies i have had for ages. i got them off ebay and they came all the way from america, although they were originally made in britain LOL used my 99p stamps for the list and i think i might need a few more sets of them in different fonts :-) also used my new spellbinders die for the flowers and my new cheery lynn dies for the butterflies :-)

this one is a scraplift of katy fox's lo in Scrap365. the photo is of dad at the lade inn at callender when we were staying at strathyre in november last year, dad ordered the prawn cocktail to start with and this is what arrived, there must have been at least a pound of prawns and it was delicious :-) i know so cos i had it for my starter the next night LOL

and finally a scraplift of riikka kovasin's lo in scrap 365. i have done paper weaving before but not for ages so it was nice to revisit the technique, enjoyed getting all painty and inky too :-)
well that's it for now, i have another one to upload but it's my example lo for the rikrak raver challenge that goes live over on uks tomorrow morning so i'll load that one up tomorrow.

Wow Debbie, great scraplifts - doesn't look to me that your mojo has flown away, when that happens to me I can't even get the colours right! Jill x

I'm so pleased to read you were inspired by one of my layouts in the Scrapbook Magazine. You've done a wonderful job lifting it! Lou x
