Another Fiskateer Online Crop

On Saturday, Groovy Deborah Fiskateer #2644 posted an inquiry on the Fiskateer Message Board about hosting an online crop and asked if anyone was interested. I didn’t pay a lot of attention to her post on Saturday as I was supposed to be going to my sister’s house on Sunday for our family Christmas. We were holding it early this year as my sister & her DH, along with their 2 daughters, their husbands and 5 children (one has 3 and the other has 2) are leaving for Florida on Boxing Day (December 26th is Boxing Day a Canadian Holiday). Since the girls wanted to see us before they left we decided to do our Christmas early. Unfortunately Mother Nature decided to step in and a snowstorm kept us from going. Now we’ll be having our Christmas dinner in January with them.

My sister & her husband would have been spending Christmas Day alone as this is the year their girls spend with the in-laws. With that being the case I’m going to be cooking the turkey at my house & taking it to my mother’s (my home is too small plus mom had knee replacement surgery and it’s hard to get out.) Then between mom and I we’ll prepare the rest of the meal at her house. This way my sister & her DH will come down and spend Christmas with us.

Well, enough about that. Since my plans had changed on Sunday and it was so miserable outside – snowing and blowing all day….I decided to take part in Deborah’s Online Crop. Rebecca one of the Lead Fiskateers also offered to do some prizes and a challenge. I was pretty surprised that I still managed to get 10 challenges done on Sunday. It was a fun crop with some great challenges.

Rebecca (one of our Lead Fiskateers) may be a few borders away by land and air, but I have a perfect challenge to allow you to play for a spectacular prize...

Let me see your best lo or card using borders as many as you would like. Use them around the outside of your page or use them in new ways.

For Rebecca's challenge I chose to use my Fiskars Leave it to Weaver border punch and the Martha Stewart border punch on my card.

I am wild about monochromatic layouts. Create your best monochromatic layout and be entered to win a yummy prize!

Unfortunately I didn’t get this challenge done!

With the galleries loaded with lots of holiday photos I am missing seeing layouts with warm and sunny pics. Create a project using anything but holiday pics and be entered into a prize package from Rebecca.

For this challenge I decided to scrap some photo’s from my niece and her families Florida vacation. The photo’s are of my niece’s DH and daughter. I also used Cloud 9 papers. Here's my take on the challenge.

From my own personal stash I will RAK the person who is randomly drawn after creating a project using cardstock only!!! NO patterns on this one!!!

For this challenge I decided to scrap these cute photo’s from my Great nephew’s 1st Birthday. I added a paper pieced Winnie the Pooh and Piglet to match the card that he’s holding.

You know you have them and I want to see them come out from hiding...deco scissors! Use them to create a project.

Unfortunately I didn’t get this challenge done!

OK, ok I do love Christmas and we know we have got to get previous Christmas photos scrapped so we can make new memories this coming Christmas. This challenge is for you to scrap something from a previous Christmas and you will be entered to win Christmas goodies for working on the upcoming projects.

For this challenge I scrapped some holiday photo’s from Christmas 2007 of the little one’s opening their gifts. With 5 little one’s in the family and the grandparents (my sister & her DH), 2 grandmother’s, aunt’s & uncle’s and then the great aunt – me the room was so full of gifts that you could barely move. They are definitely 5 lucky children.

Online Crop Challenge #7
Another fantabulous Fiskateer has come out to offer a special prize to another winner during this impromptu online crop. Her name is Donna and she is Fiskateer #4454. Your challenge will be to head over and leave some luv in her gallery AND create a layout using at least 4 stamps. They can be foam, acrylic or rubber stamps.

I decided to do a flap card for this challenge. This card has 2 different flaps that open up to reveal either another image or message. There were four different stamps used to make this card.

This is the front of the card.
This next photo shows the first flap of the card.
This last photo shows the inside of the card.

I'll be back with the rest of the challenges. Thanks for looking!
