Scrap with V Cyber Crop - Vintage

What a fabulous Cyber Crop we had at Scrap with V way out of my comfort zone but loved every challenge. Didn't think I had any vintage photos to start with and starting scrapping some photos from Sarah's france trip earlier in the year then realised DUH!! I went to a Victorian fancy dress party in Melbourne back in May LOL!! I got the photos out of Dean's 40th Birthday changed them to sepia and now have scrapped them for my album.

Challenge 1 was a fantastic challenge with Jodi being a inspirational scraplift this was make take on the challenge. thoroughly loved doing this layout and really do like how it turned out even though it's not very vintage looking LOL!!

Then there was challenge 2 with Phillipa giving us a challenge 54321
we had to have 5 patterned papers
4 flowers
3 chipboard pieces
2 ribbons
1 material
this was a fabulous challenge
Photo of Andrew and I dressed Victorian standing beside the old steam train that took us up to Drysdale for the party. (the train was the party train old style LOL!!)
I didn't have any material so I cut up an old (clean LOL!!) handkerchief and inked it LOL!!

Challenge 3 was a card challenge with Tarrah having to to keep with the Vintage theme we needed to have 1 or more birdcages and sheet music

Now there was a really good joke in the Bingo game on the Friday night which I put into the words. I really can't repeat here but it's to do with Boots LOL!!

After this and the surprise everyone had with that I just had to include a boot on my card LOL!!

Challenge 4 was a fantastic sketch challenge by Millie (Annette Gearside)
this was my take on the sketch
once again using photos from the Victorian theme party we went to earlier in the year
the top photo is of Dean (my best friend), Jamie (Dean's partner in drag) and I
and the 2nd photo is my darling hubby Andrew and I in costume.

for the scallop edge on the sketch I used white lace which I tea died

Then we had a Blind Mystery Challenge with Kim which was excellent too however I think I did a few things wrong LOL!! but I do like the end result though
Photo of my best friend Dean and his partner Jamie (who makes a stunning woman)
and there is that boot again LOL!! had to add the boot not just because of Bingo but Jamie wore the most amazing pair of boots that night.

Now last month and this month we have added ATC challenge where the winner receives all the ATC's from the challenge. Am so loving the ATC's right now even though it takes longer than a layout LOL!! this is only the 2nd ATC I've ever done.

Now I can't forget Sarah. My sweet 18 year old daughter participated in this Cyber Crop. It was so lovely to have her with me that weekend working on our challenges and I think she did a fabulous job too considering she hasn't scrapped for sometime.

Here are Sarah's layouts for the Cyber Crop Challenges
