2 for one at the Craft Barn

With the mojo having taken a sabbatical and now back hurray :) I'm trying to catch up with the calendar challenge at the Craft Barn there's a new one each week but all are still open so you can still take part in the past ones great idea Isa :)
Week 1 is blue and crackle. I've used Dreamweaver crackle paste and coloured it with chipped sapphire  DI love this Papermaina stencil
Week 9 is back to school. I've used Tim's on the edge die to cut my backround from chipboard ( thanks Marie I've even gone out and bought a big shot ) made the back ground with some old pages from one of my sons school books and added some red pen nope it was not there but we all remember the dreaded red pen lol distressed with old paper DI made a page with a joureling stamp and that title why was it always what I did in the holidays for the first day back in september lol then you pen leaks and you try and clean it up and it smudges. I had great fun and lots of memories making this one

Lovely pages, Von - I keep meaning to get stuck into this but other things keep interfering! Love the school days one!

Von , what a great use of the die now why didn't I think of that ! Glad you bought the Big Shot I find it complements the Silhouette perfectly. Both calender pages are perfect but the back to school was a trip down memory lane for me ! Ah yes the old red pen leaky red pen !!! Great idea and beautifully created.Love all the splotches !
