Scrapbooking Challenge

I don't scrapbook nearly as often as I would like to, so I've promised myself that if nothing else I will take part in UKScrappers weekly challenge EVERY WEEK starting this week:

The challenge was set this week is by the Ruby Slippers, and their challenge is:

Patrick Stewart, Harrison Ford and Erno Rubik were all born on 13th July so we would like you to use stars (for Star Wars and Star Trek) and/or squares (for the famous Rubik cube). Each option is worth 5 points.

On 16th July 1969 the United States, launched the Apollo 11 spacecraft at the start of its mission to land men on the moon. To honour this mission we would like you to leave 'white space' on your LO. This is worth 5 points.

On 17th July 1964, British speed pioneer Sir Donald Campbell sets a new land speed world record of 429mph in his car, Bluebird, so add the colour blue and/or birds to your LO. This is worth 5 points for each to a maximum of 10pts.

And finally as Silverstar and her DH are both celebrating their birthdays this week we would like you to include a celebration in your LO for 5 pts.

Heres my submission:

I managed to include all the challenge elements - so full points for to my team the Rockin Ribbon Raiders ;o)

You should definately scrap more often Dawn - I'm lovin' this - I'm a big fan of 'space' on cards / pages and think it's fabulous how you've concentrated it all in the bottom right-hand - soooo effective!

I can only ever comment on your blog when I'm at my mums, using her computer lol!!

Can't wait to see next weeks page :)

Big hugs
