UKS Weekly Challenge Submission

This week is the Rockin Ribbon Raiders turn to set the challenge over on UKS, as a member of RRR I had to make a special effort to get it right ...

The challenge we set

(1) Scrap using something moving (i.e. to hide journalling) ~ Rockin'
(2) Scrap using some ribbon ~ Ribbon
(3) Scrap using something you've had hanging around for ages ~ Raiders
and (4) just to make it more of a challenge, please scrap WITHOUT using a photo (however this does not prohibit the use of something other than a photo ~ e.g. a letter, a birthday card etc., etc., etc)

I was waaaay out of my comfort zone just scrapping, but scrapping without a photo?

But recently I was reminded about these gorgeous explosion boxes and had a play, I made a calendar which could also be used permanent birthday book? The back of each ‘page’ could be either journalled or used as a birthday reminder.

So, this was my Weekly challenge entry for the ‘Rocking Ribbon Raiders’

Something moving - 10 points - the explosion of the explosion box
Ribbon - 5 points – on most ‘pages’
Old stash - 5 points – I’ve used loads of old stash and stamp sets that have been pushed to back of the shelf
No photo - 10 points

So that's full points for me
