First of all, I want to wish all my scrappy friends and blog readers a fantastic New Year! I hope that 2012 will be the best year yet!
I haven't been scrapping at all for the last 2 weeks. My DH has taken 2 weeks off work and will be home for another week. We have been enjoying some lovely family time and lots of socialising with friends.
I have some exciting scrappy news to share though. Scrap The Girls has announced the new CT and I'm one of them! I seriously love this challenge site. Malinda sets the coolest challenges and if you have girls (or even just one, like me) you will love it too! To see the announcement and the rest of the CT's stunning examples, go over HERE.
The challenge is to create a layout using a monochromatic colour scheme. Minimal black and white is allowed and remember 'ONLY GIRLS'.
Here is my example. I love these pics of my gorgeous girl. So happy and carefree. :) I've used a combonation of Echo Park 'Victoria Gardens' and Authentique 'Uncommon' pattern papers.Prima flowers, Green Tara Mini roses, Kaisercraft paper blooms and Kaisercraft resin blossoms. The leaves were made using a Martha Stewart 'Frond' punch.
Dusty Attic. I've painted it, distressed it a bit then added some Diamond Dust over the top.
Martha Stewart 'Swirling Lace' Punch around the Edge set and the rhinestone flourish is from Kaisercraft.
Handmade by Suzanne.
I hope you will have a go at this challenge too. Can't wait to see what you create. :)
That's all for now (I think). I'm hoping to visit my favourite blogs very soon for a catch up.
Have a great week and thanks for visiting.
Until next time.
