Scrap Africa's Chipboard Challenge

Hi there everyone! Hope you are having a great week. I am enjoying the lovely autumn weather we are having in Perth at the moment. :)  Scrap Africa is having a new challenge and the Design Team was sponsered with some stunning chipboard pieces from DESIGN WORX this month.  They have some really beautiful unique designs and they are also sponsoring the random prize for this month's challenge.  Yes, you've guessed it.. the challenge this month is to use at least one chipboard piece on your layout. Pretty easy hey?  Here is my example.
I've used the new Kaisercraft 'On This Day' collection and added a few Prima flowers. :)  The crocheted lace trim is from Green Tara and the two top layers were punched using my Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace' edger punch.
 Another close up (or two).  The border on the outside edge of my layout were punched using the 'Cherish' Punch Around the Page Set.
This is one of the chipboard pieces that were sent to me by the lovely Denise from Scrap Africa.  I love the words and it says pretty much exactly how I feel about my DD. :)
 The chippie frame around my photo is also one from Design Worx.
I hope you are inspired to play along with this challenge.  You can check out the beautiful examples of the rest of the DT HERE.  You have until the end of May to play along.
Thank you for visitng and enjoy the rest of your week.
Until next time!

A beautiful and delicate LO Marelize. You always use the delicate chipboard so perfectly. The title work is beautiful! I am thinking that a Silhouette might be bought in early January when I can spend again. Looks like it makes such beautiful things.

Your chippies were used to perfection. Love the frame and I love the phrase too. The layout is so soft and feminine...and the border you created below it is beautiful.
