Negative Nellie @ Little Red Wagon.

I sometimes just have a little challenge for myself and today I have a page to show you that was inspired by a colour combination on a challenge blog called Little Red Wagon.

This is the colour challenge from their blog last week and as soon as I saw it I remembered I had some scraps left from one of my all time favourite paper lines from Scenic Route (no record of what it was called). So I challenged myself to use up these last few scraps on a page,.
Now I think that Little Red Wagon is a card challenge blog so I was going to show it to them just for a bit of fun but life just got in the way and I missed the deadline.
So when I checked out the blog this week I found that the challenge was set as 'Negative Nellie' and decided to finish my page with some negatives!

Here is my page and I'm a 'little' late with scrapping the photo on this page as I turned 40 some years ago (if I told you what year I would have to kill you!) The page as you can see is virtually made up from strips of left overs and I have hidden the journalling behind the photo (it states the year I turned 40 so needed to be hidden).
As you can see the papers are exactly the colours on last weeks challenge!

Here is a close up of the flowers in the bottom corner and they were all fussy cut from a piece of paper in the line but the results are worth the time spent cutting each one out.

Here are some of the 'negatives' I added to my page for this weeks challenge, there are some more at the bottom corner.
So I was pleased that I combined the two weeks of challenges at Little Red Wagon and finished off most of the paper line, just a couple of flowers and a few inches of paper left (for a card maybe?).

The sun is actually shining today in my part of the Uk (is spring finally here?) so I am off outside to plant so seeds in the greenhouse.
I am so glad you popped by today and I wish you a fab weekend.


  1. This is fabulous! And combining two of our challenges - I'm all kinds of impressed!! I love all the details and the colours look amazing. Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon. (And P.S., we're not just all about cards...layouts and other crafting goodies are always welcome too! :-) )

  2. I love the punched holes in your background...and awesome fussy cutting. Lovely layout.

  3. Fabulous colour combo, and the layout is gorgeous - I'm very fond of Scenic route papers as they were some of the first ones I bought when I started scrapbooking! I must dig my scraps out now ! Thanks for the inspiration xx

  4. Love your page and congrat's on two challenges in one. great idea.

    PS It's a ice storm today here in southern Ontario...we are still waiting for spring.
