A New Challenge @ Color Me Scrappy.

Welcome to my little piece of blogland and I have the second challenge reveal for November over at Color Me Scrappy to show you.

Here is the colour combo for challenge #50 and the twist is that you need to add texture to you page.
Here is my take on the challenge and as well as using all the challenge colours I added some gold to link in with the photo. This is a page about my youngest DD who was so thrilled at finding this little bear in her stocking on Christmas morning!
This is another older photo that I have scrapped but I am frustrated with trying to find the dates that I took them as I have to go into my backup files and search for the photo amongst thousands!
My conclusion - I need to start making a better filing system for my photo's with the dates added!

For the texture on this page I started by covering the background cardstock with a sheet of light brown tissue paper then stitching my title before adding these micro beads. (that I have had for too long!)

I added some handmade paper under the photo mat and made this embellishment cluster for the corner.
This is a beautiful, calm colour combination and I would love to see what texture you add. So if you would like to play along (and who wouldn't!) all the details and the rest of the DT beautiful and inspiring creations can be found HERE. 
 Our sponsor this month is The Memory Nest.
All that's left is for me to do is to wish you a wonderful weekend. xx 


  1. These colours work so well together. I love the use of the golden micro beads. I bought all the colours and will try to use some of them this weekend.

  4. Such a sweet layout. Love the circle and butterfly

  5. This is such a beautiful layout!! I love your texture with the tissue paper and your stitched title with the micro beads!!! I have some and don't really know what to do with them, so thanks for the inspiration! :) Evie

  6. What a great way to tie in texture! LOVE those stitched letters, and filling them in with beads totally goes the extra mile! FUN!
