S.W.A.K. Challenge With Scrap Our Stash.

Hello scrappy friends and today I have a page to share with you that I made for the first of the challenges at Scrap Our Stash for February.
Here's how this challenge works:
Create a layout with Red AND/OR Pink (50% of layout) with the following stash items: 
S. - Stitching (machine, hand or faux), W. - Washi Tape
A. - Arrow, K. - Kraft paper/embellishment

(Arrow, wash tape and kraft embellishments must be PREMADE/PACKAGED scrap products and each letter MUST be a separate item.)

Here is my page using the challenge requirements.
The background paper (Pebbles Basics) covers the pink/red 50% of layout.
S- My hand stitching outlines my painted sunburst.
W- The chevron washi I used is my favourite from My Minds Eye.
A- A pink arrow with a 'sweet' sticker on it.
K-  The LOVE kraft paper is from American Crafts.
I also mounted some of the washi onto some cardstock and used it as part of my embellishment cluster under the photo.
The little pink arrow is actually a post-it tab that I got from a stationers a while ago and these cute foam stickers are from Paperchase (they do some lovely stickers sheets, for those of you that live in the UK).
Such an original challenge for you to take part in and I hope you decide to join us.
For the challenge and prize details hop on over to the Scrap Our Stash blog HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope the rest of your week is a crafty one. xx
