Sketch Challenge over at The Studio Challenges.

The start of a new month of challenges over at The Studio Challenges blog today and we start the ball rolling with this cute sketch.

I started my layout with a background of banners that I cut with my Silhouette then backed with some gold glitter paper.

For my title I used a PL card and Ephemera from the MME On Trend 2 line that was part of my Like Forever Kit this month.

I also added some splodges with ink in a couple of places and place some of the elements of the sketch over the top.

More ephemera in the bottom corner.

The wooden words on my page were painted white and topped with 3D paint in subtle colours to compliment the layout colours.

I hope you will join us at The Studio Challenges this month and have fun using the sketch.
Here is the link to the blog and please check out the other DT members for inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by.

Friendly Challenge - Tic Tac Toe

Hi everyone, I am sharing another friendly challenge today between myself and my dear scrappy friend Helen.
The challenge (set by yours truly) was the Tic Tac Toe challenge below.

Here is my page and I chose the left hand column (sequin's, two photo's and stitching).
The two photo's are from when I attended a celebration evening for those of us who had received a long service award from Tesco.

Here is how many years I have worked at the same store!

Using this month's Like Forever kit for everything on my page except the sequins.

I attached the sequins with my stitching element of the challenge.

Some extra stitching to add interest at the bottom corner.

Here we have Helen's take on the challenge and she has used the bottom row of stitching, pink and grey and doily. The beautiful pink and grey papers are a stack from Hobby Craft.

You can see a doily pocking out from the side of the gorgeous photo of one of Helen's kitty cats wearing a bracelet Her daughter had just finished making.

These stitched hearts really have to be seen to appreciated, just devine!

Well, another month and another challenge under our belt!
Our next challenge is this mood board I put together for us.

Thank you for dropping by.

Sweet Peas.

I'm a tad late in posting the latest reveal over at The Studio Challenges which has a Spring inspired theme - scrap with flowers!
As Spring is in the air (in the UK anyway!) we would like to see flowers on your pages. Lots, little or somewhere in between!

For my layout I chose to scrap about my sweet peas. As my plant is a perennial variety I have them bloom year after year in beautiful pink hues.
The paper I found to use as a backdrop to my photo was a sheet I've had for years, I was obviously waiting for this perfect photo! 

I was doing well on scrap busting, this cute butterfly has also been in my stash for more years than I can remember!

I dressed up this wooden tag - a roller stamp with the perfect quote, a little length of twine and coloured the end pink with Sharpie.

This challenge runs until the 10th April so even though I am late sharing there is still time to pretty up those pages with flowers and join in with us at The Studio Challenges.

Thanks for stopping by.
