June Scrap the Girls

The June challenge at Scrap the Girls is a colour challenge. Hmmmm...do you think I could resist this one...LOL


Here is my layout using the palette...


The yummy pink & white pp I used is from the new My Minds Eye 'Lime Twist - Happy Go Lucky' range from Handmade by Suzanne and was the PERFECT base for me for this challenge! I also added a few bits of Jillibean Soup 'Blossom Soup'; some Hambly Screen Prints transparency; Green Tara mini flowers and The Twinery bakers twine.

I used 2 colours of chalkboard glimmermist on this LO - 'Polka Dot Pink' on the doiley and 'Chalk' flicked directly onto the cardstock. (If you are in the market for glimmermists - either regular or chalkboard, you can currently snap them up at 25% off in the stocktake sale at Handmade By Suzanne. That means around $8 for the chalkboard ones!!!) The alphas were all old Thickers & BG ones from my stash.

As I said, I couldn't resist playing along at Scrap the Girls again this month with those gorgeous colours as the challenge, and I am also pleased to report that my efforts for STG last month earned me a 3rd place! I was very excited to know that my layout (which I actually loved) was also appreciated by others. :-)
