Show Us Your Stuff Feb Challenge!

Oops! Almost forgot to post this one! Can you believe it is almost the end of February already? I am still trying to figure out where the start of the year went!
Anyway, this month's challenge at Show Us Your Stuff is to include the beautiful quote "Follow your heart and happiness will follow" (and of course, something handmade!)

Here is my layout...

{Published in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 17 No 5}

I included a Lovelybug Bits n Bobs felt flower and a chippie heart button from Burdy's Handmade...

Lots of yummy layering and texture...

{I used a mask & texture paste, which I painted using gelatos once dry.
You can also see some of my fave EVER Hambly transparency here}

I do hope you will join in on our challenge this month - there is a fabulous prize up for grabs from...ME!!!! Lovelybug Bits n Bobs is sponsoring this month and I promise to create a gorgeous bundle of goodies for the winner. You have til the end of the month to get your entries in (which isn't far off, so get scrapping!) X

Back on deck for Wild About Scrap!

Don't pretend I am the only one who hasn't scrapped all their Christmas photos yet!
Now the kids are back at school and normal life has resumed, it is the perfect time to get those Christmas pics done! The best part about doing it now, is most Christmas themed supplies are on sale and you can grab a bargain. (See what is available in the Wild About Scrap store HERE.)

For my layout, I used Bo Bunny's Elf Magic range, which is full of gorgeous colours and cute embellishments...

I couldn't help myself but use a messy, mixed media style background for this layout. I just love the process of all the layering (and getting my hands dirty!)

I also couldn't help but sneak a bit of Lovelybug Bits n Bobs goodness onto it (isn't he cute?)...

For more close-ups, and an explanation of my process for creating this layout, see my post on the Wild About Scrap DT Blog HERE

Off the Rails Latest Challenge!

Just a quick post from me to remind everyone about the current challenge at Off the Rails - use a photo or memorabilia of a loved one. Remember at Off the Rails that you can create ANY sort of project (layouts, cards, canvases, OTP, Project Life) as long as it is a new creation and fits with the challenge criteria.

I decided to try something different and scrapped a pocket style page about my daughter's school sports day...

I included an item of memorabilia - the ribbon she received...

This challenge definitely has a prize worth playing for! Fancy Pants Designs have graciously donated a prize pack that includes a "Be.Loved." collection kit, button set, decorative bags AND an ephemera pack! (It's gorgeous - so if you win, can you please share it with me?  hehe)

There is just over a week remaining to get your entries in. You will find the challenge HERE
