Scrap the Girls January

After finding myself with a burst of creativity last night, I went searching for a challenge to do and as soon as I saw the gorgeous sketch designed by Rikki Graziani for this month's Scrap the Girls challenge, I HAD to do it! (You can find Rikki's sketch HERE)

Here's my take on it...

{Papers by Heidi Swapp}
Published in Scrapbooking Memories Vol 18 No 5

This layout was another "stash buster"for me. I used up some scraps from Heidi Swapp's 'Sugar Chic' range I had been hoarding, which I fussy cut, along with a sheet from the 'Dreamy' collection, and I think they worked beautifully together. (And as a bonus, I managed to use a photo I had also been hoarding - and it's a 5x7 too!) 

Besides the papers, I also included some paper doilies, a Prima pearl flourish (that I cut into pieces), a few wood veneer pieces, and plenty of pretty blooms and leaves...



(And yes, more journaling in my own handwriting - the quest continues!)


Thanks for stopping by and for everyone who takes the time to leave me a comment. The cool, showery weather we have here at the moment is obviously good for my mojo, so am off to try and create some more! X
