I haven't done a lot of scrapping since my last post.  My mojo was missing and daily life can sometimes get in the way of being able to focus on getting those creative juices flowing.  I will have a bit more time this week, so I will get the head down and tail up and finish a few more challenges.

Colour Room #8

This is my take on Colour Room Palette #8.  I love purple and green together and have used a lovely pic of Brittany which I took last year.  Used white C/S which I misted and used a doily as a mask.  Punched a circle from some purple Prima pp with a lace circle punch, then added Prima flowers and leaves and some French knots in purple.  Stamped around the border with a Rhonna Farrer border stamp in purple and added some Prima flowers with green French knots and hand stitched in green around the photo.

Challenge Heaven June Word Chall

Enjoyed this challenge.  You had to use the word YUM which I hand cut in Kaisercraft pp then drew a white border around the letters, surrounded the title with a cute banner and some heart buttons.  You also had to use scallops and rounded corners... I used a scalloped frame from MME around the cute pic of Brittany at 3 years of age really enjoying a piece of chocolate cake, scalloped Martha Stewart punch and Kaisercraft pp and scalloped a piece of check pp.  I rounded the background pp's from Kaiser and MME, then added clusters of embellies and some buttons.

Exciting News - Another Layout Accepted

Finally received a letter of acceptance for my 2nd LO for Scrapbooking Memories.  This will be published in  Vol. 12 No. 9 and is titled "Snips & Snails"
