Scrap The Girls

Not happy at the moment as I can't sign in to my blogger account due to updating our browser.. have been trying all yesterday and today to figure it out.  Luckily for me my daughter mentioned that she hadn't updated her browser, so I'm now on her computer, mucking around transfering photos and hoping this will work.

This is the only challenge I have completed for this month, as my mojo has gone on a holiday.  Really loved the colours for this challenge at Scrap The Girls.

Darling Buds of May
Used some old Creative Imaginations and MME Meadowlark pp's which I layered, distressed and inked.  I also used some muslin which I distressed under my photo for a bit more texture.   I stamped the edges and crumpled the white background paper and used a Martha Stewart punch in the corners.

The gorgeous circular chipboard frame is from Scrapmatts and the hanging sign is a Kaisercraft Wooden embellishment.  I backed both of them with some MME pp's.  Used a gorgeous spellbinder doily die under the main flower in my cluster and added a bit of hand dyed doily lace for a little contrast.
