Stuff 2 Scrap Colour Challenge

Follow Your Heart

Have a very sick girl here at the moment... Brittany came home from a ski trip on Saturday and she looked so terrible I was a little bit panicked.  Trying to get to see a Doctor at this time of the year and on a Saturday afternoon is almost impossible, so I ended up getting a Doctor to come for a house call, which was great, but  I had never done this before and didn't realise the wait would be so long.. he arrived at 10.30pm and poor Brittany had a temp of 40 degrees by then and I was having trouble getting it down.  Four days later and she's still not looking very good... so were off for another Doctor's appointment.  I think I have added another 100 grey hairs to my head!!

On a lighter note I decided to have a go at the Stuff 2 Scrap challenge for this month set by the gorgeous Chantal Vandenberg.  The colours are so yummy that I couldn't resist.  You need to create a page/card/otp using some chipboard and these colours...


Used some of my old stash for this one with some Fancy Pants, Bo Bunny and Scenic Route pp's. A paper lace doily and some Martha Stewart punches to add a soft lacy feel and some black Prima bling, Rhinestone chain from my2angels and black resin flowers for a little punch.  The title was made from a recycled Mambo clothing tag... I have accumulated quite a few of these now and forget to use them.

My chipboard elements are butterflies and the flowers to tie in with the girly theme. I outlined the butterfly chippies in black and added a centre rhinestone.

A Couple of Sneaks

Thanks for stopping by and leaving some love :)))
