White With 1 Jan Challenge

Hi Girls,

Happy Australia Day... hope you all have a fabulous day!!  It's been very busy here as I've had a lot going on and haven't had much time to scrap other than commitments for next month, but I decided to stay up last night and spend a bit of time scrapping and created a LO for this month's White With 1 challenge, which is:


A Beautiful Life

Love the contrast of white with lime green.  I wanted the focus to be on this lovely photo of Brittany which I took recently, so I used a gorgeous chippie frame from Scrapmatts to draw the eye.  I painted the frame green and accented it with some flowers, muslin, sweet pearl buttons and a few Scrapmatts flourishes.

My mojo has been a bit sluggish lately, so I was pleasantly surprised with how this page came out.

A couple of Sneaks

Will be around in the next few days, checking out all your beautiful blogs and leaving some love. Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love.  Your beautiful comments really make my day :))
