Sweet Thing - MAS Challenge

First of 4 challenges for the month of August at Mad About Scrappin. The challenge was to use Kraft CS, 3 bright colours and some doodling. I love using bright and bold colours... for this LO the 3 colours I chose were aqua, red and yellow. I took some fab photos with the kids last year and this was one of them... there was as huge billboard advertising a lolly shop which made a fantastic background with all those different coloured jellybeans.

I find it a bit scary adding doodling to my LO's... if you make a mistake it's a real pain. I hated my first attempt so I turned my page over and started again. I love using paint at the moment, so I added a bubble wrap background in white with a touch of aqua. I doodled around the page and also doodled around some of my layered strips and flowers. The flowers have doily centres with some gorgeous fabric ladybug brads from K&Co. Used a few border punches from Martha Stewart and also some cute bee rubons from October Afternoon. The pp's used were MME, Sassafrass Lass & My Little Shoebox.

YAY!! - Runner Up Prize

So happy to be chosen as Runner Up for From Screen to Scrap for July. I had fun creating this LO. The poster for July was "Sherlock Holmes". This was my winning entry.
