What a Scrappy Life

It's finally happened ...

I've been published ... yes, I was asked by Scrapbook Magazine to take part in the 3 layouts for £10, using limited supplies. As you can see from my previously layouts I love using various punches, in all shapes and sizes, templates, hand stitching, so this would be a very hard challenge to do, not using punches, thickers, etc.





Well here the ones I produced using a Crate Paper Collection pack, which happened to be on sale at A Trip Down Memory Lane, when I was looking for papers etc to complete this challenge, I also used a Cosmo Cricket alpha sheets, and some free ribbon that came with my order.

So instead of using any lovely thickers, I drew around some alphabets that I had and added some of the ribbon to the letter. So I've added you a closer look.









A also draw around some chipboard butterflies that I had and inked the edges.



these stickers where on the Cosmo Cricket alpha sheets - which I won at my Bromsgrove crop raffle.

This was my main scrapping resolution for the year, after having one of my layouts excepted by Scrapbook Inspirations before it folded, which left me very disappointed, I was overjoyed to be asked to take part in this challenge, so this has just made my month.

I hope you like my layouts and I would love to hear what you think, so please leave me a comment.

Thanks for stopping by ...
