so I have been doing some scrapping ....

and these are a few things i came up with ... i did these two layouts as i was doing challenges over at the sisterhood of scrap ... which is great little challenge forum ... lovely people ... chill atmosphere ... you should try it ...

anyways ... i combined two challenges and came up with this layout



it is not my design, one of the challenges was to use a Feb 11 sketch from pagemaps.  this sketch was designed by Julie Tucker-Wolek.  this was a quick and easy!  the other challenge was to use red red red ... and i just dont do a whole lot of red ... thank goodness for my Jenny Bowlin stash!


For the second layout again i combined two challenges ... one was to use a cut up die cut and the other was to use digital elements.


the butterflies and the mad hatter are all digi elements ... i printed and cut them out ... I had a lot of fun with this layout as the challenges

and i love cutting details out of patterned papers ... all of the papers used in this layout are by The Girls Paperie ... Paper Girl line ...  this line is about a year old but i still love it ... so soft and feminine ... you can find it at Tiny Seed ....


This charm is also from the same line ... the beaded ribbon i picked up at a fabric shop and the muslin ribbon i hand stamped and tea dyes ... this is my current fave "ribbon" ...  you can click on any of the images if you want them to expand and geez i wish i had a better point and shoot ... mine does not take very good low light pictures ...

thanks for stopping by  ...

Peace, love & paper
