Another page and some ATC's ....

A layout for the Scrapping Word Pictures blog. It is like a blind scrap ... a list of materials and instructions are posted and then you take that and your imagination and create! THis is anther page for my mum's album. The little fella to the very right of the picture is my dad! Cute trunks! :-)



When Corinne decided on the theme for the May ATC challenge ..... Arabesque .... I am sure there were quite a few people who wanted to kill her!! lol Here is what I came up with .....


I took inspiration from the architecture and made wrought iron scroll windows with my cuttlebug. The windows really open and close!

On a sad note ..... Cody smashed my EK success glass cutting mat on the floor yesterday afternoon .... I am devistated! It took me so long to get one and I really feel lost without it .... I use it for all my handcutting .... soooo much easier than cruddy self healing mats ... YUK!!

Hi Amanda,
I love your little stained glass windows, they look so cute and they open as well......how clever.
Your right about the theme, when Corrine said "Arabesque", I thought she was having us all on .....lol but when it was the actually theme I was thinking What the H***! It took me weeks to think of concept.
Anyways catch you soon
Shazza

Ohhh Amanda....that would have been a tragedy about the glass mat, I have a small one that I brought then I found the large one so I think it would have only been cut on once or twice maybe! If you want it just give me an email at cm_sd68@hotmail.com

Gorgeous LO too! Luv Shaz xoxo

putting my hand up as one who wanted to say a few choice words about the Arabesque theme- but in the end it was a great learning experience. Love your arches and that paper is perfect.
