Time to share ....

Firstly I have my sample layout for Out of the Hat. This month's challenge is to use bling on a boys page, minimum of 3 circles and staples.

I had chosen the photo and decided to use the papers from the Basic Grey Lime Rickey collection and it wasn't until I was putting it together that I realised the die cut sticker set had the words "You're the Coolest" in it ..... just perfect for the pic!!!

There is still plenty of time of you would like to join in this month at Out of the Hat .... entries are open till midnight on the 25th. Head on over to the blog for full details.

I have also been working on some ATC's for various swaps. This one is for Uproar and the theme was "A Splash of Colour", background was done with homemade alcohol inks on glossy cardstock, butterflies stamped on acetate and the scroll is silver ink that has been embossed in clear.

And this one is for the "Shabby Chic" swap at Challenge Chics. Edges are embossed with Queens Gold emboss, fence is Collections chippie that has been distress painted with distress ink rubbed into the cracks. The small roses I made myself from pink photocopy paper .... the smallest was a 3/4 inch circle!!

OMG!! I won again!!!

I can't believe I won another prize!! I guess it really does pay to be in the right place at the right time!

I will be the proud owner of a complete set of 5 storage units for RW Lasercuts!! You can see the little beauties here, these ones have been decorated but I am assuming that mine will come undressed.

Wow!! Now if only I can make all this good luck transpire to the lottery .... hehehe.

On another note, if you have nothing planned this weekend then pop on over to The Challenge Chics where I will be hosting this weekends cybercrop from 7.30pm tonight!!

Some sharing ......

Okay, so I meant to put this up on Saturday but seriously ran out of time! I was asked by Shazza Bishop if I would be the Movie Extra (guest designer) for her new challenge blog, Screen 2 Scrap.

The blog uses movie postes as inspiration for pages as well as using a few criteria. This month's challenge is from the movie "Fire Walk with Me" and the added criteria were, one photo, paper tearing and zig zags.

I have taken inspiration from the colour scheme, folded the dark burgandy paper to mimick a red velvet curtain, used a paper doily as the half heart and used lots of gold and velvety embellishments to give that decadent feel to the layout. To see the movie poster and also have a look at the other pages head on over to their blog. The challenge is open for the whole month and this months sponsor is D-lish Scraps.
