April challenges - Show us your Stuff ....

First up, sorry about the sub standard photos .... the sun is not playing very nicely atm at all. Out one minute, gone the next. It's very bleak here in what is usually the sunshine state but I guess that makes it perfect weather for scrapping :)

I'm loving all the opportunity I have now to get my girly on since the arrival of our little princess. This month I LOVED both the Show us your Stuff challenges and in fact this first one I bought the paper and had the layout in mind before Ellah was even born!!

This is Cody holding his little sister for the first time .... such a proud big brother!!

The challenge was to use a gorgeous sketch by Michelle Fowler in the colours of pink, blue and yellow and of course it had to feature a handmade item. I teamed up the Elizabeth Park papers from Little Yellow Bicycle with some of Becci's gorgeous Lime Tree Creations crochet flowers.

This next one is for the second of the monthly Show us your Stuff challenges. The only criteria was to use buttons. I used some handmade buttons from Nellie G Designs and an additional handmade item of a doiley from Chip Chop Shop. Papers used are the new Summer Days range from Echo Park.
