She brightens my everyday ....

So I know it's the last day of the month, so am cutting it just a wee fine but I really wanted to complete at least one challenge this month. I loved the criteria for the first challenge at Daring You to Scrap this month which was to make your background from scraps. Lets face it, no one has a shortage of those!

I was originally inspired by a pin on Pinterest but after choosing my photo decided to replicate the rainbow colours off her t-shirt. 

That little face brightens my every day so I thought a rainbow coloured page was very fitting. 

I raided the scrap drawers to get the right range of colours for the base and then cut a 1" square from each ... no two squares are the same. I then punched circles from some old Bella paper and folded each circle around a square.

I mounted the photo on thick chipboard and wrapped the twine bow around it. It was something I stashed away that was the wrapping on some handmade stuff I bought ... see everything comes in handy one day! ;)

Then anywhere 3 or more squares met I handstitched a coordinating button at the junction.

I really love how this page turned out and think it's my fave yet, even if it is very different to what I would normally do :)

A little slow off the mark ....

So it took me a while to get going but I finally finished my first layouts for 2012. Shop life over at D-lish has been so busy and taking up much of my time. {not that I'm complaining by any means} That and spending the last few days with my little man before he starts prep next week. I'm going to miss having him around the house, he's grown up so much in the last 6 months into such a little gentleman. He adores his baby sister and I'm just plain going to miss how he manages to brighten my every day :) 

I can't actually show you the pages as they are for an up and coming kit release at Mad About Scrappin, but I do have a few peeks to share. I'm lucky that my lovely boss lady Leanne handed me the gorgeous Lilly Bee Memorandum range and let me coordinate my own embellishments from the D-lish Scraps store.

Here are the papers:

And here are sneeks of the 3 pages I created:

{mmm ... washi tape .... love washi tape :)}

To see the full reveal you'll have to keep an eye out for the kit release at the Mad About Scrappin facebook page.
