My favourite layout to date

I completed a layout yesterday and felt in the mood again to scrap today so I headed over to RSS to see what other challenges they had for the month. The colour challenge was everything I love ... flowers, rhinestones and chipboard then pink, blue and black to be used. And once I had the idea, a few hours later this is what I came up with


I can’t believe two layouts in 2 days, I am on a roll, hope I wanna do more tomorrow.

It wasn't an easy process getting the tulle to stick down so here is my layout at the beginning


Its there under the wood – still not completely stuck down but once in the album she’ll be right!


Here are a couple of close ups




It is my favourite photo of me with my mum, brother and sister taken a couple of years ago and to date this is now my favourite layout


This next layout took me about an 1 hour to make ... that was once I decided on how I was going to do it! I realised that I hadn’t even put my Happy Halloween ribbon on my website (real bad blonde moment) and I have 3 years of Halloween photos to scrapbook, so I started with last years ... the first year I dressed up as well ... to scare the crap out of the kids in our complex who came to the door ... it worked LOL especially as I turned off all the lights and just stuck my head around the door, wearing a mask, to greet them

It is quite a big thing in our complex. A week before hand everyone gets a note (usually organised by me) that they put on their door or window if they want the kids to visit their unit. This is so they aren’t annoying the boring farts who live here ;)
I swear the first year we were here the angels had enough lollies to last them until Christmas!

And so here is my layout using Making Memories Spellbound Pattern Papers with Nightfall and Orange Coredinations.







I have to admit I got the idea for the eyes on the scrapware tree from a blog I saw a while back, and I apologise in advance if it was your blog, I really must write down these important details to acknowledge the cleverness of others. The tree has been painted and inked


As always 99% of all products used you can get from my website.

Hope you like and a big thanks to everyone who visits and leaves me encouraging comments, it means sooooooooooo much to me
