4 Layouts for the SCRAP SUITE Challenges.

Hello there,
How is your day going? It is hot and desperately dry here. Too hot to be outside, so inside it is, and what better way to pass the day then by scrapping...!! I think so!!

The last week or so I have been creating layouts for this months challenges over at the THE SCRAP SUITE which is run by D-LISH SCRAPS on Facebook..  I challenged myself to see if I could get 4 layouts completed as I have been such a slow scrapper of late... and yes, I surprised myself by getting 4 layouts done!!

Challenge #1.

To Scraplift a layout created by Amanda..
This is the layout I chose to scraplift..
And this is my layout..  with a closer view of details..


Challenge #2.

To use paint and patterns. I used 5 different patterned stamps and pink paint on my background.

Some closer views.

  Fussy cut flowers!

The stamps and pink paint I used on the background.


Challenge #3.
To use birds/butterflies/ bows. I used all 3 on my layout.

Some closer views.

 Gota love those pretty sequin bows!

Enjoying life.

Challenge #4.
To use green and include a list or lots of journalling..

I have used some fabulous green paint on the back ground and a list on the tag as well as some journalling.

some closer views.


And there are my 4 layouts.. I really need to just stick things down and stop fussing!!! hehe!!  And then I would get more layouts done!!

And incase you missed the post on facebook and on the blog... I am joining the Team over at Stuck?! Sketches and you can see the post HERE!!!!! I didnt renew my contract with Shop and Crop Scrapbooking, and then I saw the call for Stuck?! and as I had applied once before, I just thought I would try again..  what will be, will be.. and I was so excited to get the email saying I had made the team..  I am looking forward to creating with the wonderful Sketches, they are so easy to follow and I will be getting layouts done at the same time!! So that starts next month.. which isnt that far away....

Thanks for coming by, and thanks so much to those who leave lovely comments, it is so nice to know you have come by..  Have a great day!
