lets get shabby challenge #10

The challenge criteria for the Let's Get Shabby challenge is Easter. I have made this to enter the challenge. On Good Friday we made some cakes and the children loved decorating them and then of course, eating them!!

I made the round yellow flowers from tissue paper, I cut lots of circles and stuck them together with beads on wire. The leaves are cuttlebugged from painted card.
I am quite pleased with this - I love the bright yellow contrasted with the green.
Thanks for looking

walk in the woods

Hi everyone, what a lovely week this has been so far with beautiful sunshine every day.
I made this layout for a sketch (April) scrappers-challenge-blog challenge. No 04.I stamped the background papers with leaves and dragonflies. for the leaves I painted green water colour then punched out the shapes. The flowers are from a shop in Australia (part of my prize from the out of the hat challenge.

Hope you like it, I'm very pleased with the result.

daughter layout for Ingeborg's Challenge

Hi, I'm back!! I hope you had a good Easter and didn't eat too much chocolate.

I used a sketch from Ingeborg's Scrapbooking site as inspiration for this layout. Also free papers from Scrapbook Magazine. The yellow flower is made from a Christmas cracker crown that I found tucked away in a box! I saw it and thought it would make a good flower - I just cut it into circles and put a bead on wire in the centre.

This photo is from last summer - the pub we went to had a real problem with wasps and they were drowning them in J20 juice (lucky wasps!?!).
