A new month...

and boy the www is buzzing with lots of new scrappy challenges! I love it!! April would have to be my favourite month of the year...not only did I get married in April but I LOVE the weather...this time of year is just PERFECT! Anyway, back to scrapping....

First up I will share with you the challenge for WHITE WITH 1.

I found this one particularly hard...not only did I have very little Olive Green in my stash but I kept wanting to add!! So I hope you will find this one a challenge just as much as I did. 

White with Olive Green + TWINE (love that part of!!)

Just Hanging Out - Using some Bo Bunny paper from the Cambridge Range...used some new Prima (flower and mask) with Olive Green Mist.

Check out all the other amazing layouts from the Creative Team HERE.


Is a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 challenge, you must create a layout based on the following...

1 piece of Kraft cardstock
2 photos smaller than 6x4
3 different Alphas
4 different patterned papers (yes you can use the reverse side of one sheet as long as the pattern is different)
5 different embellishments

** Paint, Mists, Distressing and any other technique based creating are not classed as embellishments, you can still use these of course but they do not count as your 5 embellishments, you need to think chipboard, ribbon, twine, journal blocks, flowers, buttons, jewels/bling, pins, tapes, stickers, handmade embellishments, paper clips, lace, tabs, diecuts etc...

My Special Two

Also the Stuck?! Sketch for the 1st of April is is the sketch...I will reveal mine on the you need to be!!

Looking forward to another great scrappy month... :))
Happy Friday :))
